NORAD Commander Doesn’t Rule Out Aliens

Speaking on a conference call Sunday, Air Force General Glen VanHerck was asked whether the United States has ruled out the possibility that the “objects” that have been spotted and shot down over North America are extraterrestrial in origin.

The incursions seemed to become so common that Biden administration officials have found themselves issuing private assurances that there is no evidence that they involve extraterrestrial activity. But officials also acknowledge privately that the longer they are unable to provide a public explanation for the provenance of the objects, the more speculation grows.

NYT Pentagon correspondent Helene Cooper, who co-wrote the article, asked about this tidbit during the presser, directing her question to NORAD commander VanHerck.
