Witness to Roswell: Unmasking the 60-Year Cover-Up by Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt
I would like to make it clear, that the following views are mine alone.
First I question how the affidavit was done in regard to Walter's declaration.
When Dennis & Wendy interviewed Walter in 2000, he was often confused and had difficulty remembering various things during the session(s); in my unprofessional opinion it appeared to me he was exhibiting the initial stages of either Alzheimer's and/or dementia.
That said, he did in fact (in response to a question) answer in the affirmative regarding seeing (substantial) wreckage and or bodies.
I haven't viewed the tape recently, and am relying on my written notes from when I did, but will be reviewing it again today. According to my notes, I counted 4 times where he said he didn't see anything!
During an appearance on Larry King in 2003, Walter, again, appeared very confused and in this instance could not finish the segment. Prior to unexpectedly exiting the interview, King asked, "Did you, Walter, ever see any of the wreckage?"
Walter replied, "No."
As one can see the affidavit which no doubt was signed by Walter Haut was written in a very clear and concise manner including times, dates, names etc. From what I have seen myself e.g., the interview by Wendy & Dennis, as well as the public appearance, albeit brief, this was a man that would have much difficulty - to be polite - in accomplishing this task.
So, I am very curious as to how this declaration was performed; was it prepared by someone else - perhaps Schmitt and Walter just signed it? Were questions asked in sequence, and he answered them? I think this paramount in evaluating the worth of the affidavit.
Obviously, placing Ramey in Roswell on the 8th is monumental, and most certainly needs to be looked into, again.
Finally, for clarity, I don't question the fact that an extraterrestrial craft/s was recovered, i.e., the Roswell Incident, or the post cover-up; I question Walter's involvement regarding his seeing wreckage himself, and or bodies; furthermore, given his own contradictory statements regarding his actually seeing wreckage and or bodies, in my view, the affidavit that is now on the table doesn't carry much weight.
