Pentagon has received


A new Pentagon office set up to track reports of unidentified flying objects has received “several hundred” new reports but has so far seen no evidence of extraterrestrial life, the agency’s leadership told reporters on Friday.

“We have not seen anything that would lead us to believe that any of the objects we have seen are of extraterrestrial origin,” said Ronald Moultrie, deputy secretary of defense for intelligence.

“I have not seen anything … to suggest that there has been an extraterrestrial visitation or an alien accident,” Moultrie added. Neither Moultrie nor Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, head of the recently reorganized All Domains Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), said how many of the roughly 400 cases under investigation have been identified. They said the information would be contained in a report to be released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The latest public accounting dates back to 2021, when a Pentagon official said one of the 144 cases had been resolved. Asked if any of the cases investigated to date indicate a threat to national security, Kirkpatrick said “yes,” but Moultrie chimed in to add that any unauthorized object in or near a restricted area (a military base, a training area, etc.) would be assumed hostile until identified.

The Pentagon investigation covers incidents reported as far back as 1996, but the language in the new defense spending bill would extend 75 years into the past.

The name has been changed from Unidentified Aerial Phenomena to All Domains Anomaly to account for the fact that some of the investigations deal with unexplained sightings underwater, on the surface, and in space, although most of the reports still deal with aerial phenomena.

The AARO was created in July and is responsible for not only tracking unidentified objects in the sky, but also underwater or in space, or potentially an object that has the ability to move from one domain to another.

The office was established after more than a year of attention to unidentified flying objects that military pilots have observed but have sometimes been reluctant to report for fear of stigma.

In June 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence reported that between 2004 and 2021 there were 144 such encounters, 80 of which were captured on multiple sensors.

Since then, “we’ve had a lot more reports,” said Bureau of Anomalies Director Sean Kirkpatrick.
