Pentagon released UFO footage…some of it

The Pentagon’s official release of UFO footage taken by Navy pilots comes after the same snippets had been leaked before. Brad Johnson, retired Sr. CIA Officer and President of Americans for Intelligence Reform, gives his analysis of the objects, the motives behind the release and why crucial information is left out. With 25 years in the CIA, is Brad a Scully or a Mulder? And what does Jimmy Carter know? The truth is out there.


brad johnson it is april 29th
00:03
of 2020 and i think it was two days ago
00:05
yesterday the day before
00:07
some some really startling news came out
00:10
of the pentagon
00:11
where they had confirmed i think to be
00:15
to be precise and to be accurate about
00:17
this they said that some videos which
00:19
actually had been circulating online a
00:21
couple of years ago
00:22
about where some u.s i guess navy pilots
00:26
i think in f18s
00:28
they spotted some aircraft behaving
00:31
in a way which aircraft doesn’t normally
00:34
be even i don’t think
00:35
there’s any science at this time to be
00:38
able to make them behave that way
00:39
and everybody was circulating a couple
00:42
years ago saying
00:43
this this is the best ever ufo footage
00:46
so the pentagon came out in the last
00:47
couple of days
00:48
and actually officially said yeah we
00:51
don’t know what these are these are
00:52
officially
00:53
unidentified maybe unidentifiable flying
00:57
objects
00:58
and um it feels like you know what
01:01
what should be maybe some of the biggest
01:03
news of all time in a way
01:05
uh it’s it’s been a giant collective
01:09
yawn
01:09
i mean it’s i think the fact that it
01:11
isn’t news is as big as the news itself
01:16
it has been interesting i think there
01:17
are some reasons for this
01:19
i i took a look at those videos just to
01:21
see what everything that was going on
01:24
i guess throw my head into the ring on
01:26
the analysis of what they mean
01:28
now these videos have been leaked
01:30
previously
01:31
and so tidbits of this were coming out
01:33
from 2007 to 2017
01:36
i think was the period that that some of
01:38
these were coming out so the videos are
01:40
a little bit
01:40
uh older and
01:44
uh they finally there’s been these leaks
01:46
and people looking at it and saying you
01:47
know clearly this is
01:49
an odd uh some form of odd aircraft
01:52
that’s moving oddly
01:54
and so then they’re the the people who
01:57
are
01:57
big believers in ufos have have been
01:59
saying that that’s proof
02:01
so it’s been part of an argument going
02:03
on for a decade and a half
02:05
on on these videos and as of more have
02:07
come out they’ve been used to make the
02:09
same argument so
02:10
i think part of the reason it hasn’t
02:11
been more reported or looked at or
02:14
analyzed just over the last few
02:16
few days since this came out is because
02:18
of that there is a history to it but
02:20
they did release them
02:21
a couple comments on it like i said i
02:23
looked at them pretty closely and looked
02:24
at them a number of times
02:25
uh first of all navy pilots are you know
02:28
i’ve
02:28
met guys those guys quite a few times
02:31
through the years a lot of
02:32
good guys you know navy pilots and
02:34
they’re very qualified pilots good guys
02:36
smart guys all that sort of stuff so i
02:38
mean
02:39
i have respect for them as a cadre and
02:41
certainly individually the
02:43
some of the guys i’ve met there have
02:44
been you know high-end high-end people
02:47
so i would tend to respect what they say
02:48
their comments on it and one of those
02:50
pilots now you don’t have too much in
02:52
there that’s that’s said
02:53
you don’t have anything conclusive in
02:55
there and it cuts off so you don’t know
02:58
what happens
02:58
i mean does the thing go away at you
03:01
know warp two
03:02
or or what happens you don’t know so
03:04
there’s a lot of
03:05
missing information in there now
03:08
supposedly
03:10
back when these were early uh you know
03:12
captured on film
03:14
uh the reason that they weren’t released
03:16
and what has been said since then by the
03:18
pentagon
03:19
is that there were good national
03:20
security reasons why they weren’t
03:21
released well now they’re released and
03:23
you’re looking at it and go well what
03:24
are those national security concerns
03:26
and i think because they didn’t have a
03:28
good explanation for them
03:30
although i i do question why these are
03:32
cut off why is it just uh
03:34
you know these are each very short
03:35
videos why don’t we have a
03:37
a longer video now something happened to
03:40
that thing and you know these navy
03:41
pilots didn’t
03:43
you know follow it for 30 seconds ago
03:44
okay that’s enough turn it off let’s go
03:46
home
03:46
you know they were they were sticking in
03:47
there they were going to go see what it
03:49
was too they would have wanted to know
03:50
and their that’s their job they were
03:52
out looking around to see what what the
03:54
heck was going on and who was it
03:56
so they would have continued pursuit
03:59
unless
04:00
somehow the aircraft got away well that
04:02
would be interesting news and they would
04:04
have
04:04
uh data telemetry type data on this
04:08
other aircraft and how it went away so
04:10
we’re getting partial information
04:13
i question why we’re getting that
04:15
because perhaps there’s something in
04:16
there that
04:16
that is scary and that’s why it’s the
04:19
national security concern
04:21
just because that aircraft performs at a
04:24
certain level that we’re not familiar
04:26
with
04:27
is not proof of aliens although clearly
04:30
i mean
04:31
being realistic i suppose there’s there
04:32
is you know some measure of
04:34
chance that that’s the case uh but i
04:37
would you know my first guess would be
04:38
that you know maybe the so
04:40
the russians or chinese have developed
04:42
something and they were using it off the
04:43
coast of the united states or
04:45
some u.s territory to see what they
04:48
could see with it and try and use it
04:49
might have been an unmanned
04:51
there’s been a lot of progress with
04:52
unmanned aircraft so something like that
04:54
would be able to maneuver in a way
04:56
that manned aircraft would not be able
04:59
to
04:59
one of the comments that came out of
05:01
that that the man made made a comment
05:03
that
05:03
the the aircraft was rotating i find
05:05
that very interesting but
05:07
what i would what i’m really curious
05:09
about and what we need to all see in
05:11
order to kind of decide what to think of
05:12
this is what’s
05:14
what’s the end you know what happens
05:16
after that
05:17
that when you see those little lines
05:19
come in and focus on it and then it’s
05:21
tracking in the camera
05:22
and you some of the films you see it’s
05:24
kind of sliding and then it comes back
05:25
and it slides and comes back
05:27
then it gets locked once it gets locked
05:29
that
05:30
pilot and like i said these navy pilots
05:32
are good guys they’re well trained
05:34
very capable guys uh you know there’s
05:37
ones with more experience and ones with
05:38
less experience but they’re still
05:40
you know capable people so he didn’t
05:42
just like
05:43
lose it you know after that so that that
05:47
information’s missing and i would be
05:48
curious about all of that
05:50
that’s kind of the final element to me
05:51
now like i said i know a lot of people
05:54
take a look at this and
05:55
consider proof but that you can’t see
05:57
enough detail of those things to really
05:59
decide
06:00
what they are it does look circular in
06:03
some ways
06:05
it does appear to be moving and rotating
06:06
in ways that a a normal aircraft
06:08
wouldn’t but
06:09
perhaps there was some sort of change in
06:11
direction or something where the
06:12
airplane
06:13
the other aircraft shifted and it gave
06:15
the appearance of
06:16
rotating where uh you know it might have
06:19
continued in
06:20
its thing there are aircraft where the
06:22
wings move and stuff too
06:23
and in an experimental aircraft maybe
06:25
you know the wings fold in it just goes
06:27
like a rocket and then goes low and
06:29
disappears into the ocean who knows what
06:31
just floats there until it’s picked up
06:33
uh i don’t know i’m speculating wildly
06:35
now but
06:36
uh my first guest would not be aliens
06:39
i’m not a big believer in that sort of
06:40
thing so it’s kind of not my first
06:42
guess i would say you know always be
06:44
suspicious of
06:46
my fellow mankind first for these sorts
06:48
of things
06:49
and then worry about the
06:51
extraterrestrials and uh
06:53
you know i don’t know if i was going to
06:54
travel light years to get here i’d want
06:56
at least stop in and say hello rather
06:58
than just flying around out of the ocean
07:00
with
07:01
you know trick aircraft and not not not
07:02
at least pop in for coffee
07:04
so i i’m a little surprised that uh that
07:08
that there’s so much belief in that but
07:11
you
07:12
you never know it’s it’s a it’s
07:13
certainly a theoretically feasible
07:15
possibility for it to be aliens but
07:18
based on these films there’s there is no
07:20
proof
07:21
there may be some evidence of something
07:23
unusual but there is no proof so
07:25
uh to those who are interested in that
07:27
to the ufo believers
07:29
i would say go after that tail end of
07:31
these videos to find out
07:33
how it ended what happened where that
07:35
aircraft disappeared from view because
07:37
certainly
07:37
the navy has more than enough capability
07:40
to call up as many aircraft as they need
07:42
for whatever it is they need those two
07:44
aircraft that were out there apparently
07:46
uh certainly were not the end of our
07:47
resources and they could have tracked
07:49
that
07:49
that other aircraft for a long time with
07:52
using all sorts of
07:54
airborne capabilities so that’s what’s
07:56
missing why that hasn’t been released i
07:58
think is a very interesting question
08:00
that’s what
08:00
that’s what needs to be focused on it
08:03
would have been really helpful if there
08:04
was
08:04
any indication of scale in any of those
08:07
videos because that’s
08:08
the other thing too is was this a small
08:10
drone or was this uh i mean that
08:13
the lack of indication of scale is is an
08:16
interesting data point right all by
08:19
itself
08:20
it is you know we don’t have included in
08:22
that the navy pilots would have the
08:24
information on its speed for example
08:27
they would have had a pretty good idea
08:29
of the size the scale that you’re
08:31
mentioning of the aircraft
08:32
and uh you know where did it go
08:36
and like i say if it if it if it turned
08:40
and sped off
08:41
at you know mach 25
08:45
then you know i would be looking that
08:47
going holy moly i mean there’s a problem
08:49
here of some sort because
08:51
if somebody else here on this planet is
08:52
doing that then we’ve got problems
08:54
if it’s somebody from some place place
08:55
else that’s here doing that then we’ve
08:57
got problems
08:58
no matter how you slice it we need to
09:00
figure this out you know
09:01
that would be my immediate reaction to
09:03
it so i
09:04
it’s extraordinarily important data
09:06
that’s just not left out but there is
09:08
some sort of
09:09
security element to it and i would say
09:11
the the government
09:13
tends to error towards trying to avoid
09:16
people
09:16
panicking which uh
09:19
you know even with all the scare tactics
09:22
it’s used in covet 19 i haven’t seen
09:24
that many people
09:25
panic per se a few guys that you know
09:27
getting fist bites in the
09:29
costco over the last case of water you
09:32
see some of that sort of thing but like
09:33
widespread panic and stuff
09:35
you know you haven’t really seen not
09:37
that it couldn’t be done but i don’t
09:38
think by information like that
09:40
i just don’t think you’re going to see
09:42
the people panic in the street so me i
09:44
would personally
09:44
just throw it out there and let me add
09:46
one other thing kind of in conclusion
09:50
we had a former president united states
09:52
jimmy carter that was a big believer in
09:53
ufos and one of the things he swore to
09:55
do when he
09:56
got if he became president was to go
09:58
look into all this and make it public
10:00
and
10:00
he was fully convinced that the federal
10:02
government was hiding information on
10:04
ufos
10:04
so that so did hillary clinton so did
10:07
hillary clinton as
10:08
one of her campaign promises and by far
10:10
the most amusing one
10:11
is that if she was elected she would
10:13
release all the government data on ufos
10:15
that’s interesting yeah i didn’t i
10:17
wasn’t aware that of hillary
10:18
so she didn’t get elected so we don’t
10:19
know we haven’t had the opportunity to
10:21
see what
10:22
she might have come up with but jimmy
10:24
carter did do that and he did go in and
10:26
look at everything
10:28
i would be surprised to find that if
10:31
he’s
10:31
actively looking for something out of
10:33
the navy that the navy didn’t give to
10:35
him he is commander-in-chief
10:37
those people understand following orders
10:39
and receiving orders and giving orders
10:41
but
10:42
uh i i just i can’t believe that they
10:44
would have hidden from the president
10:45
united states something that he
10:47
demanded to be shown out of the military
10:49
out of the navy specifically so
10:51
um i tend to think that there is no real
10:54
evidence
10:56
i tend to think that what they find as a
10:58
national security problem would be
11:00
the that this is technology by somebody
11:02
else that fits
11:04
the criteria of the situation we’re
11:05
faced with so as i often mentioned
11:08
optimus razer what’s the simplest
11:10
explanation for the data that we have
11:12
and that’s the simplest explanation that
11:14
there is some sort of technological
11:16
aspect to this that’s
11:17
that’s fairly advanced that would that
11:20
could be judged
11:20
threatening and so the government
11:22
doesn’t want to release that out they’re
11:24
going to study it themselves
11:25
which there’s some appropriateness to
11:27
that and
11:28
but they didn’t want wouldn’t want to
11:30
create any sort of general panic
11:32
letting people know that uh somebody
11:34
else out there on this planet has got an
11:36
advanced technology that we don’t have
11:38
you know that’s bad press so they would
11:40
want to avoid avoid
11:42
those sorts of issues so that to me is
11:44
the
11:45
simplest explanation for what we know so
11:47
far
11:48
last question on this in uh sometime
11:51
late last year
11:53
putin announced he actually showed
11:55
footage of it
11:56
that they had some missile that was
11:58
unstoppable that was mock
12:00
i don’t know mack double digits i think
12:03
and that it was maneuverable in flight
12:06
that could reach any target on earth
12:07
within a matter of an hour or two or
12:09
something it was just
12:10
crazy fast hypersonic missile nuclear
12:13
capable
12:14
and um but and could maneuver while in
12:18
flight
12:19
but yes i think that if this was that
12:23
we would they would have been able to
12:24
identify it i mean there’s there’s
12:25
footage of that right
12:26
correct and i don’t think that’s i don’t
12:28
think these are same things because
12:30
what we saw in the video this thing was
12:32
flying and you can
12:33
see that there’s what looks like ground
12:36
below some of these shots so
12:38
i mean it may have been up quite high
12:39
it’s hard to it’s just so hard to tell
12:40
from what we see in the
12:42
in these videos what they would have
12:43
would be much different and far
12:45
uh far more revealing of the details
12:49
than what we’re able to see out of these
12:51
videos well let’s let’s put it this way
12:54
i have a hard time believing that an f8
12:56
and us
12:57
2020 or 2017 even u.s navy f-18
13:02
has a 360 p um black and white camera
13:06
i i just i’m pretty damn sure the
13:09
footage we saw
13:10
has very little relationship to the one
13:12
i think what they’ve done is what
13:13
they’ve released were the leaked
13:15
materials and that anything that hadn’t
13:17
already been leaked
13:18
they’ve held back and like i said it’s
13:20
probably because there’s some
13:22
technological things in there that they
13:23
want you know they’re trying to you can
13:26
reverse engineer from seeing the
13:27
performance of something
13:29
so i think that would be the the
13:31
national security element to this uh
13:34
and that would be you know very un
13:36
reasonable reaction to that of you
13:38
you came across it i mean it’s the
13:40
program that you’re gonna be working on
13:41
to develop that same technology
13:43
of course is gonna be classified so that
13:45
therefore that’s national security
13:47
and that’s something you don’t want to
13:48
go out to the public so if that’s indeed
13:50
what’s going on i would say that’s just
13:51
like
13:52
pretty straightforward
