The 35-second video was released on Friday by TTSA, a private scientific research and media group. While the name sounds like a little much, it's helmed by Hal Puthoff, a NASA and US Department of Defense adviser, and James Semivan, a former Central Intelligence Agency official. Also, former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge is its co-founder, president, and interim CEO. Do with that information what you will.
Writing for the The Washington Post, Christopher Mellon, former United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and current advisor to TTSA, said: "Is it possible that America has been technologically leap-frogged by Russia or China? Or, as many people wondered after the videos were first published by The New York Times in December, might they be evidence of some alien civilization?"
