When I put up that short article about Truth and MJ-12, it seemed, according to my private correspondence, that the superscript and proportional spacing of the memos about George W. Bush and his Air Guard service had become the main issue. Those flaws were not the only things found. There were others, each, in and of itself not particularly egregious, but in the aggregate, suggest that the documents are faked.*
We see the same thing in the MJ-12 main document, that is, the Eisenhower Briefing document. There are many little flaws from the dating format that is more consistent with the digital age and Bill Moore, to the misspellings of words. None of these are particularly egregious, but in the aggregate suggest the document is a fake.
I have pointed out that there is a fatal flaw in the Eisenhower Briefing Document and that is the paragraph that describes the El Indio UFO crash of December 6, 1950. It is clear that this is the story invented by Robert Willingham, who first dated it to 1948 and later to the mid-1950s. He told the story to Todd Zechel, who told it to Bill Moore. Zechel believed that Willingham had been a high-ranking officer and fighter pilot in the Air Force but research showed that he had not been an Air Force officer or a fighter pilot. No evidence ever surfaced to prove that there had been a UFO crash on December 6, 1950, and if that story was a hoax, then the Eisenhower Briefing Document was a hoax. This would be the fatal flaw, taking down MJ-12.
In the documents released about George Bush there was a similar fatal flaw and it is in the document that refers to an OETR. There is no such document. There is, however, an OET/R. Those inside the Air Guard would have known this and not made such the mistake of calling it an OETR. The source of the mistake, it seems, was an anti-Bush website that had first published some of the documents before CBS got heavily involved. Apparently CBS didn’t know this.
Here’s what happened.
Those of you who have served in the military know that all these things are put into file folders and those folders have fasteners at the top. Documents are punched with two holes so that they can be secured in the folder to keep them in a specific order. The document, known as an Officer Effectiveness/Training Report (OET/R), had the two holes punched in it and one of the holes obscured the slash so that it looked as if it said, “Officer Effectiveness Training Report,” or the OETR.
According to William Campenni, who was a member of the Texas Air Guard at the relevant time, “So I did a little more research on the webpage and found that one Bush record was labeled ‘Notice of Missing or Correction Of Officer Effectiveness / Training Report,’ a multi-use sheet for both OERs and training reports. But Lukasiak [Paul Lukasiak, who originally put the document on the Internet before CBS became involved] did not notice that a hole punch at the top had punched out the ‘/’ (slash). Hence, he mistook it for “Officer Effectiveness Training Report” and created the acronym “OETR” At the time, I dismissed it as one of many Lukasiak errors and misrepresentations in that blog and put it out of my mind.”
This then is a fatal flaw that was created by a two-hole punch and a misunderstanding about these documents and what they are. To read the whole story, written by Campenni, see:
Here’s the point. The use of OETR in lieu of OET/R, while seemingly insignificant, points at the fraudulent nature of that document just as the use of the El Indio UFO crash on December 6, 1950, points to the fraudulent nature of the Eisenhower Briefing Document. Both errors, by themselves, prove that the documents are faked. There is simply no way around this.
Too often we all get lost in the minutia of the situation, talking about fonts, and spacing, and the other ancillary nonsense. We overlook the importance of some of these errors which demonstrate beyond any reasonable doubt that the documents are faked. For the story about Bush, it proves only that the documents are faked but says nothing about his service, which is, of course, a different issue. For MJ-12, it proves that the documents are faked and it ends the discussion about a committee named MJ-12.
While I know this will not end the discussion of the legitimacy of MJ-12, it should. There is no fallback position and there is nothing that has surfaced anywhere to suggest that it ever existed. Too bad that we will continue to waste our time on it.
*One of the other troublesome and basically fatal flaws in the Bush documents is the use of a serial number as opposed to a Social Security number. In the late 1960s and the early 1970s, the military switched from using a unique serial number to the Social Security number. By the time these Bush documents were allegedly written, the Social Security number had replaced the serial number on all official documents and the use of the serial number argues strongly against the validity of the Bush documents.
