Background – Original NSA Release
NSA was a target of one of my original FOIA requests, which yielded the below
results. Some of these records were one of the first documents I scanned onto
The Black Vault back in 1996, and are archived here as a timestamp for what the
NSA was releasing then vs. now.
The “Missing” UFO Files
below documents are the UFO records released today by the NSA.
Years after The Black Vault put the UFO records (as scanned above) – the NSA
added them to their website as well. One interested document of note, the
the “Yeates Affidavit.”
1980, the NSA was involved in Civil Action No. 80-1562, “Citizens Against
Unidentified Flying Objects Secrecy v. National Security Agency”. Documents
related to that litigation are below, and marked with “*”. “XXXXX” has been
inserted in a title if a portion of the title has been deleted prior to
release. During this court case, the judge was given an “in camera” Top Secret
clearance to see the explanation on why the NSA was not releasing the UFO
documentation, and why the majority of it, were to remain blacked out.
judge decided in the NSA’s favor, and allowed the information to remain
classified. As the years went by, the NSA released the COMINT records, but most
of them had only a few words visible per page. The rest, was largely redacted
using white out (less of an impact than black ink).
July of 2013, I requested a Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR) of ALL of
these records from the NSA. What this means, is that you can request an agency
to review a document that was classified many years ago, but may not be
classified anymore, and hopefully, if you are lucky, they will release more of
they claim they can not find any of the unredacted original reports for a
review. That amounts to literally HUNDREDS of pages of classified UFO material
– that has mysteriously vanished into thin air. They did find the Yeates
Affidavit, which they did review.

The Yeates Affidavit – 2014
Yeates Affidavit Release version in July 2014, a year later. This is
the most unredacted version that I know of, however, as of May 20, 2016, almost
two YEARS after I was successful in getting it reviewed, the NSA still has an
older, much more redacted version, that they release to the public. This is a
clear and blatant disregard for transparency to the general public. If the NSA
releases this information in a FOIA Reading Room online, they should inform the
public they are not giving them the whole and complete story, as there is much
more information to be found in the document.

NSA still releases the above record on their website, with complete disregard
that my MDR was successful in getting a much less redacted version released to
the public — SEEN
Communications Intelligence (COMINT) reports [broken into sizable parts for
viewing]. These COMINT reports are what the NSA claims to have lost – and are
no longer available for review. So, according to them, this important and
valuable information has been lost forever.
