Luis Elizondo quietly ran a small government program for almost seven years. It’s purpose? Collecting and analyzing information about UFOs. Two months ago, just before he left his job, Elizonda arranged to secure the release of three videos taken from cockpit cameras. The subject of these videos were “anomalous aerial vehicles” which he says is the recognized governmental term for UFOs…
I know. It sounds like an episode of “The X-Files”, but the story has now been reported by reputable news sources all over the US including The Washington Post.
Pentagon officials have confirmed that the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program does indeed exist, and that it was set up in 2007 to track aerospace threats both foreign and domestic…and alien.
It’s estimated that spending for the program totaled only around $22 million, a drop in the bucket compared to other defense spending and barely a blip on the radar for most. The project was reportedly abandoned, but it is believed that reports were still coming in to the office as recently as last month.
The project has never gone on official record declaring that extraterrestrial life does exist, but The Washington Post quoted a letter from Elizondo in which he said:
“Despite overwhelming evidence at both the classified and unclassified levels, certain individuals in the [Defense] Department remain staunchly opposed to further research on what could be a tactical threat to our pilots, sailors and soldiers, and perhaps even an existential threat to our national security.”
Elizondo, who has moved on to other outside programs, says that his search continues and that he is searching for an outlet where this search can be more fully funded.
Take a look at the video below and listen in as pilots discuss the anomalous oblong object and its strange movements. It certainly seems to be something we’ve never seen before. Could this be definitive proof? We can’t say, but it is definitely something to think about.
