The UFO Phenomenon

Pentagon releases new report denying UFO and alien cover-up claims

The report seeks to quash claims that the US government is in possession of reverse-engineered alien technology.
The idea that the US has been working on top secret black projects based on technologies obtained by reverse-engineering crashed UFOs has been around for decades, yet it wasn't until relatively recently that the claims of whistleblowers such as David Grusch have leant particular credence to the notion.

Speaking before Congress last year, he described a "multi-decade UAP crash retrieval and reverse-engineering program" and claimed that the US had been aware of "non-human" activity for years.

Now, though, the Pentagon has released a new report that essentially moves to debunk all notion of the US government withholding information on UFOs and extraterrestrial visitors.

"A consistent theme in popular culture involves a particularly persistent narrative that the [US government]... recovered several off-world spacecraft and extraterrestrial biological remains, that it operates a program or programs to reverse-engineer the recovered technology, and that it has conspired since the 1940s to keep this effort hidden from the United States congress and the American public," the report, released by the defense department, reads.
"The proliferation of television programs, books, movies and the vast amount of internet and social media content ... most likely has influenced the public conversation on this topic, and reinforced these beliefs within some sections of the population."

The report goes on to say that the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) was granted full access to and has reviewed all official files concerning the topic dating back as far as 1945.

The department found "no evidence that any US government investigation, academic-sponsored research, or official review panel has confirmed that any sighting of a UAP [unexplained anomalous phenomenon] represented extraterrestrial technology."

It also insisted that there is "no empirical evidence for claims that the [US government] and private companies have been reverse-engineering extraterrestrial technology."

I don’t trust anyone implicitly. It’s a matter of common sense and critical thinking. With the millions of amateur astronomers and skywatchers all over the world, why would anyone even think that we would need to depend on government or governments to disclose anything? This isn’t the 1950s anymore. Are other multiple governments involved in this cover up to hide knowledge of alien craft from their citizens as well? How exactly would that work? Countries can’t come together on earthbound matters, but somehow this is the issue that unites them? What is the logic here? Is it just the US ... [More]

Sorry I took so long to get back to you. To answer your questions honestly, I don't know. I do know that when I suggested possibilities, I was met with derision. I have a whole bunch of possibilities floating around in my noggin, but that's all they are, possible explanations. That not what you want. You want direct proof which I can't supply. But to me, the preponderance of anecdotal evidence over the years, decades, and centuries suggests there's something to it. That, and the US govt's actions suggest they know a lot more than they're letting on. I thought Sky's thread would be a good place... [More]

Are you trying to gaslight others here?!  What is that you are asking?  Do you think that the state and its officials cannot engage in a cover up whatever this is (not necessarily UFOs). The state has a lot of power to do a lot of things which either you are not aware of or you are pretending you are not aware of.

The State refers to    A state is a political division of a body of people that occupies a territory defined by frontiers. The state is sovereign in its territory (also referred to as jurisdiction) and has the authority to enforce a system of rules over the people living inside it

Yes I am, just as everyone else unless gaslighting is in place again.

*sighs* another who doesn't grasp the definition of 'gaslighting' and how it is used in modern psychological clinical terminology.   Back on topic, if you read my entire post in relation and response to Phantom309 you would know the question.   Don't try diverting this to the matter of "can they". My specific question has to do with how and by what means have as the US government covered anything up?    As @Dejarma and others have appropriately asked previously, "If it's been covered up, how do we know about it?" If the cover has been blown where is the irrefutable evidence to corroborate... [More]
