US lawmakers call on Biden to provide information about downed UFOs


US lawmakers call on Biden to provide information about downed UFOs

axios reported that U.S. senators who attended a confidential conference on downed UFOs over the weekend hoped for more information.

Lawmakers from both Republican and Democratic parties

are calling on President Joe Biden's administration to be more transparent about these incidents, the US website reported, with several Republican senators saying Biden should address the nation on operations.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton said:

Americans have a right to know why President Biden is overseeing the measures taken over the past week because they are worried.

They're trying to provide us with information to

  • the best of their ability, but they don't have much new data yet
  • to provide us with information supported by established facts
  • said Democratic Senator Mike Rounds.

Many senators have suggested that there has been a change in

how the Pentagon responds to these things after they allowed the Chinese spy balloon to fly across the U.S. mainland earlier this month before launching over the Atlantic Ocean -- which has drawn criticism from Republicans.

Several senators who spoke to Axios said the briefers referred to

UAPs :

but there was some disagreement over

It's unclear if the phrase "unknown aerial phenomena" or "unknown aerial platform" was meant.

They reported that there would be more information to share with Congress once the pieces had been recovered.

AP Poll: Americans' support for Ukraine aid declines

The American public's support for providing Ukraine with arms and economic assistance has declined with nearly a year since the outbreak of the conflict, according to a new poll by the Center for Public Affairs Research of the Associated Press-NORC.

48 per cent of those surveyed said they supported the United States' provision of arms to Ukraine, while 29 per cent opposed, and 22 per cent said they did not support or oppose.

In May 2022, after less than three months of fighting

60 percent of American adults said they supported sending weapons to Ukraine.

Americans were equally divided over the direct dispatch of government funds to Ukraine, where 37 per cent supported and 38 per cent opposed, while 23 per cent did not.

Signs of a decline in U.S.

  • popular backing for Ukraine has increased as President Joe Biden is ready to
  • go to Poland the following week to observe the first
  • Europe's largest conflict since World War II.

Biden has emphasised repeatedly that the US will assist Ukraine.

"no matter how long the conflict lasts," while US administration officials have secretly warned Ukrainian officials that there is "an end to the patience of Congress and the American public for the costs of a war whose end does not seem clear."

Congress approved sending about $113 billion to

Ukraine in economic, humanitarian and military spending during 2022.

The survey showed that 19 percent of

Americans had a great deal of confidence in Biden's ability to

deal with the situation in Ukraine, while 37 percent said they had only some confidence, and 43 percent said they had only little confidence.
