It's happening.

Members of the House Intelligence Committee received a classified briefing with FBI and U.S. Navy officials to discuss what some lawmakers have dubbed a threat to national security, according to an initial CNN report: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).

We also call them UFOs, but whatever your preference, this briefing could lead to a congressional hearing the likes of which hasn't reached Capitol Hill in decades.

While sightings of unidentified objects climbed into the hundreds, the Pentagon racked itself on the question of how much time and material it should commit to finding answers. CNN reviewed interviews with six officials that sketched a bitter struggle to upgrade UFOs "from the world of science fiction and consider its actual national security implications." The briefing went forward inside a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF).

 

After the briefing, New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney said he and his peers "take the issue of unexplained aerial phenomena seriously to the extent that we're dealing with the safety and security of U.S. military personnel or the national security interests of the United States," according to a report from The Debrief. "So we want to know what we're dealing with." We really can't overemphasize the fact that, despite decades of infighting and bureaucratic stonewalling and pressure from and within the Pentagon, the United States Government is finally taking the question of UFOs seriously.
