Trotter's To Go misteriozno se zatvara

Trotter's To Go misteriozno se zatvara

Unatoč prethodnim glasinama, manji Trotter's To Go zatvoren je

Kad je Charlie Trotter najavio svoj odlazak s scene hrane u akademske krugove, nagovijestio je da će, dok se Charlie Trotter zatvori, njegova manja operacija za preuzimanje Trotter's To Go ostati otvorena. Vau!

Pa, izgleda da se ta odluka promijenila. Time Out Chicago izvještava da je manje mjesto za poneti u Chicagu zatvoreno za vikend, a Trotter je iznenadio osoblje objavivši da odmah zatvara radnju. "Dok ovo kucam, osoblje TTG -a raščišćava trgovinu i seli opremu u prostor restorana", napisao je David Tamarkin, ističući da osoblje nije imalo predznanja o zatvaranju.

Niko od osoblja se ne bi evidentirao, dok Trotterovi predstavnici nisu odgovorili na zahtjeve za komentar. U međuvremenu je web stranica To Go ugašena, a web stranica restorana Charlie Trotter odbrojava dane do 25. godišnjice 17. augusta. Čini se da će Chicago morati neko vrijeme ostati bez Trottera, kao posljednja večera Charlieja Trottera održaće se 31. avgusta.

‘Od glasina do čvrstih dokaza’: hoće li NLO -i postati mainstream?

Nick Pope proveo je ranih 1990 -ih istražujući NLO -e za britansko ministarstvo odbrane. Zarobljen u rijetko posjećenom državnom uredu - „metaforičkom podrumu“ - dobro se sjeća kako je smatrano njegovo područje rada.

"Hodao bih hodnikom i ljudi bi zviždali tematsku muziku ili na Bliske susrete treće vrste ili u Zonu sumraka", rekao je Pope za Guardian.

Pred kraj svog čarolija u MO, nova znanstveno -fantastična emisija s par lovaca na vanzemaljce iz FBI -a također je postala sve popularnija. "Sjećam se da je i zviždukla melodija teme" Dosjei X ", rekao je.

U gotovo dvije decenije od tada, stavovi prema NLO -ima polako su se mijenjali, posebno u Americi gdje je tema otišla s margina na mainstream, čak se i bivši predsjednik Barack Obama izjasnio o njihovom potencijalnom postojanju.

Vlade i entuzijasti su ih preimenovali u "UAP -ove" ili neidentificirane zračne pojave, 2021. je vjerojatno prva ozbiljna rasprava o nepoznatim letećim stvarima. U junu će Pentagon objaviti dugo očekivani izvještaj o tome šta zna o UAP -ovima, a uzbuđenje zbog tog otkrića potaknulo je mnoštvo svjedoka koji su se pojavili kako bi podijelili svoja iskustva s informativnom emisijom 60 minuta u maju.

Obama je bio među mnogim javnim ličnostima koji je dodao svoja razmišljanja o UAP -ovima i izvještaju Pentagona ovog mjeseca.

"Postoje snimci i zapisi objekata na nebu, da ne znamo tačno šta su, ne možemo objasniti kako su se kretali, njihovu putanju", rekao je Obama u intervjuu za CBS. “Nisu imali lako objašnjiv obrazac. I tako, znaš da mislim da ljudi i dalje ozbiljno shvaćaju pokušavajući istražiti i shvatiti što je to. ”

Iskrenost rasprave oko UAP -ova - "Želim da to shvatimo ozbiljno i da imamo proces da to ozbiljno shvatimo", rekao je republikanski senator Marco Rubio za 60 minuta - daleko je od podsmeha s kojim se Papa jednom suočio.

Pa šta se promijenilo u Americi?

"U posljednje tri godine on je uzdignut iznad glasina i pretvoren u čvrste dokaze", rekao je Pope, koji je sada sa sjedištem u Arizoni. "Ne samo svjedočenje vojnih pilota koji su bili uključeni u susrete s tim stvarima, već i radarski podaci i video zapisi infracrvenih kamera koje su svi vidjeli."

Posljednjih godina objavljen je niz vladinih video zapisa koji prikazuju bespilotne letelice, uključujući snimke iz mornaričkog borbenog aviona F-18 na kojem je prikazan duguljasti objekt koji leti nebom u blizini San Diega 2004. godine.

Ovog aprila fotografije i video zapisi koje je snimilo mornaričko osoblje procurili su na internet, prikazujući objekte trokutastog oblika kako zuje po nebu, a u maju su procurili vojni snimci koji pokazuju ovalni leteći objekt u blizini broda mornarice u San Diegu-očigledno žarište UAP-a.

Pripadnici mornarice viđali su UAP -ove tako često da su susreti postali uobičajeni, rekao je Ryan Graves, penzionisani mornarički pilot, za 60 minuta.

"Svaki dan", rekao je Graves. "Svaki dan barem nekoliko godina."

Za Teda Roea, koji vodi Nacionalni zrakoplovni centar za izvještavanje o anomalnim pojavama, neprofitnu organizaciju u kojoj piloti ili drugi mogu prijaviti svoja iskustva s UAP-ovima, ovo je bila samo potvrda onoga što je već znao.

"To me nimalo ne čudi", rekla je Roe. „Negdje u svijetu se to svakodnevno dešava - to se manifestuje stalno, svakodnevno. I iz mojih privatnih razgovora sa sadašnjim i bivšim vojnim letačima, osjećam da su izvještaji koje dobijem - što se tiče izvještaja pilota - očigledno vrh ledenog brijega. ”

No, uprkos očiglednom ublažavanju tabua oko UAP -ova, Roe kaže da još uvijek postoji stigma.

"Niko nije spreman riskirati svoju karijeru ili ugled po ovom pitanju, čak ni sada", rekao je Roe. “Piloti nas neće kontaktirati sve dok se ne penzionišu. Rekao bih da je skoro 50-50, slučajevi koje dobijem, koji su noviji, u odnosu na one koji su se dogodili prije mnogo godina i o kojima nisu htjeli razgovarati jer bi izgubili status leta, i jer su bili zabrinuti za svoje karijere. ”

Vlada - sve vlade - ranije nisu bile voljne čak ni priznati da nadgledaju UAP -ove.

2007. godine američko ministarstvo odbrane pokrenulo je „Napredni program identifikacije prijetnji u svemiru“ za istraživanje NLO -a. Napor je bio toliko tajnovit da je javnost postala svjesna toga tek 10 godina kasnije, nakon istrage New York Timesa.

S širenjem procurelih ili službeno objavljenih snimaka, zahtjevi javnosti i političara za transparentnošću su rasli, što je dovelo do toga da je CIA objavila hiljade dokumenata o UAP -ovima u januaru 2021.

Rubio, potpredsjednik obavještajnog odbora Senata, bio je posebno glasan i bio je dio grupe izabranih dužnosnika koji su uspjeli ugurati Zakon o odobrenju obavještajnih službi za fiskalnu godinu 2021. u potpisan zakon o potrošnji za pomoć koronavirusu u iznosu od 2,3 milijarde dolara koji je Donald Trump usvojio u decembru.

Tim je aktom vladinim agencijama naređeno da dostave "detaljnu analizu podataka i obavještajnih podataka o neidentificiranim zračnim pojavama", te "detaljan opis međuagencijskog procesa" za prijavljivanje NLO -a. Izvještaj se mora predati do 25. juna.

"Muškarci i žene kojima smo povjerili odbranu naše zemlje izvještavaju o susretima sa neidentifikovanim avionima vrhunskih sposobnosti", rekao je Rubio za Tampa Bay Times sredinom maja.

“Ne možemo dopustiti da nas stigma NLO -a spriječi da ozbiljno istražimo ovo. Predstojeći izvještaj jedan je korak u tom procesu, ali neće biti posljednji. ”

Nalet nedavnih video zapisa i skoro objavljivanje izvještaja izazvali su uzbuđenje oko neidentificiranih letećih stvari koje se godinama ne vide. Papa je, međutim, upozorio da nakon godina skrivanja obavještajnih agencija ljudi ne bi trebali očekivati ​​oslobađanje vlade sve zna za ove misteriozne objekte na nebu.

"Izvještaj mora biti neklasifikovan, ali bi mogao imati i povjerljivi dodatak, pa postoji velika mogućnost da će se u taj povjerljivi prilog nalaziti bilo kakve potresne činjenice, a ne tajni izvještaj", rekao je Papa.

Dodao je: „Dakle, ljudi bi trebali biti uzbuđeni, ali ne previše. Trebali bi biti pragmatični i malo upravljanja očekivanjima moglo bi biti korisno. ”

Posljednjih godina objavljen je niz vladinih video zapisa koji prikazuju bespilotne letelice, uključujući snimke iz mornaričkog borbenog aviona F-18 koji je prikazivao duguljasti objekt koji leti nebom u blizini San Diega 2004. godine.

Ovog aprila fotografije i video zapisi koje je snimilo mornaričko osoblje procurili su na internet, prikazujući objekte trokutastog oblika kako zuju po nebu, a u maju su procurili vojni snimci koji pokazuju ovalni leteći objekt u blizini broda mornarice u San Diegu-očigledno žarište UAP-a.

Pripadnici mornarice viđali su UAP -ove toliko često da su susreti postali uobičajeni, rekao je Ryan Graves, penzionisani mornarički pilot, za 60 minuta.

"Svaki dan", rekao je Graves. "Svaki dan barem nekoliko godina."

Za Teda Roea, koji vodi Nacionalni zrakoplovni centar za izvještavanje o anomalnim fenomenima, neprofitnu organizaciju u kojoj piloti ili drugi mogu prijaviti svoja iskustva s UAP-ovima, ovo je bila samo potvrda onoga što je već znao.

"To me nimalo ne čudi", rekla je Roe. „Negdje u svijetu se ovo svakodnevno događa - manifestuje se stalno, svakodnevno. I iz mojih privatnih razgovora sa sadašnjim i bivšim vojnim letačima, osjećam da su izvještaji koje dobijem - što se tiče izvještaja pilota - očigledno vrh ledenog brijega. ”

No, uprkos očiglednom ublažavanju tabua oko UAP -ova, Roe kaže da još uvijek postoji stigma.

"Niko nije spreman riskirati svoju karijeru ili ugled po ovom pitanju, čak ni sada", rekao je Roe. “Piloti nas neće kontaktirati sve dok se ne penzionišu. Rekao bih da je skoro 50-50, slučajevi koje dobijem, koji su noviji, u odnosu na one koji su se dogodili prije mnogo godina i o kojima nisu htjeli razgovarati jer bi izgubili status leta, i jer su bili zabrinuti za svoje karijere. ”

Vlada - sve vlade - ranije nisu bile voljne čak ni priznati da nadgledaju UAP -ove.

2007. godine američko ministarstvo odbrane pokrenulo je „Napredni program identifikacije prijetnji u svemiru“ za istraživanje NLO -a. Napor je bio toliko tajnovit da je javnost o tome obaviještena tek 10 godina kasnije, nakon istrage New York Timesa.

S širenjem procurelih ili službeno objavljenih snimaka, zahtjevi javnosti i političara za transparentnošću su rasli, što je dovelo do toga da je CIA objavila hiljade dokumenata o UAP -ovima u januaru 2021.

Rubio, potpredsjednik obavještajnog odbora Senata, bio je posebno glasan i bio je dio grupe izabranih dužnosnika koji su uspjeli ugurati Zakon o odobrenju obavještajnih službi za fiskalnu godinu 2021. u potpisan zakon o potrošnji za pomoć koronavirusu u iznosu od 2,3 milijarde dolara koji je Donald Trump usvojio u decembru.

Tim je aktom vladinim agencijama naređeno da dostave deklasificiranu “detaljnu analizu podataka i obavještajnih podataka o neidentificiranim zračnim fenomenima” i “detaljan opis međuagencijskog procesa” za prijavljivanje NLO -a. Izvještaj se mora predati do 25. juna.

"Muškarci i žene kojima smo povjerili odbranu naše zemlje izvještavaju o susretima sa neidentifikovanim avionima vrhunskih sposobnosti", rekao je Rubio za Tampa Bay Times sredinom maja.

“Ne možemo dopustiti da nas stigma NLO -a spriječi da ozbiljno istražimo ovo. Predstojeći izvještaj jedan je korak u tom procesu, ali neće biti posljednji. ”

Nalet nedavnih video zapisa i skoro objavljivanje izvještaja izazvali su uzbuđenje oko neidentificiranih letećih stvari koje se godinama ne vide. Papa je, međutim, upozorio da nakon godina škrtosti obavještajnih agencija ljudi ne bi trebali očekivati ​​oslobađanje vlade sve zna za ove misteriozne objekte na nebu.

"Izvještaj mora biti neklasifikovan, ali bi mogao imati i povjerljivi dodatak, pa postoji velika mogućnost da će se u taj povjerljivi prilog nalaziti bilo kakve potresne činjenice, a ne tajni izvještaj", rekao je Papa.

Dodao je: „Dakle, ljudi bi trebali biti uzbuđeni, ali ne previše. Trebali bi biti pragmatični i malo upravljanja očekivanjima moglo bi biti korisno. ”


‘Od glasina do čvrstih dokaza’: hoće li NLO -i postati mainstream?

Nick Pope proveo je ranih 1990 -ih istražujući NLO -e za britansko ministarstvo odbrane. Zarobljen u rijetko posjećenom državnom uredu - „metaforičkom podrumu“ - dobro se sjeća kako je smatrano njegovo područje rada.

"Hodao bih hodnikom i ljudi bi zviždali tematsku muziku ili na bliske susrete treće vrste ili u zonu sumraka", rekao je Pope za Guardian.

Pred kraj svog čarolija u MO, nova znanstveno -fantastična emisija s par lovaca na vanzemaljce iz FBI -a također je postala sve popularnija. "Sjećam se da je i zviždukla melodija teme" Dosjei X ", rekao je.

U gotovo dvije decenije od tada, stavovi prema NLO -ima polako su se mijenjali, posebno u Americi gdje je tema otišla s margina na mainstream, čak se i bivši predsjednik Barack Obama izjasnio o njihovom potencijalnom postojanju.

Vlade i entuzijasti su ih preimenovali u "UAP -ove" ili neidentificirane zračne pojave, 2021. je vjerojatno prva ozbiljna rasprava o nepoznatim letećim stvarima. U junu će Pentagon objaviti dugo očekivani izvještaj o onome što zna o UAP -ovima, a uzbuđenje zbog tog otkrića potaknulo je mnoštvo svjedoka koji su se pojavili da podijele svoja iskustva s viješću 60 minuta u maju.

Obama je bio među mnogim javnim ličnostima koji je dodao svoja razmišljanja o UAP -ovima i izvještaju Pentagona ovog mjeseca.

Barack Obama: ‘Postoje snimci i zapisi.’ Fotografija: Larry Marano/Rex/Shutterstock

"Postoje snimci i zapisi objekata na nebu, da ne znamo tačno šta su, ne možemo objasniti kako su se kretali, njihovu putanju", rekao je Obama u intervjuu za CBS. “Nisu imali lako objašnjiv obrazac. I tako, znaš da mislim da ljudi i dalje ozbiljno shvaćaju pokušavajući istražiti i shvatiti što je to. ”

Iskrenost rasprave o UAP -ovima - "Želim da to shvatimo ozbiljno i da imamo proces da to ozbiljno shvatimo", rekao je republikanski senator Marco Rubio za 60 minuta - daleko je od podsmeha s kojim se Papa jednom suočio.

Dakle, šta se promijenilo u Americi?

“In the last three years it has been elevated above just hearsay and segued into hard evidence,” said Pope, who is now based in Arizona, said. “Not just the testimony from military pilots who’ve been involved in encounters with these things, but radar data and the infra-red camera videos that everyone’s seen.”

In recent years a series of government videos showing UAPs, have been released, including footage from a navy F-18 fighter jet which showed an oblong object flying through the sky near San Diego in 2004.

This April photos and videos taken by navy personnel were leaked online, showing triangular-shaped objects buzzing around in the sky, and in May leaked military footage showed an oval flying object near a navy ship in San Diego – an apparent UAP hotspot.

Members of the navy saw UAPs so frequently that the encounters became commonplace, Ryan Graves, a retired navy pilot, told 60 Minutes.

“Every day,” Graves said. “Every day for at least a couple years.”

For Ted Roe, who runs the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, a non-profit where pilots or others can report their experiences with UAPs, this was merely confirmation of what he already knew.

“That doesn’t surprise me at all,” Roe said. “Somewhere in the world every day this is happening – it manifests steadily, daily. And from my private conversations with current and former military fliers I feel that the reports that I get – as far as pilot reports – are clearly the tip of the iceberg.”

But for all the apparent easing of taboo around UAPs, Roe says there is still a stigma.

“Nobody is willing to risk their careers or reputation on this subject, even now,” Roe said. “Pilots won’t contact us until they retire. I’d say it’s almost 50-50, the cases I get, that are more recent, versus those that happened years ago and they didn’t want to talk about because they would lose their flight status, and because they were worried about their careers.”

The government – all governments – have previously been reluctant to even acknowledge that they monitor UAPs.

In 2007 the US defense department launched an “Advanced aerospace threat identification program” to investigate UFOs. The effort was so secretive that the public was only made aware of it 10 years later, after a New York Times investigation.

As leaked or officially published footage has spread, however, demands for transparency from the public and politicians has grown, prompting the CIA to release thousands of documents on UAPs in January 2021.

Rubio, the vice-chair of the Senate intelligence committee, has been a particularly loud voice, and he was part of a group of elected officials who succeeded in thrusting the Intelligence Authorization Act for fiscal year 2021 into the $2.3tn coronavirus relief spending bill signed into law by Donald Trump in December.

That act ordered government agencies to provide a declassified “detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence”, and “a detailed description of an interagency process” for reporting UFOs. The report must be handed over by 25 June.

“Men and women we have entrusted with the defense of our country are reporting encounters with unidentified aircraft with superior capabilities,” Rubio told the Tampa Bay Times in mid-May.

“We cannot allow the stigma of UFOs to keep us from seriously investigating this. The forthcoming report is one step in that process, but it will not be the last.”

The flurry of recent videos and the imminent release of the report has ignited an excitement around unidentified flying things not seen for years. Pope warned, however, that after years of furtiveness from intelligence agencies, people should not expect the government to release everything it knows about these mysterious objects in the sky.

“The report must be unclassified, but it could have a classified annex, so there’s a strong possibility that any earth-shattering facts will be in that classified annex, rather than the unclassified report,” Pope said.

He added: “So people should be excited, but not too excited. They should be pragmatic, and a little expectation management might be useful.”


‘From hearsay to hard evidence’: are UFOs about to go mainstream?

N ick Pope spent the early 1990s investigating UFOs for the British ministry of defence. Sequestered in a rarely visited government office – the “metaphorical basement” – he well remembers how his field of work was regarded.

“I would walk down the corridor and people would whistle the theme music to either Close Encounters of the Third Kind or the Twilight Zone,” Pope told the Guardian.

Towards the end of his spell at the MoD, a new science fiction show featuring a pair of FBI alien hunters was also growing in popularity. “I do recall the X-Files theme tune being whistled, too,” he said.

In the nearly two decades since then, attitudes towards UFOs have slowly been changing, especially in America where the subject matter has gone from the margins to the mainstream, with even former president Barack Obama opining on their potential existence.

Rebranded by governments and enthusiasts as “UAPs”, or unidentified aerial phenomena, 2021 has seen arguably the first ever serious discussion of unknown flying things. In June the Pentagon is set to release a highly anticipated report on what it knows about UAPs, and the excitement about that disclosure has been fueled by a slew of witnesses coming forward to share their experiences with the 60 Minutes news show in May.

Obama was among many public figures to add his thoughts on UAPs and the Pentagon report this month.

“There’s footage and records of objects in the skies, that we don’t know exactly what they are, we can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory,” Obama said in an interview with CBS. “They did not have an easily explainable pattern. And so, you know I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is.”

The sincerity of the discussion around UAPs – “I want us to take it seriously and have a process to take it seriously,” the Republican senator Marco Rubio told 60 Minutes – is a far cry from the jeers Pope once faced.

So what has changed in America?

“In the last three years it has been elevated above just hearsay and segued into hard evidence,” said Pope, who is now based in Arizona, said. “Not just the testimony from military pilots who’ve been involved in encounters with these things, but radar data and the infra-red camera videos that everyone’s seen.”

And so, you know I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is.”

The sincerity of the discussion around UAPs – “I want us to take it seriously and have a process to take it seriously,” the Republican senator Marco Rubio told 60 Minutes – is a far cry from the jeers Pope once faced.

So what has changed in America?

“In the last three years it has been elevated above just hearsay and segued into hard evidence,” said Pope, who is now based in Arizona, said. “Not just the testimony from military pilots who’ve been involved in encounters with these things, but radar data and the infra-red camera videos that everyone’s seen.”

In recent years a series of government videos showing UAPs, have been released, including footage from a navy F-18 fighter jet which showed an oblong object flying through the sky near San Diego in 2004.

This April photos and videos taken by navy personnel were leaked online, showing triangular-shaped objects buzzing around in the sky, and in May leaked military footage showed an oval flying object near a navy ship in San Diego – an apparent UAP hotspot.

Members of the navy saw UAPs so frequently that the encounters became commonplace, Ryan Graves, a retired navy pilot, told 60 Minutes.

“Every day,” Graves said. “Every day for at least a couple years.”

For Ted Roe, who runs the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, a non-profit where pilots or others can report their experiences with UAPs, this was merely confirmation of what he already knew.

“That doesn’t surprise me at all,” Roe said. “Somewhere in the world every day this is happening – it manifests steadily, daily. And from my private conversations with current and former military fliers I feel that the reports that I get – as far as pilot reports – are clearly the tip of the iceberg.”

But for all the apparent easing of taboo around UAPs, Roe says there is still a stigma.

“Nobody is willing to risk their careers or reputation on this subject, even now,” Roe said. “Pilots won’t contact us until they retire. I’d say it’s almost 50-50, the cases I get, that are more recent, versus those that happened years ago and they didn’t want to talk about because they would lose their flight status, and because they were worried about their careers.”

The government – all governments – have previously been reluctant to even acknowledge that they monitor UAPs.

In 2007 the US defense department launched an “Advanced aerospace threat identification program” to investigate UFOs. The effort was so secretive that the public was only made aware of it 10 years later, after a New York Times investigation.

As leaked or officially published footage has spread, however, demands for transparency from the public and politicians has grown, prompting the CIA to release thousands of documents on UAPs in January 2021.

Rubio, the vice-chair of the Senate intelligence committee, has been a particularly loud voice, and he was part of a group of elected officials who succeeded in thrusting the Intelligence Authorization Act for fiscal year 2021 into the $2.3tn coronavirus relief spending bill signed into law by Donald Trump in December.

That act ordered government agencies to provide a declassified “detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence”, and “a detailed description of an interagency process” for reporting UFOs. The report must be handed over by 25 June.

“Men and women we have entrusted with the defense of our country are reporting encounters with unidentified aircraft with superior capabilities,” Rubio told the Tampa Bay Times in mid-May.

“We cannot allow the stigma of UFOs to keep us from seriously investigating this. The forthcoming report is one step in that process, but it will not be the last.”

The flurry of recent videos and the imminent release of the report has ignited an excitement around unidentified flying things not seen for years. Pope warned, however, that after years of furtiveness from intelligence agencies, people should not expect the government to release everything it knows about these mysterious objects in the sky.

“The report must be unclassified, but it could have a classified annex, so there’s a strong possibility that any earth-shattering facts will be in that classified annex, rather than the unclassified report,” Pope said.

He added: “So people should be excited, but not too excited. They should be pragmatic, and a little expectation management might be useful.”


‘From hearsay to hard evidence’: are UFOs about to go mainstream?

N ick Pope spent the early 1990s investigating UFOs for the British ministry of defence. Sequestered in a rarely visited government office – the “metaphorical basement” – he well remembers how his field of work was regarded.

“I would walk down the corridor and people would whistle the theme music to either Close Encounters of the Third Kind or the Twilight Zone,” Pope told the Guardian.

Towards the end of his spell at the MoD, a new science fiction show featuring a pair of FBI alien hunters was also growing in popularity. “I do recall the X-Files theme tune being whistled, too,” he said.

In the nearly two decades since then, attitudes towards UFOs have slowly been changing, especially in America where the subject matter has gone from the margins to the mainstream, with even former president Barack Obama opining on their potential existence.

Rebranded by governments and enthusiasts as “UAPs”, or unidentified aerial phenomena, 2021 has seen arguably the first ever serious discussion of unknown flying things. In June the Pentagon is set to release a highly anticipated report on what it knows about UAPs, and the excitement about that disclosure has been fueled by a slew of witnesses coming forward to share their experiences with the 60 Minutes news show in May.

Obama was among many public figures to add his thoughts on UAPs and the Pentagon report this month.
