THE PENTAGON is opening a new office to investigate UFOs – but not everyone is convinced by the idea.
American officials contracted the group of UFO experts late last year.
It is designed to detect and identify UFOs, some of which could be considered a threat to national security.
Specialized units are called Anomaly Monitoring and Resolution Office (ARSO).
It will probe to see if the strange vehicle has been reported to make noise for the US military unidentified technology from Russia and China or potentially something more outlandish.
But some think Pentagon’s new UFO office won’t change anything.
Critics have warned that the government will only hide any major finds – and that UFO investigations have been going on for years anyway.
Mutual UFO Network spokesman Ron James warned that the public is unlikely to find any evidence of extraterrestrial interference.
James told NBC.
“And anything that lacks a new openness to information will be more censored, possibly inappropriate.”
James added: “We do not see that this means that new resources will be dedicated to this issue.
“We believe that substantial resources have always been devoted to this issue at some level within government and industry.”
And US Congressman Tim Burchett tweeted in response to the news with harsh criticism.
“We should never trust the Pentagon,” said Congressman Knoxville, Tennessee.
“They will never tell us the whole story of the UFO problem.”
Others have praised the law.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand led the introduction of the new measure and said it was vital to the safety of US citizens.
“Our national security efforts rely on air supremacy, and these phenomena present a challenge to our dominance,” the senator said.
“The United States needs a concerted effort to control and understand whether these aerial phenomena belong to a foreign government or something else entirely.”
The office will be created jointly between the Department of Defense and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the key relationship between the intelligence community and the military.
UFOs have gone from being a trifling issue and the realm of conspiracy theorists into a real national security debate over the past few years.
ARSO will seek to investigate the “specifications and operations, origins and intentions” of UFOs.
The UFO Office will have the power to dispatch X-Files-esque teams to enable “rapid response” and “scene investigation” of UFOs.
It will also provide a summary of “any attempt to capture or exploit” the phenomena and also assess the “related health effects” of those who have encountered the objects.
Details of these UFO “catch or exploit” efforts are not available – and it’s unclear exactly what this refers to as it lists the phrase in what will be included in the annual report before the National Assembly. festival.
The office will also aggregate connections between UFOs and nuclear weapons – something suspected of being a major hotspot for anything in the sky.
The terms “alien” or “alien” were not mentioned in the lengthy revision, which was tabulated by Democratic lawmaker Kirsten Gillibrand and backed by the Republican Party heavyweight. – and potential presidential candidate – Marco Rubio.
However, the office will acknowledge the “intermediate” nature of the phenomena – objects appear to move between space, Earth’s atmosphere and even under the sea.
Multiple reports say UFOs have been witnessed emerging from or plunging into the ocean – sparking speculation about a connection between the objects and the ocean.
And some of the most famous encounters, such as The USS Nimitz Incident, UFO sightings were seen by pilots near American warships.
Lue Elizondo, the leader Former Pentagon UFO Investigation Unit AATIP – which disbanded in 2017 – welcomes the move.
“This historic bill is not only good for the American people, it is a bill that history will show benefit the world,” he told The Sun Online.
Mr. Elizondo added that he is currently in Washington DC assisting with the amendment, along with former intelligence official Christopher Mellon.
It comes after top US spy chief Avril Haines – DNI – admitted that mysterious agencies were looking into intelligence services could come from outer space.
The Pentagon’s landmark report on objects released over the summer – now commonly known as Unknown Aerial Phenomena (UAP) – acknowledges something unknown in the sky .
ARSO will issue annual reports on the matter until at least 2026 which will have both classified and unclassified sections to Congress.
It would dissolve the UAP Task Force temporarily created in response to the Pentagon report released in June.
ARSO will develop standardized procedures for reporting and investigating UFOs to enable the United States to understand what it is dealing with.
The office will also create a centralized database of UFO encounters.
And perhaps importantly, it will “assess the threat such incidents pose to the United States” while also consulting with its allies.
Gillibrand’s amendment – as well as being endorsed by Rubio – was also endorsed by Democratic senator Martin Heinrich and Republican lawmakers Lindsey Graham and Roy Blunt.
