This is what he said:
"It was a vaulted area and not everybody could get in it," Brandon told The Huffington Post. "One day, I was looking around in there and reading some of the titles that were mostly hand-scribbled summations of what was in the boxes. And there was one box that really caught my eye. It had one word on it: Roswell."
Now I have also been in underground vaults looking for information of various kinds, and I could look through the boxes since I had the right kind of ID. There must have been tens of thousands of boxes of all kinds of classified stuff sitting on the shelves there, just stored away in the same files that had been packed in the boxes long before. A lot of that stuff was just long-forgotten and no one had ever looked at it again but me.
These were very large vaults, too, behind heavy steal doors, but I was allowed to look through the things I wanted. A lot of the time, I knew more about the subject and the right locations to find the files than the people in charge of the vaults.
I'd like to tell you that I would go down there just to look up all the old Top Secret UFO files--which do indeed exist by the way--but I was working on other things.
I can only imagine the millions and billions of documents around Washington that are still gathering dust in underground vaults, with no one paying the slightest attention to them any more.
