This is technology we’re still trying to learn about, and it could give us an advantage in any military conflict. So that’s a good reason to not disclose the nature of the technology. We don’t want to release and disclose all of the technology we have recovered. However, I think it’s about time that we do disclose we are in contact with non-human intelligence. That’s what needs to be put out there in the public.

[…] as a transparency measure, for the government to obtain any recovered UAP material or biological remains, that may have been provided to private entities in the past, and thereby hidden from Congress and the American people. We are lacking oversight opportunities and we are not fulfilling our responsibilities.

[…] the United States was in possession of a craft of unknown origin and had successfully gained access to its interior. […] This craft had a streamlined configuration suitable for aerodynamic flight but no intakes, exhaust, wings, or control surfaces. In fact, it appeared not to have an engine, fuel tanks, or fuel.

There is a lot of unidentified aerial phenomena out there. That’s true. And they’ve got pilot reports, there’s various other sensors out there, and some of it is difficult to explain… some [UAP are] really kind of weird and unexplainable.

For decades, many Americans have been fascinated by objects mysterious and unexplained and it’s long past time they get some answers. The American public has a right to learn about technologies of unknown origins, non-human intelligence, and unexplainable phenomena. We are not only working to declassify what the government has previously learned about these phenomena but to create a pipeline for future research to be made public. I am honored to carry on the legacy of my mentor and dear friend, Harry Reid and fight for the transparency that the public has long demanded surround these unexplained phenomena.

His [Grusch] assertion concerning the existence of a terrestrial arms race occurring sub-rosa over the past eighty years focused on reverse engineering technologies of unknown origin is fundamentally correct, as is the indisputable realization that at least some of these technologies of unknown origin derive from non-human intelligence.

The creation of a whistleblowers program specifically, that allows people from within – and I’m going to say this – who have been working on the reverse-engineering programs, reverse engineering of objects, so that they can come in and break their oaths, but specifically just to talk to congress and give that information in classified settings. The most recent one that happened was just last weekend and it created quite a hornets nest in Washington.

On a clear, sunny day in April 2014, two F/A-18s took off for an air combat training mission off the coast of Virginia. The jets, part of my Navy fighter squadron, climbed to an altitude of 12,000 and steered towards Warning Area W-72, an exclusive block of airspace ten miles east of Virginia Beach. All traffic into the training area goes through a single GPS point at a set altitude — almost like a doorway into a massive room where military jets can operate without running into other aircraft. Just at the moment the two jets crossed the threshold, one of the pilots saw a dark gray cube inside of a clear sphere — motionless against the wind, fixed directly at the entry point. The jets, only 100 feet apart, zipped past the object on either side. The pilots had come so dangerously close to something they couldn’t identify that they terminated the training mission immediately and returned to base.

Advanced objects demonstrating advanced technology are routinely flying over our restricted or sensitive airspace posing a risk to both flight safety & national security.

What are UAP, and why are we hearing more about them? I passed legislation requiring more reporting and analysis of unidentified sightings. Now we have much more data about balloons, drones, and other aerial phenomena so we can better protect our skies. This congressionally-mandated report released last month highlights why it’s so important to reduce stigma for reporting unidentified sightings, and why AARO, the office I helped create, is protecting our safety by rigorously investigating those reports.

In my opinion, I’ve seen enough evidence inside the anomalous bucket to consider that there is another entity, a consciousness, there is something there that is other.

The American public can reasonably expect to get some answers to questions that have been burning in the minds of millions of Americans for many years. If nothing else, this [legislation] should either clear up something that’s been a cloud hanging over the Air Force and Department of Defense for decades or it might lead in another direction, which could be truly incredible. There’s a lot at stake.
