As someone else said, they have always been interested. The interest is just a little more public now and that is about all they are going to make public.

Navy - No release of UFO information to the general public expected

Meh, another opinion piece the "national security affairs adviser for To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science".


You can believe him when he says the picture he showed was not a US experimental aircraft:

"With a large version of the still image behind him on a screen, Mr Mellon told reporters: "Clearly this is not a US experimental aircraft, but whose is it? How did it accomplish these feats?"

But someone identified it so it's not really a "UFO" anymore:


What I don't know if he's that incompetent to know he was showing a picture of a balloon as an object that "defied the laws of physics", or if he knew perfectly well that's what it was and it's part of a disinformation campaign. I wouldn't rule out the latter because the US likes UFO reports to help mask sightings of their experimental aircraft which have been reported as UFOs.

The only thing that seems different to me now is all of the buffoonery like this coming from TTSA. I don't think there's any real change at the pentagon despite the so-called change in reporting policy...and even if that change is real the public won't see any result from that, since the Navy doesn't plan to make such reports public.

They also want to know that are the vehicles made from modern meta materials,

Or from the original exotic materials that they do not know how to build, like those that were hidden in various caches around the world.

I find the changes in nomenclature amusing.
So it's now ok to say you saw a UFO as long as you call it a UAP, they both describe the exact same thing in the exact same way but if you call it a UFO nobody will take you seriously.

Why Is The Pentagon Interested In UFOs?



Because

UFO man.

as much as it could be friendly it could be a threat if its unidentified.

To speculate why the navy is encouraging pilots and sailors to report is simple in my mind.

The US has Intel that new tech is at play by other nations or by corporations in the energy and avionics industries or simply because drones are being weaponized more and more these days by anyone excluding military which has done so for a while.

Instead of the Pentagon shoving UFO flaps under the rug --- like they used to --- they've seem to have taken a keener interest at the UFO enigma on hand.

UFO's don't necessarily mean aliens. The fact that there are aircraft in any given airspace that can't be identified, by default makes them a security risk. The Pentagon being public about this is consistent with a time where most nations can afford to develop aircraft thats off the books, to little kids flying drones where they shouldn't.

If there was anything to disclose by the government why wouldn't the DOD guy who worked on the project know about it and just tell us? And why would they cancel the ufo study if they knew aliens were actually here?

Did you know, or anyone know about the ufo project that the Pentagon recently admited too? No, you did not, so who's to say that this is one of many they have running?

Pretty obvious that they take the subject a lot more seriously than they have tried to make out

They have many secrets. But if they have some huge program for studying ufos why would they make a small one and cancel it? It's not to "fool people" into thinking they are no longer studying ufos, if they want something secret they would keep it secret. Not raise the public's interest by releasing videos and allowing a DOD guy to talk about a few cases.
That would draw way more attention.

What this likely means is the gov is interested, has very little information and can't really get any more and all the Area 51/Roswell stuff is mythology. Ufos are as elusive to the military as everyone else.

And what is the best way of keeping a project secret? By coming out about another ufo project officially to make people think that this is the only official ufo project that have been running.

With the mounting ufo evidence from navy, militery pilots, radar experts alone, it's quite obvious that this subject is taken seriously by the American government, and other governments around the world, and has been for decades now.

"the US likes UFO reports to help mask sightings of their experimental aircraft which have been reported as UFOs"

Bingo. There are lot of non-extraterrestrial reasons why the Defense Department needs to be interested in 'UFO reports'.

1. First, identify and ameliorate instrumental 'funnies' in new sensory technology to make sure we don't accidentally misinterpret [or overlook] future readings.

2. Second, determine how detection 'funnies' might be deliberately induced by hackers and real enemies, and what we can do to frustrate such efforts.

3. Third, deliberately induce anomalous targets into the range of our own new detection/tracking technology to determine realistic reliability level of existing situational awareness systems.

4. Fourth, test enemy detection systems with deliberate pokes to identify exploitatable weakneses.

5. Fifth, assess which reports from in or near potentially enemy nations are indicators of their classified military testing and operations that we need insight into.

6. Sixth, at home and elsewhere in the world, determine which detections accidentally reveal highly classified operations of our own which might be revealed to enemy nations who are also looking for such indications, so as to improve masking, misdirection, and stealthiness.

7. Seventh, in so far as observations of UFO reports from adversary nations ARE indicators of leaked observable clues to military capabilities, do nothing to provoke such regimes from curtailing their own news media coverage of the 'pseudo-UFOs' .

8. Eighth, in so far as our own domestic UFO reports may be authentic indicators of classified military activities, purposefully create camouflage and masking reports to distract, confuse, or lull foreign observers and analysts.

Well that begs the question. If these ufos are militery projects, then you have to ask why is this technology not being used for the greater good?Instead, we have sociopathic people in power thinking these technologies as weapons and how to better their enemy.

Drives me mad! We could achieve so much if we work together!

That is of course if we have technology like anti gravity already, but would not suprise me if we do.

there will be no alien battle....if there are aliens AND they were hostile, they would simply send out an atmospheric world-wide virus that would only kill humans, all the while they remain at a unknown location in space.....they don't lose anyone of their own, and none of their ships.....we wouldn't know what hit us, and those that hid in bunkers will eventually come out, and be immediately attacked by the virus. it's movie fiction and our own egos that talk about defending earth in pitched battles with alien beings, as if we would stand a chance.

That's how I think it would play out.

That is definitely not the best way to keep a project secret. You just don't tell people? Find an example of the military creating a fake program and canceling it to keep another larger program secret?
They didn't create a fake atomic bomb program?

There are probably dozens of secret programs. Do you know of them? No, because they are secret. Why would they raise attention to themselves, admit they are interested, release some ufo footage, allow a DOD guy to peak everyones interest, as part of an effort to keep a larger program secret?

Seriously that makes no sense. But also people seem to think money grows on trees. Every branch has a budget and every budget is limited and not enough. Creating a fake program just to fool people is completely unlikely just for financial reasons. The DOD paid a bunch of people 70 grand a year for several years just as a ruse? The military has a black budget that we know about but no one can get oversight on the missing trillion dollars. The DOD does not.
In the real world no one gives the go-ahead to waste millions of dollars on a 5 year fake program just to trick people?

Maybe the military has a separate ufo program and they don't share information with the DOD? But this was probably the DODs only program and ufos are elusive and hard to study and they were not getting enough information to justify the program. That is most likely the reality.
