CIA Rues UFO Cover-Up

"Not only has the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency admitted its role in trying to 'correct' public opinion about UFOs over the last half century, it now believes the policy caused 'major problems' in dealing with the public.
In an internal report entitled 'CIA's Role in the Study of UFOs, 1947-90,' agency historian Gerald K. Haines portrayed the CIA as consistently and deliberately working to suppress reports of unidentified aerial phenomena since modern UFO sightings began with the Kenneth Arnold case of 1947.
Still, even in a paper filled with covert attempts on the part of both the CIA and the Air Force to 'persuade the public that UFOs were not extraordinary,' Haines himself continued the suppressive policy, perhaps unconsciously, by writing that the CIA 'paid only limited and peripheral attention to the phenomena' since the early 1950s."
