A US senate report which is an addendum to the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 has people talking due to the surprising statements it includes about the US governments current position on UFOs.
I mean Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
I mean Unidentified Aerospace-Undersea Phenomena.
This latest moniker for the thing we all still think of as UFOs is the US governments way of addressing how these alleged appearances, which began entering mainstream attention in 2017, are said to be able to transition seamlessly from traveling through the air to moving underwater in whats been labeled cross-domain transmedium movement. Because branches of the US war machine are roughly broken up into forces specializing in air, sea, land and space operations, the notion that these things move between those domains gets special attention.
UFO enthusiasts are largely focusing on a part of the addendum which oddly stipulates that the governments newly named Unidentified Aerospace-Undersea Phenomena Joint Program Office shall not be looking into objects that are positively identified as man-made, because of the obvious implications of that phrase. This is understandable; if youve got a government office thats responsible for investigating unidentified phenomena, you can just say it wont be looking into phenomena that are positively identified. You wouldnt have to add identified as man-made unless you had a specific reason for doing so.
But for me the claim that really jumps off the page, authored by Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mark Warner, is the claim that these unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena are a threat that is increasing exponentially.
At a time when cross-domain transmedium threats to United States national security are expanding exponentially, the Committee is disappointed with the slow pace of DoD-led efforts to establish the office to address those threats, Warner writes in the report.
Exponentially is a mighty strong word. Taken in its least literal sense, it means that threats to US national security from UFOs are increasing at an alarmingly rapid rate. That they have swiftly become much greater than they used to be.
What is the basis for this incendiary claim? What information are US lawmakers being given to make them draw such conclusions and make such assertions? Theres a long chain of information handling between an alleged UFO encounter and a US senators pen, and corruption can occur at any point in that chain (including the first and last link).
I remain comfortably agnostic about most aspects of the UFO question, up to and including the possibility that there are actual extraterrestrial or extradimensional beings zipping around our planet in technology our science cannot comprehend. But one thing I absolutely will take a hard and fast position on is that the moment the US government starts labeling something a threat, all trust and credulity must be immediately be thrown out the window.
This is after all occurring as the US enters a steadily escalating new cold war against both Russia and China, and we know that during the last cold war the CIA sought to exploit public panic about UFOs as a psychological weapon against the Soviets, and that the CIA has claimed that its newly developed spy planes were responsible for many UFO sightings in the 1950s, and that the US military was working on developing flying saucer aircraft during that same time. It also occurs after the assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logistics stated at a 2020 conference that the Air Force has a brand new aircraft prototype, designed using new digital engineering technology, that has broken a lot of records.
This new mainstream UFO narrative also has highly suspicious origins, with key players ranging from shady US intelligence cartel operatives like Lue Elizondo and Christopher Mellon, to corrupt senator Harry Reid and his plutocratic campaign donor Robert Bigelow, to Blink-182s Tom DeLonge, who believes humanity is being tormented by malevolent extraterrestrials who feed off negative human emotions and that the US military is heroically protecting us from their evil agendas. Filmmaker Steven Greenstreet put out a short, well-sourced documentary with The New York Post this past May laying out copious amounts of evidence that the groundwork for the new UFO narrative was built on journalistic malpractice and negligence, obfuscation, omission, and outright lies. The footage were being shown of these supposed vehicles to justify this new narrative consist of blurs, flashes and smudges which can all be explained by mundane phenomena.
So in my opinion this isnt a subject we can just ignore, as weird and uncomfortable as the subject of UFOs might be for serious analysts. Whatever the subject, when youve got the US government claiming on highly suspect grounds that theres an exponentially growing threat that urgently needs to be addressed militarily, its time to sit up and start paying attention.
