A now-former intelligence official says he has given United States Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General extensive classified information about programs involving recovered "spacecrafts" and "intact and partially intact vehicles.”
, David Charles Grusch, a decorated former combat officer and a veteran of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the National Reconnaissance Office, has submitted information to Congress regarding unidentified flying objects, which are now officially called “unidentified anomalous phenomena,” or UAP.
Grusch served as the reconnaissance office’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force from 2019-2021, and the NGA's co-lead for UAP analysis from 2021-2022. The task force was specifically established to investigate the phenomena, but Grusch said that UAP Task Force was "refused access" to the government's retrieval program.
The 36-year-old said that recoveries of both partial fragments as well as intact vehicles have been made for decades through to present day. Grusch says the information has been illegally withheld from Congress and that he suffered illegal retaliation for his confidential disclosures. He has officially filed a complaint.
In an interview with
, Grusch said that the "UAP task force was refused access to a broad crash retrieval program." The whistleblower was then asked by journalist Ross Coulthart what he meant by "crash retrieval."
"These are retrieving non-human origin technical vehicles, you know, call it spacecraft if you will, non-human, exotic origin vehicles that have either landed or crashed."
"We have spacecraft from another species?" Coulthart replied. "We do, yeah," Grusch responded.
Responding to the idea that the government has lied to its citizens, the ex-intelligence official said that "there's a sophisticated disinformation campaign targeting the U.S. populous, which is extremely unethical and immoral."
"The data empirically indicates that we are not alone," he continued. "Naturally, when you recover something that's either landed or crashed, sometimes you encounter dead pilots ... It's true," he added.
Sue Gough, a Department of Defense spokesperson, responded to the outlet and stated that "to date, [the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office] AARO has 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."
"AARO's historical review of records and testimonies is ongoing and due to Congress by June 2024. AARO welcomes the opportunity to speak with any former or current government employee or contractor who believes they have information relevant to the historical review," the spokesperson added.
Grusch also told the Debrief that he hopes his revelations provide a sociological shock and cause "the nations of the world to re-assess their priorities."
