U.S. AIR FORCE HANDOUT
The U.S. Air Force released this photo June 24 of an aeroshell of a NASA Voyager Mars space probe prior to launch at Walker AFB, New Mexico (formerly Roswell AAF) as part of its report on the so called "Roswell Incident" of 1947.
What happened at Roswell 65 years ago? It may be a conspiracy theorist’s greatest mystery. Now, one former CIA agent says he has information that could solve it.

On July 8th, 1947, most reports can agree, something landed in Roswell, New Mexico. At first the government said it was a “flying disc” but they quickly changed their story the next day to a “weather balloon.” For a few years everyone bought that response, but eventually people started asking questions. Some say it was Stalin sending a message to the U.S. as the Cold War kicked off in earnest. Others say that Roswell was the point of first contact between human beings and extraterrestrials. Still others maintain that it really was just a weather balloon. Now, Ex-CIA agent Chase Brandon says he knows what really happened.
“It was not a damn weather balloon,” Brandon toldthe Huffington Post, “it was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet.” Brandon, a 35-year agency veteran, served as a covert agent involved in international terrorism, counterinsurgency, global narcotics trafficking and weapons smuggling, and spent 10 years as the agency’s first entertainment and publication industries liaison.
A little full disclosure before we storm the barricades: Brandon is currently promoting The Cryptos Conundrum—a new novel that his website describes as a “sci-fi, political conspiracy thriller about CIA’s cover-up of the Roswell UFO crash.”

Sometime near the end of his service, while he was entertainment liaison, Brandon walked into CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. and found something he did not expect hidden away in restricted section full of old documents called the Historical Intelligence Collection.
One of the boxes had a single word written across it: Roswell. “I took the box down, lifted the lid up, rummaged around inside it, put the box back on the shelf and said, ‘My god, it really happened!’” Brandon said.
The former agent reported seeing some “written material and some photographs” but that he will never reveal what else he saw. “But it absolutely, for me, was the single validating moment that everything I had believed, and knew that so many other people believed had happened, truly was what occurred,” Brandon concluded.

Although Brandon believes he hasn’t violated any CIA policy by talking to HuffPo about this discovery, he was very clear that he would never say more. “I will go to my grave being mindful of the two hats that I wear: My personal one and the one that will forever reside on my head as a former CIA officer,” Brandon said.
