Its existence was ‘top secret’ for years, but the Pentagon has concluded that its publication “does not reveal sensitive capabilities or compromises any investigation” in Beaumarchais and today has declassified three already known recordings in which what it calls “unidentified aerial phenomena” or “unexplained”.
“The Department of Defense is publishing the videos to clear any confusion from the public about whether the images that were circulating were real or not and whether or not there are more videos,” explained Pentagon spokeswoman Susan Gough, by way of explanation by the unexpected decision to publish the original documents.
As they said in the 90s fiction series ‘The X-File’, now “the truth is out there.”
The videos declassified by the Pentagon, one dated in 2004 and the other in 2015, are the same recordings that the To The Stars Academy portal and The New York Times published in 2017 and 2018, with the same file names: FLIR1, Gimbal and GoFast.
In its statement today, the Pentagon confirms that it continues to describe these aerial phenomena as “unidentified,” although it defines the object of the ongoing investigations as possible “military incursions into airspace”.
They have never been defined as alien spacecraft.
The first of the videos lasts 75 seconds and was recorded, according to what was once published in the New York newspaper, about a hundred miles into the Pacific Ocean, when two Navy pilots interrupted their training mission to investigate the activity of a flying artifact that had been taking weeks tracking.
“Look at that thing!” One hears one say in Gimbal. “It’s a fucking drone,” replies his colleague. “There is a whole fleet!” “Good God, they are all going against the direction of the wind, man, the wind is 120 knots!” Adds this, surprised by the precision of the artifact rotation.
In the ‘Go Fast’ video, several unidentified objects can be seen flying at high speed, slowing down and accelerating again to the amazement of the US military.
“I am glad that the Pentagon is finally releasing these recordings but it is only a small part of all available research and materials,” said former Senator Harry Reid, promoter of the UFO study program that the Pentagon secretly developed over the years 2007 and 2012.
“The United States needs to seriously and scientifically study this and any implications for national security. Americans deserve to be informed,” the senator from Nevada, where Area 51 is located, is the famous sanctuary for UFO fans or believers.
The military program, the existence of which was unveiled in 2017, ended because the Pentagon concluded that there were more urgent priorities to devote money to.
“Those aircraft – let’s call them aircraft – have characteristics that do not appear in the inventory of the United States or of any foreigner of which we are aware.”
The increase in sightings of unidentified objects or aerial phenomena in recent years led the Pentagon in 2019 to formalize a protocol on how to record observations of “unauthorized or unidentified” flights.
The change in terminology, from UFOs to UAPs in fact responds to an attempt to remove the stigma to the issue and move away from “the theories about what those videos are or are not”, to improving records and investigations, explained Joseph Gradisher, a Navy spokesman, last year.
In internet forums and other media, the pilots complained rather to the contrary, that their observations were ignored.
