US navy is finally going after aliens

I thought this recent story in the Washington Post about the US Navy announcing plans to investigate and document reports of unidentified flying objects from its pilots (UFOs) was somewhat hard to believe. Can anyone take stories of aliens seriously in today's world?

For the US Navy it apparently is serious business, but the disappointing part is that we might never know if any little green or purple man made contact with the world because all such information will be kept classified.

Also, UFOs could mean anything - a drone or any mad scientist experimenting with a flying craft. It does not definitely mean kindly beings from Jupiter trying to find out why we fry things in this strange liquid called “oil” before we eating them. Any hazard to aircraft has to be investigated and the information kept secret.

Washington Post reported Joe Gradisher, a spokesman for the office of the Deputy Chief of Naval operations for Information warfare, as saying that military safety organisations retain information on of hazards to aviation as privileged information “in order to preserve the free and honest prioritization and discussion of safety among aircrew.”

There's actually serious money being spent on UFO investigations in the past.  In 2017, Pentagon's US secret office is believed to have spent $22 million over five years to study strange and threatening aeronautical events as part of a project called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). It ended in 2012, but we hear the programme did not stop.

Stop that thought - 22 million dollars!!!!!!!

Aliens? UFOs? And that kind of money? Someone sure has been reading a lot of comic books
