Roswell's Walter Haut's death bed confession.

There are alot of little questions that ramble around in my head from time to time.  "Are we alone in the universe," is just one of them.  Have we ever been visited by beings from one of these places outside of our earth?  There is such an abundance of UFO material out there. Most of which isn't worth the time it takes to push the delete button on your computer.  There is one event that has grabbed my attention and has made me ponder a bit.  

Walter Haut, the public information officer at the 509th Bomb Group in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, a central figure in the Roswell mythology, died December 15, 2005, close enough to Christmas to be the best present that a UFO researcher could ever receive.  Upon his death he left a signed affidavit that every story the Air Force ever released on the Roswell crash was false.  He kept his promise to remain silent his whole life, always maintaining that he knew little about it outside what the Air Force told him to say.

I think it's worth everybody's time to take a moment to make some judgements on this man's character and try to answer a couple of  questions logically.

1-Did he do this for fame and money? In my estimation, it doesn't seem likely.  Fame and money are for the living.  He left intructions that this be read only upon his death.

2-Is he a liar?  According to all that have known him, he is a man of honor and integrity.  This would seem to be out of character for him to lie like this.

If you can answer these questions with a "no," you're on your way to a whole new perspective on the world we live in because his affidavit below contains an incredible story. 


2002 SEALED AFFIDAVIT
OF WALTER G. HAUT by Walter G. Haut

Posted 14:00 July 2, 2007 DATE: December 26, 2002 WITNESS: Chris Xxxxxx NOTARY: Beverlee Morgan

(1) My name is Walter G. Haut (2) I was born on June 2, 1922 (3) My address is 1405 W. 7th Street, Roswell, NM 88203 (4) I am retired.

(5) In July, 1947, I was stationed at the Roswell Army Air Base in Roswell, New Mexico, serving as the base Public Information Officer. I had spent the 4th of July weekend (Saturday, the 5th, and Sunday, the 6th) at my private residence about 10 miles north of the base, which was located south of town.

(6) I was aware that someone had reported the remains of a downed vehicle by midmorning after my return to duty at the base on Monday, July 7. I was aware that Major Jesse A. Marcel, head of intelligence, was sent by the base commander, Col. William Blanchard, to investigate.

(7) By late in the afternoon that same day, I would learn that additional civilian reports came in regarding a second site just north of Roswell. I would spend the better part of the day attending to my regular duties hearing little if anything more.

(8) On Tuesday morning, July 8, I would attend the regularly scheduled staff meeting at 7:30 a.m. Besides Blanchard, Marcel; CIC [Counterintelligence Corp] Capt. Sheridan Cavitt; Col. James I. Hopkins, the operations officer; Lt. Col. Ulysses S. Nero, the supply officer; and from Carswell AAF in Fort Worth, Texas, Blanchard's boss, Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey and his chief of staff, Col. Thomas J. Dubose were also in attendance. The main topic of discussion was reported by Marcel and Cavitt regarding an extensive debris field in Lincoln County approx. 75 miles NW of Roswell. A preliminary briefing was provided by Blanchard about the second site approx. 40 miles north of town. Samples of wreckage were passed around the table. It was unlike any material I had or have ever seen in my life. Pieces which resembled metal foil, paper thin yet extremely strong, and pieces with unusual markings along their length were handled from man to man, each voicing their opinion. No one was able to identify the crash debris.

(9) One of the main concerns discussed at the meeting was whether we should go public or not with the discovery. Gen. Ramey proposed a plan, which I believe originated from his bosses at the Pentagon. Attention needed to be diverted from the more important site north of town by acknowledging the other location. Too many civilians were already involved and the press already was informed. I was not completely informed how this would be accomplished.

(10) At approximately 9:30 a.m. Col. Blanchard phoned my office and dictated the press release of having in our possession a flying disc, coming from a ranch northwest of Roswell, and Marcel flying the material to higher headquarters. I was to deliver the news release to radio stations KGFL and KSWS, and newspapers the Daily Record and the Morning Dispatch.

(11) By the time the news release hit the wire services, my office was inundated with phone calls from around the world. Messages stacked up on my desk, and rather than deal with the media concern, Col Blanchard suggested that I go home and "hide out."

(12) Before leaving the base, Col. Blanchard took me personally to Building 84 [AKA Hangar P-3], a B-29 hangar located on the east side of the tarmac. Upon first approaching the building, I observed that it was under heavy guard both outside and inside. Once inside, I was permitted from a safe distance to first observe the object just recovered north of town. It was approx. 12 to 15 feet in length, not quite as wide, about 6 feet high, and more of an egg shape. Lighting was poor, but its surface did appear metallic. No windows, portholes, wings, tail section, or landing gear were visible.

(13) Also from a distance, I was able to see a couple of bodies under a canvas tarpaulin. Only the heads extended beyond the covering, and I was not able to make out any features. The heads did appear larger than normal and the contour of the canvas suggested the size of a 10 year old child. At a later date in Blanchard's office, he would extend his arm about 4 feet above the floor to indicate the height.

(14) I was informed of a temporary morgue set up to accommodate the recovered bodies.

(15) I was informed that the wreckage was not "hot" (radioactive).

(16) Upon his return from Fort Worth, Major Marcel described to me taking pieces of the wreckage to Gen. Ramey's office and after returning from a map room, finding the remains of a weather balloon and radar kite substituted while he was out of the room. Marcel was very upset over this situation. We would not discuss it again.

(17) I would be allowed to make at least one visit to one of the recovery sites during the military cleanup. I would return to the base with some of the wreckage which I would display in my office.

(18) I was aware two separate teams would return to each site months later for periodic searches for any remaining evidence.

(19) I am convinced that what I personally observed was some type of craft and its crew from outer space.

(20) I have not been paid nor given anything of value to make this statement, and it is the truth to the best of my recollection.

    I think it would be very arrogant to assume we were/are the only clever (but often not that intelligent) creatures around. As for visitation, it's certainly possible. Another (odd) possibility is one of accidental (or intentional) time travel by ourselves - those creatures may be us, but hundreds or thousands of years from now. You can't really know, either way, unless they were able to tell us. We don't quite understand enough about physics to be able to rule it out, IMHO. Of course, why that particular location? Hmmmm....
