Jacobsen's controversial new book, Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base reveals that back in the late 1940s, Joseph Stalin wanted to create hysteria in the USA. Stalin recruited famed Nazi doctor, Josef Mengele, to create "grotesque, child-size aviators" to pilot a Russian aircraft disguised as a UFO into America. Annie's information comes via an anonymous source that had inside knowledge of the Roswell incident.
However, this is just the latest in a long line of theories and there is certainly no definite way for Jacobsen to prove her theory beyond a reasonable doubt to critics. One of those critics is Mutual UFO Network's (MUFON) Clifford Clift who states, "After researching the claim, I found little truth in this theory. It is a stretch. One of my concerns is if they wanted to create panic, why in New Mexico and not New York where there are more people to panic? I would suggest it is another conspiracy theory and, heavens, MUFON knows about conspiracy theories. They do sell books."
In the end, selling books is one of the reasons Annie Jacobsen came out with this information. Speaking about her other reason, she said, "...I absolutely believe the veracity of my source, and I believe it was important that I put his information out there because it is the tip of a very big iceberg."
Another critic who disagrees with some of Annie's information is Roswell UFO conspiracy theorist and author Bill Lynne. He states, "They're just saying what I've been saying all along, that it was a hoax. But that Mengele stuff is a bunch of hogwash because Mengele was recruited by the CIA (rather than the Russians), and he was actually brought to Albuquerque."
So, it seems that everyone is back to square one. There will never be a way for the public to know which Roswell UFO theory (if any) is true. However, they certainly are all interesting. This latest one delves deeper into genetics and horror with the inclusion of Russian "child-size aviators." Let's hope this latest one doesn't have any truth backing it.
