Unidentified flying objects can pose problems for the national security of the United States, according to a published report of the country’s national intelligence service.
“UFOs can be a challenge to US national security. The primary concern is that pilots are dealing with increasingly congested airspace,” the document says.
The report notes 144 cases of alleged UFO sightings that could not be properly explained. At the same time there are no unequivocal conclusions about the nature of these phenomena and studying them, as noted in the document, will take more time, a more systematic approach, and substantial funds. This is the first UFO report in half a century to be released by US Intelligence at the request of Congress.
Earlier, the press secretary of the White House Jen Psaki stated that the US authorities took seriously the information about the sightings of unidentified flying objects in the country’s airspace. Each such case is carefully studied, she said.
Last August, the Pentagon announced the creation of a special working group for studying UFOs. Its tasks were to detect, analyze and compile a list of UFOs that could potentially threaten US national security.
