The US Congress will hold its first UFO hearing in more than 50 years

 

The US Congress plans to hold a public hearing on unspecified weather events, or UAPs - the Pentagon's new term for what was formerly known as "UFOs."   The hearing will be held by the U.S. House Intelligence Committee's subcommittee on counter-terrorism, counter-intelligence and anti-proliferation on Tuesday, starting at 10 a.m. EDT, and will be broadcast live on YouTube. The Committee will hold a confidential hearing on the identification of airborne objects and the synchronization of the Pentagon administration after the public hearing.




The US Congress plans to hold a public hearing on unspecified weather events, or UAPs - the Pentagon's new term for what was formerly known as "UFOs."


The hearing will be held by the U.S. House Intelligence Committee's subcommittee on counter-terrorism, counter-intelligence and anti-proliferation on Tuesday, starting at 10 a.m. EDT, and will be broadcast live on YouTube. The Committee will hold a confidential hearing on the identification of airborne objects and the synchronization of the Pentagon administration after the public hearing.


According to Indiana Representative Andre Carson on Twitter, this will be the first hearing in Congress on UFOs since the 1970s. The Democrat will preside over the hearing.


  • Two witnesses will appear at the hearing: Scott Bray, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence, and Ronald Multree
  • Under-Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security.
  • Mr. Multree is the leader of the administration's synchronization and identification group of airborne objects
  • created at the Pentagon in response to a June 2021 report to Congress from the United States Office of the Director of National Intelligence
  • which found that more than 140 sightings of a mysterious object since 2004, many of which could not be explained by military pilots.


The report was inconclusive, noting that there was no evidence to suggest that it was originally outside the territory or as a result of foreign military projects. At the same time, researchers believe that observed phenomena "represent material objects" appear to behave in ways that appear to exceed the technological capabilities of the United States.


While the report was inconclusive about UFO assets, it was clear that the investigation was important to the United States' interests.


  1. "It is clear that UAP presents an aviation safety problem and may pose a challenge to US national security"
  2. the report states.
  3. "Safety concerns are primarily focused on pilots dealing with an increasingly chaotic airspace.


The UAP will also represent a national security challenge if foreign hostile collection platforms or provide evidence that a potential adversary has developed a breakthrough or revolution technique. "



Since the report's release last year, a bipartisan group of members of Congress have expressed dismay at the slow pace of investigation into UFOs. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York were among those who spoke.


"This could be the thing that brings Democrats and Republicans together, at least for an hour or two," Representative Carson told The New York Times.


  • Back in March last year
  • UFOs made political headlines after a former Pentagon official who announced confrontations with UFOs filed a complaint with the agency's inspector general
  • alleging there was a coordinated process to discredit him for exiting, including accusing a senior official of threatening to tell others he was "crazy."


According to his legal team, Lue Elizondo, a professional counterintelligence specialist hired in 2008 to work on the Pentagon program that examined allegations of "unmanned weather events"


filed the 64-page complaint with the independent watchdog on May 3 and has met with investigators several times.


  • The assertion that the government is trying to discredit it comes just weeks before the Director of National Intelligence and the Pentagon appointed Congress a non
  • confidential report on flying dishes and the government's policy of investigating such confrontations.
  • The report is likely to provide full accountability to the agencies, persons and control systems responsible for data collection and analysis.


"What he says is that there are certain members of the Department of Defense who were actually openly attacking and lying about him


 using the colour of their offices' power to disparage and discredit him, and who were interfering with his ability to seek out and obtain a profitable business in the world," said Daniel Sheehan, Elizabeth's lawyer. His security statement is also threatened.


Sheehan, a public interest lawyer and activist with a long history of confronting the federal government on behalf of high-profile agents, including representing The New York Times in the Pentagon Papers case and a Watergate thief.
