Here’s an update to the discussion about UAPs that I was posting about. It’s an article just published in the New York Times.
No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon’s U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public, New York Times, 23 July 2020
A group of former government officials and scientists with security clearances who, without presenting physical proof, say they are convinced that objects of undetermined origin have crashed on earth with materials retrieved for study.
For more than a decade, the Pentagon program has been conducting classified briefings for congressional committees, aerospace company executives and other government officials, according to interviews with program participants and unclassified briefing documents.
“After looking into this, I came to the conclusion that there were reports — some were substantive, some not so substantive — that there were actual materials that the government and the private sector had in their possession,” Mr. Reid said in an interview.
Eric W. Davis, an astrophysicist who worked as a subcontractor and then a consultant for the Pentagon U.F.O. program since 2007, said that, in some cases, examination of the materials had so far failed to determine their source and led him to conclude, “We couldn’t make it ourselves. … [Davis] gave a classified briefing to a Defense Department agency as recently as March about retrievals from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.”
Either way, Mr. Reid said, more should be made public to clarify what is known and what is not. “It is extremely important that information about the discovery of physical materials or retrieved craft come out,” he said.
How can they say this? In November 2011 the government said:
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. … [There is] no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.
The tic-tac sighting that Commander Fravor describes in the video below occurred in 2004, 7 years prior to the government’s statement above. So, the government has no craft, no evidence of craft, no information to even suggest there is craft. Nothing is being hidden. Without evidence, this is a conspiracy theory, right? Why are respected scientists, members of Congress and the military, and the New York Times, a typically above-the-fray news outlet, continuing to push a conspiracy theory?
