Events in the world of UFO disclosure have been moving at superluminal speed as of late:
Along with the announcement that the House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing on UAPs on July 26, a bipartisan coalition of Senators has submitted a new amendment to next year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the U.S. government to form a review board dedicated to facilitating the disclosure of UAP information and materials to the public, similar to the Assassination Records Review Board that deals with the declassification of material regarding the JFK assassination.
Additionally, the amendment states that the U.S. government will take possession of any recovered UAP material—biological or otherwise—regardless of what agency or department it is in possession of.
First, Representatives Anna Paulina Luna, [R-FL] and Tim Burchett [R-TN] have announced that a hearing will be held on July 26 where the House Oversight Committee will hear testimony from former military personnel regarding their involvement in the UAP phenomenon. The witnesses will include former U.S. Navy aviators David Fravor and Ryan Graves regarding their personal encounters with UAP in 2004 and 1014, respectively; and former intelligence official David Grusch regarding what he learned from his investigation into potentially illegal UAP research and recovery programs while he served as the National Reconnaissance Office’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force.
Although it is assumed that the hearing will be held in Washington D.C., there was some discussion about moving the proceedings to a location in Florida “to meet with some ‘insiders’ who had more on some possible UAP information,” according to NewsNation.
Secondly—although this is no less an important development—a bipartisan coalition led by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has introduced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2024 to form a review board dedicated to facilitating the disclosure of UAP information and materials to the public, similar to the Assassination Records Review Board that deals with the declassification of material regarding the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The amendment, outright titled the “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Disclosure Act of 2023”, calls for the formation of a panel consisting of nine members, nominated by the President following recommendations made by key members of the House and Senate; at least six of the members are to be represented by the following:
–one current or former national security official; one current or former foreign service official; one scientist or engineer; one economist; one professional historian; and one sociologist.
These individuals are to be “granted the necessary security clearances and accesses, including any and all relevant Presidential, departmental, and agency special access programs” to properly execute their duties; and the Executive Director of the board is to be appointed by the President within 45 days of the NDAA being signed into law.
The amendment also states that the U.S. government will exercise eminent domain in regards to UAP materials, appropriating (or re-appropriating) “technologies of unknown origin or biological evidence of non-human intelligence,” regardless of what “government department, office, agency, committee, commission, commercial company, academic institution, or private sector entity” happens to be in possession of the material.
Sixty days after the NDAA FY24 is signed into law, the amendment calls for the Archivist of the United States—currently Colleen Shogan, the head and chief administrator of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)—”shall commence establishment of a collection of records in the National Archives to be known as the ‘Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Records Collection’”; this archive will “consist of record copies of all Government, Government-provided, or Government-funded records relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena, technologies of unknown origin, and non-human intelligence (or equivalent subjects by any other name with the specific and sole exclusion of temporarily non-attributed objects),” along with a “guidebook and index to the Collection.”
“For decades, many Americans have been fascinated by objects mysterious and unexplained and it’s long past time they get some answers,” Schumer said in a statement issued on July 14. Schumer’s co-sponsors on the amendment are Senators Kirsten Gillibrand [D-NY]; Martin Heinrich [D-NM]; Mike Rounds [R-SD]; Marco Rubio [R-FL]; and Todd Young [R-IN].
“The American public has a right to learn about technologies of unknown origins, non-human intelligence, and unexplainable phenomena,” Schumer added. “We are not only working to declassify what the government has previously learned about these phenomena but to create a pipeline for future research to be made public.”
