The UFO Phenomenon

Skepticism continues to surround Pentagon's new UFO office

Not everyone is convinced that the new office will end the secrecy surrounding the phenomenon.
When the Pentagon announced last year that it was establishing a brand new office dedicated to finding the truth behind the UFO phenomenon, reactions were mixed to say the least.

While many welcomed the move and hailed it as an end to the secrecy that has surrounded UFO investigation for many decades, others were deeply skeptical - instead suggesting that the move could bring about the complete opposite, with UFO data being harder to access than ever.

"This is a subject with a provable history of secrecy, and anything that lacks a new openness about the information is subject to more, possibly inappropriate control," said MUFON's Ron James.

"We don't see that this means new resources will be dedicated to the matter. We believe that considerable resources have always been dedicated to the matter at some level inside deep government and industry."

Last year, Luis Elizondo - who previously headed up a unit that was responsible for assessing military UFO reports - also expressed his concerns surrounding the move.

"If we want 70 more years of secrecy on this topic, then the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security is the perfect place to put it," he said.
"They've had four years so far, and we have little in the way of efforts serving the public interest."

Lobbyist Stephen Bassett, however, remains confident in the new office.

"No, this isn't a new psyops program. It is a planned effort to end the truth embargo," he said.

"While I appreciate those who are skeptical, that group has tried to find the dark side of every development - the hidden hand."

"This is a sea change brought about by the work of thousands of people and activists over 70 years. But some of these people can't help but see it as a clever black ops mission."

As things stand, it looks like we will just have to wait and see how things pan out over the next few years.

Quoting Luis Elizondo: "If we want 70 more years of secrecy on this topic, then the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security is the perfect place to put it,"    Simple as that

Why would anyone ever believe anything they say on the subject? They have never told the truth, buried reports, bullied witnesses and made the general public mock each other all in the name of secrecy. This time it's different though.

Different how? It’s the same BS excuses as always. The government is never going tell us anything but lies.

I was being sarcastic.

I agree with you, they usually do tell the big lie. But it leaves us to wonder, why? what are they up to? for the first 70 years, all they did was bury the UFO, now they can't give enough of it to us. It sounds like one way is deception and the other by default  must be akin to the truth. It's contradictory, anyway. One thing I will say in their favor at this point in the new era, when they say that "UAPs exist", they are telling the truth (to me) because this is something I have already known and embraced in my life. After that, I cannot sense at all or with any degree of confidence anything ... [More]

Another lie to throw sand in the eye of the world, hid away secret weapons and war technologies manufacturad under the illusion of space invaders.

Times change so do mind sets and labels whats ridiculously hysterical is the dear true believers who insist ( and have for decades ) that the day of disclosure is upon us, Get past that notion, no way to keep that global secret with all the eyes public and private on the skies but those blind believers keep braying. I dont blame the change from "UFO" to "UAP" ufo was too dated and ruined by those noisy silly true believer insisting ufo= aliens ive seen that same camp trying to ruin uap claiming it equals alien, the part they miss is the definitions of the words, "Unexplained" is just that not ...
