Congress finally held its UFO hearing. Okay, technically, it was a subcommittee hearing from the House Oversight and Accountability to learn more about the presence of UFOs and gain more transparency on what the government actually knows.
First of all, let’s talk about the verbiage we should be using. The military doesn’t like to use the term “UFOs” because it has a negative connotation. No military officer wants to be accused of talking about UFOs that may have been seen on a mission. As such, they are referred to as UAPs. This stands for “unidentified aerial phenomena.”
The A in UAP has always stood for “aerial.” However, recently, the military is starting to define it as “anomalous” to account for sightings in air and water.
Yes, water. Does that mean that alien spacecraft have been found in our water? Not necessarily. It simply means that there have been unidentified phenomena found in the water.
Countless questions were asked during the hearing, and there are a few things that are worth noting.
One former Air Force intelligence officer spoke about a “multi-decade” reverse engineering program that has been going on for recovered vessels. Essentially, we are trying to learn about alien tech.
Most of the sightings have proven to be boring – they are birds, airborne trash, drones, or weather balloons.
However, Retired Major David Grusch shared quite a few details since he was part of the UAP Task Force within the Pentagon. He claimed that there were various UFO programs within the government that he was denied access. And he knows where the US keeps some of their UAPs.
Grusch admitted that he hadn’t personally seen any alien bodies or alien spacecraft. He did have plenty to say, though, based on over 40 witnesses he interviewed during his time on the government task force.
Quite a few questions from the oversight committee were met with deflection. Grusch said that he would only be able to elaborate if they were in a sensitive compartmented information facility.
Former Navy fighter pilot Ryan Graves spoke about his encounters with UAPs. He made it clear that UAP sightings are not rare and that the capabilities and technologies are unexplainable. He commented, “If everyone could see the sensor and video data I witnessed, our national conversation would change.”
It’s clear that the government has a significant amount of information about aliens and alien spacecraft that they’re not ready to share with the rest of the country.
Now that the oversight committee hearing has been held, hopefully, there is a push for more transparency.
And if you see something unexplainable in the sky, be sure to refer to it as a UAP instead of a UFO. That way, you don’t sound like a kook – and the military will be more likely to investigate it.
