Congress implies ‘non-human origin’ in notable revisions to definition of ‘UFO’: report

Throughout President Joe Biden’s administration, the American public has been confronted with an Orwellian onslaught of redefined terms to impress the notion his presidency has been a success. But, while the impacts of inflation and a recession may be readily apparent to the average citizen, one former analyst suggested an updated “otherworldly” definition may warrant some extra attention.

Marin von Rennenkampff was an analyst with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation in addition to having been appointed to the U.S. Department of Defense during President Barack Obama’s administration. He also is a contributor to The Hill and in his latest piece he pointed out draft legislation in Congress that excludes “man-made” from being in consideration when discussing unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena.

UAPs, as they’re now known, have replaced the previously designated UFOs in official documents and von Rennenkampff highlighted his belief in “The explosive implication that some UFOs have non-human origins.”

Earlier this year, the House of Representatives had its first hearing pertaining to UAPs in over fifty years after the completion of a preliminary report from the Director of National Intelligence’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. Within that report, it was stated that “UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to national security. Safety concerns primarily center on aviators contending with an increasingly cluttered air domain. UAP would also represent a national security challenge if they are foreign adversary collection platforms or provide evidence a potential adversary has developed a breakthrough or disruptive technology.”

Since then Congress has drafted bills pertaining to appropriations for fiscal year 2023 in which the language used to describe UAPs is far from concerning issues faced by any foreign nation.

Specifically, UAP was updated to include underwater capabilities with the designation “unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena.”

These “transmedium” objects are further described as being able to “transition between space and the atmosphere, or between the atmosphere and bodies of water” and it was noted that “transmedium threats to United States national security are expanding exponentially.”

As Rennenkampff had noted, the language also distances UAPs from strictly earthly concerns as the definition “does not include temporary nonattributed objects or those that are positively identified as man-made.”

Mick West, a skeptic of the analyst suggested that the notion presented was “A rather misleading spin,” adding that the “new definition of UAPs in S. 4503 excludes objects POSITIVELY IDENTIFIED as man-made. That does not imply UAP/UFOs are non-human. It implies they are unidentified.”

However, the analyst countered West by clarifying, “Under the draft legislation, if the new UFO office identifies an object as a drone or a balloon, it immediately stops investigating, passes the information on, and moves on to another case.”

“If that language becomes law,” he asked suggestively, “what’s the point of the office?”

To support his argument, Rennenkampff had included statements from such high-profile figures as former CIA Director John Brennan who stated UFOs might, “constitute a different form of life;” and former CIA Director James Woolsey who said, “something is going on that is surprising to…experienced pilots;” and even former President Bill Clinton, who had chided a television audience for laughing when he had been asked to discuss the topic which he did with a “serious, matter-of-fact demeanor.”
