Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told a reporter this week that he is concerned about UFOs, or unidentified flying objects, flying over U.S. military bases. And he called on security officials to issue reports about them.
In an unusual interview at Reagan National Airport near Washington, Rubio demanded answers to reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) “flying over military installations” in the United States, Fox News reported.
“For me, there’s stuff flying over military installations and no one knows what it is, and it isn’t ours,” Rubio said. “If stuff’s flying over the top of your most sensitive installations, and it’s not ours, and no one knows whose it is—you should find out who it is, and tell us.”
Rubio is the vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and was its chairman before Democrats took over the White House this year.
Rubio’s remarks come just as it was announced that the Pentagon and intelligence agencies are scheduled to release a report on UFOs in June.
The reporter asked the Rubio whether aliens from outer space or the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) pose a greater threat to the United States.
“There’s stuff flying over the top of our military installations and they don’t know who’s flying it, they don’t even know what it is,” Rubio responded. “So that’s a problem. We need to find out if we can.”
The $2.3 trillion appropriations bill enacted by former President Trump in late December incorporated an extraordinary sum of money for “advanced aerial threat” investigations, through which security agencies were asked that in 180 days they should submit a report to Congress on all “observed aerial objects that have not been identified.”
Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Friday, March 19, that the U.S. military and intelligence apparatus has been on the lookout for UFOs, which are taking concrete actions that current technology cannot explain.
Ratcliffe is the highest-ranking former U.S. official to publicly acknowledge the possibility of advanced intelligence outside our solar system. During the interview the former official assured Bartiromo, “There are many more sightings than have been made public.”
“When we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain,” Ratcliffe explained.
Wow. Maria Bartiromo gets former DNI John Ratcliffe to talk about UFOs ahead a deadline for the government to disclose what it knows about them…

No one has yet been able to say with certainty what they are or where these unidentified flying objects come from, some experts insinuate that they come from other planets with intelligent life, others accuse enemy armies that are studying the movements and U.S. military bases, what is undeniable is their existence and that if the authorities know what they are, they have not made it public so far.
