A historic session took place this Tuesday, May 17, in the United States Congress, after Pentagon espionage chiefs presented a face-to-face report on ufowith concrete evidence of more than 400 sightings and 11 accidents related to the phenomenon.
In a tense hearing, intelligence chiefs played the clips in an attempt to highlight the difficulty in reporting and identifying the phenomena, saying the sightings are “frequent and ongoing.”
Ronald S Moultrie, Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, and Scott W. Bray, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence, fielded questions from lawmakers on the highly controversial topic.
The UFO footage, now more commonly known in Washington as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), was taken from a US Navy warship and fighter jet.
“I don’t have an explanation of what this specific object is,” Bray said of one of these objects.
Bray acknowledged that there have been some sightings that US officials “can’t explain.”
“There are a small handful of cases where we have more data that our analysis just hasn’t been able to fully put together a picture of what happened,” he said.
For his part, Mr. Moultrie said: “We know that our service members have encountered unidentified aerial phenomena, and because UAP (unidentified aerial objects) poses potential flight safety and general security risks, we are committed to a focused effort to determine their origins.”
