Whistleblower tells Congress the US is concealing ‘multi-decade’ program that captures UFOs
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. is concealing a longstanding program that retrieves and reverse engineers unidentified flying objects, a former Air Force intelligence officer testified Wednesday to Congress. The Pentagon has denied his claims.
Retired Maj. David Grusch’s highly anticipated testimony before a House Oversight subcommittee was Congress’ latest foray into the world of UAPs — or “unidentified aerial phenomena,” which is the official term the U.S. government uses instead of UFOs. While the study of mysterious aircraft or objects often evokes talk of aliens and “little green men,” Democrats and Republicans in recent years have pushed for more research as a national security matter due to concerns that sightings observed by pilots may be tied to U.S. adversaries.
Report does not confirm, or rule out, UFOs in unexplained aerial events
Washington Post–A soon-to-be-released government report on unexplained aerial phenomena finds no proof of extraterrestrial activity, but cannot provide a definitive explanation for scores of incidents in which strange objects have been spotted in the sky, officials said on Thursday.
That the report, whose conclusions were first described by the New York Times, does not rule out extraterrestrial activity is likely to further stoke what has become a highly unusual national discussion about the possibility that unknown life-forms are visiting Earth, as senators, former CIA directors and former president Barack Obama express new openness to UFOs.

In the Washington Post, “Man, 29, arrested after he is found naked and screaming in flower bed in Crystal City“.
The incident began shortly after midnight Sunday near the intersection of Crystal Drive and 18th Street South when police received a call.
When they arrived, they found a man — later identified as Hector Anaya Segura of Mexico — standing in a flower bed, waving his arms in the air and “screaming incoherently,” according to Dustin Sternbeck, a spokesman with the Arlington County police department.
Segura’s clothes were scattered in the roadway.
Hector obviously arrived in the US by flying saucer, giving new meaning to illegal alien.
Police said a naked Segura then ran to a police cruiser and began slamming his hands on the hood.
A police officer used a Taser on him, causing him to fall down. Sternbeck said Segura did not comply with officers’ commands and tried to stand up. A Taser was again used on him before officers handcuffed him.
Segura was taken to an area hospital, police said. A field test kit turned positive for use of drugs, and police said they found an e-cigarette on Segura which they believe he was using to smoke bath salts.
Segura was charged with disorderly conduct and possession of bath salts. He told authorities he was attending a meeting in the area — the 2015 International Drug Policy Reform Conference.
Well that sounds believable enough. But no reason not to put his butt back on the flying saucer to return from whence he came.
