US Navy drafting new discipline for stating UFOs
The U.S. Navy is drafting new discipline for pilots and other employees to news encounters with ‘unidentified aircraft.’
The Pentagon has finally spoken a difference it always avoided when deliberating a probable existence of UFOs — “unidentified aerial phenomena” — and admits that it still investigates reports of them.
In a matter supposing exclusively to The Post, a Department of Defense orator pronounced a tip supervision beginning called a Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program “did pursue examine and review into unclear aerial phenomena.”
And while a DOD says it close down a AATIP in 2012, orator Christopher Sherwood concurred that a dialect still investigates claimed sightings of visitor spacecraft.
“The Department of Defense is always endangered about progressing certain marker of all aircraft in a handling environment, as good as identifying any unfamiliar capability that might be a hazard to a homeland,” Sherwood said.
“The dialect will continue to investigate, by normal procedures, reports of unclear aircraft encountered by US troops aviators in sequence to safeguard invulnerability of a homeland and insurance opposite vital warn by a nation’s adversaries.”

Nick Pope, who personally investigated UFOs for a British supervision during a 1990s, called a DOD’s comments a “bombshell revelation.”
Pope, a former UK invulnerability official-turned-author, said, “Previous central statements were obscure and left a doorway open to a probability that AATIP was simply endangered with next-generation aviation threats from aircraft, missiles and drones — as skeptics claimed.
“This new acknowledgment creates it transparent that they unequivocally did investigate what a open would call ‘UFOs,’ ” he said.
“It also shows a British influence, since UAP was a tenure we used in a Ministry of Defence to get divided from a cocktail enlightenment container that came with a tenure ‘UFO.’ ”
John Greenewald Jr. — whose website The Black Vault repository declassified supervision papers on UFO reports, “Bigfoot” sightings and other subjects — also called a Pentagon’s use of a tenure “unidentified aerial phenomena” rare in a frankness.
“I’m repelled they pronounced it that way, and a reason is, is they’ve clearly worked really tough not to contend that,” he said.
“So we consider that’s a flattering absolute matter since now we have tangible justification — central justification — that said, ‘Yes, AATIP did understanding with UAP cases, phenomena, videos, photos, whatever.’”
Greenewald pronounced he hopes that a Pentagon will recover some-more information about a AATIP, possibly by intentional avowal or by requests underneath a sovereign Freedom of Information Act.
“But during slightest we’re one step closer to a truth,” he said.
The existence of a AATIP was suggested in 2017, along with a 33-second DOD video that shows an airborne intent being chased by dual Navy jets off a seashore of San Diego in 2004.
At a time, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) took credit for arranging $22 million in annual appropriation for a AATIP, telling a New York Times that it was “one of a good things we did in my congressional service.”
Reid’s home state of Nevada hosts a top-secret troops designation famous as “Area 51,” prolonged rumored to be a warehouse for an visitor qualification that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.
Reid, by a spokeswoman, declined to comment.
