Aliens are real and we've met them, government official swears under oath

Aliens are real and we've met them, government official swears under oath

Do you believe?

The Milky Way (not the chocolate bar), is said to have a radius of 52,850 light years and is home to an estimated 100 billion planets.

So it should be a reasonable assumption that Earth is not the only planet with life and an ecosystem, right? After all, out of all those 100 billion planets, surely it would be impossible for there not to be other civilizations beyond comprehension.

There’s been no concrete evidence that aliens exist or at least what we know of. Sure, we’ve heard of alien abduction testaments from the likes of Randy Marsh and we’ve probably seen debatable evidence courtesy of Netflix documentaries. Still, as far as we’re aware, there has been no recorded evidence of an actual alien, or has there?

As reported by, in the United States right now, a former military intelligence officer named David Grusch is giving accounts in front of a Congressional subcommittee to testify that the government has been covering up evidence for decades that proves extraterrestrials exist.

However, it’s worth keeping in mind that Grusch has not seen evidence first-hand that aliens exist, but rather information that he had heard from colleagues and experts, during his time working at the Pentagon. The ‘whistleblower’ claims that those that he has spoken to have seen either an alien being or an alien spacecraft.

During the committee hearing, Grusch was also joined by two former members of the US Navy, David Fravor and Ryan Graves. Former Navy pilot Fravor claimed to have seen an alien spacecraft move at high speeds over the Southern California coast in 2004, known as the ‘Tic Tac’ incident. Whereas Graves, also a former Navy pilot gave his account regarding sightings above the East Coast in 2014 and 2015.

What's more, Grusch says that the US government has been salvaging alien spacecraft to research and reverse-engineer to enhance its own military technology. “I was informed, in the course of my official duties, of a multi-decade UAP (Unexplained Anomalous Phenomenon) crash retrieval and reverse-engineering program,” he said.

Grusch also claimed that his accounts came from “individuals with a longstanding track record of legitimacy and service to this country,” and provided “compelling evidence” such as photos and official documents.” Furthermore, he also stated that the US government is in possession of deceased alien bodies from downed spacecraft.

In somewhat related news, it’s been reported that a long-awaited sequel to 2014’s sci-fi horror, Alien: Isolation is in development.

Oh and somebody call Mulder and Scully, please!
