USA: Public hearing of Pentagon members on UFO / UAP10. 05. 2022
The subcommittee of the House Intelligence Committee will hear testimony from two Pentagon officials next week.
Subcommittee of the House of Representatives should hold next week (17.05.2022) first open hearing in Congress o Unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) for more than half a century with the testimony of two top intelligence officials.
The hearing comes after a report was published last year at 06.2021 UAPrequested by Congress. Nine pages Preliminary evaluation director's office National intelligence focused on 144 incidents in 2004 and only one of them was able to explain them unambiguously. The report declined to conclude that the reports were available largely inconclusive and noted that limited and inconsistent data created a problem in assessing phenomena. But she mentioned most of the reported phenomena represents physical objects. The evaluation further concluded that the items were not secret US technology and that "we currently lack data to suggest that any UAP is part of a foreign collection program or indicates a great technological advancement of a potential adversary."
From an exopolitical point of view, the report did not bring anything fundamentally new. However, the media hype has increased public interest in the topic and is gradually provoking further action and reactions. It should also be noted that the nine-page document was again just a bone thrown to the public, because the secret version had data of more than 14 pages and went into more detail. Some information from her was obtained thanks Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The hearing, which is scheduled for next Tuesday (17.05.2022), is to focus on the group's work within Pentagonwhich deals with issues national security and flight safety generated by the report.
"Given that this is an area of high public interest, any undue secrecy may serve as an obstacle to solving the mystery or could prevent us from finding solutions to potential vulnerabilities." said Deputy André Carson, a Democrat from Indiana and chairman of the association. Subcommittee of the House Intelligence Committee, counterintelligence and counterproliferation, who organizes the hearing: "This hearing is about examining the steps the Pentagon can take to reduce the stigma surrounding the reporting of military pilots and civilian pilots."
Among the planned witnesses are Ronald S. Moultrie, under the Minister of Defense for Intelligence and Security, and Scott W. Bray, Deputy Director of Maritime Intelligence.
"The federal government and the intelligence community play a key role in contextualizing and analyzing the news." said the deputy Adam B. Schiff, a California Democrat who is chairman House Intelligence Committee. He said the purpose of the hearing was to shed light "One of the great secrets of our time and breaking the cycle of excessive secrecy and speculation by truth and transparency".
The report delivered to Congress last June (06.2021) was prepared by the intelligence community together with Pentagon working group Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force (UAPTF), Which Pentagon replaced the new office in November (23.11.2021), Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG). The task of the group is "Detect, identify and assign objects of interest in the end-use airspace and assess and mitigate any related threats to flight safety and national security". Already mentioned Ronald S. Moultrie oversees this new group, which will be the focus of the forthcoming hearing.
Senator last December Kirsten gillibrand, a Democrat from New York, and a deputy Ruben Gallego, a Democrat from Arizona, succeeded with the support of both parties in inserting an amendment to the annual National Defense Permit Act, which mandates the Pentagon to work with the intelligence community on this issue, and published reports on its findings around the UAP. The amendment extended the scope of research beyond what the group had already done AATIP v Pentagon.
Congress did not hold any open hearings on UFO since the Air Force closed a public inquiry known as Project Blue Book at the beginning of 1970. In 1966 Gerald R. Ford, then leader of the Republican minority of the Michigan House of Representatives, organized a hearing in response to reports of UFO from more than 40 people, including 12 police officers. The Air Force explained them as mud gases (also sometimes known as disinformation political farts (DPF)). "I believe that the American people have a right to a more thorough explanation than the air force has ever given them." he said Gerald R. Ford in a letter to two committees of the House of Representatives March 28.03.1966, XNUMX.
Air Force officials testified to the observations
Two years later, a second hearing was held in Congress, at which scientists outside the Air Force presented scientific articles on their own studies of the phenomenon and called for further research into unidentified flying objects (UFO).
The Air Force concluded in 1969 that no UFO had ever posed a threat to national security; that the objects did not exhibit technology beyond today's knowledge; and that there is no evidence to suggest that the objects were extraterrestrial. For this reason, NAVY closed the matter, stating that no further investigation was warranted.
In fact, on the contrary, they found such strong evidence that further investigation was necessary that they decided to clean up the whole problem in public. That's why he was Project Blue Book terminated and its classified messages were forwarded to other government projects (also known as BlackOps) with a much higher level of classification.
In recent years, intelligence services and statements of officials raised concerns about the national security threat by UFOs through advanced technology indicated by pilot reports, for example, on objects moving at extreme speeds without visible traces of the internal combustion engine. Officials expressed doubts that it could be the modern technology of known adversaries.
"I laughed at something, but it's something I'm passionate about and I think I can handle." he said Carson. "That may be the thing that unites Democrats and Republicans for at least an hour or two."
