For decades, Americans have been fascinated with unidentified flying objects. And during all that time, conspiracies have sparked up about what exactly the government knows about UFOs.
Of course, when the government changes its tune on UFO research, it’s difficult to get a full grasp of what’s going on. And they did just that recently when it came to a video showing a legit unidentified flying object or… U.F.O.
Surely you’ve seen THIS screenshot, right?
In fact, Popular Mechanics poked a hole in a Pentagon spokesperson’s statement by discovering that a covert Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) program still goes on today despite being told otherwise.
Further validation has arisen with a recent New York Times report that clarified that the government’s UFO unit “deals with classified matters” while operating in the Office of Naval Intelligence.
In June, the Senate authorized appropriations for the fiscal year 2021 for the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force.
The June Senate Committee Report included:
The Committee remains concerned that there is no unified, comprehensive process within the Federal Government for collecting and analyzing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat.
The Committee understands that the relevant intelligence may be sensitive; nevertheless, the Committee finds that the information sharing and coordination across the Intelligence Community has been inconsistent, and this issue has lacked attention from senior leaders.
Senator Marco Rubio chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
He told a Florida CBS affiliate that he wants to find out who’s responsible for unidentified aircraft spotted over American military bases.
The Florida senator on the recent activity:
“That to me is a national security risk and one we should be looking into.”
While some think the UFO hail from foreign entities, others see another possibility.
Harry Reid, a former Senator who played a significant role in helping secure funds for the original UFO program, told the Times that the materials from crashes of objects of unknown origin should be retrieved and studied.
However, he quickly clarified in a tweet…
Eric Davis, an astrophysicist who consulted with the Pentagon’s original UFO program, only backed up the out-of-this-world theory.
Davis examined materials and concluded that “we couldn’t make [them] ourselves.”
He also briefed a Department of Defense Agency in March about retrieving materials from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.”
Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough confirmed the DOD is “creating a task force to gain knowledge and insight into the nature and origins of UAPs.”
Ultimately, who knows what’s going on behind closed doors. But perhaps we’re one step closer to finding out the truth about UFOs.
