BUREAUCRATS in the US who have ignored evidence of UFOs must face a “reckoning”, a former British defense official has said.
Former UK Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson a soon to be published report must give clear explanations for encounters.
His comments come and ex-Pentagon investigator Luis Elizondo said the failure to identify the UFOs flying over the US could the country’s biggest intelligence failure since 9/11.
Pope said the report, from the Pentagon, and U.S intelligence agencies could highlight "a potential catastrophic failure of intelligence".
"If it happened because skeptical bureaucrats were just saying to themselves, 'It can't be, therefore it isn't,' then there must be a reckoning," Pope told Carlson on Friday.
Pope worked as a civil servant for more than two decades and investigated reported UFO sightings for part of that time.
"Every day, it seems like new information drops, things that the public and the media weren't told," he said.
For example he pointed to information the former Trump administration Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe “just threw into the conversation the other day”.
He said “satellite imagery of all of this and some of the speeds being reported seem to blow the theory about foreign drones out of the water”.
Pope said there is now a large amount of data from pilots, radar operators, satellite data, measurement and signature intelligence," he said.
"There's such a lot of information now, so much that the U.S. Navy has instructions for its pilots on what to do if they encounter these things.
"Now, I think as we go into May, the run-up to this report going to Congress, there's going to be a lot of things going on behind the scenes, a lot of politicking.
“I anticipate more leaks of information, photos, videos, documents. There's a lot more to come here."
Elizondo, who headed up the secretive Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), told The US Sun strange "provocations" reported in a slew of footage by the US military are real.
He was this week identified by former US Senate majority leader Harry Reid as the leader of AATIP despite denials from the Pentagon.
Elizondo was speaking after a host of new UFO footage was confirmed by the Department of Defense.
While he cannot discuss much of his work as it remains "classified", he said he has seen "very very compelling" data which convinced him of the existence of these strange objects seemingly menacing the US.
