Extraterrestrials exist and several nations know about it. They're also patiently waiting for humanity to "reach a stage where we will understand... what space and spaceships are," says Haim Eshed, 30-year Israeli space security chief.
"The Unidentified Flying Objects have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet," said the respected professor and retired general in a recent interview with Israel's Yediot Aharonot newspaper.
So why haven't we heard anything until now?
Naturally, the "Galactic Federation" exclusively communicates with the U.S. and Israel, like a contrite early 90s sci-fi flick.
"There’s an agreement between the U.S. government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here. They, too, are researching and trying to understand the whole fabric of the universe, and they want us as helpers," Eshed said.
Oh and doing so with Earth astronauts sworn to secrecy in a subterranean base on Mars. Because the rest of humanity isn't ready to know the truth, Eshed believes.
Eshed also feels global reception to new ideas has changed and this lead to his confidence in speaking out, evidently breaking this iron-clad agreement with the Galactic Federation.
"If I had come up with what I'm saying today five years ago, I would have been hospitalized. Today, they're already talking differently. I have nothing to lose. I've received my degrees and awards, I am respected in universities abroad."
But one guy who is in the know is soon-to-be-former President Trump.
In classic Trump fashion, he nearly disclosed the alien's existence. But not before being chastised by the Galactic Federation for almost inciting "mass hysteria", insists Eshed.
Sue Gough, a spokesperson for the Pentagon, declined to comment.
But a spokesperson for NASA did say "although we have yet to find signs of extraterrestrial life, NASA is exploring the solar system and beyond to help us answer fundamental questions, including whether we are alone in the universe," which isn't saying much.
And as for "humanity needs to "evolve and reach a stage where we will... understand what space and spaceships are..." We're pretty at peace with what space and spaceships are. Aren't we?
I mean, we have explored near-Earth space for a handful of decades and space is a staple in pop culture. But the technologically advanced Galactic Federation seems to disagree.
Folks on Twitter were all too happy to create the "official account of the extraterrestrial political body.

Naturally, some folks who align their extracurricular beliefs with Eshed are all-in. Nick Pope, an English government hound dog for UFOs called Eshed's disclosure 'remarkable,"
“Either this is some sort of practical joke or publicity stunt to help sell his book, perhaps with something having been lost in translation, or someone in the know is breaking ranks,” he said.
Pope followed with an admission that the UFO and conspiracy theory community were excited yet reserved. Uncharacteristically, the conspiracy theory community has questions about whether Eshed is speaking from firsthand knowledge and experience or secondhand info. This might mark the first time they've ever held out for real evidence.
"There are still some missing pieces of the puzzle here," said Pope.
