"Project Disclosure" news:

On Wednesday, May 9th 2001, over twenty military, intelligence, government, corporate and scientific witnesses came forward at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to establish the reality of UFOs or extraterrestrial vehicles, extraterrestrial life forms, and resulting advanced energy and propulsion technologies. The weight of this first-hand testimony, along with supporting government documentation and other evidence, establishes without any doubt the reality of these phenomena.

The event:

Dr. Steven M. Greer, director of the Disclosure Project which is hosting the event, has made an ambitious announcement which I published on 04.28.2001 in my news section, and indeed, he kept his word.

His UFO group CSETI started "The Disclosure Project", a non-profit research organization, calling for open Congressional hearings on the UFO/Extraterrestrial presence, and for legislation that will ban space-based weapons. Congressional hearings were last held in 1968 by the House Science and Astronautics Committee (90th Congress, 2nd Session, Committee Print No. 7. "Symposium on Unidentified Flying Objects.")

The event lasted two and a half hours and was held in the National Press Club in Washington DC, USA, on Wednesday, May 9, 2001. The event itself was professionally run and very well received. There is material now "out there" for intelligent public discussion of UFOs and ET.

The content:

Steven Greer's group made references to Zero-Point Energy, anti-gravity, and that advanced technologies hold the keys to "stopping global warming" and "ending the energy crisis," among other benefits. A ban of the weaponization of space was a also a focus of the organizers. But this is only one part of the event, probably the most criticized and controversial side of Steven Greer's agenda.

The novelty of the act, was the gathering of 21 present in flesh "official" people many with solid, impressive and public credentials, former military officials Of course, such high quality witnesses have come forward many times already in the past, but isolated and with low or no media attention. this time it was a gathering, and it took place in front of a decent media panel, including deveral TV cameras.

These witnesses constitute only a small portion of a vast pool of identified present or former military, intelligence, corporate, aviator, flight control, law enforcement officers, scientists and other witnesses, who would testify at Congressional hearings if they are granted immunity when they break their security oaths.

The Project has identified several hundred witnesses throughout the world and spanning every branch of the armed services, the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), DIA, CIA, NASA, Russia, UK, and other agencies and countries. Over 100 have been videotaped; 70 have been transcribed into edited testimony. Videotaped summary of the testimony and an in-depth briefing document with witness transcripts are available at the press conference and published on the web.

The opportunity was given to interview a number of the 21 witnesses one-on-one, without intervention or spinning by the organizers.

Steven Greer:

For the first time, a respectable number of officials having UFO sightings or knowledge are saying, together, in front of a bank of 12-plus TV cameras and "real" press, that they will testify before Congress.

Regardless of the debate about CSETI's agenda or competence, and although some views from CSETI are not widely accepted by the whole ufology world, this very well thought and well organized event has been extremely important because it was the best executed such initiative ever.

Media reports review:

So far, there has been quite decent web news coverage. Here are some reference and my review.
