Aspiring alien lords are warned.
The Department of Defense on Tuesday night formally created a new office to track and organize UFO sightings throughout the territory. United States Military, recognizing that persistent cases of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) “raise potential national security concerns” that cannot be ignored.
In a memo to Pentagon leaders, Undersecretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks said the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group will coordinate all UAP-related efforts across the country. military and will serve as the Department of Defense’s primary point of contact for other federal agencies working on the issue.
The creation of the office is an important step for the Pentagon, which until just a few years ago was saying virtually nothing publicly about UFOs or its extremely secret investigation into the unexplainable. But following the release of a series of videos showing close encounters between military pilots and UFOs, Ms. Hicks and other officials are now openly discussing potential security concerns arising from UAP and the need for the Pentagon to do much more to understand. what is happening in the skies over America.
In her memo, Ms. Hicks said that UAP’s presence “represents a potential flight safety risk for aircrews and raises potential national security concerns.”
The UAP office director has yet to be named, but that person will oversee a broad portfolio related to UFO sightings.
“The principal… will address this issue by standardizing UAP incident reporting across the department; identify and reduce gaps in intelligence and operational detection capabilities; collect and analyze operational, intelligence and counterintelligence data; Recommend policy, regulatory or statutory changes, as appropriate; identify approaches to prevent or mitigate risks posed by airborne objects of interest; and other activities that the director deems necessary, “reads part of the memorandum.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence will also participate in the group, Hicks said.
The Pentagon and ODNI collaborated on a major UFO report released earlier this year. That report, released in June, found that most UFO sightings by US service members remain unexplained, but could involve “innovative technologies” that pose a profound threat to national security.
The study did not rule out visitors from very, very distant galaxies as the cause of more than 100 unexplained sightings of UAP by United States Military personal.
The Pentagon’s announcement comes as a bipartisan group of senators, including Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Republican Marco Rubio of Florida, are pushing for a pending amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act to create an “Office of Resolution and Anomaly Surveillance to coordinate United States Military and intelligence work on UFOs.
“If it is technology owned by adversaries or any other entity, we need to know,” Gillibrand told Politico last week in an interview. “Burying our heads in the sand is not an acceptable strategy or approach.”
