The Washington Post reported that unknown space objects, known as UFOs, have become a national security issue in the United States after it was nothing more than a science -fiction comic affair.
Last summer, the US Department of Defense established a task force on unknown weather phenomena with the mission of discovering, analyzing and classifying UFOs that could pose a threat to national security.
During 2007, the leader of the Democratic majority in the Senate, Harry M. Reid, called on his colleagues Ted Stevens and Daniel Eno for a secret discussion about the possibility of the Pentagon funding an UFO investigation.
“I found it really interesting and convincing,” said Reid, who has yet to see a UFO himself.
John Podesta, former President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, says that discussing this issue was the kind of thing that ends a career. ”
Podesta kept his interest in the UFO issue to himself without disclosing it.
As part of the spending and pandemic relief package presented by former President Donald Trump, the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Senator Mark R. Warner (D-Virginia), included a provision calling on the Director of National Intelligence to help produce an unclassified report on everything government agencies knew. Of unidentified flying objects, including dozens of unusual sightings reported by military pilots.
This report is due to be presented to the Senate sometime next month.
Late last year, former CIA director John Brennan, who appeared on a podcast hosted by George Mason University economics professor Tyler Quinn, said it was “a bit arrogant for us to believe that there is no other form of life anywhere in the universe.” The whole. ”
Former CIA directors have been referring to experimental videos of the Air Force and Navy that have appeared in recent years that show unexplained objects on the radar moving at extraordinary speeds and conduct aerial maneuvers that defy logic when compared to what is known about more advanced military aircraft.
However, the desire to discuss the issue of flying objects in public remains paralyzed for some officials in Washington, according to the newspaper.
