Philip J. Corso (May 22, 1915 July 16, 1998) was an American Army officer.

He served in the United States Army from February 23, 1942, to March 1, 1963, and earned the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

Corso published The Day After Roswell, about how he was involved in the research of alleged extraterrestrial technology recovered from the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident. On July 23, 1997, he was a guest on the popular late night radio show, Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell where he spoke live about his Roswell story. This interview was rebroadcast by Coast to Coast AM on July 3, 2010.




Military career

After joining the Army in 1942, Corso served in Army Intelligence in Europe, becoming chief of the US Counter Intelligence Corps in Rome. In 1945, Corso arranged for the safe passage of 10,000 Jewish World War II refugees out of Rome to the British Mandate of Palestine.

During the Korean War (19501953), 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 (19531957).

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.




The Day After Roswell

In his book The Day After Roswell (co-author William J. Birnes) claims he stewarded extraterrestrial artifacts recovered from a crash at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

Corso says a covert government group was assembled under the leadership of the first Director of Central Intelligence, Adm. Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter (see Majestic 12). Among its tasks was to collect all information on off-planet technology. The US administration simultaneously discounted the existence of flying saucers in the eyes of the public, Corso says.

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 the book, Corso claims the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), or "Star Wars", was meant to achieve the destructive capacity of electronic guidance systems in incoming enemy warheads, as well as the disabling of enemy spacecraft, including those of extraterrestrial origin.

Well that may well help explane how technology made the major jumps it did. When you think about laptops now doing tons more then the old supercomputers that would fill a room, it makes you wonder how they got so good.
Roswell is such a massive subject and now it looks like the F*I deliberatly left there book open on this with their recent release of documents that were hinting toward a recovered crashed craft.

I'm sure a craft did crash and that the whole lot is real.
Right from the begining it was suspisious what with the press changing the story to balloon excuses.

I read his book when it first came out. Quite impressive if you're prepared to accept his facts on his say so. I researched his claims and they don't pan out or have too much support due to the USA's military secrets act etc. Which some will see as proof of his claims but it's no proof at all - just unverifiable claims and he knew that when he wrote the book.

Ive just bought the book on ebay - but I have another few books I want to get read before I get round to it, but I'm sure it will be interesting.

As we've learned already I put a lot more faith in a persons good credentials than you do.

DB I was wondering - with your interest in psychology have you ever looked into judging someone who makes these types of claims' body language and behaviour etc... to make educated guesses as to whether or not you believe they are telling the truth? eg: corso, lazar

I can't determine their body language from a book unfortunately. Body language is relatively easy to fake if you know how to read the signs.

It was on the T.V recently, look out for all the obvious signs like swaying, over livley legs ,looking up to the right when questioned.
A blank emotionless face is usually a face hidding something.

Hesitation, over use of errrrm. ermmmm think thats about it, oh and a quavery voice.
Look out for all those points when looking at whistle blower, videos.

Its a great story and makes perfect sense but without any other validation I'm afraid it's just a really good story.

Agentscott, this was one case were I noticed some sort of possibly - trying to impune the mans credentials - I looked him up on wikipedia a long time ago and it kept going on about his lowly military career and he hadnt really achieved anything in it etc... and basically he shouldnt have been a colonel etc...but eventually his real story wa put there that he had many roles of great importance etc...

it looked like a disinformation/attack the claimant to me

Thats a common trick used by the secret holders.
Thgey also tried that on Lazzar when Wikki alleges his qualifications are hard to confirm.

yes yet he was listed as a scientist at the los alamos national lab - if lazars story is true then the governments will go to any lengths to prevent this coming out

Lazar has seemed credible to me in anything Ive seen or read about him yet
