Pentagon UFO report 'doesn't rule out aliens' - although finds no evidence

A highly anticipated report detailing the U.S. intelligence community's knowledge of UFOs will reveal that officials still can not explain the movement of the mysterious objects, but they have found no evidence they are alien spacecraft, according to a report Thursday.

The report determines that the vast majority of more than 120 incidents over the past two decades did not originate from any American military or other advanced USA government technology, the officials said.

US officials will say in a highly-anticipated report that they can't rule out the possibility that Navy pilots have encountered aliens, the New York Times reports.

While the official report will not be released until the end of the month, the sources who spoke with The New York Times seem to imply the report does not offer much hard data on what the unidentified areal phenomena could be.

While UFO experts have applauded recent moves by the United States government to share more information about unknown aerial encounters reported over the last several decades, many remain sceptical that the upcoming report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and other agencies will provide a comprehensive look at the issue.

Former President Barack Obama also acknowledged on The Late Late Show with James Corden in May that the government has unexplained UFO footage.

Because of that, the officials reportedly said they could not rule out the possibility that the phenomena did not originate on our planet.

And while the government says it has found no evidence the objects are alien spacecraft, it fully admits it has no idea what the UFOs are.

Numerous more than 120 incidents examined in the report are from Navy personnel, officials said.

One senior official briefed on the intelligence said without hesitation that USA officials knew it was not American technology.

One official told the newspaper there was "worry" among the intelligence and military communities that the phenomena could be experimental technology from China, Russia or another foreign power.

A portion of the report will remain classified.

Russian Federation has been investing heavily in hypersonics, believing the technology offers the ability to evade American missile-defense technology.

Last month, former US Navy pilot Ryan Graves told CBS' 60 Minutes that sightings like this were common while he was serving. With the speeds he and other pilots observed, he said, "12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we'd expect". The office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Defense Department compiled the report.

The program began in 2007 and was largely funded at the request of Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader at the time.

And while senior officials told the Times the lack of clear findings means that while there's no evidence of alien technology behind the phenomena, it's also impossible to rule out.

The task force's mission was to "detect, analyze and catalog" sightings of unusual objects in the sky that could pose a threat to national security. "We're good at manufacturing arguments for each other", Obama said.

The report was stipulated when former US President Donald Trump signed the $2.9 trillion coronavirus relief and government funding bill into law last December.

The Pentagon previous year released videos taken by US Navy pilots showing in-flight encounters with the unusual aircraft. David Fravor, said in an interview later with The Times.
