How to Interpret the Latest Government UFO Report
The long-awaited government report on UFOs has finally been released. What did we learn? And what does it say about the future of ufology?
As we’ve previously reported, the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2021 called on the Director of National Intelligence, as well as the heads of other intelligence agencies, to submit a report and detailed analysis of all unidentified aerial phenomena held by the U.S. government. That report has just been released.
Nick Pope, who worked for the U.K.’s Ministry of Defense investigating UFOs, said, “The bottom line in this nine-page report is ‘yes, these things are real, yes they interact with our military jets, our aircraft carriers (and) destroyers, our pilots see them, our radar operators track them, but no, we don’t have the faintest idea of what we’re dealing with.'”
What We Learned From the Latest Congressional UFO Hearing
The first public UFO hearing on Capitol Hill in more than 50 years was held this past week — here’s what we learned and what was left out…
A historic public hearing this week on Capitol Hill, as the Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee held the first open UFO hearing since 1966. This hearing came after some lawmakers were reportedly not impressed by the classified briefings they had received as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
In his opening statement, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray, said, “We have seen an increasing number of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft or objects in military-controlled training areas, training ranges, and other designated airspace. Reports of sightings are frequent and continuing.”
He went on to say that one of the reasons they have more reports is their work to destigmatize the idea of reporting UFOs and putting into place a system to report them. Despite there being no major revelations, there were several moments to note in the hearing.
