Pentagon Releases New UFO Video

The Pentagon has apparently approved the release of a third UFO video to accompany a guest editorial published today in the Washington Post.

Entitled “The military keeps encountering UFOs. Why doesn’t the Pentagon care?” and written by Christopher Mellon, national security expert and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Clinton and Bush Administrations, the editorial introduces the newest footage, which shows a small target being tracked moving rapidly across the waves. The video was reportedly recorded off the east coast of the U.S. in 2015. This follows the earlier release of two videos apparently captured off the coast of San Diego in 2004.

Mellon states that he and his colleagues at Tom De Longe's To The Stars organization are “being approached by military personnel who are concerned about national security and frustrated by how the Defense Department is handling such reports.”

The editorial calls for a more systematic, reliable, and taboo-free way for those in the armed forces to report their own sightings as a way to begin to seriously study and understand the UFO enigma. In a plea to take the subject more seriously, Mellon concludes that the “future belongs to not only the physically brave but also the intellectually agile.”
