There has been growing suspicion about unidentified flying objects.
The government has remained tight-lipped on the subject for decades.
But the Pentagon just made one jaw-dropping admission about UFOs.
Last year, an internet event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” spread on Facebook.
People across social media joked about going to the event to “see them aliens” at the secretive military base.
Roughly 150 people showed up to the event and nobody attempted to breach the entrance, but the event coincided with a renewed interest in the idea of extraterrestrial life.
Since “Storm Area 51,” the enthusiasm hasn’t died down.
And now a consultant for the Pentagon’s UFO program briefed U.S. senators about “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.”
Eric W. Davis, an astrophysicist and consultant for the Pentagon, admitted to the New York Times that he told senators about recovered material from alleged UFOs that “we couldn’t make it ourselves.”
The idea of “off-world vehicles not made on this earth” is eye-opening and somewhat alarming.
Nobody is entirely sure what that means.
One theory is that it’s proof of extraterrestrial life.
Another theory is that China or another geopolitical rival has made a technological leap unfamiliar to American scientists.
Both theories are jarring, and are seemingly being investigated.
China recently conducted a military parade where they displaced new weaponry as a potential shot across the bow of anyone who wants to challenge their military might.
China has also been brokering in secrets and lies; a current example of this is their blatant lies told to the World Health Organization about the Wuhan virus.
Senator Marco Rubio, chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, says he’s primarily concerned about UFOs reportedly flying over military bases.
That could lend credence to the theory that a foreign government is using new tech to spy on American military units.
Rubio said, “Maybe there is a completely, sort of, boring explanation for it. But we need to find out.”
However, the UFO theory is bolstered by renewed interest in the story of Bob Lazar, a man who claims to have been hired by the U.S. military in the 1980s to reverse-engineer UFO technology.
He was widely denounced as a hoaxster, but Lazar is currently getting a second look in light of the Pentagon’s admission.
There are still too many unanswered questions, but it appears the government is finally acknowledging that there are unexplained events, and they seem to be willing to offer at least a modicum of transparency.
That would be a step in the right direction from the secrecy and denial that usually comes from the government.
Whatever the truth may be, the American people are interested to hear it.
