A FORMER military official is joining the ranks of those calling for deeper investigations into the "disturbing" UFO sightings detailed in the Pentagon's report.
Nick Pope, a former official at the Ministry of Defence, told The Sun that the report's leaked conclusions are "intriguing and disturbing".
He also called for the US and Britain to look into the possibility that the UFO sightings could be attributable to hypersonic technology testing by China and Russia, and to "assess the current level of technology these nations possess when it comes to aircraft, missiles, and drones."
Intelligence officials briefed on the Pentagon report said that they have found “no evidence” that the flying objects are alien spacecraft, but their source remains unknown.
A classified version of the highly-anticipated Pentagon report was made available to senior administration officials on Thursday.
A declassified version is expected to be released to Congress by June 25, which is expected to contain everything the US Government knows about UAPs, The Washington Post reports.
