Bob Lazar is popularly known for his claims of working on top secret engineering related to extraterrestrial spacecraft at Area 51, which made the mysterious facility famous. Government and military officials have denied Lazar’s claims. In a recent interview, however, a documentary filmmaker shared statements from a physicist who worked at Los Alamos National Laboratories, saying he has met the UFO whistleblower at Los Alamos, and can provide proof he was employed as a physicist.
Lazar first started providing information to the public through the media about his alleged job on alien spacecraft engineering in the late 1980s. According to him, he worked at an underground lab known as S-4, located south of the main Area 51 facility.
He first came out in interviews with investigative journalist George Knapp on the Las Vegas CBS affiliate, KLAS News, under a pseudonym with his face in the dark. Lazar eventually allowed himself to be filmed with his real identity. Adding to the mystery was the reality that the U.S. government denied the very existence of Area 51 at that time.
Lazar claims he was axed from his job for sharing information about his top secret work, and his employment records as a scientist, as well as his education details, were erased. Researchers couldn’t find any records supporting the claims of Lazar about his degrees at Caltech and MIT. They also couldn’t find anyone who remembered going to school with Lazar.
This was one of the issues discussed on Sunday night on the famous Coast to Coast AM syndicated paranormal show, hosted by Knapp with documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell as a guest.
Knapp says that he can look past the education issue, and the most important to him is to know whether or not Lazar did work at Los Alamos National Lab. Knapp explains that if Lazar worked there in a technical or scientific position, and he had security clearances, then that could justify the idea that he would be hired at Area 51.
Knapp says that he confirmed in his investigations that Lazar did work at Los Alamos. He states that he found Lazar’s name in a Los Alamos phone book. Moreover, Knapp says that he further recovered a newspaper article with Lazar on the front page and saw a picture of him saying he is a physicist out there.
Meanwhile, many remains skeptical as the phone book doesn’t list Lazar’s capacity at Los Alamos, and newspapers are deemed to be easily fooled.
However, Corbell claims he was able to find a witness who is willing to go on the record. Corbell says he used a “bot” that could run automated tasks over the internet in researching Lazar’s claims. He used this software to search Facebook for keywords and found a comment on a group from someone who said his neighbor claimed to have worked with Lazar.
Corbell says he got in contact with the man, who eventually helped him to get in touch with the neighbor. Corbell confirmed this neighbor did work at Los Alamos and asked this man if he would be willing to go public and he said yes.
Corbell shared some audio clips of an interview with Dr. Robert Krangle, where the physicist says that he was employed on and off as a contractor for Los Alamos in the 80s and still does occasionally. Krangle explains he was part of a design project or ancillary engineering. He claims to have graduated from MIT in 1973 with a degree in semiconductor physics.
Corbell says he has discovered an article that listed credentials of Krangle, who also showed IDs as evidence he worked at other facilities, performing high-tech work, including Kirtland Air Force Base, China Lake, Los Alamos, Manzano weapons storage facility, and Sandia.
When Corbell asked Krangle if he knew Lazar as a physicist at Los Alamos, Krangle answers he was certain. He says they recognize each other as they both worked as a scientist. Krangle goes on to say that he attended security meetings with Lazar, where they were brief not to talk about what they are doing or seeing.
Krangle says Lazar committed professional suicide, and he understood the reason Lazar’s employers were so upset with him because he broke from the fold and talked about it.
Knapp asked Corbell the reason Krangle shared this information if he knew he could get into a big trouble. Corbell answers that Krangle no longer makes a living off of his Los Alamos contracts.
