THE ROSWELL CONCEALMENT by Anthony Bragalia

How can the Secret of Roswell be kept? Those doubting the Roswell crash doubt that it could ever be concealed over such a long time. Government is not capable enough to veil such a thing from the governed. They argue that the cover-up would be too vast and too difficult to be effective. And they are wrong.

The ability of government -and the private sector- to maintain extreme secrecy over an extended time is well established. This secrecy has been effective on many different levels and on many different fronts. Technologies, covert activities and even entire organizations have remained hidden from view, even over many decades.

The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) was established in 1960. Its existence was not acknowledged until 32 years later! A letter of lies in my possession from 1975 from the Air Force specifically denied existence of the NRO, although it was by then already 15 years in operation. The National Security Agency (NSA) was created in 1952. Although acknowledged five years later, many of the 40,000 employees of "No Such Agency"' could not mention their employment by the Agency -even to their own families- until the 1990s!

The B-2 Stealth Bomber was optimized in 1979 but not publicly flown until ten years later. The precise ingredients and formula that make Coca-Cola have been kept secret since 1886. Though it is the most manufactured beverage on the planet, only a core group of living people at any one time hold the key to the process. From a bomber to a soft drink- secrets of technology and trade can remain secret.

FEMA's Mt. Weather is a virtual underground city that functions as an emergency haven for the continuity of government. Built deep beneath the Earth in the 1950s, it involved the efforts of thousands of engineers and construction personnel. They could not even tell their loved ones where they were and what they were doing. Mt. Weather continued its clandestine operation until the mid 1970s when it was finally acknowledged. Incredibly, members of Congress and their families (who would be housed there in an emergency) also held the secret of this Secret City over decades! Of course Area 51 - the massive Nevada Air Force Installation- makes this same case. Risen from the desert dirt in the 1950's -and involving the lives of many thousands from all walks of life- the government only tacitly conceded it as "an operating location" in 2003.

Heinous CIA experiments sanctioned against US citizens remained covered up throughout many administrations. Project MKULTRA was a far-ranging CIA-sponsored effort in mind control of the unwitting. Started in the mid-1950's, it was not until 1975 that the screen was lifted on these government acts against mankind. Human radiation experiments involving the poisoning of children and the physically and mentally challenged were conducted from the 1940s through the 1960s on thousands of the unwilling. This was not revealed until the mid-1990s under a Bioethics Committee investigation.

Former OSS (Office of Strategic Services) personnel can only today in 2008 admit to their past employment by OSS in the early 1940s! Only after the passage of over 60 years did the government release these employees from their oaths! And they kept their oaths (like those who kept their Roswell oaths) throughout those six decades! Walter Mess, a 93 year old former OSS agent said to NBC recently, "I was told to keep my mouth shut!" Another, Elizabeth McIntosh, also 93, exclaimed, "Finally, after all these years...I can tell people who I was, what I saw and what I did." Only this year was it revealed that even famed chef Julia Child was an OSS agent!

But perhaps the best evidence that Roswell can be kept hidden is found within ourselves. It is the the "hiding" that we do in our own lives, everyday.

All of us -each and everyone- has kept personal certain things over the years. This is what makes us all human. And this is why privacy -or keeping secrets- is likely a behavior of instinct. It allows us to cope with unwanted knowledge. Often these "secrets" are held from wives, husbands and children. We even keep our secrets hidden from ourselves. We compartmentalize these secrets in our minds, the most malignant of which are buried in our unconscious. Even in auricular confession to the Holy Man, do you tell all? A tactic that most people use to keep a secret is to simply not think about it- especially in the presence of those from whom the secret must be kept. And secrets are challenging. In prior posts I have shown how holding deep secrets was psychologically destructive to some of the participants who were closest to the Roswell crash.

How has Roswell been kept secret? The skeptics have in many ways answered their own question by continuing to ask.

The real question may be- has Roswell really been kept secret? With the torrent of credible Roswell revelations over the years, the dots are now clearly connected. The ranchers, generals and politicians have told. The scientists, intelligence agents - and even the astronauts - have not kept quiet on the matter. In so doing, they have made peace with history and truth. Roswell is no longer secret.

    In the article on your blog, it reads...

    This is factually wrong. I *am* a believer in alien visitation to the Earth, I am *not* a debunker. You need to get your facts correct. Since the Fall of 2003 I have been on a mailing list for the OSS Society, which also has a webpage. The men & women of OSS were under *no such* requirement to keep quiet about OSS *membership*. They
    *were* required to keep secret, *until further notice*, about what they did, *in some instances*. Special Intelligence and Special Operations personnel were to never discuss what they did until given permission.

    Books by former OSS officers have been printed since the 50s, though OSS wasn't well known about until the 80s.

    Some Examples:

    http://www.amazon.com/Casey-Lives-Secrets-William-OSS/dp/0140113142/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223343861&sr=1-1

    http://www.amazon.com/Sub-Rosa-OSS-American-Espionage/dp/B000I534GY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223343943&sr=1-3

    http://www.amazon.com/Oss-Green-Beret-Aaron-Bank/dp/0671639234/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223343975&sr=1-14

    http://www.amazon.com/Donovan-OSS-Corey-Ford/dp/B0006C055C/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223343975&sr=1-18

    http://www.amazon.com/Secret-report-Berkeley-medallion-book/dp/0425032531/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223343975&sr=1-21

    http://www.amazon.com/OSS-Spies-Stratagems-Incredible-Revealed/dp/B000LBAQYS/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223343975&sr=1-24

    If you look these up, you'll see a range of copyright dates from 1964 to the late 80s.

    There are even more books published in the 90s.

    As always in America's Intelligence community, it isn't the existence of the agency, or one's employment by said agency, but *what one did* for the agency that is a secret. If you ever meet someone and says they were in the military, "special forces" or anything else "elite" and they say I can't show you my DD214 because it's classified, he's lying, and not very well.

    (If you don't know - A DD214 is the document a service member is given to show employers and such that yes, he was in service. It provides various details such as entry and separation dates, training, etc. If a soldier was Special Forces trained, his DD214 would say so.

    If a sailor was SEAL qualified, his DD214 would say so. It *won't* say what units they were with, nor would an ordinary infantryman's. That isn't important to a prospective employer. I'm telling you this so you have a better understanding of how the United States keeps it's secrets.)

    And for what it's worth, OSS got a lot of research jobs for it's technical division because it got results where some of the regular services couldn't. Julia Child was an OSS employee, but her big project was working on shark repellent for the Pacific theater. She
    was never a field officer.

    And something else. Agents are foreigners recruited by an agency like OSS to spy for it. An OSS member that does the recruiting is an *Officer*, just like at CIA, which inherited OSS's traditions. An American Soldier, assigned to OSS in the Special Intelligence branch, given the mission to jump into Occupied France and get intelligence, is called an Intelligence Officer, he recruits agents to get the information based on their access to that information.

    Like I said, I believe. The problem isn't that "straights" have no imagination, the problem is the lack of critical thinking and facts on our community's part (the believers like you & I.) When we talk like we're uninformed, and act like we're 13, it's hard for anyone to take
    us seriously. There is enough evidence out there that, if presented in an adult manner, instead of looking like a stereotype Dungeons & Dragons player (don't start, I'm a gamer, but I know and have seen the stereotype), they *might* start taking things seriously.

    ...I'm sorry to sound so harsh, I don't mean it, but I want "the truth to come out" like you
    do.
