UFOs and Unit 731
In June 2005, Paraview-Pocket Books published my book Body Snatchers in the Desert which put forward a controversial angle for the events at Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947 – an angleÃ‚Â that had nothing to do with crashed UFOs at all.
Rather, it had everything to do with experimental test-flights of advanced Japanese balloons, high-altitude experiments on human beings in the deserts of NM, and the very controversial “work” of the Japanese Government’s wartime Unit 731 that committed all sorts of diabolical experiments on human subjects.
Needless to say, with Roswell being the Holy Grail of Ufology, the book received a less-than-friendly welcome from those that so desperately wanted to hear that aliens had crashed at Roswell. Too bad. If we’re going to get to the truth about Roswell, then we need to follow all leads – whether they lead whereÃ‚Â some peopleÃ‚Â want the case to go or not.
At the time of writing the book, the amount of available, officially-declassified material on Unit 731 was limited; but just recently no less than 100,000 pages of newÃ‚Â (and formerly classified) documentationÃ‚Â on the Japanese project was placed into the public domain via the National Archives. Check out this link for a description of the new files (as well as a link to PDF versions of the documents themselves).
Is there a smoking-gun in there that helps answer the mystery of what did or did not happen at Roswell on that fateful day back in 1947? Nope. But I’m encouraged that more and more files from the dark world of Unit 731 are starting to surface. And more are to come, too.
And on a final note, while even I think it was merely coincidental, I do find it very ironic that one of the high-level meetings held at the National Archives that was designed to discuss the declassification (or not) of files on Unit 731 and Japanese war-crimes (and that was attended by representatives of the CIA, FBI, Department of Defense and National Security Council) was held on June 21, 2005 – the very same day that Body Snatchers was published….
