The outstanding report printed by the New York Times has obtained intensive protection from nationwide information retailers and catapulted UFOs to the forefront of the general public consciousness for the primary time in fairly awhile.
Unlike many tales generated by the phenomenon, this explicit story appears to have taken maintain within the zeitgeist because of the seriousness with which the US authorities has been revealed to take UFOs.
To that finish, the response to the Pentagon’s affirmation has been largely curious fairly than dismissive, though it has additionally spawned some thought items on the propriety of spending tax payer cash on UFO analysis.
Amid the tidal wave of tales detailing Saturday’s Times piece, some intriguing new particulars in regards to the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program have come to mild.
Perhaps most tantalizing is that the group produced a 490-page report on their analysis that was ostensibly issued to the Department of Defense.
It is unknown what insights have been contained throughout the report in addition to whether or not or not it will likely be made obtainable to the general public.
Equally outstanding have been some new insights into the “metal alloys and other materials” that have been purportedly recovered and studied by the AATIP.
One of the Times’ reporters who penned the story elaborated on that side of the analysis in an interview with MSNBC.
Ralph Blumenthal defined that this “material from these objects that is being studied so that scientists can try and figure out what accounts for their amazing properties.”
Asked what sort of fabric it’s, he replied, “they don’t know. They’re studying it, but it’s some kind of compound that they don’t recognize.”
How the story unfolds from right here stays to be seen, however there’s hope within the UFO disclosure group that the great public curiosity within the Pentagon’s admission can create momentum in direction of extra revelations from the federal government.
More cynical observers and seasoned UFO researchers are taking one thing of a ‘wait and see’ strategy because the constantly-churning information cycle might push the phenomenon again into the periphery earlier than any progress in direction of solutions might be achieved as has occurred many occasions previously.
And some involved conspiracy theorists are already crying foul and warning folks that the ‘threat’ side of the AATIP’s mission could also be used to manufacture a ‘hostile ET’ narrative ought to this really be the beginning of some form of UFO disclosure.
While which will grow to be the case, the angle of many who’ve longed for UFO solutions appears to be that they’ll cross that proverbial bridge once they come to it as long as they obtain affirmation about ETs.
Ultimately it could take a while earlier than we all know if the Pentagon’s admission was a watershed second within the march in direction of UFO disclosure or just one other maddening misstep main us even additional into the darkish.
