We have never been closer to proper and clear disclosure of UFOs than now. Rep. Mike Gallagher has proposed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 to protect people reporting UAP/UFO information.
Representative Mike Gallagher has proposed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2023 to protect those with potential knowledge of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and to increase the number of reports to their subject.
Gallagher spokesman Jordan Dunn told The War Zone the amendment would create a clear process for reporting UAPs within government and provide protections for whistleblowers. Therefore, it would ensure the safety of those involved in the disclosure and increase the number of people who come forward and talk about these phenomena.
The US military and government contractors have always been reluctant to release information about these incidents, regardless of its validity and credibility.
Additionally, there have long been allegations that government and defense contractors are covering up UFO evidence and programs.
In light of these factors, the proposed amendment will give those who hold sensitive information about the phenomenon “complete freedom” that can lead to declassification without fear of reprisal from their employers.
The text of the document clarifies that regardless of any prior confidentiality agreement, written or oral, persons who report knowledge of UAPs, often referred to as UFOs, will not violate federal classified information laws by doing so.
The Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) must also establish “a secure system” to receive reports of “any event” relating to UAPs and any government activity or program related to UAPs, as provided for in the amendment. The AOIMSG is responsible for investigating UAPs on behalf of the Secretary of Defense and the Director of National Intelligence.
Under the AOIMSG, which replaced the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, the reporting system is to be administered by “designated and widely known employees or contractors who are readily accessible and have appropriate authorization.” “.
As the document reveals, all information must first be screened to “prevent unauthorized public communication or compromise of properly classified military and intelligence related systems, programs, and activities.” , including all categories and levels of special access and compartmentalized access programs, current, historical and future”.
For those who report UAP incidents and information, federal agencies and contractors working with the government cannot take action, including suspension of security clearances.
In addition, individuals who are victims of retaliation “may bring a private civil action seeking all appropriate remedies, including injunctive relief and compensatory and punitive damages, against the government or other employer who took personal action, in the United States Court of Federal Claims,” the amendment reads.
Mike Gallagher, a longtime advocate for increased transparency on UFOs, is in favor of the flow of information about them.
If his amendment to the 2023 NDAA passes all required legislative hurdles, it could open a tap of information on more UFO incidents. As a result, people who have been forced to remain silent or adhere to confidentiality agreements may no longer be subject to a legal gag order.
In May 2022, Gallagher was interviewed on The Pat Macafee show . He spoke about UFOs and the questions they raise and even proposed that unidentified flying objects could be piloted by humans from the future.
During the interview, Gallagher discussed the main hypotheses that are currently being discussed around unidentified aerial phenomena detected in restricted airspace by the military, both from the ground and in the air and at sea.
Gallagher suggested that UFOs could be the result of an enemy nation’s secret technology or that they are objects of extraterrestrial origin.
And while he acknowledges that there isn’t enough data yet to lean towards one of the two options, there is a third that seems “extremely interesting, and this option sees UFOs as not aliens, but interdimensional beings, or beings from the future.
