Aliens crash landed on Earth – and Uncle Sam is covering it up, this guy tells Congress
Men in Black snatched Little Green Men's spacecraft, allegedly
Poll The US government has recovered alien spacecraft and bodies from crash landings on Earth, and is keeping the whole thing covered up, Congress was told on Wednesday.
Ryan Graves, a former F-18 pilot who served in the US Navy for over a decade, retired US Navy commander David Fravor, and David Grusch, an intelligence officer who worked in the US Air Force and at the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, all swore they personally witnessed or have firsthand knowledge of extraordinary UFOs, or Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAPs) as they are now officially called.
At a hearing held by the US House Committee on Oversight and Accountability on Wednesday, the trio warned these UAPs presented a national security threat, and that the government is concealing important knowledge from lawmakers and the public.

Grusch, who attempted to blow the whistle last month after analyzing UAPs, insisted the US government has been secretly reverse engineering recovered UFOs for decades. Not only do officials have samples of seemingly non-human craft, but also the corpses of the alien pilots flying them after they crashed into our planet, he earlier claimed.
At today's hearing, he reiterated that viewpoint, concluding from conversations with dozens of sources that Uncle Sam was aware of "non-human" visitors to our world and had recovered alien "biologics" as well as hardware. He also said some people had been injured while examining the UAPs, and that he has experienced professional and personal retaliation for coming forward.
Grusch declined to answer some sensitive questions from lawmakers probing what information the US government is hiding and where it could be found, but said he would share what he could with Congress behind closed doors. So far no proof has been made public to back up the most extraordinary of the day's claims.
Meanwhile, the other two panelists described their experiences observing UFOs up close.
Ryan Graves said these odd sightings are actually fairly common and have been reported by many commercial pilots and military personnel.
"In 2014, I was near Virginia Beach as part of VFA-11, a Navy Fighter/Attack Squadron made up of F/A-18F Super Hornets," he testified.
"Upon an upgrade to our radar system, we began to detect unknown objects in our airspace. Initially dismissed as software glitches, we soon corroborated these radar tracks with infrared sensors, confirming their physical presence.
"Over time, UAP sightings became an open secret among our aircrew. They were a common occurrence, seen by most of my colleagues on radar and occasionally up close. The sightings were so frequent that they became part of daily briefs."
The strangest incident was from one pilot who described seeing "a dark gray cube inside of a clear sphere motionless against the wind."
Although the squadron submitted a report, the sighting and activity wasn't officially acknowledged. Graves said there weren't any proper channels to pursue these kinds of things. David Fravor recounted a similar story. In his case, however, he was training for combat in Iraq and flying over the sea in 2004 when he and his colleagues spotted "a small white Tic Tac-shaped object" with no visible rotors or wings.
The object jammed the radar of the aircraft and did not emit any infrared radiation like normal propulsion systems. "What is shocking is that the incident was never investigated, none of my crew were ever questioned, tapes were never taken, and after a couple of days, it turned into a great story to tell friends," he said.

Members of Congress on the committee agreed that the American public had a right to know about UAPs – whether they are US, foreign, or even alien technologies. House Representative Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) 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.

Experts on a separate NASA-led taskforce said it was difficult to study UAPs scientifically since the data collected from sightings is often of low quality. But Graves, Fravor, and Grusch said what they saw and know about UAPs do not seem to match any known human capabilities.
"I would like to say that the Tic Tac Object that we engaged in Nov 2004 was far superior to anything that we had at the time, have today, or are looking to develop in the next ten-plus years," Fravor said.
"If we in fact have programs that possess this technology, it needs to have oversight from those people that the citizens of this great country elected to office to represent what is best for the United States and in the best interest of its citizens."
Grusch went even further, alluding to the impact and potential dangers of a possible alien intelligence on Earth. "A democratic process must be adhered to when evaluating the data and it is our collective responsibility to ensure that public involvement is encouraged and respected. Indeed, the future of our civilization and our comprehension of humanity's place on Earth and in the cosmos depends on the success of this very process," he said. ®
