MoD Files Make UFOs History
David Clarke

The ninth collection of UFO files, released by the UK government
on 12 July, takes the chronology full circle back to the MoD’s
decision to ‘make UFOs history’.

A guide to the highlights of the 25 files can be found on the
The National Archives UFO page here and a more detailed analysis
can be found on my UFO files #9 page here. I’ve blogged about
the files as a guest on the archives blogpage here.

The documents reveal how influential my Freedom of Information
campaign actually was in the decision to end decades of official
secrecy by opening the files to the public.

Within the 6,700 pages is a UFO briefing prepared for former
Prime Minister Tony Blair by the Ministry of Defence in 1998.
New Labour’s manifesto included a commitment to a Freedom of
Information bill and UFOlogist Nick Redfern took the initiative
in a letter to No.10 that urged Mr Blair to ‘consider making
available for public scrutiny all of the many and varied UFO
reports’ collected by the government since the end of the Second
World War [DEFE 24/1987/1]
