Stalin plotted Roswell landing, new book claimsBy 황장진

A new book by an U.S. investigative reporter claims that the supposed alien crash landing at Roswell was a plan hatched by former Soviet leader Joseph Stalin to scare Americans.
The 1947 incident in the desert of New Mexico prompted one of the greatest alien conspiracy theories in history that an alien spacecraft crashed there and that the U.S. government covered up the recovery of extraterrestrial bodies.
Annie Jacobsen‘s book “Area 51, an Uncensored History” offers an even more bizarre theory suggesting it was not aliens who landed in Roswell, but a group of mutant child-like pilots engineered by Dr Mengele and orchestrated by Joseph Stalin, Daily Mail and Telegraph reported.
The book by a journalist with the Los Angeles Times is based on interviews with scientists and engineers who worked in the top-secret test base in the Nevada Desert.
It dismisses the alien story and puts forward the theory that Stalin was inspired by Orson Welles‘s famous radio adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel The War of the Worlds, which provoked hysteria across America when broadcast in 1938, according to the reports.
Using a captured, single wing Nazi jet fighter called the Horton HO 229, Stalin planned to land the plane in the U.S. with ’grotesque child like aviators’ on board.
Jacobsen claims that the landing was meant to scare Americans witless.
To create his monstrous creatures however, he enlisted the help of Dr Mengele.
Known as the “Angel of Death” for his horrific experiments on concentration camp inmates - Stalin called upon Mengele’s expertise to create his child-like monsters in return for a eugenics laboratory.
Mengele at the time was in hiding in South America having fled Germany after World War Two. He deemed the project worth risking his safety for.
“They found bodies alongside the crashed craft. These were not aliens. Nor were they consenting airmen. They were human guinea pigs. Unusually petite for pilots, they appeared to be children,” Jacobsen writes.
“Each was under five feet tall. They were grotesquely deformed, but each in the same manner as the others. They had unusually large heads and abnormally shaped oversized eyes.” “Two were supposedly found ‘’comatose but still alive.” (From news reports)
"로스웰 외계인 사건은 스탈린의 음모"
외계인이 탑승하고 있던 비행체가 추락해 발견된 것으로 알려진 지난 1947년의 미국 로스웰 사건은 스탈린의 음모였다는 주장을 담은 책이 나왔다.
로스웰 사건은 1947년 7월 뉴멕시코 사막에 추락한 한 비행물체와 함께 외계인 으로 추정되는 사체들이 발견된 사건을 말한다.
당시 로스웰 공군기지의 대변인은 비행접시가 발견됐다고 발표했다가 몇 시간만 에 기상관측 풍선이었다고 발표를 정정하기도 했다.
애니 제이콥슨 의 저서 '에어리어 51(Area 51)'은 스탈린이 오슨 웰스의 1938년작 '우주전쟁'에서 아이디어를 얻어 미국을 놀라게 하고 혼돈에 빠뜨리기 위해 외계인 추락 사건을 조작했다고 주장했다.
스탈린은 전후 독일을 탈출해 남미에 은둔 중이던 나치의 과학자 멩겔레를 찾아 내 우생학 실험실을 제공하면서 유전자 조작을 통해 보통 사람보다 작고 외계인처럼 보이는 '괴물'을 만들어냈다는 것이다.
제이콥슨은 사건조사 관계자 등과의 인터뷰를 통해 당시 발견된 것은 외계인이 나 정상적인 조종사가 아니었으며 키가 약 150㎝이고 머리와 눈이 비정상적으로 큰 실험용 인체(Human Guinea Pigs)였다고 주장했다.
이런 비정상적인 인체를 어떻게 만들어 냈는지는 자세히 알려지지 않았지만 제 이콥슨은 그들 중 일부가 로스웰에 추락했을 때 혼수상태지만 살아있는 상태로 발견 됐었다고 덧붙였다. (연합뉴스)
