BARACK Obama has said he believes new religions could emerge and the United States could stockpile weapons if the Pentagon’s UFO report confirms the existence of extraterrestrial life.
His comments come as an unclassified UFO intelligence report is expected to be delivered to Congress today.
Obama was asked whether he thought the undeniable alien evidence would change his policy during a podcast interview with The Ezra Klein this week.
“New religions would emerge,” the former president said if alien life was confirmed.
“But without a doubt, there would be some immediate arguments like, well, we have to spend a lot more money on weapon systems to defend ourselves.
“And who knows what kind of arguments we’re getting into,” the former president added.
“We’re good at making arguments for each other.”
Overall, Obama said he didn’t believe his policies would change if the Pentagon’s UFO report said aliens existed.
“My policy has always been based on the idea that the differences we have on this planet are real,” he told Klein.
“They’re deep. And they cause tremendous tragedy as well as joy.
“But we are just a bunch of humans with doubts and confusion. We are doing our best,” Obama continued.
“And the best thing we can do is treat each other better because we are all we have.
“And so I hope that knowing that there were aliens out there would make people feel that what we have in common is a little more important.”
Obama previously said military UFO sightings “must be taken seriously.”
Speaking on James Corden’s The Late Late Show last week, the former president said he saw the recently released footage of UFOs harassing U.S. military targets.
“What is true … is that there are pictures and recordings of objects in the sky that we don’t know exactly what they are,” Obama said.
“We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory… they didn’t have an easily explainable pattern.
“So I think people still take it seriously to try to investigate and figure out what it is. But I have nothing to tell you today.
Obama also admitted that during his inauguration he asked about the possibility of UFOs.
“Look, the truth is when I took office I asked,” he told Corden.
“I was like, ‘Alright, is there a lab somewhere where we keep alien specimens and spaceships? “
“They did a little research…. and the answer was “No,” he joked.
In this week’s interview with Klein, Obama reiterated that he “absolutely” would like to know what is behind the military UFO sightings.
“My whole policy is based on the fact that we are these tiny organisms on this little point floating in the middle of space,” he added in the New York Times podcast.
Congress passed legislation in December mandating the Defense Department and the National Intelligence Director to produce a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” within six months.
The report will not be classified and should contain everything the US government knows about UAPs.
It is believed that the document could arrive as early as today – June 1.
It will examine whether unidentified aerial phenomena pose a threat to US airspace, reports Deadline.
The report is unlikely to conclude that very advanced aliens are the cause, but it cannot rule them out.
Recommendations for further UFO research and funding are expected to be included in the dossier.
Last year, Pentagon officials took the unprecedented step of posting a trio of remarkable videos that showed “encounters” with UFOs.

Perhaps most striking was a video known as “Tic Tac” – which showed an unidentified object being chased by fighter jets.
And, many San Diego-based American warships have reportedly been visited by strange ships from above.
The USS Kidd, a Navy destroyer, was using night vision cameras and spotted several mysterious flashing objects in the sky, according to images the Pentagon revealed to the Sun.
