Intelligence agency walks back “erroneous” UFO logo
Recently, an office under the United States intelligence community created a new logo with a flying saucer as part of its insignia. However, upon further review and after receiving some public backlash, intelligence officials have decided to walk back from this change. In a statement obtained by CyberScoop, they explained that the whole ordeal was simply an error that should not have happened in the first place.
While some people suspected the site had been hacked or was unveiling a new logo, an official reports that its webmasters simply ” posted an unofficial and incorrect logo by mistake.” The inaccurate logo has since been removed from the multiple pages where it appeared on the website.
The logo was altered in the closing days of September to reveal the silhouettes of some of the agency’s monitoring threats, such as jets, bombers, and out-of-place flying saucers. Intelligence officials and Congress alike have become increasingly interested in UFOs or UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), which they now refer to as. In fact, one budget request for the neighborhood stated that intelligence officials should devote more time to studying UAPs that may not be man-made.
Not a bad new logo for the National Intelligence Manager for Aviation. A Lazar UFO in the official seal? Hahahhahaha. Radical. I still can’t believe they did this…https://t.co/1ieSIxq2Qt#UFO pic.twitter.com/bt6nedTZe6— Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell (@JeremyCorbell) September 25, 2022
According to the report, any non-attributed objects that are positively identified as man-made after analysis should be passed to appropriate offices and not considered under the definition of unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena.”
After the story broke, a former Department of Defense employee penned an op-ed in which he claims that the language implies officials are aware of some unidentified aerial phenomena not from Earth.
“It strains credulity to believe that lawmakers would include such extraordinary language in public legislation without compelling evidence,” Marik von Rennenkampff said in the op-ed. “This implies that members of the Senate Intelligence Committee believe (on a unanimous, bipartisan basis) that some UFOs have non-human origins. After all, why would Congress establish and task a powerful new office with investigating non-‘man-made’ UFOs if such objects did not exist?”
