A former CIA director has suggested that UFOs are real, after saying a respected friend’s aircraft once paused at 40,000 feet.

R. James Woolsey, former CIA director under Bill Clinton is now the third former government official to hint at this possibility.

He appeared on the YouTube conspiracy channel ‘The Black Vault Originals’ to discuss his upcoming book, ‘Operation Dragon.’

In it, he claims that Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President John F. Kennedy at the direction of Soviet Russia.

The subject of UFOs was eventually broached in the conversation with host John Greenwald Jr.

Woolsey claimed he had various stories of unexplained flying phenomena run past him and as a result, it has left him open to the possibility of aliens life.

He also hinted that there could be news with more information in the coming weeks.

“There have been over the years now events of one kind of another, usually involving some kind of aircraft-like airframe,” he said.

Woolsey then said that the accounts “always seemed pretty far-out to me.”

But, he does go on to say an unnamed friend, “was able to have his aircraft stop at 40,000 feet or so and not continue operating as a normal aircraft.”

Another former government official that has hinted at this is John Brennan, CIA director for former president Barack Obama.

Brennan discussed this during a December episode of “Conversations with Tyler,” hosted by academic Tyler Cowan.

He said: “I think it’s a bit presumptuous and arrogant for us to believe that there’s no other form of life anywhere in the entire universe.”

On March 19, John Ratcliffe, former president Donald Trump’s director of national intelligence, claimed on a Fox News show that the government had recorded much more than the public is aware regarding UFOs.

After three different testimonies from former government officials, maybe we should be bracing ourselves...
