Tim Burchett calls UFO hearing a ‘joke’ and claims wreckage has been recovered

US Congressman Tim Burchett has called the UFO hearing that took place on May 17 a “total joke.”

Burchett’s comments were made in a tweet shortly after the House Subcommittee hearing on government investigations into unidentified flying objects (UFOs). It was the first meeting of its kind in more than 50 years.

“The UFO hearing this morning was a total joke,” Burchett said after the meeting. “We should have heard from people who could talk about things they’d seen in person, but instead the witnesses were government officials with limited knowledge who couldn’t really answer serious questions.”

Prior to the meeting, Burchett also claimed that wreckage of UFOs flying over the US had been recovered. He told the sun online that “several sources” had informed him of the fact, but did not elaborate further.

The congressman has previously called for greater government transparency in their investigation of UFOs or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) — a term more commonly used by government officials.

While UFO sightings can easily be dismissed for lack of evidence, the meeting was held on Monday after the topic became one of national security.

This comes after a series of incidents where pilots reported “near misses” involving UAPs. In 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said there had been 144 reports of UAPs. Earlier this week, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray said the number of UAP incidents reported by pilots and military personnel has risen to about 400.

During the hearing, Ronald Moultrie, the Pentagon’s undersecretary of intelligence, said, “Our goal isn’t to possibly cover up anything, if we find something. It’s to understand what might be out there.”

Democratic Representative Andre Carson of Indiana called for greater transparency at the meeting.

“I hope it’s not 50 years before Congress has another one,” he said. “Because transparency is desperately needed.”

Moultrie also said the “cultural stigma” surrounding UFOs has previously hurt the government’s efforts to investigate UAPs.

“Our goal is to eliminate this stigma by fully including our operators and mission personnel in a standardized data collection process,” he said.

Burchett told the sun online that the public should know the truth about UFOs.

He said “all we do is cover up”, and more transparency is needed.

“What’s wrong with telling the world and saying, ‘We’ve got this, we’re going to share it and together we can figure out what it is’?” he told the news station. “I don’t think much will come out of the hearings. It brings in the people who caused the problem to fix the problem.”

Steven Tingay, professor of radio astronomy at Curtin University in Australia, said: news week he doesn’t believe the US is hiding UFO wreckage.

“If it was positively identified as being from an object in the sky, the most likely explanation is that it was a man-made object, Tingay said. “So, based on what has been presented, no, I don’t think there is any available. evidence is that alien hardware is being hidden.”

“Do we really think that a technology capable of traveling interstellar distances would take tens, hundreds or thousands of years at the speed of light — much, much longer at realistic speeds — than it would crash to Earth? Think agree on the reliability of aircraft.

“The odds of your plane crashing are about one in a million. Presumably interstellar craft would be more reliable, meaning getting one wrecked craft would take many millions of alien visits. Say, 1,000 visits a day for the last 50. It is very likely that many more credible reports would exist, especially of the near misses that didn’t lead to a crash, but almost did.”

Tingay said there are plenty of reasons a government could cover up finding UFO wreckage, but there are also plenty of reasons why it would be transparent about any findings. “You can always come up with a reason why a government does or doesn’t do something that it does or doesn’t do, or is believed to be doing or not doing,” he said.

During the congressional hearing, he said: “There is clearly some puzzling material, such as the images taken by naval pilots. I have no explanation for those images, but whatever theory is advanced about those images must already be the evidence and scientific analysis survive.

“There isn’t enough information to say what’s in the footage. But if the claim is alien technology, the evidence has to be proportionate to the magnitude of the claim. That evidence is just not available.” .”
