"The mother of all sightings is centred on Roswell in New Mexico, where in 1947 (and as it happens, in the week I was born - just saying) debris was found which was, according to taste, the remains of a crashed UFO or of a military weather balloon from a secret spy programme called Project Mogul. Rumours that dead aliens were found with the debris and hidden in Area 51, a top secret military base in Nevada, were kept alive by a scratchy film that emerged in 1995, showing a large-headed, bug-eyed alien corpse being dissected on an operating table by a man in a white coat. In 2006, the film was revealed by its maker to have been a hoax, but Roswell was the first of a slew of mid-20th-century sightings which supplied the prototype of the conspiracy theory that still circulates among believers." Michael, The quote above is not correct. The film-maker never said that the footage was a hoax. Ray Santilli stated that he had tried to re-create the footage and that they had mixed some of this footage with the original footage to make the footage that was released and became known as the "Alien Autopsy". There isn't any evidence that the footage is a hoax or makeover. Nor has Ray produced any hard evidence that he actually re-created any footage. Also the footage was not from Roswell, July 1947, but was connected to a crash and crash site one month earlier, on May 31, 1947, southwest of Socorro, NM. Ray Santilli has always maintained that cameraman who took the footage and the crash site he described were 100% true. http://alienautopsy-yes.com/creatures.html Ed Listen to 'Strange Days...
