Vindication, thy name Is Tom DeLonge. After leaving Blink-182 a few years ago, Tom’s mission has been to expose government cover-ups and prove the existence of “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (that’s “aliens” for you civilian-types).
A couple of years ago Tom’s UFO research company, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, published alleged leaked videos from 2004 of U.S. fighter pilots spotting UFOs. Then, last fall, the U.S. Navy confirmed the videos were actually real. And now, The Damn Pentagon has doubled down on the legitimacy of the footage and released it themselves. Hey, maybe now Tom can finally get that meeting with Hilary Clinton!
Here’s the footage the Pentagon released:
"Look at that thing!"

This is the first time The Pentagon has acknowledged the existence of the videos (via NME):
In a statement, Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough said the videos had been officially released “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”
The navy pilot who spotted the UFOs, David Fravor, previously told CNN:
“As I got close to it… it rapidly accelerated to the south, and disappeared in less than two seconds.
“This was extremely abrupt, like a ping pong ball, bouncing a wall. It would hit and go the other way.”
Eerie. I love it. Time to stream hours and hours of The X-Files!
Tom tweeted this in response to The Pentagon declassifying the footage:
With today’s events and articles on my and @TTSAcademy’s efforts to get the US Gov to start the grand conversation, I want to thank every share holder at To The Stars for believing in us. Next, we plan on pursuing the technology, finding more answers and telling the stories.

This must be a pretty great week for Tom. Surprisingly enough, his new life path hasn’t always been easy. First he went all tin-foil hat on us and claimed the government was watching him. Then in 2018 it was reported that his UFO company was $37 million in debt. And last September he filed for divorce from his wife of 18 years, Jennifer DeLonge.
Not that we have any proof the end of his marriage was alien-related, but, c’mon. She signed on for marriage with a rock star, not Richard Dreyfuss in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
