The Roswell Slides That Aren’t!

Well, what a gigantic fiasco last night turned out to be. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about: the unveiling of the so-called “Roswell Slides.” What else? Yeah, I know I have hemmed and hawed over them for the past 18 months, chiefly because of some of the very odd things that went on in the background, such as the matter of a certain computer hacker, and unidentified sources spilling certain beans.

But, last night was, without doubt, the final straw. Enough is indeed enough. It’s ironic that now we finally get to see the high-resolution image of lil’ ol’ Rozzy, he/she/it looks more like a child-mummy than ever. The low-resolution image, admittedly, did not – at least, not to a significant degree, it didn’t. The smooth skin, in particular, looked very unlike that of a mummy. Now, though, we can see that was merely due to a resolution issue. The greater the resolution, the greater the realization becomes that this is indeed a mummy.

We may not know where the images were taken (yet…), but I’m betting a freak-show, museum, menagerie, display, or something similar. And here’s why I think the so-called “Roswell Slides” were taken in some sort of aforementioned museum or freak show. Take a close and careful look at this link, which will take you to a large-size image of the high-quality slide. Forget, just for a moment or several, if such a thing is possible, the body that is causing all of the fuss. And, instead, look at what is specifically behind the head of the body.


You’ll see yet another head, which looks very much like a wolf head angled downwards, and where you can see hair, the eye, muzzle, and even teeth below the muzzle. And, you can see the back of the small placard that sits in front of it, too, and which presumably explains what it shows: the preserved head of an animal. With that in mind, it’s obvious now that we are looking at some sort of museum, or menagerie, or circus type thing for entertainment purposes.

What we are not looking at is a secret lab where aliens (dead or alive) are held. And, in light of that wolfish head that I refer you to, anyone who suggests the government has a secret lab in the Nevada desert, where they store the remains of dead werewolves, will be punched severely about the jaw and ribs.

I sincerely hope this sorry affair will now be brought to a swift, and decisive, end. Mind you, this is Ufology I’m talking about, so of course it won’t come to a swift and decisive end! It will drone on for bloody years!

Aliens are near

The biggest tragedy in this utterly sorry saga is that Roswell – in my view, anyway – is still a genuine enigma of very mysterious proportions. But, the slides have done nothing but utterly damage the investigation into what really happened on the Foster Ranch, Lincoln County, New Mexico in the summer of 1947. And, just maybe, the slides have damaged the investigation to a 100 percent, irreversible degree.

I’m sure I’ll still have much more to say on the slides as the days progress. I’m also absolutely sure none of it will be good news – at least, not for those who still valiantly cling onto the idea that a child mummy is really an alien.

Mind you, there is another theory that just might save the day for the true-believers: given the appearance of that other head, what about the notion that the aliens secretly train captured shape-shifting wolf-men to guard their craft when they land in our hostile environment?

PS: Yes, that question was meant as sarcasm, in case some people didn’t get it.

    To me, the bigger tell is the fact that it’s clearly a display case, and NOT a wheeled operating table, as had been alluded to earlier.

    I’m still suspicious that the so-called “aliens” are really just human test subjects that were used to test the effects of extreme radiation on the human body. Making people believe in aliens would be a great way of diverting attention from radiation experimentation on innocent humans.

    Jaime Maussan really can’t tell s-t from shinola, so knowing he was involved never gave me any hope that anything of substance would come out of this. The picture does strongly suggest it was in some sort of museum setting. If that is true there is a possibility that someone will recognize it from a visit (most likely when they were a child as this was (could have been) a long time ago. There are all types of strange, makeshift museums around the country so it could have been that this couple that took the photos were just visiting on a whim. It could even be that they had heard of the Roswell crash and were told the recovered bodies were there; being in the area they stopped by to see for themselves. They may have even believed it. But so what?
    All in all this whole circus warrants nothing more than a sigh and meh.

    Et tu, Nick? Richard Dolan’s take on the slides and the brouhaha:

    Richard Dolan’s Latest Post Regarding the Roswell Slides:

    It has been a day since the event in Mexico City relating to the so-called Roswell Slides. Since there seems to be a great deal of misinformation spreading about them, and the event, I would like to help clarify a few things.

    I will start by saying that although I still do not yet have a firm position on the slides, I think they are interesting and worthy of continued investigation by qualified individuals. I do not think any of this is a hoax.

    Most striking in all this are the critics. There have been a number of remarks that the body is “certainly” (a) a mummy, (b) a child mummy (c) a deformed mummy, and (d) a model. There have been other claims but these seem to be the main ones.

    Such people — all of them English-speakers — obviously did not acquaint themselves with the detailed and technically proficient treatment of these very questions by the three scientists who were featured last night: Jose Benetez, Dr. Luiz Antonio de Alba Galindo, and Richard Doble, The first two of these spoke in Spanish, and I understand there may have been glitches at times with the translation on the livestream. However, Richard Doble’s Skype interview was in English and extremely easy to follow. The Spanish speakers were simply outstanding, and I was able to listen via translation. All of these gentlemen spoke in detail and with deep analysis as to why that body was not a human being. I am not going to repeat their reasons here, but I have been assured that a website is being constructed right now that will feature full translations of their analysis in text form. Incidentally, in addition to these three individuals, there was some excellent video testimony presented from other technical professionals relating to the physical properties of the slides themselves.

    After reading the negative comments, and privately messaging with some of these individuals, it was clear to me that none of them bothered to watch the event anyway. They based their comments on a single image that was released last night via the Coast to Coast AM website. The fact that it was one image and not two caused a number of angry questions about why the other image is being hidden from the public, and so on.

    The only reason that image was released at all was because the producers at Coast to Coast asked me personally if I could get them an image prior to my interview with them, which immediately followed the event. I asked Adam Dew for something to give Coast, and — amid the hectic atmosphere of the event — he sent one image of good resolution to my phone. I then sent that to Coast. Barely able to get that single image out to them, by the way, as my phone charge was low and my connection was not good at all. In other words, I was lucky to get anything at all to Coast.

    In retrospect, all this did was allow lazy commentators to chime in without having acquainted themselves with any of the analysis presented. They looked at a single picture, formed their instant reactions, and then complained that the whole event was a hoax. I hear such things and just roll my eyes.

    After all this, and as I stated earlier, I do not have a solid position on these slides. But I do think they absolutely deserve genuine investigation. Clearly, not from the the commentators who have dismissed them without taking on the analyses that have already been performed on them. Such individuals proved to me that they have lost their game and should probably take a few deep breaths and a break from the field.
    What would be nice, however, would be for genuine researchers — e.g. scientists and qualified experts — to analyze the slides in further detail. There is already a small consensus that has been offered on these slides, and this can be either enlarged or debunked. Both directions are valid, naturally. However the future analyses goes, however, it should only come from qualified individuals. Not self proclaimed experts who immediately “know” it depicts a mummy, or that the dress depicted in it is out of date, or that the slide was “intentionally” blurry, and so on.

    Finally, I suppose I am disappointed by the unprofessional invective that I have seen from so many people (again, solely in the English-speaking research community). They act like this is Armageddon. The attacks in particular on Jaime Maussan are startling. I am not saying anyone in this field is perfect. But I know Jaime and have seen him at work first-hand. I know he cares about the truth. He certainly did not make money on this event — the current guess is that he lost money, but he doesn’t care. He was the only person to step up and arrange for scientific analyses, which included not only money for testing, but for travel. He recorded the process of the investigation, which is valuable. He did a great deal. The comments and invective are not simply ignorant, but they are beneath the dignity of decent people. If you have a problem with any of this, why get personal about it? I have never understood that attitude.

    I laugh a bit, too, when I see comments like, “this is a disaster,” “the field will not recover from this for many years,” etc. etc. Aside from the hyperbole coming from such people, it’s obvious they are wrong. Even if this were to turn out to be a mistake — well, then it’s a mistake. Life always goes on. The worst thing to do would be to avoid investigating something because you “know” the answer already. Particularly regarding the mystery of UFOs, which I consider the greatest mystery in the world, how odd it would be that investigators are afraid to analyze and investigate something genuinely intriguing?

    I suppose the other complaint I hear is that the event charged people to attend. That the slides were not put up for free. Frankly, this is something I expect to hear from children. Research costs money. Jaime and Adam Dew did not simply want to toss the slides out there to the world before they themselves had strong analyses performed on them. How is that unreasonable? Doing so, however, costs time and money. Nothing is for free in this world. And Jaime, believing these slides to be worthy of significant treatment, wanted a major venue for them. He got it in the National Auditorium of Mexico City, one of the premier places for major events in the entire world. Complaining that he charged money at the gate and $20 for pay per view is one of the most ridiculous things I have heard in a long time.

    As I said, my position on the slides is still not firm. I have been and remained impressed with the story behind their provenance — such as we can put it together. And I am currently impressed with the analyses performed on the slides themselves, as well as the body in question. These analyses are far more technically detailed than the criticism against them that I have seen. My position would change if I am presented with analyses that deal with the data already provided. Not people’s hunches or invective.

    So, to those critics, I suggest that rather than rush to judgement, why not simply acquaint yourself with the arguments put forth that support them? Once you do that, once you understand the technical issues better, don’t you think you will be better able to critique them?

    Again, if, after all this, other qualified professionals make convincing arguments that the body in question is not an alien or something deeply anomalous, then fine. If that is where the evidence leads, so be it. But the point is that the evidence must be considered first. From my perspective, this is something the critics have not done.

  • The display case setting with “wolf” head (looks like maybe a bear to me) & bits of what appear to be twine or leather thong pieces would suggest a mummy or similar & its wrappings. So, I’d guess my conclusion would be 95% sure it’s not alien, 5% slight possibility it’s alien.

    One thing that did occur is that this could be one of those fake curios, like “mermaids” made out of bits & bobs of other critters. You take the body of a shaved monkey, add a head from something else, etc. Therefore, by definition, though it looks kind of “human”, it just doesn’t add up.

    I’d like to get a high-res scan of the slide with the blurry placard with visible text & run it through Photoshop, just for kicks. If certain words could be made out, I think that might solve the mystery.

    It all fits together quite seamlessly. The aliens do the bulk of their shape shifting experiments on cattle, resorting to humans only when nessesary. The object behind the head is part of a Bigfoot. They fly the craft when the Gray’s are busy scampering about in the bushes and peeking in windows. Next question?

  • liebowitz

    That’s it! The REAL slides were replaced!

  • Brian Bell

    Indeed….the decapitated head of the dreaded North American desert plains “man-wolf” next to his fellow countryman “Zeta the alien child mummy”.

    No doubt the woman whose legs appear from waist down is a vampire dreaming of how delicious the blood of Zeta might have tasted if she had only been present in 1947. Lol
