The CIA Has Opened Its "Black Vault", Releasing Millions of UFO & Paranormal Documents


The U.S government's official UFO report is dropping in less than six months. 

And as an appetiser, you can download all available CIA documentation on UFOs thanks to the COVID-19 omnibus bill.

The CIA's "Black Vault" (a clearinghouse for declassified documents) released a downloadable document archive full of PDFs. 

What's inside?

CIA files on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), which is the preferential way the guv'ment says UFO. Some reports are retro, as in the 1980s according to site founder, John Greenewald Jr, and attests that the declassified documents available are all of tits documents on UFOs/UAPs.

According to Mr Greenewald, there are over 10,000 Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) reports within the PDFs which were painstakingly obtained and scanned by the man himself.

“Around 20 years ago, I had fought for years to get additional UFO records released from the CIA,” Greenewald said. “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 CIA created a CD-ROM with previously unreleased records on it including previously released records and some that were yet to be declassified.

Why now?

The CIA attempted to ensure The Black Vault had a complete record of CIA documents available and created the CD-ROM in the middle of 2020. At least, that's what they say. 

While they maintain this is the reasoning and full collection of documents on UFOs/UAPs, there may be no way to verify it. There could be any number of documents out there.

“Researchers and curious minds alike prefer simplicity and accessibility when they look at data dumps such as these,” Greenewald said. “The CIA has made it INCREDIBLY difficult to use their records in a reasonable manner. They offer a format that is very outdated and offer text file outputs, largely unusable, that I think they intend to have people use as a “search” tool. In my opinion, this outdated format makes it very difficult for people to see the documents, and use them, for any research purpose.”

Greenewald said there have been "thousands" of downloads within the first day of the release that range from Bosnian fugitives who allege they made contact with aliens, to mysterious Eastern European midnight explosions. 

One thing is for sure, the reads within The Black Vault are entertaining, to say the least. 
But be warned, some are crystal clear to read with vivid detail and comprehension while some are near indecipherable nonsense. 

One of the more interesting accounts, Greenewald says, is the hand delivery of information to the Assistant Deputy Director for Science & Technology (A/DDS&T) in the 1970s and seen below.



In the document, the A/DDS&T was shown something related to a UFO that was hand carried to him. He decided he would personally look into it, and after, he gave advice on moving forward. That advice is classified.

For the past two years, truth-seekers have made an open "Mandatory Declassification Review" request to attempt to get some of these redactions lifted, so we can see what was hand delivered, and what his advice may be.

What was the something?
A box?
A device?
A biological something-or-rather?

For now, we don't know. But hot-dang she's interesting. 

And the transparency (if that's what is actually happening) is refreshing. 

The first UFO/UAP information to become declassified under FOIA laws came in the 1970s and early 1980s. After this, Greenewald says it became near impossible to obtain government data on extraterrestrial phenomena.

“Plain and simple, the public has a right to know!” Greenewald said. “When I began researching nearly 25 years ago at the age of 15, I knew there was something to this topic.  Not because of viral internet hoaxes. Not because of back door meetings wherein I can’t tell you who, but I promise it was mind-blowing information. No, none of that. It was simply because of the evidence that I got straight from the CIA. And the NSA. And the Air Force. And the DIA. I feel I am achieving what I set out to do. Easy access, to important material, for people to make up their own minds on what is going on.”



As of writing, the CIA has not responded to a request for comment.

Have you had a squiz?

Is the truth out there?
