An upcoming report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), more popularly know as UFOs, is scheduled to be released by the Pentagon this summer, and according to a former official, it contains some pretty shocking revelations.
Unbeknownst to most earthlings, a provision calling for the release of the report to the public was tucked into the behemoth $2.3 trillion Covid-19 relief bill signed by former President Donald Trump soon before he left office. The report contains some incidents that are “difficult to explain”, according to former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe during a fascinating interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo.
Reported sightings of UFOs have been collected by the United States’ Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF). Ratcliffe, who served as the DNI under Trump, said he wanted to get the report out before he left office, but was unable to get it declassified in time.
Among many intriguing claims made by Ratcliffe, he said that, “there are a lot more sightings then have been made public.” He also noted that some objects have exhibited behavior seemingly defying the laws of physics, such as breaking the sound barrier without producing a sonic boom.
“When we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have been seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery, that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain, movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom,” he said.
“In short things that we are observing that are difficult to explain.”
Ratcliffe asserted that a known, more conventional explanation is always sought. However, some of the objects defy simple explanation.
“When we see these things we always look for a plausible explanation. Weather can cause disturbances, visual disturbances, and sometimes we wonder whether or not our adversaries have technologies that are a little bit further down the road than we thought or than we realized,” he said. “There are instances where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things that we’ve seen, and when that information becomes declassified, I’ll be able to talk a little bit more about that”
When asked by Bartiromo where the alleged UFOs have been seen, Ratcliffe replied that, “There have been sightings all over the world.”
“And when we talk about sightings, the other thing I will tell you, it’s not just a pilot or just a satellite or some intelligence collection,” continued Ratcliffe. “Usually, we have multiple sensors that are picking up these things.”
Ratcliffe is actually not the only official to weigh in on the topic.
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, sounded the alarm in a recent interview with TMZ, warning, “that there’s stuff flying over military installations and no one knows what it is, and it isn’t ours.”
“If stuff’s flying over the top of your most sensitive installations, and it’s not ours, and no one knows whose it is – you should find out who it is, and tell us,” Rubio said.
When asked if he thought the UAP were extraterrestrials, Rubio replied that he didn’t know what the objects were, and acknowledged the taboo around the subject. “I don’t know that there are aliens, I don’t know that they ever visited here. When you talk about that stuff everybody gets stigmatized about it and no one wants to sound weird.”
Rubio seemed equally concerned that the UFOs could be superior technology belonging to a foreign military, “maybe it’s another country and that would be bad news too,” he said.
Regardless of what the UAP might be, both Ratcliffe and Rubio agree that the American people deserve answers.
“I think it will be healthy for as much of this information to get out there as possible so that the American people can see some of the things we’ve been dealing with,” said Ratcliffe.
