US officials have asked the Pentagon to provide a full, unclassified report on the UFO phenomenon.
Following on from the recent release of declassified US Navy videos of pilots pursuing UAPs (or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), Florida Sen. Marco Rubio - acting chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee - has asked intelligence agency heads to compile together all currently available information on the topic of UFOs.
"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," the request reads.
"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."
If the bill passes the Senate, the report will need to be provided within 180 days.
UFO researcher Nick Pope, who famously investigated UFO reports for the British Ministry of Defense from 1991 to 1994, believes that this request stems from the fact that the senators were "disturbed" by what they had heard during a UFO briefing that was conducted last year.
"I welcome this long-overdue development," he told Fox News
"It suggests that those senators who received last year's classified briefing on UFOs were disturbed by it and weren't satisfied with the current DOD position, i.e. simply stating that the mystery objects encountered by naval aviators remain unidentified."
