Last month, federal authorities quietly released a series of UFO videos, including never-before-seen footage.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency responsible for keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the country, uploaded 10 videos that appear to show ships moving in strange ways in our skies.
The videos were released on August 9. without warning, a press release or much context, only to be discovered by UFO enthusiasts and online sleuths earlier this week.
The videos document a fighter jet being chased by a seemingly disconcerting flying orb, as well as what appears to be a propeller-driven hang glider, and another apparent orb hovering near a parked 16-wheeler.
The US Customs and Border Patrol uploaded 10 videos that appear to show ships moving in strange ways in our skies. The videos document, among other oddities, a fighter jet being chased by an apparent flying sphere (above), as well as what appears to be a propeller-driven hang glider.
But perhaps most significantly, the US CBP release confirms, at least tacitly, the veracity of a much-scrutinized 2013 thermal UFO video leaked to UFO researchers in 2015. For the first time since the leak, on April 25, 2013 in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. The UFO video has been confirmed.
The videos were posted on a site dedicated to agency records that were made public through requests under the US Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
But perhaps most significantly, the publication confirms, at least tacitly, the veracity of a much-scrutinized 2013 thermal UFO video leaked to UFO researchers in 2015.
For the first time since the leak, the United States government has confirmed that the Aguadilla, Puerto Rico UFO video from April 25, 2013, is genuinely unidentifiable.
The videos were accompanied by a 389-page PDF document, apparently from UAP records maintained internally by US Customs.
While the paperwork includes a lot of chaff, news clippings, and already public government reports, the FOIA drop also included internal emails detailing the law enforcement agency’s deliberations over UFO cases.
Several agency emails from August 2021 document an exchange between a UFO enthusiast and his superior about efforts to comply with the spirit of then-recent Congressional UFO legislation and the resulting UAP Task Force report.
“As a pet project, or for fun, do as much research as you want,” wrote the redacted official to CBP’s equivalent of The X-Files’ FBI agent, Fox Mulder. “I know that this topic is of great interest to you and that there is a lot of information to analyze.”
“There is simply no avenue for any formal investigation or reporting of any type of findings or conclusions,” the redacted official emphasized.
The also redacted CPB employee responded: ‘T4…I apologize and took the Director of National Intelligence’s UAP report seriously.’
In another video, released via FOIA by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, another apparent orb can be seen floating near a parked 16-wheeler.
But the statement also includes more than two dozen tantalizing pages that have been redacted in their entirety.
Depending on the statute, each page lists the legal status under which these records can be held by US CBP.
Investigative journalists and open government advocates have called the b(5) exemption the ‘Withholding because you want the exemption‘ as its guidelines were even described by the US Department of Justice as ‘opaque’.
The waiver, as described, gives government agencies the right to withhold any “interagency or intraagency memorandum or letter that would not be available by law to a party.”
Another video shows a strange glowing orb, but the videos were released with little context, making them difficult to contextualize.
The b(7)e exemption effectively addresses law enforcement’s own “sources and methods” as it withholds details that “would reveal techniques and procedures for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions” and other material that officials they believe it “could reasonably be expected to be put at risk.” evasion of the law.”
To this end, several of the released videos have notably redacted most of the forward-looking information from US CBP infrared or thermal video recordings: which would likely include data on altitude, heading, and scope of these UAPs.
This is a developing story and will be updated as new information becomes available.
Have you seen one? The Pentagon reveals what the most commonly reported UFO looks like
Since the first sighting more than 75 years ago, popular culture has often depicted a UFO as a flying saucer emitting a powerful halo of light.
But that could finally change after the official publication of information from the Pentagon about the mysterious aerial phenomenon.
The new Department of Defense document reveals characteristics of the typical UFO, including color and shape, speed and flight level.
Based on clues from reported sightings, the typical UFO has a round shape, usually described as spherical or orb, with a white or silver, often translucent color.
It also ranges in size from 3 to 13 feet (1 to 4 meters) and generally travels through the air at an altitude just below commercial passenger airplanes.
The Pentagon has also released a hotspot map revealing the locations of reported UFO sightings, including Japan and the Middle East.
