There are differing opinions about the press release, among
which a mere blunder of Colonel Blanchard who, in spite of that
blunder, later became a four star General. But according to
Walter Haut, he would never have done that without a direct

So, I stick to my version.

But let's test yours again. According to you, there was no UFO at
all. The press release and the balloon  explanation were part of a
highly sophisticated scenario to make the Russians believe that
these flying saucers were an American super weapon. A weird super
weapon which crashed and explained as a confusion with a
balloon. Great scenario for the Russians, indeed! Sorry, that's
total nonsense to me.
