X-Files online…really?

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

FBI.gov: “we are announcing a revamping of our electronic reading room—renamed “The Vault”—which contains more than two thousand documents that have been scanned from paper into digital copies so you can read them in the comfort of your own home or office. Included here are more than 25 new files that have been released to the public but never added to this website; dozens of records previously posted on our site but removed as requests diminished over time; and files carried over from our previous electronic reading room.”

The Roswell UFO case is among the documents as you can see here.

The ‘original’ (in quotes since you never know what is really original, eh? 😉 ) document is dated July 22 1947, and has the word ‘Roswell’ written across the top. It mentions that a ‘flying disc’ was recovered near Roswell, New Mexico.

Apparently there was no extra-terrestrial life found, since: “The disc is hexagonal in shape and was suspended from a balloon by cable” and “The object found resembles a high-altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector.”…too bad, or are you supporting Fox Mulder and his catchphrase ‘The Truth is Out There‘?
