I also believe that the 3 core MJ-12 documents are authentic. I think they were prepared by people who were still comming to grips with the ideas they
contained and because of that were prepared in a non-standard fashion. Doing this also helps to prevent people from believing they are real if, as
eventually happened, they get leaked to the public.
There are many books out there that cover the ideas behind disinformation and psychological warfare, the principlies are well known. It is a form of
PR, getting someone to believe what you wish them to believe.
In the UFO realm the main point has always been to simply discredit people who are found to have real information. The way humans think makes this
amazingly easy to accomplish. You read something that is an accurate and real account of an event. You tell someone else and they say 'Well I heard
he was arrested for child molestation 10 years ago'. And blammo, you throw the story out.
The percentage of people who will actually dig and try to verify this offhanded comment is sadly quite small. This same technique has been used in a
large context for years.
Another way this sort of thing is accomplished is to feed someone false information that you can then discredit. I can publish 100 authentic documents
but let me get caught supporting even 1 fake one and most people stop listening.
In some cases, and I think this is what happened to Bob Lazar. People, either for their own protection, or because they were forced into it, mix in
some false information with the truth. They are still getting some of the truth out but the false information reduces the number of people who will
believe in them to a tiny fraction. You might remember that for a time Lazar was the focus of almost everyone in the UFO community.
I have always felt the driving force behind all this is not an overabundance of knowlege on the part of officials but rather the reverse. They do not
know all that much and this alone is frightening. They do know that we have been able to do little to stop these events and since they are charged
with the defense of all of us they do not wish that to become known.
Along with this fear is the power that the knowledge brings. Whatever amount of knowledge we have gained from recovered crashes and other events is
all the more powerful because it is not shared with the rest of the World. Just the mere fact that we are not alone, that someone can travel here from
other Planets is a powerful thing.
