We need to remember a few other things.

One is that General Twining arrived in New Mexico over at White
Sands on July 7. I can prove that based on the flight logs of
himself and his pilot.

Second, it was his AMC people at White Sands who staged the
launch of a weather balloon radar reflector package on July 9
leading to the full width front page July 10 headline on the
Alamogordo News of; Fantasy of 'Flying Disc' is Explained Here,
complete with three pictures.

Twining was also quoted about flying saucers on the front page
of the Roswell Daily Record article of July 8... clearly having
been tasked to get involved.

Also note that an important aspect of the whole coverup was that
no pictures were taken, and shown publicly, in Roswell. The
cover story was out of Ft. Worth, Texas. Sort of bait and
switch. Twining outranked Ramey.

Do note the EBD comment about Twining.
