Who better than the CIA to help you become a good UFO researcher. Check out ten tips from the CIA on hot to become the best.
Governmental agencies such as the CIA and FBI have studied the UFO phenomenon for decades. While most of their documents are probably tucked away in some sort of secret underground archive, there are some materials that have been made available to the public. From these documents, we can say that nearly all intelligence agencies in the US have had an interest in the UFO related phenomenon and their studies have come up with interesting results.
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) released hundreds of declassified documents about alien visitations and the UFO phenomenon just in time for the premiere of the new season of popular TV series X-Files. This timing is not weird given the fact that the CIA plays part as a ‘counselor’ in many Hollywood productions, something that the agency has even admitted online.
The CIA has picked up a great experience in UFO investigations over the last couple of centuries. One of the best examples is Project Blue Book. Even though the Central Intelligence Agency wasn’t directly involved in the project, the agency did play a very important role in UFO investigations in the 1940s and 1950s, investigations which led to the creation of several theories, studies papers and programs that were involved in finding the truth behind the mysterious phenomenon.
Interestingly, former CIA Chief Historian, Gerald K. Haines, wrote an in-depth study looking at the Agency’s role in the investigations of the UFO phenomenon for Studies in Intelligence. In Haines article, “CIA’s Role in the Study of UFOs, 1947-90,” the Chief Historian says that “while the Agency’s concern over UFOs was substantial until the early 1950s, CIA has since paid only limited and peripheral attention to the phenomena.”
Project Blue Book investigated 12,618 UFO sightings over a period of two decades. Huge amounts of data were collected, researched and analyzed, and even though we can get access to the data, some ufologists believe that the truth has been hidden even though secret documentation has been declassified.
As a result, from 1947 to 1969, a total of 12, 618 sightings were reported to Project BLUE BOOK, where 90 percent of those sightings were attributed to explainable phenomena, caused by known astronomical phenomena, atmospheric or artificial (man-made) phenomenon, but out of the 12,618 sightings, 701 remain “Unidentified” meaning that there was insufficient information to assign or attribute the event to a known cause.
With over two decades of investigating the UFO phenomenon, the CIA and USAF learned a lot on how to properly conduct UFO related investigations and looking at things from another perspective, who better than the CIA and the USAF to give you tips on how to become a good UFO researcher.
