National Intelligence Officer Is the Latest UFO Lightening Rod

David Grusch, a former U.S. intelligence officer, is the whistleblower that recently made shocking statements about the U.S. government's knowledge and alleged coverup of UFO technology and UFO crash retrieval program. Since making his claims to Ross Coulthart of NewsNation in June 2023, he has become both a target for UFO skeptics and a champion for disclosure advocates.

Grusch has not yet publicly shared evidence to support his claims, due largely to his fears of prosecution for disclosing classified information, however, he did appear in front of Congress on July 26, 2023 and testified under oath about the subject. He was joined by David Fravor and Ryan Graves, both retired pilots for the U.S. military with first hand knowledge of UFO activity. These three witnesses testified for over two hours to the House Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs.

While few details were given during the public hearing, Grusch offered to share sources and more complete answers with House Members behind closed doors, assuming proper security clearances were in place. During the public portion of the hearing, Grusch made a number of incredible statements about claims of retaliation, misappropriation of government funds, and a UFO crash retrieval program.

Soon after Grusch's appearance in front of the House Subcommittee, The Intercept published an article detailing Grusch's past mental health struggles. The Intercept claims that this medical history was obtained properly by means of FOIA requests, but others see this as a tactic intended to intimidate a witness - something that has been alleged by previous UFO whistleblowers. Grusch has corroborated the information that was published, but says it should not detract from the message he has come forward to share.

Many have come to Grusch's defense, including Rep. Tim Burchett. "It doesn't matter. What matters is the fact that this man served his country and is suffering for it. And now, we're stigmatizing this further," Burchett said.

Regardless of where one stands on the credibility of Grusch, it appears that a reckoning is on the horizon. In the past, the burden of proof for claims made about UFOs has been on witnesses, but that has shifted. Today, the burden of proof is on the U.S. military and government to offer an explanation for the unusual military videos and reports that have come to light, and the witnesses that are talking about them. Until then, Grusch is just the latest target for those seeking to put the UFO matter to rest.

  • David Grush testified to Congress, under oath, that the U.S. federal government maintains a highly secretive UFO retrieval program and possesses multiple spacecraft of non-human origin, as well as corpses of deceased pilots.

  • Grusch testified that he has been retaliated against for his statements and alleged that others have been killed in order to conceal these programs from the public.
