This is the opening salvo of an exegesis by Kevin Randle, at
his blog [kevinrandle.blogspot.com
], about a letter from Lt. General
Nathan Twining in September 1947:
“There are those who believe that Lieutenant
General Nathan F. Twining’s letter of September 23, 1947, closes the door on
the Roswell crash.”
Kevin goes on the elaborate upon the views of some in the
United States military during the 1947 burst of “flying saucer”
sightings/reports. Kevin allows for those views and investigations to provide a
patina for the Roswell incident.
It’s an interesting ploy, to keep Roswell on Kevin’s front
burner about UFOs. (Roswell nags at Kevin, and he can’t shake it. I call Roswell
Kevin’s “Moby Dick.”)
Kevin’s hermeneutics on UFOs and, in particularly Roswell,
are always interesting and intelligent, while many of those who comment at his
blog are far from interesting or intelligent.
That said, let’s look at what Kevin is implying with his
That there is a possibility, from the flying saucer accounts
he provides, from credible military sources, that flying saucers are
extraterrestrial craft or were, at least, in the 1947 time-frame.
But as CDA might contend, where are the scientific analyses
or commentary for such a spectacular speculation?
Kevin’s posting brings in the dichotomy between Top Secret
and Secret designations by the military, allowing for a knot-hole escape by
Twining and some top level military men (and the U.S. government); that is,
Twining and others in the military were not privy to Top Secret activities and
such things as Twining’s letter, the gist of Kevin’s post, would be a curlicue
around what was really going on in the inner circle of the government.
Kevin’s two-prong explanation for Roswell and flying
saucers, in 1947, was that they were thought to be Russian technology captured
from the Nazis at the end of World War Two or they were something from outside
the Earth, based upon their maneuverability mostly.
Yet, what has happened since 1947? Have flying saucers, now
epitheted as UFOs, been accepted by many as ET craft or by others as hoaxes or
mental imaginations, even a new, unknown phenomenon?
Where is the extraterrestrial proof? (And, yes, where is the
mental aberrational proof or the unknown phenomenon proof also?)
The idea that UFOs (or flying saucers) are the vanguard of
an ET invasion, now going on since time immemorial, as Wonders in the Sky,
indicates, is ludicrous.
A crashed ET disk near Roswell is a possibility, of course,
but one so remote, considering the vastness of the Cosmos, and the pathetic
place of earth in that Cosmos, that to keep pummeling UFO buffs with the idea
is a kind of madness itself.
Yes, Kevin can’t let it go. He is obsessed, rationally, not
in the way that David Rudiak is obsessed, irrationally.
Check out his musings, and stand by for the insane
commentary that shall ensue. It’s all part of my feeling that humans are in a state of sublimated or repressed madness, and UFO buffs, especially
Roswellians, more mad than the rest of society.
