The Pentagon Admits To UFO Investigations

UFO News

The Pentagon has finally admitted something we had all highly suspected for some time. The U.S government actively investigates UFO sightings. This may indicate that unidentified flying objects are a threat to National Security.

In an exclusive article on the New York Post website, a spokesman from the U.S Department of Defense (DOD) stated that the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) did actively pursue the investigation of UFO’s or “unidentified aerial phenomena.” The U.S Congress had intentions to investigate the AATIP UFO sightings. And more recently we published an article about the documented Tic-Tac UFO encounter.

While the U.S government maintains the stance that the AATIP was officially shut down in 2012, spokesman Christopher Sherwood claims the department still actively investigates alleged alien UFO sightings.

Sherwood said that the DOD always has concerns about positively identifying all aircraft. This also includes any foreign mechanism that has the ability to cause harm to U.S citizens.

Mr. Sherwood continued to say that the investigation of UFO’s is in order to ensure the protection of the United States of America. Any reports by U.S military pilots of unidentified aerial phenomena will be investigated thoroughly with procedures already in place.

Could this be the step forward towards the truth that so many of us seek? It certainly looks that way. We now have confirmation that unidentified flying objects are true phenomena. However, they still remain unknown. Hopefully, in the coming years, we can understand what they are.

AATIP is not the first government UFO case study.

Nick Pope, a former employee of the British government, says the DOD’s comments are a “bombshell revolution.”

During the 1990’s Nick worked on a secret British program that investigated UFO sightings. The former UK defense official has plenty of experience in this area. He is enthused with these recent comments. Mr. Pope said that previous discussions about AATIP left so many unanswered questions. Were they just “concerned with next-generation aviation threats from aircraft, missiles, and drones?

Now, however, we have 100% confirmation that the U.S actively investigated sightings of what people call UFOs.

The term unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) was used by the British to classify unknown flying object sightings. On occasions, they have been called anomalous aerial vehicles (AAV).

These two terms are attempts by governments to move away from the common UFO term. This is because over the years the abbreviation has become tainted with crackpots and fake UFO news stories.

Either way, we have evidence that AATIP investigated unknown flying objects in the sky. And, that to this day, the U.S government still keeps a close eye on sightings of such objects.

Many people are hoping that the Pentagon will release more evidence of UAPs. This can be done by voluntary disclosure from the AATIP, or by Freedom of Information Act requests. Either way, we are moving in the right direction.


The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was a U.S Government run program aimed to investigated reports of UFO sightings. It officially formed in 2007 and dissolved in 2012. The program became public knowledge when the New York Post ran a story about the program’s details. AATIP had a $22 million year funding for its 5-year duration.

UFO videos also appeared online when the existence of this top-secret program came about. One video, which you can see below, shows a chase between a Navy fighter jet and a UFO.

This was filmed off the coast of San Diego in 2004. Experts still have no explanation for the object in the video.

What Are UFOs?

We still do not have an answer to this question. The common answer is in relation to aliens. That UFOs are the vehicles of extraterrestrial visitors. This certainly explains a lot about the mystery behind them.

However, others believe UFOs are some kind of time machines. Perhaps the beings inside are actually humans from the future.

Alternatively, some people credit these extraordinary vehicles to the work of top-secret government-funded programs.
