The Office of All Domains Anomaly Resolution, which investigates unexplained activity in the sky, space and underwater in the United States, received hundreds of reports about unidentified flying objects.
The new body created by the Pentagon to investigate reported UFO sightings has so far found no evidence of extraterrestrial life, the US Department of Defense said Friday.
“I have not seen anything […] till the date suggesting that there has been an extraterrestrial visitation, an alien crash or something like that,” Ronald Moultrie, Defense Undersecretary for Intelligence and Security, was quoted as saying by Reuters.
Created in July, the All Domains Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), which investigates unexplained activity in the sky, space, and underwater in the United States, received hundreds of reports about unidentified flying objects.
AARO director Sean Kirkpatrick said the office is investigating the reports, which number to 400, and that it takes a scientific approach to the question of the existence of aliens. “As a physicist, I have to stick to the scientific methodand I will follow that data and that science wherever they go,” said Kirkpatrick, who does not rule out the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
At the same time, Kirkpatrick assured that the AARO “is structuring its analysis to be very thorough and rigorous,” adding that “will analyze everything“. The results of the AARO investigation will be set out in a report expected to be released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
The last public report from this body, published in 2021, revealed that only one of the 144 cases of the appearance of unidentified flying objects investigated had been resolved. The remaining 143 cases remain unexplained. Furthermore, Moultrie noted that any unauthorized object in or near a restricted areasuch as a military base or training camp, would be considered hostile and a threat to national security until identified.
