The Pentagon has reportedly admitted to testing debris from UFO crashes, according to a researcher’s interpretation of its response to a Freedom of Information request.

In December 2017, Anthony Bragalia requested details of materials recovered by personnel of the Department of Defense from UAPs [unidentified aerial phenomenon] or unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and results of any tests carried out on them.

More than three years later, the Defense Intelligence Agency identified five documents that total 154 pages, which Bragalia shared on his blog and with The Sun.

The disclosure included information about Nitinol, a metal alloy which “remembers” its original shape.

Bragalia, who runs a website called UFO Explorations, described the response as a “stunning admission”.

He claimed: "The Pentagon has admitted to holding and testing anomalous debris from UFOs. They have been able to learn some things about the materials of construction which hold tremendous promise as futuristic materials which will change our lives forever."

Bragalia added that some of the debris that has been tested could have come from the so-called Roswell Incident of 1947, when some believe an alien aircraft crashed in New Mexico and was captured by the military.

He said he first sent the request after it was revealed the Pentagon ran a secret programme to investigate sightings of UFOs between 2007 and 2012.

The Defense Intelligence Agency withheld some portions of the documents from disclosure.

Bragalia claimed: "They are omitting information on the chemical and elemental composition of the material as well as its origin.”

The researcher is planning to appeal the exemptions to obtain more of the requested information.
