Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is leading the charge for defense and intelligence agencies to reveal data on UFO sightings. During an interview on “60 Minutes” Sunday night, the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee said lawmakers are beginning to shake off the taboo associated with the subject.
In December, Rubio began calling for a detailed analysis on what the government knows about UFOs after being briefed through classified reports.
“Anything that enters an airspace, that’s not supposed to be there, is a threat…I want us to take it seriously and have a process to take it seriously,” stated the senator. “I want to have a process to analyze the data every time it comes in…there be a place where this is cataloged and constantly analyzed until we get some answers.”
The Pentagon and Director of National Intelligence are expected to present a declassified report on UFO sightings to Congress next month.
