The possible outcomes of the report are twofold and not necessarily linked to extraterrestrials.
On the one hand, the report might shed more light on what many believe are incidents of UFOs taking to our skies.
On the other hand, the report might reveal the technological capabilities of foreign militaries, such as Russia and China.
Mr Pope, who appeared on the Tucker Carlson show, said: “Well it’s interesting because Senator Marco Rubio said he would almost rather this was alien because if it turns out to be China or Russia, then we’re in big trouble because the sorts of speeds and manoeuvres and accelerations that these objects are capable of really is concerning. I hope that we’re going to find out about that.
