Today was the 2nd Congressional UFO / UAP hearing. Jimmy Church of Fade to Black radio and I discuss it before it starts, and give commentary once it is finished.
This was a small venue, with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand asking the director of ARRO, Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, about UAP and the mission, activities, oversight, and budget of his office.
The ALL-DOMAIN ANOMALY RESOLUTION OFFICE (ARRO) is a newly established office within the United States Department of Defense (DoD) that is focused on investigating and analyzing reports of anomalous phenomena across multiple domains, including air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace. This office is part of a broader effort by the DoD to better understand and address the potential threats posed by unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), as well as other anomalous events that may be related to national security concerns.
ARRO is tasked with coordinating efforts between different branches of the military to gather and analyze data on anomalous events, and it is also responsible for developing new technologies and strategies to improve the identification and tracking of these phenomena. The goal of this office is to better understand and address any potential threats posed by anomalous events, while also advancing our scientific understanding of the universe.
The establishment of the ARRO reflects the growing interest and concern among US government officials regarding anomalous phenomena, particularly UAP. As more reports of UAPs and other anomalous events continue to surface, it is likely that the ARRO will play an increasingly important role in investigating and addressing these phenomena.
There has been increased interest from the United States Government regarding unidentified flying objects (UFOs), which are also sometimes referred to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs). This interest has been driven by a number of factors, including reports of sightings by military personnel and the release of declassified footage that appears to show UFOs exhibiting advanced capabilities.
In 2020, the US Department of Defense established the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) to investigate and analyze reports of UAP. The UAPTF is tasked with improving understanding of UAP and their potential threats to national security, and it is also responsible for coordinating efforts between different branches of the military to gather and analyze data on UAP.
In addition, there have been calls for congressional hearings to further investigate these phenomena. In June 2021, the Senate Intelligence Committee requested a report from the Director of National Intelligence on UAP, which was released later that month. The report found that the majority of UAP were likely physical objects, but that their origin and nature were still unknown.
In November 2021, a public hearing was held by the House Armed Services Committee to discuss the UAP issue. The hearing featured testimonies from various experts, including former military personnel and researchers, and focused on the need for further investigation and research into these phenomena.
Overall, the interest of the US government in UFOs / UAP appears to be driven by concerns about potential threats to national security, as well as a desire to better understand these phenomena and their implications for our understanding of the universe.
