CONCERNS that UFOs have never-before-seen capabilities that can outmaneuver and outperform the US’s most advanced military technology prompted Congress to call a historic UFO hearing.
Congressman Andre Carson, who will head the May 17 public hearing, promised to dive into the national security risks posed by UFOs’ potential presence.
“Americans need to know more about these unexplained occurrences,” Carson said in a tweet.
This is the first time Congress will get together in more than 50 years to discuss UFOs and extraterrestrial life, which expert Jeremy Corbell said is a “big f******g deal.”
“This is what the people and #UFOTwitter have been asking for: uniform transparency,” Corbell told The Sun in an exclusive interview.
“This hearing will kick in the doors and is more proof that UFOs are real and prove that they have advanced tech that we cannot identify.
“It will focus on the national security and the flight safety issues caused by the presence of UFOs on planet earth.”
The House Intelligence Committee’s subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation will meet on Tuesday morning at 10am.
Two of the military’s top brass are scheduled to speak: Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security Ronald S. Moultrie as well as Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott W. Bray.
The last time the government held a public hearing on UFOs was back in 1969, when it announced the termination of Project Blue Book, an Air Force program that was investigating UFOs.

“It’s a huge step forward,” said journalist Jeremy Knapp, who was instrumental in applying pressure on the government.
“The first public hearing seems to be modest in its scope, with only two witnesses set to testify, but if this goes well, it will likely lead to a broader examination of the evidence,” Knapp told The Sun in a rare exclusive interview.
The public part of Tuesday’s hearing is the dramatic pivot from past years, Corbell and Knapp said.
The investigative report said Congress and senior staff have held closed-door UFO briefings since about 2018.
But calls from the public – most notably from #UFOTwitter – for the government to hold meetings in public grew louder and reached a deafening decibel after the release of the preliminary report on UAPs last summer.
BOMBSHELL EVIDENCE OF UFOs
Corbell and Knapp obtained and released a trove of unseen and at-the-time classified reports and corroborated visual evidence of UFOs in Mei 2021.
The evidence included – among other things – the Navy’s radar video, inferred video, en die video from the battleship’s deck of the warship of UFOs circling above in July 2019.
Daardie “shook some trees,” Corbell said.
Knapp believes government officials were “stunned by what they’ve heard from military witnesses and longtime investigators.
Coincidentally or not, the government released its preliminary report on UAPs (unidentified aerial phenomenon) a month later.
Die Junie 2021 report included over 140 unexplained military encounters going back to 2004, but it didn’t seem to provide a lot of information.
But Corbell read between the lines and said there were important takeaways he had from the report and called it a “turning point” in how the public viewed UFOs.
Een, hy het gesê, these incidents included physical objects that the US government admitted outperformed and outmaneuvered America’s greatest weapons.
Twee, Corbell said, the government admitted what they saw wasn’t secret US technology or any known technology of America’s adversaries.
“Science fiction is now science fact,” Corbell said. “Human knowledge expands a little bit every day, and that’s what we’re seeing now.”
NO MORE SECRETS
Knapp has one major suggestion to Congress: release or demanded a Congress-approved, multi-million dollar UFO study.
“That project (the Defense Intelligence Agency dubbed AAWSAP) produced the largest UFO database in history, yet no member of Congress has seen any of the thousands of documents and analysis,” said Knapp, who’s well connected with government officials.
“Congress should insist that the material be made public,” hy het gesê. “And if the DIA won’t produce it, the people who ran the program will step forward if requested.”
Harvard Professor Dr Avi Loeb told The Sun Thursday that sharing previously declassified information with the scientific community and the public is vital to discovering potential extraterrestrial life.
“Science is guided by evidence,” Loeb said. “In die besonder, if the acquired knowledge is extraterrestrial, then it is not a matter of national security.
“Onlangs, the US government demonstrated that it can advance scientific knowledge,” said Loeb, who used the example of his and Dr Amir Siraj’s finding of the first interstellar object.
“Let’s maintain this encouraging sign of the US government to support the promotion of science at the frontiers of our knowledge,” the renowned Harvard professor and founder of the Galileo project said.
“Future cooperation between government and science will help us understand the unknown.”
