The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released their Congressionally mandated report on UAPs
Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, Director of AARO, was the sole witness. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand led the hearing. The purpose of the hearing was to discuss the recently established AARO Office and the work the AARO has done in the last year since its establishment. Dr. Kirkpatrick was at the hearing to testify as to his experience leading the AARO and how the top issues they are facing is lack of funding and understanding people’s unwellness to report the sightings as well as further stigmatization of UAPs.
David Grusch, who co-led the UAP portfolio for the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and was on the UAP Task Force, came forward as a whistleblower. He discussed the investigations and information he witnessed in an interview with NewsNation and claimed the U.S. government has a covert program to recovery debris from crashed non-human origin spacecraft.
