Sen. Heinrich, D-NM, is a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and he had this to say when asked about UAP/UFOs,
[If] there is a foreign government that had these kinds of capabilities, I think we would see other indications of advanced technology. I can’t imagine that what has been described or shown in some of the videos is of…belongs to any government that I’m aware of…

The story continues,
When asked…if people should be more worried about UFOs being from foreign governments or aliens, Heinrich responded without hesitation, “Oh, option B. Much bigger thing to worry about.”
Hmmm. Senate Intel Committee member, you say?

“Sen. Martin Heinrich Says New UFO Videos Appear Too Advanced for Humans”
Most people who have been following the UAP/UFO story since the 2017 New York Times article (Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program, Ralph Blumenthal, Leslie Kean, and Helene Cooper) are well aware that, well, this story has legs.
In a few weeks, the Pentagon and the Director of National Intelligence are expected to submit their report on the subject to the Senate Select Committee for Intelligence. And in the meantime, the story has finally been picked up by the MSM (CBSNews – 5/16/2021):
[60 Minutes] correspondent Bill Whitaker reported on unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, more commonly known as UFOs.
Whitaker interviewed two former Navy pilots, Cmdr. Dave Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich, who said they witnessed something “unsettling” and unexplainable while flying over the Pacific Ocean in November 2004. Fravor is a graduate of the TOPGUN naval flight program. He was a commander of the F/A-18F squadron on the USS Nimitz at the time of the encounter.
Dietrich, a former F/A-18F pilot, has never before spoken publicly about what she saw that day. “It was unidentified. And that’s why it was so unsettling to us. Because we weren’t expecting it. We couldn’t classify it,” said Dietrich.
