It’s been a hell of a year, and it’s kind of hard to keep up with all the madness. But did you know that in April the Navy released UFO videos, admitting that they are indeed UFOs caught on camera, and it barely made headlines?

Back in 2017, the New York Times released some leaked videos. They showed Navy F/A-18 fighter pilots during training flight. The video itself is weird enough, but the audio is even more compelling.

If you haven’t watched the video, go do it.

The pilots describe the scene – watching the objects move on the radar against the wind at 120 knots. Their shock is not hidden, and there is never an explanation given for the encounter.

“There’s a whole fleet of them!”

It’s something straight out of a movie. Now, over two years later, the Navy released UFO videos “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that had been circulating was real or whether or not there is more to the videos,” said Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough.

That in an of itself is cool enough. I mean, the Navy released UFO videos and didn’t even pretend to explain them. But the story didn’t stop there.

A few weeks ago the Senate Intelligence Committee added some language to this year’s Intelligence authorization bill that would require the Pentagon and other U.S. intelligence agencies to put release a comprehensive and unclassified look at everything they have on “unidentified aerial phenomenon.”

Yep. The Senate wants the agencies to be up front about anything they find regarding extra terrestrials. UFO reports have always seemed like something that should be classified and scary, but why? Why should we be kept in the dark?
