one house member also said the stigma around u f o's gets in the way of good intelligence analysis and that pilots should be encouraged to report strange occurrences they see without fear of being ridiculed. but given the highly sensitive nature of all this military intelligence officials were cautious in what they said given the nature of our business national defense. we've had to sometimes be less forthcoming with information and open forums than many would hope. >> if you ap do indeed represent a potential threat to our security than the capability systems processes and sources. we used to observe record study or analyze these phenomena need to be classified at appropriate levels. and following today's public hearing, those lawmakers also received a private classified briefing. >> from those same intelligence officials reporting in washington. i'm trevor shirley. hopefully they're coming in peace. all right. next all 30 and east bay city bracing for a major
