Navy’s Attitude About Releasing UFO Videos More Disturbing Than the Videos

• The US Navy recently confirmed that three online videos of military jet encounters with UAPs: ‘unidentified aerial phenomenon’ are authentic. But what is more disturbing is that the Navy seems less concerned with the UAPs themselves, than with the notion that the videos, while not classified, had not been “cleared for public release”. A Pentagon spokesperson told The Black Vault website, “The videos were never officially released to the general public by the (Department of Defense) and should still be withheld.”

• The oldest ‘Tic Tac’ UFO video is from 2004. Now, 15 years later the Navy still hasn’t determined what these UAPs are. But the Navy’s biggest concern is that the videos were released? The videos are not “confidential,” “secret,” or “top secret,” based on degrees of potential damage to national security. No such long-term category as “not cleared for public release” should exist with respect to information generated or acquired by the government.

• If the government works for the people, why should it keep so many secrets from the people in the first place? There should be a time limit in which any given piece of information must either be classified or made available to the public. All government information not classified within 30 days of its creation or acquisition should be stored in databases that the public can search at will. Concealing information from the public should be incredibly difficult — not a matter of course. “Not cleared for public release” shouldn’t exist as a new category.

• UFOs may be extraterrestrial in origin. The public needs more information. But it shouldn’t be the government’s prerogative to conceal such information from the rest of us indefinitely, tell us tall tales about weather balloons and swamp gas, and offer lame “national security” excuses when called out. A bigger problem than determining what these UFOs are may be the how the post-World War II national security state apparatus has developed a culture of general secrecy that we accommodate at our peril.

 

The U.S. Navy confirms that three online videos showing two military air encounters with what it calls “unexplained aerial phenomena” and the rest of us call “unidentified flying objects” are authentic, as Popular Mechanics reported.

The videos are interesting, and some might find them disturbing. What’s more disturbing to me is that the Navy thinks the videos are none of our business, not even 15, or even four, years after they were recorded in 2004 and 2015.
Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough told The Black Vault website, “The videos were never officially released to the general public by the DoD (U.S. Department of Defense) and should still be withheld.”

The videos aren’t classified. They just haven’t been “cleared for public release.”

No such long-term category as “not cleared for public release” should exist with respect to information generated or acquired by government.

There are legal standards for “classifying” information as “confidential,” “secret,” or “top secret,” based on supposed degrees of damage to national security disclosure of the information might cause.

I’m personally against allowing the state to keep secrets at all. They claim to work for us. If we’re really their bosses, we should get to look over their shoulders any time we please.

Scientist Claims USS Nimitz UFO Might Have Been Looking For Something Underwater

Listen to “E113 10-3-19 Scientist Claims USS Nimitz UFO Might Have Been Looking For Something Underwater” on Spreaker.Article by Jake Massey                     September 19, 2019                       (ladbible.com)

• Kevin H. Knuth, a former NASA research scientist, has written a research paper entitled: ‘Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles’ which claims that the ‘Tic-Tac’ UFO spotted by two jets from USS Nimitz carrier group off of San Deigo in 2004 may have been watching over something submerged under water.

• The Navy jets’ encounter with the ‘Tic-Tac’ UFO took place in 2004, but only came to light in December 2017 following a New York Times report which revealed the US Department of Defense ran a special program designated to tracking UFOs known as the ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’. The Times article included a video taken by Navy fliers of the Tic-Tac UFO in flight, (or “UAP” – “unidentified aerial phenomenon” as the Navy prefers to call them).

• On that day of the UAP sighting in 2004, Chief Petty Officer Kevin Day saw a mysterious submerged object in the water. Knuth relates in his research paper that, based on Day’s description, the UAPs acted as if they “were looking for something by slowly tracking south at 100 knots or so at a 28,000ft altitude. The Tic-Tac UAP was then observed to be hovering with erratic motion over the churning water.” “An encounter with the Tic-Tac UAP ensued. After the encounter the submerged object was no longer present.”

• Knuth continues: “Clearly, the UAP was interested in the submerged object.” “It is possible that this object and others like it are the reason that the UAPs were in the area.” “Day reported that the UAPs appeared to be avoiding the Nimitz Carrier Group and its aircraft, which is very different from the encounters on the East Coast involving the Roosevelt Carrier Group in which case the UAPs seemed to be seeking out encounters.”

If none of this means anything to you, a little explanation. Basically, the encounter took place way back in 2004, but only came to light in 2017 following a New York Times report which revealed the US government had a special programme designated to tracking UFOs.

A video showed the UFO – which is formally known as a Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) and looks a bit like a Tic-Tac – appearing to fly in front of camera.

Now, Kevin H. Knuth – a former NASA research scientist – has offered a theory as to what was going on, based on the description of witness and Navy Chief Petty Officer Kevin Day. The new hypothesis is based on the fact Day saw a mysterious submerged object in the water during the UAP sighting.

According to the Daily Star, Knuth writes in his research paper ‘Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles’: “The thought was triggered by Kevin Day’s description of the UAPs as acting as if they were migrating.

“They also seemed to act like they were looking for something by slowly tracking south at 100 knots or so at 28,000ft altitude. The Tic-Tac UAP was then observed to be hovering with erratic motion over the churning water.

“An encounter with the Tic-Tac UAP ensued. After the encounter the submerged object was no longer present.
“Clearly, the UAP was interested in the submerged object.”

The Navy Says Those UFO Videos Are Real

Listen to “E101 9-20-19 The Navy Says Those UFO Videos Are Real” on Spreaker.
Article by Kyle Mizokami                  September 16, 2019                 (popularmechanics.com)

• The US Navy has confirmed that, while they should never been released to the public, the three online videos taken by Navy pilots of UFOs: the “FLIR1” (aka “Tic Tac”), “Gimbal”, and “GoFast”, are indeed genuine.

• (The “FLIR1”/ “Tic Tac” video was taken November 14, 2004 over the Pacific Ocean off of the coast of San Diego. The “GoFast” video was taken January 21, 2015 over the Atlantic Ocean off of Virginia, and the “Gimbal” video was taken January 21, 2015 over the Atlantic Ocean off of Florida.) In the videos, air crews debate what the objects are and where they came from.

• The videos were released by The New York Times and ‘To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences’, a UFO research group headed by former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge.

• In each case, the UFOs (or ‘UAPs’ – ‘unidentified aerial phenomenon’) undertook aerial maneuvers that aren’t possible with current aviation technology. In the 2004 incident, according to The New York Times article, the ‘Tic Tac UFO’ “appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up.”

• The Department of Defense told The Black Vault website that the videos were unclassified but never cleared for public release, and that there had been no review process within the Pentagon for releasing them. The Pentagon now says the aerial objects in the videos are simply unidentified, and for now, unexplained. The Navy is pointedly not saying the objects are flying saucers or otherwise controlled by aliens.

[Editor’s Note]   And the full disclosure of the Deep State government cover-up of a flourishing extraterrestrial presence takes another step forward.

 

The U.S. Navy has confirmed that three online videos purportedly showing UFOs are genuine. The service says the videos, taken by Navy pilots, show “unexplained aerial phenomena,” but also states that the clips should have never been released to the public in the first place.

The three videos in question are titled “FLIR1,” “Gimbal,” and “GoFast.” They show two separate encounters between Navy aircraft and UFOs.

One video was taken in 2015 off the East Coast by a F/A-18F fighter jet using the aircraft’s onboard Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) Pod. The other clip, also recorded with a Super Hornet ATFLIR pod, was taken off the coast of California in 2004 by pilots flying from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. In the videos, air crews loudly debate what the objects are and where they came from.

The videos were released for public viewing by The New York Times and To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, a UFO research group from former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge.

In each case, the objects in the videos undertook aerial maneuvers that aren’t possible with current aviation technology. In the 2004 incident, according to The New York Times, the objects “appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up.”
