Nick Redfern marks the 25th anniversary of the infamous Majestic-12 mystery over at Mysterious Universe. I don’t put much stock in the MJ-12 documents since I had them tested by a computational linguist specializing in authorship attribution studies.

    It does seem like the MJ-12 documents are fakes or mostly fakes; however, I wonder if such a group like it did exist and still exists in some form today. I’ve finally found time to begin reading Richard Dolan’s UFOs and the National Security State. I’m nearly half way into the first volume and already Dolan’s narrative suggests there are higher-ups who have inside knowledge about UFOs. On p. 104 he cites Edward J. Ruppelt’s meeting with a scientist from an unknown agency who apparently predicted the Washington D.C. UFO wave of 1952. Dolan points out that the scientist, and the agency he represented is still unknown today.
    For me, this is significant. Here you have a scientist—not a politician or another military officer—predicting a huge UFO sighting that does indeed manifest shortly after. In my mind, this does suggest a secret organization that somehow knows things about UFOs that not even the military knows. Later in the book (p. 107), a certain Canadian research, Wilbert Smith, alludes to a secret group that is higher up than the military and CIA.
    Of course there may not be any truth to any of this. Ruppelt and Smith could have been lying to cover up the truth. However, if Dolan’s narrative throughout his book is to be believed—and he certainly offers compelling evidence—it seems like the military, CIA, FBI, and Washington politics have no idea what’s really going on when it comes to UFOs. But maybe someone out there does.

    I tend to believe there was at least one “inside group” operating within the official federal government. Operation PAPERCLIP is obviously the best example of that — and that group did indeed do things behind President Truman’s back, and so the idea that even the highest levels of government would know all there is to know about an what a secret agency or program is doing is demonstrably false. None of that, of course, means there is a true ET reality. If one assumes, for example, that Nazi PAPERCLIP scientists were tapping into the Nazi millions (billion?) both squirreled away during the war and created by companies that changed their identities and businesses (I.G. Farben, for example), and then using that cash for research into wingless aircraft — with the approval of their US employers, all that one needs to ask is whether the technology worked. The rogue hypothesis works like the above except that Nazi financiers and scientists are working independently (or passing what they were doing for us or the Russians to others working outside in isolated places like Brazil or Argentina). Who knows?

    One has to assume then that companies were already manufacturing exotic technology well before World War II since people were seeing things during the war (for instance, in 1942 a U.S. marine sergeant saw 150 wingless objects in the sky). I agree that aliens do not have to be the source, but then what has been the end game for secret companies who have access to all these marvelous things? Why for 70 years (or more?) have they been flying them around the world over civilian and military areas? Just because they can? It all seems so bizarre. I suppose it could be all part of a larger plan to fool everybody about their origins and also test the abilities of their craft at the same time. And I guess they can gain by power in the world by parceling out to various militaries and governments those pieces of technology they see fit, whenever they see fit.
    One last thing. What do you think of the theories brought forth by P.G. Navarro et al. about Nikola Tesla and the Sonora Aero Club of the mid 1800s? Perhaps it makes more sense that there was an explosion of sightings of strange craft in the 20th century if they had already been developed in the century before. As you say, “Who knows?”

    It is bizarre, not matter what the hypothesis.
