The US Congress added an addendum to the comments section of the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2021 that requires intelligence agencies to publish an unclassified report with information on unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and an analysis of the data already collected. The addendum is part of the package of relief measures related to Covid-19 and approval for the use of government funds for this purpose.
The Office of Naval Intelligence, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force and the FBI are some of the institutions that will have to reveal their conclusions and the information they hold about UFOs and these phenomena. The document must also describe an inter-agency cooperation process to ensure the timely collection of data and the systems for identifying these sightings and informing the authorities. Finally, Congress intends to see clarified situations of potential threat to national security and to identify the risks or potential participation of rival nations, reports the CNN.
Political authorities want an unclassified report to be published, but admit that there is an attachment with information considered secret.
It is recalled that the Pentagon revealed, in April, three short videos that showed “unidentified aerial phenomena” and that the US Navy has already confirmed to be real. In these small clips, one from 2004 and two from 2015, we see objects flying quickly with images captured by infrared cameras. For now, there is no confirmation on what these objects are, nor any consensus on their origin, but the Pentagon announced the creation of a special force, in August, to analyze them.
