Pentagon set to launch new UFO task force

According to reports, a new task force dedicated to investigating UFOs will be unveiled in the next few days.
While the US government's secretive Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) closed its doors back in 2012, rumors had been circulating for years that efforts to investigate these objects didn't stop there; speculation that was seemingly confirmed in a report released back in July which suggested that the Office of Naval Intelligence continues to run such a program to this day.

Now though, it has been reported that the Pentagon may be about to announce a brand new UFO task force, at least, that is, according to two officials from the Department of Defense.

The new task force, which will be reportedly headed up by Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norquist, comes just months after the Pentagon released footage of US Navy pilots pursuing fast-moving objects over US airspace that it admitted were genuinely unidentified.

Such sightings would undoubtedly be the focus of any new investigative government task force.
The Department of Defense however has so far failed to respond to media requests for comment.

"We have things flying over our military bases and places where we are conducting military exercises, and we don't know what it is and it isn't ours, so that's a legitimate question to ask," Sen. Marco Rubio - acting chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee - said back in July.

"Frankly, if it's something from outside this planet, that might actually be better than the fact that we've seen some sort of technological leap on behalf of the Chinese or the Russians or some other adversary."

Update: Pentagon officially confirms UFO task force.

At this point in 2020 would it even surprise anyone if they suddenly made full disclosure?

I wouldn't be surprised if we got more disclosure this year, seeing how it's all going. I'm curious if this will end up leading to a similar conclusion that previous investigations have - UFOs as some kind of plasma based phenomenon...

Distraction much?

UFOs could be a projected delusion, but the motive for such a delusion, remains.

I don't think that "believe in UFOs" is an expression that makes any sense. UFO simply means Unidentified Flying Object, and many of those have been seen throughout human history, i.e. phenomena/objects in the sky that have not been possible to identify despite of thorough investigations. Therefore, UFOs are not something you can choose to believe in or not, it is a fact that they exist. The mistake that many people do is to mix up UFOs with aliens/extraterrestrial beings, which is definitely something you can choose to believe in or not believe in, there is no evidence for aliens visiting ear...

Not everyone has the same life experiences, especially when it comes to paranormal activity. I was a science major, and I’m actually pretty strict when it comes to believing in anything beyond the realm of normal experience. The problem is, the level of sophistication underlying this amazing planet, is barely comprehensible to us, so we should expect the paranormal. As long as the Pentagon gets through it’s tiny brain, that they need to stop selling weapons to other nations, and claiming any part of outer space as our territory, I will be 100% behind our current plight. True friends of humanit... [More]
