David Charles Grusch, 36, previously worked for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).
He was also the NRO’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force and worked as the NGA’s representative to the task force until July 2022.
Grusch has given classified information to Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General. The information is said to be about covert programs that he claims retrieved the non-human vehicles.
A number of other intelligence officials, some retired and some active, corroborated his claims, according to The Debrief.
Grusch has also filed a complaint alleging illegal retaliation against him after he disclosed the covert information.
“We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities,” he said. “The material includes intact and partially intact vehicles.”
Grusch – an Intelligence Officer for more than 14 years – claimed government agencies and defence contractors have been recovering both fragments of vehicles and intact craft for a number of decades.
He said they had been deemed to be “of exotic origin (non-human intelligence, whether extraterrestrial or unknown origin) based on the vehicle morphologies and material science testing and the possession of unique atomic arrangements and radiological signatures”.
Some insiders have now come forward for the first time, sharing knowledge of the alleged craft recovery programs.
Jonathan Grey, who works for the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC), told The Debrief: “The non-human intelligence phenomenon is real. We are not alone.
“This is a global phenomenon, and yet a global solution continues to elude us.”
Karl Nell, a retired Army Colonel who worked with Grusch on the UAP Task Force, said his assertions were “fundamentally correct”.
Grusch gave hundreds of pages worth of classified information to Congress regarding the recovery programs, although lawmakers have not been given any physical materials relating to non-human craft.
