Open Memo to President Obama
There is a matter before you which calls out for your attention regarding events at or near Roswell, New Mexico in July of 1947. Please consider the following:
Philip J. Corso (1915-1998) - Lt. Col. US Army; WWII and Korean War Intelligence officer; Chief of the DoD's Foreign Technology Desk; President Eisenhower's National Security Council staff (1953–1957); Warren Commission staff (1964).
........on or about July 6, 1947, while stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, I personally observed a four-foot non-human creature with bizarre-looking four-fingered hands, thin legs and feet, and an oversized incandescent light bulb-shaped head. The eye sockets were oversized and almond shaped and pointed down to its tiny nose..........I have personally read the medical autopsy reports which refer to the autopsy of the previously described creature that I saw in 1947 at Fort Riley, Kansas........in 1961, I came into possession of what I refer to as the 'Roswell File.' This file contained field reports, medical autopsy reports and technological debris from the crash an extraterrestrial vehicle in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
I had the evidence that a crash did happen here [Roswell, NM]....Give this information to the young people of the world and this country....They want it. Give it to them. Don't hide it and tell lies and make stories. They're not stupid....It's their information. It doesn't belong to the Army or the Department of Defense. If it's classified, take the classification off and give it to them!

I've talked with people of stature - of military and government credentials and position - and heard their stories, and their desire to tell their stories openly to the public. And that got my attention very, very rapidly.... The first hand experiences of these credible witnesses that, now in advanced years are anxious to tell their story, we can't deny that, and the evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident, and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered from that crash site.

It was a vaulted area [at CIA Headquarters] and not everybody could get in it.........One day, I was looking around in there and reading some of the titles.......And there was one box that really caught my eye. It had one word on 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!"
[The box contained] Some written material and some photographs, and that's all I will ever say to anybody about the contents of that box........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.
It [Roswell] was not a damn weather balloon -- it was what it was billed when people first reported it.....It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet......it crashed and I don't doubt for a second that the use of the word 'remains' and 'cadavers' was exactly what people were talking about."
Mr. President, how many long serving members of the military services and civilian agencies you command have to come forward before your administration tells the truth to the American people about an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
The embargo on acknowledgement of these truths was forged in the furnace of the Cold War between 1947 and 1952. The nation faced the real prospect of a nuclear third world war. The government needed time to understand the extraordinary developments unfolding. Few would question this decision. The Cold War lasted forty-four years and nearly ended civilization. Acknowledging an extraterrestrial presence with tens of thousands of nuclear weapons on a launch-on-warning basis was too great a risk.
But the Cold War has been over for two decades, and the policy of truth embargo is no longer appropriate. It is helping to undermine the credibility of the United State and contributing to the decline of trust in government and media - currently at near record lows. This can't go on.
It is time for you to designate a representative within or near to the White House to meet with representatives from the classified committees within the military/intelligence complex that manage extraterrestrial related issues. They would meet to seek agreement on the act of Disclosure. What assurances do the military services and intelligence agencies need to make take this momentous step? What assurances does the White House need as to access to the information and evidence that support and confirm the act of Disclosure?
There is no time for further delay. If one of your advisors implores you to wait because, "this issue is just too big to engage during an election year," reject that advice. The American people have made it quite clear an election year is precisely the time to engage the big, most difficult issues. They want to know the thinking and intentions of the politicians who aspire to lead them. They want to participate in the reality of government in their lives. They are tired of the lies and misinformation only to be told the truth of the matter after the consequences of policy are already manifest.
Lt. Col. Philip Corso could not have said it better. "Give this information to the young people of the world and this country....They want it. Give it to them. Don't hide it and tell lies and make stories. They're not stupid....It's their information. It doesn't belong to the Army or the Department of Defense. If it's classified, take the classification off and give it to them!"
