Subject: UHR on MJ-12

An advanced copy of Barry Greenwood's article on MJ-12 just
arrived. Barry has allowed a quote:

"Curiously, the Woods, in their 1998 speech, raise the most
question about the (1952 Eisenhower) Briefing Paper (not one of
their Cooper releases but the 1987 release). They say, 'it seems
reasonable to conjecture that the Eisenhower Briefing Document
might have been a cleverly crafted piece of disinformation aimed
at the Soviets, and therefore the only document presented here
that is 'not entirely genuine', even though it contains much
that is precisely true.'"

"Yet the Briefing was wholeheartedly endorsed as genuine by the
original team of researchers, Moore, Shandera, and Friedman, and
still is by Friedman. Whose years-long, professional detailed
analysis is correct? Or might we create a new category of
document authenticity: the falsely genuine!"

In perusing chapter 8 of Friedman's book, TOP SECRET/MAJIC, we
find that Timothy Cooper supplied Friedman with copies of
several new MJ-12 documents a number of years ago, including a
February 1948 "Memorandum for the President" by Roscoe
Hillenkoetter, a September 25, 1947 memo to President Truman
from General George Marshall and a July 9, 1947 Turman to
Twining memo. The later two were included in the Woods' document
package presented at Omega [The Omega Conference in
Connecticut], and called genuine. Friedman appeared to be
noncommitted to those documents, but he was clearly not
impressed with the 1948 document, saying that it was 'really a
doctored version of a memo that would have been sent to
President Roosevelt during World War 2.'

"This document was one of the first sent to Friedman by Cooper,
the same as the Woods' papers. Yet the 1948 document was not
included in the Woods' analysis. Why? They can't claim ignorance
of it because it was quoted in Freedman's 1996 book, in the
midst of the Woods' years-long investigation. Did they not want
the public to know that some the supply from Cooper/Cantwheel
were transparent fakes that couldn't make the cut. Some of the
supply? Yes, there were other problem papers."

"Friedman alluded to 'another bunch of documents' from Tim
Cooper (TOP SECRET/MAJIC, pgs 158-9) condemning one September
27, 1947 document as an outright fraud, and adding that 'several
other items were retyped and slightly changed versions of old
memos and letters.' Neither were these Cooper/Cantwheel
documents dealt with in the Woods' analysis. Why?

"Smells like a cover-up to me!"

PS In my last correction I just substituted one horror for

>The origin of the documents cannot not be established.
>What's to say rather than chronicles of real events created
>in some government office, they are the work of people in
>trying fool someone.

Perhaps this is better:

The origin of the documents cannot be established. Rather than
chronicles of real events created in government offices; they
could be forgeries created by hoaxers wishing to fool people.
