THE LEGACY OF COLONEL PHILIP J. CORSO: PART 2, with Philip Corso, Jr. and Dr. William Birnes. One of the most important milestones since the disclosure process began in earnest after the dissolution of the Soviet empire in 1991 was the publishing in 1997 of The Day After Roswell by Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso with William Birnes (also a speaker). The allegations in this book rocked the foundations of the cover-up. To this day the neither the Army nor the Department of Defense nor any agency of government has formally responded to these allegations. The Washington Post would not even dare write an obituary for this noted Washington insider rather than mention the book. If you plan to attend this conference, it is recommended you read The Day After Roswell in advance. The life story of Col. Corso, who died on July 16, 1998 at 83, is extraordinary. Col. Corso was a decorated officer and a patriot who believed the public should know the truth about the extraterrestrial reality. His son shares this belief and is determined to defend his father’s legacy. Paradigm Research Group is pleased to announce Philip Corso, Jr. will come to Washington to talk about his father and the family’s experience in the aftermath of one of the most controversial books ever published.

Philip Corso Jr. Interview talking about his father Colonel Corso (Philip J. Corso Sr.) and the story of publishing the controversial book “The Day after Roswell” and the super secret military cover-ups that have been taking place since about 1945. All of the contacts and events described in the book have been substantiated by hundreds of military generals and corporate insiders, that have together disclosed their weighty experiences with the help of Stephen Greer in the ‘disclosure project’(.org). — Peter Jordon, UFO Magazine The Legacy of Colonel Philip J.

Visit http://www.X-Conference.com COLONEL PHILIP J. CORSO AND THE POLITICS OF DISCLOSURE, with Dr. William Birnes. Phil Corso once told Bill Birnes during the course of working on the manuscript for The Day after Roswell, that the Army never had to worry about disinformation or a conspiracy to hide the truth because the public was more than willing to hide the truth for them. In other words, the UFO community itself, such as it was in the 1950s and ’60s was so focused on some of the wilder stories about trips to Venus and creatures from nearby planets that the rock solid evidence of UFOs, right before the eyes of the American public, largely went unnoticed. Real sightings, witness reports from the military and from credible public safety officers were dismissed as wild ravings by the tabloid press and never even covered by mainstream media. Corso said that the government never actually had to worry about disclosure because the truth of the matter was so self-evident it was in plain sight and nobody was looking at it. This is the springboard for the presentation about Corso and how in his final lectures before academic audiences, he was able to present his story, stripped of all the hype and derogatory criticism, in a way that people could understand it. Corso’s story encompassed far more than UFOs, although the Roswell file and his technology transfer program certainly became prominent in the latter part of his life. Of course, he was able to keep what he knew about the Roswell crash and the debris retrieved a secret.

Philip J. Corso (May 22, 1915 – July 16, 1998) was an American U.S. Army officer.
He served in the United States Army from February 23, 1942 to March 1, 1963, and earned the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
Late in his life in the book The Day After Roswell, Corso described his involvement in the research of extraterrestrial technology recovered from the 1947 Roswell UFO crash.
Military career
After joining the Army in 1942, Corso served in Army Intelligence in Europe.
In 1945, Corso arranged for the safe passage of 10,000 Jewish World War II refugees out of Rome to Palestine.
During the Korean War (1950-1953), Corso performed Intelligence duties under General Douglas MacArthur as Chief of the Special Projects branch of the Intelligence Division, Far East Command. One of his primary duties was to keep track of enemy prisoner of war (POW) camps in North Korea. Corso was in charge of investigating the estimated number of U.S. and other United Nations POWs held at each camp and their treatment. At later hearings of the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs, Corso provided testimony that many hundreds of American POW’s were abandoned at these camps.
Corso was on the staff of President Eisenhower’s National Security Council for four years (1953-1957).
In 1961, he became Chief of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology desk in Army Research and Development, working under Lt. Gen. Arthur Trudeau.
When he left military intelligence in 1963, Corso became a key aide to Senator Strom Thurmond.
In 1964, Corso was assigned to Warren Commission member Senator Richard Russell Jr. as an investigator into the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Corso married Nancy Janice Moore in 1968. They have a son, Philip Corso Junior.
Corso relates in his book The Day After Roswell (co-author William J. Birnes) how he stewarded extraterrestrial artifacts recovered from a crash at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
According to Corso, the reverse engineering of these artifacts indirectly led to the development of accelerated particle beam devices, fiber optics, lasers, integrated circuit chips and Kevlar material.
In 1947, according to Corso, a covert government group (see Majestic 12) was assembled under the leadership of the first Director of Central Intelligence, Adm. Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter. Among its tasks was to collect all information on extraterrestrial spacecraft. The US administration simultaneously discounted the existence of flying saucers in the eyes of the public, Corso says.
Corso further relates that the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), or Star Wars, was meant to achieve the capability of killing the electronic guidance systems of incoming enemy warheads and disabling enemy spacecraft, including those of extraterrestrial origin.
Many of the claims made in this book have been challenged by other UFO researchers; for a detailed investigation of his claims, see Kal K. Korff’s book The Roswell UFO Crash: What They Don’t Want You to Know.
