The CIA has released never-before-seen UFO photos, top-secret files of UFOs, and 10 tips on how to investigate UFO sightings with the apparent goal of persuading others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity. While in the past the agency has been criticized for trying to silence UFO conspiracy theorists and trying to cover up any evidence of aliens, the CIA is now actually promoting UFOs and aliens. Reading the official statement provided by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency makes one wonder, what is the government really up to?
As Techworm writes on January 27,” the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has decided to release hundreds of X-files-like UFO documents on their website, a moment that UFO fans all over the world have been waiting for.” Can UFO enthusiasts be hopeful that the government has had a wakeup call?
On its website, the CIA writes on January 21, 2016: “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.”
The CIA’s UFO photos and files, which are available to the public as pdf documents, are being broken down into two major categories: The top five CIA documents that Mulder would love to get his hands on and the top five CIA documents that Scully would love to get her hands on.
To make sure that everyone was aware that the CIA is supporting the “X-Files,” the CIA even went on Twitter to share some of the photos and its newly released documents.
In addition to its unusual interest in the “X-Files,” the CIA also published 10 Tips When Investigating a Flying Saucer. The 10 tips, which are being explained in detail by the CIA, are listed below:
1. Establish a Group To Investigate and Evaluate Sightings
2. Determine the Objectives of Your Investigation
3. Consult With Experts
4. Create a Reporting System To Organize Incoming Cases
5. Eliminate False Positives
6. Develop Methodology To Identify Common Aircraft and Other Aerial Phenomena Often Mistaken for UFOs
7. Examine Witness Documentation
8. Conduct Controlled Experiments
9. Gather and Test Physical and Forensic Evidence
10. Discourage False Reporting
In response to the CIA’s release of the UFO photos, its tips on how to investigate UFO sightings, and the agency’s efforts to promote the “X-Files,” some Twitter commentators point out that it would be nice to have more current CIA reports or photos of UFOs or aliens. As one reviewer points out, “unfortunately there is no such thing as actual X-Files at the FBI, would be exceptionally cool if there was though.”
