ohh the TDL video is laughable its so CGI its not even funny.
as far as his motive, i think Tom isn't a dummy by any means. But i think people can get extreme cases of confirmation bias that can blind even the best. add in his government sources telling him god knows what he is ready to believe anything.
he is doing UFOlogy a dis service that's for sure.
at this point even if he had real solid evidence no one would give him the time of day, and maybe THAT is the point a soft disclosure that only the people really interested in UFO's or fringe aviation will recognize. and the rest will dismiss as BS. And later in time the government can be like we told you but you didnt believe.
i guess what im trying to say Tom is playing the role of a useful idiot

So it's all about the people he's working with and their job titles?
That was Tom's final gambit when pushed by Joe Rogan, "dude, just read the bio's of the people on my team".
Ohhh, you mean the people who have worked with you closely for years now, wholly unaware that you believe every UFO story and obvious, well known hoax videos on Youtube? To the point that you'll go on a popular talkshow and implicate your whole team and all your presumed high-level gov/mil support in your toddler-level gullibility? Well their fancy titles are sure to outshine that turd tornado!
Occam's Razor tells me that his team, and indeed any agency involved in his businesses for whatever reason, are not very clever. Delonge hasn't made a dent on the frequency of UFO sightings, or the capability of any person with a phone to capture one and upload it at any time. He hasn't made Ufology look much worse, it's done that very well on its own. He hasn't purposely or inadvertently leaked any new info. Ummm, the sci-fi entertainment world has been chugging right along without him, blowing up box offices and streaming services.
He and his team bring nothing to the table, besides a flimsy vehicle to make money off a generation of sci-fi fans using a bumbling hipster frontman and the glint of fancy titles. How I would have loved to have been wrong.

I find the assertion the people involved are just idiots is not compatible with who they are and where they've recently been.

You better brace yourself, because there's a lot more coming. And I know it's hard to digest. Doesn't matter. It's coming.
How comes I think there is more here than most posters in this thread think possible? Am I just naive? Possibly. But I will give them 1 year before I make my final judgement. For me ANY disclosure of technology or unexplained phenomena is better than the zero-zilch-nothing we have had for ages.

In one of Tom's Twitter posts referenced above, he basically refutes Joe Rogan by asking people to read the bios/credentials of his team members.
He does have a point. I can't see why they'd all risk their reputations if this was all BS. Tom did mention the day of or right after the TTSA announcement that they were planning on showing more evidence, but for whatever reason that fell through
