John Ratcliffe On UFO’s: “There Are Actually Quite A Few More Than Have Been Made Public”

In a recent interview with Maria Bartiromo, Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe has made some comments about the UFO phenomenon.


Do you believe in UFOs?

I do, and I believe that at least some of them are interplanetary, and that the rest are black projects that the intelligence community doesn’t even know about.

Whatever they may be, there are far too many sightings from really credible witnesses like fighter pilots, astronauts, naval personnel, and commercial airline pilots, for this whole thing to be fake.

Something is going on, and a lot of people think the government has been covering it up for years.

Other people think that this whole thing is a distraction from other issues, but why can’t both be true?

People forget that they can be distracted with very real things, just because something is being used as a distraction does not mean it isn’t real.

People also forget that there have been UFO accounts throughout history, before the U.S. even existed, and before industrial electricity even existed.

Those sightings can’t be Lockheed Skunk Works, or other deep black projects.

So what is really going on here?

Take a look:

The Washington Examiner had more on the story: 

A former top intelligence official raised expectations on Friday for a forthcoming U.S. government disclosure on what it knows about UFOs.

John Ratcliffe, who served as director of national intelligence under former President Donald Trump, was asked on Fox News by host Maria Bartiromo what he knows about unidentified flying objects that have captured people's imaginations for generations.

"There are a lot more sightings than have been made public," Ratcliffe said. "Some of those have been declassified. And when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain. Movements that are hard to replicate that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom."

After saying that there have been sightings all around the world, Ratcliffe insisted that reports of "unidentified aerial phenomena" already in the public eye are only part of the bigger picture.

Fox 59, a Fox News affiliate, reported: 

In April 2020, the Pentagon officially released three short videos showing “unidentified aerial phenomena.” This came months after the U.S. Navy acknowledged that those videos appearing to show UFOs flying through the air are legitimate.

“When we’re talking about sightings, we’re talking about objects that have been seen by Navy or Air Force pilots that have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain,” Ratcliffe said. “Movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for, or traveling at speeds that, you know, that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”

Ratcliffe says they wanted to declassify the report during his time, but they were unable to get all of the information ready.
