Former intelligence official affirms US possession of UAPs during House hearing
David Grusch says he knows ‘exact locations' of UAPs, 'those locations were provided to the Inspector General'

WASHINGTON (AA) - A former Air Force intelligence official said Wednesday that he "absolutely" believes the US government is in possession of UAPs, or unexplained anomalous phenomena.
The remarks by David Grusch came during a hearing on the implications of UFOs on national security held by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability's Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs.
Grusch said he "absolutely,” believes it, “based on interviewing over 40 witnesses over four years," when asked by Rep. Robert Garcia, the top Democrat on the committee.
He also said he knows “the exact locations” of the UAPs and "those locations were provided to the inspector general" and added that he "had the people with the first-hand knowledge provide a protected disclosure to the Inspector General."
Grusch served on the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. Last month, he claimed that the US discovered "intact and partially intact" alien vehicles.
When asked if he faced reprisals for his claims, Grusch said there were certain colleagues that he said, "were brutally administratively attacked.
"It actually makes me very upset as a leader to see that happen to other co-workers and actually superiors of mine in the last three years," he said.
Rep. Tim Burchett, a Republican representing the state of Tennessee, asked Grusch whether he had personal knowledge of people who have been harmed or injured for concealing extraterrestrial technology.
"I have to be careful asking that question. I directed people with that knowledge to the appropriate authorities," Grusch responded.
- System for reporting
Other witnesses include former Navy pilot Ryan Graves of Americans for Safe Airspace and David Fravor, a former Navy commander.
Graves pointed to a system for reporting UAP sightings during his remarks.
"Right now we need a system where pilots can report without fear of losing their jobs. There is a fear that the stigma associated with this topic is going to lead to professional repercussions either through management or perhaps through their yearly physical check," he said.
Graves also said commercial pilots who have reached out to him through American for Safe Airspace are doing so, "because they don't feel there's another way for them to report the safety issue."
Fravor said: "I think you need to develop something that allows you a central point to collect the data in order to investigate" these phenomena.
