New Pentagon Report Downplays Popular UFO Theories About U.S. Government

A recent report from the Pentagon states that there is no proof of the U.S. government or private companies reverse-engineering extraterrestrial technology.

Additionally, there are no verified sightings of UFOs with alien origins, which contradicts claims made by a prominent whistleblower without evidence.

The Pentagon’s recently formed All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) shared its findings on Friday in the initial volume of the Historical Record Report, meeting Congress’s mandate to examine the history of unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP).

The AARO thoroughly examined U.S. government investigations and reports on UAPs dating back to 1945, reviewing both classified and unclassified documents and conducting interviews with 30 individuals.

The report from the office stated that there is no evidence of hidden UAP reverse-engineering programs, dismissing any claims as either false, misidentified, or connected to a discontinued program.

The AARO discredited various claims of UAP sightings, such as a former military officer touching an extraterrestrial craft that was actually an F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter jet, an individual overhearing Pentagon officials discussing aliens at a test site, and a sample from a private organization that was not off-world technology.

However, the AARO did acknowledge that the Department of Homeland Security received a proposal for a special program called Kona Blue by individuals who wanted to investigate if the U.S. was hiding off-world technology, but the program was never approved.

Last year, David Grusch, a former military intelligence officer, made claims about the U.S. withholding information on UAPs and recovering nonhuman craft with nonhuman biological materials.

Grusch, a previous member of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, has given testimony before Congress but has not provided evidence to support his assertions.

The AARO report stated that a persistent group of individuals who are convinced that the U.S. is concealing extraterrestrial craft — including some who were part of the unsuccessful Kona Blue project — are behind the ongoing claims that Washington is keeping secrets.
