UFOs and the Pentagon's 'D.I.A.'
"Although the government professes to have had no official interest in UFOs since the Air Force closed down Project Blue Book in 1969, since that time a number of classified messages about UFO incidents have been sent from overseas posts to the DIA and then relayed to the other agencies. Sometimes the UFO messages have gone to the White House as well".
Is the Pentagon's DIA the major clearing house for UFO reports within the U.S. Government...even thought they completely deny taking an interest in UFOs since 1969 - according to declassified UFO documents it looks like the answer could be yes.
The DIA works for the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Director of Central Intelligence and it's annual budget even back in the 1970's was said to be an estimated $100 million per annum - good job because all the ink they use in blacking out UFO documents must cost a fortune.
The BlackVault's John Greenewald Junior makes some pertinent points below about DIA UFO documents from the 1970's and upwards containing witness drawings, sighting reports, craft descriptions etc.. and also brings up the subject of routing and transmittal codes which shows which specific Intelligence Agencies and Military bases are being sent the report (even though in many cases they completely deny having them).
The Defense Intelligence Agency's UFO Files.
The Defense Intelligence Agency has hundreds upon hundreds of blacked out investigations into the UFO phenomenon. With date ranges of all the way back in the early 60's when the Defense Intelligence Agency came into operation, heading straight through the 70's, 80's, and well into the 90's.
Yet, heading back to what the government says, and this statement does come straight from the Pentagon, "no government agency has taken an interest in investigating [UFOs] since the closure of Blue Book in 1969." Something does not line up, because here we are, faced with hundreds of documents slamming right through that 1969 cut off date, and going right into being in just the last few years.
So now the question arises is, "What is in these files?" Well, to give a little background to this subject, I have been doing research now approaching my fourth year in investigating UFOs and many other subjects through the Freedom of Information Act. I have never seen documents this blacked out, to date. I've amassed over 18,000 pages of material, and the UFO documents from the Defense Intelligence Agency from just the last ten years, is the heaviest blacked out material I have seen.
Mostly withheld due to national security concerns, the documents talk about many UFO sightings and events from many different countries. Firstly, in Jordan, civilians talk about seeing unidentified lights from the suburbs of Amman. This incident occurred in July of 1990. One small segment of a paragraph of a four page document was visible. All the rest was blacked out.
Secondly, a UFO sighting in Hong Kong just north of Chongqing. This was an incident which told of a UFO about 20m long, with orange and pale green lights. It flew silently at an altitude of about 50 m from southwest to northeast and disappeared in three minutes. All other information in this document was completely blacked out.
Thirdly, there was a document, which came with thousands of questions, and not one answer. A report, with many portions withheld at the agency, of a UFO conference in Beijing. The report briefly talks about possibly hosting the world's first UFO conference, in hopes that this world conference would be in China. Nine lines in this entire document were readable, the other large paragraphs were entirely blacked out.
The list goes on and on..
Documents, which have not even been talked about, are those from the range of years in the 1970's. The 1970's had the most cases investigated, and some may even say these were the most interesting.
Complete with drawings, sighting reports, craft descriptions and places, these reports were not as heavily blacked out as those from the 90's, and can be read with actual understanding. Yet one thing stuck out in many different documents, and that was the routing codes and transmittal codes. These are codes on the top of each document, which shows which agencies received the report, and in turn has copies of them. Many of these UFO reports at Air Force Bases as one of the receiving agencies yet on the contrary, that exact base told me they had no documents on UFOs. Why don't these stories and facts line up? The other thing that sticks out is the amount of agencies, which received these reports. If there is no interest in UFOs, why are they collected at all?
