Late last week, Ralph Blumenthal and Leslie Kean of the New York Times published an article titled “No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon’s U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public”
Describing a Pentagon programme researching encounters between military pilots and unidentified aerial vehicles.
Since the programme “deals with secret subjects” but is not itself classified, Pentagon officials “will not discuss the programme,” Blumenthal and Kean wrote.
“However, it was included in a report released last month by a Senate committee that detailed funding for U.S. intelligence agencies in the coming fiscal year.
According to the report, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force’s stated mission is “to standardise collection and reporting” on sightings of UAVs.
And that the programme plans to release at least some of its findings to the public 180 days after the intelligence authorization act is signed into law.”
In an interview with The Times, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he “came to the conclusion” that the government possessed UFO documentation.
An Overview of the Pentagon’s Efforts to Collect and Study UAP
The New York Times published an article into UAP encounters in 2017, alongside multiple videos documenting strange, inexplicable aerial phenomena.
Defense Department investigations under the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program have been ongoing since 2007, according to the article.
As time has progressed, the Pentagon has begun to formally release the recordings and previously classified information about the contacts.
The pressure from Congress on the task team to divulge all information about the inexplicable encounters has recently increased.
Critiquing the “Alien” Hypothesis
At the same time, the media has paid a lot of attention to all this oddness, with front-page stories in the New York Times and New Yorker and 13,000-word essays in both publications.
Not to mention major coverage on 60 Minutes and other prime-time television shows. A substantial group of believers has remained unwavering in their.
“We told you so” claims, convinced that the objects seen allegedly gliding through our skies are in fact alien spaceships that have been visiting Earth for a very long time under the guise of UFOs or UAPs.
U.S. Navy ships and fighter planes have been entangled with or tailgated by UFOs for over a decade, and the Department of Defense has been covertly recording and analysing the phenomenon (UFOs).
The public became aware of these strange sightings in 2017, thanks to recordings and reports from eyewitnesses.
Prompting Congress to request a report from the Pentagon detailing what the United States government knows about UAPs.
