A former intelligence official made explosive claims Wednesday that the U.S. government has recovered non-human biological material from UFO crash sites.
David Grusch, who served for 14 years as an intelligence officer in the Air Force and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, told House lawmakers that he had interviewed government officials who had direct knowledge of aircraft with “nonhuman” origins.
Grusch said that the biological material recovered from the crash sites was “unlike anything we have on Earth.” He did not provide any specific details about the material, but he said that it was “highly unusual” and “very different” from anything he had ever seen before.
The Pentagon has not commented on Grusch’s claims, but it has previously said that it is investigating a number of unexplained aerial phenomena.
Grusch’s testimony comes at a time of heightened interest in UFOs. In recent years, there have been a number of high-profile reports of UFO sightings, including by military pilots.
In 2021, the Pentagon released a report on UFOs that acknowledged that some of the objects observed by military pilots could not be identified. The report did not, however, conclude that the objects were of extraterrestrial origin.
Grusch’s claims are the most serious allegations yet that the U.S. government has recovered non-human biological material from UFO crash sites. If his claims are true, they would have profound implications for our understanding of extraterrestrial life.
Experts Weigh In on Grusch’s Claims
Experts in the field of UFOlogy have been divided in their reaction to Grusch’s claims. Some have dismissed his claims as outlandish, while others have said that they are credible.
“I think it’s important to take Grusch’s claims seriously,” said Chris Mellon, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence. “He has a long history of working in intelligence, and he has access to classified information. If he’s making these claims, it’s worth listening to him.”
However, other experts have been more skeptical. “I think Grusch is either mistaken or he’s deliberately trying to mislead people,” said Michael Shermer, a science writer and the publisher of Skeptic magazine. “There’s no credible evidence to support his claims.”
Only time will tell whether Grusch’s claims are true. However, his testimony has certainly reignited the debate about UFOs and the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
