UAP = Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, the term the Navy now uses to describe UFOs.
1. The Pentagon said that they stopped funding research into UFOs/UAPs in 2012:
A Pentagon spokesman did not respond to requests from The Washington Post for comment, but in December , the military confirmed the existence of a program* to investigate UFOs and said it had stopped funding the research in 2012.
But they also just said that they are investigating UFOs/UAPs. Which is it?
Navy spokesperson Joseph Gradisher: “The Navy and USAF [United States Air Force] take these reports very seriously and investigate each and every report.”
When you investigate, you spend money on equipment and salaries. What is the name of the program that oversees investigation (if no longer AATIP)? When did Congress allocate funds? It had to be after 2017 when the military said it had stopped investigating in 2012 … that’s 5 years of not investigating, right? Something doesn’t add up here.
2. The government said that these crafts do not come from non-terrestrial sources:
In November 2011, the White House released an official response to two petitions asking the U.S. government to acknowledge formally that aliens have visited Earth and to disclose any intentional withholding of government interactions with extraterrestrial beings.
According to the response, “The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race.” Also, according to the response, there is “no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.”
But they also said they don’t know where these UFOs/UAPs come from. The Navy has spent years investigating these crafts, 15 for the tic tac. They have been measured traveling over Mach 20 (20 times the speed of sound or 15,000 miles per hour), in controlled maneuvers, over periods of hours and days, without obvious forms of propulsion. From Walker’s letter:
Based on pilot accounts, encounters with these UAPs often involved complex flight patterns and advanced maneuvering, which demand extreme advances in quantum mechanics, nuclear science, electromagnetics, and thermodynamics.
The Navy has now officially ruled out all known terrestrial sources by labeling these crafts “unidentified.” If you’re saying you don’t know what something is or where it is from but you know for certain where it is not from, the onus is on you to provide evidence for that.
“The videos were never officially released to the general public by the DoD [Department of Defense] and should still be withheld,” said Pentagon Spokesperson Susan Gough to The Black Vault earlier this year. Mr. Gradisher, on behalf of the Navy, confirms the Pentagon’s position this week by adding, “The Navy has not released the videos to the general public.”
So, there is no evidence hidden from the public eye and there is also evidence hidden from the public eye. You can’t have both.
About the first one, I was inclined to think they were being investigated. When you have strike-carrier groups, billion-dollar assets, being engaged by crafts with technology that can’t be identified or explained by current aeronautical knowledge, that you can’t defend against, why would you cut funding on research? It doesn’t make sense. But they said they did.
Here is a clip of a FLIR (Forward-Looking Infrared Radar) video that Navy fighters took in 2004, during the Nimitz incident. It’s the famous tic tac. This is one of the 3 videos the Navy just said contain images of an authentic UFO/UAP. The Pentagon said they are sure it is not extraterrestrial and also that they don’t know what it is. And even though they said no evidence is being hidden from the public eye, they kept this (and the rest of the video it was clipped from along with high-resolution images) from the public eye.
