              EYES ONLY

              BRIEFING DOCUMENT: OPERATION MAJESTIC-12

              PREPARED FOR PRESIDENT-ELECT EISENHOWER.

              DOCUMENT PREPARED 18 NOVEMBER, 1952.

              BRIEFING OFFICER: ADM. ROSCOE H. HILLENKOETTER (MJ-1)

              NOTE: This document has been prepared as a preliminary
              briefing only. It should be regarded as introductory to a
              full operations briefing intended to follow.

              ......

              OPERATION MAJESTIC-12 is a TOP SECRET Research and
              Development/Intelligence operation responsible directly 
              only to the President of the United States. Operations of
              the project are carried out under control of the Majestic-12
              (MAJIC) 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.

              TOP SECRET -EYES ONLY-

              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 first to gain widespread attention
              in the public media. Hundreds 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 attempts 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
              were 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, propellers, 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, liaison 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 under the code name BLUE BOOK, with liaison
              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 been
              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 imminent.
              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".)

                  Schiff Receives, Releases Roswell Report
               (missing documents leave unanswered questions)

Washington: Congressman Steve Schiff today released the General Accounting
Office (GAO) report detailing results of a records audit related to events
surrounding a crash in 1947, near Roswell, New Mexico, and the military
response.

The 20 page report is the result of constituent information requests to
Congressman Schiff and the difficulty he had getting answers from the
Department of Defense in the now 48-year-old controversy.

Schiff said important documents, which may have shed more light on what
happened at Roswell, are missing. "The GAO report states that the outgoing
messages from Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) for this period of time were
destroyed without proper authority. Schiff pointed out that these messages
would have shown how military officials in Roswell were explaining to their
superiors exactly what happened.

"It is my understanding that these outgoing messages were permanent records,
which should never have been destroyed. The GAO could not identify who
destroyed the messages, or why." But Schiff pointed out that the GAO
estimates that the messages were destroyed over 40 years ago, making further
inquiry about their destruction impractical.

Documents revealed by the report include an FBI teletype and reference in a
newsletter style internal forum at RAAF that refer to a "radar tracking
device" - a reference to a weather balloon. Even though the weather balloon
story has since been discredited by the US Air Force, Schiff suggested that
the authors of those communications may have been repeating what they were
told, rather than consciously adding to what some believe is a "cover up."

"At least this effort caused the Air Force to acknowledge that the crashed
vehicle was no weather balloon," Schiff said. "That explanation never fit
the fact of high military security used at the time." The Air Force in
September, 1994 claimed that the crashed vehicle was a then-classified
device to detect evidence of possible Soviet nuclear testing.

Schiff also praised the efforts of the GAO, describing their work as
"professional, conscientious and thorough."

A two page letter discussing a related investigation into "Majestic 12" was
also delivered.

Schiff will be available to the media Saturday, July 29th, from 10:00 AM to
2:00 PM (Eastern) at 2404 Rayburn MOB in Washington, DC and by telephone:
(202) 225-6316.

A copy of the report may be obtained by calling (202) 512-6000 and
referencing Document number GAO/NSIAD-95-187.

The Honorable Steven H. Schiff
House of Representatives

Dear Mr. Schiff:

On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Army Air Held (RAAF) public information office
in Roswell, New Mexico, reported the crash and recovery of a "flying disc."
Army Air Forces personnel from the RAAF's 509th Bomb Group were credited
with the recovery. The following day, the press reported that the Commanding
General of the U.S. Eighth Air Force, Fort Worth, Texas, announced that RAAF
personnel had recovered a crashed radar-traciting (weather) balloon, not a
flying disc."

After nearly 50 years, speculation continues on what crashed at Roswell.
Some observers believe that the object was of extraterrestrial origin. In
the July 1994 "Report of Air Force Research Regarding the Roswell" Incident,
the Air Force did not dispute that something happened near Roswell, but
reported that the most likely source of the wreckage was from a
balloon-launched classified government project designed to determine the
state of Soviet nuclear weapons research. The debate on what crashed at
Roswell continues.

Concerned that the Department of Defense (DoD) may not have provided you
with all available information on the crash, you asked us to determine the
requirements for reporting air accidents similar to the crash near Roswell
and identify any government records concerning the Roswell crash.

We conducted an extensive search for government records related to the crash
near Roswell. We examined a wide range of classified and unclassified
documents dating from July 1947 through the 1950s. These records came from
numerous organizations in New Mexico and elsewhere throughout DoD as well as
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency
(CIA), and the National Security Council. The full scope and methodology of
our work are detalled at the end of This report.
               ----------------------------------------------

                              RESULTS IN BRIEF

iN 1947, regulations required that air accident reports be maintained air
accidents reported by the Army Air Forces in New Mexico during July 1947.
All of The accidents involved military aircraft and occurred after July
8,1947 -- the date the RAAF public information office first reported the
crash and recovery of a "flying disc" near Roswell. The Navy reported no air
accidents in New Mexico during July 1947. Air Force officials told us that
according to record-keeping requirements in effect during July 1947, there
was no requirement to prepare a report on the crash of a weather balloon.

In our search for records concerning the Roswell crash, we learned that some
government records covering RAAF activities had been destroyed and others
had not. For example, RAAF administrative records (from Mar. 1945 through
Dec. 1949) and RAAF outgoing messages (from Oct. 1946 through Dec. 1949)
were destroyed. The document disposition form does not indicate what
organization or person destroyed the records and when or under what
authority the records were destroyed.

Our search for government records concerning the Roswell crash yielded two
records originating in 1947 -- a July 1947 history report by the combined
509th Bomb Group and RAAF and an FBI teletype message dated July 8, 1947.
The 5O9th-RAAF report noted the recovery of a "flying disc" that was later
determined by military officials to be a radar-tracking balloon. The FBI
message stated that the military had reported that an object resembling a
high-altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector had been recovered near
Roswell.

The other government records we reviewed, including those previously
withheld from the public because of security classification, and the Air
Force's analysis of unidentifled flying object(1) sightings from 1946 to
1953 (Project Blue Book Special Report No. 14), did not mention the crash or
the recovery of an airborne object near Roswell in July 1947. Similarly,
executive branch agencies' responses to our letters of inquiry produced no
other government records on the Roswell crash.
                       -------------------------------
                                  Footnote
(1) According to Air Force regulations, an unidentified object is an
airborne object that by performance, aereodynamic characteristics, or
unusual features, does not conform to known aircraft or missiles, or does
not correspond to Air Force definitions of familiar or known objects or
unidentified aircraft.
               ----------------------------------------------

                           REPORTING AIR ACCIDENTS

According to press accounts from July 1947, Army Air Forces personnel from
RAAF were involved in the recovery of an airborne object near Roswell.
Therefore, if an air accident report was prepared, it should have been
prepared in accordance with Army regulations. According to an Army records
management official, in 1947 Army regulations required that air accident
reports be maintained permanentiy. An Air Force official said there was no
similar requirement to report a weather balloon crash.

According to an Air Force official who has worked in the records management
field since the inid-1940s, air accident reports prepared in July 1947 under
Army regulations should have been transferred to Air Force custody in
September 1947, when the Air Force was established as a separate service.

The Air Force Safety Agency is responsible for maintalning reports of air
accidents. We examined its microflim records to determine whether any air
accidents had been reported in New Mexico during July 1947. We identified
four air accidents during this time period.(2) All of the accidents involved
military fighter or cargo aircraft and occurred after July 8, 1947 -- the
date the RAAF public information office first reported the crash and
recovery of a "flying disc" near Roswell. According to the Army Air Forces'
Report of Major Accident, these four accidents occurred at or near the towns
of Hobbs, Albuquerque, Carrizozo, and Alamogordo, New Mexico. Ouly one of
the four accidents resulted in a fatality. The pilot died when the aircraft
crashed during an attempted take-off.

               ----------------------------------------------

                             SEARCH FOR RECORDS

In searching for government records on the Roswell crash, we were
particularly interested in identifying and reviewing records of military
units assigned to RAAF in 1947 -- to include the 509th Bomb Group, the 1st
Air Transport Unit, the 427th Army Air Force Base Unit, and the 1395th
Military Police Company (Aviation).

Document disposition forms obtained from the National Personnel Records
Center in St. Louis, Missouri, indicate that in 1953, the Walker Air Force
Base (formeriy RAAF) records officer transferred to the Army's Kansas City
records depository the histories of units stationed at Walker Air Force
Base. These histories included the 509th Bomb Group and RAAF for February
1947 through October 1947; the 1st Air Transport Unit for July 1946 through
June 1947; and the 427th Army Air Force Base Unit for January 1946 to
February 1947. We could not locate any documentation indicating that records
of the 1395th Military Police Company (Aviation) were ever retired to The
National Personnel Records Center or its predecessor depositories.

The July 1947 history for the 509th Bomb Group and RAAF stated that the RAAF
public information office "was kept quite busy ... answering inquiries on
the `flying disc,' which was reported to be in [the] possession of the 509th
Bomb Group. The object turned out to be a radar tracking balloon." By his
signature, The RAAF's commanding officer certified that the report
represented a complete and accurate account of RAAF activities in July 1947.
(Excerpts from the report are contained in app. I.)

In addition to unit history reports, we also searched for other government
records on the Roswell crash. In this regard, The Chief Archivist for the
National Personnel Records Center provided us with documentation indicating
that (1) RAAF records such as finance and accounting, supplies, buildings
and grounds, and other general administrative matters from March 1945
through December 1949 and (2) RAAF outgoing messages from October 1946
through December 1949 were destroyed. According to this official, the
document disposition form did not properly indicate the authority under
which the disposal action was taken. The Center's Chief Archivist stated
that from his personal experience, many of the Air Force organizational
records covering this time period were destroyed without entering a citation
for the governing disposition authority. Our review of records control forms
showing the destruction of other records-including outgoing RAAF messages
for 1950 -- supports the Chief Archivist's viewpoint.

During our review of records at FBI headquarters, we found a July 8, 1947,
teletype message from the FBI office in Dallas, Texas, to FBI headquarters
and the FBI office in Cincinnati, Ohio. An FBI spokesperson confirmed the
authenticity of the message.

According to the message, an Eighth Air Force headquarters official had
telephonically informed the FBI's Dallas office of the recovery near Roswell
of a hexagonal-shaped disc suspended from a large balloon by cable. The
message further stated that the disc and balloon were being sent to Wright
Field (now Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio) for examination. According
to The Eighth Air Force official, the recovered object resembled a
high-altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector. The message stated
that no further investigation by the FBI was being conducted. (A copy of the
teletype message appears in app. II.)

To follow up on the July 8th message, we reviewed microfilm abstracts of the
FBI Dallas and Cincinnati office activities for July 1947. An abstract
prepared by the FBI Dallas office on July 12, 1947, summarized the
particulars of the July 8th message. There was no mention in the Cincinnati
office abstracts of the crash or recovery of an airborne object near
Rosweil.

Because the FBI message reported that debris from the Roswell crash was
being transported to Wright Held for examination, we attempted to deterinine
whether military regulations existed for handling such debris. We were
unable to locate any applicable regulation. As a final step, we reviewed Air
Materiel Command (Wright Held) records from 1947 to 1950 for evidence of
command personnel involvement in this matter. We found no records mentioning
the Roswell crash or the examination by Air Materiel Command personnel of
any debris recovered from the crash.

         QUERIES TO FEDERAL AGENCIES REGARDING RECORDS ON THE CRASH

We sent letters to several federal agencies asking for any government
records they might have concerning the Roswell crash. In this regard, we
contacted DoD, the National Security Council, the White House Office of
Science and Technology Policy, the CIA, the FBI, and the Department of
Energy.

The National Security Council, the White House Office of Science and
Technology Policy, and the Department of Energy responded that they had no
government records relating to the Roswell crash. (Copies of their responses
appear in app. III, IV, and V.) The FBI, DoD, and the CIA provided the
following information.

                       FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

The FBI informed us that all FBI data regarding the crash near Roswell had
been processed under Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests previously
received by the Bureau. We reviewed the FBI's FOIA material and identified
the July 8, 1947, FBI teletype message discussing the recovery near Roswell
of a high-altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector. (A copy of the
FBI's response appears in app. VI.)

                           DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

DoD informed us that the U.S. Air Force report of July 1994, entitied
"Report of Air Force Research Regarding the Roswell Incident", represents
the extent of DoD records or information concerning the Roswell crash. The
Air Force report concluded that there was no dispute that something happened
near Roswell in July 1947 and that all available official materials
indicated the most likely source of the wreckage recovered was one of the
project MOGUL balloon trains. At the time of the Roswell crash, project
MOGUL was a highly classified U.S. effort to determine the state of Soviet
nuclear weapons research using balloons that carried radar reflectors and
acoustic sensors. (A copy of DoD's response appears in app. VII.)

                        CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

In March 1995, the CIA's Executive Director responded to our letter of
inquiry by stating that earlier searches by the CIA for records on
unidentified flying objects produced no information pertaining to the
Roswell crash. The Executive Director added, however, that it was unclear
whether the CIA had ever conducted a search for records specifically
relating to Roswell. In the absence of such assurance, the Executive
Director instructed CIA personnel to conduct a comprehensive records search
for information relating to Roswell. On May 30, 1995, the CIA's Executive
Director informed us that a search against the term "Roswell, New Mexico,"
in all CIA databases produced no CIA documents related to the crash. (A copy
of CIA's response appears in app. VIII.)

                               AGENCY COMMENTS

A draft of this report was provided to DoD for comment. DoD offered no
comments or suggested changes to the report. The Chief Archivist, National
Personnel Records Center offered several comments clarifying matters dealing
with records management. These comments have been incorporated into the
final report where appropriate.

The CIA, the Department of Energy, the FBI, the National Security Council,
and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy also received
excerpts from the report discussing the activities of their respective
agencies. They had no substantive comments and made no suggested changes to
the report.

                           SCOPE AND METHODOLOGY

To determine the requirements for reporting all accidents in 1947, we
interviewed military service records management officials, reviewed military
record-keeping regulations in effect during this time period, and examined
Army Air Forces and Navy air accident reports.

We also sought to identify any government records related to the Roswell
crash. In this regard, we visited and reviewed records at the locations
listed in table 1.

Footnote
(a) Project Sign was the predecessor to Project Blue Book.

Our search of government records was complicated by the fact that some
records we wanted to review were missing and there was not always an
explanation. Further, the records management regulations for the retention
and disposition of records were unclear or changing during the period we
reviewed.

We also queried the National Security Council, the White House Office of
Science and Technology Policy, the Department of Energy, the FBI, DOD, and
the CIA to determine what government records they have on the Roswell crash.
We did not independently verify the information provided to us in their
written responses.

In addition to physically examining government records, we contacted the
following federal activities to determine whether they had any information
about the Roswell crash:

* Air Force Historical Research Agency, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama; *
Air Force Aeronautical Systems Center, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base,
Ohio; * Army Center for Military History, Washington, D.C.; and * 509th Bomb
Wing, Office of the Historian, Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri.

We conducted our review from March 1994 to June 1995 in accordance with
generally accepted government auditing standards.

Unless you publicly announce its contents earlier, we plan no further
distribution of this report until 30 days after its issue date. At that
time, we will make copies avallable to other interested parties upon
request.

If you or your staff have any questions about this report, please call me. A
major contributor to this report is Gary K. Weeter, Assistant Director.

Sincerely yours,

The other three briefings were those which were given to the VIP and a
simulated briefing to a large group of Air Scouts representing all of the
troops in New Mexico which was given on 15 July 1947.

Several small projects were completed during the month including signs on
all the office doors, a building directory, and a world situation map which
is maintained on a day-to-day basis.

The Historical Section of S-2 has been seriously handicapped by the removal
of the regular stenographer with the reduction in force.

Due to the fact that the quality of the department reports has in general
been so inadequate, lectures are being prepared to be given early in August
to properly train the liaison representatives of each department.

The Office of Public Information was kept quite busy during the month
answering inquiries on the "flying disc", which was reported to be in the
possession of the 509th Bomb Group. The object turned out to be a radar
tracking ballooon.

The main project of the month was making all arrangements for a successful
Air Force Day. Lt. Golonel Oliver LaFarge, Air Reserve Corps, at Santa Fe,
made arrangements for Colonel Blanchard to visit the Governor of New Mexico
and ask him to declare Air Force Day in New Mexico on 7 August.

Dear Mr. Davis,

In a letter dated 30 March 1995, this Agency advised you that it would
conduct a comprehencive record search to aid in the completion of your
investigation of the crash of an airborne object near Roswell, New Mexico,
in July 1947. In accordance with your request, we have searched all of our
data bases against the terms "Project Mogul" and 'Roswell, New Mexico."

The search did not yield any documents related to either of these terms.
Therefore, this Agency has no information, beyond those records already
reviewed by Mr. Gary Weeter of your staff, relevant to your investigation.

                                     Sincerely,

                                     /s/ Nora Slatkin

The Honorable Steven H. Schiff
House of Representatives

Dear Mr. Schiff:

In response to your request, we asked several agencies for their views on
the authenticity of the publicly circulated written material referred to as
Majestic 12. The origin of this material is unknown, but it is purported to
represent highly classified government records explaining unidentified
flying object recovery procedures and the crash of a disc-shaped aircraft
near Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947.

Since the late 1980s, several federal agencies have been contacted by
nongovernmental persons and asked to comment on the authenticity of the
Majestic 12 material. The agencies contacted include

   * the Information Security Oversight Office (responsible for overseeing
     the information security programs of all executive branch agencies that
     create or handle classified national security information),
   * the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force, Deputy for Security and
     Investigative Programs, and
   * the National Archives.

These agencies responded to the inquiries by stating that their knowledge of
Majestic 12 was limited to the written material submitted to them by
nongovernmental persons. These agencies added that they found no records in
their files relating to Majestic 12. Moreover, the agencies' overall
conclusion concerning the authenticity of the Majestic 12 written material
was the same--there is no evidence that the Majestic 12 written material
constitutes actual documents originally created in the executive branch.
According to the Information Security Oversight Office and the Air Force,
the Majestic 12 material should not be treated as if it had ever been
actually classified by an executive branch agency or government official. We
found nothing in our work that contradicts the conclusions reached by these
agencies.

We also asked the archivists at the Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower
libraries for their views on the authenticity of the Majestic 12 material.
The archivists said that over the years they have received several inquiries
from the public concerning this material. In their search for related
records, including classified intelligence and National Security Council
documents, they found nothing that appeared to fit the description of the
Majestic 12 material or any references to this particular designation.

Lastly, during our review of material received from the public by the
Information Security Oversight Office in connection with past Freedom of
Information Act requests, we came across a message dated November 17, 1980.
The message, which appeared to have been originated by the Operations
Division of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI),
contained the words "MJ Twelve."

We contacted AFOSI to determine the authenticity of the November 1980
message. In a letter dated February 28, 1995, the Commander, AFOSI,
Investigative Operations Center, advised us that a search of AFOSI files
failed to disclose any official record copy of the message. The commander
also advised us that in connection with an earlier Freedom of Information
Act request, AFOSI had been asked to determine the authenticity of the
message. At that time, AFOSI concluded that the message was a forgery.

Sincerely yours,

/s/Richard Davis
Director, National Security
 Analysis



Bís note: Note the fact that many government records regarding Roswell have
disappeared, presumably destroyed, this was unauthorized, therefore ILLEGAL.
Strange isnít it, why would records regarding something that never happened be
illegaly removed- and by whom?  The words MAJIC are supposedly (probably) on
Area 51 IDís (Area 51 is, I believe owned by Lockheed Martin).  If MJ-12
exists (Iíve heard something to the extent that the project was officialy
ended a few years back, but that it is ongoing- who knows?) it mightíve
eliminated the Roswell evidence.  An above top secret project wouldnít be that
easy to track down and gov. officials would adamantly negate its existence if
they knew about it.  NASA did a very, very expensive study of the effect of a
sudden public knowledge that weíre not alone- but that there is another
intelligent race in contact with us.  Guess what the result was: mass panic,
chaos etc. . .  Thereís a hypothesis going around saying that the governments
are preparing the masses, for just that kind of an event,  through constant
pounding of alien conspiracy theories: X-Files, Millenium, Dark Skies, Psi
Factor, well you get the point.

             WHAT IS THE PHOENIX PROJECT?

   The Phoenix Project is a private, civilian, research
organization formed in 1952 to investigate and correlate
information concerning Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs)
and Extra-Terrestrial (ET) activities. It has no
affiliation with the United States Government or any of
its agencies.  Because of the nature of its work the
Phoenix Project does not seek publicity.

   Staff members are former military personnel who have
all been associated with intelligence activities, and
have knowledge of covert government operations concerning
UFO's. Their knowledge of the specialized field of
"intelligence correlation," provide unique insights into
various subject matter.

   From time-to-time and in the public interest, the
Phoenix Project will publish research reports regarding
certain subjects. A list of reports is available from our
publisher.  All correspondence should be addressed to:

                  THE ULTIMATE SECRET

             A Special Report and Overview
            Prepared by The Phoenix Project
                           
                      OVERVIEW: 

   The Top Secret Operation Majestic-12 was established
by order of President Harry S. Truman in 1947. Operation
Majestic-12, was created to take charge of the technical,
sociological and other aspects of the crashed UFOs and
the small alien occupants, dead or alive, that were
recovered. In later years this operation evolved into and
became known as MAJI (the Majority Agency for Joint
Intelligence). MAGI is the most secret of all
intelligence groups and out-ranks all other intelligence
agencies including the National Security Agency (NSA) and
the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). MAJI is
responsible directly and "only" to the President of the
United States.

/ MAJIC / MAJI

   The TOP SECRET / MAJI project control group is
responsible for every aspect of interface with the alien
lifeforms including security and intelligence, and
disinformation to prevent public or foreign disclosure of
the alien presence. (This is why all documents referring
to "MJ-12" or any other form of that name are wrong). 
MAJI is on-going in Washington DC. 

   MAJIC: Is the security classification of all MAJI and
Aquarius information. MAJIC means "MAJI CONTROLLED." 
MAJIC is the highest security classification in the
nation.

   MJ-1: DIRECTOR OF MAJI.  The Director of the CIA is
usually MJ-1 and reports only to the President.  Other
members of MAJI are designated MJ-2, MJ-3, MJ-4, etc. 
This is the reason MJ-12 cannot be used as a name for the
control group as it would cause confusion in meaning,
i.e., (Is it referring to MJ-12 the person or MJ-12 the
group.)  Any reference to MJ-12 is to a person and
nothing else. References and documents referring to
"MJ-12" as a "Group" are incorrect.

   MAJI, originally was known as Majestic-12, a group
consisting of twelve members. This group was made up of
a team representing selected government officials, U.S.
intelligence personnel, highly trained scientists,
business executives and military personnel. All were
sworn to total secrecy. MAJI has continued its covert
activities with the knowledge and consent of the last
eight Presidents. (See Exhibit 1, part of the briefing
papers for president-elect Eisenhower.)

   The group continues to function today and has had the
responsibility of establishing an ongoing relationship
dating from 1964, with UFO beings (the Greys) from the
third planet of the star system Zeta Reticuli.

   Information forwarded to and the activity of MAJI has
always been assigned an Above "Top Secret
classification," known as MAJIC. MAJI, to conceal its
existence, adopted the cover name of "Majestic-12." It
created numerous covert and compartmented sub-divisions
such as Projects Aquarius, Sigma, Snowbird and Garnet, to
name a few. These projects were sheltered by MAJI and
directed by select personnel of the Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA). 

   By secret Executive Memorandum NSC 5410, Eisenhower
had preceded NSC 5412/1 in 1954 to establish a permanent
committee to be known as Majority Twelve to oversee and
conduct all covert activities concerned with the alien
question. NSC 5412/1 was created to explain the purpose
of these meetings when Congress and the news media became
curious. Majority Twelve was made up of Nelson
Rockefeller, the director of the CIA Allen Welsh Dulles,
the Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, the Secretary
of Defense Charles E. Wilson, the Chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff Admiral Arthur W. Radford, the Director
of the FBI J. Edgar Hoover, and six men from the
executive committee of the Council on Foreign Relations
known as the "Wise Men." These men were all members of a
secret society of scholars that called themselves "The
Jason Society," or "The Jason Scholars" who recruited
their members from the "Skull and Bones" and the "Scroll
and Key" societies of Harvard and Yale.  

   The "Wise Men" were key members of the Council on
Foreign Relations. There were twelve members including
the first six from Government positions thus Majority
Twelve. This group was made up over the years of the top
officers and directors of the Council on Foreign
Relations and later the Trilateral Commission. Gordon
Dean, George Bush, and Zbigniew Brzezinski were among
them. The most important and influential of the "Wise
Men" who served on Majestic-12 were John McCloy, Robert
Lovett, Averell Harriman, Charles Bohlen, George Kennan,
and Dean Acheson. It is significant that President
Eisenhower as well as the first six Majestic-12 members
from the Government were also members of the Council on
Foreign Relations. However, not all the "Wise Men"
attended Harvard or Yale and not all of them were chosen
from the "Skull and Bones" or "Scroll and Key" membership
during their college years. [{Research indicates that
various members were chosen on an ongoing basis by
invitation based upon merit and was not confined to those
who had attended only Harvard or Yale}] Further
information regarding this can be obtained from the book
"The Wise Men" by Walter Issacson and Even Thomas, Simon
and Schuster, New York.

   A chosen few were later initiated into the Jason
Society. They are all members of the Council on Foreign
Relations and at that time were known as the "Eastern
Establishment." The Jason Society is alive and well today
but has expanded to include members of the Trilateral
Commission as well. The Trilateralists' existed secretly
several years before 1973. The name of the Trilateral
Commission was taken from the alien flag known as the
"Trilateral Insignia."  See Exhibit 10A The Jason
Society.

BACKGROUND:  

   In 1947 and again in the early 1950's, Army and Air
Force military units -- on direct orders from the
Pentagon -- rushed to various sites of UFO crashes
located in the Southwestern part of the United States and
carted away the unearthly remains. Remains consisting of
both crashed UFOs and their alien occupants. The 1947
events prompted the creation of Operation Majestic-12 by
President Truman. 

   The wreckage and dead bodies obtained from these early
crash retrievals were originally stored at Wright
Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. According to
military sources who later went against orders and
decided to talk, Hangar 18 was used for this purpose. All
reports of crashed UFOs and extraterrestrial contacts
have always bypassed normal reporting procedures and
channels of the military, and other intelligence
agencies. Instead, they were sent directly to Project
Aquarius. (See Exhibits 2 and 3). 

   All "hard" information regarding UFOs was routed
directly to Operation Majestic-12. This explains why
other intelligence agencies and Project Bluebook, [the
official and public Air Force investigative activity]
never received this information or knew about crashed
UFOs, recovered spacecraft, or alien beings. 

   In later years, a joint CIA/AF covert operation, using
six C-124 aircraft, recovered the wreckage, instruments,
dead bodies and alien artifacts of crashed UFOs from
Wright Patterson and other Air Force bases, world-wide,
and moved them to a newly-built, underground, storage
facility at Edwards Air Force, California. The entrance
to this underground facility is through a hangar located
at the end of the same runway now used by NASA's space
shuttles. According to eye-witness testimony, the CIA
agent in charge of this covert operation, wearing the
uniform of an AF Colonel, was William C. Cooper.

   Note: The information in the preceding paragraph was
supplied by an eye-witness who participated in the covert
operation described, working side-by-side with the CIA
agent in charge. This witness testifies that this is the
same William C. Cooper, who has been prominent since 1988
in the civilian UFO movement.  

CONCLUSIONS:  

   The Ultimate Secret, is that MAJI and the U.S.
government has in its possession spaceships manufactured
on other worlds, as well as the occupants of those
interstellar crafts. And, that since 1964, has maintained
radio contact with the aliens through Project Sigma. They
have also entered into various technical and "trade
agreements" with the beings from Zeta Reticuli, named the
Greys. (See Exhibit 4).

   Note: Communication with the Greys (by Project Sigma)
has been an accomplished fact since April of 1964.
Therefore, the NASA sponsored "SETI" Program (The Search
for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is merely being used
as another method to provide covert funding for MAJI
projects under the guise of a legitimate program. (See
Exhibit 5). 

   The Greys, as their part of the trade agreements, were
to provide MAJI and the U.S. government with various
forms of advanced technology. In exchange, the Greys are
provided with secret bases of operation within the United
States; bases protected by the Greys and U.S. Military
forces. In exchange, MAJI agreed to conceal all knowledge
of their presence. 

   Part of the "trade agreements" was an exchange program
that allowed the aliens to abduct U.S. Citizens for
experimental medical, psychological and genetic research
purposes -- the Grey's were to provide lists of persons
abducted to the National Security Agency (NSA), for later
government follow-up if such persons, when released,
required medical assistance or psychological adjustment.

ADDENDA

   During 1972-1973, a period of two years, an area South
of Groom Lake (one of the nation's most secret test
centers in Nevada) was closed and a huge underground
facility was constructed for and with the help of the
Greys. This facility was built South of Area-51 in
another location named Area-S4.  This location is just
east of, and adjacent to the Nevada Atomic Test site. 

   The bargained for technology was set in place, but
could only be operated by the Grey's themselves, to
prevent their advanced technology being used against
them. Another secret underground base was provided the
Greys in a location known as the "Ice Caves" near the Los
Alamos Laboratory Facility in New Mexico. Over a period
of the next six years, four more secret bases were
provided the Greys in other isolated areas of the United
States.

   During the years 1979 through 1983, it became
increasingly obvious to MAJI that things were not going
as planned. It became known that many more people (in the
thousands) were being abducted than were being listed on
the official abduction list. The list the Greys were
supplying the National Security Council, and MAJI. It was
apparent that the abductions included much more than the
simple monitoring experiments of an advanced
civilization.

   In late 1979, things had gotten almost entirely out of
hand when it became known that the Greys had implanted a
tiny probe, 3mm. in size, into the brains of certain
abductees before releasing them. MAJI investigators
determined the probe could be used to hypnotically and
telepathically program and monitor the person. In
addition, some abductees were programmed with unknown
post-hypnotic commands. The Greys also implanted tracking
devices just under the skin, on some abductees to monitor
their movements.    Attempts, by hypnosis, to determine
the nature of the hypnotic programming and commands
implanted by the Greys, triggered life-threatening
physical symptoms in these individuals making these
efforts unsuccessful. It was later discovered that the
Greys were performing genetic cross-breeding experiments
on some of the human female abductees. In 1983, MAJI
discovered the full magnitude of the Grand Deception put
over by the Greys. They were also shocked when the Soviet
Union (USSR) admitted that they, too, had been deceived
and that the Greys had entered into similar Treaties and
agreements with them. MAJI was in a state of confusion
and near panic as they realized their plans were dashed,
along with their hopes and dreams of obtaining the Grey's
technology and the secrets of interstellar spaceflight.

   This caused MAJI to become split along factional
lines. One faction advocating confessing the scheme and
the shambles it had become to the public, begging their
forgiveness and asking for their support. Note: This
faction is responsible for the leaks of sensitive
information regarding the activities of Operation
Majestic-12. The other faction rejected this saying there
was no way they could do that, even though the situation
was untenable, stating there was no use in alarming the
public of either country with the horrible truth. 

   This second faction won out and their plan to develop
a weapon that could be used against the Greys was
accepted by the Soviet Union. Under the guise of "SDI,"
(a joint US/Soviet effort) the Strategic Defense
Initiative (Star Wars), this weapon was developed. SDI,
has nothing whatever to do with a defense against Soviet
nuclear missiles. The nick-name "Star Wars" was closer to
the truth than the uninformed public realized.

   The "alarm," publicly expressed by the Soviet Union
regarding SDI, and its opposition to the program, were
all artfully crafted to conceal the joint nature of the
program and to prevent the Greys learning its real
purpose. The United States and the Soviet Union have been
secret allies since 1983. 

   Primarily, SDI is a weapon for use against the Greys'
underground bases or any attempted invasion from space.
However, to achieve funding from Congress and support
from the people, and to conceal its real nature from the
Greys, it had to be presented as a defense against a
nuclear strike from the USSR.

   The Soviet equivalent of MAJI used the same technique,
the development of a weapon to protect their country from
a U.S. nuclear strike, to obtain covert funding for the
joint effort. 

   The threat from the Greys is taken so seriously by
MAJI, that President Reagan adamantly refused any
concessions on SDI. He continued to vigorously pursue its
development, and deployment, in spite of uninformed
scientific and congressional opposition. These opponents
never knew its real and intended purpose.

   To accomplish the true objectives of the SDI program,
MAJI created another ultra-secret project -- Project
Zeus. Project Zeus is revealed here for the first time.

   Project Zeus, created under the umbrella of MAJI, is
charged with the real purpose, direction, management,
development and eventual deployment of the SDI Weapons
System. It was aptly named for the mythical Greek God --
Zeus. Only this time, it would be an angry Zeus hurling
laser and particle beam lightning bolts into the heavens
-- against an alien attack or, deflected by mirrors,
against secret alien bases on the Earth.

   In 1984, President Reagan in a public address
established the tone and seriousness of this endeavor
when he deliberately, or inadvertently, let slip the
remarks that the world may one day unite to fight a
threat from outer space. This was followed by a series of
subsequent remarks during the latter days of his term of
office.  (See Exhibit 7).

   The basic information revealing the existence of
Operation Majestic-12, the crashed UFOs, alien beings,
and their secret bases within the United States, was
obtained through the Freedom of Information Act from the
files of the CIA, NSA, FBI, State Department, the U.S.
Air Force. Other intelligence data obtained by The
Phoenix Project has contributed to this report.

   These documents reveal the "Above Top Secret" nature
of Operation Majestic-12. They also verify that the
scientific discovery of all time has been hidden from the
people of Earth, and that both communications and
relationships with extraterrestrial alien beings have
already been achieved. And, that the radical new
technology the Greys possess could alter human
civilization overnight.

   Some of these documents obtained by various civilian
researchers, verify the fact that we are not alone in the
universe. The additional information contained in this
report, i.e., notes and comments, and some of the
conclusions (in the addenda) are based on intelligence
information from other confidential sources.

PROJECT ZEUS

   In 1980, Lt. General Daniel O. Graham -- Department of
Defense Strategic Analyst, stated: "We need a bold new
approach. We must stop competing with the Greys in areas
where we can't win, and begin to compete where we have
the advantage."

   The result:  A book by General Graham entitled "The
High Frontier," and the National Security Agency (NSA)
funded "Project High Frontier." This project used some of
the nation's best engineers and development scientists.

   This book and the project were the "red herring"
technique to sell the concept and proposal to Congress,
scientists, and the defense and aerospace industries. It,
supposedly, was a bold, new, defense plan for the United
States and Western Civilization.

   This was followed by another book "The Strategy of
Technology" by Stefan Possony and Jerry Pournelle. It
should be mentioned that neither of these two authors
dreamed their book would be used to further promote the
purposes of MAJI and Project Zeus. Its concept was to
abandon the doctrine of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD),
in favor of Assured Survival, in any conflict with the
USSR.

   The foregoing concepts (a Western Civilization Defense
Plan) and the covert efforts directed against the Greys
(Project Zeus) orchestrated by MAJI, were presented to
President Ronald Reagan. That presentation was
successful. On March 23, 1983, President Reagan made his
famous "Star Wars" speech -- and labeled it "The
Strategic Defense Initiative." Only in later speeches,
near the end of his term in office, did President Reagan
publicly mention the possibility of a hostile encounter
with extraterrestrials. 

   The importance of this endeavor and the serious nature
of the threat presented by the Greys and the consequences
if Project Zeus were aborted, explain why the President
would not budge from his SDI position, even in the most
critical of nuclear arms' reduction negotiations with the
USSR, or critics in the scientific community and
Congress. 

   It also explains why President George Bush, still the
head of MAJI, is continuing to press forward with the SDI
project.

   According to public statements by General James
Abrahamson, SDI Project Director, "SDI" research has
turned up five ways the weapon system could, and would
work.

   "SDI," (Project Zeus, the covert operation against any
possible space threat, threatening action or invasion
attempts by the Greys), "is based on two technological
discoveries: 

   "1) That ground-based lasers are a feasible and a
likely way to defend a nation. Enormous lasers could be
built near large hydro-electric plants and operational
nuclear power plants, diverting the enormous output of
these sources to laser weapons. With such enormous lasers
and mirrors, in orbit to redirect the energy, it would
not be necessary to "point and shoot" such weapons; you
could raster an entire target area; sweeping the beam in
a deadly conical pattern to eliminate any target.
Planet-based laser weapons of such power could reach
beyond the Moon to engage and destroy hostile spaceships.

   "2) Press ahead with the research, development and
deployment of high-powered particle beam weapons from
orbiting space platforms and ground based installations."
(See Exhibit 8).

   MAJI's plans called for the funding, planning,
development, testing, and operational aspects of Project
Zeus to be concealed within the compartmented SDI
program. NASA, without knowledge of the real purpose
would orbit the necessary tracking and data relay
satellites, and Department of Defense (DOD) payloads of
laser mirrors. These SDI payloads were disguised and
classified as military communication, spy, and
navigational satellites. 

ADDENDA - continued 

   On April 4, 1983, Project Zeus "got off the ground"
with the maiden flight of the Space Shuttle Challenger --
a clear indication of the high-priority this project
commanded. The first of the SDI Tracking and Data Relay
Satellites (TDRS-A) was placed in orbit. 

   This was followed on August 30, 1984, when the Shuttle
Discovery, on its maiden flight, launched SYNCOM IV-2 the
second communications satellite for the Department of
Defense (DOD). 

   The SYNCOM satellites are DOD's high-priority command
and communications links with all U.S. military forces
worldwide. The on-going NASA Missions concerned with
Project Zeus and SDI, are identified in the attached
exhibits.

   Note: It is obvious that the Greys became suspicious
of the intense launch activity of NASA and the number of
Defense Department (DOD) payloads being placed in orbit
-- more than would logically be needed to counter a
nuclear strike by the USSR.

   Evidence to support this is their increasing
surveillance of the Space Shuttle missions and the
reported intercept, boarding, and inspection of the
Shuttle Discovery's cargo on 3/13/89. (See Exhibit 9).
They must suspect the real purpose of the SDI program. If
future SDI or DOD missions are interfered with it will
confirm this premise. 

ABSTRACT:  

   Operation Majestic-12 -- was created by the executive
order of President Truman on September 24, 1947, and its
first head was Dr. Vannevar Bush, the president's Chief
Science Advisor. The current head of Majestic-12 known
variously as Majority Twelve, Majority, MJ-12, Majority
Agency for Joint Intelligence (MAJI), was Vice President
and former CIA Director George Bush (1988). As of 1/8/89,
President George Bush. Today, this group operates under
the "public name" of the Senior Interagency Group (SIG).

   The organizational structure of MAJI, is as follows:

   GRUDGE/PROJECT AQUARIUS:  An umbrella group consisting
of MAJI, the CIA and the NSA in which all the various
compartments dealing with ET-related issues perform their
various functions. Under Project Aquarius four groups,
each consisting of several hundred persons, conducts
secret UFO investigations and research in four assigned
areas of the United States.  (See Exhibit 6)

   Separate projects under the umbrella of Project
Aquarius are: 

   PROJECT GRUDGE:  This project was originally
established in 1953, by order of President Eisenhower and
is under the control of the CIA, NSA, and MAJI. Project
Grudge went underground and another project, Project
Sign, was established as a cover operation.   

   In 1960, the Project's name was changed from Project
SIGN to Project Bluebook. Project Aquarius, became the
overall umbrella operation controlling all these
projects. Project Aquarius was funded by CIA confidential
funds (non-appropriated). The Project assumed full
responsibility for investigation and intelligence of
UFOs/IACs in December 1969 after Project Grudge/Blue Book
was closed. The purpose of Project Aquarius was to
collect all scientific, technological, medical and
intelligence information from UFO/IAC sightings and
contacts with alien lifeforms. This orderly file of
collected information has been used to advance the United
States' Space Program and provided the data needed to
develop present stealth technology.

   AQUARIUS; PROJECT PLATO:  Originally established as
part of Project SIGN in 1954 to establish diplomatic
relations with the Aliens. This Project was successful
when mutually acceptable terms were agreed upon. These
terms involved the exchange of technology for secrecy of
the Alien presence and non-interference in Alien affairs.
This Project is controlled by a secret task force
headquartered at the Los Alamos National Laboratories in
New Mexico and is ongoing. 

   AQUARIUS; PROJECT SIGMA:  Conducts electronic
communications with extraterrestrials, part of an
on-going contact project run by and through the NSA since
as early as late 1963 which led to the Holloman AFB
incident of April 25, 1964. (See Exhibit 4).

   AQUARIUS; PROJECT GARNET:  Closed down, supposedly, on
completion of its studies. Project Garnet's purpose was
to investigate extraterrestrial influence on human
affairs and evolution. 

   GRUDGE - AQUARIUS; PROJECT REDLIGHT:  Originally
established in 1954, the mission of Project Redlight was
to test fly recovered alien craft. This project, carried
out at Area 51 (Groom Lake) and Area S4 in Nevada was
postponed after every attempt resulted in destruction of
the craft and the death of the pilots.  Project Redlight
was resumed in 1972 and has since been partially
successful. UFO sightings of craft accompanied by black
helicopters are Project Redlight's assets. This project
is ongoing at Area 51 in Nevada. 

   REDLIGHT; PROJECT SNOWBIRD:  Originally established in
1954. Its mission was to develop [using conventional
technology] and fly a flying saucer type craft for the
public. This project was successful when a craft was
built and flown in front of the press. This project was
used to explain UFO sightings and to divert public
attention from Project Redlight. 

   AQUARIUS; PROJECT PLUTO:  Established to evaluate all
UFO/IAC information pertaining to the alien space
visitors. This project is ongoing. Pluto is the proword
for Pounce. 

   PLUTO; PROJECT POUNCE:  Originally known as Project
Moondust, this project, was formed to recover all
downed/crashed craft and aliens and provided cover
stories and operations to mask the true endeavor when
necessary. Covers which have been used: crashed
experimental aircraft, construction, mining, etc. This
project has also been successful and continues to this
date. 

   AQUARIUS; PROJECT GABRIEL:  This project was tasked
with developing a low frequency pulsed sound generator
when it was determined that the alien weapons and craft
would be vulnerable to this weapon. It is questionable
whether this project exists today. It was derived from
technology captured from Germany during and after WWII.
Intelligence sources have verified its previous existence
but cannot verify whether it is ongoing or has been
terminated.

   AQUARIUS; PROJECT EXCALIBUR:  Established to develop
a weapon which would destroy the alien underground bases
and any future underground bases which the aliens might
construct. It is to be a missile capable of penetrating
1000 meters of tufa/hard packed soil such as that found
in New Mexico with no operational damage. Missile apogee
is not to exceed 30,000 feet AGL. Impact must not deviate
in excess of 50 meters from a designated target. The
device is designed to carry a 1-megaton nuclear warhead.
This project is ongoing at the WX Division, LANL, Los
Alamos, New Mexico but is still in development. 

   In a secured area of the basement of CIA Headquarters
in Langley, Virginia are sixteen columns of file cabinets
containing thousands of folders of documented information
collected from the beginning of the United States'
investigation of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and
Identified Alien Crafts (IAC). These are the files of
Operation Majestic-12 and Project Aquarius and are known
as "The Bible." This Bible contains all the various
reports on aspects of alien visitations. Each president,
since Truman, has been briefed on Operation Majestic-12.

   The existence of Operation Majestic-12 has been
revealed by the dissident element within Majority Twelve
and leaked to the public on at least three occasions:

   1) On April, 9, 1983 -- To independent television
documentary producer Linda Howe. Ms. Howe was under
contract with HBO (the cable TV network) to produce a
documentary entitled "UFOs -- The ET Factor."  On the
above date, Ms. Howe was shown a document regarding
Majestic-12, by an Air Force officer. It was entitled "A
Briefing Paper for the President of the United States of
America on the Subject of Unidentified Flying Vehicles." 
The name "Majic" was prominent at the head of the
document. (See Exhibit 1)

   Note: Former Agent Richard Doty, Air Force Office of
Special Investigations, is the officer mentioned in the
above paragraph. 

   In December 1984, via the mail, in a plain brown
envelope, to private UFO investigator Bill Moore and his
film producer friend, and associate, Mr. Jaime Shandera.
Mr. Bill Moore is a well known private UFO investigator,
and is co-author, with Charles Berlitz, of the book "The
Roswell Incident."  Unknown to the public is the fact
that Bill Moore was recruited as an agent of the CIA.

   The envelope contained an undeveloped roll of 35mm
film. When the film was processed it contained a
photograph of a briefing paper prepared for
President-elect Eisenhower, and other documents. The
first page of the document is reproduced and shown as
Exhibit A. Other sections of the document contained
information regarding details of crashed UFOs and
humanoid bodies, and information regarding the
ultra-secret Operation Majestic-12 group which deals with
these issues. 

   3) On May 31, 1987, when the existence of an
ultra-secret U.S. UFO Project -- "Majestic," was
published on the front page of the London Observer, a
British newspaper. British writer Timothy Good, had
obtained the information through sources connected with
England's Ministry of Defense. In 1988, it was alleged
that Bill Moore had become an agent of Operation
Majestic-12 and had been "planted" in the civilian UFO
movement for the purpose of providing dis-information to
mis-guide and confuse other UFO researchers.

   9/29/88 -- Project Zeus -- SDI --Shuttle Discovery,
Mission STS-26.
NASA Pub # MR-026, NASA Facts, KSC Release No. 27-89

Payload: A 4,905 pound communications Satellite (The
Tracking and Data Relay Satellite-TDRS) one of the
largest and heaviest applications satellites ever sent
into orbit. TDRS-C was the prime objective of the
mission, and is expected to improve Earth-to-space and
space-to-earth voice and data exchanges. TDRS-C will
increase the capacity of command data flows for unmanned
research and applications satellites orbiting at
relatively low altitudes. The STS-26 crew are all
experienced astronauts.

Commander: Frederick H. Hauck (Capt. USN)
Pilot:     Richard Covey (Lt. Col. USAF)

Mission Specialists:
David C. Hilmers (Lt. Col. USAF)
John M. Lounge (USN, Retired)
George D. Nelson - Astronomer

   The TDRS-C satellite was lifted to its 22,302 mile
orbit by an AF IUS rocket, after being deployed by the
shuttle, for positioning over the equator north of the
Phoenix Islands, south of Hawaii, in the Pacific Ocean
(171 Degrees west longitude). There the satellite can
work in tandem with an identical TDRS-1 positioned in
geosynchronous orbit in 1983 over the Atlantic Ocean near
Fortaleza, Brazil (41 degrees west longitude). These two
satellites can act as data relays for other satellites. 

   TDRS-C will maintain nearly uninterrupted
communications with the ground and will rapidly transmit
huge volumes of data. 

   So vast is the capacity of these two satellites that,
at their highest transmission rates, they can in a single
second transfer data equaling the contents of a 20-volume
encyclopedia with 1200 pages in each volume and 2000
words on each page.

   A third Tracking and Data Relay Satellite, TDRS-D,
will be launched at a later date and deployed over the
Atlantic Ocean. It will replace TDRS-1, which will be
relocated south of White Sands, New Mexico where it will
serve as an in-orbit spare.

   One communications experiment inside the shuttle
spacecraft was the testing of a new voice communications
system using infrared waves rather than standard radio
frequencies. An advantage of infrared is it cannot pass
through the spacecraft's windows as can radio waves.
Infrared communications would prevent a spacecraft from
eavesdropping, thus protecting sensitive astronaut
conversations, and enhancing security, and the crew's
privacy.

   Note: This extraordinary procedure must pertain to the
Greys. Note the word "spacecraft."  Whose?  Earlier NASA
Missions had reported UFO encounters. The Greys are
suspicious.

   12/2/88 -- Project Zeus -- SDI -- Shuttle Atlantis,
Mission STS-27. 
NASA Facts, KSC Release No. 84-88

   The newest shuttle Atlantis lifted off today from
Kennedy Space Center on a classified mission for the
Department of Defense. 

   This flight is the first of three national security
missions conducted in fiscal 1989 by NASA for the Defense
Department. STS-27 will have a five-member crew. All are
military personnel. 

Commander: Robert L. Gibson (Cmdr. USN)
Pilot:     Guy S. Gardner (Lt.Col. USAF)

Mission Specialists:
Richard M. Mullane (Col. USAF)
Jerry L. Ross (Lt.Col. USAF)
William M. Shepard (Cmdr. USN)

   The Shuttle Atlantis has flown twice before: Mission
51-H in October 1985, a classified DOD mission; and 61-B
in November 1985.

   Note:  The payload consisted of two orbiting mirrors
for SDI (Project Zeus) and a communications and spy
satellite for DOD.


   3/13/89 -- Project Zeus -- SDI -- Shuttle Discovery,
Mission STS-29. 
NASA Facts, KSC Release No. 8-89

   The Space Shuttle Discovery launched at 9:57 a.m. EST
today has as its primary objective the deployment of a
Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS-D).

   The TDRS-D, to become TDRS-4 in orbit, will be
deployed on the first day of the mission. The satellite
will join TDRS-1 and -3 in orbit to provide high-capacity
communications and data links. 

   TDRS-1, also designated TDRS-East, is now in
geosynchronous orbit over the Atlantic Ocean just east of
Brazil. TDRS-3, designated TDRS-West, was launched by
Discovery on mission STS-26 in September of 1988, and is
positioned over the Pacific Ocean south of Hawaii. TDRS-4
will replace TDRS-1 over the Atlantic as TDRS-East.
TDRS-1 will then be relocated south of White Sands, New
Mexico where it will serve as an in-orbit spare.

   The five member crew of Discovery for STS-29 are:

Commander: Michael L. Coats (Capt. USN)
Pilot:     John E. Blaha (Col. USAF)

Mission Specialists:
James F. Buchli (Col. USMC)
Robert C. Springer (Col. USMC)
James R. Bagian (M.D.) Civilian Doctor

   In addition to launching the TDRS Satellite, the crew
of Discovery will conduct numerous scientific experiments
and photograph the Earth with a hand-held IMAX camera.

   4/26/89 -- Project Zeus -- SDI -- Magellan Venus
Probe, Shuttle Atlantis, 
Mission STS-30.
AP Wire:

   The Atlantis commander says his crew is mighty proud
to be part of the first space shuttle planetary mission
scheduled to blast-off this Friday. The countdown, which
started Tuesday, continued toward a liftoff at 2:24 p.m.
Friday.

   Six hours after launch, astronauts Mark Lee and Mary
Cleave are to release the 7,600-pound Magellan probe and
a rocket to propel it on a 468-day journey to Venus.
Magellan is to reach its destination in August 1990,
swooping into orbit around Venus to begin a 243-day
period during which it is to map up to 90 percent of the
cloud-shrouded planet's surface with the probe's high
resolution radar system.

   "We're not really in charge of the deep space probe,"
said Commander David Walker. "We're fortunate enough to
be part of the team that gets to send it up there. The
rest of the NASA team will make sure that it gets to
Venus and does its job."

UPDATE:  NASA, KSC Release # 24-89, March 1989

   Magellan marks the first U.S. planetary mission since
Pioneer Venus 12 in 1978. It also kicks off a core
program of solar system exploration involving NASA and
organizations from the United States and the
international community.

   Project ZEUS:  One of the payload experiments on this
Shuttle Mission includes the Mesoscale Lighting
Experiment, a NASA sponsored effort involving several
universities. Its objective is to study the visual
characteristics of large scale lighting in the upper
atmosphere. 

   Note: Part of the Project Zeus effort to study laser
beam diffusion in the upper atmosphere.

   In addition, as another experiment, the Shuttle
Atlantis will act as a calibration point for a third
experiment involving the Air Force Maui Optical System
Facility in Hawaii.

   Note: Project Zeus - SDI Experiment.

   Although unstated in this NASA Release, Atlantis is
acting as an orbital target being tracked by the Air
Force facility (SDI ground based laser facility) named in
the above paragraph.

   1989 -- 8/8/89 -- Project Zeus - SDI -- Shuttle
Columbia -- Mission ?? 
AP Wire & Mercury News Service 7/27/89

   The Space Shuttle Columbia lifts off with five
military astronauts and a classified Pentagon spy
satellite. Columbia will be making the 30th shuttle
flight and the fourth this year, solely dedicated to the
Defense Department. For national security purposes, the
Pentagon would not permit NASA to announce the exact
liftoff time or the length of the mission.

   Note: The payload is the last of 4 orbiting laser
mirrors for SDI. With this mission completed, SDI becomes
partly operational. It is estimated that SDI will become
fully operational within the next 12 months, barring
unforeseen events. 

   Note: The following NASA launch information was
derived from the American Academic Encyclopedia. The
Project Zeus (SDI) comments, are those of the Phoenix
Project.

Discovery

The long-awaited Hubble SPACE TELESCOPE was finally
placed in a high orbit by Discovery's crew of four,
commanded by Loren J. Shriver, during the Apr. 24-29,
1990 flight, but Columbia, scheduled for launch the
following month, was grounded by a series of hydrogen
leaks, as was Atlantis.  

   1990 -- 11/15/90 -- Project Zeus - SDI - Shuttle
Atlantis

The 37th flight of the space shuttle program took place
on Atlantis, from Nov. 15-20, 1990, carrying a secret
military payload into orbit. Unconfirmed reports
suggested that Atlantis carried a spy satellite intended
to monitor activities in Iraq and the Persian Gulf
region. Mission commander was Air Force Col. Richard O.
Covey, and he was assisted by a crew of four.  

   1991 -- 4/28/91 -- Project Zeus - SDI - Shuttle
Discovery  

Space shuttle Discovery was launched on Apr. 28, 1991,
and returned to Earth on May 6. Its military mission was
concerned with collecting data for the Strategic Defense
Initiative ("Star Wars") antimissile program. Mission
commander was U.S. Navy Capt. Michael L. Coats. He was
assisted by a pilot and crew of four.  

   1991 -- 8/2/91 -- Project Zeus - SDI - Shuttle
Atlantis

Flight number 42 for the Space Shuttle program--and the
ninth for the Atlantis--was launched on Aug. 2, 1991, and
returned safely to Earth on August 11. The crew, under
the command of Air Force Col. John E. Blaha, consisted of
three men and one woman. The mission successfully
deployed the Department of Defense's large Tracking and
Data Relay Satellite, sending it into an orbit about
22,000 miles (35,400 km) above the equator. The mission
also conducted experiments on the ozone layer, made
medical experiments, and tested computer and mechanical
equipment.

UFO Folklore ! ...: This site is pretty cool ! ...
Metacrawler Query on UFOs: heh, sorry im lazy...
as i promised- here's some interesting stuff . MJ-12 Documents What the fuss is all about. Are they forgeries? On December 11, 1984, TV Producer Jaime Shandera found two documents stamped TOP SECRET in his mailbox. One was dated September 24, 1947, the other November 18, 1952. The first was signed by President Harry Truman. The second was addressed to President Dwight Eisenhower from Admiral Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, a former director of CIA. The document signed by Truman claimed to be a classified executive order to Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, authorizing him to establish a board of experts, answerable only to the President, and to be known as Majestic-12 (MJ-12). Their job was to investigate the crash of a Flying Saucer near Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947. The documents appeared to be proof that the Roswell saucer, long the subject of rumor and speculation, had really happened. The second document supported the first and was a top secret briefing for the newly elected President on the members of MJ-12 and their progress in the investigation. Shandera waited for over two years to make the documents public on May 29, 1987. His associates in the revelation were William Moore, coauthor of The Roswell Incident, and crashed saucer expert Stanton Friedman. Moore's and Friedman's theories stood to be vindicated if the documents were real! The three claimed to have found further documentary backing for the existence of MJ-12 in the person of a "highly placed military intelligence operative" who could authenticate the story. The source was discredited when he turned out to be a USAF sergeant once found guilty of falsifying documents. *1 The documents, subjected to intense scrutiny, were soon shown to have been falsified as well when it was revealed that the 1947 document was actually written on a Smith Corona typewriter ....... not manufactured until 1963. Hillenkoetter's memo was dated in an odd mixture of civilian and military styles and he had *2 signed himself Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, which form was never used before or since on any of the volumes of surviving *3 correspondence. A close inspection of Truman's signature revealed that it was a photocopy of a signature on a letter from Truman to nuclear scientist, Dr. Vannevar Bush, written on October 1, 1947. Since Hillenkoetter's memo refers specifically to Truman's "Classified Executive Order" of 1947, it follows that both are fakes. *4 The MJ-12 documents may be a case of someone conspiring to create a conspiracy. The clumsiness of the hoax suggests that it may have been intended to be exposed, thereby implicating the CIA or other intelligence agencies (who would have easy access to the signatures) in an attempt to discredit the *5 pro-UFO groups and, in particular, Stanton Friedman, who has researched and documented the Roswell crash for many years. But the evidence, if not planted by intelligence agencies, appears to indicate that one of the pro-UFO groups invented the evidence that they were convinced really existed somewhere. When all the evidence points to only one conclusion, you can bet the evidence has been planted. Anyone who produces such evidence, particularly if it irrefutably supports their theory will, with good reason, be first to fall under suspicion. That does not mean, however, that they perpetrated the hoax! Illuministís notes: *1- it really isnít that hard to convict a military person of falsifying documents, especially if the men behind the men (mbm) give the order to convict, plus if the court was military than it would be what you call a political trial- no justice. *2 the briefing note was written towards a president, normally assumed to be a CIVILIAN not a military mastermind (Eisenhower was a majorly important general in WWII as I remember, though), plus when two people write too each other it isnít necessary to use exact formal straight military speech (two lawyers talking, or writing t each other will probably use mixed speech not 100% law jargon). *3- ouch- but 1) mightíve been an exception, say for example that due to the occasion he decided that it was appropriate too use full name. Very shaky argument though. *4- Iím sorry, I just donít see the necessary connection, in a false document. you can refer too something true for added credibility. *5- the Freedom of Information Act wasnít around at that time, I think Clinton passed it, so thatís true. ĎThe truth is best hidden between two liesí also ĎThe Truth is the best lie.í They both apply. Theres some more stuff my main man UFO info guy Bogdan sent to me...
