Of 144 ufo reports documented by the U.S. Department of Defense since 2004, only one has been clarified more or less. The Americans are still in the dark about the rest. It is not even excluded that some so-called unidentified flying objects are of alien origin.
A long-awaited U.S. intelligence report on dozens of mysterious observations of UFOs shows that most of them could not be explained so far. The observations “probably lack a single explanation.” The Service currently acknowledges insufficient information “to be able to attribute documented incidents to specific statements.”
One of the conclusions is that the unknown objects are “clearly a safety issue for flights and potentially challenge US national security.” The report also lists some of the cases previously revealed in a video of air force pilots released by the Pentagon. It shows enigmatic aircraft off the US East and West Coast flying at a speed and movability that surpass well-known aviation technologies. Nor do they seem to have a clear form of propulsion.
A senior US official, who was asked if a possible explanation is alien life, said: “That has not been the goal to evaluate any kind of quest for alien life. Of the 144 reports we are dealing with, we have no clear evidence that there is a non-earthly explanation for it.”
The report says that in one case it is “air mess”, for the remaining 143 cases, the government still has to rule out whether the observations may be of extraterrestrial origin, officials say. They say they have no indication that it may be aircraft from other countries because there is no evidence that they have a major technological edge. Nor are natural atmospheric phenomena or new yet secret American aircraft an explanation.
The document was commissioned by Congress. Republican senator Marco Rubio played an important role in this. “For years, the men and women we trust to defend our country have reported encounters with unidentified aircraft of superior abilities. And for years, their concerns were often ignored and ridiculed,” Rubio said. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but its just a first step.”
