FBI Releases Roswell Memo About Three Bodies Of Human Shape'
By Melissa Bell

The FBI is stirring up conspiracy theorists and spy-minded folk
across the Internet, with its new online reading room, The
Vault. Just last week, it made headlines for crowd-sourcing a
previously unbreakable code letter and posting files on the
murder of the Notorious B.I.G.

Now, an even bigger scoop is rippling through the Web: the Vault
has resurfaced a memo pertaining to one of the most mysterious
moments in the annals of FBI history, Roswell, N.M., that seems
to give some credence to the UFO researchers.

Roswell has been the ground zero of alien conspiracy theorists
for decades, ever since a disc-like object crashed into a ranch
in the Southwest in 1947. The military maintained it was a
surveillance balloon, but UFO researchers claimed otherwise.

The memo making the rounds Monday is the Hottel memo, written
March 22, 1950, by Guy Hottel, a special agent in the FBI’s
Washington Field Office. The memo was sent to J. Edgar Hoover,
then the director of the FBI.

It reads: "An investigator for the Air Forces stated that three
so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico. They
were described as being circular in shape with raised centers,
approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by
three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall, dressed in
metallic cloth of very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a
manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed flyers and
test pilots.

According to Mr. [Redacted] informant, the saucers were found in
New Mexico due to the fact that the Government has a very high-
powered radar set-up in that area and it is believed the radar
interferes with the controlling mechanism of the saucers."

Hottel never wrote that he was discussing Roswell, or even if
the observations of the aforementioned informant turned out to
be true. However, the description of the bodies calls to mind
the infamous Roswell autopsy videos and the memo’s mention of
New Mexico is enough to set off a flurry of conspiracy theories.

The FBI told CBS that other than a surge in Internet traffic,
there was no news in the news: "[The archive] contains
information about the most frequently asked for files,"
according to FBI spokesman Bill Carter, who said the top two
subjects of public interest were UFOs and Elvis Presley.
"They've switched back and forth for No. 1 a few times."

The memo has been available, thanks to a Freedom of Information
Act, for some time, but the Vault has made nearly 2,000 records
all the more readable and searchable, so expect more
conspiracies to bubble up in the future.
