X Files Are Real

This month Minnie is exploring the alphabet by digging out the unusual, often unexplained and alternative way of thinking. Stories of creatures, places and mysteries that have been passed down to us through centuries tease our imagination, live in our dreams and dare us to explore the impossible. Join Minnie each day as she discovers something unusual in the alphabet.

"As long as they keep me out of it, I could care a rats hoot!
The truth IS really out there. You can find it where special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would never think to look--on the FBI's own Web site.

The agency has been quietly posting documents on the Net about reported unidentified flying objects, alleged alien abductions, and unexplained animal mutilations. More than 1,600 pages dating back to the 1940s are now public on the site, although most contain blacked-out passages and missing names. The Freedom of Information Act have opened up files that may not reveal all there is to know about the possibility of life on other planets, but they give true believers--and even skeptics--a peek at the government's investigations into decades of mysterious sitings.

There are a total of 16,000 FOIA files online, including details about the 1962 Alcatraz Prison escape, Amelia Earhart's disappearance, and the agency's goods on Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, Elvis Presley, and Bonnie and Clyde. The agency plans to put up to 1.3 million documents on the Net.  "The institutional bureaucracy of the FBI has always been to keep anything that embarrassed the county or FBI a secret," said Dawson Rambo, who runs an extensive X-Files fan site. Andrus of the Mutual UFO Network suggested that the FBI's Web site itself could be part of a bigger government conspiracy. "The U.S. government has lied for over 50 years about UFOs and now no one wants to be put in the position to admit that," Andrus said. "So they have elected to leak the information out gradually. This latest FBI release is just part of that tactic."

One thing that we still have not learned after the freedom of information act has opened up files for the public is, "What really did happen to John F. Kennedy?" It seems that information is so devastating that a whole Generation has to die out before the truth is unveiled. Do you believe we have been visited by an alien life form? What do you think happened to JFK?

Hope everyone has a great week-end!

Ooh I must check this site out. I'm pretty sure there is life on other planets, and I'm sure they must have visited us, why all this trouble to cover it up if they haven't :)

Wow, that's remarkable. I totally want to check it out.

Wow! How cool! This is great reference info for stories. The whole Area 51 thing is really fascinating. I'm really skeptical when it comes to alien life forms--not that i don't believe it's possible, I just find it very uncertain. And to assume they'd be a higher intelligence feels more of a fantasy. But I love dreaming about it. :)

Men in black? I'll have to check this out when the challenge is over!

Laura Marcella said...

Hello, Siv! Hmm, maybe JFK, Elvis, and Marilyn were in cahoots. They're probably together laughing at all of us somewhere in their own Xanadu. ;)

Have a lovely weekend and happy A to Z!!

I love conspiracy theories. Perhaps I should take a visit to the FBI's site. Hehe!

I do think aliens have visited or at least something has been going on. I'm not sure about JFK. There are so many theories.

Claire Hennessy said...

My son is fascinated with aliens, as am I. I definitely believe in other life forms on other planets. There's no way we are the only ones - how awful would that be?! I will go check out that link. Thanks.

What did we ever do before Al Gore invented the internet? I'd heard of X files but never knew what they actually are.
