US Navy submarines have detected "unknown" craft travelling at unprecedented speeds, according to a political journalist with "very good sources".
Tom Rogan from the Washington Examiner told Fox News' Tucker Carlson it is not thought the craft could be technology from a foreign power.
He said: "I think what we may well be looking at a true unknown.
"Which is to say, intelligently controlled machinery that is not understood to be in the possession of the United States, China or Russia, which are the most three most advanced countries in terms of military aviation.
"Researching this, there isn't anything that we have, top secret information about what China or Russia have or what we have at Area 51, that can do what these things do in terms of the variable performance."
In a clip from 2019, a mysterious "pyramid UFO" appeared to descend into the ocean and the Pentagon has since verified the footage.
There is a possibility craft are coming from an "underwater base" and have the ability to operate both in the air and water, according to some commentators.
Tom continued: "In the coming months and years, an area we will learn more about is the interaction between US Navy submarines – nuclear ballistic submarines and attack submarines – picking up sonar contact of things moving at hundreds of knots under the water.

"So there is an undersea dimension to this that the Navy has sort of pushed off to the side as the pilots talk more about their experiences."
He went on: "That is what I have heard from sources, very good sources, and the Navy has the data."
The underwater speed record for a submarine was the 51 mph (44 knots) Soviet K-222 nuclear attack sub, according to nymag.com.
Supersonic speed underwater is theoretically possible with a technique called supercavitation (surrounding the hull in a giant "bubble" to reduce drag) but it is not thought to have been achieved in practice.
