For those who read extensively in this area, Stanton Friedman is clearly the Einstein of the field. Not one to engage in unsupported speculation, Friedman approaches the MJ-12 question carefully, methodically, and with the highest standards of scholarship. When he doesn't know something, he clearly states it. When the evidence shows that something is likely, he explains why it's more likely than other explanations. In this book, Friedman tackles, among other topics, the amazing manuscript known as the Eisenhower Briefing Document, which, if legitimate, amounts to an admission by the U.S. government that UFOs are real and that their existence has been deliberately kept from the American public since at least the 1940s. Friedman argues masterfully in favor of the authenticity of this seminal UFO proof document. In my opinion, this is the best book out there about the so-called Majestic 12 documents.

Let's be honest. There is no "PROOF" of an extraterrestrial presence that you will find in this book or ANY other book. However, as many other respected researchers, investigative journalists, and curious scientists have done in the past, Stanton Friedman presents a strong case for the ETH (Extra-Terrestrial Hypothesis). He validates every assertion he makes throughout the book with substantial verifiable evidence in government documentation and otherwise. Friedman never simply promotes his personal opinion as matter of fact - at least not in Top Secret/Majic.

The appendices are terrific as well including the MJ-12 Eisenhower Briefing Document in its entirety, a letter from General Twining to Schulgen, insider information uncovered during authentication of Majestic-12 documents, some exclusions to the freedom of information act, Air Force response to senator Patty Murray, and the directors of central intelligence (from Sidney Souers to John Deutch). There is also 10 pages of external sources and references from large scale scientific studies to books written about and by debunkers.

Also included are 22 black and white photographs of alleged members as well as key Roswell witnesses, and Friedman himself along side debunker Phil Klass. There is also a recreation of the Majestic-12 Operations Manual as deciphered by Dr. Robert Wood from low quality snap shots consisting of 18 pages.

Friedman effectively and substantially demolishes the competition by irrefutably ruling out common debunking explanations for the MJ-12 documents to validate his postulation of authenticity.

Excellent book. After reading this book, it looks like there are no good arguments against the validity of the Majestic Documents. The book is very well written and reveals many facts about debunkers. Very good appendices also.

Mr. Friedman is a persuasive proponent of the thesis that the US Government has engaged in a massive cover-up concerning the existence of UFOs. He theorizes that the government has recovered crashed UFOs, and that certain leaked information concerning this program of deception is authentic.

Friedman is no crank, in my opinion, whether you agree with his belief concerning UFOs or not. This book contains some fascinating leaked documents, which, if not fraudulent, are startling indeed.

On the downside, this book contains a lot of rather involved argument concerning the credibility of various UFO debunkers that I had never even heard of. It is mostly insider's arguments of limited relevance to the casual reader (e.g. myself) who does not know the personalities involved. This is not, in short, a summary of Friedman's theory of UFOs with background supporting such theory. It is more of a reply argument against certain persons who have attacked Friedman and his theory. As such, the book was a bit of a disappointment to me. On the other hand, more involved UFO-ologists may really appreciate the detailed arguments and rebuttals that Friedman presents.

For those who are unaware, Majestic-12 is allegedly a Top-Secret US Government program to deal with an alien presence on Earth. It allegedly began shortly after the Second World War under President Truman. At various times certain UFO experts have received, anonymously, documents that appeared to be official US Government or military documents that support the existence of Majestic-12. Certainly very thought-provoking.

An interesting read.

Format: Paperback
Based on extensive research in 20 archives and libraries and with the assistance of handwriting and document verification experts the author, a well-respected, veteran ufologist, makes a excellent case for the authenticity of the 3 principal MJ-12 documents and we can conclude that they have an over 90% probability of being genuine as he skillfully and convincingly demolishes with established facts all the skeptical arguments and objections. And there is no convincing nor compelling evidence to indicate any fraudulence to the documents.

The author also recounts the intrigue and detective work behind the research into the Roswell crash and, of course, into the documents themselves and devotes chapters, as well, to MJ-12 itself, engrossing FIA court challenges, skeptics, and the alien autopsy film hoax. He begins with a brief bio as an introduction and ends with an afterword, 6 appendices, a list of sources, and an index. There are 21 black and white photos.

Naturally, skeptics are not amused especially the lunatic fringe among them(skepticultists) whose claims are, evidentially, on a par with creationism, geocentricism, and the flat Earth and hollow Earth and lunar landing hoax ideas, and are a complete laughing stock, have zero credibility, and are partners in crime with the cover-up mafia with which they form the Anti-Truth Axis. Yet they are taken seriously by powerful pluralities in the media and academia who might well be motivated more by politics than by skepticism. By contrast, the ETT(extraterrestrial theory), evidentially, is on apar with atomic, quantum, relativity, and evolutionary theory.

A fascinating book recommended for those interested in the evidence.
