Not US or foreign

I believe, as do the other folks that were on the flight that, we — when we visually saw it, that it was something not from this world.

Well I don't believe they are coming from foreign adversaries. Why if there were that would suggest they have a technology that is in a whole different sphere than anything we understand, and frankly China and Russia just aren't there, and neither are we by the way, so I am not worried about it from a national security standpoint. If for some reason these came from another system if you will, another alien society...That would make me more fascinated, not fearful.

We currently lack data to indicate any UAP are part of a foreign collection program or indicative of a major technological advancement by a potential adversary... Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the [144] UAP reports we collected.

It is hard to conceive of a secret military test program that explains all of these instances. Not just here in the United States but around the world.

I served on the special access program oversight committee so I had access to all the black programs in those days. We know perfectly well there is nothing like that behind the scenes or even on the drawing boards.

We monitor the Chinese and Russians very closely, very carefully. We spend I think the unclassified figure is $70 billion per year on intelligence programs. And it would be very surprising, and stunning, if they had independently developed technology that was that far ahead of everything else and everyone else, somehow secretly. It doesn't seem likely and we don't think that's the case. More likely something else.

I think it's pretty clear this is not us, and it's not anyone else, so one has to ask the question where they're from.
