The Pentagon finally admits that it investigates UFOs

The Pentagon has finally uttered the words it always avoided when discussing the possible existence of UFOs — “unidentified aerial phenomena” — and admits that it still investigates reports of them.

Department of Defense spokesman said a secret government initiative called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program “did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena.”

And while the DOD says it shut down the AATIP in 2012, spokesman Christopher Sherwood acknowledged that the department still investigates claimed sightings of alien spacecraft.

“The Department of Defense is always concerned about maintaining positive identification of all aircraft in our operating environment, as well as identifying any foreign capability that may be a threat to the homeland,” Sherwood said.

“The department will continue to investigate, through normal procedures, reports of unidentified aircraft encountered by US military aviators in order to ensure defense of the homeland and protection against strategic surprise by our nation’s adversaries.”

Scratch Pope, who covertly explored UFOs for the British government amid the 1990s, considered the DOD's remarks a "sensation disclosure."

Pope, a previous UK protection official-turned-creator, stated, "Past authority articulations were questionable and left the entryway open to the likelihood that AATIP was essentially worried about cutting edge aeronautics dangers from airplane, rockets and automatons — as cynics guaranteed.

"This new affirmation clarifies that they truly studied what the open would call 'UFOs,' " he said.

"It additionally demonstrates the British impact, in light of the fact that UAP was the term we utilized in the Ministry of Defense to make tracks in an opposite direction from the popular culture stuff that accompanied the term 'UFO.' "

John Greenewald Jr. — whose site The Black Vault files declassified government archives on UFO reports, "Bigfoot" sightings and different subjects — likewise called the Pentagon's utilization of the expression "unidentified elevated marvels" phenomenal in its candor.

"I'm stunned they said it that way, and the reason is, is they've apparently buckled down not to say that," he said.

"So I believe that is an entirely ground-breaking articulation since now we have genuine proof — official proof — all things considered, 'Indeed, AATIP dealt with UAP cases, wonders, recordings, photographs, whatever.'"

Greenewald said he trusts that the Pentagon will discharge more data about the AATIP, either by intentional divulgence or through solicitations under the government Freedom of Information Act.

"However, at any rate we're one bit nearer to reality," he said.

The presence of the AATIP was uncovered in 2017, alongside a 33-second DOD video that demonstrates an airborne item being pursued by two Navy flies off the shoreline of San Diego in 2004.

At the time, previous Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) assumed acknowledgment for masterminding $22 million in yearly subsidizing for the AATIP, telling the New York Times that it was "one of the beneficial things I did in my congressional administration."

Reid's home territory of Nevada has the top-mystery army base known as "Zone 51," since quite a while ago supposed to be the storage facility for an outsider art that slammed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.
