In a startling claim, a former Pentagon official has said there are very compelling pieces of evidence that aliens exist. Luis Elizondo, who led a recently revealed government programme to research potential unidentified flying objects (UFO), told CNN, “My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.” The secret US program – ‘Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Programme’ – was launched to trace the evidence of any visits made by aliens to the earth and potential threat to security due to that. The programme was started largely at the behest of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, The New York Times and Politico reported last week.
Elizondo also claimed that he resigned from the Department of Defence in October in protest over alleged “excessive secrecy surrounding the programme and internal opposition” to it after funding for the effort ended in 2012. While Elizondo clarified he could not speak on behalf of the government, he strongly implied there was evidence which makes him believe that alien aircraft visited Earth. He said aircrafts were displaying characteristics that were neither available in the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory. Revealing the details of the programme, the ex-Pentagon official said it was run to “ascertain and determine if that information is a potential threat to national security”. He added that the probe teams “found a lot”.
He claimed that “anomalous” aircraft that were “seemingly defying the laws of aerodynamics” were found to be existent under the probe.Things which don’t have any obvious flight services or forms of propulsion were found in the probe. In another interesting statement, the government UFO study included statements from a pilot duo who claimed of coming across a UFO-like object. One of the commanders claimed of witnessing an object that looked like a “40-foot-long Tic Tac”. He said that it was manoeuvering rapidly and changing its direction during a flight in 2004.
