In a surprising revelation before the US Congress, a former military intelligence officer has claimed under oath that aliens exist and that the US government has recovered extraterrestrial spacecraft.
Reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) have long intrigued the United States, and now former intelligence employee David Grusch testified on Wednesday about intriguing conversations with officials.
First-Hand Knowledge of Alien Craft:
During the testimony, Grusch asserted that government officials have first-hand knowledge of UFOs from which “non-human” remains have been retrieved. He claims to have gathered this information from more than 40 insiders.
UFOs as a National Security Issue:
According to CNN, Grusch referred to these unidentified aerial objects as a national security concern for the USA. Due to the sensitive nature of most of his information, he was unable to discuss it in a public hearing. The US Department of Defense initially refrained from commenting on his statements, as reported by CBS.
Calls for Government Transparency:
Following Grusch’s testimony, congressional members called for increased government transparency on the issue. “We will look into what we can do to make more of this information public,” said Republican Representative Glenn Grothman. CBS quoted Republican Representative Tim Burchett from Tennessee saying, “We will uncover the cover-up. I hope this is just the beginning of many more hearings and that many more people will speak up on this topic.”
Speaking to journalists on Wednesday, John Kirby, the National Security Council’s Communications Director, emphasized that such sightings are taken seriously and investigated. He added, “We do not have the answers for what these phenomena are.” In January, there was a congressional hearing on the topic for the first time in decades. In recent years, the US Department of Defense has presented reports citing dozens of unexplained aerial sightings. However, there is no evidence suggesting secret technology from other countries or the existence of extraterrestrial life, as stated by the authorities.
