(Blogger's Note: Normally I would take more time to edit this, but there is pressure to get something posted. This is my opinion based on what I have seen, read, and researched since I was alerted to the documents at 4:18 p.m. CDT on June 14. Excuse the typos...)

I’ve had time to review the document carefully, or rather given it a solid
first reading and I have some points to make. I will note here that in my talks
with Stephen Bassett, he suggested that all of us, meaning Stan Friedman,
Richard Dolan, him and me, create a list of what our first impressions are, and
the things that we spotted right off the top. I thought that idea had some
merit. We’re not looking to authenticate or debunk, only at the things that
disturbed us in some fashion.
did ask Heather Wade about the source, or sources, and she didn’t give me
names, only that they were ex-military and had possessed the documents for a
very long time. She didn’t know which government agency had originated them,
and there seemed no way to verify them through government sources. We also seem
to suffer from the same problems that we’ve always had and that is that we’re
working from copies and not originals. This makes the whole process problematic…
and I think we can point to many cases in which copies of documents have turned
out to be forgeries (think CBS and George W. Bush’s military records and any
number of MJ-12 documents).

classification markings on the documents do not seem to be consistent with
authenticity, that is, the classification is not marked at both the top and the
bottom of the document.
dating format, 07 July, 1947, is not one that was in use in 1947, but I suppose
you could argue that this format is consistent with the other MJ-12 documents
even if it is more consistent with a dating format used by Bill Moore.
use of “Ultra Top Secret” also raises questions. Ultra was the British code
name for their operation to intercept and read high-level, highly-classified
Nazi message traffic. This code name seems inappropriate for use by the US
government or military. In keeping with that, there are several mentions that
these documents are classified “Above Top Secret,” but that is really a misnomer…
Top Secret is the highest classification, but the number of people allowed to
review certain documents can be further restricted by adding a code word. Only
those who are code word cleared would have access to the document and by adding
a second code word you restrict the numbers even further. So, if there are two
code words, you have a document that can be said to be two points above top
secret, though that is not actually a fact. While we can argue the semantics of
this, I don’t believe someone on the inside would talk of a document being
classified two points above top secret, but rather suggesting it was double
code word protected.
description of the Roswell case, and the chronology is not accurate based on
all the documented evidence available. As but a single example, the document
tells us that Mack Brazel alerted the authorities at Roswell Army Air Forces
base (which is not the correct name of the facility) at “05:18” (which should
have been written as 0518 hrs) though it is clear that it was the sheriff who
alerted the Army and Major Marcel himself said that he learned about it as he
was eating lunch.

of the major red flags is, “At his arrival in Roswell, General Twining relieved
Colonel Blanchard of command…” There is no evidence of any such order. The
relief of a commanding officer is a major event. Had Twining arrived in Roswell
and assumed command by virtue of being the senior officer present, that is not
the same thing.
going to leave the Roswell segment here, though I see many other problems, and
move onto the “Aztec UFO Crash,” which is featured more prominently (which
means I’m not even going to discuss the fraudulent IPU). As I was reading this,
I thought the same thing that one of the commenters made on the previous post,
that is, I was reminded of William Steinman’s nonsensical book, UFO Crash at Aztec. If we compare this
to Scott Ramey’s book, The Aztec Incident,
the chronology here is all wrong. If we accept Ramey’s book as accurate, then
the document fails (which is sort of a point in another arena).
this document, they have changed the times which had been Mountain Standard Time,
to what they call Local Time or LT. If this was strictly a military document, I
would have expected the times to be converted to Greenwich Mean Time or Zulu
Time. Not really a fatal flaw but one that seems to be out of place.
now going to skip all the trouble with the Aztec aspect of this simply because
there is so much that is simply wrong. And if this is a real briefing, where is
the mention of Del Rio, Plains of San Agustin and Kingman? They mention other crashes but provide no detail, probably because these details would be difficult to find and easy to refute.
we are now treated to the transcript between an EBE and an assortment of
interviewers who are never named for a reason that I can’t fathom (unless, of
course, they don’t exist). At first glance, I was drawn to the comment about
why the aliens had coming to Earth for centuries and learned, “And we like
trees?” I wondered if this was the same group of aliens that liked strawberry
ice cream and Tibetan music.
did mention this to Stephen Bassett who wondered if someone had gone to all the
trouble to fake the documents, all the study that it had taken and the time to
create it, if he or she would then sabotage the effort with some ridiculous,
off the wall comment about liking trees.
first reaction was to think that was an interesting point, but I had yet to
carefully read the document. Having now done so, I see that there really is
nothing new here. The information about Roswell is wrong, the name of the base
is wrong, the chain of command is wrong, and even the higher headquarters at
Fort Worth is wrong (it wasn’t the 5th Air Force, but the 8th).
Aztec material is derivative of Steinman’s book, the MJ-12 information is taken
from there (or maybe from any of Stan Friedman’s many writings on it), and
there is nothing that is suggestive of advanced scholarship. The writing does
not sound as if it came from a government source, and without names, without
government agencies, without any way to check things out, this just doesn’t
seem to be authentic. I withheld my opinion on this, just announcing that the documents have been released so
others would have a chance to review them, but it is now clear that
this does nothing to further our knowledge and just confuses an already
