For the first time in more than 50 years, Congress hosted a hearing on UFOs in which the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and United States Security, Ronald Moultrie, and the deputy director of United States Naval Intelligence, Scott Bray.
During the session before a subcommittee on House Intelligence, several legislators emphasized that the reason for the hearing was to end the stigma on this subject so that the military inform their superiors when they encounter a phenomenon of this type.
Given this, the Democrat Andre Carson He said that more than half a century ago the United States Government put an end to the project “Blue Book”which analyzed 12,618 UFOs detected by the country’s Air Force between 1952 and 1969, but years later, in 2017, lawmakers learned that the Department of Defense had quietly started a similar project to track what USA has stopped calling UFOs to denominate unidentified aerial phenomena; and last year Congress wrote the rules for this initiative.
CREATE A DEPARTMENT TO ANALYZE UFOs
For its part, Moultry He explained that in October of last year, the Pentagon created an office to review any encounter with UFOs or phenomena of this type.
The deputy director of United States Naval Intelligence, Scott Bray, mentioned an official report published almost a year ago where it was stated that the country has detected between 2004 and 2021 a total of 144 unidentified aerial phenomena, but as of today the figure has uploaded to 400 sightings.
The reason for the increase is believed to be that soldiers have started reporting more of this type of phenomenon, thanks to the work that is being done to put an end to stigmasince before they preferred not to mention it, as well as the use of drones.
It is speculated that when making an analysis of the phenomena it could be known that it is interference in radars, natural atmospheric phenomena, development programs of the Government or the industry of the United States or systems of foreign adversaries, although “hThere is another “box” in which “hard cases” would fall, and the possibility of surprises and potential scientific discoveries”, indicated the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security of the United States.

Democratic legislator adam schiff was intrigued, since the report from June last year, released by the office of the Director of National Intelligence of the United States, listed 18 unidentified aerial phenomena, which apparently had sophisticated technology and flew without “no discernible means of propulsion”, to which the deputy director of Naval Intelligence replied that they are not aware that any rival can do it. “I would just say that there are a series of events that we don’t have any explanation for.”
During the session, those responsible for the Pentagon illustrated with videos of UFOs, although many times the explanation can be simple, like a drone or a reflecting object.
Another of the legislators, the Republican Eric Crawford, asked the officials Defending if they could offer a concrete example of an object whose origin is not natural and cannot be attributed to human beings.
Bray mentioned a video recorded in 2004 by a Navy fighter from the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS “Nimitz”: “We have data on that and it’s something that just remains unresolved.”
