In May, the Pentagon announced an initiative to better understand “unidentified aerial phenomena,” or what we know as UFOs.
In a conference before the House Intelligence Subcommittee, two senior US defense intelligence officials confirmed 140 official cases of UFO sightings since 2014 and stated that the Pentagon is committed to further investigating the origin of such unexplained objects and assessing their threat – if any – for our country’s national security, according to Reuters.
“UAPs are unclear, that’s true. But they are real,” said Andre Carson, the subcommittee chair.
“We are aware that our service personnel have encountered unidentified airborne phenomena, and as UAPs pose potential flight safety and general security risks, we commit to a focused effort to determine their origin,” said Ronald Moultrie, one of the US -Intelligence agent.
