Testimony was compelling from the three witnesses at the hearing Wednesday on “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP)” (aka UFOs) and their “Implications on National Security, Public Safety, and Government Transparency.”
Members of the subcommittee who were in attendance vowed to dig deeper into their allegations of a widespread government cover-up and alleged attempts at intimidation.
Redstate made this report about the testimony:
“A former military intelligence officer-turned-whistleblower told House lawmakers that Congress is being kept in the dark about unidentified anomalous phenomena, known as UAP or UFOs, alleging at a hearing that executive branch agencies have withheld information about the mysterious objects for years.
David Grusch, who served for 14 years as an intelligence officer in the Air Force and National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, appeared before the House Oversight Committee’s national security subcommittee alongside two former fighter pilots who had firsthand experience with UAP.
In addition to Grusch, the panel heard testimony from Ryan Graves, a former Navy pilot who has spoken out about encountering UAP on training missions, and David Fravor, who spotted a large object captured in the now-famous “Tic Tac” video during a flight off the coast of California in 2004.
All three witnesses said current reporting systems are inadequate to investigate UAP encounters, and said a stigma still exists for pilots and officials who press for more transparency about their experiences.”
Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) brought his usual flair to the recent congressional hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), or UFOs by writing:
“In Washington, D.C., common sense is illegal. I swear to God and all the angels that’s true. You know, I remember when the kitchen table issues mattered more than pronouns, when boys weren’t allowed to compete in girls’ sports, when truth mattered a lot more than political correctness.
Maybe that’s why the aliens won’t talk to us.”
As he said that last line, he looked up at the Earth and spotted a “flying saucer.”
