Saarbrucken (Germany) – Since several decades German government officials claim, that there never was an official interest in investigating or studying the topic of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). But now, the editor of the German news-blog on frontier sciences and the paranormal "www.grenzwissenschaft-aktuell.de" (GreWi.de), Andreas Muller, was able to access formerly secret UFO-files compiled by the German foreign secret intelligence agency "Bundesnachrichtendienst" (BND), which tells now a complete different story. Background It was in 2008 that the German Federal Minister of the Interior of that time, Dr. Wolfgang Schaeuble, repeated what other officials said several times before over the last decades, when they were asked about an official interest of German governments and the military's interest into the topic of UFOs and its investigation, by saying: "… I have no knowledge of any official agency, institution or body that deals with or investigates sightings of unknown flying objects, so-called UFOs. Furthermore I have no knowledge of any such officials projects whatsoever." The Files The newly revealed UFO-files by the BND now contradict this official version with a whole file-set of 67 pages already titled with "UFO". The content of this files are "sightings of unidentified flying objects over the border zones between West Germany and the German Democratic Republic (GDR) and Chechoslovakia (CSSR)". The files can be found under the keyword "UFOs" within the German Federal Archives ("Bundesarchiv") based in the City of Koblenz. However, due to the fact that all documents that get released into these archives are automatically protected and embargoed for 30 years according to the German Federal Archive Law, this files are said to be protected and closed until the year 2021. However, you can ask for such files to get released before that date. And if somebody already went through this process successfully beforehand, such files will be open also for later applicants. Likely due to the fact that the whole file also includes non-UFO-related parts about the former border between West and East Germany, someone else already got permission to view this file, which is why now the whole file – including the extensive chapter on UFOs – was already open to be viewed for everybody. However, so far the crux of the matter was, that this fact is neither officially mentioned nor listed. Actually the files are still listed today as "closed until 2021" – and seemingly nobody took the trouble to ask for its current status. Until know… Read More at Ashtar Command.
