When America's Top Intel Chief Admits UFOs Buzzing Our Warships May Be Aliens, Does Anything Else Matter?

Giphy Images.

By now every man, woman and child on Earth should be aware of this image of the so-called "Tic Tac" UFO. It's nothing less than the biggest, most historic development in human history in our lifetimes. Not who the president is. Not the economy or the virus or the climate or the Kardashians. It's this. Ten centuries from now, if humans are still kicking around on this rock, they'll look back at the earliest years of the 2000s as the time when it was clearly revealed to us that we are not alone. That's whether the beings controlling these crafts are here to study us, help us, or enslave us to mine natural resources to fuel their interstellar travel.

As a reminder, this footage was captured by the instrumentation aboard a US Navy jet assigned to the USS Nimitz in 2004. Essentially the most sophisticated equipment ever created by humankind for the locating and tracking of flying objects. News of it was first released in the New York Times. And CBS had this explanation:

This week on 60 Minutes, correspondent Bill Whitaker reported on unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, more commonly known as UFOs.

Whitaker interviewed two former Navy pilots, Cmdr. Dave Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich, who said they witnessed something "unsettling" and unexplainable while flying over the Pacific Ocean in November 2004. Fravor is a graduate of the TOPGUN naval flight program. He was a commander of the F/A-18F squadron on the USS Nimitz at the time of the encounter.

Dietrich, a former F/A-18F pilot, has never before spoken publicly about what she saw that day. 

"It was unidentified. And that's why it was so unsettling to us. Because we weren't expecting it. We couldn't classify it," said Dietrich.

To recap: The very best we have to offer, using our very best equipment, recording definitive proof of something flying around the most powerful military unit ever formed, a US Naval carrier group, using a technology beyond our comprehension. Cmdr. Fravor has said publicly at one point a UAP was tracked dropping straight down from a height of 80,000 feet (commercial airliners fly at 30,000 feet) to one foot above the waves. In less than a second. 

And while the Department of Defense continues to put out this information in small, digestible, Fun Size portions like the cheap house on the block at Halloween, the agencies that cable news loves to refer to as "our intelligence community" has been comparatively silent about the whole phenomenon. But even that's beginning to change:

Source - UFO’s buzzing warships and being reported by US pilots could be of alien origin, America’s top spy chief has said in a stunning admission.

Avril Haines, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), who oversees all 16 US spy agencies including the FBI and CIA, was speaking at the Our Future in Space event at the Washington National Cathedral. …

And she admitted there remains things about the strange encounters which the intelligence community simply does not understand – highlighting the need for more investigation.

“The main issues that Congress and others have been concerned about is safety of flight concerns and counterintelligence issues,” the DNI told the forum.

“Always there’s also the question of ‘is there something else that we simply do not understand, which might come extraterrestrially?” she said.

Haines appeared to hesitate when mentioning the world “extraterrestrially”.

But she has now become the most senior person in the intelligence community to hint at an alien link.

I'm going to admit that having a government official say they don't know what we're dealing with can be considered weak sauce. That's pretty much what the hugely overhyped Pentagon report said. But still, this is progress. Having America's top spy chief acknowledge the existence of UAPs in and of itself is a giant leap forward. And the fact that she used the adjective form of "extraterrestrial" could be considered historic. Even if she did put it in a question that included "might" as a qualifier. It's like battling an addiction. The first step is to admit you have a problem. 

And in this case, the problem is that our most restricted airspace is getting it's tower buzzed by craft we cannot identify, protect our troops from or even comprehend. And for the first time in our nation's history, people at the highest levels of government are finally admitting these things exist. That they're not simply dismissing them as weather balloons or swamp gas or the ravings of conspiracy theory crackpots. And if you still don't accept it, then the fact that our Director of National Intelligence thinks they're real should scare you more than the presence of aliens in our skies ever would.
