US Senator Pushes ‘Urgent’ Bipartisan Proposal to Create UFO Investigation Agency

Sputnik/Moscow: If the efforts led by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) end in success, the United States government could welcome a new bureau – the “Anomaly Surveillance and Resolution Office” – entirely dedicated to investigating “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAP), or UFOs.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), along with several other sponsors from both the Democratic and Republican parties, has rolled out a proposal to create an expansive intelligence programme to investigate UFOs, saying that the need for such an initiative is “urgent”.

“We’ve not had oversight into this area for a very long time”, Gillibrand said as cited by Politico. “I can count on one hand the number of hearings I had in 10 years on this topic. That’s fairly concerning given the experience our service members have had over the last decade”.

She referred to a number of alleged UFO or UAP sightings reported by the Navy and Air Force that prompted not only curiosity but also concerns as to whether they may pose any kind of threat.

Gillibrand advocates an amendment to the 2022 National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) that would envisage the creation of a separate bureau dedicated entirely to probing such sightings and determining whether they can be considered evidence of extraterrestrial life or a threat from adversaries. The bureau would be called the “Anomaly Surveillance and Resolution Office”, or ASRO.

“If it is technology possessed by adversaries or any other entity, we need to know”, Gillibrand said, commenting on the initiative. “Burying our heads in the sand is neither a strategy nor an acceptable approach”.

According to Gillibrand, the initiative has already received bipartisan support – from Republicans Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, and Roy Blunt, as well as fellow Democrat Martin Heinrich.
This is not the first public effort to ramp up investigations into UAPs in the United States. In 2020, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAP TF) was created within the Department of Defence in order to pursue tasks similar to those posed for ASRO.
However, a final report released in June of this year turned out to be “largely inconclusive” to the frustration of many UFO enthusiasts.
“The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP”, the report said.
It is expected that ASRO, should it be created, will roll out both classified and unclassified reports on its findings every six months. Gillibrand’s amendment also envisages the body assembling experts from NASA, the FAA, the National Academies of Sciences, the head of the Galileo Project at Harvard University, the director of the Optical Technology Centre at Montana State University, the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies, and the American Institute of Astronautics and Aeronautics.

  1. Recently the same Avril Haines, the director of national intelligence, she did admit the possibility of aliens when discussing UFO sightings during a recent forum at the “Our Future in Space” event at the Washington National Cathedral.

    • See if you can find some of my earlier writings or radio appearances on this subject.

      If i do new ones…i face sanctions

    • G. sounds like you believe there’s something behind the hidden door.
      Is it good, or is it bad?
      Someone once told me “best not to believe anything.”

    • Please watch American Horror and their Eisenhower/UFO series…maybe 3 or 4 shows this year…

      find them wherever

      they do some mixed truth telling that opens doors

    • Next thing we know, David Icke will be addressing a joint session of Congress. Which could actually be pretty humorous. I mean the worst human being on the planet (who may actually be some type of alien) was invited to straighten us out about the real history of Israel. Or whatever it really is as the landing site for lizardly demons.
