Aliens Have Visited Earth, Former Pentagon UFO Expert Says


For years, we humans have looked to the skies and wondered if and when we’ll get a visit from a distant alien civilisation, but what if they’ve already been and gone?

Former Pentagon Official, Luis Elizondo, believes this could well be the case. Elizondo – who was once in charge of the US Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program – has shared his thoughts on various reports which suggest E.T. may be a lot closer than originally thought.

The program – which ran from 2007 to 2012 – is something straight out of Men In Black – highly secretive in nature – the purpose was to study UFOs – warding off any potential attacks from outer space.

Elizondo quit the program partly in protest at what he believed to be ‘excessive secrecy’ by the government and partly because of internal opposition.

Elizondo claims some reports – including accounts from two US Navy Super Hornet fighter pilots – could mean aliens have already paid us a (literally) flying visit.

According to Elizondo, reports showed how mysterious ‘anomalous’ spacecrafts have been detected, which were ‘seemingly defying the laws of aerodynamics.’

Speaking with CNN, Elizondo described these intriguing UFOs in the following terms:

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.

My personal belief is that there’s very compelling evidence we may not be alone.

These aircraft – we’ll call them aircraft – are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory we’re aware of.

One report which has gained media interest is an eyewitness account by Commanders David Fravor and Jim Slaight.

Commander Fravor revealed to CNN how he’d seen a very strange object shaped like a ’40-foot-long Tic Tac’ while out flying back in 2004.

He claimed this object accelerated at an extremely high speed, suggesting a superior level of technical advancement – he’s adamant this was not an airplane.

The US Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program – which received $22 million (£16.5 million) worth of funding – has really divided people. Some view the endeavour as a waste of government money while others feel it’s yielded important results.

Ryan Alexander from Taxpayers for Common Sense told CNN how spending taxpayers’ money on looking for UFOs is ‘crazy’:

Pilots are always going to see things they can’t identify and we should probably look into them, but to identify them as UFOs, to target UFOs to research, that is not the priority we have as a national security matter right now.

However, other prominent figures have come forward to defend the work of the program.

Senator Harry Reid – who helped found the program – tweeted the following statement:

If anyone says they have the answers, they’re fooling themselves.

We don’t know the answers but we have plenty of evidence to support asking the questions. This is about science and national security. If America doesn’t take the lead in answering these questions, others will.

Will we ever know the truth?
