    Big data drop from John Greenewald, see the link below for the entire listing, I've quoted only a small amount here...

    UFOs: The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Collection

    Background

    Below you will find a collection of CIA related UFO records. The Black Vault’s connection to the CIA in getting some of these UFO documents released goes back to 1996.

    Originally, the CIA would only release about 1,000 pages that had been previously disclosed after a FOIA court case in the 1980s. They never addressed the records that were dated in the years after the case.

    The Black Vault spent years fighting for them, and many were released in the late 1990s. However, over time, the CIA made a CD-ROM collection of UFO documents, which encompassed the original records, along with the ones that took years to fight for.

    In an effort to make sure The Black Vault stayed up to date, in mid 2020, this CD-ROM was purchased to have one particular data dump available for all users of The Black Vault. You will find this below for download in its original state, along with a converted/searchable .pdf format. (Although the CIA claims this is their “entire” collection, there may be no way to entirely verify that. Research by The Black Vault will continue to see if there are additional documents still uncovered within the CIA’s holdings.)

    (Please note: Some media channels are reporting I filed 10,000 FOIA requests to get these documents. That is untrue. Over the years there were quite a few, but the reference is The Black Vault has filed 10,000 FOIA requests TOTAL to amass the 2.2 MILLION pages in this entire archive. Not just for the below documents. I’ve submitted corrections to Vice et al for that, but have heard no response yet.)

    Video Presentation

    A video presentation about the below is being produced. Make sure you subscribe to The Black Vault’s YouTube channel for future announcements!

    Entire CIA UFO Collection CD-ROM (2,780 Pages)

    The links below offer two downloads. The contents of the original CD-ROM, as received, which is the multi-page .tif files (not searchable) with corresponding text files which are largely useless.

    The second link is the converted records, wherein The Black Vault converted each .tif file to .pdf, and made it searchable. This is, by far, the more popular way of downloading and searching, but both are available for download.

    [​IMG] Original CIA UFO Collection CD-ROM Contents [149MB] – This is the entire collection, zipped up, with zero processing. This is in its original form.

    [​IMG] CIA UFO Collection CD-ROM Contents – Searchable .pdf Conversions – [342MB] – This .zip file contains all of the above files, however, they have been converted to searchable .pdf documents. Keep in mind, searchable .pdfs are NOT perfect. Many of these documents are poorly photocopied, so the computer can only “see” so much to convert for searching. However, through various tests, the search capability is MUCH better than the above CD contents with only .txt outputs.

    Some good links there Nivek - apparently the CIA now claim 'they have provided all the information on UAP they have' but not sure if they've ever been truthful when it comes to the UFO subject.

    UFO lawyer Peter Gersten makes some good points at the beginning of this vid about certain CIA UFO documents which will probably never see the light of day:




    Also thought Terry Hansen made some relevant points in this vid about their 'behind the scenes' role in supposedly impartial government UFO investigations:




    Always had a lot of respect for John Greenewald Junior though and it's a bit of an old one but thought this presentation was a very interesting one.



    Cheers.

    Yes lots of already released and lots heavily redacted mate - also seems there's a subtle focus on incidents with dubious heritage.

    Don't want to sound too cynical but it wouldn't be the first time and probably just more headline fodder for the ongoing public relations exercise (just like GCHQ's attempts on the 'British X files').

    Here's an interesting one from back in the day - apparently the Assistant Director Office of Scientific Intelligence was confirming 'global monitoring and intercept orders for UFOs'.




    Other docos:

    Ufologie - FOIA declassified documents

    UFO-Related Documentation in PDF Format

    The Black Vault -Government Document Archive

    UFO Evidence - Government UFO Documents

    Cheers.

    Recent vid from JGJ where he clears a few things up about the document release and discusses things like 'the illusion of transparency'.

    The Emenegger-Sandler UFO Landing Film Conspiracy - UFO Insight ... not sure just how much in this interesting article that doesn't need an accompanying dose of salt? ... but it sure is an interesting proposition and serves to highlight the CIA's influence is on all aspects of public knowledge ... even in the entertainment industry.


    ...could this be a tiny portion of a larger real planned UFO contact film? ... or is it the landing lights from an F-4 Phantom approaching a runway, as sceptics claim? ... either way, i'll bet someone at the CIA knows.:Whistle:

    Cheers.
