WATCH: Pentagon UFO Office Getting Shake-Up

The Pentagon’s UFO office is getting a shake-up.

Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, the current head of the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) will continue in his role as department head; however, he will now answer directly to Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks

This shift was reportedly due to growing suspicions that work from AARO is either being stifled or suppressed by elements within the Department of Defense, though this has not been officially confirmed.

News Nation had more on the story:

News Nation’s Joe Khalil explained: “Brigadier Gen. Patrick Ryder, Pentagon Spokesperson, tells me the move to have Deputy Sec. Def. Kathleen Hicks oversee AARO shows how seriously the Pentagon takes UFO/UAP sightings.”

According to News Nation:

There has been some criticism of AARO, particularly from whistleblower David Grusch and others who claimed elements within AARO were not being fully transparent with Congress or the public about UAP reports.

Others have suggested AARO itself has been kept in the dark about illegal UAP programs.

Previously, Kathleen Hicks was interviewed by Jon Stewart on the issue of the defense budget and auditing. Notice how she attempts to side-step the question.

Is Kathleen Hicks really the person who should be in charge of a program that is ultimately responsible for exposing clandestine special access programs?

CBS News reports that AARO is launching a new website aimed at providing even more transparency:

The site aims to serve as a “one-stop shop” for publicly available information related to the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office, known as AARO, and UAPs, the formal government name for the seemingly inexplicable objects previously known as UFOs, Air Force Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder, the Pentagon press secretary, said at a news briefing.

Ryder said the website will provide information including photos and videos on resolved UAP cases as they’re declassified and allowed for public consumption.
