Citizen Hearing On Disclosure: UFO Believers To Testify At Congressional-Style Hearings
By Lee Speigel | HuffingtonPost
Is the federal government honest about what it knows about UFOs? Are officials suppressing the truth about extraterrestrial visitations?
The federal hearings UFO researchers have been demanding have not yet materialized. But some of the testimony that would be posed at those proceedings will be posed this week to former members of Congress.
At the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., a Citizen Hearing On Disclosure (CHD) will unfold between April 29 to May 3. For 30 hours, 40 international researchers and military/agency witnesses will testify in front of these committee members:
Former Senator Mike Gravel (Dem/Lib, AK)
Former Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick (Dem, MI)
Former Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (Dem, CA)
Former Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (Dem, OR)
Former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (Rep, MD)
Former Congressman Merrill Cook (Rep, UT)
"I donít think ET is the best word for it. I think itís more unidentifiable foreign substances or vehicles in the air -- itís unidentified," Gravel told HuffPost. "I donít know if itís little green men or purple men or if itís any men. All I know is that, worldwide, thereís thousands and thousands of sightings. Some of them may be hallucinatory, but under close examination, there are real sightings. Thereís something that we donít know of."
Gravel, a former Special Agent in the Counter Intelligence Corps, who once insisted from the floor of the Senate that his constituents had a right to know the truth behind the Vietnam War, feels the same way about the public knowing the facts about UFOs.
"Having been opposed and fighting, all of my public career, the military industrial complex and the fact that we have excessive secrecy, just does a disservice to the people when you have the military that feels this stuff has got to be secret and they wonít open their files."
One of Gravelís CHD committee colleagues, Kilpatrick, told HuffPost she doesnít like the fact that "this country makes jokes about (UFOs), but in other countries, itís a spiritual kind of thing, so Iím really looking forward to seeing exactly what it is.
"As a member of the Appropriations Committee and Armed Service Committee and serving on the Air Force Academy Board, I always had an interest [in UFOs]. I think if thereís something there that we need to discuss, then we ought to be part of that discussion.
"I want to hear the factual information and Iím taking it very seriously. I donít want to be ambivalent. I donít want it to be a joke. Itís too serious. If we bury our heads in the sand and say thereís nothing there, we lose, our country loses. I want to hear the expert testimony and be convinced that somethingís there. Iím willing to take it where it leads, and if itíll help our country and the people of America be better world citizens, and if my appropriations experience can help, Iím willing to do that."
Both Gravel and Kilpatrick say they think itís time for a real congressional investigation into UFOs and the possibility that Earth is being visited by someone from very far away. Theyíd also like to see this issue brought up again at the United Nations.
"I can say that we donít have to wait for the hearings to do that," said Gravel. "Whether or not Congress wants to do it, I think that itís global in nature and I would like to divorce it from the Congress of the U.S. I think that there should be a part of the U.N. devoted to this. I would sign a document like that right now."
