When we do the conspiracy rankings, there are a lot of different things that can climb up the charts. The JFK Assassination, whether the Moon Landing was real, chemtrails, 9/11, and others will all rank right up there. But UFOs and their existence might end up taking the top spot because of how long these sightings have been around and how the government may (or may not) be covering up its knowledge in this arena. In recent years, more and more information has been coming out along these lines to suggest folks in the upper circles of government intelligence might know a lot more about UFOs than they are letting on.
Recently, it was announced by The Black Vault that they were going to get their hands on government documents pertaining to the latter’s knowledge about UFOs and sightings. The Black Vault is a website run by John Greenewald that has worked to release government documentation surrounding possible knowledge of UFOs and extraterrestrial encounters. Greenewald had filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain some of the documents related to the June 2021 Congressional briefing that was supposed to shine more light on what the government had known about these encounters. Surprisingly, the request was filled pretty quickly and he was given heavily redacted documents. While not all of the relevant documents were released (some were given lengthy timelines on when they’d become available), what was handed over was interesting, to say the least.
It is in these documents that it appears the government has amassed quite a bit of information on what they deem to be UAP sightings. UAP or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena is the new way to say UFO, a rebranding to maybe throw people off the conspiratorial scent. Regardless, in these documents (via Futurism) it’s clear that the government has made certain distinctions when it comes to the spotting of possible UFOs in our airspace. The first is that they have deemed some of these UAPs to have similar shapes as one another. The actual shape is redacted (flying saucer maybe?) but it’s somewhat clear that there are commonalities in the individual sightings.
Additionally, there is an admission in some of the government documentation that with certain possible UFO sightings, they have seen advanced technology at work. This would be one way to explain some of the sightings by military personnel (specifically pilots and radar technicians) who’ve said that the flying patterns of different spotted objects don’t line up with conventional aerodynamics or known air and space technology. Again, it doesn’t drill all the way down into specifics because of the redactions, but it’s clear that there isn’t an easy way to explain some of what people have seen in the skies.
You can download the 23 pages of UFO documents from The Black Vault if you want to take a look for yourself. In terms of conspiracy theories, this kind of release only seems to heighten the idea that there could definitely be ETs floating around the skies above us. And the government might be more aware of their existence than they seem to be letting on.
