The X-Files has returned to television recently after being off the air for more than 10 years. The two main characters, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, are still searching for clues of extra-terrestrial life all around America.
In real life, the CIA just released thousands of classified documents from the 1940s to the 1960s about alien and UFO sightings in the US. Those people that think the government knows about and is hiding their proof of aliens might be disappointed. There are plenty of documents about flying saucers but nothing is life-and-death. Instead, the only things that conspiracy theorists might find interesting are the few files that do not have explanations. Most of the released reports were found to be faked.
It seems that the CIA released these files to take advantage of the publicity around The X-Files reboot. On the CIA's Twitter account, a post shows what people should do if they see a UFO. Overall, the CIA believes that releasing these files shows everyone that there are scientific explanations for nearly all of those supposed UFO sightings.
