Earlier this week the Pentagon released footage of a number of UFOs described by officials as "an unexplained aerial phenomenon." The footage goes all the way back to 2004, nearly two decades ago.
"The Department of Defense has authorized the release of three unclassified Navy videos, one taken in November 2004 and the other two in January 2015, which have been circulating in the public domain after unauthorized releases in 2007 and 2017. The U.S. Navy previously acknowledged that these videos circulating in the public domain were indeed Navy videos," the Department of Defense released in a statement.
"After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena. DOD is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos. The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as 'unidentified,'" the statement continues.
The videos have been circulating for years but haven't been officially confirmed, until now.
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took notice and is telling Americans there is far more to the story.
I’m glad the Pentagon is finally releasing this footage, but it only scratches the surface of research and materials available. The U.S. needs to take a serious, scientific look at this and any potential national security implications. The American people deserve to be informed. https://t.co/1XNduvmP0u— Senator Harry Reid (@SenatorReid) April 27, 2020
Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed this issue on his show two years ago.
