This date—or "about three weeks" before July 8—appeared in later stories featuring Brazel, but the initial press release from the Roswell Army Air Field RAAF said the find was "sometime last week", suggesting Brazel found the debris in early July. As described in the July 9, edition of the Roswell Daily RecordThe balloon which held it up, if that was how it worked, must have been 12 feet [3.
My last debate was not reviewed by many, but my burden was higher in that one. Here, my opponent offers the position that the Roswell incident was a crash site from an alien craft and the military covered up the crash so as to prevent mass panic.
I wish aliens did land as I have a few questions, but I must disagree with Pro as he will not be able to provide any evidence of life forms from that crash, nor will he be able to provide supporting evidence for technological items that we could not produce at that time.
I have looked, and hoped, but it is not there. I think alien life is very plausible, but so far, I have found no reliable evidence to support the contention that they have landed at Roswell, or anywhere else for that matter. Pro gave a brief description of the "Roswell Incident" but we need to understand the hype surrounding this event and the facts that we can gather from the start.
The wiki does not do it justice. First things first, on June 27,a pilot, Kenneth Arnold, reported seeing some strange objects in the night sky and many newspapers reported the incident. The reports came in as "flying saucers" or "flying disks".
July 8,The Roswell Army Air Force base reportedly gave a press release concerning a "flying saucer". The news reports of the release are well documented but no original copies of the release itself exist.
The release was given shortly after Mr. Wilmont reported seeing an object fall from the sky. No one in the community came forward with the story until this release was presented in the local Roswell paper.
The Roswell paper reported the next day that a rancher had found wreckage in a field on June 14 but did not report it at that time.

He contacted the Sherriff after reading about flying disks, the sheriff then contacted the USAAF so they could examine the wreckage. No disks were found. No aliens were found. The newspapers got it wrong. Here is what we have: Reports of flying disks 2.
Reports of seeing something crash 3. A crash site 4. A modern myth is born My opponent is taking a heavy burden as he must show that an alien craft crash landed and that the military covered up the event.
He will not be able to do so. My opponent starts by attacking the most plausible explanation for the Roswell crash in referencing project Mogul.
He bases his claim of crash site materials on a collage of eyewitness accounts and nothing more. My opponent quoted from this article: The rancher did not claim these points, the engineer writing the article wrote this quote and he gathered the information by selecting second hand accounts that agree with his alien debris idea.
The engineer writing the article never saw the debris, ever. He never even saw the crash site. He references a previous article which he wrotebut no copy is available online and my library does not carry UFO magazines, sadly.
The problem with the debris is that no one can produce the evidence, and many of the accounts are second hand, and the claims contradict the first account the rancher gave to the Roswell paper.
