Former U.S. Navy pilots and an intelligence officer testified before Congress that they have witnessed extraordinary UFOs, or Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAPs) as they are now officially called.
David Fravor, Ryan Graves, and David Grusch all said they have personally seen UFOs that defy explanation. Fravor described seeing a small white Tic Tac-shaped object that jammed the radar of his aircraft and did not emit any infrared radiation like normal propulsion systems.
Graves said that UAP sightings were a common occurrence among his aircrew, and that one pilot even described seeing “a dark gray cube inside of a clear sphere motionless against the wind.”
Grusch, who worked in the U.S. Air Force and at the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, said that the U.S. government has been secretly reverse engineering recovered UFOs for decades. He claimed that officials have samples of seemingly non-human craft, as well as the corpses of the alien pilots flying them after they crashed into our planet.
Members of Congress on the committee agreed that the American public had a right to know about UAPs. House Representative Jared Moskowitz said he recognized the United States must always protect its national security to maintain technological superiority, but that couldn’t be used as a shield to keep people in the dark from basic truths.
The latest UAP hearing starkly contrasted previous sessions with officials from the Pentagon’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) and NASA. Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the AARO, for example, downplayed the suggestion of alien technology coming to Earth, and said only a small percentage of cases were truly anomalous.
