Truth or fiction?
Not even presidents of the United States are immune to suspicious circumstances or curious conundrums.
Did President Truman cover up a UFO?
From Congressional records, we know John Quincy Adams believed the earth was hollow. If only there were Congressional records to shed light on whether Harry S. Truman, the 33rd US President, believed that outer-space aliens landed in Roswell, New Mexico… or whether he ordered a cover-up of all evidence of such a landing. What we do know is that in July 1947, the military actually announced that a UFO had crash-landed in the Roswell desert, and the next day they said, sorry, nope, that didn’t actually happen. Somewhere in between, President Harry S. Truman is believed to have turned up in Roswell to examine the crash site. The question remains: Did he orchestrate what may be American history’s most massive UFO cover-up?
Roswell isn’t the only place conspiracy theorists believe aliens have landed – another is Area 51 in Nevada, which is just one of 10 forbidden places nobody will ever be able to visit.
What was on the missing portion of the Watergate tape?
Between February 1971 and July 1973, US President Richard M. Nixon secretly recorded 3,700 hours of conversations he wasn’t supposed to be recording, including those that became the basis of the Watergate scandal. When the existence of the tapes became public knowledge during that scandal, it was quickly discovered that 18-and-a-half minutes of a conversation between Nixon and his chief of staff, Bob Haldeman, was nothing more than audio feedback. Multiple attempts over the years to recover what’s come to be known as the “missing” audio have proved fruitless, and to this day no one knows for sure what Nixon and Haldeman were discussing. Based on the audio that’s NOT missing, there’s every chance the missing audio would have been extremely prejudicial.
