Pentagon Forms New Group to Investigate UFOs

The Pentagon announced that it created a new group specifically to investigate reports of UFOs.

The Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group will examine reports of Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP) — the military term for UFOs — near U.S. military facilities.

Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks said that unidentified aerial phenomena in special-use areas “represents a safety of flight risk to aircrews and raises potential national security concerns.”

The new organization will work in line with other federal agencies “to detect, identify and attribute objects of interest in Special Use Airspace (SUA), and to assess and mitigate any associated threats to safety of flight and national security,” Hicks’s memo read.

The announcement follows last summer’s report from the U.S. intelligence committee that provided the first unclassified assessment of UAP. The report included 143 unexplained incidents.

Pentagon calls China’s weapons test ‘very concerning’

China recently tested a hypersonic weapon system as part of its aggressive advancement in space and military technologies, a move that a top Pentagon official calls “very concerning.”

“What we saw was a very significant event of a test of a hypersonic weapon system, and it is very concerning,” said Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Milley said classified information prevented him from expanding on the details. He said the US is also working on hypersonic weapons.

“I think I saw in some of the newspapers, they used the term Sputnik moment,” Milley said. “I don’t know if it’s quite a Sputnik moment, but I think it’s very close to that. So it’s a very significant technological event that occurred, or test that occurred, by the Chinese. And it has all of our attention.”

The Soviet Union stunned the world with their launching of a Sputnick satellite in 1957. The move sparked fear that the US was falling behind technologically.

China refuted reports about its test, saying it was testing technology for a reusable space vehicle for peaceful purposes.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Milley’s comments conveyed concern regarding China’s military advancements.

“They continue to pursue capabilities that increase tensions in the region,” Psaki said. “And we continue to have concerns about that. And I think that was reflected in his comments.”

Pentagon official resigns, calls US’s cybersecurity ‘kindergarten level’ compared to China

A senior Pentagon official said he resigned over the stark difference between US’s and China’s AI capabilities.

Nicolas Chaillan, a former cybersecurity official, quit on Sep. 2. He told the Financial Times that China’s AI had far surpassed that of the US.

“We have no competing fighting chance against China in fifteen to twenty years. Right now, it’s already a done deal; it is already over in my opinion,” Chaillan said.

The Air Force veteran went on to say that some of the government departments’ cybersecurity defenses were at “kindergarten level.”

Recently, there have been several hacking attempts and ransomware attacks, notably the SolarWinds hack in April 2020. Cybercriminals gained access to the digital activities and emails of US Treasury, Department of Homeland Security, State Department, and Department of Defense employees.

Chaillan told the FT that he planned to give Congressional testimony over the threat posed by China.

Pentagon officials say national security at risk

Top Pentagon officials, including Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, warn that a default on the national debt would threaten national security and harm military members and families.

“If the United States defaults, it would undermine the economic strength on which our national security rests,” Austin said. “It would also seriously harm our service members and their families because, as Secretary, I would have no authority or ability to ensure that our service members, civilians, or contractors would be paid in full or on time.”

Six former Defense secretaries sent a separate letter to Congress on Wednesday echoing the same concerns. The group implored legislators “to work together to raise the statutory debt limit and avoid catastrophic consequences for the Defense Department, our military families, and our position of leadership in the world.”

In July, the US reached its borrowing limit, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that leadership must raise the debt ceiling by Oct. 18 or risk a historic, catastrophic default.

Austin outlined what’s at stake in the event Congress fails to act, including the benefits “earned by and owed to 2.4 million military retirees and 400,000 survivors.”

The group of six former Pengaton chiefs says if the US fails to pay its millions of service members, “we will not have a highly capable military to fight and win the nation’s wars.”

Europe marks 1 million deceased due to COVID-19

What’s up, Americans?

Europe reaches over one million fatalities due to COVID-19 after more than a year of the pandemic. The toll was a combined data from the continent’s 52 nations. Could there be anything uglier than this?

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused another catastrophe in the movie industry. This time, Arclight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres will permanently shut down. Hollywood celebrities and moviegoers across the nation are saddened.

Pentagon scientists have created a microchip that can detect COVID-19 virus inside the body! Further, they also built a filter that could remove the virus from the infected person via blood extraction. Please produce billions of this awesome invention!

Domino’s can now deliver your pizza order through their delivery robot. Yes, Houston residents can now receive their orders from Nuro R-2 robots that would drive their pizza to their doorsteps! Don’t forget to give them a tip.

In light of another fatal police shooting in Minneapolis, the NBA has suspended the game of Minnesota Timberwolves and Brooklyn Nets on Monday night. The baseball game against the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox was also canceled earlier the same day. Prayers up for the city!

The ‘Matrix’ film series actress Carrie-Anne Moss revealed that she was offered a ‘grandmother’ role just a day after her 40th birthday. Over time, she said that she has been treated differently. Aging is quite challenging, indeed.

Please take care,
