Does Barack Obama Believe in UFOs?

Barack Obama has confirmed the existence of UFOs with greater maneuverability and speed than anything in the US military exist – and say they must be taken seriously.

Speaking on The Late Late Show with James Cordon Monday night, Obama said he had viewed footage of UFOs harassing US military targets which had gone viral recently.

‘What is true… is that there’s footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are.

‘We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory… they did not have an easily explainable pattern,’ he said.

‘So I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is. But I have nothing to report to you today.’

Obama revealed he had been curious about the US Government’s research programs into alien lifeforms when he was elected President in 2008.

The 44th President laughed off rumors of a Roswell-style secret lab where alien specimens were kept.

He teased host James Cordon that he knew more than he was letting on.

‘When it comes to aliens, there are some things I just can’t tell you on air,’ Obama said.

‘Look, the truth is that when I came into office I asked. I was like, ‘All right, is there the lab somewhere where we’re keeping the alien specimens and spaceships?’

‘They did a little bit of research…. and the answer was ‘No,” he quipped.

Obama’s comments came days after a video was released appearing to show a UFO buzz a US stealth ship near San Diego before diving under the water back in July 2019.

Former US Navy Lieutenant Ryan Graves, who flew an F/A-18 fighter off the Virginia coast between 2015 and 2017, said his fighter squadron spotted the ‘maneuverable’ spherical objects flying in restricted airspace near Virginia Beach almost every day from 2015 to 2017.

‘I am worried, frankly. You know, if these were tactical jets from another country that were hanging out up there, it would be a massive issue,’ Graves told 60 Minutes.

‘But because it looks slightly different, we’re not willing to actually look at the problem in the face. We’re happy to just ignore the fact that these are out there, watching us every day.’

On his Fox News show on Monday, Tucker Carlson said the US military was not dealing with the ‘clear and present threat’ of UFOs because it is too busy purging its ranks of soldiers who are not woke enough.

Carlson questioned whether the Pentagon is taking this ‘threat’ to the US’s national security seriously, accusing the likes of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin of focusing on diversity and inclusion initiatives and ‘the weather’ instead of investigating UFOs.

He fumed the military is too busy ‘hiring more pregnant air force pilots’ and being ‘obsessed with political purity’ to defend America from potential adversaries.

Carlson pointed to the US Army’s new recruitment ad which features an LGBTQ+ protest as well as the recent ousting of Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier from the Space Force over his comments branding its diversity programs ‘Marxist’.

‘This is your country, please defend it. It is becoming clear they have no interest in defending it,’ said Carlson.

He said the fact the Pentagon – and now Obama – had admitted not knowing where the footage came from was a ‘very big problem.’

‘Oh, UFOs, they’re spooky and kinda funny. Crazy people believe in them. Up until you get to the line, ‘The Pentagon admits it doesn’t know what in the world this is.’ That’s all you need to know,’ he said.

‘From a national security perspective, that’s a very big problem. How big a problem is it?’

The Department of Defense is due to release a report into unidentified aerial phenomena sightings by military personnel next month.

Sen. Marco Rubio, who as acting head of the Senate Intelligence Committee called for Pentagon reports into the unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) to be declassified, also believes lawmakers are not taking the threat seriously enough.

‘Some of my colleagues are very interested in this topic and some kinda, you know, giggle when you bring it up,’ he told 60 Minutes.

But I don’t think we can allow the stigma to keep us from having an answer to a very fundamental question.’

Footage released last week confirmed as real by the Pentagon appeared to show a UFO buzz a United States stealth ship near San Diego before diving under the water.

Retired Navy officials have warned the technology seen is up to 1,000 years ahead of that used by the US while others have revealed they spotted unidentified objects in the skies every day during military postings.

Commenting on the video, an ex-navy officer said that the technology on display is 100 to 1000 years ahead of that possessed by the United States.

‘The technology that we witnessed with the Tic-Tac was something we would not have been able to defend our forces against at the time,’ Sean Cahil – a retired US Navy Chief Master-at-Arms – told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

‘What we saw in the Tic-Tac […] is the five observables. [These] indicate a technology that outstrips our arsenal by at least 100 to 1000 years at the moment.’

Last April, the infamous ‘Tic Tac’ incident was one of three videos released by the Pentagon which showed footage of ‘unexplained aerial phenomena’ taken by US Navy pilots.

At least six pilots encountered the mysterious object as it flew at speed over the Pacific near Mexico on November 14, 2004. The way it moved has led to speculation that it was a UFO and it has become a key piece of evidence for those who believe in extraterrestrials.
