Top-secret UFO files could cause "grave damage" to U.S. national security if released, Navy says

In November 2004, several U.S. Navy pilots stationed aboard the USS Nimitz encountered a Tic-Tac-shaped UFO darting and dashing over the Pacific Ocean in apparent defiance of the laws of physics. Navy officials dubbed the strange craft an "unidentified aerial phenomenon," but they have remained mum on what, exactly, that phenomenon could've been. Now, unsurprisingly to anyone who's ever considered making a hat out of tinfoil, the military has confirmed they know more than they're letting on.

In response to a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, a spokesperson from the Navy's Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) confirmed that the agency possesses several top-secret documents and at least one classified video pertaining to the 2004 UFO encounter, Vice reported.

According to the ONI spokesperson, these documents were either labeled "SECRET" or "TOP SECRET" by the agencies that provided them, and that sharing the information with the public "would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States."

These top-secret files included several "briefing slides" about the incident, provided to the ONI by an unnamed agency. (Because ONI officials did not classify the slides personally, they are unable to declassify them, the spokesperson added).

2. Who do they think they are, the Pope?

So much early science was suppressed or declared heresy by those old fuckers who said the common people couldn't handle the knowledge that the Earth orbited the sun and was therefore not the center of the universe, known or unknown.

The colossal arrogance that goes along with this stuff is mind boggling, to say the least. The worst most of it would do is embarrass some long dead bureaucrats who declared it secret in the first place.

Yes, UFOs exist. They're stuff up in the sky that we can't explain. People who think they know what they are will continue to have fun pretending to be omniscient. A few people will look for commonalities and start thinking about what it might take to isolate a crew from Newtonian physics so they can function without the nasty effects of inertia, acceleration, and friction.

We're more likely to blow ourselves up or get blown up by natural causes before any of those problems is close to being solved, so the net result of declassification beyond a few "told ya sos" from internet cranks who find their own particular lunacy vindicated will be nil.

"National security," my flabby old ass Embarrassing bureaucrats makes us more secure, not less so. Tends to keep 'em a little more humble.

Check out what Dr. Stephen Greer has to say about it. He's an expert in the field.
