Disclosure Diaries Update #16

This past week in Disclosure:

November 28th – CIA's secret office has conducted UFO retrieval missions on at least NINE crash sites around the world, whistleblowers reveal

Matt Ford, Christopher Sharp, and Josh Boswell collaborated on a story that first appeared in the DailyMail, which – based on claims from unnamed sources familiar with the matter – alleges that the CIA's Office of Global Access (OGA) has played a central role in collecting Non-Human Technology/Craft since 2003. The sources go on to claim that at least nine 'non-human craft' have been recovered by the US government – some wrecked from a crash, and two completely intact.

Investigative journalist Ross Coulthart later appeared on NewsNation and corroborated the same claims based on his own sources. Coulthart also went on to state that his sources allege that there are much more than nine recovered (partially/fully intact) craft, as well as Non-Human biologics.

Side Note from Mo: funnily enough, I actually submitted a FOIA request almost 2 months ago regarding UAP-related information from the CIA's Science & Technology Directorate, which the OGA is a part of...looks like I was on the right track...

November 28th – Tucker Carlson hosts Rep. Burchett on his show to discuss the topic of UAP

Tucker Carlson hosted Rep. Burchett on his highly viewed show streamed directly on X. The episode dives into the UAPDA as well as the pushback it has received from various governmental elements.

November 29th – Rep. Mike Turner addresses his concerns with the UAPDA legislation

In a brief exchange with Joe Khalil, Rep. Mike Turner is asked to elaborate on his concerns with regards to the UAPDA language as sponsored by Sens. Schumer & Rounds.

While he didn't actually discuss which specific elements of the bill he takes issue with, Turner instead criticises the UAP Caucus (i.e. the various Reps who have taken it upon themselves to very publicly push for UAP transparency, who he refers to as the alien caucus) for not having spoken with him regarding the topic in the past.

November 29th – Rep. Burchett: "I just talked to the Speaker...& he agreed with me: We just need total disclosure

Rep. Burchett spoke to Askapol and indicated that Speaker Johnson agrees with his opinion that 'total disclosure' is needed. Rep. Burchett also voiced some of his concerns with the UAPDA, which primarily stem from the fact that it was modelled after the JFK-related legislation.

The notable differences between the JFK bill and the UAPDA are explained in a Twitter/X thread here.

November 30th – A bipartisan group of House Representatives hold a UAP-related press conference

Reps. Luna, Burchett, Moskowitz, Ogles, Burlison and Gaetz hosted a press conference that was broadcasted live on X to discuss the UAP topic, the NDAA conference committee, as well as an ongoing concerted effort by the Intelligence Community to stonewall transparency efforts.

Rep. Luna confirmed that Representatives have been granted permission to view David Grusch's IC IG report in their upcoming briefing with the IC IG on December 7th.

November 30th – NBC Meet the Press coverage on UAP

NBC covered the topic of UAP on Meet the Press, a public affairs program, and featured Rep. Tim Burchett, Garret Graff (an author who has recently published an extensive review of the UAP topic), and others.

December 1st – Dr. Kirkpatrick officially departs as head of the Pentagon's UFO office: AARO

Friday, Dec. 1, is Dr. Kirkpatrick’s last day in the office,” Department of Defense spokesperson Sue Gough told DefenseScoop.

He will be succeeded by Tim Phillips (on assignment from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence), who will serve as acting director and lead the office until the Pentagon recruits a permanent replacement.

ONGOING – Republican and Democrat lawmakers are currently reconciling the House and Senate versions of the NDAA, the latter of which includes the Schumer-Rounds UAP Disclosure Act of 2023

As the end of the year draws close, the various Members of Congress must undergo a process of negotiation to reconcile the 2 versions of the National Defense Authorization Act (House & Senate version). Crucially, the bipartisan Schumer-Rounds UAP Disclosure Act of 2023 is an amendment included in the Senate's version of the NDAA.

Rep. Burchett also passed his own UAP-related amendment into the House's version of the NDAA back in July, which prompted Members of the House (such as Reps. Gaetz, Luna, Burlison) to push to have this language included as an addition or even replace the UAPDA entirely. The scope of Rep. Burchett's amendment is much narrower and less nuanced than the UAPDA.

According to a variety of sources, the UAPDA is facing significant pushback from a small number of powerful Republican lawmakers, namely: Rep. Mike Turner, Rep. Mike Johnson, Sen. Mitch McConnell, and Rep. Mike Rogers.

These figures are allegedly attempting to remove certain enforcement clauses from the legislation, which would significantly reduce the efficacy of the proposed amendment. In particular, they are seeking to eliminate the eminent domain, subpoena powers, and the Review Board clauses.

Given the severity and credibility of the claims vis-a-vis rampant breaches of Congressional oversight (as specifically referenced in the UAPDA language), it is not yet clear why Members of Congress would seek to water down the bill and massively reduce/eliminate the independent investigative powers.

Danny Sheehan has stated that the President, Chuck Schumer, and the majority of Republican/Democrat lawmakers are all in agreement that the UAPDA is the best solution going forward.

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.”
  • Members of Congress were meant to discuss UAP-related matters in a SCIF with the Intelligence Community Inspector General on the 16th of November, however this session has been delayed until December 7th
  • While the US Senate passed the NDAA for FY24 – which included the UAP Disclosure Act of 2023 as an amendment – the coming weeks will still require Senators and Members of Congress to reconcile the two chambers’ versions of the NDAA and produce a final compromise bill. Most commentators expect this to happen before the end of December 2023.

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.
  • 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 we might expect that to occur.
  • 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)
