Unsealed: Alien Files (2012–…): Season 2, Episode 4 - The Laredo Incident - full transcript

{\an8}WHAT DOES THE AMERICAN
GOVERNMENT REALLY KNOW ABOUT

UFOs? AND HOW FAR WILL THEY GO
TO HIDE THE TRUTH?

IN 1948, A FIREBALL CRASHES TO
EARTH NEAR LAREDO, TEXAS, JUST

SOUTH OF THE MEXICAN BORDER. THE
AMERICAN MILITARY LAUNCHES A TOP

SECRET MISSION INTO MEXICO TO
RECOVER IT.

THEY SAY IT WAS AN EXPERIMENTAL
AIRCRAFT, BUT MANY EXPERTS

BELIEVE IT WAS A UFO. WHAT FELL
TO EARTH IN THE DESERT, AND WHAT

IS BEING KEPT FROM THE PUBLIC?
JOIN US AS WE REVEAL THE

SHOCKING SECRETS OF THE LAREDO
CRASH ON "UNSEALED: ALIEN

FILES."

A GLOBAL EFFORT HAS BEGUN.
SECRET FILES HIDDEN FROM THE



PUBLIC FOR DECADES DETAILING
EVERY UFO ACCOUNT ARE NOW

AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC. WE ARE
ABOUT TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH

BEHIND THESE CLASSIFIED
DOCUMENTS. FIND OUT WHAT THE

GOVERNMENT DOESN'T WANT YOU TO
KNOW. "UNSEALED: ALIEN FILES."

EXPOSING THE BIGGEST SECRETS ON
PLANET EARTH.

THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER STRETCHES
FOR NEARLY 2,000 MILES, MUCH OF

IT ACROSS AN EMPTY DESERT
LANDSCAPE. IT IS THE BUSIEST

FRONTIER IN THE WORLD, CROSSED
OVER 300 MILLION TIMES ANNUALLY.

IT'S ALSO NOTORIOUS FOR UFO
SIGHTINGS, AND ON THE AMERICAN

SIDE, ONE TOWN IN PARTICULAR:
LAREDO, TEXAS. IN 2013, THE

LAREDO PARANORMAL RESEARCH
SOCIETY REVEALED A RECENT SPIKE

IN UFO SIGHTINGS. OIL WORKERS
SPOT A SERIES OF STRANGE ORANGE

DISKS IN THE SKY. A LOCAL
RANCHER REPORTS THE SAME THING.

RESIDENTS HAVE CAPTURED PHOTOS
WITH MOTION SENSOR CAMERAS SET



OFF BY LIGHTS HOVERING OVER
THEIR FARMS. BRIGHTLY LIT

OBJECTS DESCRIBED AS FLEETS OF
UFOs HAVE BEEN WITNESSED IN

BROAD DAYLIGHT. BUT WHAT IS
BEHIND THESE SIGHTINGS? WHAT

BRINGS UFOs TO THE BORDER
REGION? THE ANSWER MAY LIE IN A

DECADES' OLD INCIDENT THAT
ALLEGEDLY SPARKED ONE OF THE

BIGGEST GOVERNMENT COVER-UPS IN
U.S. HISTORY.

UNSEALED CASE FILE: THE LAREDO
CRASH. LAREDO, TEXAS. JULY 7,

1948. A BALL OF FIRE BURSTS
THROUGH THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE

AT OVER 2,000 MILES PER HOUR. IT
STREAKS ACROSS THE TEXAS SKY AS

TWO AMERICAN MILITARY JETS
STRUGGLE TO PURSUE WHAT APPEARS

TO BE A METEOR. AMERICAN RADAR
DETECTS AN UNIDENTIFIED FLYING

OBJECT MOVING AT A HIGH SPEED
TOWARD THE SMALL TOWN. BUT THE

UFO BYPASSES LAREDO, CRASHING TO
EARTH JUST SOUTH OF THE BORDER.

[EXPLOSION]
ONE OF AMERICA'S TOP MILITARY

STRATEGISTS IS CALLED IN TO
INVESTIGATE. U.S. SECRETARY OF

STATE GEORGE MARSHALL
IMMEDIATELY CONTACTS THE MEXICAN

GOVERNMENT ON HIS OWN AUTHORITY,
AND OBTAINS PERMISSION FOR A

SMALL FORCE TO CROSS THE BORDER
AND RECOVER WHAT HE REFERS TO AS

"A SPECIAL TEST VEHICLE" THAT
CRASH LANDED. IT IS

UNPRECEDENTED FOR A GOVERNMENT
TO ALLOW ANOTHER COUNTRY'S

MILITARY FORCE TO CROSS THEIR
BORDER ON A RETRIEVAL MISSION.

STILL, THE MEXICAN AUTHORITIES
AGREE. ARRIVING AT THE CRASH

SITE, THE RECOVERY TEAM
ALLEGEDLY DISCOVERS AN AIRCRAFT

UNLIKE ANYTHING SEEN BEFORE.
A SILVER DISC OVER 90 FEET IN

DIAMETER MADE OF WHAT APPEARS TO
BE AN UNBENDABLE METAL FOIL.

WHAT IS IT? AND WHERE DID IT
COME FROM? JUST 600 MILES NORTH

IS THE WHITE SANDS PROVING
GROUND, A TOP SECRET AVIATION

RESEARCH FACILITY. 3 MONTHS
BEFORE THE LAREDO CRASH, A GROUP

OF SCIENTISTS CLAIM TO HAVE
WITNESSED A HUGE DISC-SHAPED UFO

MAKING AGGRESSIVE TURNS AND
MOVES ABOVE THE BASE.

THE CRAFT DISAPPEARED AND NO
REAL EXPLANATION WAS GIVEN FOR

THE SIGHTING. COULD THE CRASHED
LAREDO OBJECT BE AN EXPERIMENTAL

AIRCRAFT FROM THE WHITE SANDS
PROVING GROUND? OR IS IT OF

ALIEN ORIGIN? GEORGE MARSHALL IS
NO STRANGER TO UFO INCIDENTS. HE

PERSONALLY OVERSAW THE HANDLING
OF THE BIGGEST UFO EVENT IN

AMERICAN HISTORY.
>> THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES. IT

WAS FEBRUARY 1942 AT NIGHT.
SUDDENLY, AIR RAID SIRENS RANG

OUT OVER THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
COAST. SEARCH LIGHTS WENT ON.

THEY SAW A STRANGE OBJECT
CAPTURED IN THE SEARCH LIGHTS,

WITH FLAK EXPLODING ALL AROUND
IT. WHAT WAS IT? WHAT WAS THIS

OBJECT THAT THEY WERE FIRING ON?
WAS IT A JAPANESE BOMBER? IF IT

WAS A JAPANESE BOMBER, OUR
ANTI-AIRCRAFT BATTERIES COULDN'T

HIT IT.
>> THE UFO IS REPORTEDLY SEEN BY

THOUSANDS OF WITNESSES. GEORGE
MARSHALL ISSUES A DENIAL OF ANY

UFO ACTIVITY, BUT PRIVATELY,
MARSHALL SENDS A MEMO TO

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT THAT
CONTAINS A SHOCKING REVELATION.

"REGARDING THE AIR RAID OVER LOS
ANGELES, THIS HEADQUARTERS HAS

COME TO THE DETERMINATION THAT
THE CRAFT BOMBARDED BY THE

MILITARY ARE, IN FACT, NOT
EARTHLY, AND ACCORDING TO SECRET

INTELLIGENCE SOURCES, THEY ARE,
IN ALL PROBABILITY, OF

INTERPLANETARY ORIGIN."
>> THE GOVERNMENT EXPLANATION

THAT IT WAS SIMPLY A BALLOON, A
WEATHER BALLOON THAT BLEW OFF

COURSE SIMPLY MAKES NO SENSE.
AFTER 60 YEARS WE STILL HAVE NO

EXPLANATION.
>> MARSHALL KNOWS THE

CROSS-BORDER CRASH WILL BE FAR
MORE DIFFICULT TO COVER UP THAN

THE WARTIME INCIDENT.

1948. A STRANGE CRAFT FALLS TO
EARTH JUST SOUTH OF THE MEXICAN

BORDER FROM LAREDO, TEXAS.
SECRETARY OF STATE GEORGE

MARSHALL RECEIVES PERMISSION
FROM MEXICAN AUTHORITIES TO

RETRIEVE IT. THE RECOVERY TEAM
BEGINS TO DISASSEMBLE THE

OBJECT. ITS METAL SEEMS ALMOST
UNBREAKABLE, EVEN TO THE HEAT OF

ACETYLENE TORCHES.
THE MEN ARE FORCED TO USE

CARBIDE AND DIAMOND DRILLS AND
SAWS TO BREACH THE HULL. WHAT

THEY FIND INSIDE IS SHOCKING.
THE BADLY BURNED BODY OF THE

UFO's PILOT.
WITNESSES DESCRIBE THE BODY AS

"ALIEN IN APPEARANCE." IT'S 4
1/2 FEET TALL WITH HANDS SHOWING

ONLY 4 CLAWLIKE FINGERS. THE
SHAPE AND SIZE OF THE HEAD ARE

HUMANOID, BUT DEFINITELY NOT
HUMAN.

MARSHALL ACTS QUICKLY TO PREVENT
NEWS OF THE DISCOVERY FROM

SPREADING.
>> FOR THE SELECT FEW THAT WERE

ACTUALLY CONNECTED TO THE
WRECKAGE, FOR THOSE WHO SAW IT,

THEY WERE QUICKLY SILENCED. THEY
WERE TOLD TO TELL A COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT STORY, AND THEN THE
REST WAS COMPLETELY COVERED UP.

>> THIS IS ACTUALLY THE THIRD
TIME MARSHALL HAS REPORTEDLY

ACTED TO CONCEAL THE PRESENCE OF
EXTRATERRESTRIALS. ONE YEAR

EARLIER, HE COORDINATED THE
RETRIEVAL OF ONE OF THE MOST

CONTROVERSIAL SPACECRAFT EVER TO
FALL TO EARTH. UNSEALED CASE

FILE: THE ROSWELL INCIDENT.
ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO. JULY 7,

1947. A STRANGE CRAFT CRASHES
NEAR THE SMALL TOWN IN THE

AMERICAN SOUTHWEST. MILITARY
FROM THE ROSWELL BASE RUSH TO

THE SCENE, BUT CIVILIAN
WITNESSES HAVE ALREADY ARRIVED.

THE WRECKAGE IS RECOVERED, AND
WHAT APPEAR TO BE ALIEN BODIES

ARE REMOVED FROM THE CRASH SITE.
GEORGE MARSHALL TAKES COMMAND OF

THE SITUATION. EVEN THOUGH THE
STORY HAS LEAKED THAT A UFO HAS

CRASHED, A COVER STORY IS PUT
FORTH. ONCE AGAIN, HIS OFFICIAL

STATEMENT IS THAT IT'S NOTHING
MORE THAN A WEATHER BALLOON. BUT

THAT ISN'T THE ONLY SIMILARITY.
THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE BURNED

BEING RECOVERED FROM THE LAREDO
CRASH IS GENERALLY THAT OF A

MONKEY. AFTER WORLD WAR II, THE
BURGEONING AMERICAN SPACE

PROGRAM WAS KNOWN TO USE RHESUS
MONKEYS AS LABORATORY ANIMALS IN

EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT, OFTEN
WITH FATAL RESULTS.

JUST 6 DAYS BEFORE THE LAREDO
UFO CRASH, THE WHITE SANDS

PROVING GROUND LAUNCHED A MONKEY
IN A V-2 ROCKET, THE FIRST

PRIMATE IN SPACE.
BUT THIS MONKEY WAS NOT THE ONE

FOUND AT LAREDO. IT HAD COME
DOWN TO EARTH THE SAME DAY AFTER

6 MINUTES AND 39 MILES. IT HAD
SUFFOCATED DURING THE FLIGHT.

NASA VIGOROUSLY DENIES ANY
CONNECTION BETWEEN UFO REPORTS

AND LAB MONKEY EXPERIMENTS IN
SPACE, BUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

ALLEGES THAT HE HAD BEEN PRESENT
DURING THE FIELD AUTOPSY OF THE

CHARRED BEING IN 1948, AND THAT
AUTOPSY CONFIRMS THE BODY IS NOT

OF THIS WORLD.
A YEAR EARLIER, IN 1947, AT

LEAST 4 EXTRATERRESTRIAL
BIOLOGICAL ENTITIES WERE

RETRIEVED FROM THE ROSWELL CRASH
SITE, FITTING THE SAME

PHYSIOLOGICAL PROFILE AS THE
LAREDO ALIEN. THEY WILL BECOME

KNOWN AS "THE GRAYS," AN ALIEN
RACE THAT WILL BE LINKED TO MORE

REPORTS OF TERRIFYING ABDUCTIONS
THAN ANY OTHER. THE SITUATION IS

ESCALATING. TWO INCIDENTS
INVOLVING THE SAME SPECIES HAVE

OCCURRED IN LESS THAN A YEAR. IS
AMERICA FACING AN INVASION BY

THE GRAYS? AND IF SO, WHAT DOES
THE GOVERNMENT INTEND TO DO

ABOUT IT?
MARSHALL REPORTEDLY SETS UP A

TASK FORCE TO INVESTIGATE THE
RASH OF ALIEN ACTIVITY. THIS

GROUP WILL COME TO BE KNOWN AS
"MAJESTIC 12," ONE OF THE MOST

TOP SECRET GROUPS IN GOVERNMENT
HISTORY. THE MAJESTIC 12 ARE SET

TO CONTROL ALL TOP SECRET UFO
CRASHES AND THEIR RECOVERY. AT

THE TIME, THEIR MOVEMENTS AND
RESEARCH ARE ULTRA TOP SECRET,

EVEN BEYOND THE CONTROL OF THE
PRESIDENT. BY THE MID-1950s,

EXPERTS CLAIM THEY HAVE BEEN
REAR-ENGINEERING ALIEN

TECHNOLOGY RETRIEVED FROM SUCH
FAMOUS UFO CRASHES AS ROSWELL

AND LAREDO, BUT MANY UFOLOGISTS
BELIEVE MAJESTIC 12'S MOST

CHILLING SECRET IS THAT THEY
HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATING WITH

ALIENS.
10 YEARS LATER, MARSHALL HAS

STEPPED DOWN AS SECRETARY OF
DEFENSE. DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER IS

NOW PRESIDENT AND MAJESTIC 12
HAS MADE CONTACT WITH THE ALIEN

GRAYS. A MEETING IS REPORTEDLY
ARRANGED BETWEEN THE GRAYS AND

PRESIDENT EISENHOWER TO DISCUSS
PEACE BETWEEN WORLDS.

>> NOW, THERE WAS A MEETING
SUPPOSEDLY THAT TOOK PLACE IN

1957 AT HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE,
AND THIS WAS WITH THE GRAYS. AT

THAT MEETING, SUPPOSEDLY, THERE
WAS SOME SORT OF TREATY THAT WAS

SIGNED WHEREBY THEY COULD TAKE
SOME HUMANS FOR ABDUCTION AND

EXPERIMENTATION BUT THEY HAD TO
BE RETURNED SAFELY. IN EXCHANGE,

THE GRAYS WOULD GIVE US SOME
TECHNOLOGY.

>> WHAT DID EISENHOWER ALLEGEDLY
ASK OF THE ALIEN GRAYS HE MET?

AND WHAT DID THEY ASK FOR IN
RETURN?

1948. A UFO CRASHES NEAR LAREDO,
TEXAS EXACTLY ONE YEAR AFTER A

SIMILAR INCIDENT AT ROSWELL, NEW
MEXICO. ACCORDING TO WITNESSES,

BOTH INCIDENTS INVOLVED THE SAME
AGGRESSIVE ALIEN SPECIES, THE

GRAYS. THE EVENTS REPORTEDLY
BRING PRESIDENT DWIGHT D.

EISENHOWER FACE TO FACE WITH THE
GRAYS' REPRESENTATIVES FOR A

SUMMIT AT HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE
BASE.

>> REPORTED WITNESSES TO THIS
EVENT CLAIMED THAT EISENHOWER

WAS ACTUALLY ASKED THERE BY THE
EXTRATERRESTRIALS IN ORDER TO

MAKE SOME SORT OF DEAL. THE
MEETING TOOK PLACE AT THE

HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE IN NEW
MEXICO WHERE THE TREATY WOULD BE

REACHED. ONE OF THE CLASSIC
IMAGES IS THAT OF THE GRAYS WITH

LARGE HEADS AND ELONGATED,
ALMOND-SHAPED EYES AND SLITS FOR

A MOUTH AND VERY THIN. THE STORY
SOUNDS BIZARRE AT BEST, BUT

THERE ARE 3 WITNESSES TO THIS
EVENT.

>> THE RESULTING AGREEMENT MAY
DETERMINE THE FATE OF THE HUMAN

RACE. IT IS KNOWN AS THE GREADA
TREATY.

UNSEALED CASE FILE: THE GREADA
TREATY. EXPERTS BELIEVE THIS

TREATY GIVES THE UNITED STATES
ACCESS TO THE GRAYS ADVANCED

TECHNOLOGY IN RETURN FOR THE
RIGHT TO ABDUCT AND EXPERIMENT

ON HUMANS, WITH THE CONDITION
THEY ARE RETURNED UNHARMED. IT

SEEMS ALMOST INCONCEIVABLE THAT
AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT WOULD

OFFER UP HIS OWN PEOPLE TO AN
ALIEN RACE, BUT POSSIBLE PROOF

OF THE GRAYS' EXISTENCE WILL
SURFACE AGAIN IN 1978.

IT COMES IN THE FORM OF A
MYSTERIOUS PHOTOGRAPH THAT

ARRIVES AT THE OFFICE OF A UFO
INVESTIGATOR WORKING FOR THE

MUTUAL ANOMALY RESEARCH CENTER
AND EVALUATION NETWORK. IN A

LETTER, THE PHOTOGRAPHER CLAIMS
THE PHOTO IS OF THE BODY OF AN

EXTRATERRESTRIAL RECOVERED AT
THE LAREDO CRASH SITE. THE

PHOTOGRAPHER PROVIDES DETAILS OF
THE 1948 CRASH. HE EXPLAINS THE

RECOVERY OF THE CRAFT, THE
INVOLVEMENT OF SECRETARY OF

STATE MARSHALL, AND HOW HE WAS
FORCED TO DEVELOP THE PHOTOS THE

SAME NIGHT UNDER ARMED GUARD AT
THE WHITE SANDS PROVING GROUND.

HE ALSO CLAIMS TO HAVE SOMEHOW
SMUGGLED OUT OVER 40 MORE

NEGATIVES DOCUMENTING THE
AUTOPSY AND RETRIEVAL OF THE

CRAFT AT LAREDO.
MARCEN SENDS THE NEGATIVES FOR

ANALYSIS BY PROFESSIONAL FILM
EXPERTS. THE IMAGE OF A HUMANOID

FIGURE WITH A LARGE HEAD AND
SMALL BODY IS DEEMED REAL. THIS

LEADS TO ITS NICKNAME, "THE
TOMATO MAN."

THE PHOTO SENT TO MARCEN COMES
WITH A WARNING: BEING IN

POSSESSION OF THE PHOTO MAY
BRING THE NETWORK UNWELCOME

ATTENTION FROM A TOP SECRET
GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION.

COULD THIS SHADOWY ORGANIZATION
BE THE ULTRA SECRET MAJESTIC 12?

AND IS ANYONE WHO THREATENS THE
ALLEGED GOVERNMENT COVER-UP IN

DANGER?
>> AND I ASSURE YOU THEY WEREN'T

SENDING OUT PRESS RELEASES. IT
WAS CLASSIFIED ABOVE TOP SECRET,

AS THEY SAY, UH, AND, UH, YOU
KNOW, IF YOU WERE AT THAT LEVEL

AND YOU DECIDED YOU WANTED TO GO
TO "THE NEW YORK TIMES," THERE

WAS A GOOD CHANCE YOUR CAR WOULD
NEVER MAKE IT OUT OF THE

DRIVEWAY, OR YOU EITHER. EITHER.
SO, UH, THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF.

>> MARCEN LAUNCHES ITS OWN
INVESTIGATION INTO THE IDENTITY

OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER, HOPING TO
CONVINCE HIM TO TURN OVER THE

OTHER 40 NEGATIVES OF THE CRASH
SITE AND AUTOPSY. THE

INVESTIGATION TURNS UP SEVERAL
FALSE NAMES, ADDRESSES, AND POST

OFFICE BOXES. EVERY POSSIBLE
LEAD BRINGS THE INVESTIGATION TO

A DEAD END. A MARCEN MEMBER
PUBLISHED THIS STATEMENT ABOUT

THE MYSTERY PHOTOGRAPHER, "WE
KNOW WE ARE DEALING WITH

PRESUMABLY, A CAREER MILITARY
MAN VERY FEARFUL OF SOME SORT OF

PROSECUTION FOR HIS
TRANSGRESSIONS IN THIS AFFAIR,

WHO IS DOING HIS BEST TO REMAIN
ANONYMOUS."

TO THIS DAY, THE IDENTITY OF THE
LAREDO PHOTOGRAPHER REMAINS

UNKNOWN. BUT WHAT HAS BECOME OF
EISENHOWER'S AGREEMENT WITH THE

GRAYS?

LAREDO, TEXAS. 1948. WHAT

APPEARS TO BE AN ALIEN CRAFT
CRASHES TO EARTH. PHOTOGRAPHS

SUGGEST THE DEAD PILOT WAS AN
ALIEN GRAY. IT'S THE SAME

AGGRESSIVE ALIEN SPECIES FOUND
IN THE ROSWELL CRASH OF 1947 AND

THE SAME SPECIES WITH WHOM, IN
1957, PRESIDENT EISENHOWER

ENTERED INTO THE GREADA TREATY,
A DEAL THAT GAVE THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
IN RETURN FOR ALLOWING

EXPERIMENTS ON HUMANS. BUT WHO'S
TO SAY THEY KEPT THEIR PART OF

THE BARGAIN?
>> THEY WANTED TO BE ABLE TO

EXPERIMENT ON HUMAN BEINGS IN
THE UNITED STATES IN EXCHANGE

FOR TECHNOLOGY. WELL, IT BECAME
SORT OF LIKE THIS THING THAT GOT

OUT OF CONTROL OR OUT OF HAND,
AND THEY STARTED ABDUCTING

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.
>> IN 2012, ALMOST A MILLION

AMERICANS DISAPPEARED WITHOUT A
TRACE, A STAGGERING 2,300 PER

DAY. IN MEXICO, THAT NUMBER
REACHED OVER 25,000. MOST WERE

NEVER SEEN AGAIN. WERE THE
EVENTS AT ROSWELL AND LAREDO

RECON MISSIONS BY THE ALIEN
GRAYS? EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT OUR

{\an8}SECRET MILITARY WAREHOUSES HOLD
UNKNOWN NUMBERS OF ALIEN BODIES

{\an8}FROM ROSWELL, LAREDO, AND
ELSEWHERE. COULD THESE MASS

{\an8}ABDUCTIONS BE A FORM OF ALIEN
VENGEANCE? 100 DISAPPEARED

{\an8}HUMANS IN EXCHANGE FOR EVERY ONE
OF THEM?

{\an8}AND IF SO, IS THE HUMAN RACE NOW
AT THE MERCY OF AN ALIEN MASTER?

{\an8}THIS IS "UNSEALED: ALIEN FILES."
