It is a new preliminary intelligence document that feeds different theories about aerial phenomena that surprised the skies during the last decades.
Through the Office of the National Director of Intelligence, the North American Government published a preliminary report in which it warns that Authorities have yet to find an explanation for almost all the unidentified aerial phenomena reported during nearly two decades of investigation by a Pentagon task force. This new addition probably fuels theories that the Earth was and is possibly visited by aliens.
The document consists of 143 reports compiled since 2004 that "remain unexplained," alerted from the agency led by Avril Haines, National Director of Intelligence. Twenty-one reports of unknown phenomena involving 18 episodes possibly demonstrate unknown technological capabilities for the North American country. Among them are objects that move without observable propulsion or with such rapid acceleration that it is unjustified from science and is even believed to be beyond the capabilities of Russia, China, or other nations with this type of capability.
As determined by the American investigators, there is no evidence that any of the events involve secret weapons programs carried out by the United States or technology from countries that have state-of-the-art technology. In any case, the preliminary report of the intelligence agency does not rule out this possible explanation.
The agents outlined a plan to develop a better observing program and to collect data on future unexplained phenomena linked, for example, to potential sightings of unidentified flying objects or UFOs.
According to The New York Times, the lack of a specific conclusion on these episodes "raised questions about the seriousness with which the U.S. government has taken these reports and whether enough scientific experience has been gathered to evaluate them in depth.".
Among the unexplained high-impact incidents are three videos of aerial phenomena documented by the United States Navy and witnessed by several of its best pilots in recent years.
Former officials involved in the different evolutions of the Pentagon would have warned that the Government would initially handle a requirement of Congress to present an unclassified report about what is known about UFOs. To do this, they clarified, they will update the parliamentarians within 90 days and periodically join forces to develop an improved information collection strategy and present a "technical roadmap" - so-called by intelligence officials - to be able to better observe these types of phenomena, according to what the organization said to the press this Friday.
Scientific experts and enthusiastic fans alike have advanced explanations ranging from mundane to otherworldly. The report did little to corroborate or rule out conspiracy theories.
In presenting the preliminary report, government officials were reluctant to acknowledge the potential that the phenomena could be alien spacecraft, signifying how unlikely they consider this possible explanation.
There was no affirmative evidence that the unexplained phenomena are alien spacecraft in the report. Because the Government has not offered any explanation for many of the episodes, the new report is sure to fuel the enthusiasm of those who believe they could be.
There is, however, some discomfort on the part of the Pentagon and intelligence agencies to use the term UFO, and they prefer to speak of UAP in English, which translates as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. This is a rebranding to reduce the interest and enthusiasm of those who follow the subject closely and fans who subscribe to the theory of alien life.
The document talks about five categories of possible explanations for the phenomena: A secret technology developed by an adversary power like Russia and China, U.S. classified advanced technology, a natural phenomenon, some kind of disorder in the air like wandering weather balloons, and a "catchall" or atrapalotodo, another possible category. That final group could include alien technology.
It is also known that the Pentagon hopes to look at historical data collected by radar to find other similar incidents, slipped a senior U.S. government official.
The authorities specified that they observed 144 unexplained incidents and were able to recategorize one as an example of "disorder in the air." Failure to advance on any of the others reflects a lack of data and a lack of scientific brainpower to examine the problem.
Since the late 1960s, most scientists and academics have turned away from UFO studies. Unfortunately, his reluctance has hampered the Government's ability to end conspiracy theories about aliens.
