U.S. Retrieved Non-Earth Technology Claims Former Intelligence Chief

Former intelligence chief Christopher Mellon has made a bold claim, stating that he believes the US has recovered technology that "did not originate on this earth." Mellon, who served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Clinton and Bush administrations, made the statement ahead of a scheduled Congress hearing about UFOs. He also mentioned that America "may have in our possession off-world technology recovered from someone else's space program."

Mellon, who was the secret source for the New York Times' publication of three UFO videos in 2017, said he expects some new information to be revealed at the upcoming House Oversight Committee hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena. He expressed the hope that the American people would come to better understand why so many in Congress take the idea of UFOs seriously.

While Mellon claims that officials in the Department of Defense and former intelligence officials have told him that the US has recovered technology not of this Earth, government officials have disputed this. Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick of the DOD's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) stated that there is "no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity" or "off-world technology."

Mellon suggested that AARO may not be the best agency to investigate the issue of recovered technology, comparing it to asking the Reagan administration to investigate the Iran-Contra affair. He believes that Congress should drive the investigation itself.

The upcoming hearing will feature three military witnesses, including Air Force and intelligence agency veteran David Grusch, who made claims of an illegal UFO crash retrieval program. The other two witnesses are retired US Navy veteran fighter pilots Commander David Fravor and Lieutenant Ryan Graves, who witnessed and recorded UFO sightings.

In April 2020, the Pentagon officially released three videos taken by US Navy pilots that reportedly show "unexplained aerial phenomena." These videos had been previously acknowledged as real by the Navy and were captured during training flights in 2004 and 2015.

Overall, Mellon's claim about recovered technology from another world has been met with skepticism from government officials. The upcoming congressional hearing may shed more light on the issue and provide further insight into the existence of UFOs and the possibility of extraterrestrial technology.
