  • After half a year of anticipation and a slew of very high profile incidents involving military

  • ships and aircraft, the Pentagon has finally released a congressionally mandated report

  • on unidentified flying objects.

  • And what's inside the report has sent shockwaves around the world.

  • Keep watching, as we unpack the entire recently released UFO report page by page.

  • Shortly after World War II UFO sightings began to explode across the world.

  • World War II pilots themselves had reported UFOs as well, nicknaming them Foo Fighters,

  • but UFOs went mainstream after several high profile incidents in the late 1940s and 1950s.

  • The first was Kenneth Arnold's UFO sighting, where he spotted multiple flying discs in

  • formation moving several hundred miles an hour faster than his aircraft was capable

  • of.

  • Then there was the alleged Roswell crash, which while has been thoroughly debunked by

  • now, still served to spark the public's imagination.

  • Then came the UFO invasion of Washington D.C., with multiple bright objects spotted hovering

  • over the nation's capital.

  • The US military was immediately tasked with getting to the bottom of the UFO phenomenon,

  • leading to the creation of several investigative bodies that culminated with Project Bluebook.

  • An official, and all-encompassing investigation into the UFO phenomenon, Project Bluebook

  • was canceled in 1969 after analyzing over 12,000 UFO reports.

  • Its final conclusion was stark: no UFO the project investigated ever posed a threat to

  • national security, no UFO investigated ever exhibited technology beyond the scope of what

  • was at the time modern scientific knowledge, and there was no evidence that any sighting

  • that remained unidentified was in fact extraterrestrial in origin.

  • Yet Project Blue Book did generate just over 700 incidents that the investigative body

  • could not explain.

  • Some of those incidents were truly hair-raising and included numerous highly credible witnesses,

  • such as the encounter of a UFO over a CIA-funded uranium mine in Africa, reported by a former

  • World War 2 fighter pilot who was deemed extremely competent by the CIA agents sent to debrief

  • him.

  • Or the numerous reports of hovering UFOs over American nuclear weapons storage depots and

  • missile fields, with positive contact on local radar and multiple on the ground eyewitnesses

  • amongst the security and maintenance personnel.

  • Perhaps even more chillingly, shortly after the Cold War ended and the Iron Curtain around

  • eastern europe fell, came the discovery that extremely similar incidents had been occurring

  • in Soviet missile fields and nuclear facilities as well.

  • Officially the government stopped investigating UFOs.

  • Unofficially, small internal investigations took place throughout the years as the UFO

  • phenomenon continued to be reported by both civilians and military personnel- though these

  • investigations were more concerned with discovering advanced Russian or Chinese technology and

  • not aliens.

  • Then in the early 2010s, Nevada Senator Harry Reid secured funding for an unidentified aerial

  • phenomenon program tasked with investigating UFO reports.

  • This would lead to the leaking of several pieces of very high profile video as US fighter

  • jets encountered strange flying objects off the east and west coasts.

  • Then came a shocking discovery earlier this year- while it was believed that the UAP program

  • had been terminated, the US military had recently re-started an unacknowledged investigation

  • into the phenomenon.

  • Early in 2021, the US congress mandated that the Pentagon had six months to prepare a report

  • on its findings on the UAP phenomenon, and that it should be as unclassified as possible

  • so it would be readily available to the American people.

  • A separate, classified copy of the report does exist, but that's only because this copy

  • of the report deals with the technical details of America's most advanced weapon and sensor

  • systems.

  • So what does the Pentagon's UFO report say?

  • First, this is only a preliminary report, as the Department of Defense Unidentified

  • Aerial Phenomena Task Force continues to operate and investigate the UAP phenomenon.

  • The report begins with an acknowledgment as such, and states that the Pentagon's future

  • goals is to enhance training of US military personnel so that they can better report encounters

  • with UAPs and thus help American intelligence services assess a potential threat.

  • This likely means that after decades of discouraging soldiers, airmen, sailors, and marines from

  • reporting strange things in the sky, a much more open culture of sharing UAP incidents

  • will be created to facilitate the job of the UAP task force.

  • Interestingly, the report also acknowledges that there will be a concerted effort to develop

  • new technologies for the documenting of UAPs.

  • Before moving on, the report states that overwhelmingly sensors which have captured UAP analyzed by

  • the task force were assumed to be operating correctly, though there is an acknowledgment

  • that some UAP incidents could be attributed to malfunctioning sensors.

  • Next, in the executive summary the report makes a very clear declaration that the UAP

  • task force simply lacked enough high-quality reporting to draw a firm conclusion on the

  • nature or intent of UAPs.

  • Due to a culture that discouraged service members from reporting UAPs, as well as a

  • lack of high-tech sensor assets, the task force had to limit their investigation to

  • reports between 2004 and 2021, and acknowledges that a new system of reporting UAP needs to

  • be established to better assist investigators in their task of discovering the nature and

  • intent of UAPs.

  • Shockingly though, the report then makes the following conclusion: Most of the UAP reported

  • probably do represent physical objects given that a majority of UAP were registered across

  • multiple sensors, to include radar, infrared, electro-optical, weapon seekers, and visual

  • observation.

  • What this means is that a significant portion of UAPs investigated by the task force were

  • deemed to be real, physical objects, verified by their observation across several different

  • mediums of detection simultaneously.

  • So much for glowing swamp gas.

  • The report moves on to acknowledge what UFO eyewitnesses have been stating for years,

  • that in a small number of incidents investigated the UAP exhibited very unusual flight characteristics.

  • One recent US Navy encounter for instance, documented on radar, showed several UAPs plummeting

  • from 50,000 feet to sea level in seconds, before shooting back up to even greater heights.

  • According to the UAP task force, UAPs could likely be resolved to one of five categories:

  • airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomenon, US government and US industry developmental

  • programs, foreign adversary systems, and the catchall ''other”.

  • The task force is of course mostly interested in the final two categories- foreign adversary

  • systems andother”, as both could pose a significant threat to the United States

  • of America.

  • The report goes on to state that UAPs without a doubt pose a safety risk to both military

  • and civilian flight, and a challenge to US national security.

  • If UAPs are alien in origin, then that would be an obvious threat to not just the US, but

  • global security.

  • However, the task force is most concerned with the possibility that UAPs are evidence

  • that a potential adversary has developed a breakthrough or disruptive technology which

  • the United States does not understand and cannot counter.

  • Given how the United States has used both breakthrough and disruptive technologies in

  • war to devastating effect against its adversaries, the fear of such a technology being employed

  • against the US is understandably great.

  • The report moves past the executive summary and into the details of the six month investigation.

  • Right off the bat, the UAP task force tackles the greatest challenge that it faced in completing

  • its investigation: namely that reports were hardly ever formally filed by UAP witnesses.

  • This is due to a variety of reasons, such as the lack of formal reporting procedures

  • for UAP phenomenon, which changed with the Navy adopting said procedures in 2019 and

  • the Air Force in 2020.

  • In the future, the UAP task force is hopeful that improved reporting procedures will lead

  • to better quality reports.

  • However, the task force's greatest difficulty in collecting good data was something that

  • UFO witnesses have known for decades- eyewitnesses of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon hardly,

  • if ever, spoke up about their experience for fear of ridicule or ostracization.

  • The task force's report though states that as senior military, government, and scientific

  • leadership begins to engage in the topic publicly, the stigma of reporting strange encounters

  • should lessen, leading to better data collected.

  • Another difficulty the task force encountered was that despite having very sophisticated

  • sensors, sensor systems in the US military are typically designed to fulfill very specific

  • roles- and that often means they are not very useful for identifying UAPs.

  • This is likely why the report began with an acknowledgment that new technologies needed

  • to be developed for the specific purpose of investigating UAPs.

  • The report moves on to state that the reports investigated had too little data to allow

  • for detailed trend or pattern analysis.

  • However, there was a noticeable consistency in the size, shape, and propulsion of UAPs.

  • This is a stunning conclusion, as if UAPs were merely the figments of one's imagination,

  • or random natural phenomenon, there would not be a strong consistency in the way UAPs

  • look, how big they are, and how fast they move.

  • The report goes on to state that UAP sightings also tend to be cluttered around US military

  • training and testing grounds.

  • This goes hand-in-hand with the theory long held that whatever they are, UAPs are very

  • interested in the state of our military technology.

  • Or it could be an indicator that these are very much foreign adversary systems, being

  • used to spy on US forces.

  • However, the task force acknowledges that this cluttering of UAP sightings around US

  • military training and testing grounds could simply be due to collection bias, as those

  • areas have a high concentration of sophisticated sensors and an expectation and guidance by

  • personnel involved to report any anomaly.

  • Now the report drops another bombshell.

  • Out of the hundreds of incidents investigated thus far, the task force identified 18 incidents

  • where UAPs were witnessed performing aerial maneuvers that would signify advanced technology

  • was in use.

  • These UAPs were recorded hovering in place, moving against the wind, performing extremely

  • abrupt changes in speed or direction, and displaying extremely high velocities, without

  • any known means of propulsion.

  • In a small number of these incidents, US aircraft also detected radio frequency energy emanating

  • from the objects.

  • Some of the UAPs observed also displayed some degree of signature management- or the purposeful

  • manipulation of their own electromagnetic emissions.

  • In modern militaries, signature management is a critical era of warfighting, with friendly

  • forces doing their best to screen their electromagnetic signatures from adversaries while making them

  • identifiable to allies.

  • This would imply that UAPs are employing the same form of electromagnetic security measures

  • that modern, Earth-bound militaries do.

  • The task force states that more rigorous examination of the collected data by experts is necessary

  • to ascertain if this is in fact what UAPs have been recorded doing or not, and ends

  • this section by stating that the UAPTF will continue further analysis to determine if

  • these incidents are proof of breakthrough technologies.

  • From here, the report once more states that more data is required to determine the identity

  • of UAP incidents investigated, with special attention needed on those incidents where

  • UAPs are shown to display flight characteristics which would be indicative of breakthrough

  • technologies, or signature management- which would be indicative of intelligent control

  • over an artificial object.

  • In their investigation, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force was not able to attribute

  • any of the incidents investigated to classified US weapons programs.

  • The report moves on to declare that UAPs pose a definitive threat to flight operations,

  • and could be a potential national security risk.

  • In 11 instances, pilots reported near misses with UAPs.

  • Touching on the potential for UAPs posing a national security threat, the report states

  • that the task force has initiated an effort to identify any potential technological breakthroughs

  • by potential adversaries- namely, China and Russia.

  • This likely means that significant US intelligence resources are also being redirected to the

  • effort, as now the intelligence community joins the hunt to explain UAPs.

  • Given the proximity of UAP to US military facilities, and to aircraft carrying the military's

  • most advanced sensor systems, the report seems to indicate that a high priority should be

  • placed on discovering if a potential adversary has in fact developed and fielded a disruptive

  • or breakthrough technology.

  • Because if they have, it's clear the US military is all but powerless to counter it.

  • Finally, the report ends with a call for more resources and better reporting procedures

  • across the American government and military of UAPs.

  • So does the US military believe that alien UFOs are cruising the skies above our heads?

  • Simply put, no.

  • But the report does acknowledge that a significant number of credible UFO incidents investigated

  • by the UAP task force display instances of technology that would be beyond the scope

  • of what is currently possible.

  • The UAPTF's greatest concern however remains that it's not aliens, but a potential adversary,

  • which is flying close to our most sensitive military installations, and we are all but

  • helpless to stop it.
