The United States Government organizes a new group to investigate the alien threat
After years of denying that they were at all interested in UFOs/UAPs, the US government has officially established a task force to investigate them.
On Aug. 4, 2020, Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist approved the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF). The Department of the Navy, under the cognizance of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, will lead the UAPTF.
The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs. The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.
As DOD has stated previously, the safety of our personnel and the security of our operations are of paramount concern. The Department of Defense and the military departments take any incursions by unauthorized aircraft into our training ranges or designated airspace very seriously and examine each report. This includes examinations of incursions that are initially reported as UAP when the observer cannot immediately identify what he or she is observing.
In a statement provided to Popular Mechanics, the Pentagon says the Department of the Navy, “under the cognizance of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security,” will lead the UAPTF.
While the US government has maintained a position of not being interested in the UFO and alien phenomenon since the late 70s with the conclusion of the Condon Report. In recent years it has been proven that while publicly they are ignoring the subject, behind closed doors they are still very much interested.
The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) headed by Luis Elizondo officially ran from 2007 through 2012, with funding of $22 million over those years. While officially it was defunded after that, rumors abound that it continued on.
