The Devil Spawn Of Dr. Mengele
by Billy Cox

The devil spawn of Dr. Mengele

OK, so now we know the UFOnauts who plummeted into a desert
ranch outside Roswell, N.M., in 1947 weren't USAF crash-test
dummies from 1950s, as the Pentagon asserted in its "final
report" in 1997. And no, they weren't experimental mutants
from a secret World War II Japanese balloon project advocated in
2005 by Nick Redfern in Body Snatchers in the Desert: The
Horrible Truth at the Heart of the Roswell Story.

They were child victims of Nazi quack doctor Joseph Mengele, who
was in cahoots with Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.

Hey, yo, wait a minute. There's something I forgot to do. Hang
on. Back in a blink.

So anyway. Yeah, when I heard about how Annie Jacobsen's Area
51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base
had solved the riddle, it was definitely refreshing because it
made perfect sense. Stalin and Mengele conspiring to trigger a
"War of the Worlds"-like panic in the U.S. by stuffing
surgically deformed children into a captured Nazi Horten flying
wing disguised as an ET spacecraft =E2=80=93 that'd be just like
something those two madcap yo-yos would do.

terror into zee heart uff zee Amerikan untermensch."/CREDIT:

Jacobsen's broader history of America's murky military base is
drawing kudos from the MSM, like the New York Times, whose
reviewer offered only a minor caveat. The UFO stuff, she wrote,
"is only a hasty sounding addendum to an otherwise
straightforward investigative book" that "is liable to become
best known for sci-fi provocation."

Ya think?

Jacobsen provides the Stalin/Mengele/freak-kid alien scenario
courtesy of a single unnamed source, a retired EG&G engineer.
Which naturally agitates a guy like Thomas Carey, co-author of
Witness to Roswell with Don Schmitt. Over two decades, Carey
reckons he and Schmitt interviewed 600 people in the witness
pool =E2=80=94 military personnel involved with debris-recovery
operations, civilians, and/or their survivors =E2=80=94 who testified
to what they saw. Unlike Jacobsen, the authors named names when
they went to press in 2007. But none of the media big boys
reviewed Witness to Roswell, says the Pennsylvania businessman
with an anthropology background.

"This whole Nazi thing, disfigured children =E2=80=94 that's not
what people described to us," Carey says from his home in
Huntington Valley, Pa. "I guess if you're a journalist, people
tend to take your word more than if you're not. But there's just
more crap that passes for journalism these days =E2=80=A6"

Jacobsen is a contributing editor at the Los Angeles Times
Magazine. The first bio blurb that pops up on a Google search is
a reference on the reality-check Web site Snopes.

In 2004, Jacobsen wrote a first-person piece called "Terror in
the Skies =E2=80=94 Again?" stemming from her Detroit-to-LA flight
in which 14 suspicious looking Middle Eastern men caused her to
think maybe they were rehearsing for a skyjacking. Federal air
marshals would identify the men as Syrian musicians bound for a
legitimate gig in San Diego. No arrests were made. The feds said
Jacobsen not only overreacted, but her behavior was "in danger
of panicking other passengers and creating a larger problem on
the plane." A review of Jacobsen's article by the online
magazine Salon called it "six pages of the worst grade-school
prose, spring-loaded with mindless hysterics and bigoted

Ahh whatever. The Stalin-Mengele-Roswell thing is cool.
