Senior U.S. Air Force General Says He’s Not Ruling Out Aliens As Explanation For Unidentified Objects Shot Down



On Sunday, the U.S. Air Force general overseeing North American airspace said after a series of unidentified objects were shot down by the U.S. military that he would not rule out aliens as an explanation. 

When asked if the U.S. military had ruled out aliens for the unidentified objects, U.S. Air Force General Glen VanHerck responded: “I’ll let the intel community and the counterintelligence community figure that out. I haven’t ruled out anything.”

“At this point we continue to assess every threat or potential threat, unknown, that approaches North America with an attempt to identify it,” VanHerck continued.

The Biden administration has since said that there is “no indication of aliens or extraterrestrial activity” in relation to the objects, but has not yet offered an official explanation. 

The unidentified object recently shot down over Lake Huron has been described as “octagonal.” VanHerck seems confident the objects were not balloons.

“I’m not going to categorize them as balloons. We’re calling them objects for a reason,” VanHerck said. “I’m not able to categorize how they stay aloft. It could be a gaseous type of balloon inside a structure or it could be some type of a propulsion system. But clearly, they’re — they’re able to stay aloft.”

“We assessed taking a gunshot yesterday in that event, as well as today, and the pilots in each situation felt that that was really unachievable because of the size, especially yesterday in the altitude and also because of the challenge to acquire it visually because it’s so small,” VanHerck said.

“We have taken extreme caution to ensure that we limit potential collateral damage, so today, we worked closely with the FAA to clear out the airspace,” he added. “I gave direction specifically to the pilots to use their visual acuity to check for mariners on the ground, airplanes in the air to clear with their radars as well. And when they were comfortable, that we can minimize collateral damage, they selected the best weapon today that was the AIM 9x (missile). And they took the shot.”
