David Grusch

David Grusch, a seasoned United States Air Force (USAF) officer and former intelligence official, has caused a stir in the American intelligence community with his claims regarding the existence of a clandestine UFO recovery program. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Grusch has a commendable service record, having been a decorated combat officer during the War in Afghanistan and serving at both the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). He represented the NRO to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force from 2019 to 2021 and later co-lead UAP analysis at the NGA from late 2021 to July 2022.

In June 2023, Grusch’s extraordinary claims came to public attention when he stated that the U.S. federal government secretly possesses “non-human” spacecraft and “dead pilots”. He stated that his claims were based on the information conveyed to him by undisclosed officials. These revelations, according to Grusch, stem from his four years of interviews with around 40 witnesses.

In 2022, Grusch had escalated his concerns through official channels, filing a whistleblower complaint with the U.S. Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG). His intention was to share classified information with the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. This wasn’t his first attempt to disclose classified information; he had previously filed a complaint in 2021, alleging retaliation by his superiors over his revelations.

Adding an alarming dimension to his assertions, Grusch alleges that American citizens have lost their lives as part of an extensive cover-up orchestrated by the government. His accusations were met with official denials from both NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). In response to Grusch’s claims, they stated that no evidence of extraterrestrial life has been found and that there is no credible information on possession or reverse engineering of any extraterrestrial materials.

On July 26, 2023, under the aegis of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, Grusch was called to testify before a congressional hearing. During this session, he reaffirmed his allegations under oath. Although unable to publicly elaborate on certain aspects of his claims, he offered to provide further details in a secure setting, specifically a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF).

Grusch’s role in drafting the National Defense Authorization Act of 2023, which includes provisions for UFO reporting, whistleblower protections, and exemptions to non-disclosure orders, was instrumental in bringing these issues to the fore. The context for these disclosures was a growing congressional interest in UFO sightings and queries regarding four objects that the Air Force had reportedly shot down in February 2023.

In an interview conducted by Australian investigative journalist and author Ross Coulthart, aired by NewsNation in June 2023, Grusch elaborated on his allegations. On June 5, 2023, independent journalists Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal published a detailed account of Grusch’s claims on The Debrief, an online platform specializing in frontier science.

To further substantiate Grusch’s claims, Kean interviewed Karl Nell, a retired Army colonel who served on the UFO task force, and a current U.S. intelligence official at the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) using the pseudonym “Jonathan Grey”. Both Nell and Grey supported Grusch’s assertions, with Nell even terming him “beyond reproach”.

Grusch’s allegations extend beyond the secretive UFO program, claiming that the U.S. government maintains possession of non-human spacecraft and dead pilots. Furthermore, he suspects “substantive evidence of white-collar crime” concealing UFO programs. He made attempts to convey his findings to Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), tasked with investigating UAPs, but claims that his concerns were not followed up.

In an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien on June 7, Grusch expounded on his theories, suggesting the possibility of extra-dimensional origin for UFOs, the existence of massive “football-field” sized crafts, and the nefarious “malevolent activity” associated with UFOs.

“David Grusch’s Revelations on UAPs and Extraordinary Energy Potential”, was a participant in a secretive government program, discusses his findings on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs). He reveals that the U.S. has in its possession a UAP capable of manipulating space and time, internally much larger than its external dimensions, and capable of generating over a terawatt of energy. Grusch shared these details at a private event in New York, attended by professionals across various sectors, highlighting the technological marvels and potential implications of UAPs. He also voiced concerns about possible full disclosure of UAP information by international adversaries.

“David Grusch at the SOL Foundation Symposium”, discusses the need for greater transparency in government handling of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). Speaking at a symposium hosted by Nolan Laboratory and Stanford School of Medicine, Grusch advocated for a multidisciplinary approach to UAP research. The event focused on the scientific, societal, and regulatory challenges of UAP studies, aiming to legitimize this field academically and foster open dialogue among experts from various sectors.

David Grusch’s life journey from a decorated combat officer to a controversial whistleblower highlights a profound tension within the United States intelligence and defense communities regarding Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). His assertions, based on extensive interviews and his own experiences within the National Reconnaissance Office and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, challenge official narratives. Grusch’s revelations suggest a hidden depth to the U.S. government’s engagement with UAPs, including the possession of non-human spacecraft and other extraordinary claims of advanced technology and energy potential. Despite facing significant opposition and official denials, his steadfast commitment to transparency has fueled ongoing debates and legislative changes aimed at enhancing whistleblower protections and the scrutiny of UAP-related information. As this saga unfolds, it continues to blur the lines between science, government secrecy, and the public’s quest for knowledge about the phenomena that defy our understanding.
