(Natural News) The Department of Defense is slated to release a report on unidentified flying objects (UFO) that “defy explanation,” according to John Ratcliffe, ex-Director of Intelligence under former President Donald Trump.
In an interview with Fox News on March 19, Ratcliffe hinted at what the Pentagon may disclose as part of an order contained in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021. This act was included in the $2.3 trillion COVID relief bill that Trump signed into law last December.
Ratcliffe revealed that military pilots and satellites detected many UFOs that “engage in actions that are difficult to explain.” He explained that such objects made movements that were impossible with current technology, such as traveling faster than sound without creating a sonic boom.
He notes that analysts always try to explain an unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP) – the Pentagon’s official term for a UFO – by checking first if it is a weather anomaly or a piece of technology developed by America’s enemies. But there are many sightings that defy explanation, which he states the Pentagon may finally disclose to the public on June 1.
“I think that that information is being gathered and will be put out in a way that the American people see,” Ratcliffe said.
When asked where UAPs were seen, he told host Maria Bartiromo that sightings occurred all over the world, many of which remain classified. He went on to state that it would be “healthy” to get much of the information on UAPs out.
In fact, Ratcliffe bared that he wanted to make a report on UAPs before he left office in January. But he was not able to convert the report into a declassified format.
What the bill says the UFO report should contain
A committee comment included in the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 requires the Pentagon, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other concerned agencies to produce a report on UAPs within 180 days of the legislation’s enactment on Dec. 27.
According to the bill, the report should include a detailed analysis of UAP data collected by pilots, sensors and satellites. The report should also contain a detailed analysis of FBI data, which was taken during investigations of UAPs that intruded into U.S. airspace. Additionally, it should have an assessment of whether these activities could be attributed to U.S. enemies and whether they posed a threat to national security.
Christopher Mellon, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence under former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, said the bill appeared to be calling for an unclassified, all-source report.
“Consequently, it’s now fair to say that the request for an unclassified report on the UAP phenomenon enjoys the support of both parties in both Houses of Congress,” he told the Debrief in January.
“Assuming the Executive Branch honors this important request, the nation will at long last have an objective basis for assessing the validity of the issue and its national security implications. This is an extraordinary and long overdue opportunity,” he added. (Related: Are the recent UFO disclosures setting us up for a mass deception of epic proportions?)
Nick Pope, who investigated UFOs for the U.K.’s Ministry of Defence, also welcomed the order and said that it was proof of how seriously UAPs are being taken in the intelligence community. But he reminded that it remains to be seen whether the report would contain highly classified information.
“Questions remain about what the report will say and how much can ever be made public, given the highly classified nature of some of the material, but this is a step in the right direction,” he said.
News outlet Military noted that the UFO report would contain a classified supplement.
