A former U.S. intelligence official claimed the U.S. government has been collecting alien space crafts and alien remains for decades as part of a secret UFO retrieval program. 

Air Force veteran David Charles Grush filed a whistleblower complaint to Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), claiming that he has proof that the U.S. military is keeping partial fragments and intact extraterrestrial vehicles. 

“These are retrieving non-human origin technical vehicles, call it spacecraft if you will, non-human exotic origin vehicles that have either landed or crashed,” Grusch said Monday.

"We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities," Grusch said. "The material includes intact and partially intact vehicles."

The technology has been recovered through a UFO retrieval program that has been hidden within “multiple agencies” that do not have “appropriate reporting to various oversight authorities.”

Grush suggested that the program has collected more than just extraterrestrial vehicles, pointing to the existence of life in outerspace.

"Well, naturally, when you recover something that’s either landed or crashed. Sometimes you encounter dead pilots and believe it or not, as fantastical as that sounds, it’s true," he added.  

"We’re definitely not alone," he said. "The data points, quite empirically that we’re not alone.”

Grush, 36, is a decorated combat officer who served in Afghanistan, in the National Reconnaissance Office as the representative to Congress’ Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force, and at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. 

Grush did not present any concrete evidence to Congress about his claims. However, he said that several intelligence officials had confided in him about the existence and details of the UFO program. 

“I thought it was totally nuts and I thought at first I was being deceived, it was a ruse,” Grusch said. 

A Department of Defense spokesperson, however, denied Grusch’s claims. She said that the All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office—previously known as the UAP—“has not discovered any verifiable information to substantiate claims that any programs regarding the possession or reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial materials have existed in the past or exist currently.”
