How to Interpret the Latest Government UFO Report
The long-awaited government report on UFOs has finally been released. What did we learn? And what does it say about the future of ufology?
As we’ve previously reported, the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2021 called on the Director of National Intelligence, as well as the heads of other intelligence agencies, to submit a report and detailed analysis of all unidentified aerial phenomena held by the U.S. government. That report has just been released.
Nick Pope, who worked for the U.K.’s Ministry of Defense investigating UFOs, said, “The bottom line in this nine-page report is ‘yes, these things are real, yes they interact with our military jets, our aircraft carriers (and) destroyers, our pilots see them, our radar operators track them, but no, we don’t have the faintest idea of what we’re dealing with.'”
The Senate Is Unhappy With the Intelligence UFO Report, Demands More
Congress is doubling down on UFO legislation — first the House and now the Senate is demanding answers going back decades.
Members of Congress who are not pleased with the lackluster response from security agencies and the Department of Defense’s response to last year’s UFO-related legislation called for sweeping changes and oversight to the reporting of UFO activity. They just passed even stronger language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2023.
Mirroring the House legislation, the Senate would also create a “secure system” for reporting UAPs, as well as loosen the restrictions on, or release people from, non-disclosure agreements. It also calls for a deep dive into how UAP-related activities were handled by the government dating back to 1947.
So what makes this bill so groundbreaking? Nick Pope served with the UK’s Ministry of Defense covering UAP activity.
“We now have some really strong language in the draft Intelligence Authorization Act for fiscal year 2023. The bottom line is that Congress is continuing to say to the DoD and intelligence community, ‘we want action on the UAP issue,’ and they are clearly not letting it go, and the language is robust. They are articulating a number of must-haves here that we have not seen before.”
