I know a guy who's family that had to live in hiding for years after the Roswell incident, because of his dad's direct involvement. He sure didn't think it was silly.

I read where witnesses had indeed been threatened.

Frankie Rowe, was the daughter of Roswell fireman Dan Dwyer. Her father told the family of being on a run outside of Roswell to what they thought was a plane crash. "He said it was a crash of something that was not from the earth. ...the crash left a lot of pieces of small material around, and two small bodies and one person walking around. He said it was from another planet...they were very small, and the one that was walking around was about the size of a ten-year-old child, and it didn't have any hair...it had very small ears and rather large dark eyes. They had on a one-piece suit that covered the whole body." [71] Afterwards she claimed the military threatened to kill the whole family if they talked.

From people who have come forward since 1947 in revealing what went on and what they saw, and what they were told would happen if they mentioned anything to anybody.

So why didn't anything happen to them?Why didn't they kill Jesse Marcel when he started to talk in the 70s?

Because no one knew about the Roswell incident until a book came out in the 80's.

Marcel started talking in the 70s so why didn't they just rub him out,isn't it true that no harm has come to any of the Roswell "whistleblowers"?

Easy.

If too may people went missing in the early days it would draw unwanted attention to the case.  They hoped that threats would suffice.

As time went on, people did talk; this is usual in the field of Ufology.  As people retire, become no longer dependant or fearful, they talk.

Surely you could have worked that out?  Look into pilot reports, USAF personnel testimonies etc.  A lot of reports have surfaced only much later than the events.

No harm came to my friend's family because they were always on the move with a pistol constantly on dad's lap. Anyone else, I couldn't tell you.

RAF Bentwaters being a prime example.

The denial the Roswell Incident never ceases to amaze me.  Testimonies all over the internet.

By your own admission Mr B you are another one who refuses to look at the evidence.  

Very difficult to even have a debate under that level of denial.

Have looked. it fell short - way short. But please, do try to elaborate in your own words so we can discuss. What is the evidence exactly?

Isnt this thread about Close Encounters? Why let it slip down to the  Roswell  nonsense thats already been discussed a thousand times?
