X-Files, Cia declassified 10 documents
Even Cia has turned to celebrate, in its own way, the return of X-Files, the cult series of the Nineties which has just been aired in the US (and in Italy on the Fox channel of Sky). Simultaneously with the broadcast of the first episode of Mulder and Scully, Cia has said on Twitter that it had declassified ten hitherto secret documents (this is the link).
The documents range from the late Forties to the late Fifties. On five of these five Mulder would have loved to get his hands on, referring: to flying saucers reported over East Germany, to the minutes of a Branch Chief’s meeting in 1952; to flying saucers reported over Spain and North Africa in 1952; to a survey of flying saucer reports and to flying saucers reported over Belgian Congo uranium mines. Please note that every event happened in 1952.
Five other documents would have liked agent Scully: a Scientific Advisory Panel on Unidentified Flying Objects in 1953; an Office Memorandum on Ufos in 1949; a memorandum to the Cia Director in 1952; a meeting of the Osi Advisory Group on Ufos, in 1953, a Memorandum for the record on flying saucers, of 1952. In none of the 10 documents Cia claims to have ever had contact with alien beings, nor that it had determined that Ufos were alien origin or that aliens are among us. By the way, the documents reflected how seriously Cia had taken the first major wave of Ufos sightings and as he feared that they could be controlled in some way by the Ussr.
