IPEEINTHESHOWER is interested in anything Aliens or ancient history. The last book I read was The Day After Roswell by Col. Philip J Corso.
Destined to become a field and research classic, this book is authored by a retired colonel from the United States Army. Having served as an advisor to various presidents, Col. Corso (retired) has the highest status to date of anyone coming forward to openly admit the truth about the UFO which crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947.
Now in his eighties, the author had such a high level position with the army that anyone doubting his veracity must acknowledge the man had nothing further to gain by telling the truth at his age. The book is written crisply and will captivate anyone interested in UFOs, military buffs, or anyone having fought in World War II, the Korean War or Viet Nam wars. Much presidential history is covered in detail with good links as to which presidents were informed and which ones were misinformed by those they believed to be their trusted cabinet or CIA contacts.
To date, most of the negative jabs taken against the book have come from other branches of the United States military or security groups. Clearly, the author stepped on a few toes here!
The history provided by Corso is fascinating: In detail, he discloses how he saw one of the Roswell corpses, and how recovered artifacts were hidden from other branches of the military, the president, and the public by labeling these things as "foreign technology." The ruse was clever, and worked.
Other military and government officials were led to believe the "foreign technology desk" headed up by Corso's boss was to distribute technology stolen from the Nazi's, East Germans, Russians, or other military threats to the United States.
The book makes it eminently clear that the "cold war" with Russia was just a political foil against the real threat to the Earth's safety: UFOs. Corso explains how the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) treaty and the Star Wars project were intended to protect Earth from UFOs. The Russians cooperated in this political ruse since it was in their best interest to cooperate with the U.S. military, which was attempting to develop missiles to protect the entire Earth from extraterrestrial attack. So, while the cold war with Russia was the political foil to keep funding alive for these secret military projects, the foreign technology desk distributed the Roswell artifacts to various government contractors.
Corso's job in 1961-2 was to study the Roswell artifacts, read the investigators' reports, then determine which government contractor would be given the artifact under the guise of technology stolen from a foreign military power.
All contractors were told to reverse-engineer and then file for a patent under their own names. This would inspire the technology to be discovered while concealing its origin as extraterrestrial.
For example, Corso learned one of the broken computer chips from the Roswell disc was given to Bell Telephone labs in 1948. The chip was reverse-engineered and resulted in a catapulting of the computer industry.
