The 'Secret Government'
(The Origin, Identity, and Purpose of MJ-12)
by William Cooper
I originally wrote thispiece as a research paper. It was first delivered at the MUFON Symposium on July 2, 1989 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Most of this knowledge comes directly from or as a result of my own research into the Top-Secret/MAJIC material which I saw and read between the years 1970 and 1973 as a member of the Intelligence Briefing Team of the Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet. Since some of thisinformation was derived from sources that I cannot divulge for obvious reasons -and from published sources which I cannot vouch for -- this must be termed a 'hypothesis'. I firmly believe that if the aliens are real. This is the true nature of the beast! It is the only scenario that answers ALL the questions and places the various fundamental mysteries in an arena that makes sense. It is the onlyexplanation which shows the chronology of events and demonstrates that the chronologies -- when assembled -- match perfectly. The bulk of this I believe to be true if the material that I viewed in the Navy is authentic. As for the rest, I do not know and that is why this paper must be termed a 'hypothesis'. Most historic and current available evidence supports this hypothesis.
During the years followingWorld War II, the Government of the United States was confronted with a series of events which were to change beyond prediction its future. And with it, the future of Humanity. These events were so incredible that they defied belief. A stunned President Truman and his top military commanders found themselves virtually impotent after having just won the most devastating and costly war in History.The United States had developed, used, and was the only nation on Earth in possession of the atomic bomb. This new weapon had the potential to destroy an enemy and even the very Earth itself. At that time, the United States had the best economy, the most advanced technology, the highest standard of living, exerted the most influence, and fielded the largest and most powerful military forces inHistory.
We can only imagine the confusion and concern when the informed elite of the United States Government discovered that an alien spacecraft piloted by 'insect-like' beings from a totally incomprehensible culture had crashed in the desert of New Mexico [Note: Some have alleged that certain 'sauroids' appear 'insect-like'. Other indications suggest that they may be 'para-physical' entitiesof some sort, perhaps those allegedly released -- according to Kenneth Grant and others -by the 'Illuminati' from another dimension via holes torn in the space-time fabric by the early atomic tests in the Nevada underground, New Mexico, and elsewhere -- Branton] Between January 1947 and December 1952, at least 16 crashed or downed alien craft, 65 bodies, and one live alien were recovered.
