The world will soon learn more about what U.S. intelligence agencies and the military know about UFOs.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Fox News talked about classified information that will be released to the public regarding “unexplained aerial sightings” as they are now called.
In the March 19 interview, Ratcliffe explained there are more occurrences than what has been shared with the public and that agencies have downplayed the information, hoping to publicize the sightings when there are proper explanations that are accessible and understandable by the public.
We are “talking about objects that have been 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, movements that are hard to replicate, and traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom,” Ratcliffe stated.
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…

As reported by the New York Times and USA Today, a more detailed report will be released in accordance with the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, which was passed by the Senate in late 2020 and signed by President Donald Trump. The bill shockingly demanded that the director of national intelligence “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.”
The report on “UFOS” will include all data found through “geospatial intelligence, signals intelligence, human intelligence and measurement and signals intelligence.” Classified information held by the Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force and the FBI will be included as well.
Much of the interest revolves around how the objects fly and that they are “traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom,” Ratcliffe stated.
“I actually wanted to get this information out and declassify it before I left office,” Ratcliffe said, “but we weren’t able to get it down into an unclassified format that we were able to talk about quickly enough,” he said.
The report on UFOs is due out by June 1.
