Summary

The evidence in this book may not ultimately give you the “smoking gun” you are looking for on your journey, but I guarantee it will give you a box of bullets when you find it. 

In 1996, John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the US Government at the age of 15. He targeted such agencies as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Air Force, Army, Navy, NSA, DIA, and countless others. 

Greenewald utilized the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gain access to more than two million pages of documents. This archive includes information relating to UFOs, the JFK assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. He took the millions of pages, and over the course of more than two decades, has built an archive known around the world as The Black Vault. 

Inside the Black Vault: The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed takes you on a journey within the secret world of unidentified aerial phenomenon that has plagued the military since at least the 1940s. Declassified records prove that the UFO topic is one of the most highly classified and most elusive subjects the US Government has ever dealt with. Each chapter explores various agencies and their documents, and Greenewald breaks down the meaning of why some of the most important documents are relevant to proving a massive cover-up. 

Along with declassified documents, Greenewald outlines the struggle it took him to get them. No other topic has proven so difficult in more than 8,000 FOIA requests that he has filed. He explores why that might be and meets skeptics and debunkers head on, outlining why some of their more prominent rebuttals for it all cannot be true.

Well researched

In the early chapters he does suffer from confirmation bias and a tendency to fit the evidence into his opinion that he’s already made. Certainly doesn’t prove anything with regards to Roswell. In other chapters the narrative can prove to be convincing but it gets bogged down in technical details that don’t translate very well to an audio book (chapter 14 springs to mind). He makes the assertion that he’s proved certain things throughout but his threshold for what constitutes as “proven” is perhaps on a lower level than I’m comfortable with. The last chapter sums it all up nicely, clearly taking what is a complicated scientific argument and trying to simplify it but again he only lists the logic and reasoning that backs up his arguments and forgoes any other. Overall very well researched, he’s clearly very passionate about the subject and that comes across well. If you can approach this with a level head then there is lots to be gained from this book.

Please Listen to This Book- We all need to seriously wake up

This book does an excellent job breaking down the UFO subject and explaining the absolute abhorrent deceit and length the government will go to maintain the lie. It has been nearly 75 years now since the crash at Roswell and they are still LYING about what happened. The author, John Greenewald, Jr., is a man on a mission to expose the truth and I thank him for that. I would love to talk to an absolute debunker (not a skeptic; skepticism is a good thing when investigating, especially when it's a subject like this) before and after he/she listens to this book. Since everything John Greenewald, Jr. says Is backed up by "undebunkable" official documentation from the government through the FOIA Act (before FOIA started to suck), let's just say I wouldn't want to be that debunker cause they are going to have a rough time explaining away the overwhelming amount of evidence. Any person with a little bit of common sense HAS to come to the conclusion, despite how uncomfortable and relecuant they may be, that the most logical answer to the UFO phenomenon is that we were and still are being visited by extraterrestrials and the government has known about this for a long long time and consider the UFO (sorry-UAP) subject above top secret. This is BS and needs to be disclosed to the public already
