21 Creepy Declassified Documents That’ll Give You the Heebie Jeebies

11Hacking Vehicle Systems

One of the internal CIA documents leaked by WikiLeaks in early 2017 revealed that agency had been exploring methods to hack into vehicle systems. This program might explain the death of journalist Michael Hastings who was investigating the government’s military and intelligence apparatus especially CIA. He died after losing control of his car and crashing into a tree while traveling at about 100 mph. Before his death, he informed his colleagues that he was under government surveillance and also suspected that his vehicle had been tampered with.

12Operation Sea Spray

In 1950 the U.S. NAVY sprayed a cloud of bacteria over San Francisco in a biological warfare experiment under “Operation Sea-Spray”, just to see what happened. 11 patients at a local hospital developed very rare, serious infections and it led to the death of 1 patient. Cases of pneumonia also increased in San Francisco after the experiment.

13Gay bomb

The Gay Bomb is an informal name for a theoretical non-lethal chemical weapon that a United States Air Force research laboratory speculated about producing. The theories involve discharging female sex pheromones over enemy forces in order to make them sexually attracted to each other.

14The Luntz Memo

Pollster and media strategist Frank Luntz wrote a paper on how to effectively wage war on environmental science. After big gains by environmentalists in the 1970s, corporate interests colluded to fight back using propaganda techniques (front groups, public relations, think tanks, etc). Into the 90s their big battle was against the science of global warming, and Luntz basically wrote the playbook for how to deny, obfuscate, spin, and reframe the debate.

15Poison laboratory

Laboratory 12 was a Soviet assassination laboratory that used poisons to kill its victims. People were poisoned in broad daylight and they were indefensible even if they knew it was coming. One of the more interesting cases involved a man who knew he was being targeted. He holed himself up in a hotel with guards. The assassins sprayed a poisonous substance on the lamp shade and when the lamp was turned on hours later, the substance evaporated due to heat and killed everyone in the room.

16Project Angelfire

Project Angelfire debuted during the Iraq War. The project was designed to provide 24x7 real-time clear aerial surveillance data of any geographic location deemed worthy. It provides “Google Earth and TiVo-like capabilities on steroids” to the ground commander. The planes are so far up you couldn’t even see it. Currently, it is being used in the United States.


In 2007, Pentagon commissioned the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program to study UFOs. One of the program contractors modified buildings in Las Vegas to store metal alloys and other materials that were recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. The program has recordings of reported U.F.O. incidents, including the footage from a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet showing an aircraft surrounded by some kind of glowing aura traveling at high speed and rotating as it moves. The Navy pilots can be heard saying, “There’s a whole fleet of them.”

18Dolphins Experiments

In 1965, U.S. government funded an experiment to determine whether or not dolphins could speak. For 10 weeks, a young female research associate shared living space with a dolphin in a partially flooded, two-room house. Soon the dolphin became uninterested in his lessons and tried to aggressively woo and mate with her. All this ultimately led to her giving the dolphin a handjob and both of them taking LSD in order to increase the likelihood of it being able to speak.

19Holmesburg Prison Experiments

Holmesburg Prison in Philadelphia has been a site of controversial dermatological, pharmaceutical, and biochemical weapons research projects involving testing on inmates. One inmate described exposure to microwave radiation, sulfuric and carbonic acid, solutions which corroded and reduced forearm epidermis to a leather-like substance. In another experiment, fragments of cadavers were stitched into the backs of inmates to determine if the fragments could grow back into functional organs.

20Involuntary Sterilization

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services practiced involuntary surgical sterilization on Native American women all the way through the 1970s. The procedure was often done under the pretense of a checkup or abortion. Most of the victims were not aware they had been sterilized, even after the procedure. The average birth rate of Native American women fell from 3.79 in the 1970s to 1.8 in 1980s.
