Pentagon opens UFO office to investigate ‘sighting mysteries’ – but everyone has same complaint

THE PENTAGON is opening a new office to investigating UFOs – but not everyone is convinced by the idea.

The crack team of UFO specialists was approved by US officials late last year.

It is designed to identify UFOs and some of them may pose a threat to national security.

The unit is also known as the Anomaly Surveillance and Resolution Office.

It will probe whether or not the strange craft that have been reportedly buzzing the US military are unknown technology from Russia and China or potentially something more alien.

Some believe that the new Pentagon UFO office will not make any changes.

Critics have warned that the government will simply conceal any major findings – and that UFO investigations have been ongoing for years anyway.

Ron James, spokesperson for Mutual UFO Network, warned that alien interference is unlikely to be discovered by the general public.

“This is a subject with a provable history of secrecy,”James spoke to NBC.

“And anything that lacks a new openness about the information is subject to more, possibly inappropriate control.”

James said, “We don’t see this as a sign that new resources will be allocated to the matter.”

“We believe considerable resources have always been dedicated to the matter at some level inside deep government and industry.”

The US Congressman Tim Burchett responded to the news with harsh criticism.

“We should never trust the Pentagon,”Knoxville, Tennessee lawmaker spoke out.

“They will never tell us the full story on the UFO issue.”

Other have applauded the legislation.

Senator Kirsten Gilbrand introduced the new measure. She believes it is important for safety and security of American citizens.

“Our national security efforts rely on aerial supremacy and these phenomena present a challenge to our dominance,”The senator spoke.

“The United States needs a coordinated effort to take control and understand whether these aerial phenomena belong to a foreign government or something else altogether.”

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence will jointly establish the office. This is a crucial marriage between the intelligence- and military communities.

UFOs have stepped from an issue that was dismissed as fringe and the realm of conspiracy theorists into a genuine national security debate over the past few years.

ARSO will investigate “the technical and operational characteristics, origins and intentions”UFOs. 

The UFO office can send out X-Files-esque teams for assistance. “rapid response”And “field investigations”UFOs. 

It will also give briefings “any efforts to capture or exploit”Assess the phenomena. “health-related effects”For those who have seen the objects.

More information on these efforts to “capture or exploit”UFOs are not mentioned in the annual Congress report. 

The office will also compile connections between UFOs and nuclear weapons – something suspected to be a key flashpoint for whatever is in the skies. 

The term “extraterrestrial”Or “alien”It is not included in the long amendment, which was submitted by Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat lawmaker. It was backed by Marco Rubio, a Republican heavyweight and potential presidential candidate. 

The office will accept the acknowledgment. “transmedium”Nature of the phenomena: objects that seem to move between space, Earth’s atmosphere, and under the sea. 

Numerous reports claim that UFOs were seen emerging from the ocean or diving into it. This has sparked speculation about the connection between the objects and oceans. 

And some of the most high profile encounters, such as the USS Nimitz incident, saw UFOs sighted by pilots near US warships.

Lue Elizondo, head of the Pentagon’s former UFO investigation unit AATIP – which was disbanded in 2017 – welcomed the move.

He spoke to The Sun Online: “This historic bill is not only good for the American people, but it is a bill that history will show to be beneficial to the world.”

He said that Mr Elizondo is currently in Washington DC to support the amendment along with Christopher Mellon (an ex-intelligence officer). 

It comes after the US’s top spy chief Avril Haines – the DNI – admitted it is a consideration for intelligence services that the mystery objects may have come from outer space.

The Pentagon’s landmark report on the objects, released this summer, is now known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). It admitted that there was something else in the sky.

ARSO will publish annual reports on the subject up to 2026, which will include both classified and unclassified sections that can be used by Congress.

It will disband the UAP Task Force, which was created to address the Pentagon report that was published in June.

ARSO will establish standardised procedures for reporting UFOs and investigating them to aid the US in understanding what they are dealing.

The UFO encounters will be centralised by the office. 

Perhaps the most important, it will “evaluate the threat that such incidents pose the United States”as well as consulting with their friends.

Gillibrand’s amended is not only supported by Rubio but also by Martin Heinrich, a Democrat senator from New York, and Roy Blunt, Republican legislators Lindsey Graham & Roy Blunt.
