We live in strange times to begin with but they’re getting
stranger with each passing day. And you know stuff is getting uber
weird when The US Department of Defense a.k.a. The Pentagon releases
classified footage of unidentified flying objects filmed by navy
fighter pilots and it’s not even the biggest news that day. I mean,
maybe it’s just me, but it feels like most people reacted with “of
course that happened”.
So what exactly happened? These videos
have been leaked years ago and many people were speculating whether
or not the footage is real or has it been edited and doctored. Alien
enthusiasts were using them as arguments to prove the alien invasion
of earth or at least an attempt by aliens to make contact with
humans. While sceptics have been saying that the footage is
fabricated and can’t possibly be real.
Well, the day has come, you would think
that since the Pentagon released these videos they would also issue a
statement that would clarify things. But you’d be wrong. All
they’ve said is that they wanted to clear up the fact that these
videos are real, and they deemed them safe enough to release to the
public since they don’t contain any sensitive materials or
government secrets. However, the objects seen on the video are still
classified as “unidentified”.
What a move by the Pentagon. On one
hand, they’re essentially saying “here, we don’t want to keep
secrets from the public, we have these videos, they’re real and
there are some UFOs on them that we can’t figure out”. On the
other hand, they did specify that the reason they’ve chosen to
release them and clear things up is because it doesn’t actually
contain anything the government would want to keep secret.
Some might say that’s a shady move.
There are definitely people who have interpreted this as the Pentagon
confirming that those UFOs are essentially proof that aliens exist
(they never actually said that). But most of us are just confused as
to why they decided that the middle of the worldwide pandemic is a
good time to even bring up something so vague and polarising at the
It’s up to you to watch those videos
and make conclusions. Do you think those are alien spaceships? Are
those just some glitches in camera equipment? Perhaps there’s a
scientific explanation for these things? Is that just a bug, or a
bird or some sort of natural phenomenon? No official clarification
has been made by the Pentagon, but feel free to keep asking. In the
meantime, wash your hands, stay inside and be safe.
