More British X-Files Released!


www.forteantimes.com

The facts about some of Britain’s best-known UFO myst­eries are revealed in the latest collection of ‘X-files’ released by Britain’s National Archives. A total of 18 files containing 5,000 pages of material were released on 5 August and can be downloaded free of charge from the National Archives website for one month.

These files contain hundreds of letters addressed to the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and politicians that cover every conceivable UFO and conspiracy rumour circulating just before the millennium: UFO crashes, alien abductions, animal mutilations, demonic entities, crop circles, remote viewing, mind-control and government conspiracies.

The article goes on to say


They provide a unique historical snapshot of the extra­ordinary beliefs, legends and rumours that were held and spread by ufo­logists around the time of the 50th anniversary of the birth of the subject, in 1997. These files contain hundreds of letters addressed to the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and politicians that cover every conceivable UFO and conspiracy rumour circulating just before the millennium: UFO crashes, alien abductions, animal mutilations, demonic entities, crop circles, remote viewing, mind-control and government conspiracies.





RAF Rudloe Manor also features heavily in the files as the obsessive focus of UFO conspiracy rumours during the 1990s. Some ufologists became so convinced the government was hiding wreckage of crashed flying saucers that attempts were made to break into the facility. Other stories spread that a secret MoD ‘Men In Black’ unit was based at Rudloe, from where it investigated close encounters and conducted secret research.





Other highlights from the files include copies of official papers from 1974 discussing the Berwyn Mountains UFO ‘crash’ in North Wales. This story was resurrected by ufo­logists at the time of that ‘flying saucer’ 50th anniversary and quickly became transformed into Britain’s answer to the Roswell incident.




This is great news for UFO researchers as apparently the MoD received 609 UFO reports, 343 letters from the public and 22 inquiries from MPs and should provide some very interesting reading indeed. Im sure many people are going to have different theories why this info is being released now.

There are 34 files in total ranging in size from 9mb to a huge 81mb. The documents can be downloaded in PDF format at The National Archives website for just one month, so get them while you can.

Why not start your own UFO research by reading Dr David Clarke's guide to the files (PDF, 144kb). Discover the history of UK government UFO investigations and find out where the new files fit in.

Thanks Angelic Resurrection , this isnt the full disclosure that everyone is hoping for but its the next best thing.


"One of the most interesting documents in the files is a piece from an intelligence officer, who basically says that despite thousands of reports that they've received since the Second World War, they've never done any study or spent any money or time on the subject, and they say that people just won't believe that when they find out."

The internal memo from a DI55 [defence intelligence] wing commander dated 5 July 1995 says the media's portrayal of DI55 as a "defender of the Earth against the alien menace" is "light years from the truth."

The file shows the officer feared that if intelligence's interest in UFOs was to be revealed it could cause "disbelief and embarrassment since few people will believe the truth that lack of funds and higher priorities have prevented any study of the thousands of reports received."
