Pentagon Finds No Evidence of US Involvement in Alien Tech

AARO "has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology, or objects that defy the known laws of physics."


In an era where the unknown reaches of space continue to intrigue and the concept of extraterrestrial life captivates the imagination, the Pentagon’s latest findings offer a grounded perspective. Amidst swirling rumors and conspiracy theories of secret U.S. endeavors to harness alien technology, a detailed 60-page report emerged on March 8th, decisively negating such claims. Has the veil finally been lifted on the United States’ encounters with unidentified flying objects (UFOs), now officially termed as unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAPs), and the alleged reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial technology? The Pentagon’s latest release, a comprehensive report spanning over 60 pages, addresses these questions head-on, challenging the fabric of popular conspiracy narratives.

Findings from the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO)

Prompted by a Congressional mandate, the Department of Defense was tasked with compiling and submitting a detailed record of the U.S. government’s historical engagement with UAPs. This initiative aimed at enhancing transparency and shedding light on a topic shrouded in mystery and speculation. The Defense Department’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) spearheaded the investigation, meticulously examining records of government probes, academic inquiries, and official reviews dating back to 1945. Contrary to the swirling rumors of extraterrestrial contact, AARO’s findings were unequivocal: there is no evidence to suggest that any observed UAP represented alien technology.


Most sightings, according to the report, could be attributed to ordinary objects and phenomena, a result of misidentification rather than evidence of otherworldly visitors. Furthermore, the claim that the U.S. government and private entities have engaged in the reverse-engineering of alien technology was also debunked. Such assertions, AARO suggests, stem from circular reporting among individuals convinced of their veracity, despite a stark lack of empirical evidence.

Insights from Sean Kirkpatrick and AARO’s Comprehensive Review

In crafting this pivotal report, AARO undertook an exhaustive review process, delving into decades of U.S. investigative efforts, analyzing archives, conducting interviews, and collaborating with intelligence and defense officials overseeing sensitive programs. Sean Kirkpatrick, AARO’s erstwhile leader, emphasized to lawmakers the absence of credible evidence pointing to extraterrestrial activity or technology that contravenes the laws of physics.

AARO “has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology, or objects that defy the known laws of physics,” Kirkpatrick said.


The Pentagon’s recent report serves as a clarion call for rational discourse on the subject of UAPs and possible extraterrestrial technology. The fascination with the unknown and the prospect of visitors from other worlds will surely continue, and rightly so. Yet, this detailed investigation offers a solid, evidence-based viewpoint, anchored in thorough and scientific analysis. And as the world gazes upward, seeking answers in the vast expanse of space, it is essential to approach these mysteries with a balance of curiosity and skepticism. However, in my view, curiosity should take precedence. Without curiosity, the path forward becomes not only challenging but also lacks intrigue.
