In the summer, the Pentagon announced that it had created a new commission that would study cases of human contact with extraterrestrial beings, as well as the UFO phenomenon as such. This happened after US military pilots were more likely to observe unexplained phenomena during flight. It is true that many were ashamed to talk about them, fearing ridicule. And now, six months later, the Anomaly Research Office (AARO) has submitted the first report.
“We have not seen anything that leads us to believe that any of the phenomena or objects that we have studied are of extraterrestrial origin,” said Ronald Moultrie, assistant secretary of defense for intelligence and security.
In addition, the official said that so far there is no evidence that aliens have ever visited Earth or that their spacecraft has crashed on our planet.
Over the course of six months, department employees investigated several hundred requests reporting unidentified objects. This time, experts have focused on the unusual phenomena seen in the air that people notice most often. The statute of limitations for appeals turned out to be unimportant: both new messages and those from many years ago were investigated.
Most of the time, people mistook balloons or UAVs for UFOs.
However, project director Sean Kirkpatrick cautioned that due to the inability to explain the nature of some phenomena, their danger to national security, as well as to military bases, training camps, and civilians, should not be denied. .
“It can be hostile, so we have to take it seriously,” said the project leader. – Any unauthorized system in our airspace that 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 concern, regardless of whether the unknown objects are strange or new technological developments, possibly created in Russia, China or other countries, uncertainty itself creates a risk to US security.
In the future, AARO employees plan to consider appeals related to unidentified objects seen not only in the air, but also underwater and even in space. From November 2004 to March 2021, the Pentagon recorded 144 unidentified aerial phenomena.
