Over 500,000 Still Classified & Still Restricted Military Documents have recently been obtained through FOIA from the 1920s to the early 1990s.
Very few of these documents have been released to the public.


>>> In response to a Freedom of Information Act request by researcher Michael Ravnitzky, the Air Force Historical Research Agency - which maintains one of the largest repositories of US military historical documents - released in early 2001 a list of its still-classified and still-restricted documents. This unprecedented database contains information on well over half a million documents held by the agency.

The list was released on a cumbersome data cartridge and stored in an awkward data format. The Memory Hole's tech guru Brett Milner has laboriously extracted and converted this massive file into a series of more manageable Excel spreadsheets.

The 550,000+ documents are identified by call numbers, title, date, author, etc.; they include reports, memos, directives, histories, daily operations reports, oral histories, interviews, situation reports, intelligence summaries, speeches, chronologies, logs, minutes, briefings, correspondence, press clippings, newsletters, photos, slides, audiotapes, and more. We have spotted documents that date back to the 1920s and some as recent as the early 1980s 1990s (even through the FOIA request asked the agency to limit the list to documents more than 20 years old.)

Among the many, many areas covered are World War II, the Vietnam War (including Laos and Cambodia), the Korean War, the Cold War, the Balkans, Desert Storm, specific aircraft and weapons systems, histories of bases and squadrons, accidents, nuclear weapons, chemical and biological warfare, space exploration, satellites, UFOs, NATO, and NORAD.


This excerpt I have quoted is from an article provided by The Memory Hole. If any readers wish to read the article in it's entirety, also with links provided to download any or all of the documents that may be of interest or of help to you, please follow this link: Many Still Classified and Still Restricted Military Documents

Well, people - happy reading. That is... if you can go through it without becoming either very angry, very nauseaus, both or otherwise.

Just FYI if interested.

Have a great evening.....(really, I mean that!)
