U.S. Navy Says Its Secret UFO Files Would Cause ‘Grave Damage’ to National Security


The U.S. Navy recently insisted that if it released its secret Unidentified Flying Object files, the resulting furor would put U.S. national security at risk.

The Pentagon says its Top Secret-classified briefings and Secret-classified videos would cause “exceptionally grave damage” to America’s safety, according to Vice.

The files in question concern an encounter between the USS Nimitz and unknown aerial objects — or UFOs — that occurred off the coast of San Diego in 2004. Video of the incident reportedly shows flying objects moving at high speeds thousands of feet in the sky but showing no signs of wings or ay obvious means of propulsion.

The videos were first released by the New York Times in 2017, and now the Navy has confirmed that the videos are real.

But since the video was made public, a public records request was filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by writer Christian Lambright. But the Navy has denied Lambright access to some of the information.

According to Lambright, the Navy told him:

We have discovered certain briefing slides that are classified TOP SECRET. A review of these materials indicates that [they] are currently and appropriate Marked and Classified TOP SECRET under Executive Order 13526, and the Original Classification Authority has determined that the release of these materials would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States.

We have also determined that the [Office of Naval Intelligence] possesses a video classified SECRET that ONI is not the Original Classification Authority for.

The Navy also told Vice: “The Department of Defense, specifically the U.S. Navy, has the video. As Navy and my office have stated previously, as the investigation of UAP sightings is ongoing, we will not publicly discuss individual sighting reports/observations,” Susan Gough, a Pentagon spokesperson, told [Vice]. “However, I can tell you that the date of the 2004 USS Nimitz video is Nov. 14, 2004. I can also tell you that the length of the video that’s been circulating since 2007 is the same as the length of the source video. We do not expect to release this video.”

Further attempts to clarify the info has been stymied.
