Moon Dust Men: MAJESTIC Overwatch
“OPERATION MAJESTIC-12 is a TOP SECRET Research and Development/Intelligence operation responsible directly and only to the President of the United States. Operations of the project are carried out under the control of the Majestic-12 (Majic-12) Group which was established by special classified executive order of President Truman on 24 September, 1947, upon recommendation by Dr. Vannevar Bush and Secretary James Forrestal.”

“Based upon DOD representations made to SSA [REDACTED] which, incredibly, tended to buttress a portion of the document, he discussed this matter with [Deputy Assistant Director] Brandon on 10/30/91.”
