As interesting as this idea might be, the application of the
Foster technique may come up with a "false positive". This is
because we already have a few of the Cooper/Cantwheel documents
(which Wood and Wood are analyzing) which are clearly doctored
original documents. That is, you take an original document which
is in the style of a particulal person and then you change a few
words...just enough to change the meaning or context of the
document so that it fits the new meaning or context.>In this
case, take a real document and change some words to make it fit
the MJ-12/flying saucer/bodies etc., context.>Then a linguistic
analysis would probably indicate that the document was genuine.

Of course, if there was too much alteration, then the analysis
could well show it to be false. The result is: if the analysis
shows it to be true, the analysis MIGHT be correct...and it
might not; if the analysis shows it to be false, then it very
probably is false.
