Source: MysteriousUniverse.Org http://mysteriousuniverse.org/2012/05/ufos-mj12-reaches-25/ May 15th UFOs: MJ12 Reaches 25! by Nick Redfern Well, I was kind of expecting to see a bit of a fanfare this month about the infamous MJ12 documents. Why? Simple: this month marks exactly twenty-five years since they surfaced into the public domain in the pages of Tim Good's acclaimed book of May 1987: Above Top Secret: The Worldwide UFO Cover-Up. That there hasn't seemingly been much in the way of commentary on the 25th anniversary of what are, without doubt, one of the most controversial "things" ever to have surfaced within the ufological arena, suggests a few possibilities=85 First, maybe whole swathes of Ufology have simply forgotten about MJ12. Second, perhaps the fact that - for many in Ufology - the documents continue to frustratingly languish in that murky stalemate-driven realm of "genuine, disinformation, or hoax?" has led the research community to focus its attentions on what it sees as far more profitable and likely ways to secure the truth behind the UFO phenomenon. And, third, maybe people just don't care anymore about the debate surrounding the papers, their content, the way they surfaced, and the attendant analysis of their content. Whatever the answer(s), the papers did - and, for some, still do - play a significant role in Ufology for many a year. [More at site... thanks to 'The Norm' for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
