From 2019 through 2021, David Charles Grusch, a 36-year-old decorated former combat officer in Afghanistan, represented the National Reconnaissance Office on the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. He also worked for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency as co-lead of the task force’s analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) from late 2021 to July 2022. This task force has since been renamed the All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office.
The Debrief first reported on Monday that Grusch claimed he had submitted a whistleblower complaint to Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) based on classified information that, in his opinion, shows that the U.S. government, its allies, and defence contractors have been recovering partial fragments through and up to intact vehicles for decades up to the present.
According to analysis, the recovered objects are “of exotic origin (non-human intelligence, whether extraterrestrial or of unknown origin) based on the vehicle morphologies and material science testing and the possession of unique atomic arrangements and radiological signatures,” according to Grusch.
Regarding the data he provided to Congress and the ICIG, Grusch stated, “We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities. “The material includes both fully and partially intact vehicles.”
Additionally, Grusch agreed to an interview with NewsNation where he claimed that numerous senior and former intelligence officers, many of whom he had known for almost his entire career, had begun confiding in him and had given him documents and other “proof” that they had been a part of a covert craft retrieval programme that the UAP Task Force “was not read into.”
According to Grusch, “These are retrieving non-human exotic origin vehicles that have either landed or crashed.” You may also name them spacecraft.
Naturally, when you find something that has either crashed or landed. As unbelievable as it may sound, dead pilots do occasionally come into contact with you.
We’re not alone ourselves, he declared. “The data clearly demonstrate that we are not alone.”
According to Grusch, “legacy UFO programmes” have long been hidden under “multiple agencies nesting UAP activities in conventional secret access programmes without adequate reporting to various oversight authorities,” according to The Debrief.
He claimed that he warned Congress about a long-running “publicly unknown Cold War for recovered and exploited physical material — a competition with near-peer adversaries over the years to identify UAP crashes/landings and retrieve the material for exploitation/reverse engineering to garner asymmetric national defence advantages.”
Grusch told News Nation that there was a “sophisticated disinformation campaign” aimed at the American people that was “extremely unethical and immoral,” acknowledging the “great personal risk and obvious professional risk” in doing so.
Beginning in 2022, according to Grusch, he started sending Congress hundreds of pages worth of detailed information about the materials-recovery programme that had been transcribed from hours of recorded, secret information.
Several current participants in the recovery programme have since spoken to the Inspector General’s office, corroborating information in Grusch’s complaint, even though specific information, such as the locations of recoveries and programme names, remains classified and no physical materials have been provided to Congress.
According to Karl Nell, a retired Army Colonel who collaborated with Grusch on the UAP Task Force, “His assertion concerning the existence of a terrestrial arms race occurring sub-rosa over the past eighty years focused on reverse engineering technologies of unknown origin is fundamentally correct, as is the undeniable realisation that at least some of these technologies of unknown origin derive from non-human intelligence.”
Grusch informed the Pentagon of the information he planned to share with The Debrief in accordance with policy, and the Pentagon approved those planned on-the-record statements for public release in April, just days before Grusch departed the government.
