UAP Encounters and Videos Revealed by Homeland Security Agent
Robert “Bob” Thompson, a former top CBP agent, describes in detail his attempts to construct a reporting system for contacts with unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). This happened while he was serving as a federal agent with US Customs and Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector Special Operations Group in an exclusive article published on May 27th by the defense and technology news site.
The authors of The Debrief’s bombshell article, Tim McMillan, Christopher Plain, and Micah Hanks share Thompson’s story and reveal for the first time the video which was captured by a U.S. Army AH-64 “Apache” attack helicopter revealing 3 fast-moving objects execution maneuvers that seemingly defy all explanations.
The video (available to watch below!) is also reported as revealing “inexplicable movements by the objects, implying that the video likely constitutes the first publicly accessible footage obtained by advanced military sensor systems that show UAP plainly displaying very unorthodox flying characteristics.”
Thompson served in the Arizona Air Coordination Center, which functioned as the principal center of Air Operations within the Tucson Sector, from 2020 to 2021, according to an official news release from The Debrief. Along with his professional responsibilities, he spent time investigating UAP sightings he heard about within the agency, including gathering films and photographs acquired by sophisticated government systems. His boss requested him to write a report explaining why state security agencies wanted to take UAP seriously. After informing the DHS aviation community of his interest in UAP encounters, numerous DHS and National Guard pilots started sharing their UAP contacts, including incidences captured with advanced imaging systems on various aircraft.
One of these films, shot by an AH-64 Apache attack helicopter in November 2018, contains 3 fast-moving objects flying in a loose triangle configuration that abruptly begin to spin into each other as if revolving around an unknown axis while maintaining a constant eastward track. The event and footage are being made public for the first time.
Chris Lehto, a former US Air Force F-16 pilot with a Master’s Degree in Aeronautical Science, was also interviewed for the Debrief. He decided after reviewing the film that the things seen are definitely out of the ordinary. The objects complete a 360-degree turn in less than three seconds, exhibiting a turn rate that is an order of magnitude quicker than one of the world’s fastest turning airplanes.
Thompson sent the video, along with many others, to UFO researcher Andy Marcial, who maintains the NY UAP Discussions Instagram account. Marcial later revealed in The Debrief piece that he was amazed when Thompson contacted him with the clip. However, it was something that people needed to see.
On Saturday, May 28th, the footage will be studied and presented at the UFO Disclosure Symposium. The event will include a live internet and in-person media press conference with analysts, footage holders, and industry professionals discussing and answering questions about the findings. Paul Hynek, Dr. Travis Taylor (astrophysicist), and Dr. Avi Loeb (Harvard physicist and professor) will be among the analysts.
Members of the United States House Intelligence Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation convened legislative hearings with top military officials on May 17, 2022, to explore military reports of inexplicable aerial phenomena. Several movies were exhibited that were captured by US military cameras and monitored by very advanced sensors. This latest release by Thompson and Marcial demonstrates that the United States is ready to engage in serious debates about UAP and the potential concerns they may represent to national and homeland security. Perhaps in the near future, we will see these tapes and the people involved testifying in another senate session. As we proceed towards the uncertain yet fascinating future of the UAP enigma, only time will tell.
