The Pentagon has not yet recovered debris from the three UFOs shot down over Alaska, Canada and Michigan this weekend, and has not yet issued any explanation as to what they are, how they were able to fly, or whether they posed a real threat. To America.
Since Friday, US fighter jets have shot down three objects flying over Alaska, Canada and Michigan.
On Monday morning, John Kirby, the communications coordinator for the National Security Council, revealed that the US has yet to recover the wreckage of the plane.
Former NORAD commander Scott Clancy told CNN he would be “very suspicious.”
“This is just conjecture, I think you see the confluence of distinctive activities from our adversaries to test our systems,” he said.
He went on to explain how “old” NORAD’s systems are, and how the sheer number of UFOs showed it was a “coordinated effort.”
“It seems to be a collaborative effort because you have more than one. It looks like a coordinated effort.’
Earlier, John Kirby admitted that the US has not yet recovered the rubble.

“The truth is that weather conditions prevented us from accessing the objects shot down on Friday, Saturday and yesterday. The third was shot down over Lake Huron yesterday, so it’s underwater.
“We’re going to do everything we can to get them back,” he said MSNBC.
Kirby insisted the balloons could be “benign” and tried to assure Americans, “There may be completely explainable reasons why these objects are flying all over there.”
“There are corporate entities that do things like this, but we just don’t know if once we can get to the rubble, we’ll share what we can. It doesn’t have to be malicious.’
His assurances fall on deaf ears as a growing number of Republicans and Americans demand answers.
Pentagon officials held a press conference in the middle of the Super Bowl on Sunday night when the majority of the country was distracted, where they left many questions unanswered.

General Glen VanHerck was specifically asked if it is possible that the objects point to extraterrestrial life.
“I’ll let intelligence and counterintelligence find out. I have not ruled out anything.
“At this point, we continue to assess any threat or potential threat, unknown, that approaches North America in an effort to identify it,” he said.
He said once the object shot down on Friday was found, the US would send crews to recover it.
“We are now actively searching for those objects. I have a P-8 from the Navy, which monitors there and also with helicopters. Once we find that object, we’ll put an arctic security suite in there and start the analysis to recovery, but we don’t have that right now,” he said.
But that recovery had yet to begin on Monday morning.
He added that it was the first time the US had had to shoot down a plane in NORAD’s 65-year history.
“I believe this is the first time in United States or American airspace that NORAD or United States Northern Command has taken kinetic action against an object in the air.”
Since February 4, US fighter jets have shot down four targets, including the Chinese spy balloon. Unlike the balloon, there are no images of the other three objects, which flew at significantly lower altitudes and which remain a mystery.
Among those demanding answers are Matt Rosendale and Jack Bergman who say Americans deserve better
Timeline of recent UFO sightings over US skies
Wednesday February 1: Chinese balloon is spotted over Montana (not a UFO as the Air Force identified it as a balloon)
Saturday February 4: Chinese balloon is shot down off the coast of South Carolina after drifting across the country
Thursday, February 9: First UFO is detected off the coast of Northern Alaska
Friday February 10: UFO is shot down over Deadhorse, Alaska
Saturday, February 11: Second UFO is shot down over Mayo, Yukon, Canada.

Sunday February 12: Third UFO is detected over the Great Lakes and shot down
Curiosity – and concern – was also sparked by the descriptions of the objects of the pilots they shot down.
Some of those pilots said the craft could somehow interfere with their radar sensors, a worrying detail that has raised separate questions about whether the US will be able to continue shooting down any others that may appear.
They also reported to officials that they could not detect how the objects could remain in the air because there was no propulsion.
ABC News also cites knowledgeable officials who said the pilots described them as “cylindrical and silver-gray.”
The three new objects were detected after NORAD adjusted the sensitivity of its radar system after the spy balloon’s arrival.
The sudden flurry of planes has sparked an onslaught of conspiracy theories.
Senator Marco Rubio raised further concerns last night by tweeting that UFOs have been flying into US airspace for “years.”
Chinese officials have also claimed that the US has flown balloons over its airspace several times since early 2022.
John Kirby, the communications coordinator of the National Security Council, emphasized this morning that this was not the case.
“Absolutely not,” he said.
Montana Senator Matt Rosendale is one of those demanding answers.
Also this morning, former Obama intelligence official Jeremy Bash said it was normal to “assume hostile intent.”
“Assume hostile intent and when in doubt, shoot it down,” he told the Today show, adding that we should know more from video obtained by the pilots and from the “closer in” of the objects on the ground.
