The UFO Phenomenon

'Roadblocks' could make further UFO hearings 'impossible'

Things are not looking particularly promising for more hearings on the subject of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
Last month's subcommittee hearing on the topic of UFOs (or UAPs) certainly brought some interesting claims to light, including those of David Grusch who maintained that the US government had found "non-human biologics" at UFO crash sites and had been covering up evidence for years.

It would not be unreasonable to imagine that the event might lead to a number of other hearings on the topic, but at a recent event hosted by The Hill, some members of the House Oversight Committee indicated that this might be impossible without a special UAP-related select committee.

"We're running into a lot of roadblocks there, and that's the problem with this whole thing," said Rep. Tim Burchett. "It just creates more and more conspiracy theories because our federal government is so arrogant and so bloated, and they'll just run out the clock."
"I'm guilty of this as well, but Americans want their pizzas in 30 minutes or less, and that's about our dadgum attention span."

According to Rep. Jared Moskowitz, however, the topic of UFOs has at least been seeing more attention - more even that other major political issues concerning Biden and Trump.

"I hear from people more on this subject than anything else," he said.

"Not the Trump indictments, not Hunter Biden. They are talking about the UAP hearing because there's great interest in this government transparency issue."

Almost seems like they are producing a reality show. Nice distraction from their seeming inability to actually do their jobs.

Well, I mean, you cared enough to comment, right?   Generally, however, I am in about the same boat.  Either the aliens are giving Robert L. Peters 10% or I don't care.

If there's involvement by the DoD, then it stands to reason it involves classified material. Not really a mystery there.

What a farce. When governments think it's their money then it's a problem. The money they spend is the taxes collected from the people. so it's not unreasonable to be told what it is being spent on, with no roadblocks. And as for, "classified for security reasons", no, just no. It's too open to abuse that statement.

What do you mean open to abuse? What are you specifically referencing will be abused? Do you think that military's and industry related classified projects should be part of the public domain? I'm not sure how protecting classified projects could be considered a "farce".

Seems that panel made up of important people in the US may not access certain information held by less important people.

That is very inaccurate (and rather silly) way to describe how a Senate panel inquiry is conducted in regard to discussions of classified information.

Don't tell me about silly. I watched the proceedings.

Agreed on that particular proceeding. It was basically those three gentlemen re-telling their stories under oath and the panel lobbing easy "softball" questions. It did nothing to provide any further detail. However, your characterization of  someone's "importance" by position when talking about classified items is not accurate. One could argue that based on one's access and knowledge of items, they would likely be more important.
