Lt. Colonel Philip Corso was a career Army officer. He served on General McArthur's staff in Korea during the war. He had commanded an atomic missile battalion. Corso had the highest clearances. He was a member of President Eisenhower's National Security Council and former head of the Foreign Technology Desk at the U.S. Army's Research & Development department.
Corso wrote a book called The Day After Roswell. In it he referred to dead aliens, government cover-ups and backward engineered technology by the U.S. He claims he spearheaded the Army's reverse-engineering project that led to today's fiber optics, lasers, integrated circuits. He claims the Roswell technology was given to large companies to develop without telling them where it came from so they could develop inventions and patient them as their own. His story is backed by many government documents released under the Freedom Of Information Act. He reveals what was found and shows how these objects changed our life. Corso referred in an interview to a second disk that crashed and contained a time machine.
But how did this all begin? According to Corso he had made friends with an enlisted man. One day while he was stationed at Ft. Riley, Kansas, he was walking toward a guarded area and in one of the guard houses a voice said to him, do you know what they have got here? It was his friend. He lifted a tarp that had been over some boxes to reveal alien bodies floating in some sort of liquid. He was a Major at the time.
In 1998 the FBI released a 47 page dossier on Corso under the Freedom Of Information Act. It was not complementary.
The question here is, was Corso a hero who wanted us to know the truth? There are so many stories out there about Roswell that a person doesn't know what to believe. Having said that, we must remember that Corso had status. He was privy to the inner workings of the government and he says he possessed the highest clearances. The U.S. Army decided long ago that he was reliable and placed him in positions of responsibility. Eisenhower respected his advice. Doesn't this make it hard to disregard what he is telling us, I think it does?
If Henry Kissenger came out tomorrow and said the same thing wouldn't this hold more weight then if I did? It absolutely would. But as life is complicated so is this story. The man was obviously getting on in years, however in his interview he did look sharp. His story is also backed up by some government documents that are circumstantial. I for one believe there is something going on, but it may not necessarily relate to aliens. There are so many secrets and so little time, sigh!
