The truth is out there: Congress will hold the first open hearing on UFOs in over 50 years, Pentagon officials will testify

A subcommittee in the US House of Representatives will next week hold a public congressional hearing on unidentified flying objects (UFOs) for the first time in more than 50 years.

Andre Carson, an Indiana Democratic representative, said the House Intelligence Committee will lead the prosecution, Vice reported.

He said: “Congress has not held a public hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena (UFOs) for over 50 years. That will change next week when I chair a hearing at @HouseIntel on this topic and the national security risk it poses. Americans need to know more about these unexplained incidents.”

The hearing is currently scheduled for Tuesday, May 17, and will take place before a subcommittee of the House Intelligence Committee, currently chaired by California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff.

Schiff said the committee is holding the hearing series to “explore one of the great mysteries of our time and to break the cycle of excessive secrecy and speculation with truth and transparency.”

As of this writing, two officials currently serving at the Pentagon are scheduled to testify at the hearing.

After the New York Times published an article in 2017 about the existence of a project called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) at the Pentagon that focused on identifying UFOs, official government disclosures about UFOs have accelerated.

In 2021, the Pentagon released a report on its UFO program that listed more than 140 airborne object sightings that could not be explained between 2004 and 2021. The report was considered relatively unconvincing at the time, as much information had already been disclosed and much of the report was simply concerned with securing additional funds for the Pentagon.

The Black Vault, a government transparency organization, was able to obtain a classified version of this report earlier this year. This version of the report reportedly contains more intriguing details, but significant chunks of it are still redacted.

Since the release of the 2021 report, various outlets have received hundreds of pages of reports and research on futuristic technology funded by the government under the auspices of AATIP and a sister program called the Advanced Aerospace Weapons System Application Program.

The Barack Obama Presidential Library has also said it has thousands of pages of documents related to UFOs. The truth is out there: Congress will hold the first open hearing on UFOs in over 50 years, Pentagon officials will testify
