Pentagon UFO Chief to Step Down This Month
UFO enthusiasts across America are shocked to hear that Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick is stepping down as the head of the Pentagon’s office, which investigates unidentified flying objects.
It comes amidst a whistleblower claim that the U.S. government is hiding evidence of aliens.
It’s Time to Step Down
Since its founding over a year ago, Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick has served as the head of the United States UFO group, All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO).
In a recent interview, Dr. Kirkpatrick said he has now decided to retire after achieving what he wanted. Previously, Kirkpatrick has postponed his own retirement to sit as the head of AARO.
All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office
AARO, centered at the U.S. Pentagon, has gained a fair amount of public and political interest over its first 18 months
However, its credibility as an organization was challenged last summer after former US intelligence officer David Charles Grusch claimed the government is hiding evidence of partially intact alien crafts. Yet, AARO seemed unaware of this information.
People Harmed in a Cover Up
According to David Grusch, who spoke on record during a congressional hearing into UFOs, he claimed government officials played a role in covering up evidence.
Grusch continued by claiming that people had unfortunately been harmed or injured during the initial cover-up.
Dr. Kirkpatrick Tried to Contact Grusch
Dr. Kirkpatrick later claimed that AARO had tried to contact Grusch on various occasions, yet the whistle-blower refused to meet with the head of the group.
However, Dr. Kirkpatrick was videoed in an off-camera meeting where he was heard saying that some of Grusch’s claims could be true.
There’s a Lot to Review
When speaking during a press conference about the claims, Dr. Kirkpatrick said, “A lot of it is still under review, and we’re putting all that together into our historical report.”
“We are investigating each and every one of [Grusch’s claims]. We’re cross-referencing those. There are some bits of information that are turning out to be things and events that really happened,” he said.
Final Task before Retirement
AARO Head, Dr Kirkpatrick, has been asked to produce a report on Grusch’s claims before retiring next month.
AARO’s current deputy, Tim Phillips, will take over the reins until a permanent replacement is found.
Gave up Retirement for AARO
Just as Dr. Kirkpatrick had decided to retire nearly two years ago, he was offered the head role at AARO.
Since then, AARO has launched a website that shares declassified information on UFOs. U.S. troops and government employees can all upload to the site and report on their own what they saw.
Alien Probes on Earth
Dr. Kirkpatrick also co-authored a paper with Harvard alien enthusiasts, Professor Avi Loeb.
The paper was later leaked online, where the pair claim that UFOs studied by AARO could be alien probes sent to Earth by a mothership positioned in the cosmos.
No Regrets from Dr. Kirkpatrick
According to the head of AARO, he didn’t give his permission for the paper to be published.
However, when speaking in an interview, Dr. Kirkpatrick claimed he didn’t regret his involvement in writing the paper.
We Need to Find Proof
In a separate interview, Dr. Kirkpatrick said, “The best thing that could come out of this job is to prove that there are aliens.”
He continued, “If we don’t prove it’s aliens, then what we’re finding is evidence of other people doing stuff in our backyard,” he said. “And that’s not good.”
The Changing of the Guard Won’t Do Anything
Popular X, formerly Twitter, account @blackvaultcom claims that changing the head of AARO won’t do anything in the long term.
“Do people really think replacing Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick as head of AARO is somehow going to affect the level of transparency on the UAP topic? The changing of the guard at AARO won’t do anything. The real secrecy stems from elsewhere. AARO just toes the line,” he wrote.
