This week is seeing the first Congressional hearings on UFO’s/UAP’s in decades. If you have missed what is going on the following story gives a good overview:
My personal concern is that there was not sufficient focus on the UAP’s as a national security issue, rather than as simply unidentified objects. As an example, the hearings did produce an acknowledgement that large drone swarms (unidentified) operated around and essentially engaged U.S. Navy units – I would have expected that to produce a lot of interest but it appears to have passed by without much notice or concern (actually I would expect that to bring people on a national security/intelligence committee off their seats).
While much attention was given to more or less contemporary Navy pilot reports, other incidents very much related to national security didn’t even get a mention – as an example, the Air Force and NORAD’s performance in the following incident should really have been something of a concern for this committee:
What also seems clear is that the broader historical context of UFO’s/UAP’s is missing from the conversation – even the portions that deal with national security, such as the well known “northern tier” Strategic Air Command base incidents including incidents at Loring AFB. You can read about below but which the officers interviewed by the committee stated that reports at atomic weapons bases were totally new to them?!
In any event, for those readers who would like an introduction to the subject, the following link will take you to a recent interview of mine which is a general exploration of the subject; it would serve as a good backgrounder if you’ve never paid that much attention to either UFOs (unidentified objects) or UAP’s (unidentified phenomena).
