House Intelligence Subcommittee Chairman on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Rep. André Carson (D-Ind.) verbally expressed Sunday that he wants Congress to conduct hearings on sightings of UFOs after the relinquishment of the Pentagon report that examines “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAPs).
We have a pretty zealous schedule. Chairman Schiff has a pretty zealous agenda and my own committee we’re orchestrating on having a series of hearings … and hopefully we will discuss UAPs in the very near future I can’t give a definitive date right now,
said Carson.The congressman told CBS’s “Face the Nation” host in an interview Sunday that the incipiently unclassified report on UFOs (pdf) was “inconclusive” on the inchoations of more than 140 objects.
The June 25 Pentagon report stated, UAP limpidly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security, integrating that the phenomena “probably lack a single explication.”
In a circumscribed number of incidents, UAP reportedly appeared to exhibit eccentric flight characteristics. These visual examinations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require supplemental rigorous analysis,
it added.“What we do ken is that … there have been proximately 150 sightings,” Carson integrated. Eighty of those sightings have been detected with some of the best technology the world has ever optically discerned. The Pentagon report gave one possible explication for the sightings, verbalizing that the UAP could be advanced technologies developed by U.S. adversaries such as China or Russia, potentially posing a national security threat.
The Congressman verbally expressed that this possibility warrants supplemental investigations.
People want members of the regime to verbally express it’s extraterrestrial. We won’t stop there but certainly, it poses a technological concern for us and it poses a national security concern for us because we don’t want our adversaries to have a technological advance over us in terms of what they can do and their capabilities but what is curious, is that many of these sightings have occurred around many of our military assets, our naval bases, our military installations,
said Carson.Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News in a June interview that UAP appear to exhibit technology that the United States doesn’t have and can’t bulwark against.
“I’m genuinely blissful that there’s a report out there,” Ratcliffe verbalized in the interview. The bottom line is with unidentified aerial phenomenon—many, many cases we’re able to expound it away for reasons like visual perturbances or weather phenomenon, or peregrine adversaries and their technologies, or even our own experimental technologies with certain aircraft and conveyances.Concurrently, Ratcliffe verbalized there are a number of cases where no such explications apply.
What this report authentically underscores … is that there are a number of instances—and the concrete number remains classified—but a number of instances where we’ve ruled all of that out,
he said.The Pentagon in its report indited that an immensely colossal number of sightings around U.S. military bases may result from an accumulation inequitableness as a result of focused attention, more preponderant numbers of latest-generation sensors operating in those areas, unit prospects, and guidance to reporting anomalies. Carson withal verbally expressed Sunday that it would be “arrogant to verbalize that there isn’t life out there.” He verbally expressed officials “can’t rule out something that’s otherworldly,” and that it was possible in only a “very minuscule percentage” of cases.
If it is otherworldly, we have to take into account our advancements in terms of our cell phone technology and why aren’t these images being captured? Carson continued. We have to contemplate the proximately 4,000 satellites that are orbiting the Earth right now. Most of those satellites have cameras annexed to them. Why hasn’t any of that information been relinquished? And so, we still want to ascertain that our adversaries don’t have a technological edge on us, but we still can’t rule out that 2 to 6 percent that could be something we can’t explicate, maybe even otherworldly.Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff verbalized in a June 25 press verbalization, We should approach these questions without preconceptions to inspirit an exhaustive, systematized analysis of the potential national security and flight safety risks posed by unidentified aerial phenomena, whether they are the result of a peregrine adversary, atmospheric or other aerial phenomena, space debris, or something else entirely.
