Roger M. Ramey
Air Force general who released a statement that crashed object near Roswell was a weather balloon which has been criticized by many as a cover-up.
Roger Ramey, a USAF general was one of the people sent by the military to investigate the 1947 crash near Roswell. According to a report released to the public from Ramey, the wreckage discovered was a weather balloon. In the 1990s, evidence of a telex message was discovered in which Ramey refers to the crashed object as a "disc" to his superiors. This caused some controversy as some people declared it was proof of a cover-up while others asserted that the language was too vague for the meaning to be determined.
