The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race will attempt to accomplish what the Congress has failed to do for forty-five years - seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time.

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 don’t think ET is the best word for it. I think it’s more unidentifiable foreign substances or vehicles in the air -- it’s unidentified," Gravel told HuffPost. "I don’t know if it’s little green men or purple men or if it’s any men. All I know is that, worldwide, there’s thousands and thousands of sightings. Some of them may be hallucinatory, but under close examination, there are real sightings. There’s something that we don’t 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 won’t open their files."
One of Gravel’s CHD committee colleagues, Kilpatrick, told HuffPost she doesn’t like the fact that "this country makes jokes about (UFOs), but in other countries, it’s a spiritual kind of thing, so I’m 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 there’s something there that we need to discuss, then we ought to be part of that discussion.
"I want to hear the factual information and I’m taking it very seriously. I don’t want to be ambivalent. I don’t want it to be a joke. It’s too serious. If we bury our heads in the sand and say there’s nothing there, we lose, our country loses. I want to hear the expert testimony and be convinced that something’s there. I’m willing to take it where it leads, and if it’ll help our country and the people of America be better world citizens, and if my appropriations experience can help, I’m willing to do that."
Both Gravel and Kilpatrick say they think it’s time for a real congressional investigation into UFOs and the possibility that Earth is being visited by someone from very far away. They’d also like to see this issue brought up again at the United Nations.
"I can say that we don’t have to wait for the hearings to do that," said Gravel. "Whether or not Congress wants to do it, I think that it’s 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."

Beaten to Death at McDonald’s 2014 08 29 To the four clean-cut college freshman out on a double date, it had seemed like a typical McDonald’s: spanking clean, well-lighted, and safe.

Shortly after 2 A.M. that Sunday, they pulled into ...
