CIA’s John Brennan Believes There Is Life Beyond Earth

( Just as you thought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, former American intelligence officer and former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), said during a recent podcast appearance that he believes there is life beyond planet earth.

During a “Conversations with Tyler” podcast interview, the former CIA director described the dismissal of alien life as “presumptuous and arrogant.”

“I think some of the phenomena we’re going to be seeing continues to be unexplained and might, in fact, be some type of phenomenon that is the result of something that we don’t yet understand that that could involve some type of activity that some might say constitutes a different form of life,” he said.

“It’s a bit presumptuous and arrogant for us to believe that there’s no other form of life anywhere in the entire universe,” he added.

Brennan made the claims on December 16, but the comments were only noted in recent days as people were shocked that such a high-level former government official would openly suggest that alien life is real.

We also heard more from the government on this topic earlier this year. In April, the Department of Defense confirmed that three videos from the United States Navy, which were unclassified, appeared to show “unidentified aerial phenomena” from 2004 and 2015. Many former pilots and military officials have come forward with stories about witnessing craft in the sky that appear to massively outperform any human-made planes over the years, too.

Brennan described the unclassified videos as “quite eyebrow-raising.” You can see an example of those videos in the clip below.

“You try to ensure that you have as much data as possible in terms of visuals and also different types of maybe technical collection of sensors that you have at the time,” Brennan continued, before saying that analysts should not discount the possibility of alien life.

“I think an important thing for analysts to do is not to go into this type of challenge either discounting certain types of possibilities or believing in advance that it is likely X, Y, or Z,” he said. “You really have to approach it with an open mind, but get as much data as possible and get as much expertise as possible brought to bear.”

Who would have thought 2020 would be the year the world shuts down over a virus…and government officials, past and present, suggest alien life is real?
