“I haven’t seen anything on those properties to date to suggest that there has been an alien visitation, an alien crash or anything of the sort,” said Ronald Moultrie, assistant secretary of defense for intelligence and security.
The Pentagon will investigate all new reports
The All Domains Troubleshooting Office (AARO) was created in July to investigate unidentified objects in the sky, underwater, or in space.
Its establishment followed unidentified flying objects that military pilots have observed but sometimes haven’t had the courage to report.
The AARO is headed by Sean Kirkpatrick, who said the Pentagon received “several hundred” reports on the phenomenon this year.
“I would just say that we are structuring our analysis to be very comprehensive and rigorous. We will review everything,” Kirkpatrick said. “As a physicist, I have to adhere to the scientific method, and I will follow that data and the science wherever I go.”
