The Black Vault is an organization that seeks the release of government records and documents related to defense, intelligence and science using Freedom of Information Act filings. The organization recently secured the release from the CIA of thousands of pages of formerly classified or unavailable documents related to unidentified flying objects or unidentified aerial phenomena. The Black Vault has been seeking these records as far back as 1996. According to the site, the CIA resisted the release of documents, but finally made available a CD-ROM collection of the documents. The information, now available via the Black Vault website in PDF form, dates back decades and relates to all variety of purported sightings or investigations. It is a remarkable collection, with some documents difficult to assess given the lack of context provided by the CIA. Link to assets.
