“UAPs [Unexplained Ariel Phenomenom] are unexplained, it’s true. But they are real. They need to be investigated. And any threats they pose need to be mitigated.”
You have to remember that UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object. A lot of us connect it to aliens but it could be anything.
It’s more fun to think about aliens unless it’s the ones in Independence Day or Alien.
Is there life beyond our planet? The Pentagon provided possible proof to Congress with declassified photos and videos. The military calls them Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP).
Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie and Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray explained to the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Counterintelligence, Counterterrorism, and Counterproliferation how the Pentagon organized all its reports on the UFOs:
“For too long, the stigma associated with UAPs has gotten in the way of good intelligence analysis. Pilots avoided reporting or were laughed at when they did. DOD officials relegated the issue to the backroom or swept it under the rug entirely, fearful of a skeptical national security community,” Carson said. “Today, we know better. UAPs are unexplained, it’s true. But they are real. They need to be investigated. And any threats they pose need to be mitigated.”
Last year’s report released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force found no evidence to suggest the objects are extraterrestrial or from a foreign adversary — but the report also could not explain most of the objects.
The men held a classified hearing but in the public hearing, Bray said 400 sightings happened since the Pentagon released its report last year. They mostly happen “in military training areas or other designated airspace.”
Bray played some videos for Congress:
He showed lawmakers a video of one UAP observed by a Navy pilot in 2021, a “spherical object” that “quickly passes by the cockpit of the aircraft.”
“I do not have an explanation for what this specific object is,” Bray said.
Another video showed a triangular object floating off the West Coast as seen through night-vision goggles. An image of a similar object, also seen through night-vision goggles, was captured off another coast years later. Bray said the UAP Task Force concluded that these triangular objects were “unmanned aerial systems,” and that their triangular appearance was the result of light passing through the night-vision goggles before being recorded by an SLR camera.
The Pentagon has not recovered any wreckage. It also does not have proof the objects are alien.
The military does not have recorded collisions with these UFOS but Bray “noted there had been at least 11 ‘near-misses.'” They have never tried to communicate with the objects.DONATE
