Senators get classified briefing on UFO sightings

Three more U.S. senators received a classified Pentagon briefing on Wednesday about a series of reported encounters by the Navy with unidentified aircraft, according to congressional and government officials — part of a growing number of requests from members of key oversight committees.

One of them was Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, whose office confirmed the briefing to POLITICO.
“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” his spokesperson, Rachel Cohen, said in a statement.
The interest in “unidentified aerial phenomenon” has grown since revelations in late 2017 that the Pentagon had set up a program to study the issue at the request of then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Officials interviewed multiple current and former sailors and aviators who claim to have encountered highly advanced aircraft that appeared to defy the laws of aerodynamics when they intruded on protected military airspace — some of which were captured on video and made public.
The Navy has played a prominent role in light of the testimony of F/A-18 pilots and other personnel operating with the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier battle group off California in 2004 and the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the Atlantic in 2015 and 2016.
The growing congressional interest is credited for playing a major role in the service’s recent decision to update the procedures for pilots and other personnel to report such unexplained sightings, which POLITICO first reported in April.
“In response to requests for information from Congressional members and staff, Navy officials have provided a series of briefings by senior Naval Intelligence officials as well as aviators who reported hazards to aviation safety,” the service said in a statement to POLITICO at the time.
The Navy had no immediate comment on Wednesday, and few details of the latest secret sessions were available.

The 88,000-tonne US aircraft carrier, carrying nearly 5,000 sailors, arrived in the Solent having spent the last five months supporting ground forces in Afghanistan.
They come several days after President Donald Trump told ABC News that he, too, had been briefed on the reports. “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.”
But several current and former officials with direct knowledge describe the Capitol Hill briefing as the latest for members of Congress and their staff representing the Intelligence, Armed Services and Defense Appropriations panels.
“There are people coming out of the woodwork,” said one former government official who has participated in some of the meetings.
A current intelligence official added: “More requests for briefings are coming in.”
The sessions have been organized by the Navy but have also included staff from the under secretary of Defense for Intelligence, the sources said. Both were not authorized to talk publicly about the briefings.
Advocates for giving the mystery greater attention say they hope Congress will take more formal steps, such as requiring the Department of Defense to collect and complete a detailed analysis of data collected by satellites and other means of unidentified craft intruding into military airspace or operating under the sea.

Just listened to the Joe Rogan podcast with Bob Lazar that came out this week. The guy who claims to have worked on UFO technology in an "Area 51" adjacent lab.

Wild stuff. He is either telling the truth or he is pulling off one hell of a con job. I honestly kind of hope he's lying.

Guardians of the Galaxy had it for defense. Guess that's Racist too.....
This was a story line Marvel started writing in the 60's and through the early 70's...at a time when Racial tensions were high in the US. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the story written wasn't influenced to some degree of that era of Racial tensions....but the story does fit the modern narrative quite well

The Kree are a Technocratic society ruled by an Supreme Artificial Intelligence hell bent on the acquisition of knowledge and technology

The Skrull are Religious fanatics who believe Earth was given them them by their Almighty God as their Promised Land to replaced their destroyed home world and believe their God has anointed them to kill anyone who stands between them and their promised lands

The Kree-Skrull war which is older than humans begin when a delegation sent by the Govt of the Skrull's was sent to the Kree home world in an attempt to create a relationship between the two when the Kree attacked and killed the delegation and stole all the technology they had brought with them to negotiate with.

Depends on who's in the white house at the time, the Dems would pass some kind of sugar welfare bill and then spend the next century telling the aliens that the heartless Reps want to take away your sugar.
