Former Government Official Says UFOs Are Real... and a Threat

Posted by Tim Kaelin on

A former top Pentagon official has gone on record saying that UFOs not only exist but pose a clear and present danger to national security.

In a recent interview with Live Science, Luis Elizondo said, “I think we’re at the point now where we’re beyond reasonable doubt that these things exist.” Elizondo is the former head of the U.S. Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which was tasked with investigating UFOs.

The program started in 2007, but was not made public until 2017. “We know they’re there — we have some of the greatest technology in the world that has confirmed their existence,” he added.

Prior to the formation of the AATIP, investigating UFO sighting was mainly under the purview of the Air Force’s, now famous “Project Bluebook.”  Project Bluebook ran from the 1950s (enacted soon after the Roswell incident) and was active well into the 1980s.

The official story of the vast majority of Bluebook cases were said to be “explainable” incidents either involving human technology such as weather balloons or unusual weather patterns such as heavy cloud coverage. However, to this day, some 700 cases still remained unsolved.

Elizondo’s comments come just a few months after the U.S. Navy released several tapes that showed videos of what the Department of Defense has now admitted are “unidentified” objects, or UFOs – though they have not said they are definitively of any kind of extraterrestrial origin.

However, as we have reported previously in these pages, one of the pilots who captured footage of the object known as the “Tic-Tac” said that “it wasn’t behaving by the normal laws of physics.”

Given those words, and after closely examining for himself the leaked, and later confirmed Navy footage, Elizondo is now calling for world leaders to not only take the possibility of UFOs seriously but also have a plan in case the unexplained objects do not have good intentions.

“There’s something in our sky and we don’t know what it is, we don’t know where it’s from. Is that a problem? From a national security perspective, yes, it’s a problem,” stated Elizondo, who had also previously served as a military intelligence officer.

“We need to understand what these are, in order to make a determination if they’re a threat,” he added.

What do you think? Are UFOs real, and a credible threat to humanity? Does the government know this, and have they been hiding the truth for decades? Reply in the comments below.

  • I believe there are living beings from other planets. They may not be in our image but needless to say they are real. My only hope is that are not here to destroy our life but to enhance our way of life even to bringing peace to our planet.

  • They are real but I do not consider them a threat to our world; just observing the advancements.

  • In the 1950’s my brother started screaming late at night. My mom and dad (and me, too) ran to this bedroom. He pointed outside to 3 huge “things” hovering over the trees in our pasture! There was NO sound. They were as large as a large airplane but no sound. They stayed there for a couple of minutes and then one by one went straight up and took off with no sound. They looked like huge huge cigars with no sound! We drove into our nearest town and told the Chief of Police. His response was:’’If you tell anyone you told me this I will say you are lying!" I seldom tell anyone!

  • I have been under the impression for some time now that these UFO sightings are the real deal. The
    ability of our aircraft to keep up with
    their aircraft is impossible leaving
    me to believe they are more advanced than we are which may not be a good position for us to be in. They have not attemped to start a war with us which is a good thing.
