In the summer, the Pentagon announced that it had created a new commission that would study cases of human contacts with alien beings, as well as the UFO phenomenon as such. This followed after US military pilots became more likely to observe unexplained phenomena during flight. True, many were embarrassed to talk about them, fearing ridicule. And now, six months later, the Office for the Investigation of Anomalies (AARO) presented first report.
“We have not seen anything that would lead us to believe that any of the phenomena or objects that we have studied are of alien origin,” disappointed the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie.
In addition, the officer said that so far there is no evidence that aliens have ever visited the Earth or their spacecraft crashed on our planet.
Over the course of six months, employees of the department investigated several hundred applications in which unidentified objects were reported. This time, experts have focused on unusual phenomena seen in the air. People notice them most often. The statute of limitations for appeals turned out to be unimportant – both fresh messages and those from many years ago were investigated.
Most often, people mistook balloons or UAVs for UFOs.
However, project director Sean Kirkpatrick warned that due to the inability to explain the nature of some phenomena, one should not deny their danger to national security, as well as military bases, training grounds and civilians.
“It can be hostile, so we need to take it seriously,” said the project leader. – Any unauthorized system in our airspace we consider a security threat.
By the way, in May, for the first time in 50 years, Congress held hearings on UFOs, then congressmen expressed concerns – regardless of whether unknown objects are alien or new technological developments, possibly created in Russia, China or other countries, the very uncertainty creates a risk US security.
In the future, AARO employees plan to consider appeals regarding unidentified objects seen not only in the air, but also under water and even in space. From November 2004 to March 2021, the Pentagon recorded 144 unidentified aerial phenomena.
