CADIZ (UFO INVESTIGATION AND THE C.I.A.)

An article by Gonzalo Wancha

With the declassification of millions of CIA files linked to the control of UFO sightings and paranormal phenomena around the world, several phenomena in Spain stand out, including several historical cases from Cádiz. For ufologists in the area, it is the confirmation of years of work.

The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) opened Pandora’s box in January by declassifying 2,780 new documents related to secret files. A material that, among many other topics, compiles the work of the intelligence services and the storage of information for decades, in the inhospitable climate of the Cold War.
The material, which we have accessed through The Black Vault page, contains an enormous amount of information from the investigation and monitoring around the planet during decades of “unidentified aerial phenomena”, “sightings” and testimonies.

And all thanks to the government funding bill that Trump approved in a final stage as president. The US established that the intelligence services should provide Congress with everything related to UFOs, aerospace threats or paranormal phenomena, after investigation.
So, thanks to Trump, in Spain we have verified that our territory gathered a number of paranormal phenomena with unidentified flying objects (UFO), or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) and many of them in the Bay of Cádiz and in the Campo de Gibraltar.

One of the reports takes us back to the summer of 1952, when several residents of Puerto Real (Cádiz) “saw two elongated and oval objects in the sky that were approaching each other from opposite directions,” reads the CIA document.
“When it looked like it was about to collide, both objects turned to the right, regained speed and then disappeared. Both objects flew high. They appeared grayish and appeared to be piloted.”

Almost 70 years later, we are answered by Don José Moreno, a ufologist from the Bay of Cádiz, on the phone. He was one of those who, at the time, reported and investigated the sightings. “After all, for me it is a relief that the CIA relates what happened here. We have been preaching in the desert for years, investigating and spreading these paranormal phenomena, now the CIA indicates that there was something.”
Moreno formed together with 18 other members the Parapsychological Association of Puerto Real, edited a magazine and collected all the information on sightings of flying objects in the area.
This team of researchers indicates that Cádiz has always been called a “hot zone” for paranormal activity. Now, the CIA documents are for Moreno and for many ufologists in the area an indirect recognition.

“I remember it perfectly from 52, but there were many others and, above all, later on,” Moreno says while reviewing his documentation. “When we have had more activity has been at the end of the 70s and especially in the 80s, they come in waves and we cannot specify the reasons, but statistically we register a huge activity, something that does not happen now.
A detail for skeptics, let’s not forget that the sightings of August 22, 1952 in Puerto Real occurred a year before the American naval base of Rota was installed in the Bay, so the easy explanation that they were North American flights, for now, it is ruled out … the truth is still out there.

With the arrival of mobiles and good cameras, have UFOs disappeared?

From 1947 to 1952, the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC) of the US Air Force reported some 1,500 official sighting reports, in addition to a huge volume of reports and alerts. In light of the activity and concern of the CIA, it is worth asking, are there no more sightings, why have the UFOs abandoned us?
Beyond paranormal explanations, the logical thing is to think in the historical context. Today, seeing an unidentified object flying over our heads does not lead us to think of an imminent nuclear bombardment, as it happened in the Cold War. This extreme sensitivity to the paranormal is driven by a defense mentality.
Puerto Real, Andújar, Linares, Cuenca, Palma de Mallorca… the activity reflected in the CIA documents is enormous, but it is mainly concentrated in the Cold War years and they reveal a network of observation and informants that covered the entire planet.

The documents do not give details about those responsible for the report in Spain. But there are details and notes, some by hand, on how informants, “at least 25 years old,” should operate, as well as the creation of a panel that should weigh all the information received and whose members receive a salary of $ 50 per day.

And if we talk about the Cold War, much of the information refers to everything that has to do with the Soviet Union, even in the context of paranormal phenomena, a follow-up was made of how the press in the Soviet sphere treated the phenomena of sightings.
The CIA notes with surprise — in the 60s — the complete absence of this news, “even from a sarcastic character”, in the Soviet media, wondering if in “media controlled” by the Government, this would obey a strategy of silence imposed . Although already in the 80s, before recurring news about phenomena in Soviet media, the CIA addresses the spectrum of media debate. Based on the report, it appears that curiosity and skepticism of extraterrestrial visitors are similar around the world.

The conclusions of the ATIC panel of experts in 1953 already establish that in view of the investigations carried out, it could not be established that the UFO sightings posed a threat to American security, nor that they could be related to a foreign aircraft in “ hostile act “.
However, it details the existence of potential added risks that, again, remind us of the constant war mentality: one of the risks that experts review is that the defense systems will not detect real enemies, or overload the channels of alert and information with false alarms and, lastly, they warn of the emotional factor of society, tending towards mass hysteria and greater vulnerability to possible psychological warfare.
