130,000 pages of UFO investigation docs now online
The truth is out there - 130,000 pages of it. A massive amount of U.S. Air Force documents on alleged UFO sightings and investigations just went live on the Internet, thanks to this guy.
"I believe the documentation proves there is a cover-up going on. ... There's absolutely something out there."
That's John Greenewald - USA Today dubs him a "UFO enthusiast" and says he's spent almost 20 years filing Freedom of Information Act requests to obtain government files on UFOs.
He's now posted the documents on his website, The Black Vault. They show that from 1947 to 1969, the Air Force documented more than 12,000 strange sightings, and 701 of them remain "unidentified."
It appears the cases were first documented after the alleged alien crash-landing in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
The investigation and documentation of these sightings was called Project Blue Book. But the U.S. government said years ago it would no longer be looking into such cases, for a few reasons.
1) Because they didn't pose any threat to national security, 2) because there was no evidence of any extraterrestrial beings, and 3) funding.
But Greenewald doesn't buy that the investigations stopped. The docs are available online for all to see - you have to see to believe after all, right?
