is a supposed committee which was formed in
to investigate UFO activity. This committee is an important part of the UFO conspiracy theory
and its existence has been denied by the United States government
which insists that documents suggesting its existence are bogus.
The committee was supposed to have been chaired by Vannevar Bush, Robert Oppenheimer and Albert Einstein. In the minds of those who believe in this conspiracy, the scope of Majestic 12 operations cover not only the USA, but China and Russia, and the findings of alien technology is traded between secret organizations of these parties in order to achieve world domination or similar.
This conspiracy has widely inspired the main conspiracy theme of the popular TV series The X-Files and Dark Skies.
