The US Congress is holding its first public hearing on UFO’s in over fifty years. Yesterday, Scott Bray, the deputy director of naval intelligence, told the hearing that there are sightings he can’t explain owing to the flight characteristics or radar readings from the objects.
According to The Telegraph:
The US military has had 11 close encounters with UFOs, a top Pentagon intelligence official has told Congress.
In the first public hearing of its kind for over half a century, intelligence chiefs revealed they had recorded around 400 UFO sightings in total.
That figure has more than doubled in the last year as reduced stigma led to a flood of reports from military personnel about historic events.
Senior Pentagon officials said no evidence of extraterrestrial origins had been discovered so far, but they vowed to “go wherever the data takes us” in an “all hands on deck” approach.
Scott Bray, the deputy director of naval intelligence, told the hearing there were sightings he “can’t explain” due to the “flight characteristics” or radar readings from the objects.
He showed a video of one such incident, in which a fleeting, shiny, spherical object zipped past the cockpit of an F-18 jet.
Asked if there had been any collisions between “US assets” and UFOs, he said: “We have not had a collision, we’ve had at least 11 near misses though.”
I’m always mindful of my late, great friend Jim Marrs when I read stories like this.
Jim wrote Alien Agenda, one of, if not the best-selling books on ufology. It is a terrific read.
Jim believed that at some time in the near future, a government or governments, would stage a fake alien invasion. He spoke of it often on The Richie Allen Show.
He said that such an event would be preceded by the world’s intelligence agencies seemingly becoming more open and transparent about previous encounters.
I don’t know much about it, but Jim Marrs was no dummy. He was a fantastic journalist and author.
I miss the man every day.
