Two months ago, All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) Director Sean Kirkpatrick testified before members of the Senate Committee on Armed Services that he has never seen any proof of alien spacecraft. AARO is Pentagon's latest program for investigating the existence of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). (Related: Experts clarify the role of the Pentagon's newest UFO task force.)
"I should also state clearly for the record that in our research, AARO has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology, or objects that defy the known laws of physics," added Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick acknowledged that this conclusion might be "unsatisfying" to people who think they have seen indisputable proof of physics-defying craft or objects.
But more recently, former United States Air Force intelligence official David Grusch refuted the Pentagon's claim, informing multiple media outlets that the American government is in possession of several alien spacecraft.
"I thought it was totally nuts. I thought at first [that] I was being deceived. I have plenty of current and former senior intelligence officers who came to me — many of whom I knew almost my whole career — [and] who confided in me," said Grusch, speaking about the multiple other intelligence officers who informed him about the government's secret possessions.
Several sources have also come forward to back Grusch's claims. The sources are either high-ranking intelligence officials, former intelligence officials or individuals involved in the U.S. government's UFO efforts for three or more decades. Two of the sources testified last year before both AARO and Congress.
Some high-ranking officials also implied in the past that America has alien spacecraft in its possession. Before his passing, the late Sen. Harry Reid called for greater disclosure from the Pentagon over what he said were materials retrieved from potential UAP crash sites.
Just recently, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Christopher Mellon said at least four witnesses told him that they knew of a secret U.S. government program involving the analysis and exploitation of materials recovered from off-world spacecraft.
"Some have supplied information to the intelligence community's inspector general, others directly to the staff of the congressional oversight committees," Mellon added.
Grusch's sources revealed that they have either seen for themselves or been presented with "credible" and "verifiable" evidence that the government and military contractors have at least 12, possibly more, alien spacecraft in their possession. AARO knows about at least some of the alien spacecraft, and the agency has simply refused to reveal their existence.
One of the sources said the reason AARO "has not discovered any verifiable information" is because it does not have the authority to verify such information.
"In his testimony, Kirkpatrick said that AARO is operating under Title 10 authority, but most intelligence agencies operate under a higher, Title 50 authority. The intelligence community with Title 50 feels free to stonewall AARO with Title 10, because it views Title 10 authority as inferior to Title 50," the source explained.
Grusch last year filed a whistleblower complaint before the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), saying that the military and intelligence communities were withholding information from AARO and Congress.
The ICIG concluded in July last year that Grusch's whistleblower complaint was "credible and urgent."
"I know of at least 12 to 15 craft," said one source who shared information with AARO and Congress. "Every five years, we get one or two recovered for one reason or another, from either a landing or that we catch, or they just crash."
