The Senate Is Unhappy With the Intelligence UFO Report, Demands More

Avi Loeb on ET Arrival

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.”

What are these not-seen-before, “must haves” included in this bill?

“One of the key provisions is going to be a strengthening of the collection methodology and the science plan,” Pope said. “They’re separate-but-related factors, and obviously have the equation is ‘if you see something say something.’ We’re still not getting all the reports, there’s still some stigma, though that is lessening. But the science plan comes in because you can have all the reports you want, but if it’s not then subsequently investigated in a proper way, it’s meaningless.” 

“One of the absolute key pieces which is completely new is — if you remember when the Congressional hearing that took place back in May — one of the representatives asked about the 1967 Malmstrom (AFB) missile shutdown case, and there were a lot of blank looks and looking at each other, and ‘well, we don’t really have anything on that.’ I think there was a sense that, hey look, DoD and the intelligence community is trying to pretend that this is a story that started in 2004 with the USS Nimitz. It’s not, this is a phenomenon with a 75-year backstory. What the new language says is ‘we want to hear some of that backstory.’ Because what they say is the General Accounting Ofice must go back and review all holdings, all the information, written, oral, whatever they’ve got since 1947, which is a clear nod to Roswell, amongst other things.” 

What should we look out for as this legislation moves through Congress?

“Don’t get too sidetracked by the House version, the Senate version, the Intelligence Authorization. Keep an eye on the NDAA, that’s always the flagship piece of legislation. The Senate wording in the Intelligence Authorization Act is strong. We’ll see, the only danger is that it gets watered down a little. See what goes into the final version of the NDAA and watch for other left-field developments. It’s not like this is happening in isolation,” Pope said. 

The legislation could be passed as early as October or after the midterm elections in November.

US Space Force Hesitant to Take on UFO Study

Should the US Space Force take over the tracking and studying of UFOs? Space Force reportedly says, “no.” Why wouldn’t they want this high-profile job?

In the wake of the UAP report from Congress, which called for the US government to “standardize the reporting, consolidate the data, and deepen the analysis,”  officials are reportedly calling on the recently formed Space Force to play an increased role in the tracking and study of UFOs. But in a recent report by Politico, who spoke to five unnamed officials, the Space Force command is wary of the assignment because “they want people to take them seriously.”

With such a high-profile order for a service which is not even two years old, why would they balk at such an idea?

Cheryl Costa is an investigative journalist and researcher who spent nine years in the US military, including five years as a Navy Electronic Warfare Specialist, she is the co-author of “UFO Sightings Desk Reference USA 2001-2020.”

She said, “Well as far as Space Force taking over, let’s go back to the early 2000s,  ships like the Nimitz and things started experiencing these UFO sightings, had that been anything that resembled a Russian aircraft or Chinese aircraft, a dozen different intelligence groups would have been all over it. We’ve had this stigma since 1968 with the Condon Report that made it to Congress that made everybody who reports a UFO look like a kook or a crackpot.”
