Congress May Probe UFO Reports, Report Suggests

( House Bill HR. 4350 reveals how Congress is looking to establish a permanent government office that will examine UFO reports and possible extraterrestrial threats.

Section 1652 of the legislation says that no later than 180 days after the bill is passed, the Secretary of Defense and the Director of National Intelligence must establish an office within the Office of the Secretary of Defense to perform a Department-wide mission investigation Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.

The bill, titled “Establishment of [an] Office to Address Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,” says that from now on the term UFO will be replaced with “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAP). The term “UAP” refers to any airborne object that is witnessed by an aircrew member of pilot that is not immediately identifiable.

The Washington Times reports that the bill was delayed on Wednesday owing to various budgetary concerns – notably the Democrats’ attempt to pass an unprecedented $3.5 trillion spending bill and raise the debt ceiling to pay for it.

It comes after the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a report in June detailing a number of UAP sightings by military personnel and pilots. The report said that the limited amount of “high quality” reporting on UAPs has hindered the department’s ability to draw firm conclusions about what is behind these sightings.

According to the report, there were 11 reports of pilots experiencing near misses with UAPs.

Does Congress know something we don’t?

Or is government finally getting serious about figuring out what UFOs really are?
