On the 68th anniversary of the reported crash of an alien flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico, nuclear physicist and UFO researcher Stanton Friedman tells Newsmax that he has no doubt that it really happened.
"There's no question that the real truth is that the United States Army Air Force recovered a crashed flying saucer, recovered alien bodies and has covered them up very successfully since that time," Friedman told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV
"It's one of the biggest stories of the millennium and it's not surprising. Many other important stories have been covered up for very long times [when there is] national security involved," he explained.

"We don't want anybody else to learn what we learned from examination of the wreckage and the bodies. That gives us a top dog slot," he said. "Who knows how many others have crashed."
Friedman said that even though none of the evidence has been released, he believes that the government still has the artifacts.
"They'd be utterly ridiculous to destroy the bodies or the wreckage because you get new analytical testing capabilities as time goes on," he explained.
Friedman is the author of "Flying Saucers and Science: A Scientist Investigates the Mysteries of UFO's."
