Luis Elizondo, the former head of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program at the Pentagon, said in a recent CNN interview, “We may not be alone.” On Saturday, the New York Times published an article detailing a secret program that investigated phenomena brought to the Department of Defense by service members.
Elizondo, a former military intelligence official, ran the secret UFO unit. He described some of the objects that were studied: “Things that don’t have any obvious flight surfaces, any obvious forms of propulsion, and moving in ways that include extreme maneuverability beyond, I would submit, the healthy g-forces of any human or anything biological.”
Video of some of the flying objects captured by F/A-18 was also published. Elizondo explained that the program studied the objects through a variety of means and came up with a strange conclusion. “Through the observations, scientific methodologies that were applied to this phenomena, that these aircraft, we’ll call them aircraft, are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the U.S. inventory, nor in any foreign inventory.”
When pressed for his personal belief, he said, “There is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.”
