Navy Refuses To Release Remaining UFO/UAP Videos

The Government has denied a FOIA request to release ALL remaining videos filmed by Pilots pertaining UFO/UAP. Strangely, and despite the refusal, the government acknowledged there were more videos.


The Pentagon has at least two dozen — and probably many more — UFO videos in its possession. And, despite public commitments to transparency, officials refuse to publish them. This is extremely contradictory after clear statements by the government acknowledging the existence of UFOs and saying they likely do not come of this Earth.

John Greenwald from the Black Vault requested the videos to be released to the public under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). However, the Navy said no.

A FOIA request was submitted to the US Navy one day after three — now very famous UFO videos — recordings were declassified in April 2020, according to John Greenewald, the man behind the website The Black Vault. The goal was more than ambitious, to have the government release each and every one of the videos pertaining to unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs, a term that will soon be updated to “Unidentified Aerospace-Underwater Phenomena.”


Two years went by with no one saying anything to Greenwald, but the long-awaited answer came in the form of a letter confirming that more UFO videos exist but that they cannot be released due to national security concerns.

“The UAP Task Force has responded back to DNS-36 and has stated that the requested videos contain sensitive information pertaining to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and are classified and are exempt from disclosure in their entirety under exemption 5 U.S.C. § 552 (b)(1) in accordance with Executive Order 13526 and the UAP Security Classification Guide,” Gary Cason, Deputy Director, DON FOIA/PA Program Office, wrote in the response letter. “The release of this information will harm national security as it may provide adversaries valuable information regarding Department of Defense/Navy operations, vulnerabilities, and/or capabilities. No portions of the videos can be segregated for release.

As Cason pointed out, the Navy was able to declassify the three UAP videos released in April 2020 only because they had already been leaked to the media and had been widely discussed by the public. Cason wrote that the Navy determined that releasing the images was possible “without further harm to national security.” It is noteworthy that the Navy did not try to hide the existence of additional UAP videos when responding to The Black Vault’s request. Navy files contain more videos of unidentified UFO encounters, but the number and nature of those encounters remain a mystery.


According to Marik von Rennenkampff, an analyst with the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation at the US Department of State and a Department of Defense official under the Obama administration, at least two dozen UFO videos exist in the Pentagon, and they have not been released to the public. In contrast with Congress’ desire for transparency and the recent acceptance that these objects do not respond to artifacts of foreign powers, nor do they belong to them, Von Rennenkampff questioned the government’s secrecy, pointing out the constant contradiction it represents.
