US senators receive briefing on Navy UFOs

Three more senators have reportedly been briefed this week on Navy pilots encountering unidentified objects.
In a recent interview for ABC News, US President Donald Trump told George Stephanopoulos that he had been personally briefed on the matter of US Navy pilots reporting sightings of UFOs.

Now it turns out that three US senators including Sen. Mark Warner - vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee - received a similar briefing on Wednesday.

"If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that's a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of," Warner's spokesperson said in a statement.

Interest in UFOs has been on the rise ever since it was revealed that the Pentagon had been running the secretive Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) from 2007 to 2012.

The program was initiated by then US Senator Harry Reid - himself a vocal proponent of UFOs.

More recently, the revelation that multiple US Navy pilots have witnessed unidentified objects flying at impossible speeds - coupled with the US Navy's move to standardize UFO reporting - seems to indicate that UFOs are something that the US government is taking very seriously.

earl, in all due respects when bread crumbs are tossed on the water to see what mullet jump and you jump it is kind of like you are being lead by your nose...pick your battles saying the same thing once or 1000 times doesnt change its value.

Aurora.  The Blackbird was retired in the early '90s, brought back out for a couple of years by an act of congress, retired again mid 90's, used by NASA until 1999, then retired for the last time. In the meantime, a Bird had taken its place. Mack 5, allegedly. have a good one.

He should have been a lawyer to be honest..... And quite frankly I am tired of beating this horse....Everything has been laid out, we know what's what just some people keep it going post after post after post...It's a little aggravating to be honest. I say we agree to disagree and move on to something else.

i agree, they do exist even a balloon, a common object many times called a UFO is an intelligently construced craft,  well, keep right on jumping if it makes you happy, but i hate to break it to you most everyone here agrees that some UFOs are intelligently constructed craft, lots of things get called "UFO".

Please provide any evidence that UFOs are sensitive. You wrote "especially in such sensitive areas as UFOS, and geezus do I mean sensitive" I don't believe you.

You can make up stories all you want. You can be like the radar operator Day. I see intelligently constructed craft all of the time. I just don't know what they are, which makes them UFOs for me. Then again the people I work with can easily identify them. The fact you couldn't identify something is as meaningless as the fact I am not able to identify the crafts.

Here is another laughable fallacy: The TTSA mockumentary is a product of a for profit entertainment company. Filming on government property be it in a national park or a military base requires the purchase of license. It requires a contract. It requires fees and following regulations. These claims of cooperation or dissemination are clearly arguments based on personal ignorance of the manner in which these agreements are carried out. Just as a person has a legal right to restrict or control filming, photography, and recording on their property the federal government has the same rights to cont... [More]
