Electro-magnetic Effects Electro-Magnetic Effects Associated with Unidentified Flying Objects, June 1960 (694k)
The Washington D.C. Subcommittee of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) wrote this June 1960 report on electro-magnetic effects associated with Unidentified Flying Objects. Handwritten in the corner is "CIA Copy," which was how it was received. The 25-page document provides plenty of details about numerous electro-magnetic interference cases, including events where vehicles stalled, presumably due to lack of spark, and headlights bent or stopped in mid air. 


British Bio War/UFOs British Scientific Intelligence Bio War/UFOs, 6 May 1950 (14k)
Perhaps the most controversial entry contained within the Majestic Twelve 1st Annual Report is the reference to a linkage between recovered alien bodies and biological warfare research. Entry F in the report states:
F. Biological Warfare Programs BW programs in U.S. and U.K. are in field test stages. Discovery of new virus and bacteria agents so lethal, that serums derived by genetic research, can launch medical science into unheard of fields of biology. The samples extracted from bodies found in New Mexico, have yielded new strains of a retro-virus not totally understood, but, give promise of the ultimate BW weapon. The danger lies in the spread of airborne and bloodborne outbreaks of disease in large populations, with no medical cures available.
Until the time that the 1st Annual Report surfaced, there was no official or unofficial documentation in the public domain that made a connection between UFOs and biological warfare. However, a document has surfaced officially at the Public Record Office, Kew, England, that also makes a connection with UFOs and biological warfare.
The document is one-page in length and is dated 6 May 1950. It is a memo for the attention of the British Ministry of Defense’s Scientific and Technical Intelligence Branch and is titled "Subject: Bacteriological Warfare Article." Its content state:
Forwarded herewith is a further installment of a series of articles at present appearing in the publication “Kristall” by Dr. STUBENBAUER. 2. Your attention is also drawn to the article on “Flying Saucers” appearing in the same publication.
As this document makes clear and as can now be verified officially, there were sources within the British Ministry of Defense in the early 1950’s that were interested in both bacteriological warfare and UFOs. Not only that, reports on both subjects were being sent to the MoD’s Scientific and Technical Intelligence Branch under cover of the same memoranda.

Validating the First Annual Report: An Important Development (136k)
Important documentation has surfaced at the Public Record Office, Kew, England, that validates information contained within the 1st Annual Report. Entry 7 in Annex C of the report refers to an incident that allegedly occurred on 14 October 1943 when a number of Foo Fighters were seen during 8th AF Mission 115 over Schweinfurt, Germany. The validity of this incident was for many years questioned by numerous researchers and investigators, as the official records on the case could not be found. However, they have now been located in the UK by British author and researcher Andy Roberts. The British Royal Air Force document on the incident acquired by Roberts confirms the facts in the Annex C, Entry 7 account as related in the 1st Annual Report. The document is copyrighted to the British Government and therefore is not available for reproduction. However, Nick Redfern’s paper on this development, Validating the 1st Annual Report: An Important Development, can be downloaded here.

Roswell Teletype Roswell Teletype, 8 July 1947 (50k)
Of the thousands of pages of official documentation that have surfaced on the subject of UFOs under the terms of the U.S. Government’s Freedom of Information Act, references to the Roswell and New Mexico UFO crashes of 1947 are few and far between. But they do exist. One such example is an FBI Teletype of 8 July 1947.
On 10 July 1947, Brigadier General George F. Schulgen (Chief of the Requirements Intelligence Branch of Army Air Corps Intelligence) met with Special Agent S.W. Reynolds of the FBI with a view to determining if the Army Air Force could solicit the assistance of the Bureau on a regular basis in its investigation of the UFO mystery.
Declassified FBI memoranda shows that the Bureau had been monitoring the UFO subject on an ad hoc basis in the wake of the Kenneth Arnold sighting of 1947. It was this meeting between Schulgen and Reynolds that cemented the way for a short-lived liaison between the FBI and the military in the investigation of UFO reports.
Only forty-eight hours before this now-historic meeting took place, however, the FBI was briefly implicated in what is certainly the most-talked about UFO incident in history – Roswell.
On 8 July 1947, the FBI office at Dallas forwarded a 1-page teletype message to FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, concerning the events at Roswell. It is evident, however, that the FBI was in possession of only half the story. That “half” having been supplied sometime previously by Major Edwin M. Kirton (name deleted on the FBI record originally released in 1976) of Army Air Force Intelligence at Fort Worth, Texas.
According to the documentation released by the FBI, on the day in question Kirton contacted the FBI at Dallas and informed them that, yes, something “purporting to be a flying disc” had indeed been recovered at Roswell. The disc, said Kirton, was hexagonal in shape and was suspended from a 20-foot diameter balloon by a cable. Kirton further advised the FBI that the object resembled a high-altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector. A telephone conversation between Kirton’s office and Wright Field had not borne out this belief, however. Kirton informed the FBI that the material was being transported to Wright Field for examination and that he was passing the information on to the FBI because of “national interest” in the case and the fact that the Press was “attempting to break [the] story of [the] location of [the] disc today.”
Kirton concluded his conversation by assuring the Bureau that the results of the study of the Roswell material would be forwarded to the FBI Field Office at Cincinnati. Interestingly and perhaps not surprisingly, no further documentation on this aspect of the Roswell affair has surfaced. If either FBI Headquarters or the Cincinnati Office were informed of the results of the examination of the Roswell debris, those papers have failed to surface via the FOIA. It is also of interest to note that, according to the INTERPLANETARY PHENOMENON UNIT SUMMARY of 9 July 1947: “…FBI interest was curtailed and access to stored craft at Los Alamos was denied upon request of Deputy COS Lt. General Collins.”
This accords well with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s hand-written notes that appear at the foot of a 10 July 1947 FBI document pertaining to UFOs, in which Hoover writes: “…we must insist upon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the La [Los Alamos?] case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination.”
Despite the relative lack of official FBI documentation in the public domain on the Roswell events, there are indications of deeper FBI knowledge on this matter:
  1. On 5 December 1950, the FBI was informed by Army Intelligence at Richmond, that the military had “been put on immediate high alert for any data whatsoever concerning flying saucers.” This was one day before, according to the MJ12-Eisenhower Briefing Document, a UFO crashed at El Indio-Guerroro area of the Texas-Mexican border.
  2. On 30 November 1988, an arranged meeting took place between representatives of the FBI and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations in Washington, D.C., to discuss the MJ12 papers that were in the public domain at that time. The Air Force informed the Bureau that the papers were bogus. This is borne out by the fact that any requests to the FBI for information pertaining to MJ12 will result in copies of the MJ12 papers being dispatched to the requester with the word BOGUS written across them in heavy ink. The AFOSI has stated in response to FOIA requests that nothing was committed to paper on their part with respect to this meeting and they concede further that they undertook no investigation into the authenticity or otherwise of the MJ12 papers, which begs an important question. How was the Air Force able to inform the FBI with confidence that the MJ12 papers were “bogus” if they had conducted no investigation into their contents?
  3. Two of the premier investigators of the Roswell crash – Stanton Friedman and William Moore (who co-wrote the book, The Roswell Incident, with Charles Berlitz) have been the subject of FBI investigations. In the case of Moore, by 1993 the FBI file on him was running at 61 pages, of which Moore was able to gain access to only six.
As all of the above information shows, the Roswell Incident and the FBI have at various times between intimately connected. How much more information pertaining to Roswell, MJ12 and the many and varied investigators that have researched the case and that remains unseen outside of official circles is unknown at this time.
Smith Memo Wilbert B. Smith Memo, 21 November 1951 (original and replica) (99k)
Perhaps the most important document ever released in Canada is the Top Secret memo of November 21, 1951 from Wilbert B. Smith, senior radio engineer with the Canadian Department of Transportation. Smith was a highly respected employee, with a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering and several patents to his credit. The memo was sent to the Controller of Telecommunications and recommended that a research project be set up. "We believe that we are on the track of something which may well prove to be the introduction of a new technology," Smith wrote.
"The existence of a different technology is borne out by the investigations which are being carried on at the present time in relation to flying saucers." Smith goes on to state that:
  1. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States government, rating higher than the H-bomb,
  2. Flying saucers exist,
  3. Their modus operandi is unknown but a concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Dr. Vannevar Bush, and
  4. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance.
Here is an unarguable link between Vannevar Bush and UFO reverse-engineering which the Majestic documents describe.
Project Silver Bug Project Silver Bug, 15 February 1955 (2.4 MB*)
*please note this file may take up to 30 min. to download on a slow connection
This 30-page FOIA release of a formerly Top Secret "Project Silver Bug," developed at Wright-Patterson AFB, was made to Tim Cooper in October '97. All the "release information" is printed on the cover page for the reader to see. This "saucer" designed aircraft uses "gas turbine engines," a conventional power source. The report is a preliminary design document that includes sectional drawings, performance characteristics, weight breakdowns, control systems, and problem areas.
This 1955 report does, however, fit into another story relating to U.S. Air Force interest in testing saucer designs. According to a now retired AF Lt. Col., in 1954, while a 2nd Lt., he and a few other 2nd Lt.'s came across a table full of "wind tunnel test model saucers" while in a wind tunnel test building of Area "C," Wright-Patterson AFB. It is illogical to assume that USAF as well as foreign militaries do not have modern versions of this type of craft.
Some have argued that reported UFOs are U.S. government or even Nazi experimental craft. However, those arguments can't account for the extreme maneuverability and accelerations seen in UFO reports. The right angle turns, the over the horizon disappearances in seconds; no conventional power source could provide the performance characteristics described.

Kennedy: NSA Memo No. 271 President Kennedy: National Security Action Memorandum No. 271, 12 November 1963 (185k)
President Kennedy signed this declassified memo dated 12 November 1963. It is a National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) No. 271 directed to the administrator of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), James Webb. The subject matter is surprising, namely “Cooperation with U.S.S.R. on Outer Space Matters.” It opens with, “I would like you to assume personally the initiative and central responsibility with the Government for the development of a program of substantive cooperation with the Soviet Union in the field of outer space, including the development of specific technical proposals. I assume that you will work closely with the Department of State and other Agencies as appropriate.” It goes on to mention: “…broader cooperation between the United States and the U.S.S.R. in outer space, including cooperation in lunar landing programs. …In this connection the channel of contact developed by Dr. Dryden between NASA and the Soviet Academy of Sciences has been quite effective, and I believe we should continue…” This memo cross checks with a Top Secret memo of the same date that is part of the leaked Majestic documents cache (John F. Kennedy to CIA, November 1963) which states that with the joint cooperation efforts, make sure to explain in a credible way the impact of knowns (terrestrial aircraft), and unknowns (UFOs).

Concepts of ET Life (NASA) Concepts for Detection of ET Life, NASA, 1965
This NASA document written in 1965 is titled "Concepts for Detection of Extraterrestrial Life" (NASA SP-56). This copy was released from the U.K. via Nick Redfern. Note the stamps on the cover that mention the University of Warwick and A. V. Roe & Co. Ltd. Weapons Research Div. Woodford, Wilkshire.

Guild to Hall RE: IPU Col. William Guild FOIA Response to Richard Hall Re: IPU, 25 September 1980 (145k)
This FOIA response to Richard Hall dates 25, September 1980 clearly confirms the existence of the Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit part of the Scientific and Technical Branch of the Counterintelligence Directorate was disestablished during the late 1950’s and allegedly never reactivated. Their files were surrendered to the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI).
CAUS vs. NSA Citizens Against UFO Secrecy vs. The National Security Agency In Camera Affidavit, 9 October 1980 (557k)
This Top Secret UMBRA document, specifically Civil Action lawsuit No. 80-1562 Citizens Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS) versus the National Security Agency (NSA) clearly confirms deep and widespread government involvement with UFOs. This document was released and declassified as a result of a FOIA process and shows numerous blackout areas related to COMINT (communications intelligence) and SIGINT (signals intelligence). This in camera affidavit for Judge Eugene F. Yeates is simply a justification by the NSA to withhold the information that CAUS was seeking. Furthermore, the key agency or organization that performed the analysis and search is blacked out.
Sarbacher to Steinman Memo Dr. Robert Sarbacher to William Steinman Memo, 29 November 1983 (original & replica) (233k)
This two-page memo is a response to William Steinman’s original memo of 18 May 1983 in which Steinman names nine scientists that took part in the 1948 UFO crash retrieval 12 miles Northeast of Aztec, New Mexico. Dr. Sarbacher, of the Washington Institute of Technology, confirms that John Von Neuman, Vannevar Bush, and Robert Oppenheimer were definitely involved. The letter goes on to state: “…certain materials reported to have come from flying saucer crashes were extremely light and very tough. I am sure our laboratories analyzed them very carefully… I remember in talking with some of the people at the office (Pentagon) that I got the impression these ‘aliens’ were constructed like certain insects we have observed on earth…” The reality of the Aztex crash is not well established.
Steinman letter Steinman Letter Re: IPU, 16 May 1984 (25k)
This letter dated May 16, 1984 from Lt. Col. Lance R. Cornie to William S. Steinman provides more official evidence that the Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit (IPU) did exist and that their records were transferred to the Air Force. The memo is suspicious in its categorical denials and claims based only on "institutional memory." For example, it states that "It was never a 'unit' in the military sense, nor was it ever formally organized or reportable, it had no investigative function, mission or authority and may not have had any formal records at all." Yet the unit "was formed as in-house project purely as an interest item of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence." Note that from 1941 to the late 50's when it was allegedly disestablished there have been many Assistant COS-G2, most of which have been directly linked to the MJ-12 program, such as Stephen J. Chamberlain or George C. McDonald.
Project Moondust - Somali Explosion Project Moondust: Somali Explosion, 25 January, 1996 (52k)
This 3-page document, titled Somaliland President Egal Speaks on Mysterious Bomb Blast, dates from January 1996 and concerns a series of "mysterious explosions" that had occurred in the same month and year in the eastern part of Somaliland. The report (that originated with the CIA and that was forwarded to the State Department, Defense Intelligence Agency and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base among others) states that in some quarters the explosions had been attributed to UFOs. Interestingly, the document also states that the physical and mental health of both animals and people in the region had been adversely affected by whatever it was that had exploded. Symptoms included dementia, skin rashes, boils on the skin, aching stomachs, and skin shedding. The document states that the object that crashed or exploded was moving at supersonic speed but due to the size and remoteness of the area, a search for debris had been unsuccessful. The reference to people having physical reactions is not unlike the references in the Majestic 12 1st Annual Report and the Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit document about individuals having adverse (and fatal) reactions to an alien virus at the scene of a UFO crash site in 1947.
Project Moondust Files
Project Moondust - Agadir, Morocco Project Moondust: Agadir, Morocco, 18 January 1967 (24k)
A one-page Department of Defense document dated 18 January 1967 discusses a UFO incident at Agadir, Morocco, and again makes a clear and undeniable link between UFO studies and Project Moondust investigations. It states in part: "…this sighting demonstrates a high level of local interest in the subject of UFOs and presages future reporting which could be valuable in pursuit of Project MOON DUST."
Project Moondust - UFO Sighting at Kasba Tadla, Morocco Project Moondust: UFO Sighting at Kasba Tadla, Morocco, 6 April 1967 (22k)
A one-page Department of Defense document dated 6 April 1967 and titled UFO Sighting at Kasba Tadla, Morocco makes a clear link between UFOs and Project Moondust. In part, the document states that: "…it indicates continued local interest in UFOs" and directly references Project Moondust as being relevant to the investigation.
Project Moondust - 42 page package Project Moondust: 42 Page Package, 18 November 1973 (973k)
Additional documentation demonstrating a link between UFOs and Project Moondust comes via a package of 42 pages of documentation that were all released as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request to the State Department for files on Moondust. The first entry is titled Project Moondust and dates from November 1973 and concerns the recovery of what may have been Soviet satellite debris. However, also included in this 42 page package are: (a) documents on a 1978 discussion concerning the potential of having the United Nations undertake UFO investigations; (b) UFO sightings in Afghanistan; (c) a UFO encounter in Kuwait in 1980 that "shut down" the pumping system of a local oil pumping device; (d) the recovery of a spherical object in Buenos Aries in 1984; and (e) a 1984 report titled Unidentified Objects Observed on Radar Screen at Grantley Adams International Airport.

Project Moondust - Santa Cruz, Bolivia Object Recovery Project Moondust: Santa Cruz, Bolivia Object Recovery, May 1978 (212k)
These 2 pages of documentation were forwarded to the State Department by the CIA and detail the crash of "an unidentified object" in Bolivian territory in May 1978. The object was reportedly 4 meters in diameter and Bolivian authorities had sealed off an area of 200 km around the crash site.
Project Moondust - Santa Cruz, Bolivia Project Moondust: Santa Cruz, Bolivia, August 1979 (476k)
In April of 2007 Air Intelligence Agency, part of the US Air Force through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) confirmed that in August 1979 a pair of weird spheres crashed near Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The documents not only verify what Ryan S. Wood has already revealed in his book Majic Eyes Only, but also provides additional intriguing details and references to “MOON DUST,” the prominent governmental space debris and UFO retrieval program designed to locate, recover, and deliver descended foreign space vehicles back to Wright Patterson Foreign Technology Division headquarters for analysis and exploitation. According to several eye-witnesses, two “balls of fire” fell from the sky and softly landed in the cities of Santa Cruz and Cotoca on August 8th, 1979. The story behind these fallen objects is continuously growing with intensity and credibility. The spheres—almost identical in nature—were about “80 centimeters in diameter and ~2 meters in circumference with a hole in one side and a metal skin covering approximately one-half inch thickness…The spheres weighed about six kilograms with half-inch thick skin and the outside metal was similar to copper with dark and light spots …the plants near the objects were burned.” First hand witnesses mentioned in the official documentation of this incident include Colonel Ariel Coca, Campesino Gonzalo Menacho Viveras, and Nathaniel Mendez Hurtado. Most of the mystery associated with these incidents is in the practically impossible landing of these objects. The two objects were reported to be on fire, made a loud whistling sound and then exploded. However, “in the area where they’ve been found, there were no signs of the impact and it looks as though the spheres landed smoothly.” How did the spheres negotiate a smooth landing? Certainly they are not terrestrial space debris. More mysterious yet, is the presence of a “silent aircraft” with three lights that appeared later the same evening, hovering above the explosion area. What was the craft doing? Who contracted it to be there and why? Was it an extraterrestrial craft or man-made? The incidents’ association with project MOON DUST intensifies these questions; what was the level of involvement of MOON DUST personnel and what did they hope to gain or hide in Bolivia? Where are the spheres today?

IAB 14th Meeting Intelligence Advisory Board, 14th Meeting, 17 July 1947 (20k)
From Record Group 353, Entry 411-413 Box 96 Interdepartmental committees comes another smoking gun memo. The Central Intelligence Group (CIG) had an Intelligence Advisory Board IAB, which held its 14th meeting on Thursday, July 17th 1947. The agenda memo shows one blacked out agenda item number three and none of the associated tabs are declassified yet. If you believe that the Roswell event or New Mexico crashes of early July 1947 are real then this was the first official meeting of the IAB and logical the event(s) would have been thoroughly discussed. This document does not preclude that conclusion.
Zimmerman to Twining, Advanced Study Group Zimmerman to Twining, Advanced Study Group, 12 September 1947 (122k)
The Advanced Study Group is a likely area for UFO crashed hardware investigation and the genesis of reverse engineering. General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was then Chief of Staff, established the group in 1947. Cloistered within the Air Materiel Command, it was headed by Don Zimmerman. Zimmerman had the resources, talent, and charter to research the cutting edge of aviation and space.
The contents of the file folder in Record Group 165 at the National Archives are missing, and declassification requests as of March 2001 have not yielded any further information. However, following is a short history of what we do know about the group:
The initial mission of the Advanced Study Group was to develop national security concepts in light of the revolution in warfare brought about by the onset of the atomic age. The Group was elevated to the Joint level with the creation of the Department of Defense, leaving a vacuum within the Army for independent and long-range thinking.
When the Army War College was reestablished in 1950, an Advanced Studies Group was chartered to consider strategy and land power. The Group evolved into the Advanced Studies and Doctrine Division within the faculty of the College. As part of an Army-wide reorganization in 1962, the Division became the U.S. Army Combat Developments Command Institute of Advanced Studies, addressing strategic questions, as well as those of organizing, equipping, and preparing the Army to fight. The 1971, the mission became exclusively strategic, and the Institute received its present name.
Another Army reorganization, in 1973, brought both the U.S. Army War College and the Strategic Studies Institute (SSI) under the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Plans, and SSI became a War College department. More recently, the Institute has developed a dynamic and growing relationship with the Joint Staff, the National Defense University's Institute for National Security Studies, and the Center for Strategic Leadership (including its Peacekeeping Institute) at Carlisle Barracks. SSI continues to provide an analytical capability within the Army to address strategic and other issues to support Army participation in national security policy formulation.
The group was charged with the task of radically rethinking Army doctrines that had been built up over the years and turning up suggestions for future warfare. Zimmerman was chairman. The others were Col. George W. Beeler, who had ranked second in the West Point graduation class of 1933, and Col. George Madison Jones, a paratrooper with a brilliant combat record and a Distinguished Service Cross. The group had entree into the highest scientific and military circles in the country and communicated with any other authorities it pleased. All that security permits to be disclosed about the reports is that they had a profound effect on military methods and thinking that have developed since then.
The Advanced Study Group is now known as the Joint Advanced Study Committee of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, with representatives from all three of the armed services. The security lid covers not only their work but also their identity as long as they are members.
Twining AMC Air Materiel Command (AMC) Opinion Concerning "Flying Discs," 23 September 1947 (67k)
Found at the National Archives in Record Group 341 by many researchers, at least a decade ago, this three page opinion is unequivocal statement for the reality of Flying Discs and UFOs. "The phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious." Note that this is a Secret memo and deals with the sighting data alone and makes no direct reference to other data such as crashes. However, the opinion does clearly state "the lack of physical evidence in the shape of crash recovered exhibits which would undeniable prove the existence of the objects." Is this in conflict with the other memos that support crash retrievals? No, not at all. This is a secret perfunctory memo and could be an effective cover story if leaked to Soviet Intelligence. Although the memo was signed by Twining it was coordinated with many others at AMC Col, Moore - Chief of the Aircraft laboratory, DA Dicky - Chief of the Propeller laboratory, General DL Putt - Engineering Division, Col. Minty - Chief Power Plant Laboratory and General Bevtual of T-3. The net result of this memo is that the government has confirmed the validity of the phenomenon and later goes on to establish programs Sign, Grudge, and Bluebook on the Secret level while at the same time developing a Top Secret Majestic program to deal with the super sensitive aspects of dead ET bodies and crash wreckage analysis.
Vandenberg Memo Vandenberg to Army Chief of Staff, 17 December 1947 (20k)
This document, found at the National Archives, RG 341, Entry 174, Box 141, is nearly identical to a leaked document we received, showing the same language in Paragraph 1 but an additional clarifying paragraph has been added which states: "This agreement concerns only decisions on joint range problems and does not extend into command and administration matters at Alamogordo Air Base." It is logical to believe that either Vandenberg or the Army Chief of Staff upon seeing or reviewing the first memo might say "we need to clarify this so that no one misconstrues our intent and screws up the basic functions of Alamogordo Air Base."
U.S.A.F. Memo U.S.A.F. Memo Regarding Swedish Air Intelligence Service, 4 November 1948 (48k)
This National Archives declassified Top Secret memo dated 4 Nov 1948 clearly establishes that the U.S.A.F. is "concerned by the recurring reports of flying saucers...one was observed hovering over Neuibiberg Air Base for about thirty minutes." The memo goes on to discuss a visit with Swedish Air Intelligence Service, the Swedes said that "reliable and fully technically qualified people have reached the conclusion that these phenomenon are obviously the result of a high technical skill which cannot be credited to any presently known culture on earth."
Air Intelligence Report Air Intelligence Report #100-203-79: Analysis of Flying Object Incidents in the U.S., 10 December 1948 (3 MB*)
*please note this file may take up to 30 min. to download on a slow connection
This formally TOP SECRET report on the "Analysis of Flying Object Incidents in the U.S." dated 10 December 1948 was declassified in March 1985. The handwritten memo routing slip states — "T.S. Control Note: All published copies of this document have been ordered destroyed. This document for record purposes only not to be disseminated."
The twenty-three page report of which only sixteen pages are available is divided into four appendixes of which, Appendix D, "Flying Wing Type Aircraft," is missing. The problem the report examines is the "patterns of tactics of flying saucers and to develop conclusions as to the possibility of existence." Under possible origins of the unusual flying objects the report states: "It is evident from the performance characteristics attributed to the unidentified objects at this time that if they are foreign, they involve efficiencies of performance which have not been realized in any operational airborne device in this country. It would, therefore, be a mistake to analyze the technical aspects of the situation within the limits of our own knowledge of practical developments." Although an interesting early classified report, the authors were seemingly not given access to the real evidence of the New Mexico incidents and confined their discussion to lights in the sky and radar-visual cases, many with highly credible witnesses.
R&D Board Physical Sciences Research and Development Board: Committee on Basic Physical Sciences, 28 January 1949 (177k)
This declassified memo from National Archives Records Administration (NARA), by Clyde E. Williams dated 28 January 1949, discusses the program planning for metallurgical research and development. What is interesting is their focus on magnetic materials, high heat resistant ceramics, and metals/alloys with increased strength-weight ratios. This effort, although a logical extension of normal engineering processes, is the likely place were unusual materials from the New Mexico crash events of 1947 would have been analyzed and discussed. Of all the technology recovered in 1947 and earlier, the most basic from our physics understanding at the time would be the materials. It would be nearly impossible at that time to make any progress in reverse engineering neutronic engines, lasers, or fiber optics. However, the saucer skin might have been an easier target for investigation. Further research into this committee and associated panels may provide stronger links to the UFO reserve engineering efforts.
USAF Object Report White Sands Object Report, 27 April 1949 (180k)
In our on-going research of the 1st Annual Report, we have located three pages of official documentation that confirm the data contained in Annex C, Entry 10 of the report. The relevant section of the 1st Annual Report reads thus:
On 24 April 1949, engineers and technicians from the White Sands Proving Ground observed a elliptically-shaped object moving in an eastward course at very high altitude. The object was discovered while tracking a Skyhook balloon through a theodolite. The object appeared whitish in color and pale yellow at the tale end. The object was estimated to be two-and-a-half times as long as it was wide. It was difficult to see any structure of the object as it was moving at a very high speed. The object was observed through a theodolite for approximately one minute before disappearing in a steep climb. The object was estimated to be traveling at an altitude of over 60 miles.
The three pages of documentation available here on this case were found in the official UFO records of the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations at the National Archives and Records Administration, Maryland. They are: (a) a 1-page report on the case and (b) a 2-page witness statement attesting to the reality of the event.

Declassified on July 23, 1997, Project Grudge was originally released in August of 1949 as a SECRET Technical Report (NO 102-AC 49/15-100) by the headquarters of the Air Materiel Command, Wright Patterson AFB, Dayton Ohio. Approved by Lt. Col. Hemstreet and Col. Watson, it is 406 pages long and covers a large number of UFO sightings along with investigation analysis, conclusions, and supplementary reports. Overall, it is just the basic background work on pedestrian UFO sightings by many credible military witnesses. No discussion of crashes, alien bodies, or the other TOP SECRET material found in more classified reports — just the way you would expect it.
See the "Official UFO Investigations" section for a further discussion of Project Grudge.
Blount-Evans Blount–Evans and Evans to Blount memos, 10 March 1950 (173k)
Found at the National Archives in Record Group 341, Entry 44, Box 127 this pair of memo's and routing slip show clear linkage between MIT's Department of Physics (Dr. Robley Evans) and Lt. Col. Robert H. Blount (Medical Corps), Chief, Medical Research Division part of the Office of the Surgeon General. Discussed is a RESTRICTED Psychological Analysis of Reports Unidentified Aerial Objects (UAO) prepared by the Aero Medical Laboratory at Wright Field and a new TOP SECRET report that is in the process of being published (March 1950). However, the most stunning aspect of these letters is a reference to "one of these so called flying saucers crashed in Mexico; however, the details are somewhat bizarre at this moment."
Joint Logistic Plan for MAJESTIC Joint Logistic Plan for "MAJESTIC", 25 September 1952 (290k)
Three interrelated TOP SECRET Security Information memos were found in Record Group 218 — Joint Chiefs of Staff and titled: "Joint Logistic Plan for MAJESTIC." Declassified in May 1976, before the first Majestic or MJ-12 documents related to UFOs ever surfaced publicly, the memos are dated September and October of 1952. The documents provide for a Joint Logistic Plan for MAJESTIC. The document states: "The following plans in support of MAJESTIC are now under preparation: A psychological warfare plan, an unconventional warfare plan, cover and deception plans, a civil affairs/military government plan, a command plan, a logistic plan, transportation guidance, to be included in the logistic plan, a map and chart plan and a communications plan." Given the worldwide nature of UFOs and their priceless value if recovered, it is imperative that the J.C.S. would have a logistic plan to recover crashed saucers and pack them back to the U.S. In April of 1954 we see the more official Top Secret MAJIC Eyes Only Special Operations Manual (SOM1-01) as a more complete example of this recovery effort. This report by the Joint Logistics Plans Committee, although primarily a war plan, is clearly capable of supporting crash retrieval operations for UFOs.

Cutler to Twining Memo Cutler to Twining Memo, 14 July 1954 (136k)
Discovered in National Archives Record Group 341, Headquarters of the U.S. Air Force in box 189 by William Moore and Jamie Shandera and later photocopied by archivist Ed Reese, it is a carbon in original form. It is original onionskin paper with FOX watermark appropriate for the era. The short memo notes a subject of NSC/MJ-12 Special Studies Project but does not explain what that is. Now we have clear evidence that there was a MJ-12 project and that both General Twining, President Eisenhower and Robert Cutler knew about it.


Memo to George Marshall Memo to George Marshall from FDR, 27 February 1942 (49k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This is the memo that links the UFO crashes with the Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942, since it occurred only three days earlier. It alludes to "atomic secrets learned from study of celestial devices" and authorizes "Dr. Bush to proceed with the project without further delay." The reference to "this new wonder" is, to our knowledge, a unique phrase for the time. The writing of Source S-2 shows at the bottom of the page. Authenticity, for a retyped memo like this, is nearly hopeless to prove in court. Format details might be of some help if they are consistent with the style of the time.
Marshall to FDR George C. Marshall to Franklin D. Roosevelt, 5 March 1942 (89k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
On March 5, 1942, George C. Marshall writes a top-secret memo to the President, which states: "regarding the air raid over Los Angeles it was learned by Army G2 that Rear Admiral Anderson… recovered an unidentified airplane off the coast of California… with no bearing on conventional explanation... This Headquarters has come to the determination that the mystery airplanes are in fact not earthly and according to secret intelligence sources they are in all probability of interplanetary origin." Marshall goes on to state: "As a consequence I have issued orders to Army G2 that a special intelligence unit be created to further investigate the phenomenon and report any significant connection between recent incidents and those collected by the director the office of Coordinator of Information." The memo bears correct Office of Chief of Staff (OCS) file numbers and has "Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit" (IPU) typed on it at a later time by a different typewriter. It is logical to believe that this is the order that sets up the IPU.
FDR memo Franklin D. Roosevelt Memo on Non-Terrestrial Science and Technology, 22 February 1944 (117k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
On February 22, 1944 Franklin D. Roosevelt writes a DOUBLE TOP SECRET memo on White House stationary for "The special committee on non-terrestrial science and technology." Both the title and the content clearly allude to extraterrestrial life, the former using the word "non-terrestrial" and the latter talks about "coming to grips with the reality that our planet is not the only one harboring intelligent life the universe." Remarkably, the last four words are exactly the title of Sagan's book co-authored with the Soviet scientist Shklovsky. Clearly the situation was that we had recovered at least one craft by then, probably the Cape Girardeau crash of 1941, and came to realize the wealth of technology that lay there for the pickings. Apparently the "Special Committee on Non-terrestrial Science and Technology" had been working some time in order to define a clear action. Dr. Bush had presumably presented a proposal from the Committee for an aggressive separate program to apply "non-terrestrial know how" to the war effort, but FDR thought that it would threaten the atomic bomb program. Thus, he carefully avoids saying "no," but says that we will "take every advantage of such wonders that have come to us" after we have won the war. Very gracious letter. The classification "double top secret" was a legitimate one. We are currently (May 2000) requesting copies of similar correspondence from the Roosevelt Library for format and typography comparison. The signature, although not a strong discriminant, is consistent with other authentic signatures.
Oppenheimer Einstein Draft Oppenheimer-Einstein Draft, June 1947 (494k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This six-page document titled, "Relationships with Inhabitants of Celestial Bodies", is the first document to use the phrase Extraterrestrial Biological Entities, or EBEs. It says the presence of unidentified spacecraft is accepted as de facto by the military - and this is dated June 1947. It deals with the subjects that you would expect competent scientists to deal with - i.e., where do they come from, what does the law say about it, what should we do in the event of colonization and/or integration of peoples, and why are they here? The document suggests that in the event that EBE's desire to settle here on earth there will be "profound change in traditional concepts" of law and the possible need for a new "Law Among Planetary Peoples." There is also propositions concerning the necessary creation of a "Cosmic International law" that would protect the rights of all celestial states to lay claim on otherwise unclaimed solar territories. Finally, the document addresses the presence of celestial astroplanes in our atmosphere as a result of actions of military experiments with fission and fusion devices of warfare. The authors of this document encourage consideration of our potential future situation and safety due to our present and past actions in space. How can we avoid a perilous fate?
Eisenhower to Ireland Memo General Eisenhower Memo to Col. K. W. Ireland, 30 June 1947 (34k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
In this one-page unclassified memo dated 30 June 1947, Eisenhower orders Col. K. W. Ireland to take good care of Archbishop Francis J. Spellman on his tour through New Mexico. What seems unusual is President Truman's personal involvement in this matter. The memo states: "By personal direction of the President of the United States, Archbishop Francis J. Spellman in his capacity as Military Vicar of the Armed Forces of the Army, Army Air Forces and the Navy, is making a tour of military bases in New Mexico, afterwards is making a trip over the routes of the Air Transport Command." It is strange that this is a classified trip, as evidenced by the following statement: "General Webster has assured me that the Archbishop will have complete security at all times and that his presence at any air field will not be disclosed as his flight schedule is considered classified by order of AC/AS General Vandenberg."
IPU Field Order Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit Field Order, 4 July 1947 (43k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This one page order directs the officer in charge (OIC) to take a counter intelligence team to the UFO crash site and report to the G2 (intelligence) at Condron Field, New Mexico, which, of course, is Roswell. OIC is to take along a non-commissioned OIC, an aeronautical engineer, a scientist, a security officer and a medical doctor, and to provide a report by the 28th of July.
Bush letter to Truman Vannevar Bush Letter to President Truman, 5 July 1947 (206k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
On July 5, 1947, possibly as a result of the New Mexico events, Vannevar Bush writes a memo to Truman recapping the status of the earlier investigations. As an apparent follow up by FDR to Bush, FDR wrote another letter (which we don't have) in April 1944 requesting recommendations on four specific points. This letter is Bush's answer. It is presumed that the Top Secret/Eyes Only Operation Majestic-12 classification was added at a later date. The letter also shows an "OK" and a Harry Truman signature. This letter is stamped with the known authentic "original" stamp, and was probably produced by a typewriter because of the uniformity of letter spacing. We expect to show, of course, that this format was commonly used by OSRD typewriters of the era. Bush restates the FDR questions for Truman's benefit, mentions the assistance of distinguished committees, alludes to the "many meetings since the events of this summer," transmits the full reports as appendices, and proposes a "single mechanism for implementing the recommendations of the several committees." Could this be one hugely classified program called "Majestic Twelve" at the end of the summer? The date of the letter, 5 July, was, of course, coincident with the recoveries going on in New Mexico at that very time. Harry Truman's "OK" may have been prophetic.
Directive to Twining by Eisenhower Directive to General Twining by Eisenhower, 8 July 1947 (86k) Authenticity Meter: Medium Level
On the 8th of July, Eisenhower got around to signing the authorization for General Nathan Twining, the head of the Air Materiel Command, to go to White Sands to "...make an appraisal of the reported unidentified objects being kept there." With a team of experts, technicians, scientists and assistants, Twining was directed to not only appraise the unidentified object, but also to deal with the military, political, and psychological situation surrounding its existence in New Mexico.
Directive to Twining by President Truman Directive to General Twining by President Truman, 9 July 1947 (324k) Authenticity Meter: Medium Level
On the 9th of July, Harry Truman signed a virtually identical letter authorizing Twining to re-visit White Sands to make another appraisal of the object being kept. It was desired that he "proceed with detachment from any opinions or feelings expressed by personnel involved which do not conform to sound reasoning with regard to possible outcome". Someone apparently thought it was so important that the Commander-in-Chief put his name on the spot without "passing the buck." Alternatively, Ike himself may have requested a "back-up" memo.
Air Accident Report by Twining to Headquarters, 16 July 1947 (570k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This three page bureaucratic report provides the first glimpses of Lt. General Nathan F. Twinning's Air Accident Report originally published in Leonard Stringfield's (now deceased) Status Report VII, in 1994. Twining apparently describes in first order detail the inside of a "flying disc", everything from the typewriter-like keys that control the propulsion system to a thirty-five foot doughnut shaped one-inch tube inside the craft filled with a clear substance and a coil of copper-like material. Twining, engineers from Engineering Division T-3, scientific personnel from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and other educated experts report that the object was not manufactured by the US, Germany, or Russia for a variety of reasons including; lack of any known design resemblance, lack of external propulsion system and power plant, and the lack of Identifying markings and/or numbers. The experts theorized about how the craft is powered, how it moves, and how and where it is controlled from, but there is no real knowledge beyond the theories. The inability for the experts to prove the object to be made in any of the advanced technological societies on earth is intriguing and thought provoking. The significance and consistency of the technical content has not been evaluated, although it is clear that the writing is consistent with 1947 state of the art, not modern.

Meteorological R & D Memo Lt. Gen. Nathan Twining to Curtis LeMay: Meteorological R & D Memo, 18 July 1947 (403k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This two page memo from Lt General Nathan Twining to Curtis LeMay activates a new laboratory to conduct meteorological research and development and upper air research with the Electronics Subdivision of the Engineering Division of the AMC. It states in part, "In view of the close relationship and interdependence of research in meteorology and research in electromagnetic compressional wave propagation, action is being taken to reorganize the present Applied Propagation Laboratory of Watson laboratories in the Atmospheric Laboratory, and expand its functions to include research and development in meteorology and related geophysical fields." Later the memo goes on to state that "funds requested for F.Y. 1949 Project 680-11, Atmospheric Research and applied scientific research of the upper atmosphere, a total sum of $6,000,000 has been specified…" What a huge sum of money in 1949 to study the "upper atmosphere;" a more logical interpretation is that we are analyzing flying saucers, their technology, why they are here, and what are we going to do about it.
Counter Intelligence Corps/IPU Report Counter Intelligence Corps/Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit Report, 22 July 1947 (415k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This seven page document by the Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit begins by saying "...the extraordinary recovery of fallen airborne objects in the State of New Mexico between 4 July and 6 July 1947." That's the subject, and it goes on to state what the coordinates are, and other fascinating details of the recovery operations and discoveries. The most interesting being the discovery and basic detailed appearance of several bodies that were taken to the hospital at Roswell AAF and other near by hospitals (listed, but not disclosed for security reasons). The conclusion arrived at by the team of experts was unclear because of the limitations of contemporary science and appropriate budgets for future investigation, but leans to the possibility of a very well orchestrated Hoax by US societal outsiders or that "our country has played host to beings from another planet."

This one page memo discusses the control of Restricted Data, which was used for both atomic activities and alien activities stemming from the New Mexico events. Cantwheel, the alleged source of much of these new documents, typed on the bottom of the document, "SAC wanted to keep certain AAF personnel from accessing the out-going messages from Roswell AAF to SAC headquarters that would identify AAF personnel responsible for the transport of classified material to Wright Field, and the personnel who were responsible for disposition of the wreckage and bodies found near Socorro and Corona, New Mexico."
Flying Saucer Analytical Report Flying Saucer Analytical Report, 2 September 1947 (90k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This two-page Top Secret MAJIC Eyes Only report to General C. P. Cabell and commanding General of the Air Materiel Command from the Research and Development Laboratory is dated 2 September 1947. It provides a credible glimpse into the problems that faced the first analytical team to examine real crashed extraterrestrial hardware. Here are some quotes: "some nation has reached a stage of flight development in which the present ideas are entirely obsolete" and "the absence of riveting and surface over-lapping indicates a "'simplistic' concept that confronts our technology to match the "'careful and well-considered compromises in respect to weight, aerodynamic refinement and design.'" A general description of the flying saucer craft is presented including a host of historically accurate AISI metallurgical tests. The research team did have success in identifying some control surfaces and exhaust ports and concluded the spherical reactor (hydrogen isotope type) was connected to propulsion motors.
Hillenkoetter memo to JIC Hillenkoetter Memo to Joint Intelligence Committee, 19 September 1947 (324k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
The title of this document is "Memorandum for the Military Assessment of the Joint Intelligence Committee." And for those of you paying special attention, you'll notice that the acronym is MAJIC, which in fact turned out to be the code word selected. The four paragraphs say we need a classified intelligence project; we recovered one craft, captured one. It says no coordinated scientific examination is possible until we get a clear directive from the president. It also says Wright Field has a new biological laboratory, the Joint Research and Development Board and the FBI, MI5, MI6 are helping.

*please note this file may take up to 20 min. to download on a slow connection
"No one, without express permission from the President, may disseminate the information contained in this report or communicate it to any unauthorized person not possessing MAJIC SECURITY CLEARANCE." The White Hot report is a 19-page document, dated 19 September 1947 and signed by an appropriate cadre of military leaders on 24 September 1947. Several accounts of individual pilots were reported in 1947 with varying details that make each encounter a unique piece in a puzzle of phenomenon. In this particular year, sightings were reported "not only in the United States, but also in Sweden, Germany, Holland, Paraguay, Scandinavia, Greece, and by ships at sea." Studied by classified teams of experts, many interesting and provocative details were recorded in this report of unidentifiable crash remains. The document is broken down into various sections that address concerns specifically: Preliminary Intelligence Estimate, Technical Evaluation, Scientific Probabilities, Political Considerations, and National Security Structure. In the preliminary estimate, experts of the AMC and ONR speculate that "the unidentified lenticular-shaped aerodyne…lacking conventional wing, fuselage, nacelle, control, and fuel systems" is not only foreign to United States technology, but is also unlikely to be of Russian origin, or for that matter, unlikely to have been designed to operate within the earth's atmosphere. Several bodies were discovered along with the material of the crash, their existence and death just as mysterious as the cause of the crash itself. More interesting than these basic facts is the evidence that suggests "a symbionic relationship between operator and the functions of the aerodyne's operation." This particular leaked governmental document has a plethora of factual information linked to the retrieval and appraisal of the evidence collected from the recovered exhibits that "AMC, ASP, NEAP, ACE, ONR, NACKA, JED, RAND, USAF, SAG, and MIT, are deemed extraterrestrial in nature." The White Hot report not only covers the factual evidence of the retrieval, but also sheds light on a number of conceptual concerns surrounding politics, National Security, nuclear weaponry, and the reasons behind keeping knowledge of this nature out of the public's grasp indefinitely. It concludes, for the well being of the public, of course, and the protection of national security, that "the US must be perceived as being the top of the heap, and every effort must be made to insure that there is, and never has been, a threat to the country."
Grow to Twining Malcolm Grow to Lt. Gen. Twining - Aero Medical Laboratory, 20 September 1947 (86k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
Brig. Gen. Malcolm C. Grow writes a two page memo for General Twining describing the preliminary results of the post-mortem examination of the Air Accident Report filed 17 July 1947 (see above). Note the wide-ranging distribution list from people like Dr. Detlev Bronk and Dr. Randolph Lovelace to the AAF Scientific Advisory Group and Intelligence Departments. This perfunctory preliminary report is clear in its references to a UFO: "Collision in full flight with object other than conventional aircraft," "Artifacts collected and assembled indicate that the unidentified aircraft…," "The functions of the instruments found in the cockpit area are unknown at present; so there is no way to determine if the craft was manned or remotely controlled."

A bureaucratic memo with excellent checkable references discusses an Analysis of Factors Contributing to "Pilot-Error" Experiences in Operating Experimental Aircraft Controls written by Lt. Col. Tucker. Tucker and his correct period phone extension, memo format, and writing style have been verified in the National Archives. Tucker was part of the Aero Medical Laboratory, Psychological Branch. It discusses two incidents on 25 March and 4 July 1947 about S-Aircraft (PF) and interactions with symbolic instrumentation with tactile manipulation of flight controls.
Marshall to The President Secretary of State Marshall, Memo to The President, 24 September 1947 (55k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
Marshall writes a memo to the President concerning the "Presentation of Report to the President Re; ULAT" dated September 24, 1947 that expresses concern about the timing of the internal release of this report. "It would be better to discuss the report during the meeting (National Security Council). This would give the members a better picture of the situation rather than having it released piecemeal." Marshall goes on to say, "I further suggest that Twining present the findings of the Majestic-12 briefing to be given be the Director of Central Intelligence with a detailed showing of visual as well as written materials." File references, format, and signatures suggest authenticity.

So, five days later, President Truman, in that busy week of the 24th of September, 1947, decided that he would sign this document, which says, "Hereafter this matter shall be referred to only as Operation Majestic Twelve." Unfortunately, researcher Stanton Friedman found another memo, with a nearly identical signature in this same week signed by Truman to Dr. Bush. How can that be? See the Authentication section for a possible answer.

This one page unclassified memo dated 25 September 1947 is directed to General Spaatz. It voices concern about the quality of the briefing given that day and wants the presentation package improved for the National Security Council (NSC) meeting the following day. Cantwheel's comments typed in capital letters at the bottom sum up the sentiment, "The Secretary of Defense was unhappy with briefing of the AMC and R&D briefing officers and Symington wanted Bush and Twining to meet with Truman before NSC meeting on the 26th so that a more concise and explainable report of the discovery would be made."
Marshall to President Truman Secretary of State Marshall to President Truman, 25 September 1947 (116k) Authenticity Meter: Medium Level
This memo was signed top secret, MAJIC eyes only. It says "cryptographic (misspelled in original) security does not apply," thereby revealing that this subject would normally be encrypted, but to expedite it they did not. The memo says that no indication of its contents is to be divulged to the public, referring to Twinning's White Hot report discussed earlier. So this is Marshall telling Humelsine, the secretary to President Truman, to make sure that Truman realizes that he's not going to let anything out to the public, and even suggests a "cover story." The similarity of the handwriting to that in other documents poses an authentication challenge.

General Nathan Twining writes to the President on 26 September 1947 and respectfully submits his report on Flying Saucers. This is "In accordance with your instructions, advisors from State, Treasury, War, and Navy departments assisted me in a two month exploratory mission concerning the reality of other-world visitation." The memo is impressive for its authentic looking pentagon Joint Chiefs of Staff and Combined Chiefs of Staff filing references along with clear older sized paper markings.

On 27 September 1947 George C. Marshall writes to his Executive secretary Carl Humelsine about the tragic consequences if the present rumors about New Mexico events are disclosed to the public. Humelsine is resistant to sign an agreement to remain quiet concerning these events because he has already heard about them through other sources. The memo states in part, "…(a) you are unwilling to commit yourself to any agreement regarding not communicating its contents to any other person in view of the fact that you felt you already knew certain of the things probably referred to in the memo, as suggested to you by seeing the security reference ‘MAJIC' and b) you could not feel that such a letter as this could have been addressed to you without the knowledge of the President…." This ozalid (early carbon duplication) printing process memo is authentic for the era and would be difficult to fake.
Intelligence Estimate "Unidentified Aircraft Sightings Over the United States," Top Secret Eyes Only Intelligence Estimate, 30 September 1947 (844k) Authenticity Meter: Medium Level
This presidential briefing document is an intelligence estimate dated September 30, 1947 titled "Unidentified Aircraft Sighting Over the United States." Prepared by the Special Studies and Evaluation State-War-Navy Coordinating Committee and the Office of National Estimates Central Intelligence Agency. It references both a TS Control No. 7300405, NSA authority and a NSCID (National Security Council Intelligence Directive) 6 Authority, NIA Directive.
The six page Top Secret Eyes Only covers essential elements of information, however, no discussion of wreckage, alien bodies etc., after all the briefing is about unidentified aircraft sightings. Main headings are: estimates of Soviet capabilities, domestic capabilities, estimate of the situation, estimates of interplanetary capabilities, and conclusions. The estimate of the situation and interplanetary capabilities make for very interesting reading.
The document is retyped and Source S-2 has handwritten at the bottom this is the best version available. It is allegedly annotated by Harry Truman "I want the Director of NSA to have this for future reference. October 24, 1952"

Vandenberg to Army Chief of Staff General Vandenberg to Chief of Staff, 17 December 1947 (14k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This memo from Vandenberg to the Army Chief of Staff does not clearly relate to UFOs. However, it is clear that the decision process at White Sands and Alamogordo was in turmoil and that clarification was needed. Possibly as a result of the UFO wreckage being stored there and different access requests and priorities. The addition of a senior Army Ordnance Officer being permanently assigned to work with the joint committee for range coordination was the resolution to improve local decision making. What could be so important that would involve top generals to clarify decision making? The leaked version (page 1), is nearly identical to a document we found at the National Archives, RG 341, Entry 174, Box 141 (page 2), showing the same language in Paragraph 1 but an additional clarifying paragraph has been added which states: "This agreement concerns only decisions on joint range problems and does not extend into command and administration matters at Alamogordo Air Base." It is possible that either Vandenberg or the Army Chief of Staff upon seeing or reviewing the first memo might say "we need to clarify this so that no one misconstrues our intent and screws up the basic functions of Alamogordo Air Base."


Hillenkoetter to Truman: Majic Hillenkoetter to Truman: Majic Black Book Summaries, 11 February 1948 (213k) Authenticity Meter: Medium Level
On 11 February 1948, Hillenkoetter (DCI) writes a Top Secret Majic Eyes Only memorandum to the President Truman about the Majic Black Book summaries. It states, “…For some time, the last two months in particular, I have had our intelligence liaison organization concentrating on the possible presentation on ‘Majic' for my use as well as for the other officials concerned, particularly yourself. A highly specialized organization is now engaged in the very necessary process of separating the wheat from the chaff and correlating the items with past information in order that I may be able to quickly and intelligently evaluate the importance of the product.” This memo with 092447 classified executive order (EO) stamp and other marginalia looks to be authentic, and our forensic linguistics resources hopefully will confirm Hillenkoetter authorship.

This cover page defines the members of panel of experts responsible for preparing the report on Majestic. They had a very impressive panel - Bush, McDonald, Vandenberg - all these people you would have expected. The odd one is Major Luther D. Miller, Chief of Chaplains. Additionally, notice the Collection Directive number A-1762.1-J1. This file number also appears on other declassified documents that are related to UFOs. The absence of a date and the reference to CIA SI 28-55 suggests the possibility of evidence of deliberate altering for some purpose, such as psychological warfare.

Biological Weapons Korea Communist Propaganda Charging United States with the Use of BW in Korea, 20 August 1951 (350k) Authenticity Meter: High Level
This seven page Secret document appears to be declassified in 1985 and released; it has similar release markings to the JOIA 1412 memo citing "CIA TOP SECRET MJ-12" that the CIA could not find through the FOIA process in 1999. This document discusses propaganda as it relates to the alleged use of biological weapons (BW) by the U.S. in Korea. The thirteen point information report is rich with specifics and history, of particular note is general sophistication of the propaganda and spin on both sides. This relates to the MAJESTIC program only weakly, since we believe psychological warfare will in the end be only a minor component of UFO military document history. The CIA declassified this in 2000.

This draft is not dated, but from dates mentioned in the document (latest is May 1951) we believe that it was written in the summer of 1952, on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the July '47 crashes. It contains the nature of the investigation, the panel's contribution to the TOP SECRET MAJESTIC DOCUMENTS, a review of the Military Assessment, and various problems in relation to technology, Nuclear Weapons development, Biological Warfare Programs, Genetic and Pharmaceutical Development Programs, New Material Development, Planned Future Rocket Development, Nuclear Propulsion Development, Intelligence Gathering and Analysis, Foreign Policy and National Security, Domestic and Constitutional Issues, social, religious, and Scientific Reaction, Cold War development, and Government Policy of Control and Denial. Lots of sensational information is contained in the seventeen pages of single-spaced, specific, checkable details. It will take several man-years to validate every phrase and claim. The initial checks we have performed provide no clear indication of fakery at all. See the authentication sections for a discussion of subtle issues here.
Truman to Secretary of Defense Truman to Secretary of Defense, 24 October 1952 (802k) Authenticity Meter: Medium Level
This eight page memo by President Truman to the Secretary of State and Defense is about "Communications Intelligence Activities." In short, it establishes the NSA (National Security Administration). What is interesting is that the same Top Secret Control Number of 7300405 is used on another questioned document of the same era, the Truman Presidential Briefing, discussing unidentified aircraft sightings over the United States. Dated October 24, 1952.

This document appears to be part of one of the annual reports of MAJESTIC although the numbering does not correspond to the annual report which can be downloaded in its entire draft form. Particularly noteworthy is the handwritten references to "put in Angelton's 'Yellow' files - J1" and "Project White Hot." The text contains some fascinating details such as "The untimely death of Secretary Forrestal was deemed necessary and regrettable." From a historical view the document says that because of Twining's report (White Hot) President Truman was compelled to sign the National Security Act of 1947.
Eisenhower Briefing Document Eisenhower Briefing Document, 18 November 1952 (516k) Authenticity Meter: High Level
This "NATIONAL SECURITY INFORMATION" is classified "TOP SECRET". After identifying the 12 Majestic members, it states that the Kenneth Arnold sighting had caused near hysteria; noted that there was a secret recovery operation starting on 07 July, 1947; four dead bodies; wreckage moved to several locations. It showed Harry Truman's top-secret memo as Appendix A on page 008 setting up the program. Stan Friedman is a notable expert on this document. Some statements agree and some do not agree with statements in other documents. This does not necessarily imply fakery, because of heavy compartmentalization of the facts. "Implications for the National Security are of continuing importance in that the motives and ultimate intentions of these visitors remain completely unknown."

This two-page Secret memorandum from President Dwight D. Eisenhower to the Director of Central Intelligence is dated 4 November 1953. The document deals with Eisenhower's comments on an "MJTWELVE Operations Plan of June 16, 1953 on the subject of instructions for the expenditures of the National UFO Intelligence Program, and more specifically, the Special Operations instructions to be issued to Unified and Specific Major Commands and Commanders." Eisenhower (a) expresses concern about inflaming the UFO situation with the Soviets; (b) reiterates that both the CIA and the NSA had leading roles to play in the UFO program; and (c) confirms that both Robert Oppenheimer and Albert Einstein (described as the director of Project JEHOVAH) were involved in research relating to UFO physics.

This 32-page manual shows the crafts as being disk-shaped, cigar-shaped, triangular or ice cream cone shaped. Entities are of two types - EBEs (extraterrestrial Biological Entities), both described in some detail. They're not known to terrestrial science. It says that security is of massive importance. One of the principal objectives is to keep the public in the dark, a primary focus of this document. In chapter 4, titled "Receiving and Handling", this document gives crating and uncrating instructions on where you send the parts, or the bodies, and other materials, how you protect the biological materials and the non-biological materials differently, and how you regularly do this on foreign soil - it has different packing instructions for foreign soil shipments from those of the Continental U.S. It provides instructions for good UFOB reporting - and UFOB was the label that was being used at that time by the Air Force. For a couple of years they used that label instead of UFO. The last page is very impressive. The references are genuine on page 28; you can go to the Archives and get a 1954 document and get the same reference numbers, the same reference titles, word for word, comma for comma.

Perhaps the most stunning physical evidence for the existence of the TOP SECRET/MAJIC program is this original 339 page manuscript about flying saucers. Written by Vernon Bowen, the original is on watermarked paper with red TOP SECRET/MAJIC stampings on some of the chapters. Most of the rest of the document is marked CONFIDENTIAL. Original handwritten marginalia shows linkages to Project White Hot, Twining, Vannevar Bush, Moon Dust, and Donald Menzel. A well written snapshot of the public history of flying saucers from 1947 to 1954. Bowen was personally well-connected to many top people.

John F. Kennedy to Director, CIA John F. Kennedy to Director, CIA, June 1961 (22k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This terse memo to the DCI asks for an update on the psychological warfare plans related to MJ-12. The Kennedy signature looks genuine, but he often used an autopen so that is not an important authentication point. There seems to be no reason to doubt that this is a valid memo. If valid, it clearly indicates that there was an MJ-12 continuing as of 1962, the CIA knew about it, and it was involved in psychological warfare.

This one-page top-secret operations review concerning the MJ-12 project is written by Allen W. Dulles. Dated 5 November 1961 and referencing Presidential National Security Memorandum of June 28, 1961, the document describes the situation as: "the overall effectiveness about the actual Soviet response and alert status is not documented to the point where U.S. intelligence can provide a true picture of how Soviet air defenses perceive unidentified flying objects." It goes on to state: " …80% of the sighting reports investigated by the Air Force's project Blue Book were explainable and posed no immediate threat to national security. The remaining cases have been classified for security reasons and are under review. While the possibility remains true U.F.O. cases are of non-terrestrial origin, U.S. Intelligence is of the opinion that they do not constitute a physical threat to national defense. For reasons of security, I cannot divulge pertinent data on some of the more sensitive aspects of MJ-12 activities, which have been deemed properly classified under the 1954 Atomic Energy Act."

This memo, written in early 1962 and allegedly signed by President Kennedy, was received from Source S-1 on 21 July 2000; it clarifies the authority of the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) regarding the collection of UFO intelligence. It states in part: "as the Government's principal intelligence officer, you will assure the proper coordination, correlation, and evaluation of intelligence from all sources and its prompt dissemination to me and to other recipients as appropriate." It is clear that the DCI is responsible for coordinating with all U.S. agencies engaged in foreign intelligence activities, and this would include UFOs and their related government investigation organizations. Hence, the DCI would have been intimately involved with Majestic and its related projects.

The authenticity of this document has been studied by several others including Milo Speriglio and Tim Cooper. In this rare version that includes the signature of James J. Angleton (CIA counter intelligence chief) it references 54-12/MJ-12. In light of the large FOIA FBI file on Monroe, a suspicious death, known associations with the JFK and discussion of secret diaries that Monroe kept and yet disappeared, this document could be absolutely authentic.

This letter from former CIA Director Hillenkoetter to Donald Menzel is marked "CIA Copy" in original ink and handwritten "Top Secret" across the document. Of note is the comment from Hillenkoetter about his experience in the NICAP organization, which he was once chairman of, "_I resigned from NICAP about 20 months ago feeling that it had degenerated from an organization honestly trying to find out something about unknowns, into a bickering body about personalities." It is worth noting that Hillenkoetter was congratulating Menzel on the completion of the new book and states "I would say that you have effectively put to rest all surmises about flying saucers being from 'outer space.' You have done a thorough and praiseworthy job." Both are participants to MJ-12, with Hillenkoetter congratulating Menzel on what a great job he did with the disinformation, psychological warfare, and obfuscation of the UFO reality.
John F. Kennedy to CIA John F. Kennedy to CIA, November 1963 (127k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
This memo, when read and re-read, gives the impression that JFK was urging a downgrading of the genuine extraterrestrials (read Unknowns) so that NASA could be better informed to handle their "defensive responsibilities." Even in this top-secret memo, it is fairly unclear what all the subtleties were. However, the handwriting at the bottom, "Angleton has MJ directive" is confirmation that as late as three days before his assassination, there was an MJ program on the books. Whether this is strongly, weakly, or not at all related to his death is impossible to say from the data here.

This is apparently a modern retyped NSA intercept of JFK's "hot line" talking to the Premiere about the UFO problem and its collective national security importance to each country. Statements made about NASA dovetail with other known authentic National Security Action Memorandums (NSAMs) and other earlier leaked documents about partnering with the Soviets on joint space exploration. This document is virtually impossible to verify even if the nomenclature is proper for the era.

The nine-page "burned" memo, stamped TOP SECRET/MJ-12, is named because it was snatched from a fire before being destroyed, which is why it is discolored and disintegrating. Unlike many of the Majestic documents, this one is an original carbon with an Eagle watermark characteristic of government work, but so far forensic laboratories have been unable to trace it. The memo is from the Director of Central Intelligence (MJ-1) to MJ-2, MJ-3… MJ-7, in reference to Project MAJESTIC and JEHOVAH, Project EVIRO, Project PARASITE, and Project PARHELION. Although no dated is given, its content directly suggests the month of September. The year is estimated to be in the early 1960s and is still under investigation.
The purpose is to have the team review a new set of directives and recommend changes that can be agreed on. Of note is the statement "As you must know LANCER [code word for JFK] has made some inquiries regarding our activities which we cannot allow." The eight tabs of directives are fascinating: (A) President's EYES ONLY, (B) "NEED-TO-KNOW", (C) DoD 5200.1, (D) Project BLUE BOOK, (E) Freedom of Information, (F) PSYOP, (G) BW (biological weapons) and (H) Project ENVIRONMENT. Particularly chilling is the Biological Weapons directive, which states: "Designated MJ projects should be held in readiness to perform SPIKE and HOUSE CLEANING operations in major population centers in the event conventional methods are not satisfactory. Specialists from MK-ULTRA and ARTICHOKE are hereby activated to conduct DOMESTIC." Logically, this paragraph refers to UFO retrieval operations. The authenticity of these directives seems beyond question: original onionskin papers, proper forensically verified red ink of the time period, and rare "CI" (counter intelligence) stamps.

This fifteen page (five pages downloadable) Top Secret Majic report on Isotope Thermal Thrusters and Applications by John S. Martinez is clearly over stamped at a later time with security warnings and a period style vertical number scheme of 28710. The contents are normal physics, yet use nuclear power in thermonic reactions to generate significant power for a variety of applications for spacecraft and nuclear rockets. Well referenced with much of the information more publicly understood now in this eclectic field of nuclear propulsion. This area has a rich history of close linkage to UFOs, since it was widely understood even in 1947 that UFOs don't run on kerosene, they must be nuclear. Nuclear Energy for the Propulsion of Aircraft (NEPA) and Advanced Nuclear Power (ANP) were huge military efforts to test the feasibility of nuclear propulsion in airplanes, although the modern day success of these programs is unknown the earlier programs were canceled and not considered successful.

Much of Project Sign has been declassified. Logical military doctrine shows that the very sensitive nature of crashed alien hardware would not only be "pulled from" the traditional lights in the sky and fantastic aerial capabilities of project Sign's scope, but that real crashed hardware would need a lower classification cover story such as Project Sign to help shield the truth from prying Soviet eyes.
Also of extraordinary significance are the markings-actually stampings-on many of the Blue Book related documents including the NICAP Cases discussed above. Stamped with an automated machine top and bottom are the words "TENTATIVE SECRET FORWARD TO MAJCOM."

UFO Sovereignty Over Air Space UFO Sovereignty Over Air Space: A Defense Intelligence Problem, ~1976 (949k) Authenticity Meter: Medium-High Level
     (replica followed by original)
Believed to be written by the Office of Scientific Intelligence in 1976, this seven page photocopied onionskin document is titled UFO Sovereignty Over Air Space: A Defense Intelligence Problem. The document is signed by LCR � the initials of an astronomer attached to the CIA�s Office of Scientific Intelligence in the 1970�s. LCR talks about the way in which UFOs have violated U.S. airspace on numerous occasions; the way in which Top Secret UFO data has been withheld from elected leaders by the CIA; the recovery of a crashed UFO in New Mexico in 1947 by the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project; the fear of a nuclear confrontation with the Soviets being prompted by UFO radar tracks; President John F. Kennedy�s involvement in the UFO controversy; UFOs and the Cuban missile crisis of 1962; and LCR�s initiative to begin reintroducing presidential briefings on the UFO subject. The discussion of organizational slowdowns, denied information and management dilemmas are typical of bureaucracies, irrespective of topic. Such references in the discussion are consistent with a pragmatic working document, not for sensationalism or public melodrama.

This paper is an Executive Briefing for the Director of Central Intelligence titled: Unidentified Flying Object Implication for Nation Security and Human Survival. LCR reveals that between 1946 and 1955 he was tasked with preparing information on UFOs and the U.S. Intelligence community that was published in a 1956 book written by him, published by the CIA and titled Central Intelligence, UFOs, and National Security. It reveals the surprising fact that many secret documents concerning UFO encounters at Los Alamos and the White Sands Missile Range in the period 1944-1949 were destroyed and also reveals how this caused problems in trying to evaluate the true picture from a historical perspective. The paper also touches upon the CIA�s role in espionage and UFO investigations, and LCR�s examination of the CIA�s historical UFO studies.

In this five-page double-spaced memo written for President Reagan�s approval, Dr. Edward Teller clearly shows his familiarity with the UFO subject and its threat to National Security. It opens with a gripping sentence, "I wish to bring to your attention a very real and dangerous situation that threatens not only us, the world, but our very existence as a race." It goes on to state, "No longer can the United States be in the position which it found itself in 1947. This was realized in January 1950 when President Truman made a decision to go ahead with a defense program exceeding in scope and cost of the Manhattan Project." What could this have been? The only logical conclusion is that it was a massive effort to exploit the celestial gifts as FDR recommended in his 24 February 1944 Double Top Secret Memo to the Special Committee on Non-Terrestrial Science and Technology.

Another fascinating paper, titled UFO Technology and the Imbalance of Power, is attributed to Edward Teller and is a five-page photocopy of onionskin paper. It goes into great detail about the nature of official secrecy and the benefits and the hazards of secrecy both in the Cold War and in the present day. Teller proposes that official secrecy surrounding UFOs should be lessened for three prime reasons: (a) to stimulate research in the field of military applications of UFO technology; (b) to promote cooperation between the USA and its allies around the world on the UFO issue; and (c) to inform the U.S. public of "the true state of UFO reality." Teller also proposes that the majority of classified UFO documents should be declassified. In addition, Teller discusses the use of UFO technology integrated into the U.S. military�s remotely piloted vehicle (RPV) program and maintaining an adequate defense against "UFO nuclear weapons."

On January 30, 1996, Thomas Cantwheel wrote a two-page memo, which included a drawing of an unidentified aerodyne found July 5, 1947 south of Socorro, New Mexico by military and civilian members of the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project (AFSWP). The memo begins: �The �loaned� aircraft was acquired in 1945 from the Air Technical Services Command (ATSC, now AEDS, Air Force Systems Command). The �S� aircraft was designed from an aerodyne recovered in 1941 that crashed in southeastern Missouri and the one captured in 1942 in Louisiana. Reconstruction commenced in 1945 with the assistance of German scientists at Wright Field. Propulsion programs tried to duplicate the atomic power plant found in the aerodyne captured in Louisiana and integrated the magnetic drive system developed by Tesla� Efforts to conceal the true nature of flight operations were successful in that the AF devised a cover intelligence project called Blue Book� In 1958, Project UFO and Moon Dust were activated when the USA Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit operations ceased and CIC responsibility for UFO security was transferred to USAFOSI.�

Source S-1 writes a memo entitled Unidentified Flying Objects, the CIA, and Congress. It opens with an interesting story of an interview with President Truman by the FBI and states: �he was asked the embarrassing question did you authorize Operation Majestic 12? To which he replied �I never gave any thought about it after leaving office.� He added, �it was not my intention when I set up the CIA would be injected into strange activities of that sort.� He was upset when the subject was brought up and it was sensed that Mr. Truman was being coy and evasive.�
The paper goes on to discuss congressional surveillance concerning the UFO issue, which came to a head in the Senate in early 1956. �The specific point at issue was whether Congress was to establish a standing Joint Committee on the CIA, similar to the joint Committee on Atomic Energy, to provide a fuller and continuing look at the United States UFO intelligence programs. The CIA�s UFO intelligence budget is concealed within the budgets of various government departments, mainly that of the Defense Department. The average member of Congress has no more knowledge than the average citizen of annual expenditures or of the size and scope CIA UFO operations...
"Ever since CIA was established, the director has been authorized, and in fact, directed to make complete disclosure of CIA UFO activities to special committees in both the Senate and House. The CIA is at times completely responsive to their questions, no matter how sensitive. For example, during the first 12 weeks as DCI Admiral William F. Raborn was called to 17 meetings with these congressional committees. The legislative log for the year 1965 shows that the DCI or his senior (sic) aides met a total of 34 times with four special subcommittees.� Additionally, there are three tabs attached to the paper that discuss arguments in favor of a joint UFO committee and arguments against it.

The memo is hard to summarize because of its varied content, but it discusses the CIA role, UFO/EBE working groups, and historical events like the JFK assassination.




Whitley Strieber's 1989 novel, Majestic, is a fictionalized account and interpretation of the events at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. The book contains the text of a number of "documents" created in the wake of the event � some of which are attributed to the Majestic Twelve group. Listed below a brief summary for each of the documents. There is good evidence that Strieber's assertion that the "documents" were nothing more than fiction created by him (and not leaked to him by insiders) is indeed correct. One example of this can be found in Document 1 that appears in my version of the book on pages 34-44 and that is dated 8 July 1947 and titled National Board of Estimate Intelligence Estimate on Flying Disk Motives. Under the section of the document titled Detailed Analysis, you will see a reference to a case from 1871 that involved a man named William Robert Loosley. In reality, this encounter never happened and the "case" is actually extracted from a fictional story written in 1979 by David Langford. David's story is titled Account of a Meeting With Denizens of Another World. In other words, as this can be verifiably shown to have been written by Langford for a 1979 fiction book, it cannot have appeared in a 1947 U.S. intelligence report.

Document 1 is a National Board of Estimate Intelligence Estimate on Flying Disk Motives. Dated 8 July 1947 and prepared by the Office of Research and Analysis, Central Intelligence Group, the document details the background to the UFO controversy that began in the summer of 1947 with the Kenneth Arnold encounter of 24 June. The report discusses several other cases from 1947 and then turns its attention to a discussion of a potential relationship between "a number of unsolved cases of disappearance and flying disk activity," including the disappearance of a village full of people in Canada in 1930. The document states that, �If these cases of disappearance are indeed related to the flying disks, the conclusion can be drawn that the strangers are interested in us but do not have any regard for us.� In the Recommendations section of the document, it is stated that, "The public should be insulated from any certain knowledge that the disks are real until such time as we have a clear understanding of the nature and motives of their occupants," and that, "�every effort should be made to obtain samples of a flying disk as soon as possible."

Areas recommended for investigation by the Majestic Twelve include: (a) an attempt to establish communications with aliens; (b) the use of propaganda "and maintenance of public ignorance;" (c) regulations governing the recovery of crashed alien craft; (d) the relationship with the Soviets on the UFO problem; (e) the creation of a historical study program to determine the extent of alien activity on Earth prior to 1947; and (f) operations designed to better understand "the nature of alien biology."

Autopsy Report #1 Autopsy Report #1 (352k)
Document 8 is a 7-page report of 14 July 1947 and is classified Top Secret Majic. It details the results of the "autopsy of the body of an apparent alien creature." Having been recovered in a condition of "significant deterioration," it is described as being 44 inches in length and 27 pounds in weight. It reportedly had an "enlarged cranium;" and "showed some evidence of surgical intervention." However, the conclusion of the report is that the body is "a human male fetus that has been subjected to forced maturation without normal gestation," and that it "had been the subject of considerable alteration and modification, some of it obviously surgical."

Autopsy Report #2 Autopsy Report #2 (273k)
Similar in nature to Document 8, this document is also dated 14 July 1947 and concerns the autopsy of another body � 36 inches in length and with a weight of only 8 pounds. The body was described as being "not of a human type." The head is described as round and large; the eyes were almond-shaped; the internal organs are described as being very different to those exhibited by human beings; and the creature reportedly lacked both a respiratory system and stomach. The conclusion states that the body "appears to be a form of creature utilizing elements of both the animal and the vegetable."

Top Secret in classification and dated 13 July 1947, this is a one-page order to "All Operating Commands, Continental US," to engage in hostile action and shoot down any and all "glowing objects;" "flying disks;" or "airships" that might be encountered in US airspace. Concern is expressed about ensuring that the public does not learn of these developments.

This section consists of a series of photographs and explanations that suggest links to MJ-12 personnel. The military photographs are from the National Archives and show in some cases—such as the photo at the left—clear and proud associations of known MJ-12 members, in this case, Dr. Theodore Von Karman, General Donald Putt and Dr. Robert E. Lombard.

McArthur, Chamerlin 1944
General Douglas MacArthur, Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Forces in the Southwest Pacific Area, photographed with some of his landing officers on an island in the Southwest Pacific during the General's visit to American troops, who immediately afterward made their first landing on New Britain, Major Japanese base. Left to right: Major General S. J. Chamberlin, General MacArthur's Operations Officer, Lt. General Walter Kreueger, Commander of the American Sixth Army; General MacArthur; Brig. General E. D. Patrick, Chief of Staff of the Sixth Army; Vice-Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid, Commander of the Allied Naval Forces; and Major General Ennis R. Whitehead, Deputy Commander of the Fifth Air Force. Chamberlin later rose to become the Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2 (Intelligence) in the summer of 1947 and was one of the members of the summer "Mission" resulting in the report on recovered lenticular aerodyne objects of September 1947.

Truman, Spaatz, 1945
Presentation of Colliers Trophy to Gen. Carl Spaatz by President Truman, December 17, 1945. General Spaatz went on to become the first leader of the Army Air Forces. He would have been "in charge" in July 1947.

Truman, Arnold
President Truman presenting the Distinguished Service Medal to Gen. H. H. ("Hap") Arnold. Not only was Arnold well liked, but also he was a very distinguished leader.

Spaatz

National Security Resources Board, Nov. 1947
Initial meeting of the National Security Resources Board at White House, 13 November 1947. James Forrestal, 2nd from left next to President Truman. These men would have been very likely been informed of the July 1947 crashes, and were the ones tasked to make the money available.

JRDB 11 Feb 48
Joint Research and Development Board Meeting, 11 February 1948. Seated left to right are: Major General L. C. Craigie, General Joseph T. McNarney, General Jacob L. Devers, Dr. Vannevar Bush, Chairman of Joint Research and Development Board, Vice Admiral E. W. Mills, Vice Admiral J. D. Price and Lt. General H. S. Arnold. The JRDB implemented the funding for new developments based on new science. In those days, the view was that scientific breakthroughs could make a quick military difference as evidenced by our atomic bomb example.

Spaatz, Vandenberg, Symington, 1948
Taken 2 April 1948 by James Evans, Air Force photographer. General Spaatz turning over the Air Force responsibilities to General Hoyt Vandenberg (right), with Secretary of the Air Force Symington looking on approvingly. Vandenberg was the one who is reported to have "killed" the extraterrestrial explanation for flying saucers.

Symington, Vandenberg, 1948
Secretary of the Air Force Stuart Symington conferring with Gen Hoyt S. Vandenberg, Chief of Staff of the Air Force with the world at their fingertips, on 9 September 1948. Vandenberg is on the panel shown on the first page of the "1st Annual Report."

Vandenberg, otheres, 1948
Taken 4 October 1948 by James Evans, Air Force Photographer. This shows General Hoyt S. Vandenberg conferring over an unknown document, perhaps an organization chart. It appears that the contents of the page have been air-brushed out.

James Forrestal last meeting
Secretary of Defense James Forrestal's last meeting, 25 March 1949. Among those present were: Under Secretary of Navy, W. J. Kenney; Secretary of AF, W. Stuart Symington; Secretary of Army, Kenneth C. Royall; Mr. James Forrestal; General Omar Bradley; Admiral Louis Denfield and General Hoyt S. Vandenberg. Shortly after this photograph Forrestal resigned, and two months later he was murdered, according the one of our documents (Fragment of Annex C).

VonKarman, Putt, Lombard
Dr. Theodore von Karman, Brigadier General Donald L. Putt, and Dr. Albert E. Lombard, Jr., three of the U. S. Air Forces top scientific personnel. Dr. von Karman was chairman of the Scientific Advisory Group, and organization which coordinates the latest scientific thinking with USAF operational planning. General Putt was Director of USAF Research and Development in the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, Material, in Headquarters, USAF, and Dr. Lombard is head of the Research Division under General Putt. Al Lombard went on to become the head of McDonnell Aircraft Company research laboratories and was a personal acquaintance of Dr. Robert M. Wood.

Staff Meeting 20 Aug. 1951
General Staff Meeting at Washington, D. C., 20 August 1951, (left to right) Gen. Emery S. Wetzel, Lt. Gen. Chas. B. Stone, Lt. Gen Thos. D. White, Gen. Nathan F. Twining, Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, Gen. Howard A. Craig, Lt. Gen. Orval R. Cook and Maj. Gen. Donald L. Putt. This is the group of men who established and implemented Air Force Policy.

Spellman, Stearly
Air power and prayer power were the topics of conversation as His Eminence Francis Cardinal Spellman conferred with Maj. Gen. Ralph F. Stearley outside the Okinawa headquarters of the Twentieth Air Force. Military vicar for the armed forces, Cardinal Spellman spent a day talking with combat personnel throughout the island. January 1952. Three of our documents allude to interaction with Spellman. It is certainly reasonable that he would have been "called" to comment on any ET remains. However, references to him do not prove that such an event happened.


Twining, Chief of Staff, 1953
General Nathan F. Twining, left, is congratulated by Hon. Harold E. Talbott (right), Secretary of the Air Force, after being sworn as Air Force Chief of Staff. Looking on are, left to right: General Thomas D. White, Vice Chief of Staff, U. S. Air Force; Colonel K. E. Thiebaud, Air Adjutant General and General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, retiring Chief of Staff. General Twining was sworn in during ceremonies at the Pentagon following the retiring ceremonies for General Vandenberg at Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, DC, 1 July 1953. It is interesting that the reins of leadership were passed to a General who was apparently involved in the UFO crash recoveries.
