Have you heard of “The Vault“? This site is an FBI record library, so-to-speak. It’s like the FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) located in one spot so research oriented folks like you and I can go in and sift through tons of (now made public) data.
The categories range from Civil Rights, Counter-terrorism, and even Unexplained Phenomenon. I guess the show, The X-Files wasn’t such a stretch after all. But I already knew that. Pretty awesome!
The official description – The Vault is our new electronic reading room, containing more than 2,000 documents that have been scanned from paper into digital copies so you can read them in the comfort of your home or office.
Included here are more than 25 new files that have been released to the public but never added to this website; dozens of records previously posted on our site but removed as requests diminished; and files from our previous electronic reading room.
By the way, you know what’s ironic? We elect our leaders (actually the electoral college elects our leaders for us) and there are TONS of government branches with their own FOIA sites. Heck, even the National Endowment of the Arts has their own FOIA section. Are you kidding me? Are we like slave children working for our master teachers? Scary!!!
Well, not to go off topic too much, I understand that perhaps some secrets need to be kept in order to keep a well-ran society. But we’ve gone off the deep end with our economic machine and our growing war in the Middle East. God knows what secrets are being kept from us. I’ve heard of bills being passed that are thousands of pages long. Bills that our “elected” leaders don’t even read. I wonder how many secrets are being kept from us. Thousands? Millions? More? DANG!!!
Anyways, if you need a new site to visit then check out, The Vault!
