The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure (CHD) began earlier today, Monday April 29 in Washington, DC to discuss extraterrestrial visitations to Earth and as well as the US government’s knowledge, involvement and perhaps consent to engage the people (and often animals) of this planet.

Held at the National Press Club in the country’s capital, the hearing will reportedly involve some forty researchers and military and government agency witnesses who will testify for thirty hours over a five day period before former members of the United States Congress including Former Senator Mike Gravel (Dem/Lib, AK), Former Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick (Dem, MI), Former Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (Dem, CA), Former Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (Dem, OR), Former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (Rep, MD) and Former Congressman Merrill Cook (Rep, UT).

The mission statement and motto for the hearing is “If the Congress won't do its job, the people will.” And that is exactly what a panel of experts in the field of UFO research are endeavoring to do.

That panel of witnesses and researchers such as Americans Stephen Bassett, Dr. Steven Greer, Richard Dolan, Linda Moulton Howe, Stanton Friedman, as well as astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, several officers from the United States Air Force including Captain Kevin Randle, Captain Robert Salas and Lieutenant Colonel Richard French.

Additionally, international witnesses include Paul Hellyer and Grant Cameron from Canada, Nick Pope and Gary Heseltine from the UK, Alejandro Chionetti from Argentina, Col. Ariel Sanchez from Uruguay, Col. Oscar Santa-Maria from Peru, A. J. Gavaerd from Brazil and Roberto Pinotti from Italy.

CHD organizer and political activist Stephen Bassett wants the hearing to primarily reach mainstream media and the Congress.

Bassett stated that his intent is for Congress to investigate this issue again and that it’s time for the media to realize that this is the “greatest news story of all time.”

The ultimate goal, however, is to have the President of the United States to go before the American people and finally acknowledge that the “phenomena we have been experiencing for at least the last 65 years is, in fact, being generated by an extraterrestrial non-human intelligence engaging the planet Earth.”

The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington, DC will run April 29 through May 3, 2013 and is being webcast via
