OlKu / Flying Saucer with Alien, via Open Clip Art LibraryThe 1947 Roswell, NM UFO incident is the stuff of UFOphile legend. For “true believers” in extraterrestrial visitation, it’s pretty much all they need to know. That it was not actually an extraterrestrial vehicle crash, does not matter to them. That no one has offered the slightest bit of verifiable evidence it might have been, does not matter to them. That the government has explained what really happened — over and over and over and over and over again — does not matter to them. No, the more they’re told it wasn’t an extraterrestrial crash, and could not have been, the more convinced they become that’s precisely what it was.

For UFOphiles, facts are irrelevant … they know “the Truth” and that’s all there is to it.

But it’s not as though they haven’t had time to gather up and present some meaningful, compelling evidence. Say, pieces of the crashed vehicle which have been objectively tested and determined to have only extraterrestrial origin. Or body parts that have been examined and shown cannot be from any animal on earth. UFOphiles have had decades to produce that — but they have staunchly and vehemently refused to do so. Instead, they just bellyache and whine about “government cover-ups,” as though somehow that absolves them of the obligation to demonstrate the veracity of their outlandish claims.

It’s not a coincidence that, on the 65th anniversary of the supposed “flying saucer crash,” one more wingnut UFOphile has decided to come forward and claim he somehow knows an extraterrestrial vehicle crashed that day in 1947. As USA Today reports via the Detroit Free Press, he’s a former CIA agent who says he saw the evidence in a government vault (WebCite cached article):

A former CIA agent is going on the record to say the alleged UFO incident on July 8, 1947, in Roswell, N.M., really happened, the Daily Mail and other news organizations report.

Chase Brandon, who worked 35 years with the CIA, said documents regarding the alleged landing of beings from outer space are locked up at the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Va.

He found evidence in a mysterious box in CIA headquarters … but strangely, refuses to say what was in the box:

“That’s all I will ever say to anybody about the contents of that box,” [the Huffington Post] quoted Brandon as saying. “But it absolutely for me was the single validating moment that everything I had believed and knew that so many others believed had happened truly was what occurred.”

So, Mr Brandon, you say you’ve seen evidence … but not only do you refuse to produce it, you refuse even to describe it? We’re just supposed to take your word for it? Because you’ve said so? Really!?

Sorry, but no. You want to say you can “prove” an extraterrestrial vehicle crashed at Roswell NM, Mr Brandon? Then produce your fucking evidence … or else shut the fuck up and go away. I’m not stupid enough just to swallow the line you’ve reeled out, and I’m insulted you would actually expect me to do so. Man up, Mr Brandon … and all the rest of you UFOphile lunatics. Your games and bullshit are juvenile, and insulting to our intelligence. Take responsibility for your claims. Either produce objective, verifiable evidence for them, or go away and stop bothering the rest of us. OK?
