The Truman Roswell Nexus: None


Following up on our posting about President Truman's Roswell knowledge, our guy Josh Sodelet scoured reams of online Truman material and the University of Colorado (Denver) library for anything related to New Mexico (re: Roswell) and Harry S. Truman.

There is nothing.

Josh notes that HST had concerns other than an alleged crashed flying disc near Roswell in 1947.

His mother died in 1947.

He was dealing with Soviet expansion.

He set up the CIA, primarily to spy on that Soviet expansionism:


And all his activity, all of it, in and out of office, was unpronounced by any indication that an extraterrestrial ship crashed in the New Mexico desert.

President Truman's daily activities, after his time in office, were mundane as best, belying any awareness of something as profound as an accidental extraterrestrial crash during the second year of his Presidency.

Does it seem likely that Truman, or any man, would go about their daily life, in a common way if they were privy to information that the Earth had in its coffers an alien ship and bodies or even debris from such?

One might conjecture that President Truman was out of the military loop about Roswell, but all the materials that Mr. Sordelet discovered shows that Truman was in on everything, small and large, that impacted The United States (and even other governments and countries).

I am no fan of President Truman, for many reasons, as outlined earlier here and at the RRRGroup blog, but I must concede that Mr. Truman was not a man to shirk something as significant as a visit from outer space, accidental or not.

If Roswell was real, then its significance was trammeled in ways that go beyond secrecy or ineptitude.

We think the Roswell was an odd event that didn't cause a President, or those in on it, to find it to be anything but a military or environmental accident that caused a ripple in the Roswell area for a few days, until it was cauterized by the Army.

That it turned into something more, and will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes with new revelations, was and is to be expected, as the UFO community has rested the UFO reality on the 1947 incident.

But in 1947 it didn't turn President Truman's head. and one would have expected it to, if it involved something as monumental as a flying saucer from another world.



  • Goddammit, Truman wrote (or at least signed) that infamous memo to Sec Def Forrestal about MJ-12.

    What more do you need to convince you that HST did indeed know the bitter truth about Roswell? If a nuclear physicist such as Stan Friedman assures you, and backs this up by verifying the Truman memo, this ought to be good enough for you.

    You just don't get it, do you?

    Or am I the one that doesn't get it?

    By the way: What did the 'S' initial stand for (in Truman's name)?

  • Schlemiel?

  • You're looking for the wrong documentation. Look for who approved the price supports to industry to start up the commercial titanium industry in late 1948. It's a fact that's what happened. Who approved it and why? Was it Truman? I think it was. Did the military have the money needed in a discretionary spending fund? I doubt it. Was it the "do-nothing" Republican Congress? I'm sure it wasn't.

    Of course, if you can't find anything about that, the titanium industry must not exist.

  • That's a wild goose chase, as far as I'm concerned Frank.

    It's the psychological, behavioral
    response I'm interested in.

    There are none that would indicate Truman was privy to a unique event.

  • You're rationalizing. ;)

  • Of course....that's what I do.

  • Truman was tough and showed little emotion about anything; witness the decision to drop not one but two nuclear weapons. Could he have been unemotional and detached about Roswell; possibly. Now James Forrestal, on the other hand, was not so tough and showed plenty of "emotion" and was definitely disturbed about...something. Did he know about Roswell; possibly. I'm not sure that outward psychological behavior gets us anywhere on this.

  • Yes, Dominick, I noted that earlier but looking at the documentation that Josh found, I see that Truman got rather animated about lots of things, other than how the press treated his daughter Margaret.

    He may have been uninterested in an alien visitation, but that would be psychotic-like.

    That he dropped Atomic Bombs on Japan hints at a psychosis, as does his firing of MacArthur whom he envied.

    So you may have a point but I would think even a badger like Truman would have been tinged in some overt way by the knowledge of an alien disc crashing near Roswell.
