The CIA Releases Its UFO Files


The CIA released its own version of the 'X-Files' to the public early.

The agency is releasing thousands of documents pertaining to UFOs and other phenomena, though there's no way of knowing if this is truly everything they have. The papers are available to view at a website called 'The Black Vault'.

Believe it or not, the order to release the files was part of last month's $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.

The archive can be found at TheBlackVault.com, hosted by UFO researcher and podcaster John Greenewald Jr.

Greenwald told Vice’s Motherboard that he believes the documents are made difficult to parse for calculated reasons. “The CIA has made it INCREDIBLY difficult to use their records in a reasonable manner,” he said of the “outdated” file format. “In my opinion, this outdated format makes it very difficult for people to see the documents, and use them, for any research purpose.”
