The following may sound like the plot of an old episode of The X-Files, but it is – allegedly - all true.

On Wednesday, 26th July, the United States Congress held a public meeting during which three esteemed and respected former US military officials blew the whistle on the government’s knowledge of UFOs.

The three men testified before a House Oversight Subcommittee, credibly revealing that the United States military has an active programme in which it seeks to retrieve and reverse engineer UFO technology. Or UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) technology, as it’s officially known in the industry.

The frank disclosures couldn’t be any more ‘on the record’ and appear to indicate that, as so many science fiction films have suggested down the years, the powers that be in the American government know much more about extra-terrestrials than they let on.

The three men who were brave enough to be sworn in and make the controversial declaration were retired Navy Commander David Fravor, ex-National Reconnaissance Officer Representative of the Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Task Force at the US Department of Defense David Grusch and Ryan Graves, the executive director of Americans for Safe Aerospace.

At one point, the retired Major Grusch said that the US government has knowledge of ‘non-human activity’ going back to the 1930s. He told those on the panel that he is 'absolutely certain' that the US federal government has, in its possession, a range of UFOs. He then claimed to have interviewed more than 40 people in four years who had convinced him of that fact.

The Pentagon, for its part, has vehemently denied Grusch’s claims of any such knowledge or that there’s any form of cover-up. In a statement given in response to the hearing in Congress, US Department of Defense spokesperson Sue Gough claimed that there is ‘no 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.’

The most shocking revelations

Plenty was said at the congressional hearing that made the ears of everyone in the room prick up. Here are some of the most incredible things that were uncovered:

  • The US DoD recovered ‘non-human biologics’

Not only has the US government visited the scene of crashed UFOs and recovered some of the technology, but it has also done the same with what Grusch refers to as ‘non-human biologics’. What he means specifically by this isn’t clear as he was careful not to divulge too much on topics where the information was too ‘sensitive’.

‘I have to be very careful here... but what I personally witnessed, myself and my wife, was very disturbing.’

  • People have been hurt by UFOs

While he didn’t - or couldn’t - go into any real specifics behind his claim, David Grusch said that he knows ‘multiple colleagues’ who have been injured in some way or another by a UAP.

  • Programme funding is illegal

Because of the top-secret nature of the UAP programmes, any funding has to be gathered ‘creatively’. Basically, it must be stolen from other, more legal, projects via 'a misappropriation of funds’, as Grusch put it.

  • Whistleblowers are intimidated, harassed and ‘hurt’

During the hearing, Congressman Tim Burchett asked Grusch if he was aware of individuals who may have been harassed or harmed as a result of efforts to hide extra-terrestrial technology.

‘It was very brutal and very unfortunate, some of the tactics they used to hurt me both professionally and personally,’ he said.

  • It was implied that the US government may have killed people as part of the cover-up

Congressman Burchett asked Grusch at one point in the hearing, shockingly, if any witnesses had been murdered as part of the government's efforts to hide information about the program.

‘I have to be careful answering that question,’ was Grusch's cryptic reply.
