Marco Rubio doubles down to finally solve the UFO mystery in the wake of the Chinese spy balloon scandal

FLORIDA Senator Marco Rubio remains committed to investigations to solve the ongoing UFO mysteries in the United States.

Questions about unidentified objects in American airspace have been heightened following February’s Chinese spy balloon scandal.

However, the Republican senator’s role in the matter began in 2020, when he served as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to The Hill.

It was then that he decided that the US government should produce a landmark Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) report.

Then, in 2021, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (DN.Y.) sponsored legislation that created a powerful UAP Analysis Bureau alongside other bipartisan lawmakers.

That same year, more strange UFO encounters were revealed in a bombastic Pentagon report.

Now Rubio and several other former presidential candidates are doubling their support redistribute funds for a “scientific plan” with the UAP.

The plan will reportedly allow further study of the seemingly advanced technology, which has been observed by members of the US military.

This doubling isn’t too surprising based on Rubio’s previous stance.

As The US Sun previously reported, the Florida senator also got a sneak peek at the 2021 Pentagon report.

It stated that while the existence of extraterrestrial life is debatable, all UFOs pose a major threat to national security.

“Men and women entrusted with defending our country report encounters with unidentified aircraft of superior capability,” Rubio said at the time.

“We cannot let the stigma surrounding UFOs prevent us from seriously investigating this. The forthcoming report is one step in that process, but it will not be the last.”

Rubio called for a plan to be drawn up for the analysis, which has led to the UAP’s progress so far.

“I want us to take it seriously and have a process for taking it seriously,” he declared in 2021.

“I want us to have a process to analyze the data every time it comes in. That there is a place where these are cataloged and constantly analyzed until we get answers.”

Questions arose and the mystery deepened in 2021 after a United States spy satellite snapped several photos of what officials called a “tic tac” shaped vehicle flying over a body of water.

After just a few hours of analysis, military intelligence personnel were able to link the UFO to an eerily similar incident in 2004.

At the time, four naval aviators caught the UFO in the sky, describing it as a “strange elongated object with no wings or engines” and explaining that it had maneuvered in a way they had never seen before.

The pilots reportedly briefed Congress on the situation, and other reports have been filed over the years noting oddly similar characteristics.

At the end of August 2022, the UAP received 366 new reports of UFOs over a 17-month period.

Along with the UFO footage released over the past two years and the 2004 encounter, the recent Chinese balloon scandal has only reinforced the view of Rubio and other lawmakers.


In February, several objects were shot down over United States and Canadian airspace, all described as surveillance balloons belonging to the Chinese government.

The first object was sighted in late January but was eventually shot down off the coast of South Carolina on February 4th.

Days later another appeared over Alaska and then a “cylindrical” object over Canada.

Then, on February 11, an “octagonal” object was shot down over Montana.

The US Sun has detailed the full timeline of events below:
