Pentagon report criticizes approach to defending country against UFOs

Declassified government documents suggest that a lack of UFO tracking represents a threat to national security.
It goes without saying that it's pretty much impossible to prepare for a scenario in which the world comes under attack from an advanced extraterrestrial civilization.

Given that we have no way to understand the capabilities of such an attacker nor potentially any way to even see it coming, world governments would be forgiven for not being ready for such an eventuality.

Even so, a recently discovered declassified document has revealed that Pentagon think tanks have highlighted the potential threat posed by UFOs (whether or not they happen to be alien in origin) and the country's lack of preparedness for an attack.

According to the Office of Inspector General (OIG), the United States' lack of sufficient UFO analysis and tracking capabilities "poses a threat to military forces and national security."

Entitled "Evaluation of the DoD's Actions Regarding Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena", the report reads:
"DoD efforts to identify and understand UAP has been irregular because of competing priorities, lack of substantive progress, and inconclusive findings. However, military pilots have continued to report UAP incidents despite the sporadic efforts of the DoD to identify, report, and analyze the events."

"The DoD has not issued a comprehensive UAP response plan that identifies roles, responsibilities, requirements, and coordination procedures for detecting, reporting, collecting, analyzing, and identifying UAP incidents."

"As a result, the DoD response to UAP incidents is uncoordinated and concentrated within each Military Department."

"DoD Components have largely excluded geographic combatant commands, which are responsible for detecting, deterring, and preventing threats and attacks against the United States and its territories, possessions, and bases in their respective areas of responsibility, in developing UAP policies and procedures."


To address these concerns, the report lists 11 recommendations, including that the "DoD issue a policy to integrate roles, responsibilities, requirements, and coordination procedures regarding UAP into existing intelligence, counterintelligence, and force protection policies and procedures."

It also recommends that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff issues guidance to 'the geographic combatant commanders regarding unidentified anomalous phenomena detection, reporting, collection, analysis, and identification within their area of responsibility."

I dont know about that, but I can see how with our post-Industrial ultra biased mega limited understanding we believe them having many different crafts. In reality they might have only one shapeshifting type.

This is a great reinforcement of the spirit of @Hazzard post. Making the claim fit the narrative.

Surrender, throw everyone else under the bus, and hope the aliens keep me around for entertainment. Just so long as there is no anal probing involved.

"...the DoD may not have developed a comprehensive and coordinated strategy for  understanding, identifying, and protecting against unidentified phenomena that may present  a safety threat to military personnel and territory.9".    Pilots should always use their indicators and give priority to non-earth vehicles? ?

The problem wit UAP is the first word as always, unidentified. We don't know what they are. That means we don't know that they're aliens. We don't know what they are but common Sense tells us they are you probably not aliens. Oh wait ...There is no common sense these days because common sense is just a rational thinking process common to most people. Most people don't think rationally these days. How can they, when they are inundated 24/7 365 by various media outlets.

And they're both laughing about how silly the agreement was , it seems.

I think Gorby and Ronnie dreamed up that whole Perestroika nonsense including the Berlin Wall.  It ended the Cold War for us and allowed Russia to walk away  from the Union crashing down on top of their little Communist heads.
