2 Million Pages Of CIA Declassified ‘Black Vault’ Documents About UFOs Now Available Online

The Black Vault, privately run archive of declassified documents, has published a downloadable archive of a collection of CIA related UFO records.


The Central Intelligence Agency declassified a massive trove of UFO documents, and now you can access everything that the CIA has made available publicly. The gigantic release of approximately 2.2 million pages of previously state-owned secrets about unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) were released months before the Pentagon was due to brief Congress on all they know about UFOs.

Included in the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief bill that President Donald Trump signed in December was a stipulation that intelligence agencies such as the FBI to the CIA would be required to brief Congress on “everything” they know about UFOs.

The 5,593-page document included the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, which stated:

Therefore, the Committee directs the DNI, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of such other agencies as the Director and Secretary jointly consider relevant, to submit a report within 180 days of the date of enactment of the Act, to the congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena (also known as “anomalous aerial vehicles”), including observed airborne objects that have not been identified.

“That report must contain detailed analyses of UFO data and intelligence collected by the Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force and the FBI, according to the Senate intelligence committee’s directive,” according to CNN.

The agencies will also be required to identify “potential aerospace or other threats posed by the unidentified aerial phenomena to national security, and an assessment of whether this unidentified aerial phenomena activity may be attributed to one or more foreign adversaries.”

The CIA released “everything” they know about UFOs that they were willing to share with the general public. Now, you can download all of the possible alien encounters that the CIA has documented. Everything that the CIA has revealed about UAPs can be accessed on The Black Vault.

The Black Vault, a privately run archive of declassified documents, describes itself as “Exposing government secrets… one page at a time.” The Black Vault, which has been attempting to get the files released since 1996, was finally able to get its hands on the documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FIFA). The Black Vault filed around 10,000 Freedom Of Information Acts (FOIA) requests to get the government to hand over the secret documents.

The website is operated by author and podcaster John Greenwald Jr., who said, “The CIA has made it INCREDIBLY difficult to use their records in a reasonable manner,” and it was like “pulling teeth” to get information from the government.

Greenwald told Vice that the CIA likely made the documents available in an “outdated” file format to make it “very difficult for people to see the documents, and use them, for any research purpose.”

“I feel I am achieving what I set out to do,” Greenwald said. “Easy access, to important material, for people to make up their own minds on what is going on.”

“Research by The Black Vault will continue to see if there are additional documents still uncovered within the CIA’s holdings,” Greenwald declared.

One particular document was interesting to Greenwald, who tweeted it out. “In this CIA #UFO document, the Assistant Deputy Director for Science & Technology (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.”
