Tom was right! A groundbreaking hearing on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena, commonly known as UFOs, took place on Jul 26th. During the session, a former military intelligence officer verified that the United States possesses “nonhuman biologics” recovered from an alleged aircraft crash. Notably, musician Tom DeLonge from Blink-182 was referenced during the hearing and responded to the revelations.
The hearing, titled “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena: Implications on National Security, Public Safety, and Government Transparency,” was conducted by the House Oversight Committee’s national security subcommittee. According to CBS News, David Grusch, a U.S. Air Force officer and former intelligence official, testified that executive branch agencies have concealed information about UAP for an extended period. In typical Tom fashion, he jokingly professed he was right to all of the naysayers.

In his testimony, Grusch disclosed details of his work investigating UAP for the Pentagon, revealing the existence of “a multi-decade UAP crash retrieval and reverse-engineering program.” He also questioned officials about an aircraft that contained “non-human biologics” retrieved from the crash site. “Biologics came from some of these recoveries, yeah,” Grusch confirmed when asked about the recovered “pilots.” He added, “Non-human, and that was the assessment of people with direct knowledge on the program I talked to that are currently still on the program.”
Additional witnesses shared their encounters with UAP during the hearing. Former Navy pilot Ryan Graves emphasized the importance of releasing sensor and video data he had witnessed, stating that such transparency could transform the national conversation about UAP. He urged addressing the security and safety concerns associated with these unidentified objects, highlighting the need for public awareness.
Interestingly, former commanding officer of the U.S. Navy, David Favor, credited Tom DeLonge’s To the Stars Academy during his testimony. Favor acknowledged the organization’s role in working with industry experts and USG officials to publish articles in The New York Times back in December 2017, which helped destigmatize the UFO topic and paved the way for the declassified hearing.
Following the news, DeLonge took to Twitter (now X) to share his reaction, posting an emoji wearing sunglasses with a screenshot that reads, “Tom was right. Aliens f**king exist.”
DeLonge has been a vocal advocate for the existence of extraterrestrial life and founded To the Stars, Inc. in 2015, later becoming To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences. The research group captured UFO footage, which was first published by The New York Times and officially recognized and published by the U.S. Navy in 2020. We know what Tom will be up to during his short time off after finishing the Blink 182 reunion tour in the USA before heading overseas for another leg of sold out shows!
