Last week, David Grusch, a veteran of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), came forward with claims that the United States has retrieved and studied UFOs of non-human origin and recovered alien bodies.
It has gotten so wild that the U.S. House of Representatives announced it is planning to hold a hearing to investigate Grusch’s claims.
The latest claim to come from the Air Force veteran David Grusch is that the “Vatican was involved” in the first-ever mission of the United States’ alleged secret UFO retrieval program.
“It’s long been known that the regime of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini documented numerous UAP [Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, or UFOs]. An internal memo from the Italian Secret Services includes crude drawings of the UAPs,” he told NewsNation.
“1933 was the first recovery in Europe, in Magenta, Italy. They recovered a partially intact vehicle, and the Italian government moved it to a secure airbase in Italy until around 1944-1945.
“The Pope back-channeled that and told the Americans what the Italians had and we ended up scooping it.”
Grusch says that in his opinion, the United States government has been conducting a “sophisticated disinformation campaign” for decades regarding aliens and UFOs.
Part of that campaign, according to Grusch, involves the infamous 1947 Roswell incident.
“You might want to trust some of these witnesses,” he said about those who came forward back then, adding that he has read the 1994 Air Force report that supposedly debunked the Roswell incident.
“That analysis they did was a total hack job,” he said. “I mean, even anybody with analytical skills … if you read it, you can deduce that they’re completing multiple situations crash test dummies and movable dunes. They (the Air Force) is just saying that the townsfolk who personally witnessed it were totally imagining things. They concocted that whole report just to disinform.”
This week, multiple sources close to the situation came forward, according to author Michael Shellenberger, to say Grusch’s core claims are accurate.
Jim Shell, a former Chief Scientist of the Space Innovation and Development Center at Air Force Space Command, and recently retired Army Colonel and former Army liaison for the United States’ UAP Task Force, Karl E. Nell, also backed up Grusch’s assertions.
