Capitol Hill lawmakers said Wednesday that UFOs could pose an urgent threat to America’s national security as police emerged from a highly classified briefing with Navy and FBI officials about the inexplicable phenomena.
Prior to the release of a highly anticipated Pentagon report on unidentified objects in flight before the end of the month, members of the House Intelligence Committee were given a secret preview in a SCIF or “sensitive intelligence facility”.
UNCLASSIFIED UFO FINDINGS WE DISCOVER INTEL COMMUNITY CANNOT EXPLAIN AERIAL OBJECTS: REPORT
As for the existence of extraterrestrial life, lawmakers largely left the secrets in the surveillance-safe room and refused to tell reporters what they learned.
However, some expressed concerns that the UFOs – which could be controlled by America’s foreign adversaries, in a possible explanation that is only slightly less terrifying than the vanguard of an alien invasion – could pose a threat to national security.
“We take the problem of inexplicable aerial phenomena seriously, as far as the safety of US military personnel or the national security interests of the United States is concerned, so we want to know what we are dealing with.” said Rep Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY).
“I think it’s important to understand that there are legitimate questions about the safety of our staff, our operations, and our sensitive activities, and we all know it’s there [a] Diffusion of technology out there, “he continued.” We need to understand space a little better. “
Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.) Added: “You know that it is always about our security – our national security is [priority] Number one – and that is really the area we really focused on this morning. “
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), The chair of the committee, hinted the briefing was eye-opening but also declined to go into details before a public report was released.
“It was an interesting briefing,” he said. “I’ve learned things that were certainly new to me. But I think I’ll leave it at that.”
Rep. Andre Carson (R-Ill.), Who led the UFO investigation effort, said Americans should expect a possible public hearing on the results of the report.
“We look forward to having a public hearing at some point,” he said. “I mean, there are some national security concerns that we want to address.”
Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) Said that, if anything, the landmark report shows that UFOs are finally being taken seriously.
“The stigma is gone,” he said. “This is as big a change in politics as I’ve seen in my life on the subject. The fact that they are taking this seriously for the first time is important in my opinion.”
Regarding the 1997 science fiction film “Contact” – adapted from a Carl Sagan novel – Quigley admitted that the report will not contain all the answers and that some things will remain inexplicable.
“What do you say in ‘Contact’? Occam’s razor,” he said. “I still think that’s real and there are things we can’t explain.”

But with so many secrets of the universe still beyond human comprehension, Quigley warned Americans not to look to the report.
“If I had to predict how the public would react, one word would be ‘disappointing’,” he said.
A clearly unimpressed Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) Added: “I’m not on the edge of my seat.”
