Is this federal government behind the mysterious sittings of drones?

I'm starting to wonder if the government is involved in the mysterious sittings of drones in the sky's in the mid west.
I'm wondering if they are trying to influence the general public's thinking as to the the new Remote ID laws ?
I'm wondering if it's just a coincidence that these sittings started happening around the same time as the FFA wanting the public to submit their comments to the FFA on the new proposed Remote ID law ?
I'm wondering?...................

Or, upon thinking deeper "ouch", I'm wondering if it's the government or someone/business that has intrest/investment in Unmanned traffic management (UTM). I'm wondering 🤔

Is a "sitting" anything like a sighting?

Could it be, perhaps, someone like Intel doing practice flights with their display drones?

Either way it’s fair to say that all this publicity means whatever’s going on is well documented and I look forward to seeing some good, clear and crisp video images.
After that I’d say a lot of questions will be answered.

We get regular safety notifications about bears being sited in town, cited in town, and sighted in town. I'm sure those events are all linked.
with a drone?

Actually I saw even more about this on our late news last night. We live about 60 miles from Omaha in Iowa and these things have started showing up there in the country. One thing was clear, drones don’t sound and look like small planes from underneath. The folks that saw them were screaming attack of the drones. You could in a fairly good video see and hear these aren’t the drones your mother warned you about. Not even close.
im just surprised how this store and sighting keep migrating to the East. Maybe they’ll fly my way and we can catch one to finally put this mystery to bed once and for all.

In the meantime Jeff Bezos is watching.................
Funtime had by all.
