The MJ-12 Saga Continues, Greenwood Addresses New MJ-12
Documents In The Next UHR

Once again, extraordinary claims are being made involving
a number of documents shoved into Tim Cooper's mail box.
These second generation MJ-12 document highly promoted by
Dr. Robert Wood and his son attract new people to the MJ-12
morass. The Woods claim that by looking at the content of the
documents they can determine the authenticity of the material.
Provenance is irrelevant to these proponents.

The Pope once sent Charlemagne a letter from St. Peter. By this
time, Charlemagne was no longer the gapping mouth youth, who on
foot had lead the Pope's mount as a token of respect.
Charlemagne had ordered all communications with the Pope
carefully recorded and worded since the Pope would exploit
anything that seem favorable to Rome to the greatest possible
extent.

Today no one believes that St. Peter's letter originated in
heaven, although you still find some scholars who claim that
another document popular at the time, "The Donations of
Constantine" is still a valid document. Even the scholars who
make such claims do not, as the Woods do, claim that there is
no valid criticism of their document. All doubt has been
answered about the MJ-12 documents, or so we are to believe.

So while most of ufology does not yet accept the extravagant
claims for the new MJ-12 documents, there are many new people
who find these documents compelling. The documents are actively
promoted on Art Bell and on other radio shows, and on the
Internet.

Barry Greenwood will devote the next UFO Historical Revue to
problems and flaws in the new MJ-12 documents. It will probably
be in the mail next week.
