(National Sentinel)Â Out of This World: More proof that we’re not alone in the universe has emerged in the form of a leaked secret Pentagon report providing details of a U.S. Navy encounter with a UFO in 2004.
As reported by the UK’sÂ Daily Mail, the report doesn’t bear the name of any particular agency logo or date. However, four officials confirmed that it was produced in 2009 as part of a Defense Department program with many agencies contributing to it.
Exclusively reported by Las Vegas-basedÂ KLAS, the station’s investigative news team obtained the report during a visit to Washington, D.C., for a briefing arranged by former Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.
The report contains stunning first-hand accounts of contacts between U.S. Navy F/A-18 pilots flying from the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier over a two-week period of time in November 2004.
As we reported in March, video of one encounter surfaced earlier this year, with pilots expressing obvious amazement at a “tic-tac” shaped object that could travel at “ballistic missile” speeds and then stop to hover.
Watch it here:
However, since that initial release, the Pentagon has been mum regarding additional information regarding the contacts,Â KLAS reported, adding:
Over a two-week period in late 2004, an unknown, 45-foot long Tic Tac shaped object played cat and mouse with the U.S. Navy off the coast of California. The mighty U.S.S. Nimitz aircraft carrier, and its support ships including the U.S.S. Princeton, carrying the most sophisticated sensor systems in the world, repeatedly detected recurring glimpses of the Tic Tac but were unable to lock on.
OnÂ Nov.14, F-18s were ordered into the area and saw it up close. Veteran pilot DaveÂ Fravor, commander of the elite Black Aces unit, says the Tic Tac reacted to the presence of the F-18s then took off like a bullet fired from a gun.
“It takes off like nothing I’ve ever seen. One minute it’s here, and off,Â it’s gone,” said retired Navy pilot DavidÂ Fravor.
In the explosion of media interest that followed the Pentagon’s release of the Tic Tac video along with recordings of two other encounters, Commander Fravor expressed the opinion that the technology was far more advanced than anything known on earth.
But in the months since the release, the Pentagon has clammed up. It has declined to release official documents about the Nimitz Tic Tac encounter, or similar incidents.
“There are many many Nimitz incidences that are equally compelling, that are told from the eyes of people like Commander DaveÂ Fravor,” said LuisÂ Elizondo, former Pentagon intelligence officer.
Elizondo ran AATIP until last year, a secret Pentagon program that evaluated UFOÂ incident reports behind the scenes.
He brushes aside so-called ‘armchair experts’ who say the tic tac object was a balloon or bird, a pilot error or some other technical glitch.
“Let the data speak for itself,” he said. “Let the information we receive from electro-optical data; electromechanical mechanisms be the tool in which we look and compare what the eyewitness testimony is saying.”
Elizondo is not authorized to release any information about the program he ran, butÂ KLASÂ obtained some nevertheless, the station reported.
The 2009 analysis confirmed that the Nimitz battle group had multiple encounters with AAV’s, or Anomalous Aerial Vehicles.
“The report lists the advanced sensors involved at the time, AN/SPY, capable of tracking a golf ball at 100 miles, the E-2CÂ HawkeyeÂ Airborne Early Warning aircraft, as well as shipboard radars and sensors on multiple F-18s which interacted with the Tic Tac, and with something else,”Â KLAS reported.
The F/A-18 pilots reported to ship commanders that they saw a large disturbance justÂ under the surface of the ocean that was round and about 100 yards across. They said it looked as though the tic tac was hooking up with the underwater object.
Among the key findings in the reportÂ — the AAVÂ is not something that belongs to the U.S.Â or any other nation. It was so advanced, it rendered U.S. capabilities ineffective. It showed velocities far greater than anything known to exist, and it could turn itself invisible, both to radar and the human eye. Essentially, it was undetectable, and unchallenged.
The 2009 report contained statements from seven fighter pilots from the Nimitz, as well as shipboard radar operators. But despite the evidence, the pilots faced ridicule after the encounters. The initial report was buried — not forwarded to Navy command because the AAV was not deemed a threat.
Reid, who is recovering from cancer surgery, said he hopes the Pentagon will relaunch itsÂ AATIP program now.
