Highly decorated former combat officer David Charles Grusch, who served in Afghanistan and a veteran agent with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office, is scheduled to deliver testimony on Wednesday before a House panel that is currently conducting a probe into UFOs. Or are they UAPs now? You know, flying saucers and little green men.
According to The Daily Wire, “Grusch, 36, would know. He was the reconnaissance office’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force from 2019-2021. And then from late 2021 to July 2022, he was the NGA’s co-lead for UAP analysis and its representative to the task force. Last month, he gave Congress reams of classified information about covert U.S. government programs that he says are now in possession of an intact craft of ‘non-human origin.'”
Here’s a look at a few bits of what Grusch is planning to say in remarks he has prepared ahead of time:
My name is David Charles Grusch. I was an intelligence officer for 14 years, both in the US Air Force (USAF) at the rank of Major and most recently, from 2021-2023, at the National GeospatialIntelligence Agency at the GS-15 civilian level, which is the military equivalent of a full-bird Colonel. I was my agency’s co-lead in Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) and transmedium object analysis, as well as reporting to UAP Task Force (UAPTF) and eventually the AllDomain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO).
I became a Whistleblower, through a PPD-19 Urgent Concern filing with the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), following concerning reports from multiple esteemed and credentialed current and former military and Intelligence Community individuals that the US Government is operating with secrecy – above Congressional oversight – with regards to UAPs. My testimony is based on information I have been given by individuals with a longstanding track record of legitimacy and service to this country – many of whom also shared compelling evidence in the form of photography, official documentation, and classified oral testimony.
I have taken every step I can to corroborate this evidence over a period of 4 years and to do my due diligence on the individuals sharing it, and it is because of these steps that I believe strongly in the importance of bringing this information before you.
Grusch goes on to state that he is committed to truth and being transparent and that he is fully dedicated to upholding his oath to defend the Constitution and protect the people of the United States. He then stated that he wants Congress to hold the government to the same standard and to thoroughly conduct an investigation into the claims being made. Grusch said that he is speaking the facts as they were told to him.
In the USAF, in my National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) reservist capacity, I was a member of the UAPTF from 2019-2021. I served in the NRO Operations Center on the director’s briefing staff, which included the coordination of the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) and supporting contingency operations.
In 2019, the UAPTF director tasked me to identify all Special Access Programs & Controlled Access Programs (SAPs/CAPs) we needed to satisfy our congressionally mandated mission. At the time, due to my extensive executive-level intelligence support duties, I was cleared to literally all relevant compartments and in a position of extreme trust in both my military and civilian capacities.
“I was informed, in the course of my official duties, of a multi-decade UAP crash retrieval and reverse engineering program to which I was denied access to those additional read-on’s. I made the decision based on the data I collected, to report this information to my superiors and multiple Inspectors General, and in effect become a whistleblower,” Grusch continued in his prepared statement.
The combat veteran then revealed that he has been the victim of retaliation for his decision, however, he remains hopeful that his actions will result in a positive outcome of increased transparency. Grusch then released the statement he plans to close out the hearing with, which says:
It is with a heavy heart and a determined spirit that I stand, under oath, before you today, having made the decision based on the data I collected, and reported, to provide this information to the committee. I am driven in this duty by a conviction to expose what I viewed as a grave congressional oversight issue and a potential abuse of executive branch authorities.
This endeavor was not born out of malice or dissatisfaction, but from an unwavering commitment to truth and transparency, an endeavor rooted in our inherent duty to uphold the United States Constitution, protect the American People, and seek insights into this matter that have the potential to redefine our understanding of the world.
Grusch explains that while our nation is divided more so now than ever before in history, exploring the topic of UAPs resonates with people of all walks of life and transcends all boundaries that separate us. And he’s right. If it turns out there really are lifeforms out there that possess intelligence and have technology capable of visiting other worlds, they are an advanced race of beings and could potentially pose a grave threat to our kind.

And even if they are friendly, should their technology fall into the wrong hands, it would be totally disastrous for the free world. We cannot allow that to happen at any cost, thus, it is critical UAPs be seriously investigated and protocol for engaging with such beings and their technology established. More than that, the government needs to start being forthright with us about this issue.
“It is my hope that the revelations we unearth through investigations of the Non-Human Reverse Engineering Programs I have reported will act as an ontological (earth-shattering) shock, a catalyst for a global reassessment of our priorities. As we move forward on this path, we might be poised to enable extraordinary technological progress in a future where our civilization surpasses the current state-of-the-art in propulsion, material science, energy production and storage,” the UAP expert said. “The knowledge we stand to gain should spur us toward a more enlightened and sustainable future, one where collective curiosity is ignited, and global cooperation becomes the norm, rather than the exception.”
