From the Roswell incident to the Battle of Los Angeles, the United States has had a long and storied history with unidentified flying objects and the government’s default setting has always been to ‘deny, deny, deny!’ But as Bob Dylan put it so aptly, ‘The Times They Are A Changing’ as the recent confirmation by the Department of Defense that leaked photos and videos of UFOs were legitimate and taken by navy personnel.
And while government officials are usually tight lipped about such things due to the “stigma” attached to reporting unidentified flying objects (which the government now calls unidentified aerial phenomenon UAP), Senator Rubio was surprisingly candid in a recent CBS 60 Minutes interview. The reason Sen. Rubio is so open about a previously unspoken about topic is ahead of a government report on UFO sightings that is set to be released before the end of June.
As acting Senate Intelligence Committee chair in December, Rubio has asked for an unclassified copy of the report to be presented to Congress. “Anything that enters an airspace that’s not supposed to be there is a threat,” he told the program. “I want us to take it seriously and have a process to take it seriously,” Rubio said. “I want us to have a process to analyze the data every time it comes in. That there be a place where this is cataloged and constantly analyzed until we get some answers.”
And the senator isn’t the only voice coming from the halls of power as former Pentagon official turned whistleblower, Luis “Lue” Elizondo, has been publicly critical of the Pentagon’s response to what he, like Senator Rubio, describes as a serious national security risk. Elizondo had previously headed up the agency’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which began in 2007 and was budgeted $22 million over its five years of operation to study unexplained aerial phenomena.
Elizondo would resign in protest after heading the program from 2010 to 2017 because of what he describes as “very senior” officials blocking him from informing his superiors like Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis and the public as a whole. Elizondo not only decided to resign but with the help of former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge, would establish To the Stars… Academy of Arts & Sciences (often shorted to just To the Stars or TTSA).
However, before resigning from the AATIP, Elizondo managed to get several videos captured by the US military of bizarre aerial phenomenon performing extraordinary maneuvers declassified, videos that show UAPs that apparently have technology vastly exceeding any human invention. Elizondo believes now that the government has acknowledged the reality of Unexplained Aerial Phenomenon it going to be hard to suddenly backtrack.
There has been talk for many years about ‘full disclosure’, the US government acknowledging that there are things in our skies that not only defy logic but defy the laws of nature as we currently understand them. Could this finally be the moment when not only is the cat out of the bag but it might be followed by those little green men? Only time will tell but the report that is due at the end of June will no doubt offer more clues to what is going on above our heads.
