A new purported military video of an unidentified aircraft has been made public, following the Pentagon's acknowledgment previous year that it had shelved an initiative devoted to identifying unknown objects in aerospace.
"What the f*** is that thing?" one of the pilots can be heard saying in the video, after getting pumped up about "boxing" the moving target. The three videos show Navy pilots tracking and commenting about an unidentified object as it traveled through the sky at high speeds.
"Defense Department officials who analyze the relevant intelligence confirm more than a dozen such incidents off the East Coast alone since 2015", he wrote.
Is it possible that America has been technologically leap-frogged by Russian Federation or China?

Dealing with the North Korea issue is one reason he decided Monday to cut short the trip by a day and return home. If the President was listening to Maginnis for advice, he says, he would tell him not to agree to any summit.
Chris Mellon, a TTSA advisor and former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, slammed what he said was the lack of research into what could be behind these videos in an op-ed published Friday in the Washington Post.
The release of the videos was quietly arranged by intelligence officer Luis Elizondo, who headed the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program and left the Defense Department late previous year. In one example, over the course of two weeks in November 2004, the USS Princeton, a guided-missile cruiser operating advanced naval radar, repeatedly detected unidentified aircraft operating in and around the Nimitz carrier battle group, which it was guarding off the coast of San Diego.
"There is no Pentagon process for synthesising all the observations the military is making".
Mellon observed that military departments and agencies have instead treated "such incidents as isolated events rather than as part of a pattern requiring serious attention and investigation". "I think it's one of the good things I did in my congressional service".
Included in this report, the New York Times obtained video from the USA government from a 2004 event in which a "whitish oval object" was chased by two F/A-18F fighter jets off the coast of San Diego.
"Nobody wants to be "the alien guy" in the national security bureaucracy; nobody wants to be ridiculed or sidelined for drawing attention to the issue", he added. This is true up and down the chain of command, and it is a serious and recurring impediment to progress.
To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science reports the unidentified object appears as a white oval moving quickly from the top right to the lower left of the screen. "We don't know what the hell it is". Harry Reid's intense interest in the subject.
