Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, detailed his key findings from the hearing and his concerns about what the military calls Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) on “Fox & Friends First.”
“The takeaway is that we need to continue to pursue this and make sure we’re doing it the right way and really trying to get as much knowledge as we can about this type of stuff,” said Rep Wenstrup to the co-host. Todd Piro.
“And hopefully one day we will definitely know what it is, where it came from,” he continued. “And at the same time, it’s important that we collect the data correctly, that we work to protect our warriors in the space and the area of operation where they work.”
Representative Wenstrup pointed to the “lack of data” surrounding UFO reports and concerns about the ability of commercial pilots to report mysterious sightings.

“One of the things I was worried about yesterday was that in this situation you may have reports from pilots, maybe from a ship, but what about private and commercial pilots , things like that ?
“Are they able to report discoveries? he asked. “Have they seen any finds? These are things that interest us as well.
Rep. Wenstrup warned that the sightings are a “national security concern” because questions remain about the origins of some sightings.
