Why Is the U.S. Government So Secretive About UFOs?

After nearly 70 years of secrecy and mystery, the U.S. government is finally pulling back the curtain ever so slightly on UFOs. Last year, the Pentagon acknowledged it was studying the phenomena after several mysterious and unexplained encounters between UFOs and carrier-based aircraft shocked the world. And herein lies the answer to why the government has maintained a veil of secrecy over UFOs for half a century.

Our military is very concerned that the unexplained phenomena pose a direct threat to the United States.

Indeed, as national security expert Tom Rogan explains in the Washington Examiner, the nexus between the military and UFOs is undeniable — and not a little frightening.

If you ask a Pentagon representative about a specific UFO incident, as I did most recently last week, you’ll get a boring response like: “Our aviators train as they fight. Any intrusions that may compromise the security of our operations, tactics, or procedures is of great concern. As the investigation of unidentified aerial phenomena sightings is ongoing, we will not discuss individual sighting reports or observations.”

By “aviators,” the Pentagon is referencing the particular frequency with which UFOs tend to interact with U.S. naval aviators operating off aircraft carriers. But what the Pentagon is leaving out is why the UFOs tend to run into those naval aviators. And that cuts to the heart of why the Pentagon is concerned about UFOs.

UFOs are, if nothing else, high-performance aircraft capable of literally flying rings around our best pilots

Because the government’s assessment, though they won’t admit it, is that the UFOs are popping up near the aircraft carriers due to those carriers being nuclear-powered. Note also that UFOs also like to pop up near nuclear submarines and Air Force nuclear weapons bases. Now recognize that this paradigm has been occurring since the Manhattan Project operations at Los Alamos, New Mexico, and also at nuclear sites in the Soviet Union and Russia.

Oh, and as Robert Hastings documents, these UFOs have sometimes even temporarily shut down U.S. nuclear weapons systems. Interesting, right?

Yes, and not a little unsettling.

Now imagine you’re a military intelligence officer doing a threat assessment of know UFO phenomena. This is what you’re faced with.

You see the nuclear connection point, and you’re struck by something odd going on. Now, add to the nuclear issue that some UFOs are intelligently operated machines capable of instantaneously reaching hypersonic speeds. Oh, and that they’re also anti-gravity and invisibility capable, and they have been tracked moving in and out of Earth orbit, the atmosphere, and underwater. Suddenly, you have something that is making the U.S. military’s most advanced capabilities, and those of every other military on Earth, look like an absurd joke in comparison.

You’re left with an unpleasant conclusion: If whatever is controlling these things intends harm, we don’t have a chance.

We never did have a chance, of course. If the UFOs are, indeed, extraterrestrial in origin, any species capable of traveling tens of trillions of miles through space would, by definition, be thousands of years more technologically advanced than we are. It would be like a modern American army going up against neolithic bands armed with spears and rocks. No contest.

The bottom line is that whatever the government actually knows about UFOs is not likely to be revealed anytime soon because admitting to being defenseless against a potential adversary would be extremely unsettling. Bad optics, at a minimum. But what really worries our intel people is what would happen if the U.S. government actually went public with what we know about the aircraft.

The extension is that even if the U.S. government believes, as it does, that these UFOs aren’t Chinese or Russian, publicizing the issue itself risks another danger. Namely, that if the U.S. shares what it knows about UFOs, China or Russia (the Russian government has long been very interested in UFOs) might learn enough to replicate the associated technologies behind UFOs for themselves. And seeing as those technologies are almost certainly built around space-time manipulation, if Beijing or Moscow figures it out before the U.S. does, we have a rather large problem.

While there is certainly much to learn of what the government knows about the UFO phenomenon, it’s extremely doubtful that anyone has all the answers. But there’s one thing to consider above all others. Time and again, UFOs have shown the ability to appear and disappear at will. This suggests a highly advanced cloaking system.

It also suggests that they only appear when they want to appear, raising more questions about who and what they are.
