CBC news: First Pentagon briefing on UFOs attended by Canada


The Canadian government has confirmed its participation in a unique international meeting on unidentified flying objects at US military headquarters.

The meeting at the Pentagon late last month comes amid a flurry of activity in Washington and dazzling news reports regarding so-called Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP).

It included a US-led briefing for visitors from countries of the Five Eyes Intelligence Sharing Alliancewhich includes Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Canada’s Department of National Defense told Breaking: in an email that Canada attended the meeting, led by a representative from the Royal Canadian Air Force.

“The details of the meeting remain secret,” DND said in an email. “It can be characterized as sharing information on the subject of UAP and no further details can be shared at this time.”

The meeting included a presentation by Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick – the veteran scientist in the U.S. National Defense Organization who directs the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), a new entity created in 2022 to direct UAP-related activities for the U.S. military.

Kirkpatrick made the Five Eyes meeting public last week at a public conference hosted by NASA.

“I just ran our first Five Eyes forum on this topic,” Kirkpatrick said.

He explained the purpose of meeting allies: to work more closely with friendly nations in pooling information on UAP sightings.

The creation of his office is part of a wave of activity following a 2017 report in The New York Times about bizarre sightings kept secret by the US military.

In the wake of that report, Kirkpatrick’s office was established, the U.S. government now releases an annual report report on UAP sightings and the Congress created a system for government whistleblowers to report sightings.

Now two of the journalists who wrote that 2017 watershed report have taken a quantum leap — and reported extraordinary new allegations.

This week they detailed stunning new claims from a decorated former combat officer who served as a U.S. Department of Defense representative on a UAP task force from 2019 to 2021.

Stunning new claims

David Grusch was quoted in their print reportand later broadcast interview, stating that the United States possesses aircraft of non-human origin.

And not just one plane, he says, but many.

He says the discoveries are numerous, ranging from wreckage to intact vehicles, and he says these items have been collected for decades — by the US government, by allies and by defense contractors.

He says this information is being illegally withheld from members of Congress and he has warned them, as well as the Inspector General of the US Intelligence Community.

Authors reporting on his allegations for the science site The Debrief cited other U.S. officials who vouched for Grusch’s credibility, including Jonathan Gray, an officer in the intelligence community with top-secret clearance.

“The non-human intelligence phenomenon is real. We’re not alone… This kind of query is not limited to the United States. This is a global phenomenon, and yet a global solution continues to elude us,” Gray says in the report.

This, to be clear, is not the official line of the US government.

There is no credible evidence to date of extraterrestrial activity, non-terrestrial technology or objects that defy the known laws of physics, Kirkpatrick said in recent testimony before the United States Senate.

In addition, the latest annual UAP report did not mention any evidence of alien technology.

It said that of the 366 sightings recorded, 163 were balloons or balloon-like entities, 26 were categorized as unmanned aerial vehicles and six were spacecraft debris.

However, it said 171 sightings remain unexplained.

The US military disputes Grusch’s suggestion that it has evidence of alien aircraft.

In an email to Breaking:, Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough said, “AARO has not discovered any verifiable information to substantiate claims that programs related to the possession or reverse engineering of extraterrestrial material existed in the past.” ​or currently exist.”

She said AARO is determined to follow the data and investigation wherever it leads.
