US Navy drafts new UFO reporting guidelines

Senior officials are putting together new guidelines to help pilots and other personnel report UFO sightings.
Recently it emerged that between 2007 and 2012 the Pentagon had been involved in a secretive $22M project known as the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program which was set up to investigate credible sightings of unidentified flying objects over US air space.

Among these were reports by US military pilots of unknown objects traveling at impossible speeds without any visible means of propulsion, or hovering without any apparent means of lift.

Now it appears as though the process of reporting a UFO is about to become a little bit easier as evidenced by the upcoming introduction of a new formal reporting process.
"There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years," a spokesman told Politico.

"For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [US Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report. As part of this effort, the Navy is updating and formalizing the process by which reports of any such suspected incursions can be made to the cognizant authorities."

"A new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting is in draft."

Exactly what this means for the investigation of military UFO sightings remains unclear, but at least more pilots will be likely to come forward if they've seen something.

"Right now, we have situation in which UFOs and UAPs are treated as anomalies to be ignored rather than anomalies to be explored," said former Pentagon intelligence official Chris Mellon.

Thanks for being as wrong as you always are. I am not disagreeing with the US Navy. You really need to apply some basic reading and comprehension practices. Fallacy in this post: "the military has changed procedure to process this sudden intake of sightings" That is not true. Please try to read the material presented.

What we should all realize....is the clear and present danger of what these foo fighters that have invaded Earth's atmosphere and land mass could be capable of. They and their starships could be very dangerous --- imho --- and should not be treated lightly. We should also be thankful that they (ufonauts) seemingly don't have an imperialistic spirit at this time ---- Or are they waiting for just the right time to conquer our planet?  But at this present time...they do rule our skies --- imo --- and they're the "top guns". Peace be with them...

Can you provide any evidence of starships? So far there seems to be nothing.  Are there any (ufonauts)? I see nothing to support that case. You claim "they do rule our skies" . Really? Why makes you think that is the case?

You can bad mouth UFO’s all you like but when you ridicule the fine job the military does you take it too far. Yes you are disagreeing with the U.S. Navy and it’s conclusions on UFO flight characteristics and the concerns it has. In fact you’re anti- UFO stance is quite insulting to the fine job the Military does to identify, catalog and protect the USA from all threats.

Or maybe the Navy wants their personnel to report drones infringing on their air space

You are free to support your claims. Please support your claims. Here is what appear to be fallaces in this post: I bad mouth UFOs. That I ridicule the military That I disagree with US Navy conclusions on UFO flight characteristics That I ever disagreed with military concerns about UFOs It is clear that everything in your post is your typical hodgepodge of falsehoods and fallacies. Have you ever considered being truthful?

Captain Risky posted an old well understood video from 2004. It comes from the AATIP which was disbanded becasue it produced nothing but paperwork according to Senator Reid and his staff. Here is a new analysis I had not seen before that makes it clear that this is nothing unusual as TTSA claims. Here is the conclusion Captain Risky seems to be confused with the claims from the TTSA and the military. Clearly the issue is with the TTSA and their spokesman, Elizondo the paperwork producer. Here is another analysis https://www.metabunk.org/2004-uss-nimitz-tic-tac-ufo-flir-footage-flir1.t9190/ The... [More]

I see that everything you stated about me was a lie, a bald faced lie. Had there been any truth to what you stated you could have defended it. There wasn't. You just posted lies. In the future you should consider being truthful. Here are the lies you posted about me. I bad mouth UFOs. That I ridicule the military That I disagree with US Navy conclusions on UFO flight characteristics That I ever disagreed with military concerns about UFOs It is clear that everything in your post was a lie. Have you ever considered being truthful?
