Pentagon Forms New Group to Investigate UFOs

The United States Department of Defense is establishing a new group to investigate UFO sightings in restricted airspace.

The group’s formation follows a report released by the Officer of the Director of National Intelligence in conjunction with the U.S. Navy aimed at investigating more than 140 sightings of UFOs in the limited U.S. military air force since 2004.

According to Reutersthe new group will be called the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group, and will be overseen by the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, the Joint Staff, and officers of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Kathleen Hicks, the deputy secretary of defense, released a statement explaining that the existence of UFOs and unidentified aerial phenomenon in restricted military airspace is potentially dangerous to crew members and a threat to US national security.

While usually associated with aliens, UFOs are simply unidentified flying objects by definition. As drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles that can fly continue to proliferate in arsenals around the world, there could be any number of terrestrial UFOs penetrating US airspace.

Videos of the observed objects appear to show shocking levels of technological advancement, such as the ability to move without discernible propulsion, or accelerate faster than any other known aircraft. Some skeptics have argued that the seemingly inexplicable movements were in fact due to tricks of the light or camera angles.

The US government has often used UFO/UAP stories to discredit, distract and cover up its own actions. Most famously, the CIA confessed in 1997 that many reported UFO sightings in the 1950s and 1960s were actually civilians seeing U-2 and SR-71 spy planes at high altitudes. Rather than explaining the top-secret spy plane program, the CIA and US Air Force have been spreading false cover-ups attributing the sightings to temperature inversions and ice crystals, deliberately misleading the public.

Unfortunately, the report from the agency that spawned the new group provided few explanations for the seemingly new phenomena that have energized UFO viewers.

The new observation group will replace the U.S. Navy’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, which was established to detect, identify and categorize objects, as well as assess and mitigate any threats they pose.

The group will primarily monitor “special use” airspace, including ongoing military operations, fire wardens and other areas restricted for national security use.
