Do aliens exist?
A highly anticipated government report does little to answer that question but found no evidence of extraterrestrial activity. However, it also does little to rule it out altogether.
The report also does not rule out the possibility that the flying objects seen by U.S. military planes are advanced aircraft developed by other nations. The report is due to Congress at the end of the month but it is not confirmed if it will be released to the public, according to a spokesperson for the Office of Director of National Intelligence.
Three different videos leaked over the years, one in July 2019 showing an unidentified object flying over the water near San Diego.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the news but declined to go into detail about the report.
“It’s always a little wacky on Fridays,” she said. “I will say that we take reports of incursions into our airspace by any aircraft — identified or unidentified — very seriously and investigate each one.”
Last year, the Pentagon announced a task force to investigate the claims and the Navy put a protocol in place for its pilots to report any possible sightings. Lawmakers have called for more action in recent years, wanting answers to what so many are seeing in the sky.
“There’s a stigma on Capitol Hill,” Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio told “60 Minutes” in May. “I mean, some of my colleagues are very interested in this topic and some kind of, you know, giggle when you bring it up. But I don’t think we can allow the stigma to keep us from having an answer to a very fundamental question.”
The report says the majority of more than 120 incidents over the past two decades did not come from the American military or other advanced U.S. government technology.
