Subject: Newly Released CIA Documents On UFOs?

Hello List,

Illumination would be appreciated.

On November 4 of this year, one post to the List was Plan 9 From
Outer Space and mentioned the following:

Can somebody confirm that there are new unclassified CIA
documents and where they can be consulted?

I googled "unclassified CIA documents"+UFOs and got 71 hits
bearing the same expression "a raft of newly unclassified CIA

I figure this kind of information would be of major importance.

There was no reaction on the List.
