The National Security Agency has released a document stamped "Top Secret Umbra". That is the highest most sensitive classified communication intelligence. The document does not so much speak about UFO's in particular, moreover, it talks about the communication between people who report the UFO's.
There is one question that persistently circles the community of Unidentified Flying Object true-believers: If the government has nothing to hide, UFO fans often ask, then why is it keeping so many UFO records under lock and key?

“Well, it turns out that the government does have something to hide, but it has nothing to do with extraterrestrials,” said Steven Aftergood, director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists in Washington, D.C.

A document has surfaced that had been stamped “Top Secret Umbra” — the codeword for the highest, most sensitive category of communications intelligence.

It does not bring to light any of the juicy info we crave but it still is a interesting story for people that are interested in this sort of stuff.

I find this kinda neat for non-UFO reasons - the file speaks about the way that government organizations handle situations when public communications are beyond their control:

The titles of NSA-related UFO documents that are noted in the declassified document are intriguing, such as UFO Hypothesis and Survival Questions.

Another title cited is UFO’s and the Intelligence Community Blind Spot to Surprise or Deceptive Data. In this seven-page, undated, unofficial draft of a monograph authored by an unnamed NSA employee, the author reportedly points out what he considers to be “a serious shortcoming” in the NSA’s communications intelligence (COMINT) interception and reporting procedures. That is, “the inability to respond correctly to surprising information or deliberately deceptive data.”

The unidentified author uses the UFO phenomenon to illustrate his belief that the inability of the U.S. intelligence community to process this type of unusual data adversely affects U.S. intelligence gathering capabilities.

So, basically, they're saying that their propagandizing skills need some dusting off.

This article is definitely worth a read. Cool find.
