"The Day After Roswell"..
And, also in an interview on NBC's Dateline program.
Died July 16th. 1998.
From a massive heart attack.
Aged 83 Years. Left 2 children, including Philip Corso Jnr. who stated "
This legacy is what my father wanted. It was his life. He told me much information
in the months prior to his death. He has left many documents and statements
that will be made public as time goes by"... "I have a large amount
of information that my father left me.."
A Highly Decorated Military
officer, (19 Military citations) he was buried at a Military Cemetery near
Colonel Corso's background includes being an intelligence
during the Korean War; member of President Eisenhower's National Security
Council; head of Foreign Technology in Army Research and Development at
the Pentagon in the early 1960s, where he was in charge of the Roswell Files,
the cache of UFO parts and information which "an Army retrieval team
... pulled out of the wreckage of a flying disk that had crashed outside
the town of Roswell in the New Mexico desert in the early-morning darkness
during the first week of July 1947.".... Corso retired from the Army in 1963 with nineteen medals and ribbons;
then served as National Security specialist staff to U.S. Senators James
Eastland and Strom Thurmond.
Col. Corso tells that in July, 1947 at the Roswell UFO
crash site, an Army Intelligence retrieval team found five extraterrestrials,
4-1/2 feet tall with greyish-brown skin, four-fingered hands and oversized
hairless heads, two of them still alive. One tried to run away and was shot
by nervous soldiers. The other was still alive but dying when he arrived
in the back of an Army truck at Roswell Army Air Field. He was Post Duty
Officer at Fort Riley, Kansas in 1947, the night a shipment of Roswell artifacts
arrived from Fort Bliss. Colonel Corso examined the shipment, which included
one of the dead extraterrestrials preserved in a thick light-blue liquid.
The shipment was destined for what is now called Wright-Patterson Air Force
Base, Ohio. Corso speaks about serving in President Eisenhower's National
Security Council, and seeing the memos about the Roswell incident and the
"goods" retrieved from it. The Colonel divulges how he spearheaded
the Army's supersecret reverse-engineering project that "seeded"
extraterrestrial technology into American corporations such as IBM, Hughes
and Dow Corning - without
their knowledge. He describes the devices found aboard the Roswell craft,
and how they became the precursors for today's integrated circuit chips,
fibre optics, lasers, night-vision equipment, super-tenacity fibers (such
as Kevlar plastic Armour), and classified discoveries, such as psychotropic
devices that can translate human thoughts into signals that control machinery,
Stealth aircraft technology, and Star Wars particle-beam devices. He also
discusses the role that extraterrestrial technology played in shaping geopolitical
policy and events; how it helped the United States surpass the Russians
in space; spurred elaborate Army initiatives such as SDI (Star Wars Projects),
Project Horizon (to place a military base on the Moon), and
and that it has functioned ever since. In the 1950s two crude
prototypes of antigravity craft were constructed, but were powered by crude
human nuclear fission generators, and were inefficient and leaked radiation.
He says that the Star Wars program was always primarily to prepare for war
against the extraterrestrials in case of invasion. Corso was one of the
ultraconservative Cold Warriors who continually feared a Communist takeover.
The military and political groups he allied with adopted the same outlook
on the extraterrestrial Visitors, fearing them as some invasion force that
had to be repulsed by a crash program of back-engineering Star Wars weapons
from captured UFO technology. To his credit, Colonel Corso did not personally
fall into that reactionary conservatism that would lump extraterrestrials
with Communists as insidious potential invaders. Corso knew better, being
himself since childhood an experiencer of extraterrestrial visitation, (as
revealed by Jesse of NSA.) Thus Colonel Corso had unusually good insights
into the unfolding events in the decades after
