Story of Dramatic New “UFO Whistleblower” Begins to Crumble


So, unless you have been living under a rock these past few days, you have seen the breathless, uncritical news coverage about the latest “UFO whistleblower” making extraordinary claims. His is a former Intel guy named David Grusch, who has recently been turning up all over the credulous media, making claims of ‘secret government crashed UFO retrieval programs.’ How to know which reporters are credulous and foolish? That’s easy: if they ran with this story on the basis of no evidence at all, that’s them. And Grusch admits all this is only hearsay – he says he hasn’t seen any crashed saucers, or even any photos of them. Or of the alien bodies that he says were found inside……

It began with an article in The Debrief by Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal, “INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS SAY U.S. HAS RETRIEVED CRAFT OF NON-HUMAN ORIGIN.”   Where have we seen those names before? Yes, the authors of the now-discredited 2017 New York Times story that launched the UFO mania about Tom DeLonge, Lu Elizondo, etc. (Kean is now also a major promoter of belief in Spiritualism and ghosts, but that is the subject of another posting.)

The problem for Kean is that her ‘respected source’ can’t keep his mouth shut. “Government Whistleblower Claims U.S. Has Recovered Alien Bodies, Is Covering It Up.” 

This has caused Leslie Kean to back away from her earlier, breathless endorsement
of Grusch’s tales. John Greenewald, Jr. of The Black Vault writes,

Kean states that the “UFO whistleblower”‘s claim about “dead pilots” and bodies from the “non-human craft” was never discussed with her, she doesn’t want to talk about it, nor would she have published it.

How could you not have heard about that during the vetting process, and why would you not publish something that could change the human race if you felt the source of your story was credible and his claims were true?

In other words, Kean is saying, “My source only lies half the time.” 😅

And the more interviews Grusch gives, the more wild stuff comes up. In an interview with the French newspaper le Parisien, Grush said,

In 1933, a bell-like craft, around ten meters in size, was recovered in Magenta, northern Italy. It was kept by Mussolini’s government until 1944 when it was recovered by agents of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS, a former US intelligence agency). Ironically, it predates anything the public has heard about for decades, such as Roswell, etc. I was authorized to talk about it by the Department of Defense’s Office of Prepublication and Security Review.

Well, if Hitler could have his Nazi flying saucers, why can’t Mussolini have his, too?

UFO grifter Dr. Steven Greer wrote,

Dr. Greer met with this whistleblower in March 2022 in Culpepper, VA and has been providing him with information about facilities and operations.

So Greer claims that he has been providing information to Grusch, and not the other way around! “In fact, Dr. Greer mentored this key whistleblower David Charles Grusch.” To which Grusch replied,

I have not been mentored by anyone, and my public disclosure has been done independently under my own free will. I emphatically request that Steven Greer cease using my name to promote his personal agenda”.

But it is beginning to appear that Grusch’s entire tale might be just be recycling the same old stories we’ve been hearing for years. Citing comments made elsewhere,  Area503 notes on Twitter that

Grusch’s insider information comes from Hal Puthoff’s employee at Earth-Tech International: Eric Davis??

No wonder
 found his testimony to lack credibility.

This is getting downright silly now.

As more ‘connecting links’ between the old cover-up tales and the new begin to be noted, Jack Brewer adds,

Looking like Kean’s “multiple insiders” are Elizondo, Puthoff, Davis… because of effing course they would be. If so, what a complete waste of time, of which these people should be ashamed of themselves.

In other words, these are the same, familiar old claims, from people who have been involved with Bigelow, TTSA, etc. The collapse of the current extreme Disclosure mania will surely rank as one of the worst black eyes in the history of UFOOlogy. Persons seeking to hasten the general acceptance of UFO belief by hastily embracing welcome (but dubious) claims will have damaged that acceptance almost beyond repair, once the dust settles from this fiasco.

UFO newbies apparently have no idea that this “Disclosure tease” has been going on for more than seventy years, and always comes up empty. Every few years (at least), some new set of rumors begin to swirl, usually based on some dramatic claim, that ‘government secrecy about UFOs will soon be ending!’. But of course, it never does. You can’t “stop” something that never started.
