The truth is out there and we might just not be alone after all. The search for extra-terrestrial life has been one of the largest preoccupations of mankind since we first looked to the stars and posed the question, “Are we all that there is?” While we likely won’t ever have concrete proof of alien life, at least to the degree of satisfaction that most people want, there my be a little more meat on the bones of the discussion. Luis Elizondo used to work at the Pentagon in a program designed to investigate UFO sightings. Elizondo opened up in an interview with CNN about his work through the program, revealing some industry information that UFO and science fanatics may find interesting.
Luis Elizondo understands very clearly why people are fascinated with looking for explanations behind the rash of UFO sightings that have seemingly always plagued mankind. In fact, it once was Elizondo’s job to investigate these sightings. Elizondo said in his interview with CNN, “My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.” Strong words from a professional who once was in a position to actually know the answers.
Elizondo had worked for the Pentagon Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (PAATIP). Ostensibly, this program was designed to keep eyes on the sky for potential alien spacecraft. However, that is not all Elizondo was charged with researching. UFOs are just unidentified flying objects which doesn’t mean that these objects are extraterrestrial in origin. THere very well could be military grade or privately made crafts that fly without permits for nefarious deeds and that means Elizondo’s position was actually one of national security, as well.
Still, Elizondo made it very clear that his personal focus was on the stars and what could come from beyond. Elizondo said during his interview, “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.” Elizondo went on to point out that his personal opinion leaned toward extra-terrestrials. However, as we stated above, there is no ruling out the powers of foreign and hostile nations. Elizondo said, “I wanted to purposely steer away from that speculation because I wanted to focus on truly the raw science. What were we seeing, and did it pose a threat to national security?”
Elizondo resigned from his post on October 4th, leaving a note behind urging for more attention to be paid toward these unidentified aircraft.
