In the wake of the revealing “Pentagon UFO Report,” which dropped over the summer of 2021, the Department of Defense announced that they had formed a new “UFO task force” that will look seriously into recent sightings of aerial phenomena. 

Many thought that the Pentagon report that admitted that UFOs exist and that they are being seriously investigated by the government would herald in a new era of openness about Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. However, professional UFO hunters are skeptical, believing that the newly formed task force will just provide more of the same coverups and disinformation the government has been putting out about UFOs for over 50 years. 

The official name of the Pentagon “UFO task force” is the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group, or AOIMSG.

“Officially,” the group will work with intelligence agencies to document and analyze reports of encounters with unidentified objects or “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” from military pilots.

The new office will report to the undersecretary of defense for Intelligence and Security.

It will oversee the entire government’s study of UFOs with a focus on sightings in restricted military airspaces. An unnamed spokeswoman for the group said it will also “assess and mitigate any associated threats to the safety of flight and national security.”

The creation of the new office has been justified by the Defense Department as a way to provide uniformity in the reporting process of these UFOs. However, some UFO researchers are calling the new creation an “insulting” attempt to stomp out the efforts of civilian organizations and leaders in Congress.

“This is a subject with a provable history of secrecy, and anything that lacks a new openness about the information is subject to more, possibly inappropriate control,” said Ron James, a spokesperson for the Mutual UFO Network, which bills itself as “the oldest and largest UFO organization in the world,” per the report.

“We don’t see that this means new resources will be dedicated to the matter. We believe that considerable resources have always been dedicated to the matter at some level inside deep government and industry,” James added.

Others believe the Pentagon is trying to control a topic that should belong in the area of scientific study. 

“It is clear that the Pentagon does not want any civilian interference in this,” said Claus Svahn, chairman for the Archives for the Unexplained, a digital library for UFO sightings.

“This is a power struggle over who should have access to UAP information.”

Luis Elizondo, a former government insider who sparked renewed interest in unidentified aerial phenomena by publicizing video from military aircraft, wrote in an op-ed in the Hill that he is “not convinced (that) burying this (issue) in the deep, dark bowels of the Pentagon under an intelligence organization is the best way to shed light on a topic that needs a whole-of-government approach.” Instead, the government should bring in and rely on outside experts, similar to the problem of climate change.

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand sponsored a bipartisan amendment to the military budget bill to support government study of the issue to determine if any of these sightings could be threats from unknown technologies. 

The amendment calls for the creation of a new advisory committee made of experts from civilian agencies such as NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration and from academia to strengthen public discourse on the findings.

“While we appreciate the DOD’s attention to the issue, the AOIMSG doesn’t go nearly far enough to help us better understand the data we are gathering on UAPs,” said Gillibrand’s spokeswoman Lizzie Landau.

She said the possible amendment’s framework “does much more to address the UAP issue while also maintaining public oversight.”

However, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby pushed back on the criticism. “This is a chance for us to be much more organized in the way we process these reports,”

“And we will certainly continue to be as transparent as we can about these phenomena and the impact that they may or may not be having on our ability to operate.”

Still, Kirby’s words did little to get rid of the frustration many “ufologists” have.

“To be ‘as transparent as we can’ means nothing much,” Elizondo says. Adding that under the auspices of the DoD, UAPs will only be seen as a threat and “treated as that.”

One thought on “New UFO Government Agency Expected To Be Just As “Good” As The Last”
  1. The Pentagon is in for a rude surprise. Many of the public have already been in touch with the Pentagon’ so called Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. They cannot stop us. They will never know those of us that have had great encounters with the UAE’s. They are coming and soon. They are coming in peace to help us and that puts the Pentagon out of business. By that time, the Pentagon will be enlightened and will also love what is coming that cannot be stopped. The Pentagon needs to get off it’s high horse and stop being Dictators.
