The New York Times
Yesterday, the New York Times broke a story that the a sub-committee of the US Congress House of Representatives would hold an open hearing about UAP for the first time in over 50 years. Written by Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal, it revealed that the Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation (3C) sub-committee of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence would hold open meetings on Tuesday 17 May 2022.
Today, a check of the relevant US Congressional website for meetings to be held by the 3C sub-committee, found that there is indeed such a meeting scheduled. The website shows the following detail:
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (Open and Closed)
Tuesday May 17, 2022 Time 10:00AM Location 2360 RHOB."
Clicking on the relevant link brings up another window which states:
"The closed portion will start at 12:30PM in HVC-304."
The NYT article advises that the presenters at the hearing will be Ronald S. Moultrie, Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, and Scott W Bray, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence.
The NYT article refers only to open hearing. This further detail reveals that there will be open and closed portions to the hearing. This, no doubt, will be a cause for concern for UAP researchers as this is probably not the full transparency "Open" hearings which they have been looking for. Just as previous briefings of numerous Congressional committees have had both an "open" and "classified" section; and the June 2021 Office of National Intelligence Preliminary UAP assessment paper had an "unclassified" and a "classified" version, UAP researchers are going to be left speculating what will be contained in the "Closed" 17 May hearing?
