Navy Admits To ‘Multiple’ UFO Sightings Over Top Secret Military Bases (#GotBitcoin)
UFOs have been spotted hovering over top-secret military bases and flying near aircraft, according to the US Navy. Navy Admits To ‘Multiple’ UFO Sightings Over Top Secret Military Bases (#GotBitcoin)
The US Navy is changing how pilots report UFOs after recent sightings.
The institution is now drafting new guidelines for pilots and other naval employees so it’s easier for them to report any mysterious objects they spot in the sky.
The decision to make these new guidelines for UFO sightings has been made in response to recent reports of unidentified flying objects.
In a statement given to US news outlet Politico, the US Navy said: “There have been a number of reports of unauthorised and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years.
“For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very seriously and investigates each and every report.”
“As part of this effort, the Navy is updating and formalising the process by which reports of any such suspected incursions can be made to the cognisant authorities. A new message to the fleet that will detail the steps for reporting is in draft.”
A few years ago, a leaked report from the Pentagon revealed that a supersonic UFO shaped like a Tic Tac sweet had stalked a US Aircraft carrier for days before vanishing into thin air.
Some of the pilots said that the aircraft could make itself invisible as it travelled next to them.
The craft was described by one of the pilots mentioned in the report as “solid white, smooth, with no edges… uniformly coloured with no nacelles, pylons or wings”, and looked like “an elongated egg or Tic Tac”.
The incident happened over a couple of days in November 2004 but the video footage of the flying object was not revealed to the public until December 2017.
Pilots who witnessed the incident reported that they picked up the presence of 8 to 10 objects in their radar equipment on November 10, 2004.
Sceptics think that the sighting could be explained by equipment malfunction or human error.
Retired Pentagon official Luis Elizondo once ran a secret Pentagon program for investigating UFOs until it was reportedly shut down in 2012.
He told Politico that government personnel were often encouraged not to report sightings, making this new admission from the US Navy even more groundbreaking.
Nick Pope, who investigated UFOs for the Ministry of Defence, told us: “This bold new initiative on the part of the US Navy is clearly aimed at de-stigmatising the UFO issue.
“I know from my own experience of having run the MoD’s UFO project that fear of being ridiculed or disbelieved, and worries about adverse career consequences means many pilots – military and civil alike – simply don’t report these things.”
“This new move gives official sanction for pilots, radar operators and other military witnesses to come forward and report what they see. I strongly support this policy change and hope we can do the same thing in the UK.”
UFO Whistleblower Makes Explosive Claims, But Wary Of Divulging Details
Former intelligence official David Grusch made claims about possible U.S. government cover-ups of contact with UFOs and non-human pilots in a House Oversight subcommittee hearing on Wednesday.
But Grusch could not offer any hard evidence to substantiate his claims — largely due to his fears of prosecution for sharing classified data in a public setting, he told Congress.
“As a former intelligence officer, I go to jail for revealing classified information,” he told the members.
Lawmakers on the national security subcommittee noted that evasion is not the same thing as Grusch admitting he doesn’t have proof.
“We should remind viewers and witnesses — and I think is really important — that we also cannot share classified information in public settings,” Ranking Member Robert Garcia (D-Calif.) said.
Members repeatedly complained that they had been denied access to a secure hearing room (a sensitive compartmented information facility, or SCIF) where they could hold a fully secure interview with Grusch.
“Every person watching this knows that we need to meet with Mr. Grusch in a secure compartmentalized facility so that we can get fulsome answers that do not put him in jeopardy,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) told the committee.
Gaetz’s GOP colleagues said after the hearing that they would demand to interview Grusch and the other witnesses in a SCIF to gather additional information.
Here are three specific areas where Grusch said he could share further classified information with Congress to bolster his claims.
Naming his sources
Grusch said that during his time as co-lead of the Pentagon’s Unexplained Anomalous Phenomenon (UAP) task force, fellow intelligence officials leaked to him the existence of the secret program focused on retrieving — and attempting to reverse engineer — non-human craft.
“Do you have direct knowledge — or have you spoken to people with direct knowledge of this imagery of crash sites,” Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.) asked Grusch.
“I can’t discuss that in an open session,” Grusch said.
But he promised to offer a list of potential witnesses — both cooperative and “hostile” — who could give the committee more information.
Claims of retaliation
While most of his intelligence agency colleagues have been supportive, Grusch told Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-N.Y.), “I do have knowledge of active and planned reprisal activity against myself and other colleagues,” in what he called “administrative terrorism.”
When Raskin pressed on where these reprisals had come from, Grusch said the source was “certain senior leadership at previous agencies I was associated with.”
“That’s all I’ll say publicly,” Grusch added, “but I can provide more details in a closed environment.”
Asked if anyone had been killed over potential leaks, Grusch told Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) that “I have to be careful asking that question, I directed people with that knowledge to the appropriate authorities.”
By contrast, former Navy pilot Commander David Fravor, sitting next to Grusch, said that he and other pilots who had witnessed UAP had been treated “very well.”
Misappropriation of Funds
Grusch alleged that aerospace and weapons manufacturers were siphoning money off of government contracts — and plowing it into unsanctioned research projects in advanced technology.
The Secretary of Defense does have the authority to deny congressional oversight of particularly sensitive “special access programs,” or SAPs. But the group of high-powered congressional leaders known as the Gang of Eight is at least supposed to be informed — which Grusch said didn’t happen in this case.
Asked how such a secret program gets funded, he said: “I will give generalities — I can get very specific in a closed session — but misappropriation of funds.”
“Do you think US corporations are overcharging for certain tech they’re selling to the US government and that additional money is going to programs?” Rep. Moskowitz asked.
“Correct, through something called IREN,” Grusch said, referring to the INFOSEC Research and Engineering Network, a joint research and development venture between several corporate weapons contractors.
Pressed for details, Grusch said he could reveal more in a closed session and offered Rep. Alexia Ocaio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) a list of corporations and sites to begin targeting.
“I’d be happy to give you that in a closed environment, I can tell you specifically,” Grusch responded.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 18, 2023
Contact: Haley Morris
Washington, D.C. — Americans For Safe Aerospace (ASA) today announced a public campaign to support commercial aircrew and military UAP witnesses who want to share their accounts. The campaign will respect witness confidentiality or support public disclosure at the discretion of the individual and their case. More than 30 commercial aircrew and military witnesses have already approached ASA to share their accounts, prompting the need for a formalized campaign and support. Credible UAP witness testimony is the driving force behind new landmark UAP disclosure legislation, The Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) Disclosure Act of 2023 just introduced last week.
“I have been talking to veterans and commercial pilots about daily UAP encounters, and they want answers about what is flying in our skies. Whether these UAP are foreign drones or something else, this data should be collected, evaluated and identified,” said ASA Co-Founder Ryan Graves.
“Right now, there is very little formalized support for UAP aircrew witnesses, and Americans for Safe Aerospace has the expertise to mobilize and fill that gap. From my own experience, I know firsthand the stigma around the UAP topic and the very real fear of professional consequences so I want to help others navigate the process of coming forward.”
Americans for Safe Aerospace is uniquely positioned to support commercial aircrew and military UAP witnesses. Ryan Graves was the first active duty military pilot to come forward to Congress about the UAP he and his squadron were witnessing off the Eastern Seaboard.
Members of ASA’s Aircrew Leadership Council including David Fravor and Alex Dietrich were the first former Navy pilots to meet with Congress about their UAP encounter. ASA Senior Advisor Chris Mellon has played a leading role in helping UAP witnesses come forward since 2017. Other ASA Senior Advisors such as Tim Gallaudet and Garry Nolan have played a key role with UAP witnesses.
Commercial aircrew and military UAP witnesses are encouraged to visit ASA’s website and follow the steps to confidentially contact ASA with an outline of their account. ASA will then meet with the witness for an interview and bring in an ASA advisor with relevant expertise for further evaluation and support.
Together, decisions are made regarding any next actions, which can include meeting with staff and Members of the U.S. Congress or AARO – only at the explicit permission and willingness of the UAP witness. ASA maintains the highest level of confidentiality and discretion through this process.
“Americans for Safe Aerospace is already actively working with several credible UAP witnesses who are interested in sharing their case with Congress and AARO. These cases include multiple witnesses to UAP incidents with contemporaneous documentation,” Graves continued.
“As stigma recedes, there will be many more UAP witnesses who want to come forward, and their accounts should be recorded and investigated as a matter of our national security, airspace safety and scientific inquiry.”
ASA is encouraged by how Congress is responding to credible and compelling UAP witness testimony. The Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) Disclosure Act of 2023, historic UAP transparency policy proposed by Senators Schumer, Rounds, Rubio, Gillibrand, Young and Heinrich, was driven by “the sheer number and variety [of UAP witness accounts].”
A key mechanism of The UAP Disclosure Act creates a 9-member civilian Review Board empowered to “hold hearings, administer oaths, and subpoena [UAP] witnesses and documents” in connection with declassifying or scheduling the declassification of UAP documents for distribution to the public.
Americans for Safe Aerospace (ASA) is the first military pilot led organization dedicated to UAP as an issue of national security and aerospace safety. ASA has more than 4,000 members and convenes military and commercial aircrew including David Fravor, Alex Dietrich, and Michael Greene and thought leaders on UAP including Christopher Mellon, Tim Gallaudet, Bryan Bender, Susan McCue, Garry Nolan of Stanford, David Radzanowski (former CFO and Chief of Staff at NASA), and Avi Loeb of Harvard. ASA was founded by former U.S. Navy fighter pilot Ryan Graves, who was the first active duty pilot to come forward to Congress about UAP.
UFOs Are A Common Sight, Former Military Official Tells Congress
Lawmakers push for more transparency on the phenomena.
Former military and intelligence officials testified to a congressional panel Wednesday that they have seen UFOs and said they could pose risks to national security.
The former officials called for the U.S. government to share what it knows about the phenomena.
Two of the witnesses, former U.S. Navy fighter pilots, said they have seen “unidentified anomalous phenomena,” or UAP, a phrase the federal government uses to refer to what are commonly known as UFOs.
One of the pilots testified that encounters with UAP are common among military aircrews and commercial pilots.
A former intelligence official also testified at the hearing that he believes the U.S. government has hidden from the public that it possesses aircraft of a nonhuman origin.
Wednesday’s hearing, by a House Oversight subcommittee, is Congress’s latest push for transparency around UAP, which have long fascinated the public.
The federal government has begun disclosing some information about UAP. It has set up task forces to investigate the phenomena and plans to release more findings.
“The lack of transparency regarding UAPs has fueled wild speculation and debate for decades, eroding public trust in the very institutions that are meant to serve and protect them,” said Rep. Glenn Grothman, (R., Wis.). “There lies a pressing demand for government transparency and accountability that cannot be overlooked, and that’s been a problem that’s been around for 50 years.”
Witness David Grusch, a former member of a U.S. Air Force panel on UAP, has said the federal government has withheld information about the recoveries of aircraft of nonhuman origin from Congress and the public.
Grusch told lawmakers Wednesday that during the course of his work with a UAP task force, he was informed of a UAP crash-retrieval and reverse-engineering program that had existed for decades.
When he tried to learn more about that program, he was denied access, he said. He reported what he learned to his superiors and to multiple inspectors general, he said.
Grusch said he believes the U.S. government is in possession of UAP based on interviewing 40 witnesses over four years with direct knowledge of the program.
He testified that the U.S. government has recovered nonhuman biologic material from crashed UAP, citing people with direct knowledge of the program.
Grusch declined to elaborate on many of his answers, saying it would pertain to classified information that he was barred from discussing in a public hearing.
The Pentagon’s UAP task force, the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, hasn’t been able to substantiate claims that any federal programs have possessed or reverse-engineered extraterrestrial materials, a spokesperson for the Defense Department said.
“The Department is fully committed to openness and accountability to the American people, which it must balance with its obligation to protect sensitive information, sources, and methods,” the spokesperson said.
The All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office has also said it has found no credible evidence of extraterrestrial activity.
Rep. Tim Burchett (R., Tenn.), and Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R., Fla.), said after the meeting they would seek a closed-door hearing with Grusch.
The committee plans to hold further public hearings on UAP, Burchett said.
“We’re going to start talking to people, we’re going to start naming names,” Burchett said.
The other two witnesses are former U.S. Navy fighter pilots Ryan Graves, executive director of the UAP-focused advocacy group Americans for Safe Aerospace, and retired Cmdr. David Fravor.
“These sightings are not rare or isolated,” said Graves, who served in the Navy for over a decade. “Military aircrews and commercial pilots, trained observers whose lives depend on accurate identification, are frequently witnessing these phenomena.”
Graves said his aircrew saw UAP during a training exercise off the coast of Virginia Beach, Va. Two jets encountered “a dark gray or black cube inside of a clear sphere” and the object came within 50 feet of the lead aircraft, he said. It was estimated to be 5 to 15 feet in diameter, he said.
The mission was terminated, Graves said. The squadron submitted a safety report, but there was no official acknowledgment of the incident, he said.
The encounters with UAP became so common that the aircrew would discuss the risk of the objects during preflight briefings, Graves said.
Fravor’s testimony included his account of witnessing UAP in 2004 off the coast of San Diego. Fravor had been directed to inspect an object, and was told by the mission’s air controller that these objects had been observed for over two weeks coming down from over 80,000 feet and rapidly descending down to 20,000 feet, hanging there for hours and then going straight back up.
Fravor said he saw a small white object that looked like a Tic Tac and had no rotors or wings. It was “moving very abruptly over the white water, like a ping-pong ball,” he said.
Fravor flew his aircraft closer to get a better view of the UAP, and “it rapidly accelerated and disappeared,” he said.
The air controller informed him that the object was now about 60 miles away, traveling that distance in less than a minute, Fravor said.
Fravor said he believed UAP posed a potential threat to national security, especially if a foreign adversary captures one and is able to duplicate the technology.
“The technology we faced was far superior to anything that we had,” said Fravor, referring to the UAP he witnessed in 2004.
All three witnesses said the UAP may be probing for weakness in the U.S. military system.
Provisions in the Senate’s version of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act would require federal agencies to hand over records related to UAP to a panel with the power to declassify them. The provisions have bipartisan support.
Federal officials have begun releasing some information about UAP. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a report in 2021 that reviewed dozens of reports of mysterious flying objects between 2004 and 2021.
The report found several examples of objects that lacked visible forms of propulsion or that appeared to use technology beyond the known capabilities of the U.S. or its adversaries.
U.S. defense officials released videos of such objects last year during the first Congressional hearing on the subject in more than half a century. One video, taken from the cockpit of an aircraft, showed a spherical object flying to the right of the aircraft. Military officials were unable to explain what the object was.
Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, said in public testimony in May his office is studying about 800 cases of UAP reported from 1996 to 2023. Only a small percentage of those cases are anomalies that can’t be explained, he said.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has established a separate panel tasked with reviewing nonclassified data on UAP. The team plans to issue a report on its findings this summer.
