I have read this post with interest the last few days, and have decided to comment. I can't contribute any information to Roswell, as I have no personal experience with it. However, my own experiences and knowledge on the subject lead me to believe that there was likely something significant that happened there. A typical coverup occurred- and a typical sloppy one at that. I grew up in Utah, where my father was a scientist at Dugway for 30 years until his death last year- he was 68. He held a top secret clearance with a Special Access Program clearance. He held a degree from Harvard, a phD from Cal, and started his career at Los Alamos National Laboratories. His father (my grandfather) is of a family that those familiar with nuclear technogy (as well as aeronautics) would certainly recognize. I work in the medical field, in a significantly less scientific manner. All that said, the last thing I'd want to do is cause trouble here. However, I assure you that there is other life in our solar system- both good and bad. I can also verify that the US government has a strong relationship/interpersonal dealings with at least 2 factions. I can also tell you that what was previously mentioned regarding "our" sudden burst of technology being as a result of assisted technology and reverse engineering is also true. Microchips and Kevlar are two excellent examples. Many "ufo's" that are viewed in the skies these days are actual government projects (drones, black project military technology, etc), though some are also non-terrestrial. The public has little knowledge of the billions of dollars that are funneled to black projects. Even the POTUS is not aware nor privy to the majority of these. It may or may not come as a shock to you, but there is currently technogy to put an end to the need for oil for energy. In fact, that technology and capability has been present since the early 70's. Only a few families make the decisions on what will and will not be released. I could go on and on about aeronautical advancements, enough that even the most learned of you would be shocked. Did you realize that there is an underground tunnel network that extends the length of the United States? The "tram" runs on a magnetic propulsion system. There are many, many underground military bases and labs throughout the United States. My father traveled from Dugway to a location in New Mexico once every two weeks utilizing this system. A crack was made regarding the Denver Airport previously. I was told by a close, extremely high ranking military family friend of my father's that there are at least 4 levels to that project. Compartmentalized construction has been key (and ongoing) for secrecy in the open. As an aside, there have been many strange noises, sounds, and quakes somewhat recently from Wisconsin to Helsinki to Beijing. I do not know what those stem from, and could only guess at the etiology.
