Former director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe says there have been UFO sightings “all over the world” – including movements “we don’t have the technology for” – and the US will soon release a report on the topic. Mr. Ratcliffe, who served during the Trump administration, spoke to Fox News about the upcoming information. “There are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” he said.
“Some of those have been declassified, and when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engages in actions that are difficult to explain, movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for, or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
Mr. Ratcliffe said,d “we always look for a plausible explanation” when it comes to sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena. “When we talk about sightings, the other thing I will tell you is, it’s not just a pilot or just a satellite or some intelligence collection,” Mr. Ratcliffe said.
“Usually,y we have multiple sensors that are picking up these things, and so again some of these are just unexplained phenomenon, and there are actually quite a few more that have been made public.
“Weather can cause disturbances, visual disturbances, sometimes we wonder whether or not our adversaries have technologies that are a little bit further down the road than we thought or that we realized.
“But there are instances where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things that we have seen.” Mr. Ratcliffe said a report would be issued by the Pentagon, the secretary of defense, and the director of national intelligence, reportedly by June 1. The Pentagon recently declassified three videos taken by US Navy pilots that showed UFOs.
