A former CIA director admitted in a YouTube interview that he became more open to the idea of paranormal activity after an incident involving a friend “he respects.”
“There have been over the years now events of one kind or another, usually involving some kind of air-craft airframe,” former intelligence chief R. James Woolsey told the Black Vault channel.
“I never thought there was anything to all this, it always seemed pretty far-out of me. But there was one case in which a friend of a mine was able to have his aircraft stop at 40,000 feet or so and not continue operating as a normal aircraft.”
“What was going on? I don’t know. Does anybody know?”
Woolsey, who was the CIA’s director between 1993 and 1995, is the latest intelligence official to acknowledge the possibility of alien existence.
Ex-CIA director John Brennan who served between 2013 and 2017 had revealed seeing “quite eyebrow-raising” footage while in office.
“I think it’s a bit presumptuous and arrogant for us to believe there is no other form of life anywhere in the entire universe,” he said.
Former Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe added that “there are a lot more sightings than have been made public.”
“Some of those have been declassified, and when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engages in actions that are difficult to explain.”
He continued: “Movements that are hard to replicate that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
Ratcliffe said that the Pentagon is expected to release a report on UFO sightings on June 1.
