CIA Releases Hundreds of Real Life 'X-Files' on UFO Sightings
The UFO documents, which date primarily from the 1940s and 1950s, are among hundreds that the CIA declassified in 1978.

If you are a fan of the hit series X-Files you already know the truth is out there.  Now the CIA is making it official. The CIA recently released a declassified collection of UFO related documents that both skeptics and believers will find very interesting.

The CIA declassified hundreds of documents in 1978 detailing its investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). The documents are dated mostly from the late 1940s and 1950s.

The CIA blog post says the following.

“To help navigate the vast amount of data contained in our FOIA UFO COLLECTION, we’ve decided to highlight a few documents both skeptics and believers will find interesting. 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. We also pulled five documents we think his skeptical partner, Agent Dana Scully, could use to prove there is a scientific explanation for UFO sightings.”

Another post on the CIA’s website stated the following.

“Most of the documents concern CIA cables reporting unsubstantiated UFO sightings in the foreign press and intra-Agency memos about how the Agency handled public inquiries about UFO sightings.”

The Roberston Panel concluded that 90 percent of sighting could be attributed to meteorological conditions and recommended creating, “an integrated program designed to reassure the public of the total lack of evidence of Inimical forces behind the phenomenon, to train personnel to recognize and reject false indications quickly and effectively, and to strengthen regular channels for the evaluation of and prompt reaction to true indications of hostile measures.”
