There has been much anticipation over the Pentagon’s report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena ever since the Trump administration made public the intention to release it. This report was mandated by Congress s it was tucked into the $2.3 trillion omnibus spending and coronavirus-relief package passed by Congress in December. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was influential in commissioning the report, pushing the Senate Intelligence Committee to pass legislation requiring the Pentagon and intelligence community to provide a public analysis of the encounters.
The unclassified nine-page report, released to Congress and the public, encompasses 144 observations – mostly from U.S. Navy personnel – of what the government officially calls “unidentified aerial phenomenon,” or UAP, dating back to 2004. The report represents the most direct and substantive U.S. government account of what officials call unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) ever made public. The contents of the report come from a task force and are based on a review of 144 UAP reports involving observations made by military aviators between 2004 and 2021, with a heavy focus on the last 24 months of reporting.
“The task force also considered but opted not to focus on “a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting,” since it “lacked sufficient specificity.” After review and investigation of the 144 incidences the Taskforce could only definitely identify one UAP as a deflated balloon, the rest remain unidentified
In a total of 18 events, witnesses “reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics” — potentially demonstrating advanced, as-of-yet unknown technological capabilities. Per the report, that unusual behavior included UAP/EFOs which “appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable means of propulsion.” The report also notes that “In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.”
In 11 instances, U.S. aviators reported dangerous “near misses” with UAP.
The study documented 11 UAP near-misses reported by pilots and a small number of cases in which military aircraft “processed radiofrequency energy associated with UAP sightings.” Most reports also described objects that interrupted training or other U.S. military exercises, it stated.
The report falls short of claiming knowledge that the UAP’s in question are aliens.
This is what the report does conclude:
- There is currently no evidence that any of the objects are related to a secret U.S. weapons program or were developed by foreign adversaries.
- Most of the UAP probably were physical objects, since most were detected in multiple ways, including via “radar, infrared, electro-optical, weapon seekers, and visual observation.” In addition, there are probably multiple types of UAP.
- Objects exhibiting unusual flight characteristics (like the ones which appeared to demonstrate advanced technological capabilities) could also “be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception” and “require additional rigorous analysis.”
- There is a threat-the report states that UAP “clearly pose” a risk to flight safety in the increasingly crowded skies, and “may pose a challenge” to national security, particularly if the UAP were developed by foreign adversaries and indicate “a potential adversary has developed either a breakthrough or disruptive technology.” UAP clearly poses a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security,” the report stated, adding that the phenomena “probably lack a single explanation.”
- The clustering of sightings near U.S. military bases may just be the result of several kinds of collection bias.
- The U.S. needs to collect and analyze more information, consolidate reporting, develop a more efficient way of screening and processing the reports.
The pentagon’s report does not offer much in the way of explanation for the objects but does posit, rather contradictory to conclusions, – five categories of possible explanations:
- Unknown Technology developed by foreign adversaries (on Earth), like Russia, China, or other government or non-government entities.
- Unknown U.S.-developed technology, i.e. classified technology developed by the U.S. or its industry partners.
- Natural atmospheric phenomena, including “ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.”
- Airborne clutter, including birds, balloons, drones, or airborne debris.
- Other, several possible types of events for encounters where there isn’t enough information to determine categorization (which could include UAP of extraterrestrial origin).
Catch that? Buried into a section of possible explanations labeled ‘Other.” The media headlines lead with no Alien evidence mentioned despite it being right there in the list of possible explanations.
Analysts have yet to rule out an extraterrestrial origin, senior U.S. officials told reporters, speaking on condition of anonymity. The report’s language avoided explicit mentions of such possibilities. Asked about potential alien explanations, one of the officials said: “That’s not the purpose of the task force, to evaluate any sort of search for extraterrestrial life. … That’s not what we were charged with doing.”
So it would seem we are left feeling just like the Alice and Wonderland expression states:
“Curiouser and curiouser.”
