The UFO Phenomenon

Pentagon's UFO office has received 'several hundred' new reports

The new office was set up earlier this year to track and investigate reports of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs).
Known as the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), this new UFO-focused arm of the Pentagon was founded following the revelation that US Navy pilots had been pursuing (and even recording) unknown objects moving at extreme speeds off the coast of the United States.

Back in June 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence reported that 144 such incidents had been recorded between 2004 and 2021, including 80 that had been picked up on multiple sensors.

Most recently, anomaly office director Sean Kirkpatrick revealed to reporters on Friday that "several hundred more" reports had been received and were being investigated by officials.

This suggests that the AARO is continuing to look into the phenomenon and that the incidents being investigated are not limited to historic accounts of US Navy encounters from before 2021.
An updated report on these newer cases is expected from the Director of National Intelligence by the end of the year.

So far, however, the office has maintained that it has found no concrete evidence of alien visitors.

"We have not seen anything, and we're still very early on, that would lead us to believe that any of the objects that we have seen are of alien origin," Ronald Moultrie, under secretary of defense for intelligence and security, was quoted as saying.

"Any unauthorized system in our airspace we deem as a threat to safety."

They don't move in a linear fashion. I want to say that they bend time and space, how they do it is completely beyond my understanding.

Nice!  What do you think UFO’s really are?  We know they are real.

It's nice that they don't have anything serious to do. Maybe they can stop starting wars all over the planet.

They have almost $900 billion to spend next year and we're not directly involved in any wars, so I guess they're moving into flying saucer research.

"we're not directly involved in any wars" Except for the proxy war in Ukraine.

Yes, that's what "directly" means. The war in Ukraine accounts for 6% of Pentagon spending.

They're directly spending tax payer money when American families are struggling to put food on the table. I'm more into Americans being able to feed their families than I am into this war mongering.

That $900 billion is putting food on the tables of 3,500,000 Americans who work in the defense industry. Unfortunately we've been in a war economy since the Reagan era and we can't get out of it.
