In a notable congressional hearing on UFOs, three military veterans provided testimony, highlighting the U.S. government’s alleged long-standing secret program aimed at reverse-engineering recovered alien crafts. A key witness, a former Air Force intelligence officer, disclosed the U.S.’s acquisition of non-human biological remains from crash sites, stirring interest and concern alike.

The hearing primarily focused on enhancing the reporting mechanisms for Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), emphasizing the need to destigmatize such reports among aviators and ensure proper oversight of investigative government programs. The term UAP is increasingly used to denote both aerial and aquatic unexplained sightings, expanding the scope of what is traditionally categorized under UFOs.

Retired Major David Grusch, transitioning from his role in the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force to a whistleblower, shared his knowledge of the exact locations of UAPs within U.S. custody, despite facing restricted access to certain government UFO programs. The discussion was timely, given the rising public and political demand for transparency regarding unexplained aircraft encounters, which, despite numerous reports, often have mundane explanations such as weather balloons, drones, or even birds.

The Pentagon, through spokesperson Susan Gough, denied any existence of programs related to the possession or reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial materials, a statement that contrasts starkly with Grusch’s claims of retrieved non-human biological matter and the secrecy surrounding such programs.

Grusch’s testimony, backed by interviews with over 40 witnesses during his tenure with the UAP task force, suggested a deliberate effort to keep evidence of UFO encounters from Congress, offering to share more details in a classified setting. Despite not witnessing alien technology firsthand, Grusch’s assertions are based on credible sources and evidence including photographs, official documents, and classified testimonies.

The hearing also featured firsthand UAP encounter accounts from former Navy fighter pilot Ryan Graves and retired Cmdr. David Fravor. Graves described an unusual sighting off the Virginia Beach coast, advocating for a supportive environment for aviators reporting UAPs, citing advanced maneuvers beyond current technological understanding. Fravor recounted a 2004 incident with a “Tic Tac”-shaped object, emphasizing the technological superiority of the encountered UAP.

The public’s interest in the hearing was high, with many viewing it as a potentially historic moment. This congressional effort underscores the growing demand for clarity and transparency regarding UAPs, viewed both as a national security concern and a scientific curiosity, urging a shift towards open and stigma-free reporting and investigation of these mysterious sightings.
