It turns out that when you are the head honcho for the Pentagon in charge of UFOs, you cannot actually say there are possibly aliens.
I give you the case of Sean Kirkpatrick, head of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO).
Kirkpatrick made a comment that several sightings referred to the Pentagon were either objects from foreign powers or aliens, and he would prefer the latter.
On Sunday, reports surfaced that Kirkpatrick will now be stepping down.
Can’t Say That
Kirkpatrick has reportedly investigated more than 800 possible UFO sightings since taking on his role at AARO.
During a recent interview, he stated, “If we don’t prove it’s aliens, then what we’re finding is evidence of other people doing stuff in our backyard.
“And that’s not good.”
This was more or less Kirkpatrick’s dream job, getting paid to do something that he would probably do for free.
In fact, he delayed his retirement to take this position, a retirement that will likely be spent trying to find hard evidence that extraterrestrials do exist.
Kirkpatrick has only worked for the Biden administration for about 18 months, with the AARO being established just last year.
His office gained national headlines when it was tasked with investigating the Chinese surveillance balloons that were popping up, then falling to the earth after fighter jets were sent up in the skies to dispense of them.
Kirkpatrick also made headlines when he ripped whistleblower David Charles Grusch for saying that the government had been hiding evidence of alien spaceships for decades.
To this point, Kirkpatrick says there is no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity” or “off-world technology.”
Upon news of his resignation, the DoD stated, “His commitment to transparency with the United States Congress and the American public on UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) leaves a legacy the department will carry forward as AARO continues its mission.
“Our department is stronger and better prepared for future scientific and national security challenges because of Sean’s distinguished service to our country.”
The office will now be led by Tim Phillips until a new chief is named. Phillips is currently serving as Kirkpatrick’s deputy.
