UK's X-Files to be released within 8 months


Posted on Sunday, 5 July, 2015 | Comment icon 35 comments

The British government has confirmed that several more UFO documents are still on track to be released.
The secretive files have remained a subject of controversy and debate in recent years due to the fact that their release date has been repeatedly pushed back for no discernible reason.

The documents are of particular interest to UFO investigators as they are believed to include new information about the 1980 Rendlesham Forest UFO case in which several US Air Force personnel witnessed a strange object in the woods near RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk.

There is still light at the end of the tunnel however as last week Defence Minister Earl Howe maintained that the files would be getting released to the National Archives within eight months.

"The latest estimate of when the 18 files will be delivered to the National Archives is before March 2016," he said in response to a query about the issue from Lord Black of Brentwood. "The National Archives will make the necessary judgement about when they release these files to the public."

His statement happened to come just in time for World UFO Day on July 2nd.

"This massive delay will have conspiracy theorists up in arms. It looks like the MoD is stalling," former MoD UFO researcher Nick Pope had previously stated in response to the issue. "The suspicion will be that there's a bombshell in these files and that the Ministry does not know how to handle it."

"I can understand why conspiracy theorists will be angry and suspicious."

I grew up during the Cold War when global hatred was focused into two camps (the hatred is still there, but it is more fragmented just now). The hatred back then was so powerful that the Third World War could have kicked off at any moment. The governments of both sides - allegedly - knew all about UFOs and alien visitations. Yet both sides - allegedly - conspired with one another to keep this secret from we the people, who were so unimportant we were about to be nuked in the name of political ideology.

When one begins to look in earnest into early UFOlogy they can't help but notice he unavoidable correlation between the Cold War, the paranoia that the Cold War incited and UFO investigations. Somewhere along the way aliens got thrown into the mix and it all went down hill from there. There is no way in hell that a Cold War Russia would collude with the US in anything. The Cuban Missile Crisis was a poignant example of the unwillingness of Russia to concede even an inch to the West and that incident had the entire world on the edge of their seats. In a lot of ways the mistrust during the Cold ... [More]

This is what I forsee after release- 10+ TV documentaries of the same released info with "expert" comments and commentary and reconstructions of the documents events that by the end of the shows leave a blank believe or not who cares. Millions of ppl guessing, debating and clogging up forums and blogging and youtubing their theories on the documents and conspiracy theorising. The documents being same old rubbish blacked out and revealing nothing new, only released to wet nurse the disclosure now protesters.

Well, regardless of whether America or Russia are getting all the public attention on UFO matters, I continue to think that other countries could have records of revealing things that happened, one-of-a-kind artifacts and who knows what else?

When did both conspire to keep the UFO secret? Who was involved and how? Does not sound like the America and Russia that were racing to the moon to be honest. I was using irony!!! The Ufologists would have us believe the US and USSR were secretly conspiring to hide what they knew about UFOs, whilst in public fighting a Cold War and competing in a race to the Moon. Of course they weren't conspiring about UFOs! From now on I will stay literal!

Well in all fairness did Kennedy not order the CIA to share information on ufos with Russia? Keep in mind not saying they where hiding aliens. It seems they also where trying to figure out this phenomenon.

Nick Pope tells us he's a retired MOD UFO expert, and he's looked into the Rendlesham incident. I think I have heard him say he conducted "a cold case review" of the Rendlesham incident, so he should know if there's anything juicy with regard that case to be revealed... shouldn't he? C'mon Nick... is any of it worth waiting for...
