IP - A former intelligence official has reportedly handed classified information to the US Congress revealing that the government possesses “intact and partially intact” alien vehicles.

Iran PressAmerica: David Grusch, 36, a former combat officer in Afghanistan, served with the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force from 2019 to 2021, New York Times reported.

The whistleblower told science and technology news site The Debrief that alien technology – from partial fragments to intact vehicles – had been recovered for decades by the government and defense contractors.

After analysis, the objects are said 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”, he said.

US intelligence official Jonathan Grey, of the National Air and Space Intelligence Centre (Nasic), told The Debrief that “exotic materials” exist.

“The non-human intelligence phenomenon is real. We are not alone,” he said.

“Retrievals of this kind are not limited to the United States. This is a global phenomenon, and yet a global solution continues to elude us.”

Grusch said information on these vehicles was being illegally withheld from Congress.

He said when he turned over classified information about the vehicles, he suffered retaliation from government officials. He left the government in April after a 14-year career in US intelligence.

Active and retired intelligence officials with knowledge of the deeply covert programs have independently provided similar, corroborating information, both on and off the record, the report said.

The task force was established to investigate UAPs – previously called “unidentified flying objects”.

“We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities,” Grusch said, referring to information he provided Congress and the current ICIG. “The material includes intact and partially intact vehicles.”

The report said the Air Force carried out a disinformation campaign for many decades to discredit reported sightings of unexplained objects. But Congress is now pressing for answers.
