In honor of the X-Files miniseries currently airing on Fox,
our shadowy government the CIA has highlighted some declassified "real" X-Files to throw us off the true conspiracy delight fans of the supernatural show. The CIA declassified the documents relating to UFOs in 1978, but in a blog post last week (because the CIA has a blog to keep tabs on us via cookies and other online-tracking tools communicate with the public), the agency highlighted some especially interesting selections from the declassified files.
In the blog post, the CIA noted:
...we’ve decided to highlight a few documents both skeptics and believers will find interesting. Below you will find five documents we think X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity. We also pulled five documents we think his skeptical partner, Agent Dana Scully, could use to prove there is a scientific explanation for UFO sightings.
The truth is out there; click on the links to find it.
But that's what the governments WANTS you to think. They WANT you to think that the truth is just a link-click away instead of buried in a train car in Arizona. The government WANTS you behind your computers looking at 1950s drawings of UFOs, because that stops you from LOOKING AT THE SKIES.
You can view all of the declassified documents on the CIA's page UFOs: Fact or Fiction? Even if the files seem to have logical explanations, remember, X-Philes: all lies lead to the truth.
