BBC news: The Pentagon has been running a secret multi-million dollar programme to investigate Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), US media report.
Only a small number of officials were aware of the programme, which began in 2007 and was reportedly closed in 2012.
But scientists were doubtful, stressing that unexplained happenings were not necessarily proof of alien life.
The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Programme was the brainchild of Harry Reid, a retired Democratic senator who was the Senate majority leader at the time.
He told the New York Times: “I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going. I’ve done something that no one has done before.”
Mr Reid – former senator for Nevada, home to the mythologised “Area 51” classified US Air Force base – later tweeted that the programme was a serious effort to get to truth amid “plenty of evidence to support asking the questions”.
There was already this in January: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38663522
The records include UFO sightings and psychic experiments from the Stargate programme, which has long been of interest to conspiracy theorists. [Michael: Do you remember the book Stargate Conspiracy, Lynn Picknett?]
The move came after lengthy efforts from freedom of information advocates and a lawsuit against the CIA.
The full archive is made up of almost 800,000 files.
They had previously only been accessible at the National Archives in Maryland.
The trove includes the papers of Henry Kissinger, who served as secretary of state under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, as well as several hundred thousand pages of intelligence analysis and science research and development.
Among the more unusual records are documents from the Stargate Project, which dealt with psychic powers and extrasensory perception.
Those include records of testing on celebrity psychic Uri Geller in 1973, when he was already a well-established performer.
