In the News…

Representative André Carson of Indiana said that he wants Congress to conduct hearings on purported sightings of UFOs in the wake of a Pentagon report examining the so-called “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAPs).

Congressman Carson, who is chair of the subcommittee on counterintelligence and counterproliferation on the House Intelligence Committee, said it is his hope there will be a series of hearings, including one that is public, in the near future.

“The report is inconclusive. What we do know is that… there have been nearly 150 sightings. Eighty of those sightings have been detected with some of the best technology the world has ever seen,” Representative Carson said. “And we can’t rule out something that’s otherworldly, but that’s a very small percentage.” He said the objects pose a technical and national security concern and called it “curious” that many of the sightings have occurred around military installations.

“If it is otherworldly, we have to take into account our advancements in terms of our cell phone technology and why aren’t these images being captured?” Carson continued. “We have to think about the nearly 4,000 satellites that are orbiting the earth right now. Most of those satellites have cameras attached to them. Why hasn’t any of that information been released? And so we still want to make sure that our adversaries don’t have a technological edge on us, but we still can’t rule out that 2-6% that could be something we can’t explain, maybe even otherworldly.”

Asked if he believes life exists beyond Earth, the congressman said it would be “arrogant to say that there isn’t life out there.”.
