The hearing - which will focus on the potential security risks - will reportedly feature the testimony of two Pentagon officials.
Set to take place on May 17th, the hearing will take place in front of a subcommittee of the House Intelligence Committee and will be chaired by California Rep. Adam Schiff.

It is very unusual indeed for an event like this to happen and this will be the first time an open hearing regarding the UFO phenomenon has been held in Congress in over five decades.

Speaking to the New York Times, Schiff stated that the hearing will explore "one of the great mysteries of our time" and will "break the cycle of excessive secrecy and speculation with truth and transparency."
There will also be an emphasis on the national security and flight-safety questions raised last year by the "Preliminary Assessment" report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

"Since this is an area of high public interest, any undue secrecy can serve as an obstacle to solving the mystery, or it could prevent us from finding solutions to potential vulnerabilities," said Representative Andre Carson.

"This hearing is about examining steps that the Pentagon can take to reduce the stigma surrounding reporting by military pilots, and by civilian pilots."

Tales of people being to stay quiet or being threatened in the military today are hilarious to me. There are so many avenues for troops to report things and/or make complaints. Anyone who was told to "keep quiet" and then didn't try to report it to the IG office or contact the 1-800 anonymous whistleblower line is full of it. Not buying this crap at all.

The electronics are not known to exist for that, at the very minimum their solder connections would be failing.

I've posted here about people I know who have been threatened. Comes along with signing their NDAs.

NDAs for what? Their duty pulling a guard shift at an OP? It's not a sensitive site or a classified operation so that doesn't wash. Plus I'm having an intel buddy do some digging because I'm trying to figure out what Cav unit has been or currently is sending units to the Sinai. I could be wrong but I don't think there have been any major units in that area since the end of Operation New Dawn on 2011 and the return of combat forces from Iraq. So, you personally know and talked to people who have signed NDAs and were threatened?

Yes, guys from security to independent contractors that worked in highly sensitive areas.

Did they have a copy of their NDAs to back their claim? Did they say what highly sensitive areas? But back to your original statement. Cav troops by and large aren't getting assigned to a mission that would require an NDA.

No they didn't have their NDAs in their wallets, I wasn't interrogating them, for crapssakes. Yes, they told me about the areas and incidents, which we're all privy to.

Well, how close did Louie Gohmert and Tommy Tuberville get to finding the truth today? I hear the truth is out there, I just don't think most of those guys could find their butt with both hands.

Ok, so they told you a story and you believed it. Thank you. What was the nature of your conversation that lead to a discussion of UFOs, sensitive areas, NDAs and the like? Can you give specifics of what you're alluding to? (bolded for clarification)
