WASHINGTON | The u.s. Senate wants to regulate the activity of the cell in the Pentagon who are studying the unidentified flying objects (ufos), so that the public is informed of its activities and that the various branches of the u.s. intelligence to share information.
In an amendment to the finance bill 2021 currently under discussion, the Intelligence committee of the Senate lends its support to the work cell on the unidentified aerial phenomena” of the Pentagon, thus confirming officially the continuation of the activities of this unit, unveiled in 2017 by the New York Times.
For the very serious senators, “unidentified aerial phenomena” have nothing to do with potential little green men, but rather with the very real adversaries of the United States.
This cell is attached to the office of naval intelligence of the u.s. army’s mission is to”harmonize the collection of information and reports on unidentified aerial phenomena, their potential links with government opponents and the threats they pose to the equipment and the buildings of the american army,” says the text tabled by the republican senator of Florida, Marco Rubio, and published last week.
The United States are notably concerned about the capabilities of spying on China using drones or other airborne means.
While recognizing that this is a delicate topic, the senators “are that information sharing and coordination between intelligence services on the matter are inconsistent”, and therefore want to see a detailed report – and public – on the activities of the work cell and on the phenomena it has observed.
If this amendment is adopted, the Pentagon will have 180 days to submit this report to the Congress.
The Pentagon has released the end of April three videos taken by pilots of the US Navy showing meetings in flight with what appear to be ufos. One of those videos – all in black-and-white – date of November 2004 and the other two of January 2015.
On one, we can see an object of oblong shape moving rapidly, a few seconds after being spotted by one of the sensors on board the aircraft of the U.S. Navy, disappears on the left to the result of a sudden acceleration.
In another video, one distinguishes an object from above the clouds, the pilot is asking if it is a drone.
