#UFO #Alien – Outrage as MoD censor ’British UFO X-Files’ sparking alien cover-up theories : The reports, dubbed the “British X-Files”, were due to be released but have been recalled from the National Archives by the Ministry of Defence. A National Archives spokesman said the files contained “information which is covered by FOI exemption”.
This has fuelled conspiracy theories that the top-secret documents hold sensitive information on the UK’s dealings with alien life. Alien hunters believe the reports, which have been held by the MoD for more than 30 years, could contain information on the infamous Rendlesham UFO case and other mysterious sightings.
The British X-Files were due to be released in March, but have met with repeated delays. A spokesman for the Information Department of the National Archives in London spoke to German paranormal and science newsblog Grenzwissenschaft-Aktuell.
They wrote in an email: “Unfortunately, following the transfer of files to The National Archives (TNA) in June, additional information which is covered by FOI exemption was identified, resulting in the files being returned to MoD in August.
“This has delayed the release of these files. MoD are now ensuring that all information that is covered by an exemption is identified.” The National Archives will meet in November to look at information which may have been removed before considering publication.
