U.S. Government About to Admit the Existence of Extraterrestrials?

Written by Mike Rickard II

Could UFOologists and the people who laugh at them finally settle on the long debate whether the Earth has been and/or is being visited by extraterrestrials? That might be the case as the United States government prepares to release a report on alien life. NBC News reported last week that:

U.S. intelligence agencies are expected to deliver a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” to Congress next month, sparking renewed interest and speculation into how the government has handled sightings of mysterious flying objects — and if there’s any worldly explanation for them.

The unclassified report, compiled by the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense, aims to make public what the Pentagon knows about unidentified flying objects and data analyzed from such encounters.

Interest in unidentified flying objects and extraterrestrial life have fascinated humanity since the dawn of civilization (and likely before that). However, the latter half of the 20th century saw an explosion of interest as more UFO sightings coupled with improved optical instruments such as cameras, video cameras, and camera phones made it easier to capture. Along the way, UFOs and the idea that the Earth’s governments are hiding their existence have become engrained in our culture.

The last two decades have featured another surge in interest as online video-sharing sites such as YouTube have made it easy for people to upload alleged sightings of UFOs to the general public. The news media also seems to have taken a more open-minded attitude towards reporting alleged sightings. Whether this is due to growing evidence of UFOs or the government “suggesting” they air stories with UFOs is a matter of debate.

NBC News noted:

The report that will be delivered to Congress in June is the result of a provision in the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief and appropriations bill that President Donald Trump signed last year. The stipulation called for a “detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence” from the Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force and the FBI.

The report may or may not provide answers, but considering the federal government’s reluctance to disclose information such as sealed files ranging from the FBI’s surveillance of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to the personal papers of Chief Justice Earl Warren (famous or infamous due to his role in the Warren Commission that investigated President Kennedy’s assassination). Knowing what we know about past cover-ups and fabrications such as the Gulf of Tonkin Incident and Operation Northwoods, UFO skeptics aren’t confident the report will provide any substantial information to prove or disprove the existence of extraterrestrials.

Equally skeptical will be UFOlogists who likely will question the accuracy and reliability of the government’s report. After all, a running theme in the search for the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrials is that of the world’s governments have engaged in a massive cover-up.
