Pentagon Insider: The Government Is Ignoring UFOs and It Could Impact Humanity

Last year, the news broke that the Pentagon had secretly been investigating reports of unidentified flying objects. Apparently, someone high up in the US government felt that the threat of UFOs is so great that the military needs to seek out and learn from weird and wonderful accounts of flying saucers that the majority of people believe to be utter nonsense.

According to a former US deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence, Christopher Mellon, the government's actions are woefully inadequate. There are both threats and opportunities presented by UFO stories, and if our country doesn't act soon, it could end up suffering as a result.

According to Mellon, who is now involved with the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science (TTSA), there are a lot of weird things going on in the night's sky above us that currently can't be completely explained. The worst-case scenario is that these are the scouts of an invading alien race, but if reported UFOs are actually the result of other nations' advanced military technological advancements, things still look fairly bad for the US.

Apparently, we're looking at the potential for an all new Cold War, much like the space race of the 1960s, that the US desperately needs to take more seriously:

"If these craft mean that Russia, China or some other nation is concealing an astonishing technological breakthrough to quietly extend its lead, surely we should respond as we did then. Perhaps Russian President Vladi­mir Putin's recent chest-thumping claims about propulsion breakthroughs are not pure braggadocio. Or, if these craft really aren't from Earth, then the need to figure out what they are is even more urgent."

Mellon states that one of the big problems with the Pentagon's meager ongoing investigation is that the department lacks the ability to pool resources from other parts of the US military. Pilots' accounts of weird phenomena aren't passed on to the UFO task force, and instead remain undisturbed in the archives of various government agencies.



As often happens with these kinds of statements, Mellon brought the discussion back to the 2004 San Diego incident in which a pilot spotted a "tic-tac" shaped UFO which was capable of flying against the wind. While this account has since been dismissed by many skeptics, the pilot in question insists that this could well have been the first sighting of an oncoming "War of the Worlds".

In the meantime, Mellon believes, we're struggling from rampant skepticism that is keeping us from fully admitting just how strange some of these stories sound, as we poke fun at anyone brave enough to step forward and suggest that further research is needed:

Opening quote
"On several occasions, I have met with senior Pentagon officials, and at least one followed up and obtained briefings confirming incidents such as the [San Diego] case. But nobody wants to be 'the alien guy' in the national security bureaucracy; nobody wants to be ridiculed or sidelined for drawing attention to the issue. This is true up and down the chain of command, and it is a serious and recurring impediment to progress."
Closing quote


Mellon makes some interesting points about the possibility that UFOs might be advanced military creations from other nations around the Earth, but it's hard to believe that these are genuinely the result of aliens, if only because we haven't seen any other indication that intelligent alien life exists anywhere in the universe, let alone on our doorstep.
