Senators call on DOD, intelligence community to implement unidentified anomalous phenomenon policies
Nearly 3 months after the U.S. military shot down an unidentified object over Lake Huron, details about its origin and intent remain unknown.
A spokesperson for the Senate Intelligence Committee told WCMU that Senators remain “deeply engaged on this topic.”
The committee chairs recently called for more action from the federal agency tasked with overseeing these types of events.
The Senators are calling on the Department of Defense and head of National Intelligence to implement the policies laid out in the latest defense bill.
Senators claim the new All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office has been slow to establish a secure way to interview witnesses and has not set up a secure public-facing website to allow witnesses to come forward with relevant information regarding unidentified anomalous phenomenon.
Senior Pentagon officials have said publicly that two of the objects shot down in February were not balloons.
But Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio said in a statement that Congress hasn’t been provided with any data or rationale to support this claim and that he’s been denied quote “critical information”
