Some interesting news has come out this past week concerning the search and possible existence of aliens. The strange news emerged last week when the Pentagon admitted that it’s had secret programs dedicated to researching the UFO phenomenon for years.
It’s long been suspected that the government knows more about the issue of aliens and UFOs than it lets on, but only bits and pieces about possible programs or “black budgets” have been exposed over the decades, which has only fueled conspiracy theories about it all. But recently, there’s been more open talk about the extraterrestrial from government officials, and not just in the US.
As reported at the New York Post, the former head of the Pentagon’s secret, $22 million UFO-hunting program says aliens may have visited Earth.
“My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone,” Luis Elizondo, former leader of the so-called Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, told CNN on Monday night, noting he does not speak for the federal government.
The program ran from 2008 to 2012, when the Department of Defense investigated eerie reports from military air personnel and commercial pilots about strange objects they’d seen in the sky.
Elizondo argued Monday that the aerial stunts the UFOs performed, such as hovering without any sign of propulsion, are beyond the reach of human technology and were “seemingly defying the laws of aerodynamics.”
“These aircraft — we’ll call them aircraft — are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of,” he said.
Even if human vessels could pull off such moves, he added, our bodies wouldn’t be able to handle such incredible G-forces anyway.
“We have identified some very interesting, anomalous type of aircraft — we’ll call them aircraft: things that don’t have any obvious flight services, any obvious forms of propulsion, and maneuvering in ways that include extreme maneuverability beyond, I would submit, the healthy G-forces of a human or anything biological,” Elizondo said.
While the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program was ultimately shuttered, many of its former employees still look to the stars for clues in their spare time.
After leaving his government post, Elizondo joined the research organization To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, a group founded by the former singer and guitarist from the rock band Blink-182, Tom DeLonge. The group is dedicated to uncovering the truth behind UFOs and aliens.
It’s not at all surprising that the Pentagon would have such a program on the books, considering the hundreds of billions it has at its disposal. However, the secrecy and refusal to admit it conducts such research are a little strange. While these revelations are certainly interesting, it only makes one wonder what other types of programs are buried deep at the Pentagon, as this is likely just the tip of the iceberg.
