Former Senate Majority Leader: Lockheed Martin Hiding Fragments Of Crashed UFO

Retired former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), for whom the Las Vegas airport is being renamed, says that Lockheed Martin has fragments of a crashed U.F.O.. Lockheed does not deny this.

The Defense Department refused sufficient security clearance for one of the most powerful elected leaders in the country to confirm this directly.

“I was told for decades that Lockheed had some of these retrieved materials,” he said. “And I tried to get, as I recall, a classified approval by the Pentagon to have me go look at the stuff. They would not approve that. I don’t know what all the numbers were, what kind of classification it was, but they would not give that to me.” He told me that the Pentagon had not provided a reason. I asked if that was why he’d requested sap status for aatip. He said, “Yeah, that’s why I wanted them to take a look at it. But they wouldn’t give me the clearance.” (A representative of Lockheed Martin declined to comment for this article.)

Former CIA Director John Brennan thinks there may be life on other planets too. The last Director of National Intelligence says there are “quite a few” incidents that are “difficult to explain” incidents “exceed[ing] the sound barrier without a sonic boom.” And in some cases “we don’t have good explanations” for what we’ve seen “all over the world.” Many haven’t been made public before.

In February an American Airlines pilot made UFO contact over New Mexico. It’s hardly the first UFO sighting by commercial airline pilots,

In 1948…two pilots in an Eastern Airlines DC-3 saw a large, cigar-shaped light speed toward them at a tremendous velocity before making an impossibly abrupt turn and vanishing into a clear sky. A pilot in a second plane, and a few witnesses on the ground, gave compatible accounts. It was the first time that a U.F.O. had been observed at close range: the two pilots described seeing a row of windows as it streaked past. Project Sign investigators filed a top-secret “Estimate of the Situation” memorandum, which leaned in favor of the extraterrestrial hypothesis.

December’s Covid relief bill contained requirement for the intelligence community to produce a report within 180 days that will not be classified sharing what it knows about UFOs (a classified appendix is permitted). What does it say about where we are at that this isn’t the number one topic of discussion at dinner tables and every night on the news?

I don’t believe there are extraterrestrial beings that have visited earth, in the sense that there’s greater than 50% likelihood that this is true. However recently-declassified photos, and statements from government leaders with access to highly classified material suggesting they believe there’s something to UFOs, certainly raises my estimate that this is true from negligible to non-negligible.

It’s possible that there aren’t beings from outer space, that if there are we’ll never find them, that they’ve probed us and are avoiding contact (prime directive?) or even that it’s actually future human societies traveling back in time (or else, why be so interested in earth over everything else that’s out there?). Or just that over time that we’ve been watching, with so many people in the world and so much time, eventually we see outlier phenomenon we can’t explain and it’s just… phenomenon we can’t explain. And just because we can’t explain it doesn’t make it alien.

  1. I’m going to wait and see what is disclosed by the U.S. government. I honestly don’t know what’s going on and I suspect no one else does either.

  2. I’m pretty confident saying there is little if any chance there are little green men or advanced civilizations beyond earth. I think they (the gov’t as a whole) are fighting to keep their stupidity hidden. Sure there are “unidentified” and “unexplained” things that occur in our world everyday. They just don’t involve extraterrestrials…..

  3. Unlikely there are “beings” aboard these objects. Maybe a remote possibility they are programmed “drones” launched from a distant planet millions of years ago. Not exactly a “Hello Neighbor” situation.

  4. @Gary Leff: As the sagacious thought leader in travel, I was hoping you would further postulate about UFO intergalactic travel and if outer-space aliens should, before travel, sign an agreement with American Airlines so they would accrue valuable AAdvantage Miles redeemable for oneworld flights. Inquiring minds also want to know if these space aliens will be required to obtain an FDA-approved NAAT test, processed by a CLIA-certified laboratory and approved by the state of Hawai‘i to avoid the 10-day quarantine when visiting Maui to experience enjoying a Mai Tai on the beach while they maintain proper social distancing.

  5. Who knows…unless you have seen something for sure, I don’t know how people can say they are “pretty confident” one way or another except people who think they have all the answers to everything anyway.

    One question I have though is this: Two characteristics seem to always be associated with these stories: (a)They are secretive and (b) They have superior technology. So my only question is given this, why be (a) if you have (b)?

    I’m less inclined to believe any stories about other live forms out there until I see it, but just because I haven’t seen it doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

  6. It’s crap. To believe the extraterrestrial theory is to believe in the world’s stupidest aliens who always show up the the least populated, more remote parts of the planet and that that’s all they ever do. Which if you are an extra terrestrial looking to study the Earth is exactly what you don’t want to be doing. You want to go to where the activity is to observe it not go where there’s not much going on.

  7. In sci-fi movies the visitors always direct us to take them to our leader. Boy are they in for a surprise.

  8. Why Lockheed Martin? And not the federal government???

    If true, this is another example of military industrial complex running the government!

  9. Reid…Brennen…really? They’re more senile than the potted plant in the oval office at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

  10. And, what about the Roswell crash in 1946? Any of this related? Last anyone heard,
    the remains of that “alien” craft were sent to Wright Patterson AFB long ago.

    On a more personal note, yes, I do believe there are other more intelligent life forms in the universe.
    Why not? It’s a huge universe and it would be a Divine shame to waste the universe on a few
    puny humans who haven’t yet mastered elementary space travel beyond their own planets orbit.
    Just my thoughts.

  11. What happened was for about 50 years, there was a worm hole allowing aliens to enter Earth and the solar system of 8 (formerly 9) planets. This worm hole was not stable hence an alien invasion was averted. During the time it was open, several alien ships came. At least one crashed. With the worm hole closed, aliens have to take a route that takes several thousand light years to come.

    Not confirmed was the rumor that the mission commander swore before crashing “damned cheapo government used parts made in China, they should have used the better part made in Taiwan or Germany! Zut!:”

  12. If I hadn’t seen one up close I wouldn’t believe it either.
    I think the default rational position is unbelief. That is completely rational.
    Reluctantly I previously posted my close up experience so I don’t really have anything to add.
    I am waiting to see what comes out in June, that experience has been a minor point in my life not anything I really think about on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis.
    I only reflect back now and then if there happens to be a news article, I read a news article about it.
    So we will see, we will see what comes out in June.

  13. I always thought one of the few positives to come from a Trump administration would be a leak of the government knows about aliens, if there was such info. I didn’t think he’d be able to keep that secret. Just think his place in history if he blew the lid off such a cover-up. Heck he started out by double-crossing Israeli intelligence plus sharing US secrets in the Oval with the Ruskies.

    Bottom line: never hear a thing on the topic from 45, I can only conclude there’s nothing there folks. Keep moving.

  14. @Ken A – loved it. But if they are an advanced life form, they will be too smart to signup for American Miles or even Delta Sky Pesos.

    The probable reason alien life forms have not made direct contact is that they saw there is “no intelligent life” on earth. Florida even goes as far as subtracting from the combined total intelligence of the world.

  15. NASA occasionally lets everyone sign up to have their names put on a computer chip sent on deep space and planetary missions. The last few times I’ve done this they confirmed with boarding passes and award credits. My count is up to 1.4 billion miles. Maybe the aliens are doing the same kind of thing….

    But seriously, I’m with the majority of people here that while some strange atmospheric phenomena could be going on the likelihood of real space aliens is pretty low. It’s a big universe and they are probably out there, but given the distances involved I doubt if they’re here. Having grown up on the science fiction of Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke, Heinlein, etc. (heck, I met most of those writers) I wish otherwise and will keep an open mind, but the evidence is just too thin.

  16. Isn’t “The Day The Earth Stood Still” with Michael Rennie a documentary?
