I never had believed in any government cover-up until after I had read Jim Marrs' excellent book on the JFK murder, "Crossfire" Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy which explained every aspect of the government's involvement....even before Oswald was shot. It was an eye-opener....and this book on Roswell is of the same high-caliber of writing and reporting. If ever there was a cover-up by the government, this is it. It is an event that makes Watergate look 'Mickey-Mouse' by comparison.
With an excellent detailed timeline of events, every aspect is covered, including the details of how the witnesses were silenced with death threats. (Yes, you heard that right....and I have seen live interviews of them saying this). As of this date, 600 witnesses have been located and interviewed concerning this 1947 event, right down to the man who delivered food to the Roswell base. And, if you want another excellent book by the same group of authors who go into those details about the witnesses, you need to see "Witness to Roswell" Witness to Roswell: Unmasking the Government's Biggest Cover-up (Revised and Expanded Edition) which explains in detail the children and parents who had their lives threatened if they disclosed what they had seen and heard. Many base military personnel who held key jobs in the crash clean-up or had direct knowledge, were shipped out to other bases (and not together) to keep them isolated from telling their story....right down to the base Chaplain who was shipped out within days of the event). Keep in mind, that many of these actually saw the debris field, and handled the material from the downed craft.
And then, there were the 'higher-ups' who orchestrated the cover-up, making Major Marcel (the Roswell base Intelligence Officer who had done the original investigation) the 'fall-guy' for the fake 'weather balloon story, in a press conference which General Roger Ramey had called in his office. Ramey lied to the public by stating the debris which Marcel had flown up to his office at Fort Worth, was nothing more than weather balloon material (which had been brought in, by the way, while Marcel had been taken into a side map room, the fake debris having been substituted for the real thing; then bringing Marcel back into the room and posing for photographs with that fake material. Ramey should have been ashamed for perpetrating such a falsehood on the American public....and 'using' Marcel in such a way that it damaged his reputation. After the photo-op, Marcel was sequestered at the Fort Worth base and not allowed to return to Roswell until the next day, to ensure he didn't have a chance to answer any reporter's questions. . Another key individual who knew what was going on was Sheridan Cavitt, who worked intelligence at the Roswell base. He has lied consistently....you heard that right: Lied about his involvement in the case and even his presence at the crash site debris field....which was clearly contradicted by first-hand witnesses who have gone on the record! This man is a prime example of government cover-up in this case. He also knew about the telephone lines of various key players in the story that were tapped for information....even years after the 1947 event. This is why witnesses today will tell, even a serious investigator, that they are willing to talk....then days later, after being visited by the "suits," will shut-up and refuse to talk; having been verbally threatened. This has happened over and over and over again! No cover-up? Think again!
If you read either or both of these books, now in paperback, you will come away no longer a skeptic about what the government is capable of doing and the lengths they will go in covering up the truth.
