Head of US Research: "UFOs Are a Potential Threat"

It is certain that UFOs exist and that they use technology that we as humans do not know. So says Luis Elizondo, the former head of the US research program that ran the Pentagon for years. Last week, images were released of a UFO spotted by fighter pilots in 2014. Since then everyone has their own opinion about the phenomenon.

Elizondo, who left two months ago as head of the Advanced Threat Identification Program (AATIP), the research program run by the Pentagon for many years, is warning countries to be aware of the potential threat from UFOs.

Last week, it became known for the first time that pilots of an American fighter plane had observed an object in the sky that was flying through the air at extremely high speed, with no visible propulsion.

Elizondo now explained to The Telegraph newspaper more about the secret that had been kept hidden all this time. “If we were in court, I would say we have reached the point of ‘every reasonable doubt’. I hate using the word ufo, but it is what we are facing right now,” he said . “By the way, I don’t think it could be any clearer: they are objects that cannot be human beings. It is not us. And it is no one else. So we have to ask ourselves where they come from, who they are. . “

Linked to each other
Elizondo also mentions in the interview “geographic hotspots” – around nuclear installations and power plants – that suddenly popped up in the investigation. “There are also similarities between different observations. Each observation reminded us of a different observation. They were all linked to each other, partly because of their high speed, their maneuverability. But also their shape: there were no external features that told us that. they were ‘normal’ flying objects – they had no wings, for example. They made no sound either. It can all be corroborated by radar data, gun camera images from planes and multiple witnesses.

“We have never felt attacked by the UFOs, but still. Because of the way those things move through the air, we have to take into account that something could happen. We cannot reach it with our human mind. and that’s dangerous. “

Fighter pilot Fravor, who conducted the sighting with a colleague, told The New York Times that the craft was about 12 meters long, had “no wings, rotor or exhaust plumes,” and was “large enough to touch the sea when it reached 50 meters. above the water ”. “It was a lot faster than our F-18”, they said.

The former head of the US research program now sees Fravor as a “national hero” because, as a soldier, he dares to speak out about something that has always been taboo. Elizondo said goodbye to the research program in October because he did not agree to the sightings being kept so overly secret.
