A recent UFO disclosure bill passed by Congress has been criticized by some transparency advocates for its perceived lack of transparency. While the measure directs the government to disclose certain records about UFOs (now officially referred to as “unidentified anomalous phenomena” or UAP), it imposes a 25-year waiting period for making these records public. Additionally, the president can still classify records for national security reasons even after the waiting period. The bipartisan legislation, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, aims to collect government documents about UAPs and technologies of unknown origin, with the goal of potentially revealing information about non-human intelligences on Earth. However, its limitations have left some hoping for more comprehensive transparency regarding UFOs.
