When will the Pentagon reveal what it knows about UFOs in its UFO report?
UFO enthusiasts around the United States are waiting for the Pentagon to release a major report on so-called unexplained aerial phenomena (UAPs), but when will it be released?
A number of UFO encounters reported by military personnel in recent years are about to be declassified by the US Department of Defense (DoD). UFO experts and conspiracy theorists alike are hoping that the Pentagon report would shed light on a number of high-profile UFO sightings, including declassified footage of “weird craft” flying across US territory.
The report’s impending release has reignited interest in the UFO phenomena, prompting former presidents to weigh in.
Barack Obama has acknowledged the reality of UFOs, but refused to speculate on their alleged alien origin.
“We can’t describe how things move, their trajectory,” the former president stated on James Corden’s Late Late Show. They lacked a clearly discernible pattern.
“And so I believe that people are still investigating and trying to figure out what that is.”
After a six-month countdown began in late December of last year, the Pentagon is scheduled to release its report any day now.
The countdown began when President Donald Trump signed a Covid relief and government funding measure worth £1.62 trillion ($2.3 trillion).
The Department of Defense was required to declassify material acquired about UFOs under a clause of the bill relating to the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021.
The Director of National Intelligence is expected to deliver the report to the Senate Intelligence Committee by June 25, according to Nick Pope, a veteran UFO investigator with the British Ministry of Defence.
Mr Pope did say, though, that the report “may be sent earlier, but a delay is more likely.”
Mr. Pope worked for the British government in the 1990s, investigating UFO reports, and has been following the Pentagon story closely.
“I’d rather have a delay than a rushed report,” he told this website, “because we need a full study of the various US Navy UFO experiences, as well as the phenomenon in general.”
“Given the difficulties of collecting information from the notoriously fragmented US intelligence community, in a circumstance where material is likely to be highly secret and compartmentalized, this will surely take time.”
What will be contained in the UFO report?
Although few people expect the US government to come clean about UFOs, a large portion of the report is likely to do so. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
