You might have heard that former President Obama’s library, in Illinois, has documents relating to UFOs stored there. John Greenewald told me that he filed a FOIA request seeking that information but probably won’t see anything for quite a while. According to him, he was told to expect a 16-year delay on action on his request.
In his response, John said that he was just looking for unclassified UFO material, but that didn’t significantly reduce the time frame for the response. I mentioned that I lived close to Illinois but John said he had told them the same thing. Traveling to the library just wouldn’t be enough because all the documents had to be reviewed regardless of classified status.
John also received, just yesterday, the version of the report supplied to Congress about UAPs due last June. It was heavily redacted. For those interested in seeing the document, which you can see here:
Again, much of it was redacted so we don’t even know if there were 144 incidents or if there were 144 reports which could mean multiple reports of the same incident. In other words, there would be fewer than 144 incidents. We just don’t know what that number might be. This certainly doesn’t suggest that transparency is the watch word in this new investigation.
He also mentioned that there was a chart of UFO shapes (well, UAP shapes) included, but most of that was redacted so that we don’t know what shapes were being reported. To John, it seemed strange that the shapes would be redacted.
In fact, during my interview with John, which can be accessed on the audio player to the left, we discussed Disclosure. Neither one of us believed that we were moving in that direction and the Chris Mellon statements a few days ago, and a confirmation that most of the reports would be classified, suggested that secrecy was already in place. For those interested in the visual aspect of all this, you can watch the interview here:
So, while we wait for that, we can look at other sighting reports. There was a recent report from Islamabad, Pakistan. The witness said that when he first spotted the object, it was just a round, dark spot high overhead. The witness said the UFO was in sight for two hours and that he took thirteen minutes of video, zooming in and out on the object. Although it had no real shape to the unaided eye, when he zoomed in, he saw a rough triangular shape.
While he was puzzled by the UFO, there were suggestions that it might be a giant kite that was related to the Pakistan Basant Festival, that was taking place at the time.
I also found the report from a military pilot flying over the South China sea on November 4. He said that he spotted a dozen UFOs, in three formations that eventually disappeared into the clouds. There were three sets of four lights, each line following the one in front of it. The pilot said that he didn’t know what it was and had through it might be a reflection on the cockpit canopy. But the video lasted for nearly a minute which tended to rule out reflections. He was flying at 39,000 feet and said that the lights looked like no aircraft with which he was familiar.
Finally, the witness in Phoenix, Arizona, on March 3 of this year, reported that he had seen an egg-shaped object that that he thought was weird looking. He said it
wasn’t a helicopter and it made no noise. Not a very impressive sighting, except for the photograph. It reminded me of the Pakistan sighting of the somewhat triangular-shaped UFO. While this isn’t exactly repeatability, it is close. That made it interesting and if I can develop additional details, I will report them here. The photograph can be found there as well.
I mentioned these sightings just because they are some of the latest reported but also because they suggest a trend, well, two actually. First is the number of sightings of triangular objects has increased dramatically in the last few years. Second, with so many cell phones out in the world, with better and better camera capabilities, we should be seeing more and better UFO photographs. It is only a matter of time before we have a sighting in which there are multiple independent witnesses that will provide some very interesting and scientific data.
