The Pentagon’s UFO chief, Sean Kirkpatrick, is about to blast off into retirement, leaving behind a trail of warnings about strange sky visitors. After leading the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) for a year and a half, Kirkpatrick is finally making a clean getaway. He had put off his exit strategy, yearning for some hard evidence of those pesky aliens, but alas, the unhinged extraterrestrials remained elusive.
During his brief stint, this UFO sleuth dug into over 800 cases of eerie encounters. His conclusion? Brace yourself, Earthlings. There’s no smoking gun proving that little green men are out there, but Kirkpatrick insists we should be trembling in our boots anyway. His theory? If those UFOs aren’t the handiwork of little green men, then they must be the sneaky doings of earthbound rivals. Yikes!

While his extraterrestrial hunt may have hit a dead end, Kirkpatrick’s other feats are to be admired, like making the Pentagon’s UFO files accessible to the masses. This alien aficionado has brought the mysterious world of UFOs out of the shadows and into the light, even if the oddities remain frustratingly out of reach.
Despite Kirkpatrick’s willingness to believe in the possibility of alien invaders, he stood before Congress and declared that there’s been no credible proof of their mischievous escapades. He even threw shade at a whistleblower who claimed the US was hoarding alien spacecraft, dubbing the snitch’s allegations as downright scandalous.
But before Kirkpatrick rides off into the sunset, the Department of Defense is showering him with praise, citing his dedication to bringing the US Capitol and the public into the loop on all matters UFO. His departmental departure is said to leave a lasting impact on the future safety and science schemes of our nation.
With Kirkpatrick’s second-in-command, Tim Phillips, taking over the UFO task force, the pursuit of those slippery little green men will continue. Despite the lack of solid evidence, the hunt for evidence of outsiders meddling in our skies will carry on, leading the charge to keep this nation safe from whatever may be lurking among the stars.
