Pentagon Secretly Investigating UFOs or Not?

By  | 

According to recent Senate committee reports, the US government’s search for unidentified flying objects (UFOs) continues. And it’s part of a program called the Unidentified Airborne Phenomenon Task Force (UAPTF), which operates under the U.S. Naval Intelligence Officer.

This agency appears to have taken on the responsibilities of another UFO hunter Pentagon group allegedly disbanded in 2012; UAPTF’s findings could be made public in the next six months, The New York Times reported on July 23.

While the results of the UAPTF studies remain confidential (at least for now), the Times reported that information provided to the Ministry of Defense by a former UFO program consultant mentions “extraterrestrial vehicles not made on this Earth”. Despite this claim, no evidence has yet been shown of the extraterrestrial technology claim, according to the Times.

What is the Purpose of Researching UFOs?

UFOs sometimes referred to as unidentified weather phenomena (THO), are objects that cannot be easily explained. The main purpose of military organizations investigating UFOs is not to find aliens, but to determine whether these mysterious objects pose a threat to national security.

Pioneering programs such as the Air Force’s Blue Book Project and the National Aeronautical Phenomenon Research Committee (NICAP) focused on UFO views in the US from the 1950s to the 1980s, while the Pentagon’s Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) was founded in 2007 and supposedly ceased operations in 2012 when its budget was cut.

But despite everything, the Pentagon’s search for UFOs did not end in 2012. According to the Times, Defense Ministry representatives recently confirmed that UFO hunting was still active in 2017 and is still under the name UAPTF to this day.

The Times, the US Senate intelligence committee covered the activities of the UAPTF in June in the 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act; This situation has made public, the agency suspected of investigating UFOs said. The draft law of the committee aims to regulate the tracking, organization, and accessibility of UFO-related information collected by the task force. According to the report of Live Science, the draft bill includes the publication of a public report “presented as unclassified” within 180 days after it enters into force.

“The Committee understands that the relevant intelligence may be sensitive; nevertheless, the committee finds that information sharing and coordination among the intelligence community is inconsistent. Wrote.
