The United States Senate has taken a step toward what could be revelations of UFOs and extraterrestrial life.
Have you ever wondered what your reaction would be, and what you would do, or for that matter what the United States and the world would do if the existence of extraterrestrial life was proven? Would the nations of the world join together, set aside their mistrust, and in many cases hatred of each other, and look to the heavens expecting who knows what?
Over the last 70 years, we have been inundated with the science fiction genre in motion pictures, books television series, and lest we forget the late great actor, writer, director and producer Orson Wells and his October 1938 radio broadcast of a fictional alien invasion, based on H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” that caused panic among the listeners who according to some reports may not have heard the introduction of the program.
On Sunday, December 26, President Trump signed the 5593-page, $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief and government funding bill. The so-called pork that comprises many of the expenditures can be found throughout the pages of the bill. As far as I know, however, there is no one who has made an extensive reading of the monstrosity, but like the Affordable Care Act, I guess the protocol is we have to first pass it, then we can read it, remember?
There is one particular part of the bill that I would imagine most Americans would be quite surprised at, perhaps even somewhat frightened at learning. Included in what is known as a Committee Comment, a bipartisan Explanatory Statement, in the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA), by order of the Senate directs the Director of National Security to submit within a 180-day period of the (IAA) enactment a report to the Congressional Intelligence and Armed Services Committee on the question of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, UFO’s, in restricted U.S. airspace and its potential threat to national security. The Senate has also asked whether the sightings can be attributed to foreign adversaries.
This request was not part of the voluminous COVID legislation, but was attached to the annual Intelligence Authorization Act and then placed into the legislation. Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Christopher Mellon explained it was “Now fair to say that this request has bipartisan support.” He continued, “I’m hopeful the new administration will vigorously execute its oversight prerogatives because the concerns of the public and numerous U.S. military personnel have been ignored by a complacent national security bureaucracy for far too long.”
Specifically, the report must address “Observed airborne objects that have not been identified,” as well as “Detailed analysis of unidentified phenomena data collected by: geospatial intelligence, signals intelligence, human intelligence, and measurement and signals intelligence.” The Pentagon acknowledged the report and has also confirmed and declassified the 2004 and 2015 incidents, including the “Tic Tac UFO,” and released a video that depicts Navy fighter jets off the USS Nimitz nuclear aircraft carrier and their encounter with unidentified aerial phenomena. This incident appears to have been the Senate’s main reason for their request for the report.
As far back as Area 51 and the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico incident that detailed the crash, and recovery by the United States Air Force of an extraterrestrial spacecraft, sightings of UFOs - close encounters of the first kind - have numbered in the thousands over the decades, and have been reported across planet earth. Photos of objects in the sky of one sort or another are voluminous, and they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors.
In 1952 Project Blue Book was the third study of its kind conducted by the United States Air Force of the Unidentified Flying Object phenomena. The goal of Project Blue Book was to determine the validity, if any, of extraterrestrial spacecraft and biological entities, and the threat level. It was discontinued in 1969 and was later declassified and is now available for public scrutiny in the National Archives.
In an interview, President Trump was asked what his thoughts were on the Roswell incident and UFO’s, he replied “I won’t talk to you about what I know about it, but it’s very interesting.” The scientific community has also emphasized the need to “study Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon for reliable evidence of their existence.”
