The US Navy has unseen videos of unidentified flying objects (UFOs), or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), as the Department of Defense (DOD) prefers to call them. English), but will not make the videos public because “it would harm national security.”
As reported by John Greenewald, researcher in charge of the website specializing in the collection of this type of government document, the FOIA request was submitted to the US Navy in April 2020, just one day after three were declassified. now-famous videos taken by fighter pilots.
The objective was, more than ambitious, to release each and every one of the videos related to unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs, a term that will soon be updated to “Unidentified Aerospace-Underwater Phenomena”).
Now, more than two years later, the long-awaited answer came in the form of a letter confirming that more UFO videos exist, but that they cannot be released due to national security concerns.
“Release of this information will harm national security as it may provide adversaries with valuable information about Department of Defense/Navy operations, vulnerabilities, and/or capabilities,”
Gregory Cason, deputy director of the Navy’s FOIA office, wrote in a response letter.
“No part of the videos can be segregated for publication.”
Cason added that the Navy was able to declassify the three UAP videos released in April 2020 only because the videos had previously been leaked to the media and had already been “widely discussed in the public domain.”
The Navy deemed it possible to officially release the images “without further harm to national security,” Cason wrote. Interestingly, in its response to The Black Vault’s request, the Navy made no attempt to hide the existence of additional UAP videos.
It is clear that there are more videos of unexplained UFO encounters in the Navy files, but how many and what they represent will remain a mystery for now.
It is noteworthy that a couple of weeks ago, Marik von Rennenkampff, a former analyst at the US Department of State’s Office of International Security and Non-Proliferation and a Department of Defense official under the Obama administration; He also stated that the Pentagon has at least two dozen UFO videos that it has not released to the public.
Von Rennenkampff questioned the government for this secrecy, emphasizing the constant contradiction it represents when measured against the transparency that Congress seeks and the recent acceptance —on the low side— that these objects do not respond to artifacts of foreign powers nor are they their own.
