Not convincing.
It's the context of the onscreen text and voiceovers along with video that make this sensational.

But we have no knowledge that the video and the voiceovers and text are from the same incident.

Watch the video on it's own and ignore the text and voice.

It's quite boring and the 'craft' could be just video post processing / manipulation.
How is it possible that the object flying is so perfectly centered within the cross hairs?

The voiceover talks about other objects that are never seen, then the video abruptly ends and we are supposed to believe the object just raced off in some oblique angle.

In general - and as big of a UFO skeptic which I am - I agree with your point. But, what would be the point of fabricating this video, keeping it a secret, only to release it at a later point in time?

I think the NYTimes issued a correction to the text that accompanied the video and the correction said something about the object being just a 'drone'.

Regarding the purpose, who knows. Whatever motivates people to claim they saw a UFO.

Maybe I am stupid and reading it wrong, but, this is not some release from some BS website. This is an official US gov release, complete with a testimony with the conversation between the F-18's and the CG, and a video of the incident, additionally, one of the F-18 pilots as given his statement.

This is far beyond the ridiculous claims that have always come out.

I am the biggest skeptic out there, I actually believe in the rare Earth theory more so than anything, but, what in the hell was this?

I've often wondered why no clear pictures exist of these "alien" aircraft. Mankind has the ability to take pictures from space so clear that a newspaper can be read but why not of "alien" aircraft?? Those are always fuzzy, out of focus, low quality photos.

Well, quantum stasis fields generated by a gravity altering singularity on board the craft render the air immediately surrounding it to appear fuzzy or out of focus to the observer...

Honestly I have no idea. I just made that up.

Guess you guys are all "young'uns" - I remember when the Air Force used to report on UFO's . . . then all of a sudden, the reporting was banned.

I think thats because something about them or the nature of their craft, they are not entirely 'compatible' with our technology, you can get a much clearer image using IR, so that says alot.

About 3yrs ago, my wife and I were in Puerto Rico. It was about 1am and were were on our way back from visiting her family and on our way to our resort.

As Iím driving, Iím looking at what I thought was an airplane since we were close to the airport. Weird thing was, it was coming in at a very steep diagonal angle. I tell my wife ďthis plane looks as if its going to crash coming in at that angleĒ. She agreed. Now this thing has both of our attention.

Next thing you know, the object just comes to a complete stop and hovers around for a while. We both look at one another and say ďthatís not an airplane!Ē It was late at night so all we saw were lights from the object. After it hovers for around 2-3 minutes, the object just shoots up and vanished in a matter of a second. Faster than Iíve ever seen any airborn object move in my life.

Thats the jist of most UFO reports Ive read, there are exceptions, but Lots of encounters are just like this, the only problem is, this doesnt sound like the behavior of an advanced civilization, even if they have been coming here for 1000s of years.

I think there is some kind of deception going on, just not sure to what end and who is responsible.
