One of the most controversial documents to be uncovered in the anals of UFO research is called the MJ Documents. These documents were left under Jaime Shandera home door (as I recall reading) by an unknown source in 1984. At this Mr. Shandera was a producer in the Los Angeles area and was working with Bill Moore, to undercover the secret about the UFOs. At this time, Bill Moore was working with scientist Stanton Friedman and so the three of these men upon receiving these documents did extensive research. These documents have been re- published in a Richard Hall's book, "Uninvited Quests" as well as "Crash at Corona" by Stanton Friedman and Don Berliner in 1992. Mr. Friedman believes based on other documents they found in the National Archieve that the documents are geninue and other researchers have found some inconsistancies with page number and type face of the 1950's.
how could this have possibly gotten on the internet?
Every page it says Top secret / Majestic eyes only

I'm no expert but I'd have to agree, the font used on the cover page and throughout doesn't look like type face used in the 50's.
Typewriters were very common in the 50's and 60's

Some of the evidence found is hard to discredit. I've also been baffled at *why* someone would go through the trouble to do this, if it was not true. If it is a hoax, it is one of the grandest hoaxes ever, imo. Only the highest levels of scrutiny by some of the top critics out there found anything even remotely wrong, and even then it was niggling things.
The book written about this by Friedman is one awesome read.
One of the things that I personally found hard to discredit, was the level of detail someone would have to know in advance to perpetrate this hoax. That is, consider it in reverse. You have to cover all your bases in advance. The level of scrutiny these have gone over is amazing. And so, when creating them, you'd need intimate knowledge of creating such documents in the 40s. It's quite staggering to think someone got it that 'right.'
It could be a hoax of course, I just find it difficult to believe that is the case.
It's either genuine or a forgery by some very talented people.
