Gazrok, you rock! (yes I know, that was too easy) Superb post.
On subject, there is a point that always interested me, but I've never been able to put things together there...
For those with access to RATS, this thread
about USAF Sgt Richard Doty explains a bit
more about the guy.
Well, I have the feeling that this guy could be linked to a lot of it, much more than what seems obvious... Yes, it's only a feeling, but some things
are too well together.
First of all, it is about the period of time when Doty was heavily involved in mis/disinformation campaigns that those documents about the MJ-12 have
appeared. One has to wonder why a man like Doty would have any intersted in letting the MJ-12 thing getting revealed. Actually I think it was
incredibly handy for him to let this out at the time being. Particularly, mid 80's was a period of interest in UFO's and aliens.
But what is even more interesting, is that the letter alleged to have been signed by Truman himself, that is the setting stone of MJ-12 has been
heavily debunked, and a lot must agree now that indeed the signature at its bottom is totally identical to another one, found on a document totally
unrelated to UFO's.
This leads me to believe that the AFOSI, back then in the 80's, had a certain interested in letting the MJ12 being known, but somehow they had to
either link it to a then dead former president (to avoid someone else still alive maybe) or fabricate its creation at another convenient time.
As a matter of fact, the nuclear branch of research and intelligence is probably one of the most protected, and it is interesting to notice how UFO's
and nuclear matter have often been linked, would it be only by the persons involved.
Where am I going with all this? It seems a long way, but... So, my feeling is that the AFOSI and/or the CIA had a certain interest in letting some
info out, probably because they were starting to feel a certain level of "disclosure". The Roswell story had just been republicised (from memory in
1978?), and the general public was interested in those aliens & their crafts. By diverting the attention of researchers into a forged or at least
altered subject (i.e. the MJ12) they were in a position to control what they were about to "give out" or rather "let out". The episode of Linda M.
Howe with Doty is one perfect example of how they could manipulate people.
But why? Most of the initial people of the so called MJ12, if true, were dead, and mid 80's has seen a lot of budget restrictions. Although Ronald
Reagan was somehow interested in UFO's and stuff, it is also known that even the president himself doesn't know of all the black projects, of the
levels involved and of all the people involved.
To have a way to continue their activities as they would see fit, there was a necessity to "be threatened". I have then the feeling that Doty could
have been charged by his superiors (and he could well have been just a peon) to reveal a distorted face of the MJ12 in order to reinforce the
necessity to protect it. By doing so, it was then possible for the AFOSI to continue working while diverting the attention of the public, or at least
the researchers, on a few faked documents.
Of course there are and will always be people to look into it a bit more, and it is very probable that the whole story has a great deal of reality.
There have been a number of documents that are very much likely real, and as Gazrok effort shows, the whole story links, for the major part at
To what extent the CIA, the AFOSI and who knows who were involved in this, I don't know. I have not been able to piece it all together. The
involvement of the CIA in the whole UFO's chapter is far from a secret, although they would deny most of it (look for Gerald K. Haines article on the
subject, i can't find it online now, but it is referenced in many other publications, and even on the CIA website page related to some UFO's
There are many names that appear in many places... How exactly are they all linked is the key to understanding it.
