The Pentagon has been accused of hiding UFO information after the ‘historic’ report on extraterrestrial activity has the ‘top-secret’ section left out of the released version.
Following the release of the nine-page document on Friday, the report is believed to be not as comprehensive as the one sent to Congress, according to a former Pentagon employee.
Luis Elizondo, former director of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) program to study UFOs, hailed the report as a huge step but suggested the government is not revealing everything they know.
During an interview on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show, Luis said: “This is a historic moment for us, in our country and our military.”
He added: “The government has formally and officially come out and informed Congress that these things are – A, they’re real – and two, that they’re not ours and that they seem to be performing, at least some of them … in remarkable ways.”
In the version released to the public, the military noted a total of 144 UFO sightings predominantly occurring in 2019, which couldn’t be verified by any terrestrial explanation.
Pentagon refers to these sighted as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) but Luis claims the majority of sightings are not reported by the military so this is just a small number in comparison to sightings made by the public.
Speaking in the same Fox News Interview, Luis continued: “A large majority of reporting goes unreported.

“Why? The stigma and taboo… involving this topic, so one can surmise there's actually a lot more than just 144 incidents involving the Navy and just the last year-and-a-half.”
The report provided no conclusions that any of the sightings were not extraterrestrial and did highlight the US has insufficient data to help identify a UAP.

According to the report, the sensors mounted on US military defense aircrafts "are typically designed to fulfil specific missions" but are ill-equipped in "identifying UAP”.
When objects in the sky are eventually identified, they are categorized as items such as "airborne clutter" or even "foreign adversary systems."
