A US intelligence chief said he hopes UFOs stalking military bases are piloted by aliens – rather than the Chinese or Russians.
Senator Marco Rubio wants to release details of a series of mysterious aircraft sightings in a bid to identify them.
He said: “We don’t know what it is – and it isn’t ours. If it’s something outside this planet it might be better than the fact that we’ve seen some technical leap on behalf of the Chinese or the Russians or other adversaries that allow them to conduct this sort of activity.
“There are things flying over United States military bases and you don’t know what they are ’cause they’re not yours, and they exhibit, potentially, technologies that you don’t have at your own disposal.
“That to me is a national security risk. And one that we should be looking into.”
Rubio, 49, who is acting chairman of the US intelligence committee, is campaigning for the unclassified release of the sightings.
In April the Pentagon issued footage of US Navy pilots’ UFO encounters from 2004, 2014 and 2015.
Daily Star Sunday revealed how UFOs could be mapping the surface of the Earth as they create a Google Map-style chart of the universe.
The claim was made by former military intelligence adviser Christopher Mellon, who believes thousands of similar sightings worldwide suggest alien craft are on a “reconnaissance mission”.
Mr Mellon said: “I don’t think these things are ours and I’m hopeful we can finally make headway in discovering where they might be coming from and how they work.”
