Here is the key point: Even if the documents had been
faked the research into confirming their authenticity led to finding
eyewitnesses who saw or handled wreckage or bodies from the crashed
saucer! Many of these eyewitnesses have signed sworn affidavits. Others
given what amounts to dying declarations, both allowable as evidence in
court of law in the United States. In addition, all their stories fit
like the workings of a fine watch. Their time frames all line up, as do
descriptions. The evidence that the crash at Roswell really did occur

Double Reverse In another effort to authenticate
the MJ-12 papers, one
researcher used a unique but effective approach. Lee Graham, an
worker, realized that anything stamped "Top Secret" (like the MJ-12
papers) fell under government security regulations; specifically,
Defense regulation 5200.1-R, which requires government employees or
government-contracted workers to report any leak or breach of security
Secret documents. The forging or faking of Top Secret documents is also
violation of this statute.
The FBI Checks Them
Out Graham reported the MJ-12 documents
as being either
stolen or forged. The FBI spent over one year investigating whether
documents were forged or not. The FBI concluded two things:
if the MJ-12 papers were forged, it was an
incredible forgery, unlike any they had ever seen in the past. The
the people and events from fifty years ago were absolutely accurate and
coincided with their internal documents.

get any part of the U.S. government to acknowledge that they had lost
