Set your calendar and tie a string around your finger, because June 14, 2024 is going to be a major milestone for UFO disclosure. The reason involves a government agency called AARO and a certain research assignment they’ve been given by Congress.
Let me explain.
Recently, Congress has received several whistleblower complaints alleging that there are secret government programs that posses crashed UFOs also known as UAPs. The whistleblowers are saying that this information is not only being hidden from the American people but also from Congress.
For the full scoop on the most recent bombshell whistleblower, check out our comprehensive breakdown of whistleblower David Grusch’s claims here.
Congress reacted to this information by establishing an investigation – funding and empowering AARO to act on their behalf. AARO, the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, is tasked with creating robust reporting when to comes to UAP activity – coordinating the data collection and submitting it to Congress on a regular basis at least twice a year.
But AARO has another task. A far more interesting task if you ask me. The Historical Record Report.
AARO’s Historical Record Report
Every year Congress passes a new defense spending bill, the NDAA, and that bill is extremely long. In the 2022 version of the NDAA, also known as FY22, Congress established AARO and detailed its responsibilities. Among them was the responsibility to research deep into the history of UFOs and to see if the government is hiding any secrets.
The most recent NDAA, also known as FY23, further clarified AARO’s responsibilities.
In summary, AARO is to write the mother of all research papers and present it to Congress. They are tasked with looking through government records going all the way back to 1945 and writing a report detailing everything the government knows about the topic. Everything the government has done – with aliens, with UAP, and even with suppressing the topic. Congress wants to know all of it.
And that report is due on June 14, 2024.
Let’s look at the exact language below from Section 6802 of FY23 (which is actually amending Section 1683 of FY22 because everything in Washington has to be complicated):
Section 1683 (j) HISTORICAL RECORD REPORT
(A) IN GENERAL. Not later than 540 days after the date of the enactment of the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, the Director of the Office shall submit to the congressional defense committees, the congressional intelligence committees, and congressional leadership a written report detailing the historical record of the United States Government relating to unidentified anomalous phenomena, including—
(i) the records and documents of the intelligence community;
(ii) oral history interviews;
(iii) open source analysis;
(iv) interviews of current and former Government officials;
(v) classified and unclassified national archives including any records any third party obtained pursuant to section 552 of title 5, United States Code; and
(vi) such other relevant historical sources as the Director of the Office considers appropriate.
(B) OTHER REQUIREMENTS.—The report submitted under subparagraph (A) shall—
(i) focus on the period beginning on January 1, 1945, and ending on the date on which the Director of the Office completes activities under this subsection;and
(ii) include a compilation and itemization of the key historical record of the involvement of the intelligence community with unidentified anomalous phenomena, including—
(I) any program or activity that was protected by restricted access that has not been explicitly and clearly reported to Congress;
(II) successful or unsuccessful efforts to identify and track unidentified anomalous phenomena; and
(III) any efforts to obfuscate, manipulate public opinion, hide, or otherwise provide incorrect unclassified or classified information about unidentified anomalous phenomena or related activities.
Since the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 passed on December 23, 2023 (in the form of the FY23 NDAA – again because it’s complicated), The Historical Record Report will come due 540 days after that on June 14, 2024.
Congress has also placed some additional safeguards to make sure the Director of AARO does what he is assigned to do and doesn’t, say, hide the all of the evidence instead. They are doing this by assigning several auditors from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to go look over AARO’s shoulder and make sure everything is being done properly. Since the GAO is an independent, non-partisan agency that works for Congress, this provides yet another check against misconduct on the part of the Director of AARO or the Pentagon or of the Executive Branch in general.
Section 6803 (b) AUDIT
(1) IN GENERAL. Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Comptroller General of the United States shall identify appropriately cleared personnel of the Government Accountability Office to audit the historical record report process … including personnel to conduct work on-site as appropriate.
Congress has also assigned the Comptroller General (the head of the GAO) to keep Congress informed with frequent updates on the status of the Historical Record Report.
Section 6803 (c) VERBAL BRIEFINGS
Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, and semiannually thereafter, the Comptroller General of the United States shall verbally brief the congressional intelligence committees, the congressional defense committees, and congressional leadership on the progress of the Office with respect to the historical record report described in section 1683…
So will we get disclosure on June 14, 2024?
Assuming that AARO is able to meet the deadline, Congress will still need time to digest this highly classified report. The general public will not have access to read it. In fact, not everyone within Congress will have access – only congressional leadership as well as those on the congressional defense committees and the congressional intelligence committees.
At that point, it will be up to us to exert pressure on these Congressmen to declassify and disseminate the report to the public. With sufficient support, we could see that happen soon afterwards by an act of Congress. This will either be signed by the President or vetoed. If vetoed, Congress will have to vote to override the veto.
So it could take a while. But there can be no denying that disclosure is moving forward. Gaining momentum. And if we keep this up, we could blow the lid off this thing in the coming years. If that happens, AARO’s Historical Record Report may be the very document by which we finally find out what the government has been hiding all this time.
