The Biden administration announced Monday that it will form an interagency team to address the unusual flying objects in the skies above North America.
White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said President Biden directed the creation of a team to study “the broader policy implications for detection, analysis and disposition of unidentified aerial objects that pose either safety or security risks.”
“Every element of the government will redouble their efforts to understand and mitigate these events,” Mr. Kirby told reporters at the White House press briefing.
The team will aim to dig deeper into the situation to see what improvements may be needed and how agencies can better address these incidents, Mr. Kirby said.
The U.S. military has shot down four objects over North America this month, most recently a flying object over Lake Huron on Sunday. The incidents started earlier this month, with the U.S. military taking down a suspected Chinese spy balloon.
