Pentagon’s “UFO Report”

Military officials say they have no real idea what’s going on, and need lots of money to find out. And, BTW, they couldn’t figure out what they were looking at 143 times out of 144 reports!

The Pentagon’s long-awaited report on UFOs details 143 sightings of aerial objects that cannot be explained. Titled “Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,” the report is a product of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). It’s nine pages long and while its findings are “largely inconclusive,” the report states that a small number of cases where UFOs “appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management” can’t be explained without “scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them.”…

This report didn’t come to many conclusions, but it did pose a few possible ideas. “UAP probably lacks a single explanation,” the report said. “Our analysis of the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, USG or industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and a catchall ‘other’ bin.”

Crap report masquerading as a less-than-crap report.

      Intelligent life may exist elsewhere in the universe besides Earth, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said Tuesday, and NASA is actively searching for signs. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/07/06/nasa-is-actively-searching-for-life-in-the-universe-official-says.html

      “There is no bigger question,” Hawking said, while announcing his support for Breakthrough Listen, a $100 million program to search for alien communications via radio wave and visible light observations of 1 million nearby stars and 100 galactic centers. “It is time to commit to finding the answer, to search for life beyond Earth.”
      In 2010, Hawking worried what that answer would bring, describing the dangers of first contact with aliens in a Discovery Channel documentary. “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,” Hawking says. “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.”
      “Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach,” Hawking said in the documentary, Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking.

    CO Comments: A. N09679 – STRIKE FIGHTER SQUADRON 106 – VFA-106(1) “The unknown aircraft in this latest NMA incident was a very small target [size of a suitcase], and was not detected by HW using his radar. The object was also so small it was almost impossible to detect with the naked eye at range. FACSFAC Vacapes [Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility, Virginia Capes] cannot detect a target this size if it is not squawking IFF [Identification, Friend or Foe] or communicating via radio. This presents a significant safety concern, given that this unknown aircraft was detected in an exclusive use area. I feel it may only be a matter of time before one of our F/A-18 aircraft has a mid-air collision with an unidentified UAS” [unmanned aircraft system]

    (Oct 23, 2021): “Today, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, in close collaboration with the Director of National Intelligence, directed the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security to establish within the Office of the USD(I&S) the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) as the successor to the U.S. Navy’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. The AOIMSG will synchronize efforts across the Department and the broader U.S. government to detect, identify and attribute objects of interests in Special Use Airspace (SUA), and to assess and mitigate any associated threats to safety of flight and national security.” https://www.defense.gov/News/Releases/Release/Article/2853121/dod-announces-the-establishment-of-the-airborne-object-identification-and-manag/

    “The mission of the AARO will be to synchronize efforts across the Department of Defense, and with other U.S. federal departments and agencies, to detect, identify and attribute objects of interest in, on or near military installations, operating areas, training areas, special use airspace and other areas of interest, and, as necessary, to mitigate any associated threats to safety of operations and national security,” the [Department of Defense] press release explained. “This includes anomalous, unidentified space, airborne, submerged and transmedium objects.” https://www.defense.gov/News/Releases/Release/Article/3100053/dod-announces-the-establishment-of-the-all-domain-anomaly-resolution-office/

    When the U.S. government released a much-anticipated report on UFOs a year ago, many were perplexed that it couldn’t explain 143 of the 144 sightings it examined. (In the single closed case, the report concluded the mystery object was a large, deflating balloon.) https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-57619755
