In an interview with Fox News on Monday, US investigative filmmaker Jeremy Corbell shared his thoughts about Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) in light of a forthcoming Pentagon report on the matter.
UFOs are also referred to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) or Anomalous Aerial Vehicles (AAVs). The Department of Defence (DoD)'s UFO report is due to be released in early June.
In an apparent reference to UFOs, Corbell told Fox News that "we are witnessing, observing, picking up on every type of data that our military has [on] advanced aerospace vehicles that are able to outmaneuver our greatest warplanes".

"They [UFOs] are penetrating and there are incursions in our most restricted airspace around our nuclear weapons. This is something that the military is very interested in, and they have been lying to the American public", the filmmaker claimed.
He insisted that the US is currently "at a place where we see these objects flying with impunity", referring to "numerous individuals" providing UFO-related videos "confirmed by the Pentagon".
"So now, you know, we do know, UFOs are real. Now what they are, you know, maybe as well as I do. We all got to find out", Corbell added.
The filmmaker spoke after sharing footage capturing what has been described as a UFO-like spherical vehicle moving, hovering, and vanishing into the Pacific Ocean.
The US Navy photographed & filmed “spherical” shaped UFOs & advanced transmedium vehicles; here is some of that footage. Filmed in the Combat Information Center of the USS Omaha / July 15th 2019 / warning area off San Diego @ 11pm PST. No wreckage found. No craft were recovered. pic.twitter.com/tK1YTG8sJ7— Jeremy Corbell (@JeremyCorbell) May 14, 2021
The image of the six-foot (2-metre) wide sphere, said to have travelled alongside the USS Omaha for about an hour in July 2019, was obtained via a FLIR camera that can sense and show heat signatures.
The video was released in the wake of the Pentagon's Office of the Inspector General (IG) launching a formal evaluation "to determine the extent to which the DoD has taken actions regarding" UAPs.
This followed the Pentagon launching a special task force in August 2020 to further look into UFOs under then-Deputy Secretary of Defence David Norquist. The DoD emphasised at the time that they "take any incursions by unauthorised aircraft into our [Pentagon] training ranges or designated airspace very seriously", pledging to "examine each [such] report".
