Welcome to The Black Vault Document Archive

You’ve stumbled upon the largest privately run online repository of declassified government documents anywhere in the world. With more than 2 MILLION pages of documents to read, on nearly every government secret imaginable, The Black Vault is known worldwide for getting down to the truth… and nothing but.

Every page, photo and video you see below in this "FOIA Document Archive" was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or through other means of accessing U.S. government public information.

Begun in 1996, at the age of 15, John Greenewald, Jr., began hammering the U.S. Government with FOIA requests to obtain information. The Black Vault is the result of that more than two decade effort. Enjoy!
