A CONGRESSMAN has advanced a conspiracy theory that allegedly involves salvaged UFO technology that may be “in the process of being reverse engineered.”
Tennessee Congressman Tim Burchett believes “we eventually recovered a vehicle and possible beings,” but we don’t “understand” their technology.
Four objects were shot down over North America in early February, all in quick succession, with the first identified by the Pentagon as a Chinese surveillance balloon shot down off the coast of South Carolina.
China has denied the allegations, saying instead that the balloon was a civilian airship.
The other three objects – shot down over Alaska, Canada and Lake Huron, Michigan respectively – have not yet been revealed by the Department of Defense.
The White House said on February 14 that intelligence officers “consider as a leading explanation that these may be associated with commercial or research facilities and be harmless.”
President Joe Biden added on Feb. 16 that “these three objects were most likely balloons tied to private corporations, recreational or research facilities studying the weather or conducting other scientific research.”
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that there was “no evidence of extraterrestrial activity or extraterrestrial activity,” adding that she “wanted to make sure the American people knew.”
Still, the unidentified objects have fueled renewed speculation about what UFOs might be and what potential risks they might pose.
It’s not just politicians like Burchett who subscribe to these theories.
In a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, award-winning director Steven Spielberg told the writer and TV host that “it’s mathematically impossible that we’re the only intelligent species in the cosmos.”
“I think what’s come out lately is fascinating,” Spielberg added.
After a secret briefing on the objects last month, Louisiana Senator John Kennedy said it “is clear to me that this is not a new phenomenon” and urged reporters to “lock the doors tonight.”
In an interview with Newsweek, Burchett told the outlet that there is likely to be an increase in reported UFO sightings in the future.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a report on UFOs, or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), back in January.
A total of 510 UAP sightings were recorded in 2022 – a jump of 366 since the previously published report.
Over half of the sightings were classified as “unremarkable,” while the remaining 1,717 sightings “appear to have demonstrated unusual flight characteristics or performance and require further analysis,” the report said.
However, Ronald Moultrie, undersecretary for intelligence and security, said on Dec. 16, 2022, that US intelligence had encountered nothing “that would lead us to believe that any of the objects we saw are extraterrestrial in origin.”
