CNI News Interviews Colonel Philip Corso
by Michael Lindemann
From the moment he arrived in Roswell, New Mexico last week, Colonel Philip Corso was in constant demand for press interviews. Despite his advanced age, Corso was energetic, lucid, and very generous with his time. CNI News editor Michael Lindemann was fortunate to be invited to privately interview the Colonel in his hotel room on Saturday morning, July 5. Also present were the Colonel's son Philip Jr. and William Birnes, co-author with Colonel Corso of the bombshell book .
In the book, Corso says that a genuine alien spacecraft -- with bodies -- was recovered near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. He says he viewed one of the dead alien bodies. More importantly, he says that during the early 1960s, he was stationed at the Pentagon under the command of General Arthur Trudeau and was assigned the super-secret task of parceling pieces of alien spacecraft wreckage out to various defense-related companies who could back-engineer the alien material into useful human technology. From this program, Corso says, sprang such strategically important developments as the integrated circuit for computers, fiber optics, advanced night vision technology, and lasers.
Lindemann arrived at Corso's room as a previous interview was concluding. The Colonel and Mr. Birnes were explaining how Corso had arranged for the safe passage of 10,000 Jewish refugees out of Rome to Palestine just after the end of World War II. Lindemann picked up on this theme to start the CNI News interview.
Michael Lindemann: Not only are you a highly decorated military officer, but it also seems you've always been willing to be a bit of a maverick when it comes to "doing the right thing" even if it might make some other people uncomfortable -- to the point where this latest disclosure about Roswell seems essentially in character for you. But this is a bigger disclosure, a bigger departure from the norm than your previous actions, don't you think?
Philip Corso: Well, some other things have been pretty important. Like when I moved those 10,000 Jews. I thought nothing of it, but people said what a big thing it was. Putting Rome back on its feet was important. I don't think this is bigger than some of those things. Even the looks on the families' faces in front of Congress [when he testified about American POWs left in North Korea], that was pretty important to those people.
And this one here, I think, fits in with all those others. Yes, it's important because like they say, it might have "changed the course of the World". Well, I have to give a lot of credit to General Trudeau who made it possible, and to the other people who were with
