What this has to do with a “COVID bill”, we have no idea. But apparently, the 5,593-page December 27, 2020 bill, signed by then-President Donald Trump, included in it a rarely discussed section in a “committee comment” that tells the CIA, the FBI, the Pentagon, and any other spy agencies they have 180 days to provide the public with documents regarding UFOs.

The Intelligence Authorization Act, which is produced annually, says about UFO sightings or Advanced Aerial Threats: “The Committee supports the efforts of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force at the Office of Naval Intelligence to standardize collection and reporting on unidentified aerial phenomenon, any links they have to adversarial foreign governments, and the threat they pose to U.S. military assets and installations. However, the Committee remains concerned that there is no unified, comprehensive process within the Federal Government for collecting and analyzing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat. 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. Therefore, the Committee directs the DNI, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of such other agencies as the Director and Secretary jointly consider relevant, to submit a report within 180 days of the date of enactment of the Act, to the congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena (also known as “anomalous aerial vehicles”), including observed airborne objects that have not been identified.”

The CIA has released over 2,700 pages of documents that detail UFO incidents beginning from the 1940s going up to the early 1990s since the 180-day requirement was signed into motion. Their entire collection, to this point, can be accessed here, though have patience, it can be hard to parse through.


By itself, the annual Intelligence Authorization Act is a lengthy read, but also included in it are eight directives from the Committee regarding UFO sightings which include:

  1. A detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence reporting collected or held by the Office of Naval Intelligence, including data and intelligence reporting held by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force;
  2. A detailed analysis of unidentified phenomena data collected by: a. geospatial intelligence; b. signals intelligence; c. human intelligence; and d. measurement and signals intelligence;
  3. A detailed analysis of data of the FBI, which was derived from investigations of intrusions of unidentified aerial phenomena data over restricted United States airspace;
  4. A detailed description of an interagency process for ensuring timely data collection and centralized analysis of all unidentified aerial phenomena reporting for the Federal Government, regardless of which service or agency acquired the information;
  5. Identification of an official accountable for the process described in paragraph 4;
  6. Identification of potential aerospace or other threats posed by the unidentified aerial phenomena to national security, and an assessment of whether this unidentified aerial phenomena activity may be attributed to one or more foreign adversaries;
  7. Identification of any incidents or patterns that indicate a potential adversary may have achieved breakthrough aerospace capabilities that could put United States strategic or conventional forces at risk;
  8. Recommendations regarding increased collection of data, enhanced research and development, and additional funding and other resources.

The release of all these documents comes on the heels of the Department of Defense confirming the existence of UFOs when they were pretty much forced to after footage was leaked showing Navy pilots and their encounter with a UFO. The DoD felt they needed to declassify and release the footage themselves, according to a Pentagon spokesperson, in order “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real or whether or not there is more to the videos.”

The UFO videos in question are FLIR1, Gimbal, and GoFast. Retired Cmdr. David Fravor told ABC News about his 2014 encounter seen on the Gimbal video, “I can tell you, I think it was not from this world. I’m not crazy, haven’t been drinking. It was — after 18 years of flying, I’ve seen pretty much about everything that I can see in that realm, and this was nothing close. I have never seen anything in my life, in my history of flying that has the performance, the acceleration — keep in mind this thing had no wings.”

The videos, if you haven’t seen them, are amazing to watch and one can only speculate what you are seeing. If those videos aren’t enough for you, take a look at the cube-shaped UFO the government recently released. Then again, you can also take a gander at the glowing UFO that was spotted in the sky over Hawaii.

With the new 180-day requirement now in effect, we may finally get the answer to that long-pondered question – “Are we alone?”
