This all seems quite reasonable.
Yes it does. She's also issuing an internal directive in public to assure the Congress of DoD compliance. If there were no leaks nor Bigelow, all such unclassified internal directives, nor the entire charade we have come to know as AATIP/UAPTF, would likely not be necessary. There is no reason to believe Pentagon hasn't always taken seriously any and all unidentified phenomena reported at training or test ranges, whether they have been later identified or not, spoofing/tactical deception by DoD's own capabilities or not.
