In recent days, a historic Congressional hearing was held before the House Intelligence Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee. The topic of interest: unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), and the Pentagon’s Airborne Object Identification Management and Synchronization Group (AOIMSG).

“UAPs are unexplained. It’s true, but they are real,” said Representative Andre Carson during the recent House Panel hearing. “They need to be investigated and many threats they pose need to be mitigated.” Featuring testimony from Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security Ronald S. Moultrie and Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott W. Bray, the hearings have become one of the most talked-about developments in the recent debate over UAP, as well as the broader history of the UFO phenomenon. This week, we take a look at the hearings, and the wide range of responses to them on The Micah Hanks Program.

  1. Hey Micah, long time and three grandchildren later, hoping you’re well and Caleb, too.

    In the story, you have a link to the original story (Politico) and in there is a photo capture of a video moment in said hearing. Do you know if that is a verified video of a saucer that they are viewing?
    Thank you, Micah!
