CIA uploads millions of declassified files

The documents cover everything from UFO sightings to government-backed remote viewing experiments.
The files, which were released following a concerted campaign by freedom of information advocates, have now been made available for the public to view online - here.

Among them are documents pertaining to top secret programs such as the Stargate Project, a controversial and long-rumored US Army unit established in 1978 at Fort Meade, Maryland.

The project primarily centered around remote viewing - an alleged psychic ability enabling individuals to observe distant locations through the power of the mind.

One series of memos details how even celebrity spoon-bender Uri Gellar had undergone testing to determine whether or not he had psychic abilities. The results, which saw Gellar reproduce images drawn in another room, seemingly lead the researchers to conclude that he had "demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner."

Also among the documents are references to a number of UFO sightings as well as details of a government spying program that would have involved looking at the contents of sealed letters.

"None of this is cherry-picked," said CIA spokeswoman Heather Fritz Horniak.

"It's the full history. It's good and bads."

Some of these are quite interesting  https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/DOC_0000015277.pdf Many reports on triangular type vessels with a light on each end. Can def find some good info here, although much of it is old and hard to read.

Good find. Possibly an experimental aircraft? The bit about the conductor closing the blinds and nodding toward the back of the train is a head scratcher.

You think this is some kind of believer site? Well, you thinking is wrong.

I'm sure all sides of a debate were welcomed on this site.

I do think many of these sightings are experimental aircrafts. With the amount of creating going on in both the government and private sector I'm sure there are a ton of cars/trucks/aircrafts/boats/drones being made that we have never before seen.

Agree 100%. The name of the site is "Unexplained Mysteries". If it was called "Proof of the Paranormal" that would be different.  I come here to try offer possible explanations and listen to other's insight on unexplained things. Those ideas get discussed. But if I can't (or won't) back up a claim, I may find other's attitudes dismissive. It's a fair cop. Just my .02

Who knows. Sometime things get released by mistake. Thing is, you have to read the documents very closely to spot them.
