Former Intelligence Official: UFOs Have Capabilities The US Doesn’t

A former Intelligence Official has revealed in a recent interview that some UFOs have capabilities that countries such as the United States do not possess.


John Ratcliffe, the former US Director of National Intelligence (DNI), had previously expressed his opinion about the anomalous nature of some UFO sightings reported by the military and pilots, where advanced instrumentation makes it possible to detect the anomalous behavior of these objects. As revealed by Ratcliffe, these objects display technologies that seem to defy the very laws of physics and have capabilities that we (the US), as a superpower, do not have. In a recent interview with Fox News, Ratcliffe explained that when he was DNI, he was concerned with whether any foreign adversary had technologies that the United States did not have.

The annual report presented on January 12 says that since the last time in 2021, the number of reported sightings has almost quadrupled, from 144 to 510. This is good news, as pilots, the military, and other officials are now encouraged to report anomalous sightings. The increased number of reports also provides additional data to agencies investigating and studying the phenomenon, such as the Pentagon UFO office, the Galileo Project led by Harvard astronomer professor Avi Loeb, and others.

“We need to know what these objects are. Clearly, there are hundreds of unexplained sightings, which means these are not natural phenomena. These are not visual disturbances. They are not trash, debris, birds, or anything else; They are objects that demonstrate technologies that seem to defy the laws of physics and have capabilities that we do not have as a world power,” revealed the former official. Additionally, one of the interviewers asked Ratcliffe if, during his time in the intelligence community, he knew about the existence of alien life. “Well, um… I can’t tell you about any potential alien life, so let’s just leave it there,” Ratcliffe responded with a smile.
