Inside Notes: Back Into the Light
It’s very enlightening when you open your mind to the vastness of the universe and all it encompasses. Finishing this UFO subject up, just understand I’m not talking about little green men running around abducting people. No, I’m talking about stuff that has been flying around the skies since recorded history, which is a very interesting topic. Over recent years, there have been tens of thousands of objects in our skies, reported by ordinary people, that can’t be identified. With the invention of cameras and video we are now able to catch more of it in real-time, instead of reading about it in old myths and tales. In a 2019 Gallup poll, 60% of Americans believe aerial sightings can be explained by human activity or natural phenomena. A full 33% of people in the U.S. believe the UFO phenomenon are others from our vast universe stopping in for a visit, or have been here for a very long, long time.
Continuing from last month, there is a new investigation into the UFO phenomenon by our federal government – no, it didn’t stop. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force was launched this year by U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary David Norquist, boosting an effort by the Office of Naval Intelligence into, what is now called, Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), a continuation of the AATIP program.
The Defense Department stated that it hopes to “improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAP’s.” The mission of this new taskforce is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security. “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,” the department stated.
Nick Pope, a former employee and UFO investigator for Britain’s Ministry of Defense said the British government did the same thing. “The UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) was a term we popularized at the UK Ministry of Defense in the nineties, as part of a ‘rebranding’ of the UFO phenomenon, attempting to ditch the pop culture baggage that attached to the term ‘UFO’ and re-frame the debate as the defense and national security issue that those of us studying the phenomenon knew it to be, ” Pope said. “Every government rightly wants to secure the territorial integrity of its airspace and ensure that all objects and phenomena in its airspace or in close proximity to its military assets are identified,” Pope went on to say.
Finishing up…it doesn’t look like our government is anywhere close to shutting down their covert agencies from these types of investigations. It looks like they are just presenting it to the American people in a new way, like a new coat of paint. Don’t expect them to tell us too much, that’s not the way the government works on issues like this. The question you have to ask yourself is, why? What are these folks up to and why are they still looking into this – after all it’s been 70 years. They haven’t figured it out yet? Or maybe they do know, it’s just you and I weren’t invited to the party.
Keep the Faith!
