A preview of the Pentagon UAP Task Force report emerges
Last night the New York Times released a story detailing some of the contents of the upcoming Pentagon UAP Task Force report to the Senate which is due by June 25. While they don’t claim to have the full report, they spoke to a couple of anonymous government sources who have reportedly read it. From the sound of things, if anyone was expecting the government to roll out some corpses of aliens or start offering free tours of a crashed UFO, they’re in for a disappointment. But the heart of the summary is still more than I was expecting. The bottom line seems to be that the Pentagon is admitting that UFOs are real, they don’t know what they are, and they’re not some secret American military program. As is usually the case with these MSM stories, however, the way our media outlets choose their words and the tone they take is frequently more interesting than the details they provide. (Reuters)
Unlike in years past, pretty much every major news outlet was all over this story as soon as it broke. But they all seemed to be doing backflips to avoid using “the E word,” as in “extraterrestrials.” The original title of the Gray Lady’s piece when it first went up was, “Government Finds No Evidence that Aerial Sightings Were Alien Spacecraft.” While that’s technically true, it’s really not the whole story. The Times later changed the title to read, “U.S. Finds No Evidence of Alien Technology in Flying Objects, But Can’t Rule it Out Either.” That’s a far more accurate headline, and I salute the editors for making the correction.
The Associated Press took an entirely different route, using a snippet of a quote from Marco Rubio. Their headline was, ‘There is stuff’: Enduring mysteries trail US report on UFOs.
And yet, as the corrected Times headline indicates, while they can’t say that these things are extraterrestrial in nature, they also can’t say that they aren’t. That’s pretty much what the “unidentified” in “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” means, right? But as Lue Elizondo pointed out during an interview on CNN last night, the report also is supposedly quite clear in saying that these objects are not part of any secret Pentagon or civilian tech program. Their Current Best Assessment will also reportedly indicate that it’s “highly unlikely” these objects are part of any current adversarial military inventory such as those of the Russians or the Chinese.
Meanwhile, in an indication that the United States isn’t the only country dealing with all of these mysterious incursions, a separate report from the Debrief reveals that China has its own UAP Task Force. So I guess everyone is getting in on the act.
That’s a pretty big step for the Chinese to take in such a public way. They’re not only seeing these things flying around but they are being “overwhelmed” with reports. After eighty years or more of no governments wanting to utter a peep in public about this sort of thing in a serious fashion, it’s as if the dam has suddenly collapsed and everyone is talking. But where do we go from here?
