One in paticular that seemed interesting was in an articale titled, "What Really Happened at Roswell" by Kal K. Korff. The first few sentences of his article are, "According to much widely held public opinion, the United States government successfully recovered the remains of a crashed UFO along with its extraterrestrial occupants near Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947. In what is now known as the “the Roswell incident,” the U.S. military is said to have quickly covered up the affair and continues to shroud it in extreme secrecy even today" (Korff). He is stating that it was a government cover up. That it was possibly, truly an alien spaceship, and that the government overed it up, to stop panic, and since it was during the Cold War, to keep their secrets safe from Russia.
