A UFO Task Force Has Been Formed by the U.S. Government

The United States Department of Defense has announced the formation of the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG), which, in some ways, is the U.S.’ very own UFO task force.

As reported by New York Post, the DoD announced this new group earlier this week and confirmed it would be a successor to the U.S. Navy’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force.

The AOIMSG will “synchronize efforts across the Department and the broader U.S. government to detect, identify and attribute objects of interests in Special Use Airspace (SUA), and to assess and mitigate any associated threats to safety of flight and national security.”

One of the main goals of the AOIMSG is to “address the challenges associated with assessing UAP occurring on or near DOD training ranges and installations highlighted in the DNI preliminary assessment report submitted to Congress in June 2021.”

This report was the long-awaited one on UAP that detailed the government’s official stance on these mysterious flying objects that have been seen over our skies. It analyzed 144 reports of UAP between 2004 and 2021, but the government determined that any official explanation for what these UAP are is “largely inconclusive.”

The report did say there were 18 incidents in 21 reports that were said to have unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics, but there was no determination one way or another as to whether these were alien in origin or from our planet.
