Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Florida) said on Monday that there have been several instances in which unidentified planes have flown directly over U.S. military bases and the government still has no idea what or what they were. who exploited them.
“There is stuff flying over military installations and nobody knows what it is and it’s not ours,” Rubio, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told TMZ in an impromptu interview at Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Virginia.
“So for me it makes sense [that] you want to know what it is, “the senator continued.” I mean, that’s common sense, isn’t it? If things are flying over your most sensitive facilities and it’s not ours and no one knows who they belong to, you should find out what it is and tell us. “
He added that there might be a “logical explanation”, but it’s just that at this point no one knows.
“It might be another country, and that would be bad news too,” he said.
In its report on the interview, TMZ said: “Our intention was for a light conversation, but Rubio has gone dead-a ** serious about the potential danger the United States faces from an unidentified aircraft flying over our military installations. “
The senator’s concern likely dovetails with that of most Americans after finding out the government knew of quite a few more instances unexplained aerial phenomena that we had not previously understood. This information, however, is expected to be shared with the public at some point before the end of the summer.
Former President Donald Trump enacted a law in December that requires US spy agencies and the Pentagon to disclose what they know on UFOs to the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services Committees within 180 days.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe last Friday previewed the next report by confirming that “there are many more observations than those which have been made public”.
He noted that officials tried to find a “plausible solution” for the UFO sightings, but admitted “there are cases where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things we saw.”
Discussions of UFO sightings have been in the news lately, especially since the Pentagon announced it had formed a working group to investigate documented cases of unidentified aerial phenomena. This announcement followed the verification by the Ministry of Defense of the authenticity of the three videos showing encounters between military pilots and UFOs.
