On July 17,1947 Twining wrote to a senior executive and apologized for not attending the meeting, “due to a very important, sudden matter that developed here.” You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to guess what that may have been.
Then, as soon as the National Security Act came into force, Twining sent his memo to General Schulgen expressing his concern about UFOs. Twining knew more about UFOs than most people did back then – and more than most of us know now.
six weeks before the General died, he sent for his son and told him he did not want to die with a deception on his conscience.
He said that there had indeed been UFO wreckage, with three beings, one of whom was still alive and had therefore been taken to the laboratories at the Roswell top-security centre.
There, he had recovered and lived for fifteen years. General Twining described him as very intelligent, and said that as time passed they had somehow managed to communicate (I think telepathy was mentioned but I’m not sure) and he had come to consider this person as a friend.
On September 26, 1947 Twining submitted his report on flying saucers to President Truman.
The UFO incident got national attention when on July 1952, 9 UFO’s buzzed the White House and all of this was filmed. The Air Force blocked its own investigation.
