Interesting little document on the FBI’s new “Vault” part of its website. Here’s the description from the “Unexplained Phenomena” section of the FBI Vault:

Guy Hottel was a Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. The information concerning Mr. Hottel is in regard to a March 22, 1950, memo he sent to the Director concerning flying saucers.

The memo is addressed to the Director of the FBI at that time, J. Edgar Hoover. It is from the FBI Special Agent in Charge, Guy Hottel. It is dated March 22, 1950, and the subject is:


The contents read:

The following information was furnished to SA [redacted] by [redacted].

An investigator for the Air Forces stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico. They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall, dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed flyers and test pilots.

According to Mr. [redacted] informant, the saucers were found in New Mexico due to the fact that the Government has a very high-powered radar set-up in that area and it is believed the radar interfers with the controlling mechanism of the saucers.

No further evaluation was attempted by SA [redacted] concerning the above.

This particular document doesn’t say it’s specifically about the Roswell incident, but it appears to be so, although the FBI Vault also includes a document making the “high altitude weather balloon” claim for Roswell. While this information may not be new to many researchers, the fact that it is posted on the FBI website itself is fairly new, dating to December 2010. Other documents such as those pertaining to the Majestic 12 have the word “BOGUS” in big black letters scrawled across them, so we shouldn’t jump to conclusions about this document, although it does not have any such writing on it – and the FBI’s summary of it makes no such notation – so it therefore may well be genuine. Of course, if there really were such saucers with tiny occupants, it still could be a governmental experiment involving not necessarily “aliens,” one supposes, but, rather, midgets or dwarfs.

On the other hand, if there are aliens or “extradimensionals” of some sort on, in or above this planet, as many claim there are, they don’t seem to be doing much to help us, so I’m not particularly impressed. And, if the document is genuine, we’ve obviously been lied to for a long time.
