Former spy doubles down on UFOs: what we know so far

Crashed alien craft, recovered non-human “biologics,” a huge cover-up, and a list of witnesses. That’s the testimony under oath from former US intelligence official David Grusch.

Grusch’s testimony before the US Congressional Committee is one of the hottest files on X (Twitter). He says that the US government possesses unidentified crashed extraterrestrial craft and even non-human bodies.

Those statements, shared with US politicians, were anticipated, as the former spy turned whistleblower has shared his findings with the media before. Criticized for a previous lack of specificity, Grusch didn’t provide much detail, as he could not “discuss in a public setting” without “compromising” the investigation.

Grusch, 36, is a decorated former combat officer in Afghanistan and a veteran of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the National Reconnaissance Office. He served as the reconnaissance office’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force. A retired Army Colonel, Karl E. Nell, who worked with Grusch in 2021-2022, characterized Grusch as “beyond reproach,” according to an article in The Debrief.

Grusch claims that the US federal government maintains a highly secretive UFO retrieval program and possesses multiple spacecraft of non-human origin and the corpses of deceased pilots.

“Biologics came with some of these recoveries,” Grusch said. “Non-human. And that was the assessment of people with direct knowledge on the program I talked to that are currently still on the program.”

He promised to give a specific, cooperative witness list after the two-hour-long hearing.

“I have to be careful to describe what I've seen firsthand and not in this environment. But I could answer that question behind closed doors”

Pilots “fear professional repercussions”

The other witness was Lieutenant Ryan Graves, the executive director of Americans for Safe Aerospace, a former US Navy F-18 pilot with his own UAP experience.

“I’ve experienced advanced UAP firsthand, and I'm here to voice the concerns of more than 30 commercial aircrew and military veterans who have confided their similar encounters with me,” he said.

According to him, the stigma attached to UAP silences commercial pilots, who fear professional repercussions. His squadron encountered UAPs repeatedly – they could remain stationary despite strong winds.

“These sightings are not rare or isolated. They’re routine. Military aircrew and commercial pilots, trained observers whose lives depend on accurate identification, are frequently witnessing these phenomena,” Graves continued.

He told a story about his encounter with UAP in 2014. During a training mission, two F-18 Super Hornets were split by an unknown craft, described as a dark gray or a black cube inside a transparent sphere. It came within 50ft of the lead aircraft and was estimated to be 5 to 15ft in diameter. The mission commander terminated the flight immediately and returned to base.

“Soon, these encounters became so frequent that aircrew would discuss the risk of UAP as part of their regular pre-flight briefs,” Graves said.

Reportedly, UAPs fly in low earth orbit, making inexplicable maneuvers like right-hand turns and retrograde orbits or j-hooks. He also mentioned that more than 30 witnesses have come forward and almost 5000 Americans have joined the fight for transparency and safe aerospace.

The third witness is retired Navy Commander David Fravor, a squadron leader who worked as a naval aviator for 18 years. In 2004, he had his own experience with UAPs, which he called “Tic Tacs.” Those were moving “very abruptly over the water like a ping pong ball,” without rotors or visible control surfaces like wings.

“The technology that we faced was far superior to anything that we had,” he concluded. “You're talking something can go into space, go someplace, drop down in a matter of seconds, do whatever it wants, and leave. And there's nothing we can do about it. Nothing.”

According to Grusch, "substantive evidence that white-collar crime" took place to conceal UFO programs, and people may have been injured or killed to conceal the programs.

I know of multiple colleagues of mine that got physically injured”.

Experts still waiting for evidence

However, relevant experts, including scientists and historians, have responded skeptically, highlighting the lack of concrete evidence and specific details. Grusch’s assertions rely on hearsay, and he did not provide corroborating data.

"Without data or material evidence, we are at an impasse on evaluating these claims," Professor Joshua Semeter from NASA's UAP independent study team concluded in June.

Some of Grusch’s claims sound straight out of Indiana Jones. He told the New York Post that the first crashed spacecraft was discovered in Italy in 1933, when dictator Benito Mussolini was in power. The UFO was then brought to the USA in 1944 or 1945 with the support of the Vatican, writes.

The Pentagon has denied Grusch’s claims of a cover-up. Spokesperson said investigators had not discovered “any verifiable information to substantiate claims that any programs regarding the possession or reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial materials have existed in the past or exist currently,” The Guardian writes.
