MJ12 Documents

One of the most controversial documents to be uncovered in the anals of UFO research is called the MJ Documents. These documents were left under Jaime Shandera home door (as I recall reading) by an unknown source in 1984. At this Mr. Shandera was a producer in the Los Angeles area and was working with Bill Moore, to undercover the secret about the UFOs. At this time, Bill Moore was working with scientist Stanton Friedman and so the three of these men upon receiving these documents did extensive research. These documents have been re- published in a Richard Hall's book, "Uninvited Quests" as well as "Crash at Corona" by Stanton Friedman and Don Berliner in 1992. Mr. Friedman believes based on other documents they found in the National Archieve that the documents are geninue and other researchers have found some inconsistancies with page number and type face of the 1950's.

My personal feeling is that the information shared is essentially correct and could have been copied and duplicated to try to show what the real documents looked like. In any case, quite a bit of information related to Roswell here seems to correspond with information found by various researchers and we share this here for your own evaluation. It seems that the events at Roswell in July of 1947 triggered off a sequence of events which began the coverup and how the U. S. government (and eventually other govenerments) decided to deal with UFOs.

Development/Intelligence operation responsible directly and only to 
the President of the United States. Operations of the project are 
carried out under control of the Majestic-12 (Majic-12) Group which 
was established by special classified executive order of President 
Truman on 24 September, 1947, upon recommendation by Dr. Vannevar Bush 
and Secretary James Forrestal. (See Attachment "A".) Members of the 
majestic-12 Group were designated as follows: 
                     Adm. Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter 
                     Dr. Vannevar Bush 
                     Secy. James V. Forrestal 
                     Gen. Nathan F. Twining 
                     Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg 
                     Dr. Detlev Bronk 
                     Dr. Jerome Hunsaker 
                     Mr. Sidney W. Souers 
                     Mr. Gordon Gray 
                     Dr. Donald Menzel 
                     Gen. Robert M. Montague 
                     Dr. Lloyd V. Berkner 
The death of Secretary Forrestal on 22 May, 1949, created a vacancy 
which remained unfilled until 01 August, 1950, upon which date Gen. 
Walter B. Smith was designated as permanent replacement.

On 24 June, 1947, a civilian pilot, flying over the Cascade Mountains 
in the State of Washington observed nine flying disc-shaped aircraft 
travelling in formation at a high rate of speed. Although this was not 
the first known sighting of such objects, it was the firs to gain 
widespread attention in the public media. Hundereds of reports of 
sightings of similar objects followed. Many of these came from highly 
credible military and civilian sources. These reports resulted in 
independent efforts by several different elements of the military to 
ascertain the nature and purpose of these objects in the interests of 
national defense. A number of witnesses were interviewed and there 
were several unsuccessful attemts to utilise aircraft in efforts to 
pursue reported discs in flight. Public reaction bordered on near 
hysteria at times. 
In spite of these efforts, little of substance was learned about the 
objects until a local rancher reported that one had crashed in a 
remote region of New Mexico located approximately seventy-five miles 
northwest of Roswell Army Air Base (now Walker Field). 
On 07 July, 1947, a secret operation was begun to assure recovery of 
the wreckage of this object for scientific study. During the course of 
this operation, aerial reconnaissance discovered that four small 
human-like beings had apparently ejected from the craft at some point 
before it exploded. These had fallen to earth about two miles east of 
the wreckage site. All four were dead and badly decomposed due to 
action by predators and exposure to the elements during the 
approximately one week time period which had elapsed before their 
discovery. A special scientific took charge of removing these bodies 
for study. (See Attachment "C".) The wreckage of the craft was also 
removed to several different locations. (See Attachment "B".) Civilian 
and military witnesses in the area were debriefed, and news reporters 
wee given the effective cover story that the object had been a 
misguided weather research balloon.

A covert analytical effort organized by Gen. Twining and Dr. Bush 
acting on the direct orders of the President, resulted in a 
preliminary concensus (19 September, 1947) that the disc was most 
likely a short range reconnaissance craft. This conclusion was based 
for the most part on the craft's size and the apparent lack of any 
identifiable provisioning. (See Attachment "D".) A similar analysis of 
the four dead occupants was arranged by Dr. Bronk. It was the 
tentative conclusion of this group (30 november, 1947) that although 
these creatures are human-like in appearance, the biological and 
evolutionary processes responsible for their development has 
apparently been quite different from those observed or postulated in 
homo-sapiens. Dr Bronk's tea has suggested the term "Extra-terrestrial 
Biological Entities", or "EBEs", be adopted as the standard term of 
reference for these creatures until such time as a more definitive 
designation can be agreed upon. 
Since it is virtually certain that these craft do not originate in any 
country on earth, considerable speculation has centred around what 
their point of origin may be and how they get here. Mars was and 
remains a possibility, although some scientists, most notably Dr. 
Menzel, consider it more likely that we are dealing with beings from 
another solar system entirely. 
Numerous examples of what appear to be a form of writing were found in 
the wreckage. Efforts to decipher these have remained largely 
unsuccessful. (See Attachment "E".) Equally unsuccessful have been 
efforts to determine the methods of propulsion or the nature or method 
of transmission of the power source involved. Research along these 
lines has been complicated by the complete absence of identifiable 
wings, propellors, jets, or other conventional methods of propulsion 
and guidance, as well as a total lack of metallic wiring, vacuum 
tubes, or similar recognizable electronic components. (See Attachment 
"F".) It is assumed that the propulsion unit was completely destroyed 
by the explosion which caused the crash.

A need for as much additional information as possible about these 
craft, their performance characteristics and their purpose led to the 
undertaking known as U.S. Air Force Project SIGN in December, 1947. In 
order to preserve security, liason between SIGN and Majestic-12 was 
limited to two individuals within the Intelligence Division of Air 
Material Command whose role was to pass along certain types of 
information through channels. SIGN evolved into Project GRUDGE in 
December, 1948. The operation is currently being conducted unde the 
code name BLUE BOOK, with liason maintained through the Air Force 
officer who is head of the project. 
On 06 december, 1950, a second object, probably os similar origin, 
impacted the earth at high speed in the El Indio - Guerrero area of 
Texas - Mexican border after following a long trajectory through the 
atmosphere. by the time a search team arrived, what remained of the 
object as been totally incinerated. Such material as could be 
recovered was transported to the A.E.C. facility at Sandia, New 
Mexico, for study. 
Implications for the National Security are of continuing importance in 
that the motives and ultimate intentions of these visitors remain 
completely unknown. In addition, a significant upsurge in the 
surveillance activity of these craft beginning in May and continuing 
through the autumn of this year has caused considerable concern that 
new developments may be iminent. It is for these reasons, as well as 
the obvious international and technological considerations and the 
ultimate need to avoid a public panic at all costs, that the Majestic-
12 Group remains of the unanimous opinion that imposition of the 
strictest security precautions should continue without interruption 
into the new administration. At the same time, contingency plan 
MJ-1949-04P/78 (Top Secret - Eyes Only) should be held in continued 
readiness should the need to make a public announcement present 
itself. (See Attachment "G".)

Dear Secretary Forrestal: 
      As per our recent conversation on this matter, you are hereby 
authorized to proceed with all due speed and caution upon your 
undertaking. Hereafter this matter shall be referred to only as 
Operation Majestic Twelve. 
      It continues to be my feeling that any future considerations 
relative to the ultimate disposition of this matter should rest solely 
with the Office of the President following appropriate discussions 
with yourself, Dr. Bush and the Director of Central Intelligence.
