The authors of www.majesticdocuments.com have consulted with
lawyers about the legality of revealing alleged government secrets.
The laws covering this area are Title 18 Sections 793 and 794 which
pertain to espionage. The lawyer asked three questions: 1. did you pay
anyone for these documents?, 2. did you steal these documents?, and
3. did you coerce anyone for these documents? The answer to all these
questions is: NO. Furthermore, after interviewing many of the other
sources of MAJESTIC, MAJIC, and MJ-12 documents, we feel confident that
they too would answer the legal questions in the negative.
However, a gray area exists. Is it reasonable to believe that these
documents are likely still classified? Yes, unless their creation and
existence is illegal in itself.
Many of the alleged classified documents presented here have been made
public in another form or or at another time. Historically, the military
has ignored ufology and its actions to unravel the Cosmic Watergate;
yet, in the last ten years the Air Force and other government agencies
have made more public statements. For example, the "crash test dummies"
explanation of Roswell, of the balloon explanation of Roswell in "Case
Closed," or finally by proclamation as in the case of the FBI simply
stating on their website (www.fbi.gov) that the Eisenhower Briefing
Document (EBD) is bogus with no meaningful discussion.
