MJ-12, also known as Majic-12 or as Majestic-12, is the name used for the initial core group of 12 experts who were in charge of the all the covert UFO-related projects. The group was established on 24 Sept. 1947 by Pres. Truman, and resorted directly and exclusively under his authority.
The late Bill Cooper had this to say about them: 'MJ-12 is the name of the secret control group. President Eisenhower commissioned a secret society known as THE JASON SOCIETY (JASON SCHOLARS) to sift through all the facts, evidence, technology, lies and deception and find the truth of the alien question. The society was made up of 32 of the most prominent men in the country in 1972 and the top 12 members were designated MJ-12. MJ-12 has total control of everything. They are designated by the code J-1, J-2, J-3, etc all the way through the members of the Jason Society. The director of the CIA was appointed J-1 and is the Director of MJ-12. MJ-12 is responsible only to the President. MJ-12 runs most of the worlds illegal drug trade. This was done to hide funding and thus keep the secret from the Congress and the people of the United States. It was justified in that it would identify and eliminate the weak elements of our society. The cost of funding the alien connected projects is higher than anything you can imagine. MJ-12 asassinated President Kennedy when he informed them that he was going to tell the public all the facts of the alien presence. He was killed by the Secret Service agent driving his car and it is plainly visible in the film held from public view. A secret meeting place was constructed for MJ-12 in MARYLAND and it was described as only accessible by air. It contains full living, recreational, and other facilities for MJ-12 and the JASON SOCIETY. It is code named "THE COUNTRY CLUB". Only those with TOP SECRET/MAJIC clearance are allowed to go there.'
Bill Cooper is not entirely correct: the Jason society actually is the "scientific wing" of Majestic/Maji.
Not only within the USA was such a group created. This happened in all major countries. The heads of all these organisations are often referred to, and probably incorrectly, as the Bilderberger Group.

Most researchers agree that the designation MJ-12 is no longer in use, and has been replaced by PI-40. The group, too, has been expanded over the years, to 40 members.
