US Navy responds to politician's UFO query


Posted on Saturday, 7 March, 2020 | Comment icon 1 comment

What does the US Navy have to say about high-profile UFO incidents ? Image Credit: US Navy
The full unredacted letter, which was sent to Rep. Mark Walker, has now been released to the public.
Back on July 6th, 2019, Walker wrote a letter to the US Navy requesting answers regarding sightings of unidentified flying objects and in particular, high-profile cases such as the USS Nimitz incident.

A response, which was originally sent to Walker on July 31st by then-Undersecretary of the Navy Thomas Modly, has now been fully released to the public.

"There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled training ranges and designated air space in recent years," Modly wrote.

"The Department of the Navy (DON) takes these reports very seriously and continues to log sightings and fully investigate the accounts."

"The wide proliferation and availability of inexpensive unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has increasingly made airspace de-confliction an issue for our aviators."
"Naval aircrews have been provided reporting guidance to determine the frequency and location of UAS operating in training areas."

"The guidance supports objective, data-driven analysis of incursions. The DON continues to dedicate resources to the tracking and investigation of reports that could affect the safety of our aircrews."

The letter seems to sidestep any mention of the USS Nimitz Incident or other well-publicized UFO cases and instead focuses on concerns posed by conventional unmanned aerial drones.

"While I am encouraged the Under Secretary of the Navy confirmed that UAP encounters are fully investigated, there is frustration with the lack of answers to specific questions about the threat that superior aircraft flying in United States airspace may pose," Walker told Politico.

While it seems highly unlikely that the US Navy is not actively investigating such incidents, it seems equally unlikely that it is ever going to discuss them openly, even with members of Congress.

LOL the Navy told Congress that they didn't have a need to know. Reminds me of what I read about WWII. A Congressman made a statement that the Japanese didn't set their depth charges deep enough and that our subs were more or less safe. Well that changed quickly. The Japanese didn't think our subs could run as deep as they did. http://www.ww2pacific.com/congmay.html Keep em in the dark.
