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!" -- Jan Aldrich Project 1947 http://www.iufog.org/project1947/ P. O. Box 391, Canterbury, CT 06331, USA Telephone: (860) 546-9135 PS In my last correction I just substituted one horror for another. >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.
