Congress is holding the first hearing in decades to investigate UFOs National news

(Central Square) – Hearings in the House subcommittee on Tuesday drew national attention with their unusual focus: UFOs.

The Subcommittee on Combating Terrorism, Counterintelligence and Counter-Proliferation in the House of Representatives held a hearing on Tuesday on “Unidentified Air Phenomena”, also commonly referred to as UFOs.

The hearings in Congress, the first of its kind in decades, have allowed lawmakers to raise a number of questions about what a UFO or UAP is, how they are identified and what needs to be done about them.

Pew Research Center poll since last year, it has been found that 65% of Americans surveyed “say their best assumption is that smart life exists on other planets”.

“A smaller but still significant proportion of the population (51%) say the UFOs reported by the military are likely evidence of intelligent life outside the Earth,” Pew said. “Most of these sentiments come from people who say that UFOs reported by the military are” probably “evidence of extraterrestrial life (40%) and not” unconditionally “such evidence (11%) …”

This survey took place just before the publication of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s June report on the UAP.

“It is reported that in a limited number of incidents UAP demonstrated unusual flight characteristics,” the report said. “These observations may be the result of sensor errors, deception or misperception of observers and require additional rigorous analysis. There are probably several types of UAPs that require different explanations based on the range of appearances and behaviors described in the available reports. ”

The report adds that these facilities pose a danger to flights and possibly even to national security.

“Our analysis of the data confirms the design that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved, they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne disorder, natural atmospheric phenomena, U.S. or U.S. industrial development programs, foreign enemy systems, and damage . “Another urn,” the report said.

“Other” containers have been attracting attention for decades. Several UFOs were seen during the hearings in the pictures of the Ministry of Defense, which caused a lot of speculation on the Internet.

“This is a real and absurd phenomenon, and Congress and the administration will give it the attention it needs,” said Christopher Melan, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence.

Others criticized Congress for paying attention to the problem when other problems, such as inflation and the shortage of infant formula, were not eliminated.

Some lawmakers have expressed concern about the implications for national security, especially if UFOs are foreign aircraft. Scott W. Bray, deputy director of naval intelligence, said there were several inappropriate mistakes with such U.S. military facilities and aircraft.

“Unidentified aerial events are a potential threat to national security and should be treated as such,” said Andre Carson, a spokesman for Indiana, who led the hearing. a way of good intelligence analysis. The pilots avoided or laughed at the reports. Representatives of the Ministry of Defense put the problem in the back room or swept it under the rug, fearing the skeptical national security community. “

In general, however, Americans do not consider UFOs a serious problem.

“When asked to think about U.S. national security, a majority of Americans (87%) say UFOs are not a threat at all (51%) or a minor threat (36%),” the Pew poll said. “One in ten says UFOs are a serious threat to U.S. national security.”
