A leaked Pentagon picture has shown a mystery “silver cube” and underwater “aliens”.
Pentagon sources prefer the term “unidentified aerial phenomena,” or UAP, to the more commonly-used UFO.
But official US military sources occasionally acknowledge that their pilots are encountering things in the sky that don’t look or perform like any known model of aircraft.
The Pentagon’s UAP Task Force has collected the most credible reports in a dossier that is circulating in intelligence circles. “It’s gone viral” said one insider.
One pilot of an F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet claimed they saw an unidentified silver “cube-shaped” object hovering apparently motionless at an altitude of around 35,000 feet and took a photo of it using his phone.
The report of the pilot’s bizarre encounter was logged in the 2018 UAP Task Force report.
Three separate US intelligence officials told The Debrief that the still-unpublished report was circulating “widely” within the intelligence community.
One of them said that despite decades working within the intelligence community “I’ve never seen anything like this.”
The report contains a long list of possible explanations for the sightings, many of which are perfectly simple, earthbound causes.
However it’s reportedly made clear that the possibility that the UAP sightings from military aircraft could quite possibly be “alien” or “non-human” technology.
Another encounter described in the UAP Task Force report comes from another F/A-18 pilot who saw a large triangular aircraft with rounded corners – each of which featured a large round while light.
The pilot reported that he saw the object emerge from the sea somewhere off the eastern coast of the US and shoot straight upwards, in a way that no known aircraft or submarine can currently achieve, the report claims.
Defence expert Steven Zaloga, a senior analyst for the Teal Group in Virginia, said that there is no craft currently in development that can switch from submarine to our travel in that way: “I have no idea what-so-ever on objects able to cross the air/water barrier,” he wrote.
Undersea “UFOs” are an increasing area of interest. According to defence journalist Tyler Rogoway, several US Navy sonar operators have reported underwater “fast movers” that outperform the current generation of attack submarines.
An intelligence official commented: “On occasion, there are detections made of non-cavitational, extremely fast-moving objects within the ocean.”
In layman’s language – a craft travelling underwater that is far in advance of any known human technological capability.
Retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Bruce McClintock, a former adviser to President george W Bush, said that the chance of the mystery aircraft being experimental US technology was very small indeed: “It is unlikely that the U.S. government would intentionally conduct tests against its own unwitting military assets,” he told The Debrief.
He said that while it remained possible that an enemy power might deploy game-changing military technology in US waters, they would have been thoroughly tested closer to home first.
“It is not outside the realm of the plausible that an adversary would test the ability of the United States to detect some new capability,” he said.
“Although,” he added, “it would be more likely they would only do this after testing the capability within or closer to their own territory before trying to penetrate U.S. airspace,”
But for such technological advances to have been made in Russia or China without even a hint of them leaking seems unlikely in the extreme.
