CIA Releases Declassified Files of Investigations into UFO Sightings

The CIA released declassified files of never-before-seen footage of investigations into reported UFO sightings.

The investigations were posted  on the CIA’s website.

Conspiracy theorists have long claimed that the CIA was involved in a massive coverup of UFO sightings to hide evidence of aliens.

The declassified documents are from the late 1940s and 1950s.

The documents include a sighting in New Jersey, where a resent said he and a friend spotted and captured footage of a disc-shaped object in the sky.

“Below you will find five documents we think X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity,” the CIA wrote.

The documents show no hard evidence of UFOs, but the records do reveal that the CIA was interested in sightings from around the globe.

Back in the late 1940s, FBI J. Edgar Hoover had more than communists on his mind.

An FBI memo shows on April 4, 1949, FBI agents in Utah sent an “urgent” cable to the Hoover saying an Army guard at the Ogden Supply Depot, a Logan policeman and a Utah Highway Patrol officer in Mantua, Utah, spotted a UFO over Utah that exploded, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

The cable, according to the paper, said the various people, who were miles apart from one another, “saw a silver colored object high up approaching the mountains at Sardine Canyon” that “appeared to explode in a rash of fire. Several residents at Trenton … [reported] seeing what appeared to be two aerial explosions followed by falling object.”

The paper reported that other FBI documents showed the agency considered that UFOs might be legit. The documents were posted on the FBI website.
