Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have been talked about or read about by an amazing 95% of all Americans, and 57% of them think they are real. Carter and Reagan both say that they have seen a UFO. UFOlogists, UFO fans, and private UFO groups can be found all over the United States.
Many people think that the US Government and the CIA, in particular, are involved in a huge plot to hide the truth and cover up the issue. Since the modern UFO phenomenon began in the late 1940s, UFO fans have been interested in the idea that the CIA has been hiding its research on UFOs.
There has been tremendous pressure by UFOlogists for the release of additional CIA information on UFOs, consequently, the CIA gave a truth-seeking website its entire collection of UFO-related documents.
CIA Releases UFO Documents
Thanks to the efforts of a few intrepid truth-seekers, you may now download and browse more than three decades’ worth of government UFO records.
More than 2,700 pages of UFO-related materials released by the CIA since the 1980s are included in the enormous data dump. (The US government also refers to them as UAPs, or unidentified aerial phenomena.) The materials were obtained, according to The Black Vault, an online archive of UFO-related documents run by author John Greenwald Jr., through a long line of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests submitted over the past 25 years.
Over time, there were so many requests that the CIA produced “The UFO collection,” a CD-ROM containing all of the declassified materials. Greenwald bought the CD-ROM in the middle of 2020, and he just finished publishing the information on it as a collection of searchable PDF files on his website. They are available at The Black Vault.
The records span a wide range of situations, from the 1976 report of a mysterious piece of UFO intelligence being personally delivered to the government’s then-Assistant Deputy Director for Science & Technology to the description of a weird midnight explosion in a tiny Russian village.
Could There Be More CIA UFO Documents Still Not declassified?
There may be no way to completely validate the CIA’s assertion that this is their “entire” collection of declassified materials, according to Greenwald, who posted a statement on the website The Black Vault. The Black Vault will keep looking to see if there are any new documents discovered in the CIA’s archives.
The data leak came months ahead of when representatives from the US Department of Defense and intelligence agencies were scheduled to testify before Congress and reveal everything they know about UFOs, according to the New York Post. The COVID-19 relief measure, which was approximately 5,600 pages long when it was enacted in late December 2020, had a clause requiring the agencies to “deliver a report on unidentified aerial phenomena to the congressional intelligence and armed services committees within 180 days.”
The provision came after a landmark year for UFOs, in which frightening video was taken in 2004 and 2015 of an unidentified object swooping past numerous U.S. Navy planes was ultimately declassified.
The new data dump was important, but it only represented a small portion of The Black Vault’s vast library. Greenwald purportedly obtained the website’s archive, which comprises more than 2.2 million pages of UFO-related content, through more than 10,000 FOIA requests.
More UFO Documents Declassified And Released By CIA
A Navy intelligence official told lawmakers at a congressional hearing in May that there are now about 400 UFO reports in a database. This is up from 143 about a year ago when the report was released.
In a report from the military from 2021, it said that no proof of aliens had been found. The deputy director of Naval Intelligence, Scott W. Bray, told lawmakers that they haven’t found anything “non-terrestrial in origin” yet, even though there have been things that they can’t explain.
He said that none of the objects that had been seen had tried to talk to U.S. pilots, and no one had tried to talk to them either, since they all seemed to be unmanned.
Bray said that there have been more and more reports of unidentified flying objects, which the military now calls unexplained aerial phenomena or UAPs. He said that the rise was due to better sensors, more drones and other non-military unmanned aerial systems, and “aerial clutter” like Mylar balloons.
House Of Representatives Intelligence Subcommittee Says UFOs Are Real
Andre Carson, who is in charge of the subcommittee, stressed how important it is to take UAPs seriously.
“UAPs are unexplained, it’s true. But they are real,” Carson said, raising concerns that Pentagon officials have in the past focused on “low-hanging fruit,” or cases that are easy to explain, while avoiding the ones that can’t be explained.”
“Can we be sure that your analysts will follow the facts where they lead and test all hypotheses?” Moultrie was asked by Carson.
Moultrie replied, “Absolutely.” “We are open to any ideas. We’re willing to accept any conclusions we may come to.”
“We want to know what’s out there just as much as you do,” Moultrie said, admitting that he liked science fiction when he was a kid.
In November, a Pentagon group called the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group took the place of the Navy task force that worked on the report from last year.
In a report from last year, it was said that UAP sightings probably don’t have a single explanation and that more data and research are needed to figure out if they are some kind of strange aerial system made by a secret U.S. government or business or by a foreign power like China or Russia. It also said that the weather, “airborne clutter,” and a pilot’s mistaken perception could all be factors.
The top Republican on the subcommittee, Rick Crawford, said he was “on board” with looking into the subject but was “more interested” in things like learning more about how China and Russia are making hypersonic weapons.
