“National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby told reporters Tuesday that UFOs are having a ‘real impact’ on the ability of U.S. Air Force pilots to operate.

“We wouldn’t have stood up an organisation at the Pentagon to analyse and try to collect and coordinate the way these sightings are reported if we didn’t take it seriously,” Kirby said responding to a question on unidentified aerial phenomena.

‘I mean, some of these phenomena we know have already had an impact on our training ranges for, you know, when pilots are out trying to do training in the air and they see these things, they’re not sure what they are and it can have an impact on their ability to perfect their skills. So it already had an impact here,’ Kirby said, admitting that the military does not know ‘what they are.'”

Analyst Comment: If this has been an ongoing concern in the Air Force, why raise the issue now and not years ago? This is a feeble effort to distract the population: It may even be laying the groundwork for additional psyops in the US.
