A new bill is being introduced to the senate by. Sen. Marco Rubio , as part of the Senate Intelligence Authorization Act. Is calling for the director of national intelligence, the secretary of defense and other agency heads to compile data on “unidentified aerial phenomenon,” more commonly referred to as unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. Sen Mark Rubio is the acting chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
lawmakers are asking the Pentagon for a unclassified report on unidentified aerial phenomena. Stating concerns over the lack of attention from the intelligence community even though confirming the existence of UFOs or “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force.”
the Bill states, “The Committee remains concerned that there is no unified, comprehensive process within the Federal Government for collecting and analyzing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat,”
It continues on stating,“The Committee understands that the relevant intelligence may be sensitive; nevertheless, the Committee finds that the information sharing and coordination across the Intelligence Community has been inconsistent, and this issue has lacked attention from senior leaders,”
The committee report also acknowledges the “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force,” a body that has been alluded to but never confirmed. The bill calls on the task force to report if any UFOs pose a threat to the U.S. military or have links to foreign governments.
The bill also gives several requests, including a description of the process by which each agency compiles and delivers data and analysis of all UFOs to the federal government and identify potential aerospace or other threats posed by UFOs to national security,
