US to hold secret Congressional hearings on UFOs: all data will be classified
Around January 8, 2024, the House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP or UFO). All data on the hearings and their results are likely to be completely classified.
According to Axios, the secret briefing will be conducted by the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community. For its part, The Messenger has received information indicating that the hearing will take place on January 8.
These secret hearings are likely to be a response to Democratic and Republican demands for disclosure of what the government knows about UFOs. In particular, they are likely to hear reports on the creation of new offices to track and report on UFO sightings, as well as explanations from government officials accused of concealing sightings.
According to The Byte, the first leaks of information about UFOs began during the presidency of Barack Obama (2009-2017). It was then that there were a number of leaks from intelligence and military circles that confirmed public suspicions that the government had more information about UFOs than it was making public.
The current hearings are based on last year's statements by David Grush, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and former employee of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the National Reconnaissance Office, who claimed that the Pentagon is hiding a lot.
Last summer, Grush made several sensational statements, first speaking to journalists and then repeating them during a public hearing in the US Congress. In particular, he claimed that the U.S. government has alien vehicles in its possession, as well as the dead non-human bodies of "pilots."
Grush's statements were criticized by representatives of the research community, including Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, who called the sensationalist claims nonsense.
However, whether true or not, Grush's revelations have raised many questions about the secrecy of government work on UFOs, as well as the fact that claims of UFO sightings from the public are often not even investigated.
