Ex-CIA Agent: It Was a UFO at Roswell

And there were alien cadavers: Chase Brandon

(Newser) – Sixty-five years ago yesterday, a Roswell newspaper alerted the world to the landing of a flying saucer—and that report got it right, a former CIA agent now says. "It was not a damn weather balloon," Chase Brandon, who worked for the agency for 35 years, tells the Huffington Post. "It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet." What's more, "I don't doubt for a second that the use of the word 'remains' and 'cadavers' was exactly what people were talking about."

Brandon came to his conclusions after coming upon a box in a "vaulted area" of CIA archives, he says. After looking through the box, he "said, 'My God, it really happened!' Everything I had believed, and knew that so many other people believed had happened, truly was what occurred." It may be worth noting that Brandon worked as the CIA's Hollywood and publishing liaison for a decade, and that he's promoting a science fiction book at the moment.
