After analyzing 144 UFO cases sighted between 2004 and 2021, the U.S. Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines shared in a panel of specialists that for members of her team, some unexplained cases could be alien technology.
“Always there’s also the question of ‘is there something else that we simply do not understand, which might come extraterrestrially?,” Haines said when discussing such strange phenomena during the ‘Our Future in Space’ meeting, according to The Sun Nov. 11.
At the event held at the Washington National Cathedral, which also featured NASA chief Bill Nelson, Harvard expert professor Avi Loeb, and the world’s second-richest man Jeff Bezos, among others, Haines responded to moderator David Ignatius.
Ignatius summarized the 144 cases revealed in June: “80 had sensors that had made the identifications; in 18 of these instances observers, I’m quoting, ‘reported unusual UAP flight characteristics.’ You sorted these into five different bins, the last called just ‘other.”
He added, “I want to ask you to share with the audience your takeaway after the completion of that report,” Ignatius said, “and what your own view is once you look at the evidence?.”
To which Haines, the overseer of the 16 U.S. spy agencies, including the FBI and CIA, responded:
“It was a report that, really, Congress asked us to produce a report that assessed what we saw as the threat, essentially, from unidentified aerial phenomenon, and what our sort of best understanding was of the different reports that we had identified,” according to The Debrief.
She then referred to the “other” category, “The fifth one was “other.” And that basically indicated that we were pretty sure we weren’t going to be able to characterize every single one of these reports in the various categories that we’d identified because, frankly, we were not able to understand everything about it.”
She went on to express that NASA could help shed light on what the intelligence agencies could not explain.
“Otherwise, we’re gonna have to wait for Bill [Nelson’s] science work to actually reveal some of these additional possibilities,” Haines said.
And he suggested that there were extraordinary things that had not yet been revealed. “We have some phenomenal stuff that we will show you, once you get your clearance,” as a possible preview of the approach of new revelations.
While the Trump administration ordered the declassification of documents related to the UFO phenomenon, many unknowns remain.
In this context, former U.S. Navy lieutenant and ex-pilot, Ryan Graves, showed concern after telling about the strange spacecraft, UFOs, with amazing capabilities that he managed to observe.
Graves had encounters with these objects during his flights almost every day since 2019, and considers them a threat to human safety, as he warned in an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” quoted by Fox News on May 15.
“I am worried, frankly. You know, if these were tactical jets from another country that were hanging out up there, it would be a massive issue,” were some of Graves’ statements on the program to be aired today.
He added: “But because it looks slightly different, we’re not willing to actually look at the problem in the face. We’re happy to just ignore the fact that these are out there, watching us every day.”
