My uncle Wayne was personal bodyguard to President Harry S Truman. He informed me Roswell was in fact an ET Craft. But what you didn't know is that Truman and my uncle went to the site personally. Th Secret Service utilized Operation Doppelganger to get Harry out of DC and with my uncle went to the crash site. Truman was adament and stubborn as a Missouri mule my uncle said to get there, after viewing the material brought into Andrews AFB with MJ-12 members. He was after all from Missouri. All the investigators and now you knowTruman was actually there. They met a Major Ed Easley the PMO at the site. Truman told him to erase all evidence of a crash because of the Russian agents who might be in the area. Did not want another Rosenberg leak.
