CIA Have Released 13 Million Pages Of Declassified Documents, Some Very Controversial
The CIA has just released around 13 million pages of declassified documents online, including UFO sightings.
Following ongoing efforts from advocates fighting for freedom of information and a lawsuit that was filed against the CIA, they decided to release the millions of documents which included files on the psychic experiments from the Stargate programme which has been of huge interest to conspiracy theorists for a long time.
The released archive, which was previously only accessible at the National Archives in Maryland, contains almost 800,000 files. Within the files are also hundreds of thousands of pages of intelligence analysis and science research and development, as reported by the BBC.
Also within the documents are the papers of Henry Kissinger, who was a secretary of state under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, as well as details about the Stargate Project which examined psychic powers and extrasensory perception and was of particular interest to conspiracy theorists. Within the Stargate documents was also the records of testing on celebrity psychic Uri Geller in 1973, which described how he was able to replicate pictures that were being drawn in another room, leading researchers to record that he “demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner”.

Whilst the majority of this information, which also included details of reported flying saucers, has been available for public access since the mid-1990s, it has been incredible difficult to access.
The records have been available since their release in the 1990s at the National Archives in Maryland, although the public could only gain access to them from four physical computers in the library, and only between the specific times of 09:00 and 16:30 each day.

There have previously been lawsuits filed against the CIA, urging them to release the information. MuckRock, a non-profit freedom of information group, sued the CIA to force it to upload the collection, in a process which took more than two years.
A journalist called Mike Best also crowd-funded more than $15,000 at the same time, in order to travel to the library in Maryland and print out all of the archives and publicly upload them. This was in an attempt to put pressure on the CIA to release the archives themselves to the public.
Mike Best wrote in a blog post, “By printing out and scanning the documents at CIA expense, I was able to begin making them freely available to the public and to give the agency a financial incentive to simply put the database online”.
The announcement that the CIA were to publish the material came in November, and the entire declassified archive of documents is now available for public access on the CIA Library website.
