Former President Barack Obama confirmed it’s “true” that UFOs exist during a late night appearance, but will the public take his confession seriously, or brush it off like they did when the Pentagon admitted it?
During a Monday night appearance on “The Late Show with James Corden,” the conversation turned extraterrestrial when the former commander-in-chief was asked about aliens.
“What is true is that there is footage and records of objects in the sky that we don’t know exactly what they are, how they move, their trajectory,” he remarked. “They did not have an easily explainable pattern. So I think that people still take that seriously and try to figure out what that is.”
But the American public has largely not taken UFOs seriously, even after the government has begun acknowledging their existence. In 2019, the U.S. Navy verified the authenticity of three leaked videos of Navy pilots encountering what the military refers to as “unidentified aerial phenomena.”
The Pentagon released all three videos to the public in April of 2020 and formed the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force to investigate. Their latest undertaking is recently leaked footage from the USS Omaha of a UAP defying the laws of physics.
“I can confirm that the video was taken by Navy personnel and that the UAPTF included it in their ongoing examinations,” said Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough.
Though the recent government acknowledgment has failed to alarm the public, the upcoming information dump to Congress is likely to cause a stir. When former President Donald Trump signed the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief bill, it included a stipulation that all U.S. intelligence agencies must provide an unclassified report on their knowledge of “unidentified aerial phenomena” to congress on June 1st.
Before you break out your tinfoil hats, Obama told Corden that “the truth is that when I came into office, I asked, ‘Is there a lab somewhere where we’re keeping the alien specimens and spaceships?’ They did a little bit of research and the answer was ‘No.’”
However, he did acknowledge that “When it comes to aliens, there are some things I just can’t tell you on air.”
