The Defense Department has been briefed on “highly unusual discoveries.’
One consultant to the agency has briefed Defense Department officials of some highly unusual discoveries ― including items retrieved from “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth,” The New York Times said.
The Pentagon claimed they had disbanded their UFO unit, but in reality, it seems that the unit was just moved and had its name changed. The report said the program, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, was “to standardize collection and reporting” on sightings of unexplained aerial vehicles, and was to report at least some of its findings to the public every six months.
The Pentagon’s UFO Unit is not specifically to find aliens.
The main goal UFO unit is to see if confounding sightings are actually advanced technology from rival nations that could be useful to the United States’ military.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio also indicated that he was concerned that supposed UFOs could be advanced tech from foreign nations. “We have things flying over our military bases and places where we’re conducting military exercises, and we don’t know what it is, and it isn’t ours,” Sen. Rubio, who is acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CBS4 in Miami last week.
He continued, “I would say that, frankly, that if it’s something from outside this planet, that might actually be better than the fact that we’ve seen some technological leap on behalf of the Chinese or the Russians or some other adversary that allows them to conduct this sort of activity.”
The military may have come in contact with a UFO back in 2017.
Several videos were leaked in 2017 showing encounters with fast-moving objects, including one given the nickname “Tic Tac” because it looked like one of the candies of the same name. This object, still not publicly identified, dropped from 60,000 feet to just 50 feet in a matter of seconds.
“The part that drew our attention was how it wasn’t behaving within the normal laws of physics,” pilot Chad Underwood told New York magazine last year. The military has since confirmed that the footage is real and declassified it later.
Twitter commented on the news with disbelief over the under reaction.
With 2020 being one insane event after the next, it’s no surprise that when the Pentagon confirmed possible UFO activity, no one really cared. One user wrote, “2020 is fucking crazy. Like, we just learned that the Pentagon has captured UFOs and “unearthly vehicles” and no one is even talking about it.”
Another commented on the timing of this release as a purposeful distraction from the President of the United States poll numbers. They wrote, “Whatever it takes to distract and deflect himself from his utter failures.”
