Former President Barack Obama seems to be intrigued by the idea of unidentified flying objects. In an interview published Thursday, he “absolutely” wants to learn more about the footage allegedly showing UFOs from the Navy.
Obama was in the middle of a question-answer session with New York Times journalist Ezra Klein, who is the anchor of “The Ezra Klein Show” podcast. Klein mentioned the recent UFO sightings of the Navy that were leaked by filmmaker Jeremey Corbell.
Upon Klein’s probe, Obama referred to the UFO footage as something that is “interesting,” but lacks the power to “change my politics at all.” He later clarified saying his “politics” is based on the simple assumption that humans are just a small living being, “floating in the middle of space.”
The former president went on to explain how the concept of aliens may be a unifying force for humans. According to him, each individual on this planet is different and these differences are the real reason for the divide between us. These differences are “profound,” and have ultimately caused tragedy and loss, said Obama.
However, all humans are just filled with a plethora of doubts and uncertainties and yet, the aim is to do the best we can by “treating each other better, because we’re all we got,” concluded Obama. He also added how this news of UFOs and potential men in green suits can be a symbol of hope for people to consider what “we have in common is a little more important.”
Corbell, the filmmaker who released the UFO sightings footage to the media was found telling Fox News’ “America Reports” that the Pentagon has confirmed the videos showing UFOs circling the Navy ships as “authentic Navy footage.” The videos were leaked in advance of the Pentagon report that was anticipated to release soon, Corbell said.
The news of the Pentagon report on the prevalence of UFOs has been doing the rounds for a while. A portion of funds was allocated in the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief plan, signed by former President Donald Trump in December. The much sought-after Pentagon report is expected to include a detailed analysis of data and other details about UFOs, collected by the Office of Naval Intelligence and the FBI.
Time and time again, Sen. Mark Rubio has stressed the importance of this report and its findings. In an interview with CBS News “60 Minutes” last month, Rubio said the U.S should start taking the news of these UFO sightings more “seriously.” John Ratcliffe, who served as the director of national intelligence in the Trump era gave a few snippets of the government’s report in an interview held in March.
“There are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” Ratcliffe said in a conversation with Fox News. These sightings are not only objects seen by Air force pilots but also the observations picked up by the satellite imagery. Moreover, Lue Elizondo, a former Pentagon official, told the Post about how he has seen multiple videos of UFOs.
