A former US intelligence officer has made astonishing claims about a secret UFO retrieval program operated by the United States government.
David Charles Grusch, a retired member of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), revealed that he was part of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, a task force assigned to investigate unidentified flying objects, which are now known as “unidentified anomalous phenomena” (UAP).
Grusch disclosed this classified information to Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General, alleging that he faced illegal retaliation for doing so. His revelations were reported by journalists Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal on The Debrief. The duo previously wrote about the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerial Threat Intelligence (AATIP) program in 2017 on the The New York Times.
According to Grusch, the US government, along with its allies and defense contractors, has been recovering fragments of UAP for decades. These fragments have undergone analysis, which concluded that they possess exotic origins and unique characteristics indicative of non-human intelligence.
“We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities,” he told The Debrief. “The material includes intact and partially intact vehicles.”
Discussions about “alien alloys” and materials of unknown origin have been ongoing among whistleblowers, conspiracy theorists, and government officials. In a separate interview with NewsNation, Grusch claimed that the US possesses a significant number of spacecraft of non-human origin.
“These are retrieving non-human origin technical vehicles, call it spacecraft if you will, non-human exotic origin vehicles that have either landed or crashed,” Grusch shared.
“We’re definitely not alone,” Grusch told the publication. “The data points, quite empirically that we’re not alone.” The former US intelligence officer also said that the US government has retrieved more than exotic spacecraft.
“Well, naturally, when you recover something that’s either landed or crashed. Sometimes you encounter dead pilots and believe it or not, as fantastical as that sounds, it’s true.”
Although he hasn’t seen photographic evidence himself, he stated that he has been provided with evidence and oral testimonies by current and former intelligence officers. However, the nature of this evidence remains undisclosed.
Grusch’s claims coincide with former intelligence official Christopher Mellon’s call for increased transparency regarding UAP programs in an article he wrote for Politico that was published over the weekend.
Mellon, a proponent of disclosure, has been advocating for the truth about UAPs since 2017. He emphasized the importance of sharing the truth with the American people and urged the government to validate the potentially explosive information in the right hands.
“It would be the modern equivalent of repressing Galileo’s insights regarding the solar system or Darwin’s theory of evolution. It hinders scientific and technological progress and undermines faith in government,” he wrote, pertaining to the government suppressing what he calls “vitally important information.”
The revelations have garnered attention from other intelligence community insiders, such as Jonathan Grey, who corroborated Grusch’s claims, emphasizing the global nature of the phenomenon. Grey, described by The Debrief as “a generational officer of the United States Intelligence Community with a Top-Secret Clearance who currently works for the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC),” urged for a global solution to the non-human intelligence phenomenon.
“The non-human intelligence phenomenon is real. We are not alone,” he said. “Retrievals of this kind are not limited to the United States. This is a global phenomenon, and yet a global solution continues to elude us.”
The Department of Defense spokesperson stated that the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), an expanded version of Grusch’s former task force, has not discovered verifiable evidence supporting claims of possession or reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial materials. AARO was established in 2022 to investigate unidentified flying objects and other phenomena in the air, sea, on land, and in space.
