Washington (CNN)The Department of Defense's watchdog is set to examine how the Pentagon has handled reports of UFOs, which the department refers to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
The investigation from the department's inspector general was announced in a letter Monday to Pentagon leadership and signed by Randolph R.
"The objective of this evaluation is to determine the extent to which the DoD has taken actions regarding Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)," Stone wrote in the letter.
The investigation comes less than a month after the Pentagon confirmed the authenticity of photos and video from Navy personnel, taken in 2019, that appeared to show triangle-shaped objects blinking and moving through the clouds.
Last April, the Pentagon released three short videos of UAPs from infrared cameras that appeared to show flying objects moving quickly.
Four months later, the Pentagon created a task force to better understand "the nature and origins of UAPs," the Defense Department said in a statement.
