UFO Whistleblower Criticizes Chris Christie's Response In GOP Debate: 'Americans Deserve Answers...Not Jokes'

Former Navy pilot and founder of Americans for Safe Aerospace, Ryan Graves, criticized Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie for dismissing questions on UFOs, Fox News reported.

Graves was unhappy with Christie’s response at the Republican primary debate on Wednesday. Christie, former New Jersey Governor, laughed off a question about his potential handling of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) if elected president.

Christie joked about being asked about UFOs just because he’s from New Jersey and then shifted the conversation toward the importance of telling the truth in the White House. He added that threats to children’s education were more pressing than UFOs.

In response, Graves released a statement questioning Christie’s flippant reaction to a national security issue.

“When is laughter ever an acceptable response to a national security question?” he asked in his statement.

He invited Christie and other presidential candidates to meet with Navy pilots who have had experiences with advanced UAPs.

“Americans deserve answers and transparency, not jokes about aliens that perpetuate stigma and suppress reporting,” he added.

Ironically, other major political figures like Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have publicly addressed the UFO issue in recent months. Both senators agree on the need for increased transparency and research into UAPs.
