What if UFOs Have Been a Cover for High-Tech – and Human – Defense Research Programs?

Yves here. The recent explosion of UFO sightings is all too convenient. I have long though but have not stuck my neck out and said that the UFO talk was to cover for experimental aircraft tests. Note we tend to assume they are manned, when Larry Johnson and others have pointed out that piloted warplanes are about as modern as cavalry.

Could the decades-long pursuit of unraveling the UFO mystery potentially function as a cover for advanced government research and testing programs for innovative forms of propulsion and craft design? Moreover, might the recent rollout of official government hearings signal a gradual disclosure of some of those capabilities? This scenario is worth considering, as the process of investigating UFOs comes into sharper public focus.

In 2023, fascination with Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) has spiked. David Grusch, a former intelligence official who led the analysis of UAPs within the U.S. military, told a Congressional hearing in July that the United States had been collecting non-human craft “for decades.” At the first Republican debate on August 23rd, candidates were asked about the president’s responsibility to provide information to the public about UFOs. And on August 31st, the Pentagon launched a new website providing the public with declassified information about sightings.

Mainstream intrigue surrounding UFOs was born following the 1947 Roswell incident, the crash of what was initially described by the U.S. military as a “flying disc” in Roswell, New Mexico, but later attributed to a weather balloon. To quell public fear and speculation, official government studies to investigate UFO/UAP reports, including Project Blue Book, Project Sign, and Project Grudge, were launched. While the government feared air warning systems could be overwhelmed by reports, it was also wary of Soviet attempts to boost false sightings and promote conspiracy theories that could instigate panic and allegations of a coverup.

During the Cold War, UFO reports became common, often coinciding with missile and rocket tests (a habit which continues today). Several Sovietand U.S. military personnel also testified that UFOs were able to temporarily take control over missile and nuclear facilities. However, in 1997, the CIA revealed that the military had lied to the public throughout the Cold War about many UFO sightings to obscure its black projects and keep Moscow in the dark about technological advancements. Blaming sightings on natural phenomena like ice crystals and temperature inversions fueled public distrust toward the government and its claims about UFOs/UAPs.

Many secret military aircraft were frequently mistaken for UFOs, such as the U-2 reconnaissance plane, introduced in the 1950s, which featured a gray frame that often reflected the sun. The SR-71 “Blackbird” meanwhile started service in 1966 and wasn’t declassified until the 1990s. Its distinctive shape, speed, and altitude capabilities were often mistaken for a UFO. The B-2 Spirit, introduced in the late 1980s, also had a unique aerodynamic design and its ability to control lift, thrust, and drag at low speeds often gave the appearance that it was hovering.

Since the Cold War, secretive experimental military aircraft have continued to generate UFO reports. But unexplained phenomena have also fueled conspiracy theories. In November 2004 off the coast of San Diego, Navy pilots filmed UFOs demonstrating rapid acceleration, physics-defying sudden changes in direction, and other feats in videos eventually released to the public in 2017. And despite formalizing a UFO/UAP reporting process in 2019, Navy pilots and other military personnel who have witnessed them have been hesitant to come forward due to fear of ridicule or professional repercussions.

The U.S. military’s reluctance to disclose UFO/UAP information is often linked to the need to protect classified technology. Military agencies can choose to neither confirm nor deny such information exists. But when the government transparency website, the Black Vault, submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the Navy for more UFO/UAP videos, it was denied because it would harm national security and “may provide adversaries valuable information regarding Department of Defense/Navy operations, vulnerabilities, and/or capabilities.”

Releasing these videos without additional information may also be an effective way for the U.S. military to hint at its own new technological capacities for various strategic, political, and scientific reasons. Suddenly revealing these technologies could result in rising geopolitical tensions and trigger a reaction, while merely hinting at it may also serve as a deterrence to adversaries. Gradually preparing the public for emerging technologies is equally as important, while encouraging speculation about UFO/UAPs could divert attention away from classified projects.

By clandestinely testing experimental new technologies on their own defenses without resorting to lethal forces, military agencies can also gain valuable insights into their capabilities and vulnerabilities in real-world scenarios.

A 2021 report by the DoD’s intelligence agencies also noted that many UFOs/UAPs were “technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity.” The New York Times broke the story days before an updated version was provided to Congress in 2022. An ongoing investigation by The Warzone meanwhile suggests there are a large number of hostile drones mistaken for UFOs/UAPs that the government has until recently failed to confront.

Being unable to properly identify another country’s experimental aircraft, by labeling it a UFO/UAP, would also demonstrate shortcomings in U.S. air defense systems. Similarly, releasing documentation of U.S. surveillance of other countries’ stealth aircraft and other technology would give them a better idea of U.S. military capabilities and would alert these countries that they were being surveilled.

In addition to other countries, companies are also responsible for a significant number of UFO/UAP reports. The first drones were manufactured more than a century ago in the UK and U.S., and the capabilities of the private sector have grown considerably since then. Camouflage technology has made commercial drones increasingly difficult to clearly identify, and hundreds of drones by China’s largest drone maker DJI, were noted to have entered restricted airspace in Washington D.C. in 2022 alone. And, of course, commercial drones can be purchased and used by other governments.

Nonetheless, much of the technological developments concerning advanced aircraft stem from the U.S. military and other agencies. Since the 1970s, NASA has expanded on ideas developed by scientist and engineer Arthur Kantrowitz to use lasers to launch satellites without fuel or an engine, with successful tests carried out in the late 1990s. The U.S. Air Force and NASA have both continued developing this technology in the 21st Century, while NASA has also explored plasma propulsion technologythat may have caused numerous UFO/UAP reports.

The U.S. Navy has pushed the boundaries of technology further with the development of laser-induced plasma technology, patented in 2018. This innovation can generate extremely high temperatures in the air, creating plasma that can be harnessed to form intricate shapes and lifelike optical illusions, even simulating aircraft performing seemingly impossible maneuvers. Additionally, the U.S. military has developed the ability to produce sound out of lasers, which would add an additional layer of realism to UFO/UAP sightings.

Over the last few years, increasing attention has also been brought to projects by Salvatore Cezar Pais, an aerospace engineer and scientist who has worked for the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD). Despite lacking empirical evidence and rigorous, peer-reviewed scientific scrutiny, his alleged breakthroughs in propulsion and energy generation would serve as some of the most groundbreaking technological breakthroughs in history.

Pais’s patents with the U.S. Navy relate to the development of advanced propulsion systems that could potentially lead to rapid thrust technology and an abundance of clean energy generation. This includes a “craft using an inertial mass reduction device,” which was patented in 2018, while a patent for a “plasma compression fusion device” was also filed but later appeared to be abandoned. Nonetheless, documents retrieved by The Warzone through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that his inventions are being considered for the Air Force, NASA, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Of course, like U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s proposed “Star Wars” missile defense system in the 1980s, Pais’s patents could be designed to bait adversaries into a costly arms race. That is not to say that these countries are not already developing their own fascinating projects. China has been drastically increasing its development of plasma technology in recent years, and alongside the UK, Germany, and Japan, is developing Active Flow Control (AFC) technology to improve aerodynamic performance in aircraft. European entities have also recently made breakthroughs in plasma propulsion technology, which may boost UFO/UAP reports across the continent.

Amid these developments, it remains crucial for the public to stay engaged and informed about UFOs/UAP – the more publicly observed the evidence is, the harder it becomes to manipulate. Considering the history of government audacity in crafting political and war propaganda, we should remain skeptical of the entities shaping narratives about extraplanetary intelligent life.

A shift toward destigmatizing and embracing a public approach to UFOs/UAP, both domestic and foreign, is essential. Alongside the Black Vault, initiatives like the open-data Galileo Project, spearheaded by Avi Loeb from Harvard University’s Astronomy Department, are actively seeking evidence of extraterrestrial life and pushing our understanding of outer space. By involving the public in the search for answers, we can bridge gaps in understanding and move closer to demystifying these phenomena.

    I can’t find the link right now, but a few years ago The Drive wrote up what was for me a very convincing argument that most recent UFO sightings can be explained by a combination of new/experimental surveillance drones (mostly probably Chinese) with possible spoofing tech, and fighter pilot confusion as their training focuses on high speed targets, not very slow or near stationary small aircraft.

    The simplest explanation is usually the best.

    1. The Rev Kev

      I’m afraid that something like Occam’s razor is a self-limiting tool. As an example, people have been reporting seeing “ball lightning” for centuries now so as the scientific establishment could not explain it, decided to simply label such witnesses as hallucinating or delusional. It was the simplest explanation. And so decades if not centuries of possible scientific inquiry were shut down as not being worth it-


      Don’t forget too that there was a link here on NC from the US military showing a round object moving at high speed at low altitude in Afghanistan for which they had no explanation. So what I am saying is that new discoveries are not be be made in places that you fully understand but in areas which you don’t.

      1. Jams O'Donnell

        People have been seeing ‘UFO’s and other strange vehicles in the sky for hundreds of years. Similarly, ‘Alien abductions’ and other associated events. It is simply incredible that the US ‘Defence’ industry, which produces such turkeys as the F-35, could produce vehicles which have the supposed performance reported by pilots. Jaques Vallee has provided what I think is the most reasonable explanation, which is that these events are of psychic origin, and are linked to a whole managerie of other phenomena like ESP, ghosts, poltergeists, etc. The idea that there is a ‘technology’ attached to such things is very unlikely.

        1. PelhamKS

          Good point about defense industry turkeys. But I’ll posit that at some point defense R&D could have diverged into two separate paths, with one pursuing UFO-like technology. The problem here is that the more esoteric R&D would had to have occurred many decades ago, achieving very rapid success to account for, say, Roswell or the UFO flap over the nation’s capital in 1952.

        2. Craig H.

          I read Jacques Vallee’s recent volume 5 of his Forbidden Science journals 2001-2010. There is way more valuable information in that one book than in all of the news stories, congress testimony, &c since the New York Times story in December 2017 which started the modern wave.

          1. The Advanced Aerospace Weapons Program was the one organization working on the problem. Managed by Vallee’s longtime collaborator Robert Bigelow. The technical lead on the project was Colin Kolm who has written a decent book about the earlier Skinwalker Ranch project. Vallee was there from Day 1. Day 1 was in August 2008. Page 425. It was totally classified until the “leak” in the December 17 2017 New York Times story by Helene Cooper, Ralph Blumenthal and Leslie Kean.


          Vallee’s participation was continuous but unenthusiastic as he has been lied to by the government many times before. See the previous four volumes of Forbidden Science.

          2. He learned about the Nimitz tic tac episode which happened in 2004 from Doug Kurth, who is one of the pilots from the Nimitz and later an employee of Bigelow’s organization. This was in January 2009. P. 467.

          3. What the government has for sure is a few fragments of weird metal associated with UFO witnessed-incidents that fell off of UFO’s and were preserved by witnesses.

          4. Reports of alien bodies and recovered crashed craft are stories.

          5. He is pessimistic anything will change soon.

          Nothing in the book December 2017 forward.

          There is no evidence that the Air Force or the Space Force or Lockheed Martin has any aircraft with alien or parallel universe technology. The Richard Dolan “leak of the century” is third hand information. Aerospace exec to Wilson to Davis. At least third hand. If you or Dolan talk about it that makes it at least fourth hand. Vallee’s fourth hand report is on page 201. If you are skeptical as I am you don’t believe the anonymous aerospace executive has seen any flying saucers or even talked to one person who has seen any flying saucers which makes it at least fifth hand for discussion purposes.

          If that is the leak of the century I’d say the security is tight.

        1. WobblyTelomeres

          Ball lightning was a key member of my son’s goblin deck. I’ve seen them in action. Of course, that was, guessing, 28 years ago.

          1. Cristobal

            As a senior in a Missouri high school, during physics class, the last class of the day, a ball of lightning entered through the window, rolled across the floor betweeen the teacher and the class, and bbroke up with it hit the wall. No one was hurt, no electromagnetic effects, but we were all suitably freaked out.

        2. Donald

          Rev Kev is right— ball lightning has been reported for a very long time and dismissed because scientists don’t have a good theory for it yet.

          As for UFO’s, I hadn’t heard that lasers could produce things that look like UFO’s, so if that is true it might possibly explain some sightings. Maybe. But the older sightings are similar to the newer ones, often involving metallic craft ( or large balls of light at night) which do seemingly impossible things.

          So I don’t know what to make of the laser claim. What I am sure of is that if you take the reports at face value, with metallic craft doing impossible maneuvers at incredible accelerations and speeds with no noticeable exhaust or propulsion system— well, we could no more do that than a secret government plan could have sent people to the moon in Jules Verne’s day. That understates it. The craft seem to violate Newton’s laws. If we have secret craft, part of the concealment plot involves wild exaggerations of their capabilities. There are no Tony Starks with magic iron suits that also do impossible things.

          I am agnostic about this. But the skeptics seem as emotional and knee jerk in their debunking as any of the believers. Sometimes it is best just to say “ we really don’t know right now whether there is something really strange going on”

        3. GC54

          My wife saw ball lightning emerge from the fireplace and drift across the room to disappear at a window. She was 9 at the time and reported the event lucidly almost immediately during a storm in the VA mountains. She had never heard of the phenomenon prior.

      2. hk

        I tend to think there is something of a pathology about the “UFO” phenomena that makes the whole field cesspool of insanity.

        I think we can all agree that there really are many things that take place in real life that we do not understand. We can also accept that people see these things. People may even be able to obtain some real “evidence” of these things, if opportunities permit.

        But many of these things, we do not understand. We don’t really know what to say about them other than, well, they may exist…or not.

        But the most widely known “UFO fans” (how many are there, really, even those who are willing to accept there may really be “UFO’s,” whatever they areally are) who are way too eager to concoct stories far beyond what limited evidence there is.

        The problem with the UFO fans is compounded by the official know-it-alls taking the extremist position on the opposite side: we know everything that’s worth knowing; everyone who thinks they saw such things is kooky or making stuff up.

        We see something similar with events that are far more earthly: say, TDS or Ukraine War or BRICS or such. The “official media” is too eager to whitewash everything, dismiss the strange things that are definitely going on that are not consistent with the conventional wisdom, and stamp everyone who even recognizes them as kooks. The Alternate Media is too eager to come up with way too elaborate stories that go well beyond what data we have, imagining a complete new utopian world emerging form the void to replace the old one. The reality in these things comes down to just that the world is far more complex than we imagine things to be and that the best thing is to accept our lack of knowledge and triad the information into categories that we can make sense of, we can’t make sense of, and things that we think we can make sense, but not sure, and put together everything to better make sense of the world.

          This I agree with very much although it would be nice to have some more clarity.

  2. i just dont like the gravy

    I am so sick of UFOs.

    Why can’t people find awe and inspiration in nature as it is? Why must we chase the dragon of sci-fi tomfoolery?

    If the CIA-Industrial-Complex really has cracked the UFO code, then we are truly doomed.

    1. PelhamKS

      I’ve been a UFO fan since the 1960s, but I have to admit that after more than half a century, I’m beginning to tire of the subject as well.

      Briahna Joy Gray on The Hill Rising nicely summarized my feeling when reviewing the congressional testimony of a supposed Air Force intelligence whistleblower who said, among other things, that people had been assassinated to help cover up what the military knows about UFOs. With a sigh, she simply said, “Who?” Who was killed? If they’re dead now, they can’t be harmed by disclosure. More broadly, where is even a single pebble of solid evidence to back up this mountain of assertions?

      One can have all sorts of fun, as I have for decades, speculating on this most elusive of all subjects. But the fun is yielding to anger, frustration and, ultimately, exhaustion. Mainly exhaustion.

      1. OA

        I have also been interested in UFOs for 50 years, and for a long while consider an extraterrestrial technology explanation to be most likely for the more inexplicable events.

        However, there is a new factor which throws the whole subject into more doubt. Modern smartphones. Several billion people are carrying quality cameras in their pocket, or hand, (note how many people are walking, running, shopping, driving, while glued to their devices?).

        So, the number of UFO images in social media should be massive in recent years, But this isn’t happening, the number of UFO reports is probably no more than in the 60s, 70s, 80s, when far fewer people had video technology on their person.

        It is puzzling, for sure.

        1. Smelly Unemployed Person

          People are too distracted by their phones to notice anything around them let alone UFOs.

  3. JP

    RE: “Simplest explanation is usually the best.”

    No, it’s usually NOT the best (the simplest explanation is actually the UFO myth).

    The reason for the mythology itself is to draw loonies into “phenomena research,” which drives away legitimate researchers and allows FED Personel(TM) to fester inside the community where they can easily monitor and control it, since the loonies provide the necessary cover for them.

    So, first, the home public is left without information pertaining to actual coming military build-up and foreign spies are also drawn into confusion when they have to deal with the loonies or are pushed away altogether.

    But realising there is coordinated government effort with multiple agencies and many private agents conspiring to delude the public is just too complicated an argument to make in the era of that sad joke, called the “occam razor” (almost as false as the old meme: “never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity”).

  4. southern appalachian

    We in the US are behind on some things, hypersonic missiles being one. Maybe we’ve got fancy propulsion systems being developed somewhere but I think that’s contrary to the overall course at present. All those smart people went into finance back in the whatever, 80’s 90’s.

  5. DJG, Reality Czar

    An interesting compilation by author Ruehl.

    I lose confidence when I read that Paiz’s discoveries: “Despite lacking empirical evidence and rigorous, peer-reviewed scientific scrutiny, his alleged breakthroughs in propulsion and energy generation would serve as some of the most groundbreaking technological breakthroughs in history.”


    I note the date of the Roswell incident, 1947, and Ruehl comments how it launched UFO watching in the U S of A. What has gone on for the last seventy-five or so years? Low-grade war and high anxiety. I tend to think of the sightings as a signal of distress.

    On the third hand, I’m going to stick with the old-fashioned explanation: Dragons.

    To wit, an article at the University of Warwick UK site:
    ‘In 793CE, monks writing the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle recorded sightings of dragons in the skies above northern England.

    ‘”In this year terrible portents appeared in Northumbria, and miserably afflicted the inhabitants: these were exceptional flashes of lightning and fiery dragons were seen flying in the air.” – Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (Year 793)

    ‘While the streaks of fire they witnessed were likely the result of a meteor shower or aurorae, they weren’t the first or the last to see dragons in the night sky. Dr Elizabeth Stanway from Warwick’s Astrophysics research group looks at some of the other legends, myths and stories linking dragons and space.’

  6. Acacia


    the UFO talk was to cover for experimental aircraft tests

    Yes, this is basically what Adam Curtis argues in one part of his documentary HyperNormalisation (2016), which draws on an earlier documentary called Mirage Men (2013), directed by John Lundberg, which explores the premise that the US govt has used UFO mythology as a cover for various advanced military projects.

    I guess there couldn’t be any possible connection between the sudden, inexplicable uptick in UFO “sightings” and the US trying desperately to catch up in hypersonic missile tech? That would just be pure CT. ;)

  7. Wukchumni

    Then: Take me to your leaders

    Now: Lead me to your takers

    As far as UFO’s go, I once again endorse this Sierra sojourn mainly because I want it to be the real deal, being in the back of beyond of believeability of a telepathic Venusian encounter in person en route along with good old UFO encounter @ Moose Lake* in Sequoia NP in 1955

    “Suddenly,” Oscar informed Arnold, “I called out in amazement, for five or six moving blobs of light rose up the sides of the large rock, and near these a long string of softly glowing lights. They were so close together that they almost seemed to blend into each other. They appeared as if they were coming from some sort of portholes! The smaller lights came to rest on the big rock surface; while the huge object, which I estimated to be about a quarter of a mile long, began to very slowly rose up to a point about one-third of the way up the shoulder of Milk Ridge Peak. And there it stopped!”


    * when you look at Moose Lake across the way a few air miles away, it looks tilted, and I prefer my lakes to be level.

  8. Anon

    I have argued as much in these comments in the past. Not that the tech was/wasn’t sourced from aliens, who cares, what matters is if they have it in their possession, also, perhaps the manner by which they obtained it. Would explain the seeming overconfidence in foreign policy, and also Putin’s hesitation in executing the conflict. My fear was that if he committed the bulk of his forces in Ukraine, there would be some nuclear disaster within Ukraine’s borders to shore up his desperate, losing, journalistic position……………. but then perhaps we don’t need ‘conventional’ OR nuclear weapons.

    Hollywood is a fearsome weapon.

  9. Roxan

    I actually saw UFOs twice, back in the early 1980s when I lived in Longmont, CO, a small prairie town at that time. The first time, we had several friends over and we all saw them. We were not drunk or stoned, and I was totally an ‘unbeliever’. We saw what could only be called several ‘flocks’ of glowing white discs swooping together in the manner of birds, only to suddenly disappear. These were not far off specks but fairly low in the sky. I began watching the sky, after that. A few days later, I saw what appeared to be an enormous ‘mother ship’ hanging over our house–there was no way to figure out it’s actual size–but it was close enough that I could see windows around the edge and some sort of energy field on the bottom. It was similar to the ship in ‘Encounters of the Third Kind’, which came out the next year or so. This ship was accompanied by more ‘swarms’ of the smaller discs, who then suddenly disappeared (I think they went inside) and the whole thing blanked out. I don’t know what they were but I doubt we had any technology like that.

  10. John Beech

    If we have advanced tech, then I, for one, hope we keep our mouths shut. Neither do I believe the President owes me, or anyone else, any form of explanation or advanced notice. In fact, the less said, the better.

  11. Fred

    I just have a hard time believing that someone can fly across the galaxy and then crash, or just do anal probes.

    1. Susan the other

      Me too. I think it is far more likely that the CIA is doing the anal probes. And when it comes to the military making a public request for observers to report sightings, it isn’t that the military doesn’t have a veritable arsenal of modern weapons based on ongoing discoveries in physics that few of them even understand, it’s more that they are evaluating how stealthy they are. Or how foreign. I do think the military has been playing this game since the 50s.

  12. Tom Stone

    I have seen ball lightning bounce down a mountain side and across a lake.
    Silver lake on Hwy 88 in the Sierra’s.
    As to UFO’s/UAP’s there have been too many sightings by too many people, including a late friend who was a commercial freight airline pilot and who had 2 UFO’s parallel him for 15 minutes on a flight from Seattle to SFO.
    My Grandmother Fuller saw one land and take off from less than 1/2 mile in broad daylight outside of Stockton in the late 50’s, if you have ever seen a representation of “Brittania” you have her to a “T”.
    95% plus of sightings are explainable by natural phenomena.
    The remainder are not.
    I understand that the math works better for parallel universes than it does for FTL travel, but that’s well above my pay grade.

  13. Synoia

    No discussion of the apparent right angel turns UFOs appear to perform.

    Our physics is cl Ear: A body with mass cannot perform a right angle turn.

    I have not seen any of the films of UFOS.

    I do not claim to have ever seen a UFO. The closet I have seen were turds coming out of the back of a cow.

  14. Snailslime

    I don’t think there is any chance the US Goverment/Power Elites have the sort of discipline and self control to keep hidden technology and weaponry as hyperadvanced as some fantasize, without using them openly on a large scale.

    They’d be constantly lording it over everybody else.

    They are extremely prideful, narcissistic, sadistic, puerile psychopaths enjoying nothing more than spreading fear and lording over others, bragging, showing off, reveling in every bit of imagined superiority for all the world to see.

    The idea that they seriously could or would hide any massive, actual superiority, not the tiniest chance.

    The idea that they could have the power to dramatically eliminate all their adversaries from the fate of the earth and NOT do it, is completely ludicrous.

    The US Deep State would do a nuclear first strike on Russia and China the second they they thought they could get away with it without being destroyed themselves.

    Then they would proceed to nuke North Korea, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and perhaps a couple more places.

    Not only to eliminate potential threats, but simply out of bloodlust and the irresistable need to establish eternal, godlike dominance, ultimately just because they could.

    And they would WANT everyone to know it was them.

    And here we are talking about a situation where they would have only a relatively small, gradual but still decisive advantage.

    Nah, the US deep state doesn’t have any secret, hyperadvanced magic tech, the world would look completely different if they did (much, much worse than it already is), it’s nonsense.

    That does not mean they have various secret tech.

    But so do plenty of other countries, presumably, who do their own secret testing.

    But none of it is anywhere near as crazy advanced as the UFO stories often make it sound.

    The US powermongers know that and probably know or at least strongly suspect/fear that the others can do what the US can do as well.

    I actually think space aliens or all of us living inside a simulation and the UFOs being the simulators or artifacts/tools of their’s are MUCH less ludicrous than any hypothesis that would require US deep state elites to resist giving in all their worst impulses for decades or withholding how powerful they are instead of lording over everyone with maniacal glee.

    Not if they have any really decisive advantage, and If it doesn’t give them that, it’s not hyperadvanced magic tech and nothing remotely as impressive as the UFO stories make it sound.

    Seeing as *familyblogging* with peoples’ heads is the only thing we can really say for certain they are truly good at, far more likely would be a systematic campaign to mess with peoples’ heads to hopefully make them believe that the US has secret, hyperadvanced magic tech even though it really doesn’t.

    Though that, like the entire UFO nonsense, kinda reeks of desperation and them truly running out of ideas.

  15. Tony Orme

    This article reads like a standard meme going all the way back to the 1940s (the actual first widely-reported UFOs, amongst pilots on both sides, were the foo-fighters in WW2). First, mention some low-grade UFO reports (unfortunately, there are many to choose from) that were probably planes/balloons/rockets etc. Then let your readers into the secret: the UFOs are really our (or somebody else’s) secret weapons. Naturally, it’s all terribly hush-hush.

    In reality, since the 1940s there have been many credible reports by high-quality witnesses of craft that exhibit performance that cannot be matched today, let alone then. If Mr John Ruehl knows of some amazing technology that the the military was not willing to use in WW2, or the Korean War, or the Vietnam War, etc, and is still stalling on today, then he should give more details. Otherwise, this story is simply a holdover from the silly season.
