There's very little doubt in my mind that the Majestic 12 documents are fairly well researched fan fiction. I've really become fascinated with UFOs
during the Truman years and don't think for a second that anything along those lines was ever put in writing. Gen. Robert Landry's oral history at the
Truman Library alludes to this when he wrote about his UFO briefings for Truman. Nothing in writing . . . ever.
The Eisenhower briefing document, supposedly the most authentic of the bunch? Chances it's legit are nil. When Eisenhower came into office, the CIA
director was Bedell Smith who had been Eisenhower's chief of staff for much of WWII. If there was a briefing to give, I think Smith would have done
it, again orally, not Hillenkoeter.
By the way, if you've ever seen the movie Patton, the guy who was always yelling at Patton on behalf of Eisenhower was Bedell Smith.
