Former director of nationwide intelligence John Ratcliffe says there have been UFO sightings “all over the world” – together with actions “we don’t have the technology for” – and the US will quickly launch a report on the subject.
Mr Ratcliffe, who served throughout the Trump administration, spoke to Fox Information concerning the upcoming report.
“There are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” he mentioned.
“Some of those have been declassified, and when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain, movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for, or travelling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
Mr Ratcliffe mentioned “we always look for a plausible explanation” relating to sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena.
“When we talk about sightings, the other thing I will tell you is, it’s not just a pilot or just a satellite or some intelligence collection,” Mr Ratcliffe mentioned.
“Often we have now a number of sensors which might be choosing up this stuff, and so once more a few of these are simply unexplained phenomenon and there’s really fairly a number of greater than have been made public.
“Climate may cause disturbances, visible disturbances, generally we ponder whether or not our adversaries have applied sciences which might be just a little bit additional down the street than we thought or that we realised.
“But there are instances where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things that we have seen.”
Mr Ratcliffe mentioned a report can be issued by the Pentagon, the secretary of defence and the director of nationwide intelligence, reportedly by June 1.
The Pentagon just lately declassified three movies taken by US Navy pilots that confirmed UFOs.
