David Grusch, an Air Force veteran, claims he has viewed evidence of a UFO crash retrieval program secretly run by the U.S. and says the government has even found intact bodies of nonhumans.
Grusch, a former member of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, has reportedly provided Congress and the intelligence community's inspector general, classified information about the covert program, The DeBrief reported.
Grusch, 36, served as the reconnaissance office's representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force from 2019-2021. The task force was set up to probe UFO existence.
He said details of the UFO retrieval program and recovery of the nonhuman bodies has been illegally withheld from Congress. He has filed a complaint claiming that he was the victim of illegal retaliation for making confidential disclosures.
"These are retrieving nonhuman origin technical vehicles, call it spacecraft if you will, nonhuman exotic origin vehicles that have either landed or crashed," Grusch said in an interview with NewsNation. "I thought it was totally nuts, and I thought at first I was being deceived, it was a ruse.
"People started to confide in me. Approach me. I have plenty of senior, former, intelligence officers that came to me, many of which I knew almost my whole career, that confided in me that they were part of a program.
"They told me, based on their oral testimony, and they provided me documents and other proof, that there was in fact a program that the UAP Task Force was not read into."
He maintained the U.S. has been lying to the American public for years.
"There is a sophisticated disinformation campaign targeting the U.S. populace which is extremely unethical and immoral," Grusch said. "We're definitely not alone.
"The data points, quite empirically, that we're not alone."
And as for the bodies he claimed were on the UFOs, he said, "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."
Karl Nell, who recently retired as an Army colonel who was the Army's liaison for the UAP Task Force from 2021 to 2022 had worked with Grusch, and says the whistleblower is "beyond reproach."
