Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) UFO Collection

Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) UFO Collection

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has released nearly 1,000 pages on UFO material. These documents were one of the very few batches of UFO records I requested under the FOIA way back in 1996.  The first batch, represented in PDF #1, were the records released by the CIA due to the FOIA case Ground Saucer Watch v. CIA for UFO related records back in the mid 1990s. (The CIA denied the release of UFO material, and the Ground Saucer Watch appealed and sued for the material. They were successful and below was the release).

When I began requesting material under the FOIA, I asked for all records generated AFTER that court case. Of course, the CIA had the package of material they were selling to requested, but they (for years) would not address any UFO records after the release of this first batch. After fighting for quite some time, I was one of the first to receive the UFO material made after this first release. You will find this batch (represented by PDF file #2) consisted primarily of newspapers articles – quite a change from the first batch released.

What happened? Did the CIA resort to just collected UFO related newspaper articles? Or was, and is, a cover-up ongoing? You decide.
