Key findings from an upcoming bombshell U.S. report on UFOs — referred to by the government as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) — were released late on Thursday evening and show that U.S. officials have zero evidence that any of the reported objects are alien spacecraft.
“The report determines that the vast majority of more than 120 incidents over the past two decades did not originate from any American military or other advanced U.S. government technology,” The New York Times reported. “That determination would appear to eliminate the possibility that Navy pilots who reported seeing unexplained aircraft might have encountered programs the government meant to keep secret.”
If the objects are not alien spacecraft and are not secret U.S. government technology, then questions arise about whether a foreign adversary has advanced technology that the U.S. does not have and is using it to penetrate U.S. airspace, swarm U.S. warships, and spy on military bases.
Those are the key “conclusive” findings from the classified intelligence report, and the unclassified version that will be released by Congress will not contain many other hard findings.
“Intelligence officials believe at least some of the aerial phenomena could be experimental technology from a rival power, most likely Russia or China,” the report said. “One senior official briefed on the intelligence said without hesitation that U.S. officials knew it was not American technology. He said there was worry among intelligence and military officials that China or Russia could be experimenting with hypersonic technology.”
Former Navy SEAL Robert J. O’Neill, who is credited with killing Osama bin Laden, weighed in on the matter last month, writing on social media: “If it’s not UFOs and is an enemy government; we are f***ed.”
“Russia has been investing heavily in hypersonics, believing the technology offers the ability to evade American missile-defense technology. China has also developed hypersonic weaponry, and included it in military parades,” the report said. “If the phenomenon were Chinese or Russian aircraft, officials said it would suggest the two powers’ hypersonic research has far outpaced American military development.”
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News earlier this year that the Biden administration was in for a bit of a shock when they viewed intelligence reports on “how quickly China has closed the gap.”
“The things that they are doing, where they’re spending money, and you can’t help but be concerned about China’s ability to challenge us, as I said, in certain places,” Ratcliffe said. “I don’t want to talk about those in detail because it poses a national security threat to acknowledge that, but there are places where China’s, frankly, doing a better job, and it’s further down the curve on some technology issues than we are, and … that’s never been the case before.”
