As predicted, early press mentions of the US Government’s UFO report suggest it will be a non-committal response. In short, nothing’s ruled in and nothing is ruled out.
All in all, it is a pretty weak response. Almost as disappointing as the UK Ministry of Defence’s stock response of “Not of Defence Interest“. I still remain of the opinion that most with an interest in the field will be disappointed when the final report is out.
Until the US report is published though I’d like to concentrate on the UK’s previous stance of rebuttle of enquiries regarding Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), Unidentified Submersible Objects (USOs) and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs).
Meanwhile in the UK
To truly describe a craft, and I don’t think there is any doubt that craft of unknown origins, not necessarily off-world origins, penetrating sovereign UK airspace and carrying out manoeuvres that the Royal Air Force or Police helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft cannot replicate, you would need an intimate understanding of what the target craft was, the technology it used and its origin.
Are the Ministry of Defence really telling the public they know so much about these UFOs that they can be written off as of ‘No Defence Interest’?
They trot this line out whilst revealing nothing to the general public. So who is it that makes these bland statements? If you submit an Freedom of Information request to the UK Ministry of Defence you will not get a response signed by an individual. Instead it will have some sort of bizarre secretariat name at the bottom. Why? What is it they’re hiding in their correspondence? Yet, footage from the National Police Air Service from back in 2016 is undeniable.
Back in the 1980s, I could well understand the vast majority of black triangle sightings to be those of the B2 Stealth Bomber or the F117 Stealth Fighter. They were both pretty radical designs for their day and were kept secret from the world back then. In short, a “nothing to see here” type of approach. However, their shapes are very different to the type of UFO spotted over the Bristol Channel.
Something or nothing?
Does that really look like something of “no defence interest”? The crew of the Police helicopter tracking it seemed to think it was interesting enough to burn some fuel to follow it.
So whilst all eyes are on the USA this month, the UK Government has a lot of questions to answer itself on the subject of UFOs, USOs and UAP. The real challenge for those interested in the subject is how to extract the information from the files of government departments.
