Here’s a link to the unclassified side of the promised Pentagon report on UAP. You can read it for yourself. If it feels like the government is holding out on us, that’s because they are.
The report doesn’t say much. If this is what Disclosure looks like, you might want your money back. It’s titled a “Preliminary Assessment.” It was put together by The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) which studied military and intelligence reports on UAP encounters that occurred between 2004 and 2021.
The unclassified report concedes that the technology is not secret US stuff, and it’s probably not a foreign power either. Some of it demonstrates abilities that surpass our current level of technology. “Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.” Since the UAP often appear on radar and other sensors, the report posits that they represent solid objects and not some sort of insubstantial thing.
The report doesn’t go into detail. And it steers away from making any solid conclusions. It amounts to, primarily, a set of recommendations for future investigation. It creates five categories of possible explanation for UAP: a secret technology developed by an adversarial power like Russia and China, classified cutting-edge American technology, a naturally occurring phenomenon, airborne clutter such as errant weather balloons and a catchall “other” category. Smart money is going on “other.”

The classified section probably would be a little more interesting, but essentially, this is just admitting, “Yes we have a problem with UAP. No, we don’t know what they are. No, they aren’t ours. Probably not foreign adversarial either.”
Whatever the case, this report is only a beginning. It’s nowhere near the complete transparent Disclosure it’s going to take to get any further in the subject. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but it is just a first step,” Senator Marc Rubio said.
Here’s a tepid analysis piece from the New York Times titled “U.S. Has No Explanation for Unidentified Objects and Stops Short of Ruling Out Aliens.” According to the Times, the report is an interim report, with a follow up scheduled 90 days out to outline a plan for further study.
The Times runs the numbers:
A total of 143 reports gathered since 2004 remain unexplained, the document released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said. Of those, 21 reports of unknown phenomena, involving 18 episodes, possibly demonstrate technological capabilities that are unknown to the United States: objects moving without observable propulsion or with rapid acceleration that is believed to be beyond the capabilities of Russia, China or other terrestrial nations.New York Times
Not everyone is convinced that the unidentified objects are so mysterious. The inconclusive document from the Pentagon doesn’t rule out the possibility of Chinese or Russian technology. The Drive’s War Zone continues to insist that the UAP are “Adversary Drones Spying on the US and Pentagon acts like they’re UFOs.” That premise fails to account for the same phenomena appearing in our skies since 1947. By focusing only on reports garnered since 2004, the Pentagon avoids dealing with the historical continuity.
An analysis op-ed piece in the Washington Examiner points out that, despite the paucity of details and the reticence of the report, it nevertheless admits that “the most capable intelligence apparatus of the most powerful nation on Earth says that some UFOs are likely to be truly unexplained vehicles.” An NBC News headline puts the matter succinctly: “UFO Report: Government can’t explain 143 of 144 mysterious flying objects, blames limited data.“
I would really like to see the 144 incident reports that the UAPTF looked at. If there’s nothing to see here, show us what you’ve got.
Read the report here for yourself and tell us what you think. There’s going to be a lot more discussion and analysis in the days ahead. I guess you could say, “It’s happening.” A … little … bit …. at … a … time.
