Congress is holding a hearing Tuesday about reports of strange objects in the skies that experts say they cannot explain. For the first time in more than 50 years, our government is taking UFOs seriously.
A House panel is hearing from experts Tuesday on 144 UAPs — Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, also known as UFOs. This comes after years of silence, coverups and retribution against Defense Dept. officials and others who were reluctant to admit that… something is out there.
Rep. Andre Carson shared the same concerns that many experts over the years have … that UAPs represent a serious national security threat and must be treated as such.
Carson said that Navy pilots were reluctant to even report UAPs because they feared they’d be laughed at and seen as crazy… possibly jeapordizing their position in the military.
“For too long, the stigma associated with UAPs has gotten in the way of good intelligence analysis. Pilots avoided reporting or were laughed at when they did. DOD officials relegated the issue to the backroom or swept it under the rug entirely, fearful of a skeptical national security community,” Carson said. “Today, we know better. UAPs are unexplained, it’s true. But, they are real. They need to be investigated. And, any threats they pose need to be mitigated.”
The Pentagon’s UAP Task Force released a report last year, that confirmed there were more than 140 objects they analyzed that could not be explained.
Pentagon officials say the number of UAPs has now climbed to over 400 since last year’s report was published.
