Several hundred former military and intelligence employees have come forward to testify about their encounters with possibly extraterrestrial related phenomena and perhaps highly classified energy and propulsion technologies. Many claim to have worked within highly compartmentalised projects. A lot of them are prepared to testify before the US congress under oath.
Testimonies also come from former astronauts, civilian pilots, politicians, and scientists.
From April 29th to May 3rd 2013 activist and lobbyist Stephen Bassett hosted The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington DC. Several former members of the US congress participated in this mock-up hearing at the National Press Club (NPC). They were invited to listen to the testimonies from retired military employees and UFO-researchers. Several of the former had had UFO-encounters during their work with nuclear weapons during the cold war.
On September 27th 2010 researcher Robert Hastings and former missile launch officer Robert Sallas organised a press conference at the NPC. Here, several former employees from the US armed forces confirmed that they have observed extremely advanced aviation technology in the proximity of nuclear weapons. The witnesses had signed affidavits. Download Robert Sallas' signed affidavit (PDF).
On November 12th 2007 the Coalition for Freedom of Information and film producer James Fox held a press conference - also at the NPC. Here, former Governor Fife Symington testified that he had seen the enormous delta shaped craft move silently across the sky in Arizona in 1997. This extraordinary V-shaped "aircraft" was also witnessed by hundreds of citizens. Former military employees and civilians from around the world also told their stories at this event.

|Former Governor Fife Symington:
"In 1997, during my second term as governor of Arizona, I saw something that defied logic and challenged my reality.
I witnessed a massive delta-shaped, craft silently navigate over Squaw Peak, a mountain range in Phoenix, Arizona. It was truly breathtaking. I was absolutely stunned because I was turning to the west looking for the distant Phoenix Lights.
To my astonishment this apparition appeared; this dramatically large, very distinctive leading edge with some enormous lights was traveling through the Arizona sky.
As a pilot and a former Air Force Officer, I can definitively say that this craft did not resemble any man-made object I'd ever seen. And it was certainly not high-altitude flares because flares don't fly in formation.
The incident was witnessed by hundreds -- if not thousands -- of people in Arizona, and my office was besieged with phone calls from very concerned Arizonians."
