“I’m going to be honest with you. I’d love to tell everything in detail, but I’m not willing to go to jail to do it,” said a retired Navy senior chief, whose name is being withheld for fear of repercussions.
“I’m constrained because of security agreements, so they need a way for submissions to be made,” he told Fox News Digital.
Not having a secure way to report potential UFOs was a glaring oversight in the eyes of two lawmakers on both sides of the aisle after All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO)’s April 19 UFO hearing in front of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities.
AARO is an office within the US Office of the Secretary of Defense that investigates UAPs – unidentified anomalous phenomena – which is the government-created word for UFOs.
Head of the agency, Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, showed the second-along video clips (seen above) to lawmakers and said, “This is essentially all the data we have of this event.”
“It’s going to be virtually impossible to fully identify that, just based off that video,” he said, so it’s considered an “unresolved case.”
The retired Navy senior said that he and other military service members saw a similar metallic orb from an airborne platform in Afghanistan in the early 2000s.
