‘Unusual Circumstances’ Delay Pentagon UFO Program FOIAs

The Defense Intelligence Agency has begun responding to FOIA requests regarding the explosive Pentagon UFO revelations from this past December.

As one can imagine, the bombshell New York Times article and subsequent media fallout spawned incredible interest from the UFO community.

Almost as soon as the news hit, a number of diligent researchers quickly went to work filing FOIA requests to find out more about this newly-revealed and tantalizing twist in the tale of UFOs.

Among them was Jack Brewer of the blog UFO Trail, who published his recently-received response from the DIA over the weekend.

In what appears to be a form letter, the department tells Brewer that they cannot produce the information he requested within the required 20 days due to, in their words, “unusual circumstances.”

Among the possible issues which may warrant that designation, they explain, are that the files could be housed at a geographically distant location or the amount of material may be too massive to produce immediately.

The third reason cited by the agency and perhaps the most worrisome is that the request might require them to consult with “one or more other agencies” that would likely have a say in what gets released.

Their response closes by telling Brewer that his submission will be processed in the order it was received and that their current workload is “in excess of 1,139 requests.”

While it bears noting that this voluminous number of FOIA cases are for the DIA, in general, and not specifically pertaining to the AATIPS, it seems reasonable to conclude that the agency has received quite a few requests about the program since the news broke last month.

And, considering the glacial pace with which such requests are handled, it stands to reason that it will be at least a year, if not more, before Brewer’s paperwork winds up on the desk of someone who can do something about it.
