The investigation from the department’s inspector general was announced in a letter Monday to Pentagon leadership and signed by Randolph R. Stone, assistant inspector general for evaluations. “The objective of this evaluation is to determine the extent to which the DoD has taken actions regarding Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP),” Stone wrote in the letter.
“The Department of Defense and the military departments take any incursions by unauthorized aircraft into our training ranges or designated airspace very seriously and examine each report. This includes examinations of incursions that are initially reported as UAP when the observer cannot immediately identify what he or she is observing,” the statement continued.
The task force has included the videos whose authenticity was confirmed last month.
