UFOs have non-human origins and threats are increasing ‘exponentially', US Congress warns

Wait up, aliens.

Buried deep inside a U.S. Congressional report is an admission that not all unidentified flying objects (UFOs) have human origins and that the Intelligence Authorization Act for the upcoming fiscal year has allotted a budget for studying them, Vice Motherboard reported.

For years, the U.S. military and the government have attributed the sightings of strange lights or UFOs to highly classified projects. Very little can be revealed about these projects in the interests of "national security"; therefore, it was assumed that the unexplained sightings still have human origins.

UFO researcher Douglas Johnson has spotted what might as well be the first-ever admission from the U.S. government that specific UFO sightings have non-human origins, Vice said in its report.

What did the report say?

In 2021, a Pentagon report detailed over 100 sightings that it had investigated and said it needed more time and money to study phenomena that could not be explained with current scientific models. A video leaked last year showed a UFO flying seamlessly beneath the waves, which the Pentagon confirmed as authentic.

The recent Congressional report states that "cross-domain transmedium threats to the United States national security are expanding exponentially". As per Pentagon's definition, a cross-domain transmedium threat is one that can move from water to air to space in ways that we do not understand. The report also states that Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, the government's term for UFOs, will now be reclassified as Unidentified Aerospace-Undersea Phenomena.

Earlier in July, the Pentagon opened a new All-domain Anamoly Resolution Office (AARO) to investigate such threats. Further, Congress wants to distinguish between UFOs that have human origins and those that do not. Objects that are positively identified as human origins will then be passed to appropriate offices and will no longer be considered under the definition of aerospace-undersea phenomena.

The real question is, why now?

Now that Congress has given the Pentagon the resources it needs to investigate objects that have not been designed by humans, the real question is why has the U.S. government changed its public stance about UFO sightings?

Marik von Rennenkampff, an official who worked in the Pentagon during the Obama era, wrote in an op-ed piece that there seems to be now a bipartisan and unanimous opinion among members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that some UFOs do have non-human origins.

The fact that the U.S. government has now set up a complete department to look into the origins of these such objects is proof enough that they exist. The acknowledgment that the threats from these objects are now increasing 'exponentially' is also a big deal.

Whether this results in the possibility of more revelations from the government in the coming years or another bureaucratic setup that will withhold information remains to be seen.

If you have been a proponent of the alien theory for UFO sightings, you are now aligned with the government's stance on this.
