Congress Briefed On Classified UFO Sightings As Threat To Aviator Safety, Navy Says


 Members of Congress and their staffs were given classified briefings on unidentified flying objects by the U S. Navy with a focus on the potential threats to humans, a Navy spokesperson said Thursday  The briefings, held on Wednesday, reviewed “efforts to understand and identify these threats to the safety and security of our aviators,” Joseph Gradisher, spokesman for the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, told HuffPost in an email  “Navy officials will continue to keep interested Congressional members and staff informed,” Gradisher continued Follow-up discussions with “other interested staffers” were scheduled for later Thursday  Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was among those briefed, his office confirmed  “If pilots at Oceana or elsewhere are reporting flight hazards that interfere with training or put them in danger, then Senator Warner wants answers,” Rachel Cohen, a spokeswoman for his office, said “It doesn’t matter if it’s weather balloons, little green men, or something else entirely — we can’t ask our pilots to put their lives at risk unnecessarily ”  The Navy in April revised its rules on how military pilots report encounters with unidentified aircraft  Rather than dismissing the observations, the Navy now acknowledges there have been sightings of unauthorized and unidentified aircraft entering military-controlled ranges and airspace in recent years, Gradisher previously told Politico  Whether any of the sightings involve extraterrestrials remains up in the air.  It’s only been in recent years that the government has begun publicly acknowledging investigations into reported UFOs    The Defense Department acknowledged for the first time publicly in 2017 the existence of an Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program that investigates reports of unidentified flying objects The program was launched in 2007 with the help of then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), The New York Times reported   President Donald Trump, in a recent interview with ABC News, said he has also been briefed on unidentified aircraft sightings  “I did have one very brief meeting on it,” he said. “But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs Do I believe it? Not particularly.”  Still, this week’s briefings on Capitol Hill reflect rising congressional interest, several current and former officials told Politico    “More requests for briefings are coming in,” a current intelligence official told the outlet U.S. Navy Pilot Reported ‘Near Miss’ With UFO Off East Coast Multiple Pilots Report UFO: ‘We Saw A Bright Light And It Just Disappeared’ American Airlines Pilot Reports UFO With ‘Big Reflection’ 40,000 Feet Over Arizona Military Report: UFOs May Have Attempted Rendezvous With Giant Undersea Object Declassified Military Video Shows Fast-Moving UFO Tracked By Navy Fighter Pilots Download REAL LIFE REAL NEWS.
