The Central Intelligence Agency have released around 13 million declassified documents online.
The documents are being released after a lengthy lawsuit against the CIA and a continued push from freedom of information advocates.
The files include a variety of intelligence meetings, research documents, UFO sightings and psychic experiments.
There are several more bizarre records that have been released, such as archives from the so-called Stargate programme.

Experiments were carried out on several test subjects, including celebrity psychic Uri Geller in 1973.
Memos describe how Mr Geller was able to partly replicate pictures drawn in another room with varying – but sometimes precise – accuracy.
This lead the researchers to say he ‘demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner.’
The CIA have also featured heavily on Twitter after the outgoing CIA Director, John Brennan, spoke out against the President-elect, Donald Trump’s twitter spat.
Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?

The Directors response was strong: ‘It’s when there are allegations made about leaking or about dishonesty or a lack of integrity, that’s where I think the line is crossed.’
Tell the families of those 117 CIA officers who are forever memorialized on our wall of honor that their loved ones who gave their lives were akin to Nazis.
Tell the CIA officers who are serving in harm’s way right now and their families who are worried about them that they are akin to Nazi Germany.
I found that to be very repugnant, and I will forever stand up for the integrity and patriotism of my officers who have done much over the years to sacrifice for their fellow citizens.
A former CIA director, Michael Hayden has also been also recently interviewed regarding his concerns with the President-elect’s relationship with Vladimir Putin (video below).
