New Investigation Shows Disputed MJ-12 Document Exposing Extraterrestrial Contact is Authentic

In the newly released December edition of the MUFON Journal, the first detailed analysis of a leaked 47 page Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document is published, offering the startling conclusion that it is authentic. The DIA document provides a broad overview of the official history of extraterrestrial contact with Earth, and credits the beginning of the modern UFO era with the Colorado Springs radio transmissions of Nikola Tesla, which led to extraterrestrials sending interstellar craft to investigate. This culminated in flying saucer crash incidents such as Roswell (1947) and Aztec (1948), and the establishment of formal diplomatic relations with a human looking group of extraterrestrials during the Eisenhower administration.

The MUFON Journal article’s author, Dr. Robert Wood, is the world’s foremost authenticator when it comes to the controversial Majestic Documents. These are leaked documents concerning the activities of Operation Majestic 12, which was formally set up in September 1947 to manage the UFO/extraterrestrial issue. A former aerospace engineer with McDonnell Douglas whose career spanned 43 years, Dr. Wood began his investigation and authentication of the Majestic Documents in 1995 with his son, Ryan.

In his article, which is titled “Forty-Seven Pages From the DIA: Why Should We Care?”, Dr. Wood gives a succinct overview of the 47 pages of the leaked DIA document:

 Basically, there are five parts of intellectual content: (1) objective, history and organization of MJ-12; (2) details of the 1947 Roswell crash recovery; (3) details of the 1948 Aztec crash recovery; (4) condensed conversations with the Aztec EBE; and (5) issue of the national security or the risk of cultural upheaval, together with diplomatic and cultural exchanges during the 70s and 80s visiting some of EBE’s worlds.

For a more detailed breakdown of the document’s contents, see my previous articles analyzing these (here and here).

In the leaked 1989 DIA document, Dr. Wood finds a number of reasons that point to its authenticity and why it is an error to simply dismiss it as many UFO researchers have done to date. His detailed analysis of the typing, spelling mistakes, signatures, patents referenced, individuals mentioned, etc., in the document lead to his conclusion that it was a briefing dictated by a member of the Majestic 12 group to two typists. They typed up the 47 pages, a copy of which was preserved on microfilm by the DIA as Dr. Wood explained:

If one contemplates why there were so many errors made in a document officially recorded on a microfilm, and you pronounce the word or phrase on the left and look at the correct one on the right, usually they sound essentially the same. This would be consistent with the document having been created as a result of taking dictation and having two different typists implement the words on paper…

This would be consistent with MJ-12 (stated in this case to be individual MJ-1) having dictated a one-time entry-level summary for the new person, since one apparently was not available from prior written records at the time of the alleged briefing.

The DIA document’s cover page refers to itself as a “preliminary briefing” created by the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Office of Counter Intelligence, on January 8, 1989. The full title of the briefing package is “Assessment of the Situation/Statement of Position on Unidentified Flying Objects”, and it is addressed to the Office of the President.

The natural assumption to make is that the briefing was intended for President Elect George Bush, the Vice President at the time and winner of the 1988 Presidential election. However, by analyzing the only signature appearing on the DIA document, Dr. Wood concludes the briefing was actually intended for a distinguished astrophysicist at MIT, Dr. Philip Morrison:

This is the only signature on the document, and the first question might be whether it was the entry level person being briefed or the briefer. It seems much more reasonable that it was the person being briefed

Dr. Morrison began his career as a nuclear physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project and then moved his area of expertise to astrophysics to express his disapproval of the nuclear arms race. He became famous for popular books and documentaries dealing with astrophysics, and continued to be a Professor at MIT. In 1987, Dr. Morrison was the host of a six-part miniseries for PBS called “The Ring of Truth” which examined a number of astrophysics topics.  

There is important circumstantial evidence that the DIA document was a briefing dictated by the head of Majestic-12 to Dr. Morrison. In his MUFON article, Dr. Wood mentions that Dr. Morrison was on friendly terms with Carl Sagan, who some believe replaced Dr. Robert Menzel as a member of the Majestic-12 Committee upon the latter’s retirement and/or death in December 1976:

Philip Morrison was a very distinguished professor, who was a protégé of Oppenheimer and very likely was “in the know” on security issues, although I have no evidence of this. There is evidence, however, that he was very collegial with Carl Sagan during his career, helping to arrange a [UFO] symposium at the conclusion of the Colorado study in Boston.

Menzel had been named as MJ-10 on the Eisenhower Briefing document. In his book, Top Secret/MAJIC, veteran UFO researcher Stanton Friedman provided detailed evidence that Dr. Menzel was indeed a member of the Majestic 12 Committee, even though he wrote several books debunking the UFO phenomenon.

He is best known for his popular astronomy books such as Field Guide to the Stars and Planets (1964). Either prior to or shortly after Menzel’s death, the Majestic 12 Committee was looking for an astronomer/astrophysicist that could replace him. The replacement would have to have a firm scientific grounding in astronomy/astrophysics, broad public outreach, and have received Menzel’s recommendation prior to his death.

Dr. Sagan fit the bill with his scientific pedigree while a Fellow at Berkeley University when his work on NASA missions to Venus and Mars received widespread scientific recognition. Most importantly, his scientific work came to the attention of Dr. Menzel, who arranged for Sagan to be given an Assistant Professor position at Harvard University (1963-1968). Sagan moved to Cornell University, after he was denied tenure at Harvard, ironically due to the growing popularity of his generalist approach to science. Nevertheless, Menzel remained a firm supporter of Sagan.

Sagan achieved celebrity status through his popular books and documentaries, including his award winning Cosmos which aired on PBS in 1980 and was seen by 500 million people across 60 countries. If a position was reserved on the Majestic 12 Committee for a leading astronomer/astrophysicist with outreach to a global audience through popular books and television documentaries, and the approval of the previous position holder, then Sagan was the natural replacement for Menzel.

Similarly, by January 1989, when the Majestic 12 Group was looking for a replacement or an alternate to Dr. Sagan, due to impending retirement (he had likely been in the position since at least 1976) or some other reason (Sagan died on December 20, 1996), Dr. Morrison was a solid choice given his scientific pedigree, broad public outreach, and prior friendly relationship with Sagan. This is important circumstantial evidence in support of the authenticity of the DIA briefing document.

Also, the fact that the 1989 document was merely a briefing dictated by the head of the Majestic 12 Group for a new member taking up Dr. Sagan’s position, meant that not that much in the way of resources would have gone into preparing the briefing document.

The ad hoc nature in which the document was assembled, helps explain the notable security marking inconsistencies, spelling errors, cut and pasting of different documents together, etc., as many critics have pointed out.

In his MUFON article, Dr. Wood concludes in favor for the authenticity of the leaked 1989 DIA document with a number of compelling reasons despite its multiple errors. By identifying Dr. Morrison as the recipient of the briefing, rather than Vice President (President-Elect) Bush, Dr. Wood has provided the means of corroborating the document’s authenticity. Was Dr. Morrison being briefed as Dr. Sagan’s replacement on the MJ-12 Committee due to the latter’s retirement as a result of coming up to some kind of term limit due to his 13 years or more service as MJ-10?

As I mentioned in previous articles supporting the authenticity of the DIA document, its contents contain a wealth of information on topics such as the 1948 Aztec UFO crash; diplomatic relations between the Eisenhower administration and alien life; the role of Nikola Tesla in starting the modern UFO era; and the fact that human looking extraterrestrial are friendly and have been secretly living among humanity for decades.

Dr. Wood has performed a very valuable public service in authenticating the 1989 DIA document, opening the door to further close study of its rich contents and significant exopolitical implications.

Advanced Technology Reports Leaked by Corey Goode Confirmed by Leading Scientist

On December 17, 2017, Corey Goode uploaded two documents to his website that dealt with advanced technologies such as traversable wormholes and warp drives, which had been given to him by a confidential source. The two documents were part of a collection of 38 reports commissioned by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and have since been validated as authentic.

The two documents are titled “Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy” and “Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions”, the first was authored by Dr. Eric Davis, and the second co-authored by Dr. Richard Obousy and Davis.

Both documents stated that they were part of “a series of advanced technology reports produced in FY 2009 under the Defense Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications (AAWSA) Program.”

Dr Eric Davis provides Illustration of how a traversable wormhole works in one of his leaked documents

Veteran FOIA and UFO investigator, John Greenewald, confirmed that the two documents’ initial public release occurred through Goode. Greenewald wrote on January 12:

I saw these documents back in late December and early January, but dismissed them as they are largely sourced/credited to Corey Goode, a very controversial figure to begin with. If they are genuine (and they may be) these documents do not appear that they were released under any official channels.  So the biggest question is, “How did Corey get them?”  I have not found an ‘older’ source, but am open if anyone else has. Veteran investigator George Knapp, was been able to find the names of all 38 DIA studies which are called “Defense Intelligence Reference Documents”, and where the above two documents first leaked by Goode can be found. 

On June 2, UFO researcher Keith Basterfield similarly acknowledged Goode’s role in the initial public release of two documents through his website.

The full list of 38 DIA studies discovered by Knapp are titled Defense Intelligence Reference Documents (DIRDs). When contacted by British researcher, Isaac Koi, Dr Davis expressed his surprise that two of the documents he had authored had been released to the public thereby officially confirming their authenticity:

 “I don’t know how you got two of my DIRD reports” – “Yes! All of my DIRD reports are in the set of 38 total.”

Dr Davis, a leading world scientist was here confirming the authenticity of Goode’s two leaked documents. Furthermore,. In a June 24 appearance on Coast to Coast radio, Davis said:

… that 2 or 3 of these papers had been “leaked” onto the Internet, by “someone on the beltway.” The beltway is a highway that encircles Washington. A reference to “inside the beltway” means matters of importance to US government officials; lobbyists; and government contractors.

Davis was saying that “someone on the beltway” was Goode’s source for the two documents. This is an astounding admission!

For the first time since his emergence in late 2014, a leading scientist was on the public record in effectively stating that Goode was working with a Washington insider to reveal significant details of advanced space technologies being studied by the DIA!

A detailed analysis of the public emergence of the DIA documents, Greenewald’s discovery of Goode’s role, what Knapp, Koi and other researchers have concluded about the documents appears in a September 7, blog post by Mike Waskosky titled:  “Corey Goode’s DIA Documents: The Unreported AATIP Revealing”.

Curiously, the two documents have generated much discussion in the UFO community as Waskosky shows, but Goode’s role in making them public in the first place has been widely ignored for reasons alluded to by Greenewald. Instead, the emergence of the documents, which are directly linked to the “Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program” (AATIP aka AAWSA) once headed by Luis Elizondo, are now widely associated with To The Stars Academy, since that is where Elizondo currently works.

Consequently, the widespread assumption is that Elizondo and To The Stars Academy are responsible for triggering the release of the two DIA (AATIP) documents. That is false. The first documents relating to these programs were made available through Goode and his own insider sources. The obvious conclusion to be drawn is that Goode has genuine insider sources from the DIA that are leaking documents to him, and he in turn is making them public.

In a December 19, 2017 post on his Facebook page, Goode explained:

This series of unclassified DIA documents are said to be used to slowly “read in” certain people in the DOD/DIA to Special Access Programs. I have reached out to the authors and requested the other documents in this series as well as the reason they were given for producing them. I have also been shown some other documents that I may be able to share with you before long. We are setting up a WikiLeaks type system that will be a “SSP-Leaks Database” soon.

Goode has since June 2015 been saying that there is a huge treasure trove of documents that deal with advanced technologies used by multiple secret space programs that are eventually going to be released.

In an email response to an early draft of this article, he said: “I would add that documents are presented in this manner (Theory) 1. To read in very conservative types 2. Plausible deniability if the documents surface, they are just ‘theory’.”

Illustration appears in report on Warp Drive prepared by Dr Richard Obousy and Dr Eric Davis

The two DIA documents are the first concrete evidence that such a treasure trove exists. In a news story released on May 4, George Knapp’s I-Team released a third DIA (AATIP/ AAWSA) document dealing with advanced space travel technology, which is titled: “Advanced Space Propulsion Based on Vacuum Engineering” authored by Dr Hal Puthoff, who has subsequently verified the paper’s authenticity.

In order for insiders to facilitate the release of similar documents, Goode is currently moving forward with the idea of creating a website similar to Wikileaks where insiders can submit information via secure encrypted means for documents to be uploaded to the public realm without being identified.

Waskosky concludes his blogpost with some very appropriate questions about the two leaked documents that Goode was the first to make publicly available:

At this point it seems that the proper question to be asking is not how Corey Goode received these documents so much as WHY Corey Goode was trusted or selected as a source to be delivering these documents during the same time period that Luis Elizondo and TTSA were assisting with the mainstream media widely disclosing this same program (albeit sans-documentation). Could it be that there are multiple factions within the intelligence agencies working towards their own version of “disclosure” with different belief systems and/or agendas?

In a previous post, I have commented upon a growing debate about whether or not the To The Stars Academy is a limited disclosure initiative controlled by the Deep State. If so, it would be natural to conclude that genuine insiders are looking for an alternative source for releasing their information, and Goode has been chosen by at least one Washington Beltway insider as a reliable source.

These Are Real Pentagon Reports On Warp Drive, Extra Dimensions, Anti-Gravity, And More

by Tyler Rogoway and Joseph Trevithick               May 11, 2018                   (thedrive.com)

• A pair of official Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents have come to light showing the military’s keen interest in subjects such as warp drive propulsion, extra-dimensional manipulation, dark energy, and other highly exotic forms of space travel. The documents were first posted by Corey Goode late in 2017, and are now again revealed by George Knapp’s I-Team, part of Las Vegas CBS affiliate Channel 8 News, which has been investigating the government’s supposed connection with ‘UFOs’ for decades.

• Knapp has been digging deeper into Las Vegas-based Bigelow Aerospace, founded by UFO enthusiast Robert Bigelow, which was awarded the contract for the Pentagon’s Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AAITP), a $22 million classified program supporting a team of nearly 50 scientists, analysts, and investigators that investigated UFO sightings between 2008 and 2012.

• A March 29, 2010 study dealt with “advanced space propulsion” for faster-than-light travel, “space-time altered regions”, and “gravity/antigravity” forces. “This paper has considered the possibility—even likelihood—that future developments with regard to advanced aerospace technologies will trend in the direction of manipulating the underlying space-time structure of the vacuum of space itself by processes that can be called vacuum engineering or metric engineering.” This study was authored at the time by Austin-based EarthTech International, Inc. CEO Harold Puthoff, Ph.D for the Pentagon program.

• An April 2, 2010 study covered similar ground, but also included discussions about “dark energy” and “extra dimensions.” This document states, “The idea that a sufficiently advanced technology may interact with, and acquire direct control over, the higher dimensions is a tantalizing possibility, and one that is most certainly worthy of deeper investigation.” Eric Davis, Ph.D., working with a prior Bigelow company National Institute for Discovery Science, authored this study along with independent consultant Richard Obousy.

• “These studies are so loaded with information,” said Senator Reid who sponsored the Pentagon program. “One thing we learned is over the decades a lot of things happen there’s no explanation for. Well there are now.” However, neither report suggests that the technology they described was anywhere near practical or that any foreign government was close to achieving a relevant breakthrough.

• Harold Puthoff is now VP of Science and Technology at To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science, a non-profit organization in Encinitas, California that reportedly is, at least in part, continuing the AAITP’s work independently. Luis Elizondo, who was the head of the AAITP Pentagon program, is now the To The Stars Academy’s Director of Global Security and Special Programs.

• A pair of DoD military videos showing ‘tic-tac’ shaped UFOs recorded by Navy F/A-18 fighter jets had been floating around in in the Pentagon’s AAITP (previously known as Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications) and in defense circles for over a decade. To The Stars Academy was instrumental in publically releasing these UFO videos in December 2017. (See original NY Times article) Open disclosure about the origin of the video on an official level, as well as subsequent interviews with the pilot that took it, elevated it to mainstream news.

• Bigelow’s special unit’s investigation concludes that the Pentagon’s AAITProgram went far beyond documenting and evaluating reports of UFOs. It took a holistic approach, evaluating the impact on human biology in association with UFO sightings, and delved into other paranormal domains. It also claims to be storing mysterious material from downed UFOs. The depth of the government’s investigation of UFO technology leaves us wondering what hasn’t been revealed, whether out of fear of embarrassment or risk to national security.

 

The modern understanding of the Pentagon’s relationship with unexplained flying phenomena has become remarkably more pointed in the last six months since the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program was uncovered. Its disclosure came in between our own exclusive reporting on two very strange and well-documented encounters with strange aircraft operating in U.S. airspace. Now, new documents are coming to light that show the Department of Defense’s own spy agency was also interested in subjects that border on science fiction and the even the paranormal, including warp drive, extra-dimensional manipulation, dark energy, and other highly exotic forms of space travel.

The documents were first discovered by George Knapp’s I-Team, part of Las Vegas CBS affiliate Channel 8 News, which has been investigating the government’s supposed connection with ‘UFOs’ for decades.

Author’s note 5/14/18: It has come to our attention that the documents were in fact first posted by Corey Goode late last year shortly after the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program was first disclosed.

Recently Knapp has been digging deeper into Bigelow Aerospace—which is located in Las Vegas—and its starring role in the previously classified program. It is no secret that Robert Bigelow, a former real estate developer turned inflatable space station entrepreneur, has been highly interested in UFOs, but the depth of the company’s official relationship with the Defense Department regarding the topic was something entirely unheard of before the disclosure of the Defense Intelligence Agency’s (DIA) Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program occurred in December 2017.

Abbreviated AATIP, that effort, and its funding, sprang from Nevada Senator Harry Reid’s interest in the topic, along with that of a Defense Intelligence Agency official. The program, which eventually cost $22 million and ran roughly between 2008 and 2012, began after Bigelow won the contract, apparently to investigate UFO sightings, along with pretty much everything else that goes along with the topic for better or worse, on behalf of the military.

A team of nearly 50 scientists, analysts, and investigators were assembled to work on the program, which was originally and very cryptically dubbed the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications (AAWSA) Program before gaining its more recent moniker. The contract between the DIA and Bigelow made sure not to spell out its focus, instead referring to exotic technologies without mentioning UFOs.

The I-Team writes:  “The agreement with DIA did not mention UFOs at all. It used more generic terms such as future threats and breakthrough technologies, and specified 12 focal points including, lift, propulsion, materials, versions of stealth as well as human interface and human effects.”

It was under the AAWSA name that the organization funded at least two studies into advanced propulsion and space technology research that border on the fantastical. The first of these studies, dated March 29, 2010, deals with “advanced space propulsion” for faster-than-light travel, discussing theoretical physical constructs such as “spacetime-altered regions” and “gravity/antigravity” forces. The second study, which the AAWSA program published on April 2, 2010, covers similar ground, but also includes discussions about “dark energy” and “extra dimensions.”

The AAWSA experts did this work under the auspices of DIA’s Defense Warning Office, which makes good sense, at least conceptually. This organization first came into being in 2002 and is “charged with identifying sources of increasing threats to U.S. interests in critical regions,” according to an official briefing.

“This office will also identify opportunities to affect adversary behavior prior to and in the early stages of a crisis.” that presentation notes. In 2003, these tasks expanded to also include work “to provide the earliest possible warning of technological developments that could undermine U.S. military preeminence.”

UFO sightings are often indications of advanced and secret military aircraft research and development projects. Having a team of experts try and determine if any of the reports translated to real programs, especially those that potential opponents such as Russia or China might have been working on, would be well with DIA’s mandate for the office.

That AAWSA team would have delved into known developments in associated fields would also make sense in this context. If America’s adversaries were rapidly advancing toward practical warp drives and other advanced propulsion and space research, DIA would definitely want to know in order to help inform U.S. policy responses.

“These studies are so loaded with information,” Senator Reid reportedly said at one point, according to Las Vegas’ Channel 8. “One thing we learned is over the decades a lot of things happen there’s no explanation for. Well there are now.”
