Were James Forrestal’s mental problems caused by the UFO project he was managing for the Truman administration in the late 1940s?
This has always been an open question in view of the man’s apparent suicide at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Washington D.C. on 22 May 1949, when he fell from a 16th floor window in the early hours of the morning.

Forrestal was the US Secretary of Defense from 17 September 1947 (several weeks after the Roswell UFO crashes) until his declining mental health caused President Harry Truman to ease him out of office in early 1949.
