Former Intelligence Officer Claims US Possesses 'Non-Human' Craft

AllSides Summary

A former intelligence officer involved in the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force is claiming covert programs possess “intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin” and have withheld the findings from Congress.

Whistleblower Details: Originally reported in The Debrief (Not Rated), David Charles Grusch, the whistleblower, worked previously on investigations into unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. The Debrief article quotes other former intelligence officers giving credit to the claims and speaking positively to Grusch’s character. A provision in the FY2023 National Defense Authorization Act allows individuals with relevant UAP information to inform Congress without retaliation. 

Key Quotes: “We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities,” Grusch is quoted stating, “The material includes intact and partially intact vehicles.” Speaking with NewsNation (Center bias), Grusch alleged efforts are being made to conceal the existence of these findings, stating, “There is a sophisticated disinformation campaign targeting the U.S. populace which is extremely unethical and immoral.” Grusch goes on to state, “We’re definitely not alone. The data points, quite empirically, that we’re not alone.” The Debrief’s article also quotes ​​Karl Nell, a retired Army Colonel who worked with Grusch on the UAP Task Force, claiming a “terrestrial arms race” has taken place over the past eighty years. 

How The Media Covered It: Outlets across the spectrum are reporting on the claims mildly. Coverage is notably absent from select high-profile outlets, such as the New York Times (Lean Left bias), CNN (Lean Left bias), and more.
