A top intelligence official for the U.S. government admits that many of the UFO sightings are “difficult to explain.” Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe previewed the upcoming Pentagon report on unidentified flying objects that is soon to be declassified, and is concerned that the objects made maneuvers that our technology can’t replicate.
Ratcliffe spoke to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Friday, where he hinted that the U.S. government has a treasure trove of UFO sightings, including video and photos.
“There are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” Ratcliffe revealed. “Some of those have been declassified.”
Ratcliffe divulged that the unidentified aerial phenomena seem otherworldly.
“And when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain,” the DNI director added. “Movements that are hard to replicate that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
“We always look for an explanation. Weather can cause disturbances, visual disturbances. Sometimes we wonder whether or not our adversaries have techonologies that are a little bit further down the road than we thought or that we realized,” Ratcliffe explained. “But there are instances where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things that we’ve seen.”
Wow. Maria Bartiromo gets former DNI John Ratcliffe to talk about UFOs ahead a deadline for the government to disclose what it knows about them…

There have been UFO sightings by the U.S. armed services for years, including three videos that were released by the U.S. government titled “FLIR1,” “Gimbal,” and “GoFast.”
The Pentagon’s report on UFOs is expected to be released on June 1.
When former President Donald Trump signed the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief bill in December, there was a stipulation that intelligence agencies such as the FBI to the CIA would be required to brief Congress on “everything” they know about UFOs.
Therefore, the Committee directs the DNI, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of such other agencies as the Director and Secretary jointly consider relevant, to submit a report within 180 days of the date of enactment of the Act, to the congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena (also known as “anomalous aerial vehicles”), including observed airborne objects that have not been identified.
CNN reported, “That report must contain detailed analyses of UFO data and intelligence collected by the Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force and the FBI, according to the Senate intelligence committee’s directive.”
The U.S. intelligence agencies will also be required to identify “potential aerospace or other threats posed by the unidentified aerial phenomena to national security, and an assessment of whether this unidentified aerial phenomena activity may be attributed to one or more foreign adversaries.”
