WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, the House of Representatives will hold a public hearing on “unidentified aerial phenomena”, widely known as UFOs, which has become a high-profile moment for a controversial topic that has long been part of public policy.

The hearing that is scheduled for 9 a.m. ET and will be broadcast live, was convened by the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence and Counter-Proliferation under the House Intelligence Committee, a group chaired by Democratic MP Andre Carson of Indiana. The subcommittee will consider Deputy Defense Secretary for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie and Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray. After the public hearings, the board will also hold a closed secret briefing.

The event will be the first public hearing in UFO Congress in decades. It follows a historic publication last year by the U.S. intelligence community of a long-awaited report to mysterious flying objects that have moved through limited military airspace over the past few decades.

The report examined 144 reports of what the government called an “unidentified aerial phenomenon” – only one of which investigators were able to explain by the end of the study. Investigators have found no evidence that the observations represented either extraterrestrial life or major technological advances by a foreign adversary such as Russia or China, but acknowledge that this is a possible explanation.

For lawmakers and intelligence and military personnel working on unexplained aerial phenomena, the biggest concern in the episodes is not that alien life is visiting Earth, but that a foreign adversary such as Russia or China could use some next-generation technology. in America. airspace of which the United States is unaware.

In November 2021, the Ministry of Defense announced the establishment of a group to synchronize the identification and management of air objects.

The department said in the issue while the goal of the new program will be to synchronize U.S. government efforts to “identify, identify, and assign objects of interest” in limited airspace “To assess and mitigate any related threats to flight safety and national security.”

In a statement before the hearing, Carson said: “The American people expect and deserve their government and intelligence leaders to seriously assess and respond to any potential risks to national security – especially those we do not fully understand.”

The chairman of the subcommittee went on to say: “Since coming to Congress, I have focused on the issue of unidentified aerial phenomena as a threat to national security and an interest of great importance to the American public. will give the American people a chance to know what they need to know about the incidents. And I look forward to hearing from our witnesses on this critical case. “
