The Black Vault is the largest privately run online repository of declassified government documents anywhere in the world.

 

With more than 1.4 MILLION pages of documents to read, on nearly every government secret imaginable, The Black Vault is known worldwide for getting down to the truth... and nothing but.

Every document in its archive was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Begun in 1996, at the age of 15, John Greenewald, Jr., began hammering the U.S. Government with FOIA requests to obtain information. The Black Vault is the result of that near 2 decade effort.
