Hearings will be held in one of the subcommittees specializing in counterintelligence, combating terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The speakers will be Deputy Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Ronald Maltry and Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray.

Adam Schiff stressed that there must be full transparency on the issue of UFO sightings, intelligence and the US federal authorities should play a key role in ensuring that reports are presented in the right light and adequately analyzed.

“The purpose of the hearings is to give the public the opportunity to get information about one of the greatest mysteries of modern times directly from experts in this field and leaders of the intelligence community, and to break the vicious circle of excessive secrecy and speculation with the help of truth and openness,” the congressman said.

Subcommittee chairman Andre Carson noted that Maltry and Bray’s presentations would “know everything you need to know” about UFO incidents. He added that the US authorities should seriously assess and respond to all such cases, especially those that are not fully understood.

After the open hearings in Congress, there will be a closed session where officials can speak out without the risk of leaking classified information.

In November last year, it became known that Pentagon announced on the creation of a new unit within the structure of the US Department of Defense to investigate data on unidentified flying objects. The work of the reorganized Aircraft Approach Identification and Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) will be controlled by the military and intelligence agencies.
