The UFO Phenomenon

Head of Pentagon's UFO office plays down claims made at hearing

Sean Kirkpatrick, head of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, has written a memo about the revelations.
Last week's subcommittee hearing on the topic of UFOs (or UAPs) certainly brought some interesting claims to light, including those of David Grusch who maintained that the US government had found "non-human biologics" at UFO crash sites and had been covering up evidence for years.

Not everyone has been too impressed with these assertions, however, with Sean Kirkpatrick - who heads up the Pentagon's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office - noting in a recent memo that his team had found no evidence to back up anything that Grusch was claiming.

"To be clear, AARO has yet to find any credible evidence to support the allegations of any reverse engineering program for non-human technology," he wrote.
"I cannot let yesterday's hearing pass without sharing how insulting it was to the officers of the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community who chose to join AARO, many with not unreasonable anxieties about the career risks this would entail."

In addition, Grusch had allegedly failed to approach the office about his claims.

"Contrary to assertions made in the hearing, the central source of those allegations has refused to speak with AARO," Kirkpatrick wrote.

  LINK: SETI Institute Shreds UFO Whistleblower's Claims About Alien Corpses   Extraordinary Claims Remember all that buzz about the UFO whistleblower who testified before Congress last week that the government had alien carcasses? According to an actual alien hunter, those claims have some serious issues.

Why are you asking me why not go to the nsa website and read it? Where exactly were you trying to go with that, that you keep hitting dead ends?

Oh boy an article about why an "actual alien hunter" thinks that the testifying officers' claims "feel hollow". That is a much more substantial proof than the senior servicemen who videotaped the ufos testifying about thier experiences with them. Good one. That is so funny only it was barely more than a week ago the argument posted here was "why do only hillbillies see them". Ironically enough, i lived a few miles from the seti observatory for a long time. can't get any more hillbilly than that area.  Also why is it even a debate about evidence that was confidential and none of us have seen y...

They were rhetorical questions. My apologies, I thought you would get that by how the sentences were structured.

Transistors, lasers, masers, and metamaterials are inventions often attributed to aliens in UFOlogy.

Problem with that is there is historical evidence of the evolution of all those items.  None of those things just sprang into existence.

You may find that the documentary evidence to support their research is somewhat sketchy.  I heard that the transistor research in particular was very sketchy, as in, not nearly enough of it.  You also have to note that if intelligence communities create a false identity for an agent, then so too will they create a backstory for their fraudulent patents harvested from alien craft.
