The Defense Intelligence Agency has prepared a report for the House Armed Services Committee regarding the findings of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), the secret UFO program run by the Pentagon between 2007 and 2012. News of the report was included in the April edition of The Congressional Record, although the details regarding the contents of the letter are unknown. Additionally, UFO investigator Nick Pope reports that the Senate Armed Services Committee is currently investigating the 2004 encounter between the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group and a fast-moving UFO.

House Communication EC4381, published in the April 4, 2018 edition of The Congressional Record reads:

"A letter from the Chief, Congressional Relations Division, Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of Defense, transmitting a list of all products produced under the Advanced Aerospace Threat and identification Program contract for the Defense Intelligence Agency to publish; to the Committee on Armed Services."

On April 4, 2018, the head of the DIA’s Congressional Relations Division sent a letter to the House Armed Services Committee that contained a list of all of the "products" produced by the now-defunct AATIP. The products that the record alludes to would presumably include primarily documentation such as intelligence reports, photographs and video recordings regarding encounters between military personnel and UFOs.

This development is intriguing, due to Congress’s seeming disinterest in the subject of UFOs, despite calls for an investigation into the subject by officials such as former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Christopher Mellon, California Congressman Ami Bera, and former Nevada Senator Harry Reid.

"It’s now beyond dispute that the US Congress is taking an interest not just in the Pentagon’s AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program) project, but in the UFO phenomenon more generally," says UFO investigator and former head of the UK Ministry of Defence’s public UFO desk, Nick Pope.

In an October 15 article published in The Guardian, Pope says that the US Senate Armed Forces Committee is also looking into UFOs, specifically the 2004 encounter between the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group and a lozenge-shaped UFO. According to Pope’s sources, at least two of the pilots involved in the encounter have already been interviewed, and input from one of the radar operators, presumably from the USS Princeton, is being sought by the Committee.
