Lawmakers in the Senate Intelligence Committee are moving forward with a request that would order the Defense Department and U.S. Intelligence agencies to create a public, unclassified, collection of all information and data on “unidentified aerial phenomenon,” also known as unidentified flying objects, UFOs.
According to The NY Post, Senators recognized the existence of a “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force” and the need for a comprehensive analysis of unidentified flying objects.
“In his report attached to the 2020-2021 Senate Intelligence Authorization Act, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, acting chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, instructs the director of national intelligence, the secretary of defense and other agency heads to compile data on ‘unidentified aerial phenomenon,'” according to The Post.
Rubio and his committee expressed concern about not having a concentrated analysis of these objects — especially since it could pose a national security threat. The lawmakers agreed the findings should be public.
“The Committee understands that the relevant intelligence may be sensitive; nevertheless, the Committee finds that the information sharing and coordination across the Intelligence Community has been inconsistent, and this issue has lacked attention from senior leaders,” the report reads.
According to Politico, if passed, the Intelligence Agencies would have 180 days to craft a report for the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense.
This decision follows the Pentagon releasing videos of these objects two months ago.
As previously reported on this news site, The Pentagon released three unclassified videos showing the U.S. Navy’s encounters with “unidentified aerial phenomena” on April 27.
“The U.S. Navy previously acknowledged that these videos circulating in the public domain were indeed Navy videos. After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,” DOD said in a statement.
The provision passed today will move to the Senate for a vote and potentially lead to greater public knowledge on UFOs.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’
The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”
The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”
An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.
In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.
Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”
As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”
Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
