National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) FORMS NEW UFO OFFICE

Congressman Ruben Gallego Initiates New Amendment to create a Permanent UFO Office

Press Release

BREAKING NEWS!

UPDATED 11:30 pm EDT

Toronto [ZNN] ZNN has learned today that the US Government is on track to take a deep dive into the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. A new amendment has been set in motion for a more complete and long-term investigation of UAP. Many observers in the UAP research community consider this the strongest political response to the UAP issue in 75 years.

Representative Ruben Gallego (Democrat, AZ) authored the amendment that bears his name. In a formal press release about the new amendment Gallego said,
"My amendment creates a permanent office at DoD to comprehensively evaluate these UAPs, and I’m proud to announce its inclusion in the House version of the NDAA.”
[Excerpt]
"An important amendment to the House version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) concerning UFOs and Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) has been approved. Outside of secret projects and clandestine DoD programs, this follow-up to the June 2021 Intelligence Committee report is the first major incentive to reckon with the UFO phenomenon since the Air Force ended Project Blue Book in 1969.

Speaking from a UAP conference in San Marino, former Pentagon insider and UFO whistleblower Luis Elizondo explained, 

“The National Defense Authorization Act is basically the directive by congress to the Department of Defense saying ‘Thou shalt do something if you want to get paid.’ So it’s a big deal.”

Representative Ruben Gallego (Democrat, AZ), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations, authored the amendment that bears his name.

Rep Ruben Gallego (D-AZ)
In a formal press release about the new amendment, Gallego explained the scope and intention of the new mandate, “It is in the national security interest of the United States to know what is flying in our skies. Whether emerging tech from strategic competitors and adversaries or aerial phenomena from unknown
origins, our military must have a full intelligence picture and the tools to respond quickly to these potential threats. My amendment creates a permanent office at DoD to comprehensively evaluate these UAPs...” 

Amendment passed according to Gallego gov. website:

Mr. Hellyer was born August 6, 1923. He was the longest serving member of the Queen's Privy Council.

First elected as a Liberal in the 1949 federal election in the riding of Davenport, he was the youngest person ever elected to that point in the House of Commons of Canada. 

Mr. Hellyer became Minister of National Defence in the cabinet of Lester B. Pearson. This was the most significant period in Hellyer's political career. As Minister of Defence, he oversaw the drastic and controversial integration and unification of the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army, and the Royal Canadian Air Force into a single organization, the Canadian Forces. 

In early September 2005, Mr. Hellyer made headlines by publicly announcing that he believed in the existence of UFOs

In Mr. Hellyer’s address at the Toronto Symposium on UFO Disclosure and Planetary Directions at the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall he shocked the 500 in attendance by stating: “UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head. That is my unequivocal conclusion.” Mr. Hellyer will be remembered as a powerful force of change.

Paul's relentless spirit, unyielding determination and a gentleness bounded only by his unfaltering love for the Creator will not be soon forgotten.

Rest in Peace my friend.

Update to Congress on UAP Issue Within 90 Days

UAP issue now deeply embedded in US National Security apparatus.

Press Release

For Immediate Distribution

Toronto [ZNN] The recent June 25, 2021 release of the Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena by the Office of the US Director of National Intelligence has created reverberations throughout the global mainstream media. 

The report has also lead some very determined and experienced UAP analysts and organizations to burrow deeper and through the 'news' cycle and into the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).


One of those analysts is the prolific John Greenwald of The Black Vault. Greenwald's incessant determination to uncover all aspects of the UAP phenomenon has earned him the notoriety of being the leading Freedom of Information Request research expert in the USA - if not globally.

This time, Greenwald has unearthed information indicating the Office of the Director of National Intelligence is set to further update Congress on the Preliminary Assessment on UAP as directed by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in 90 days.

Despite the general let-down among the UAP research community at large, Greenwald's assessment is that the initial release by the ODNI on June 25 has created a call to action by the US Department of Defence. 

As an indication of how deeply this information on UAP has now become imbedded in the American National Security Apparatus - a source reported to ZNN that some 18 different US military and intelligence agencies are now involved in the tasking and the examination of UAP data and collection procedures.


THE AGENCIES 

"ONDIUAPTF (Office of the National Director of Intelligence) and the ODNI National Intelligence Manager for Aviation drafted this report, with input from USD(I&S), DIA, FBI, NRO, NGA, NSA, Air Force, Army, Navy, Navy/ONI, DARPA, FAA, NOAA, ODNI/NIM-Emerging and Disruptive Technology, ODNI/National Counterintelligence and Security Center, and ODNI/National Intelligence Council."

Since this attribution of assignments to this many agencies has never occurred before - it is an indicator the US government, through the Pentagon - is responding to public and media pressure for more information by ramping up internal procedures.

US DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE REACTS SWIFTLY

In another major related development - Ms. Kathleen Hicks, Deputy Secretary of Defense issued a same-day memo to Pentagon Senior Leadership to reset how US military agencies are to work in concert with regard to the UAP matter.

International media and organizations also responded quickly to how the US Department of Defence has recalibrated its procedures on UAP. One such international organization, ICERwith headquarters in London England and Lisbon Portugal - is preparing for this new narrative.

Gary Heseltine, the Vice President of the International Coalition for Extraterrestrial Research (ICER) - told ZNN:

"The memorandum that was released shortly after the DNI report, signed by Kathleen Hicks, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, is an historic document because it requires all the US military i.e., Navy, Army and Air force to all work together in a formalised way and for them to pass details of future UAP events to the Task Force or whatever body is set up to replace it within 14 days."

Mr. Heseltine went on to say: 

"This document is highly significant in my view and represents a sea change in the attitudes of the US authorities to this subject. It appears that for the first time in US history, at least publicly, that they are going to finally treat the UFO/UAP topic seriously. It is long overdue but nevertheless a welcome change of direction."

The process of public and media education on this critically significant issue is on-going. Readers are encouraged to review Greenwald's work and that of his sources in his posting of June 30, 2021.

IN OTHER NEWS - President Biden's PDB?

Since the publication of the Preliminary Assessment on the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, does President Biden's PDB (Personal Daily Briefing) now include the subject of UAP - despite his flippant May 2021 comment to reporters at the White House?

ZNN will continue to monitor the on-going news on this historic event in the search for what is behind the UAP matter. 

It is clear, much more is yet to unfold.

Canadian Mainstream Media Interviews Victor Viggiani on the US UAP Report Review in the NY Times

“U.S. Finds No Evidence of Alien Technology in Flying Objects, but Can’t Rule It Out, Either”  New York Times

Toronto [ZNN] Renowned Canadian broadcast journalist Jennifer Burke asks all the right questions about the US UAP report in the NY Times during her interview with Victor Viggiani – News Director of ZlandCommunications.

CTV is the largest national television network in Canada. CTV CHANNEL NEWS with Jennifer Burke has a daily viewership of over 1.6 million Canadians. It's international reach over the internet is sizeably larger.

The impact of the NY Times article on the disclosure process is considerable – however it is by no means the entire story.
