The United States Congress held for the first time, in more than 50 years, the first public hearing related to the UFO phenomenon, derived from the Law signed by President Joe Biden on December 27, 2021, which requires areas of internal security of the United States to take this issue very seriously and to accountability and reporting, through the exercise of these conferences that will be regular and public.
This congress really dealt with the importance of a controversial issue that for a long time has been relegated to the margins of public policy, in order to end the stigmas about it, the military inform their superiors when they encounter a phenomenon of this type , in addition to answering so many questions that humanity has had for many decades about the existence of these phenomena.
The role being carried out by the Pentagon and the intelligence agencies in relation to the presence of the mysterious Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), now called Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, was commented on.
In the first public hearing of Congress, held on May 17, 2022, two senior United States defense intelligence officials: Ronald Moultrie, head of the Pentagon intelligence services, and Scott Bray, deputy director of Naval Intelligence, were those who testified this Tuesday in the Capitol, about what the Government knows about UFOs.
Even the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security of the United States, Ronald Moultrie, affirmed this Tuesday that the soldiers of his country have encountered “unidentified flying objects” and that his department is collecting data to analyze them.
Congressman Adam Schiff reiterated a point made in the June 2021 Pentagon report on UAPs: Of the 144 UAP incidents between 2004 and 2021, 80 percent were recorded on multiple instruments.
So-called “multi-sensory data” includes smartphones, video cameras, infrared cameras, and radars. Eighteen of the 144 incidents appeared to demonstrate “unusual flight characteristics that appeared to demonstrate advanced technology.”
Schiff asked if any of the 18 sightings that seemed to demonstrate alien technology included craft emitting radio frequency energy, possibly nodding to a 2004 incident in which US Navy pilots thought they encountered anti-radar jamming from PAUs.
Bray said that some of the objects that were emitting radio frequency energy weren’t behaving “strangely,” suggesting that some of the PAIs emitting radio waves could be some kind of artificial drone.
In response to another question, Bray admitted that he was not aware of an adversary that could move an object “without a discernible means of propulsion,” but later said that sensor artifacts could accidentally hide evidence of conventional propulsion.
For example, a pixel blur and lack of detail could hide the nozzle of a jet engine or propeller. He also said some of the objects appeared to have “signature management,” which could include masking an object’s infrared or radar signatures in a similar way to stealth aircraft such as the B-2 Spirit stealth fighter and the F-22 Raptor.
Pentagon officials released two pieces of video evidence. The first, apparently captured from a smartphone, shows a small spherical object zooming past the cockpit of a US Navy fighter in the blink of an eye. “I don’t have an explanation for what this particular object is,” Bray said.
Bray and Moultrie then showed another video, taken on the West Coast in 2018, of what appears to be an intermittent triangle, similar to a “swarm” of other objects reported by multiple US Navy assets on a different shoreline.
We are now reasonably certain that these triangles correspond to unmanned aerial systems in the area,” Bray said.
The triangular appearance of UAPs, he explained, was the result of light “passing through the night vision goggles and then passing through the SLR camera,” and that actual flying objects were not triangular in nature. .
Congressman Mike Gallagher asked if the UAP task force was aware of the so-called “Malmstrom Incident,” in which ten nuclear-tipped ICBMs from Malmstrom Air Base were “dealerted” and disabled, allegedly by a UFO. nearby.
The officials responded that they had heard of similar incidents, but that this particular incident was not listed in the AOIMSG database.
Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi asked if there had been any communication
and that no weapons had been fired at the objects.
Krishnamoorthi then asked if the government had run into any “leftovers”. According to Bray, the Pentagon does not possess any objects of terrestrial origin that cannot be explained.
The questions, Pope tells Popular Mechanics, didn’t include any real assessment of what’s going on: “A key question that wasn’t asked is this:
If specific high-profile cases like the USS Nimitz ‘Tic Tac’ incident in 2004 remain unexplained, what is the best current assessment in the DOD and the intelligence community?”
In any high-level intelligence analysis, I would expect there to be a better current assessment.
But we haven’t heard what it is, and the Defense Department isn’t even commenting on its existence, says Pope.
It would also be interesting to hear the most popular competing theories American technology ranked, adverse drones, and aliens ranked, using words of estimative probability.
One of the most revealing exchanges between Bray, Moultrie, and members of Congress took place when Rep. Krishnamoorthi asked if our encounters with the PAUs have altered the development of our offensive, defensive, or even sensor capabilities.
Bray’s response was mysterious and tantalizing. We’ll save it for the closed-door session, he answered.
It may be a while before we find out much more information. Closed sessions are hearings closed to the public, restricted only to members of Congress and their staff, in which classified and other secret information is discussed.
In the end, the audience did not reveal much. On the contrary, it stimulated a number of important questions about the unidentified aerial phenomenon that we have recently encountered.
House Intelligence Subcommittee Chairman Andre Carson remarked: “While unexplained, unidentified aerial phenomena are real.
They need to be investigated and the multiple threats they can infer need to be mitigated. “In addition, he asked Moultrie if they were willing to consider all hypotheses, to which the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security replied: We are open to all hypotheses and to any conclusions that we can find.
We want to know what’s out there as much as you want to know. Despite the uncertainties, it is possible to be sure of something: the attraction that concentrates this topic is unquestionable.
In fact, every July 2nd is World UFO Day.
