It has recently come to light that all the declassified files that the CIA has on unidentified flying objects (UFOs) can now be downloaded online.
As reported by Motherboard, all these declassified files are available for download on the Black Vault, the largest privately run archive of declassified documents in the world. Black Vault has released a downloadable document archive with PDFs containing CIA files on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). What’s really interesting is that some of these reports date back to the 1980s.
“Around 20 years ago, I had fought for years to get additional UFO records released from the CIA,” said John Greenewald, founder, Black Vault. “It was like pulling teeth! I went around and around with them to try and do so, finally achieving it. I received a large box, of a couple thousand pages, and I had to scan them in one page at a time.”
The report notes that Black Vault announced the archive in a blog that claims the CIA had created a CD-ROM comprising all the previously released records along with the ones that the Black Vault wanted to unseal. Since Black Vault wanted a complete record of CIA documents, it bought the CD-ROM from the CIA in mid-2020. As per CIA, this represents all of its documents that the agency claims it has.
There have already been thousands of downloads within the first 24 hours of the release and the records comprise some really interesting and mysterious stories. These include ‘dispute with a Bosnian fugitive with alleged E.T. contact’, ‘midnight explosions in a small Russian town’, and more. The report notes that while most of these records are easy to understand, there are others that are hard to decipher.
According to Greenewald, it was difficult to get all this information from the government around extraterrestrial phenomena, the public has a right to know about these records.
