No alien/human activity occurs without humans first giving The Call, but in the case of military involvement with aliens this can be confusing. If a general gives The Call and enters into an arrangement with aliens, can he command others to go along? In fact both rule systems are in place simultaneously, and here's how it works. Members of the military who are initiated into MJ12 follow a plethora of rules and regulations just as any military intelligence unit does. They also, on occasion, come in contact with aliens. During these interchanges the rules in place go beyond those in place during the usual alien/human contact where the human can allow physical contact or disallow this, delimiting the interchange. MJ12 agreements with aliens of either orientation have always included the caveat that aliens can not physically affect the humans assigned to MJ12 duty, even if the human wishes for this, or gives permission, or even demands this.
