have expanded the team yet again. Dr. David Rudiak, who
has done a great deal of work on the "Ramey memo"
has accepted our invitation to join us as a consulting
researcher along with Tony Bragalia and Chris Rutkowski.
Ill add here that we had planned on this long ago,
but Tom thought I had sent the invitation to David and
I thought he had. When we learned that neither had, I
then sent one.
(seen here at the International UFO Museum in Roswell,

maybe only expert) about what happened in Rameys
office on July 8, 1947. He wrote to me that, "I've
reconstructed the debris in a computer ray-tracer and
proven there is only one radar target there and probably
one balloon (or what would fit in shoe box), in other
words NOT what you would expect from a multi-balloon,
multi-target Mogul but perfectly consistent with Ramey
and Newton's description of a singular balloon/target
and Dubose/Marcel's substituted weather balloon."
also said, "Another of my Roswell specialties are
my various histories of the period. I have expertise in
how the story was reported in numerous news outlets, not
just a few. I think I have compiled the most extensive
collection of U.S. and international Roswell stories anywhere.
These stories present many angles and contradictions that
just a few articles do not provide and tell us a lot about
how the cover-up was handled. E.g., I have found only
two or three newspapers out of hundreds carrying a rare
AP sub-version quoting Sheriff Wilcox declining to answer
further questions about the "disc" saying he
was 'working with those fellows at the base.' That I consider
to be very telling and corroboration for what his family
was telling us decades later. Why are Marcel, Brazel,
Wilcox, Ramey, and the press release telling sometimes
very different stories, often contradicting the balloon
story? Why do the AP, UP, and RDR versions of the press
release differ in many details?"
expertise isnt limited to just the Roswell case,
but includes the history of the time. He emailed me that,
And I think I may have the most extensive collection
of UFO reports from the area, which I compiled from reviewing
every regional paper I could lay my hands on. This demonstrates
that Roswell didn't happen in a vacuum, which may have
prompted Ramey, Kalberer, and White Sands commander Turner
debunking the saucers over a week before Roswell blew
up. One very interesting news article I have from a Las
Cruces newspaper recounts how on the night of July 8 a
fireball steaking out of the south over the Organ mountains
broke up, followed by search lights from White Sands Proving
Grounds sweeping the sky afterward for an indefinite period
along with Brad Sparks, reworked the mathematics of the
Mogul flight number 4, which the skeptics claim is responsible
for the debris, showing that it did not come nearly as
close as Charles Moore, a Mogul engineer, suggested. (Ill
point out here the Moores calculations couldnt
bring the balloon array closer than seventeen miles.)
Rudiaks figures suggested that the balloon array
launched from Alamogordo wouldnt have come as close
as Moore suggested. More importantly, it appears that
there was no flight number 4.
Davids training and research with the expertise
and knowledge of other team members, including their various
experiences in researching UFOs, participation in the
military, and their understanding of the history of UFOs
from the beginning (which is to say as far back as the
nineteenth century and farther) and allows for the most
comprehensive look at the Roswell case ever undertaken.
Davids assistance and knowledge will prove invaluable
in this research project.
