A former Air Force intelligence officer testified that the U.S. government has been concealing a long-established program that has been retrieving and reverse-engineering unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP), commonly known as unidentified flying objects (UFOs), in a hearing that the executive branch agencies have withheld information about the mysterious objects last Wednesday, July 26 (PDT).
Retired Maj. David Grusch, who served as an intelligence officer in the Air Force and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) for 14 years, shared his testimony as he appeared before House Oversight Committee’s national security subcommittee.
According to Grusch, he became a whistleblower after he faced retaliation for speaking out about his discovery, though he didn’t emphasize the retaliatory tactics saying there is an ongoing investigation.
In his testimony, Grusch said that he was informed of a “multi-decade UAP crash retrieval and reverse engineering program” during the course of his work examining the classified programs, to which he was denied access.

Grusch also shared that he had interviewed officials who had direct knowledge of the UAP with “nonhuman” origins and that the so-called “biologics” were recovered from some craft.
When he was asked if the U.S. government had information about extraterrestrial life, he said that the government is likely aware of “non-human” activity since the 1930s.
As such, The Pentagon, the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, has denied Grusch’s claim of a coverup.
According to their statement, the investigators have not found “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,” said Defense Department spokeswomen Sue Gough.
