UFO sightings at top secret US nuclear weapons sites raise fears of Pentagon report | World | New
A former senior Pentagon official has revealed that the United States has been tracking UFOs since 1950 amid a mysterious link to nuclear technology. Lue Elizondo told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that dozens of UFOs appear to have performed “some sort of reconnaissance or surveillance of our technology and nuclear weapons.” He also dismissed claims that UFOs are linked to experimental technology from a rival power, such as China or Russia.
It comes as a US government report on sightings of unidentified flying objects found no evidence of alien activity but does not rule it out.
U.S. media have been told that a review of 120 incidents concluded that U.S. technology was not involved in most cases.
Speculation over the report’s content increased among UFO enthusiasts ahead of its full release in Congress on June 25.
Mr. Elizondo noted that the recently declassified documents include eyewitness reports of US special agents and scientists “having seen UFOs over sensitive US military installations.”

Mr Carlson said: “There seems to be an anecdotal connection between these objects and nuclear reactors, nuclear warheads, nuclear submarines and warships.
“We didn’t get nuclear technology until the end of World War II.”
Mr. Elizondo explained, “There appears to be a significant increase in sightings once the United States enters the atomic age.
“It seemed like a recognition or a watch on our nuclear technology, our nuclear development – whether it was its power or its weapon system and related technology.”
Mr Carlson noted: “It doesn’t make sense. There were famines in China 70 years ago.”
The Pentagon UFO report is the product of a military task force established last year to investigate decades of unexplained aerial sightings in U.S. airspace.
In an interview with CBS last month, retired pilot Ryan Graves said his squadron of fighter jets began to see UFOs hovering over the restricted airspace off the coast of Virginia. in 2014.
He said the objects had no visible exhaust plumes and were moving at speeds that appeared to defy the limits of known technology.
Mr Graves said pilots training off the Atlantic coast had similar sightings “every day for at least a few years”.
