(JustPatriots.com)- Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) are no longer just a pseudo-science curiosity or the focus of science fiction stories, but an undeniable reality. And Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, knows just how big a problem this phenomena poses to the United States military.
On Monday, Rubio discussed the topic with TMZ at Washington, DC’s Reagan National Airport, revealing at the U.S. government has absolutely no idea what’s going on, or where the objects come from.
“There’s stuff flying over military installations and no one knows what it is, and it isn’t ours,” he said.
“So for me, that’s logical. You want to know what it is. It’s just common sense. 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 what it is and tell us,” he added.
It’s important to note that while the term “UFO” is typically used to refer to a spacecraft from beyond this earth, the fact that the U.S. government doesn’t know what these objects are means that they may still be an earthly phenomenon. The crafts are also more often called “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.”
The TMZ reporter asked Rubio about China, which is a growing threat to the United States in terms of both economic prowess and military power, and then asked if the U.S. should also be thinking about threats from beyond the earth.
“I would take it one step at a time,” Rubio said. “You know what I mean. I’m not saying that’s what it’s all about. Like I told you, I don’t know the answer to what it is. But it’s stuff that’s there.”
In 2019, the pilot who saw the famous Tic Tac UFO – a craft that descended from 50,000 feet to 100 feet within seconds – broke his silence on the story. Chad Underwood described the shocking scenes he witnessed over the Pacific Ocean, with a craft that looked like a “tic tac” not behaving “within the normal laws of physics.”
TMZ asked Rubio if, as a member of the intel committee, he is told what is going on, to which he responded that he believes they do tell him what they know. Rubio added that even the military officials don’t know what’s happening.
He even speculated that aliens must be smarter than humans, showing just how seriously elected officials now take the idea of extra-terrestrial life.
“If they made it all the way here, they probably are, yeah. If they can get here and we can’t get there, that tells you they’re more advanced. But I don’t know if there are aliens. I don’t know if they’ve ever visited. When you talk about that stuff, everybody gets all stigmatized about it. No one wants to sound weird. My stuff is very simple. We don’t know what that stuff is that’s flying over the top of our installations. Let’s find out. Maybe it’s another country and that would be bad news, too,” Rubio added.
