Last question. You have been pressing the Department of Defense for more information about UAPs, also known as UFOs, have you gotten any answers?
The writing is on the wall. Despite some half-hearted feints toward “unclear” objects that no one other than the extreme ufology fringe seems to expect will be space aliens anymore, the offramp for Congress’s infatuation with UFOs is the same one that we’ve seen over and over again, realizing that the story of UFOs is one of natural phenomena, floating debris, balloons, and drones. It’s bizarre to me that nobody in the Air Force monitors such things, but that is beyond my concern. For our purposes, it’s worth noting that all the way back in 1947, the first government investigation of UFO sightings found hoaxes, misunderstood natural phenomena, balloons, and model aircraft (i.e., “drones” in today’s parlance), and nothing has changed, not even the need for each generation to relearn the same lesson.
