Disclosure Diaries Update #37

This past week in Disclosure:

Apr 22 – John Oliver's Last Week Tonight covers the UFO/UAP topic

In the latest segment of the Last Week Tonight show, John Oliver covers the UFO topic. Despite omitting key recent events such as the penning of the Schumer-Rounds UAP Disclosure Act of 2023, the episode portrays a balanced and relatively nuanced view of the UAP issue.

Ultimately, the takeaway of the video is that we do in fact need honest inquiry into UFO sightings. Ideally, those inquiries should be data-driven, fact-based, and (in their words) boring as fuck.

Apr 22 – Christopher K. Mellon reveals additional conversations with UAP investigators

Following a FOIA release triggered by the BlackVault that exposed private communications between (amongst others) Christopher Mellon and Dr. Kirkpatrick, the former took to X to publish additional snippets from conversations with unnamed Senior USG Officials.

The screenshot, which dates back to 2020, indicates that the investigation into alleged UAP Crash Retrieval programs was already well underway. Furthermore, the exchange explicitly refers to a "recovered UAP that landed in Kingman, AZ in the 50s".

Apr 24 – AARO releases a case resolution report for the 2023 Eglin Air Force Base UAP incident

AARO published its case resolution report for an incident that was initially brought to light by Rep. Matt Gaetz during the July 2023 UAP Hearing.

The report ultimately concludes (with moderate confidence) that the object was "very likely a lighter-than-air object, such as a large commercial lighting balloon".

Based on the report, it is still unclear how exactly four commercial lighting balloons would end up near-stationary in a diamond formation at 16,000ft in the vicinity of a military training area.

While a previous FOIA request regarding this incident revealed that there was a video associated with this event, the Air Force has since amended their response and the AARO report posits "the pilot could not record video of the event because the aircraft’s video recording equipment was inoperable prior to and during the aircraft’s flight."

Apr 25 – UAPs should be a top priority, according to Senator Rubio

Speaking to Askapol, Sen. Rubio underscored the urgency of the UAP situation (no matter what the ultimate origin is of the objects themselves):

"People always want to immediately default to, y’know, aliens, extraterrestrial, but the fact of the matter is if there are things flying overhead in our country that aren't supposed to be there and they aren’t ours, that should be among our highest priorities"

Apr 26 – AARO's report on the Eglin AFB UAP incident faces harsh criticism from Rep. Matt Gaetz

In a public X post, Rep. Gaetz calls the integrity of AARO's case resolution report into question:

"Last year, when I attempted to receive a briefing with the flight crew who witnessed the UAP at Eglin AFB, the Air Force tried to block me. This report by the AARO is incomplete and does not reflect all of the information that I was shown.

I believe all of the information regarding the sighting should be released to the public, including pictures from the pilot and radar signatures."

Things to look out for in the near future:


  • According to Senator Gillibrand – a public hearing in line with AARO's latest report can be expected soon, saying –"I'll probably have another hearing aligned with that public report.”

Beyond / unknown

  • Following the UAP hearing on the 26th of July, Members of Congress have called for a select committee with subpoena authority, to “go about the task of collecting information from the Pentagon and elsewhere” on unidentified flying objects. There have been conflicting messages from various Members of Congress on whether this is likely to happen anytime soon.

    Note – a select subcommittee was formally requested on March 13th.
  • Reps. Moskowitz, Luna, and Burchett have repeatedly stated their intent to hold field hearings to overcome stonewalling from the Pentagon and military establishment

    "I think we [Congress] should try to get into one of these places [housing UAP evidence]...and if they won't let us in I think we should have a field hearing right outside the building...and the military will have to explain why that is." – Rep. Moskowitz (D)

    It is currently unknown when exactly we might expect that to occur, however as of Jan 12 – Rep. Luna confirmed: "I feel confident that we have enough evidence to move forward with our first field hearing. @mattgaetz @JaredEMoskowitz @timburchett . We will be announcing details soon."
  • Several journalists have indicated that first-hand witnesses of the alleged UAP legacy programs are in the process of providing testimony/evidence to the relevant authorities (e.g. the IC IG) and/or are on the verge of making public statements in the near future (Example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4)
  • David Grusch has received additional clearances through DOPSR to discuss some of his (alleged) first-hand knowledge of Legacy programs. He has mentioned he may be covering more of this information in an upcoming Op-Ed
  • Some commentators have speculated that the architects of the UAPDA (e.g. Sens. Schumer/Rounds et al) are working diligently behind the scenes to continue furthering serious legislative UAP transparency efforts

Need a refresher on what's happened so far?
