Former intelligence official reveals US government is in possession of UFOs and non-human bodies
| Last updated
Aliens are real and so are UFOs, a former Air Force intelligence officer has told US Congress.
Last week, Grusch claimed that the US government covered evidence of a 'non-human' craft from Congress and filed a formal whistleblower complaint alleging he received retaliation for confidential disclosing this to the Intelligence Community Inspector General.
While his initial allegations were made in an explosive interview with The Debrief, the highly anticipated testimony took place earlier today, which saw Grusch give a detailed account of an encounter he and other pilots had with an unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) - the official term the US government uses instead of UFOs - over the Persian Gulf in 2004.
"As we looked around, we noticed some white water off our right side," he said.
"The weather on the day of the incident was as close to a perfect day as you could ask, clear skies, light winds, calm seas (no whitecaps from the waves) so the white water stood out in the large blue ocean.
"As all four looked down we saw a small white Tic Tac shaped object…
"As we pulled nose onto the object at approximately ½ of a mile with the object just left of our nose, it rapidly accelerated and disappeared right in front of our aircraft.
"Our wingman, roughly 8,000ft above us, also lost visual.
"We immediately turned to investigate the white water only to find that it was also gone."
The object, he said, 'was far superior in performance to my brand new F/A-18F, and did not operate with any of the known aerodynamic principles that we expect for objects that fly in our atmosphere.'
When asked: “Do you believe that our government is in possession of UAPs?” the retired major was adamant in his response.
He said: “Absolutely, based on interviewing over 40 witnesses over four years … I know the exact locations.”
Grusch claims that the UAP task force director asked him to identify 'all special access programmes and controlled access programmes we needed to satisfy our congressionally mandated mission'.
“As I've stated publicly already in my NewsNation interview, biologics came with some of these recoveries,” he stated.
The Pentagon has denied Mr Grusch’s claims of a cover up.
In a statement, Defence Department spokeswoman Sue Gough said investigators have not discovered 'any verifiable information to substantiate claims that any programmes regarding the possession or reverse-engineering of extra-terrestrial materials have existed in the past or exist currently'.
"We have not seen anything, and we’re still very early on, that would lead us to believe that any of the objects that we have seen are of alien origin," said Ronald Moultrie, the undersecretary of defence for intelligence and security.
“Any unauthorised system in our airspace we deem as a threat to safety.”
