Pentagon UFO report 'doesn't rule out aliens' - although finds no evidence

In 2007, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid secured funding for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Programme, a Pentagon programme that examined the USA military's encounters with UFOs.

The report also found the vast majority of incidents documented over the past two decades did not originate from any American military or other advanced US government technology, the Times said, citing senior administration officials briefed on the report headed to Congress this month.

The findings in the report make clear the Navy pilots did not accidentally stumble upon secret government aircraft, but it does not identify what the objects are.

The videos, along with the DoD's statement, poured fuel on the fire, prompting even more calls from officials and the public to release information on UFOs.

USA military and intelligence found no evidence that seemingly highly advanced unidentified flying objects sighted by military pilots were alien spacecraft, the report concludes, according to the New York Times and other media briefed on it. The office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Defense Department compiled the report.


While speculation about the existence of UFOs has run rampant for decades, calls to declassify intelligence on unexplained sightings gained momentum on Capitol Hill in recent years.

It will be the first into UFO sightings by any major U.S. defence agency.

She said such incidents are of concern because of safety and national security implications. "They did not have an easily explainable pattern", Obama said.

"No doubt there would be immediate arguments about like, well, we need to spend a lot more money on weapons systems to defend ourselves". And who knows what kind of arguments we get into.

The former president recently spoke on the upcoming report, saying the government has videos of objects that officials struggle to explain. In some instances, sightings have been removed from the United States government database tracking these encounters because officials were able to explain them. He, however, refused to answer whether Washington has evidence that extraterrestrial life exists.


Those who worked on the report have said because it is inconclusive, the government could not assuredly rule out alien spacecraft theories.

And though the report does not provide any evidence the crafts-which have been seen to fly at unimaginable speeds and operate in both the air and underwater-are of alien origin, the report does not rule that scenario out completely.

"If the New York Times reporting is accurate, the objects being witnessed by pilots around the world are far more advanced than any earthly technologies known to our intelligence services", he said in a tweet Friday.

The report, ordered previous year, is to be submitted to Congress by the end of June by the director of national intelligence.

Reports say the dossier will be released in the coming days or at the end of June.
