For the first time in more than 50 years, the US Congress has held a public hearing dedicated to “unidentified aerial events”.
Scott Pray, deputy director of U.S. Navy intelligence, said: “Since the early 2000s, we have seen an increase in the number of unauthorized or unidentified items.
The official said the “substantial efforts” were dedicated to “enhancing the significant efforts” of the U.S. military to “tarnish the surveillance reporting process” and to technological advancement.
However, he pointed out that he did not find anything that could “suggest a non-Earth origin” for these events. But did not categorically rule out the possibility.
In June 2021, U.S. intelligence already stated in a long-awaited report that there was no evidence of the existence of extraterrestrials, while acknowledging that it could not explain the dozens of events observed by military pilots.
Some may explain the presence of drones or birds creating chaos in the radar systems of the U.S. military. Others may arise from tests of military equipment or technologies carried out by other powers, such as China or Russia.
The U.S. military and intelligence services are trying to determine if these “unidentified aerial events” can be linked to threats against the United States.
Democrat Andre Carson, the leader of the parliamentary committee behind the investigation, warned that “unidentified aerial events are a potential threat to national security.” “And they should be treated like that.”
