Former U.S. President Barack Obama said that there are images in the classified archives of military photographs, which show the so-called flying saucers. He said this on Tuesday, May 18, during a program with James Corden, reports CNN.
According to the former U.S. president, the principle of flight of such objects defies explanation.
Obama also said that when he first arrived at the White House, his first question concerned the availability of special repositories with alien ships and evidence of extraterrestrial civilizations, to which he was given a negative answer.
However, he noted that the U.S. does have footage of celestial objects, the definition of which is very difficult.
Earlier, on April 6, former CIA chief Jace Woolsey said that he does not exclude the existence of unidentified flying objects. He also shared a story when the plane of his friend stopped at a height of more than 12 thousand feet and then the device stopped behaving “like a normal plane”.
In the middle of August last year, the US Department of Defense confirmed the creation of a working group for the study of UFOs. According to the statement, it will study the nature of the origin of UFOs, as well as their detection, analysis and cataloguing of objects that could potentially pose a threat to the national security of the United States.
In late April, the U.S. Department of Defense published three unclassified videos on its website showing “unidentified phenomena.” One of the videos was filmed in November 2004 and the other two in January 2015. They appeared on the Internet in 2007 and 2017 without permission from the U.S. military department.
