Pentagon's UFO office will not investigate 'man-made' UFOs

The US government's UFO office only seems to be interested in investigating objects of potentially extraterrestrial origin.
Back in July, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence approved a new draft bill which essentially redefined the term UFO (unidentified flying object) to mean "unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena" - thus expanding (and simultaneously refining) its definition to better represent the types of objects reported by US Navy pilots off the coast of the United States over the last few years.
What's interesting, however, is what this new definition could mean for the US government's new UFO office.
The term "aerospace-undersea phenomena" refers to what are otherwise known as "transmedium" objects which are defined, according to lawmakers, as objects which "transition between space and the atmosphere, or between the atmosphere and bodies of water."
Such objects would seem exotic by their very nature, but according to reports, this definition also seems to explicitly exclude reports of objects known to be man-made, which - according to the directive - should be "passed to appropriate [DoD] offices."
In other words, the UFO office doesn't seem to be interested in looking into anything thought to have been built by humans.
The implications of this, if true, are striking, as they imply that government officials are operating under the assumption that these "transmedium objects" are likely to be extraterrestrial in nature.
Given their alleged capabilities, it's certainly not outside the realms of possibility that this is indeed the case.
