This morning, the Senate Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities held a hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena, i.e. UFOs. The most newsworthy statement came from the director of the Pentagon’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, Sean Kirkpatrick, who told senators: “I should also state clearly for the record, that in our research AARO has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology, or objects that defy the known laws of physics.” Kirkpatrick made this statement after writing a paper with Galileo Project director Avi Loeb speculating that these same UFOs that show no evidence of extraterrestrial, physics-defying traits nevertheless could be probes sent by an alien “mothership.” After the hearing ended, members of the public watching the hearing offered Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, the driving force behind the Senate’s UFO efforts, stories about their own UFO interests and encounters, and one man gave her a copy of his UFO book.

No extraterrestrial activity? Have they checked out the ISS? Or the SUN?

Unfortunately their library cards were blocked for overdue abductees. And MAGA Republicans made them remove and all the books at MU in violation of CRT.
Where's the canned laughter ??

All that's missing is the canned-laughter. It's about time that people got the hint that Ufology is a quasi-religion and not a "scientific discipline" - it really belongs in the domain of pulp comic fiction of the 1950s and in the genre of The Outer Limits. It is disappointing to see that people in 2023 really need the same spiritual crutch as our ancestors who lived thousands of years ago,

Feel free to disagree, but for me, the bottom line is that our fellow citizens see phenomenon that they can not explain in any other way.

"Feel free to disagree"? Mighty white of you Chief.

When Kirkpatrick made that statement, thousands of Ufologists cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

Will this finally kick Gillibrand off her hobbyhorse? Not holding out much hope, but you never know.

Pah! Kirkpatrick is a fool. Has he not seen the old photograph of George Adamski’s immense cigar-shaped object and descending orbs? Clearly not of this earth!

Does anyone know if Bigfoot falls under the purview of AARO (All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office) ?

The ancient Romans used to see them, they called a flying unknown CLIPEUS, a word that translates as a battle SHIELD.
