On the Trail of a Secret Pentagon U.F.O. Program
By RALPH BLUMENTHAL
DEC. 18, 2017

Our readers are plenty interested in unidentified flying objects. We know that from the huge response to our front-page Sunday article (published online just after noon on Saturday) revealing a secret Pentagon program to investigate U.F.O.s. The piece, by the Pentagon correspondent Helene Cooper, the author Leslie Kean and myself — a contributor to The Times after a 45-year staff career — has dominated the most emailed and most viewed lists since.

So how does a story on U.F.O.s get into The New York Times? Not easily, and only after a great deal of vetting, I assure you.

The journey began two and a half months ago with a tip to Leslie, who has long reported on U.F.O.s and published a 2010 New York Times best seller, “UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record.” At a confidential meeting Oct. 4 in a Pentagon City hotel with several present and former intelligence officials and a defense contractor, she met Luis Elizondo, the director of a Pentagon program she had never heard of: the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.

She learned it was a secret effort, funded at the initiative of the then Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, starting in 2007, to investigate aerial threats including what the military preferred to call “unidentified aerial phenomena” or just “objects.” This was big news because the United States military had announced as far back as 1969 that U.F.O.s were not worth studying. Leslie also learned that Mr. Elizondo had just resigned to protest what he characterized as excessive secrecy and internal opposition — the reason for the meeting.

She spent hours with him reviewing unclassified documents, for the $22 million program operated largely “in the white” (that is, not under special restricted access), but hidden in the huge defense budget, with only parts of it classified. A few days later Mr. Elizondo and others there — including Harold E. Puthoff, an engineer who has conducted research on extrasensory perception for the C.I.A. and later worked as a contractor on the program, and Christopher K. Mellon, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence — announced they were joining a new commercial venture, To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, to raise money for research into U.F.O.s. Leslie wrote it up for the Huffington Post with scant details of the program.

I had known Leslie for years, and she told me this looked like a story for The Times. I agreed. Leslie and I met with Mr. Elizondo in Philadelphia on Oct. 31. Three days later, I emailed the executive editor, Dean Baquet, about “a sensational and highly confidential time-sensitive story” that I said “involves a senior U.S. intelligence official who abruptly quit last month” exposing “a deeply secret program, long mythologized but now confirmed.”

He alerted Mark Mazzetti, the investigations editor in the Washington bureau. Leslie and I briefed him in New York on Nov. 7. We assured him there were no anonymous sources; everyone was on the record. After discussions in Washington and New York, Helene joined our team. The Washington bureau chief, Elisabeth Bumiller, would be our editor. On Nov. 17, we three met Mr. Elizondo in a nondescript Washington hotel where he sat with his back to the wall, keeping an eye on the door.

Carl Hulse, The Times’s chief Washington correspondent, was well acquainted with Mr. Reid and helped arrange an interview for Helene. She flew to Las Vegas on Dec. 5 and met with the former senator, who confirmed the program with details, saying, “I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this going.”

Leslie interviewed the aerospace magnate Robert Bigelow, who also confirmed his participation, saying Americans were being held back from serious research into U.F.O.’s by “a juvenile taboo.” And I interviewed a prominent skeptic for perspective.

It was important that we not take anything on faith. This field attracts zealots as well as debunkers, and many Americans remain deeply skeptical that the phenomenon exists as popularly portrayed. In draft after draft, we took pains to let the investigation speak for itself, without bias.

Helene met with a Pentagon spokesperson on Dec. 8 for a response to the information we had gathered. The answer came swiftly. There had been a program to investigate U.F.O.s, but it ended in 2012 after five years, the Defense Department insisted.

Our reporting suggested it continues, largely unfunded, to the present. And that’s what we wrote.

The Harry Reid "Investigation" was an obvious theft by unlawful taking.
Sets up a program and hands over millions of FRNs to his buddy.

What did we get for the money? Not a dam thing.

NAVY PILOT DESCRIBES ENCOUNTER WITH AIRCRAFT WITH 'NO PLUMES, WINGS, OR ROTORS' || WARTHOG 2017
Warthog Defense


Published on Dec 20, 2017
Commander David Fravor recently spoke to The New York Times about an encounter he had with a strange aircraft over the Pacific Ocean in 2004. He said the whole thing "weirded" him out. Fravor's account came on the heels of another Times report that the Pentagon spent $22 million in recent years on a shadowy program to investigate UFOs.

There are no aliens! The flying saucer bullshit of the 50's was a government hoax. SO much misinformation out there it should make you nauseous.

I'm sure there is other life out there. Be pretty far fetched to think that of the 200-400 billion stars just in our galaxy that we are the only ones. Compound that to the 200-400 billion galaxies that are out there and I just don't see how we are the only ones.

Also not so far fetched to think they have figured out how to cross interstellar space. Look where we were 100 yeaRS ago and now we are sending unmanned rockets into space to reload the space station. Rovers on mars and images of planets we didnt even know existed 500 years ago. Imagine a civilization that started 10,000 or even 100,000 or a million years before us. If they wanted us dead we would be dead already IMO.

Within 100 years we will probably have a space station on the moon and possibly even mars. Although I envision mars to be more of a starting colony for long term intergenerational type missions where we go and stay indefinitely.

I bet back in the days of cavemen if they were told one day man could ride horses made of iron and in birds of metal they'd throw the BS "skin" too as they sharpened their wooden spears and harden them in the fire, wondering "What is iron, what is metal" ? Jus' Sayin'

Until I actually see one I'm not buying this ET shit! Our government (all world governments together) can fake ANYTHING! They have an unlimited budget and unlimited resources! I'm not telling you not to believe, I'm just saying I don't!

Existence of UFOs 'proven beyond reasonable doubt', says former chief of real-life 'X-Files' department at the Pentagon
  • Luis Elizondo presided over Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program
  • He said of UFO sightings: 'I think it's pretty clear this is not us, and it's not anyone else, so one has to ask the question where they're from'
  • Added that the existence of unidentified flying objects had been 'proved beyond reasonable doubt'
  • The UFO program, popularly dubbed a real-life 'X-Files' case, was revealed to the public earlier this month

Unidentified Flying Objects doesn't mean aliens from Alpha Centauri. Unidentified means unidentified!

That video is eye opening. I've mentioned it before, but when I was researching my master's thesis I found a document on the IPCC website that stated (almost a quote) "Global warming will be the vehicle by which global governance shall be attained".

The comments below the vid are pretty good.

Are aliens real? Why did the government hide this information?

The US government recently released information about alien investigation and still unsolved sightings. What are your thoughts.

Two airmen involved in the 'British Roswell' may have been abducted by aliens when they went to investigate lights from a UFO in woodland, retired USAF colonel claims in newly-released footage
  • Charles Halt spoke with filmmaker Gary Heseltine for a documentary in 2010
  • Heseltine's film details the Rendlesham Forest incident in which two US army men might have interacted with a UFO in Suffolk, England
  • Video recently released shows Halt saying one of the men 'may have been abducted' and admitting that both men were 'unaccounted for hours'
  • When confronted about the video, Halt said: 'I never said anyone was abducted'
  • The incident in December 1980 has been dubbed the 'British Roswell' after an alleged UFO sighting in Roswell, New Mexico

Let me start by saying I have never been a believer of little green men flying around in spaceships but below are two videos (not mine) of something that my wife and I witnessed with our very own eyes while in Niagara Falls back in October of 2009.

We had just visited one of the local attractions and were standing outside waiting for our shuttle bus to take us back to our hotel when we had noticed a group of people looking skyward.

To this day I do not know what exactly it was that I had seen but I can tell you that it was mostly a clear night but there was a trace of clouds overhead. There appeared to be a metallic triangular shaped object that was stationary just at cloud level and there was absolutely no noise coming from it. We stood and watched this thing for a good 15-20 mins.

(What you are seeing in the video are the strobe lights from the casino that rotate outwardly and then meet together straight up in the sky, it is when the lights come together straight up that they appeared to reflect back off of whatever was there in the sky that night)

I grew up 15 miles from Wright-Patterson AFB.
Twice I've seen aerial objects that has behaviors aircraft even today can not do. One made local news as hundreds saw a glowing object zip around WPAFB's perimeter. Stopping in mid-air and moved out on a 45 degree angle.
I saw it as I was traveling West on I-70 towards Dayton coming from Springfield. It seemed to follow the road (East bound)coming towards us drivers on the interstate. I saw it stop and in one second head South towards Xenia in a 45 degree angle.
As a kid the family went out for an evening drive just outside of Vandalia, Ohio on back roads. The power company Dayton Power and Light at the time was promoting Customers buy street lights that have long driveways such as farms set back off the road to light the entrance to their driveway usually a gravel road at the time.
As my mom's boyfriend was driving us we came to a lighted area of road. The road had no lighting as we had been traveling and we thought it was a street light a property owner had bought.
As we passed under it the light went out like street lights do with a bad bulb or short.
I look out my rear window and saw a small white light going straight up and getting smaller and smaller. I watched the light get to star size, the light turned red and stayed red until it disappeared.
I remember when we got home mom making a comment "I didn't know we were out so long" as we got home.

Again, Nothing to this day travels like that did in general/commercial/ or military aviation (unless its Top Secret).

WE ARE NOT ALONE

I have been reading about and listening to and watching everything UFO for at least the last 50 years that I could get my hands on, however kind of tapered off the last decade as there wasn't much new that was original IMHO.

I spent a good part of my life outdoors, day and night, around the globe more or less. Most of it in the countryside vs. city [light pollution]. I personally have never seen a UFO. Everything I ever saw in the sky was identifiable to me. 20 years in the Army, I can pretty much determine what is a helicopter, what is a prop plane, what is a jet, what is a balloon.

My personal opinions have evolved to these points:

- We are not alone in this Universe. It is impossible for us to be the only intelligent or self-aware life form; never mind the only life. The odds are against both. This does not mean that anyone is able to travel here from anywhere else.

- What are the true Unidentified Flying Objects [taking away the misidentified objects like experimental aircraft, balloons etc.]? Based on the size of most of them reported [quite small], proximity to Earth, extreme speed and maneuverability, and lack of capacity to carry items needed on any long voyage, I have come to this conclusion: They are either vehicles that traveled in some manner unknown to us or our physics from some other solar system at a speed faster than light; or they are vehicles that have traveled in some manner unknown to us or our physics from another dimension or parallel universe [multi-verse theory]. Could be both are true. I should and will add that it is also possible they are merely scout craft from a larger vessel.

- Pilots / occupants of UFOs: From the more creditable reports of them, the small in stature greys with spindly arms and legs, oversized fetus shaped heads with the almond shaped eyes, seem to me to be engineered humanoids or androids. This would explain their ability to withstand extreme g forces such as encountered in right angle turns or reversal of direction at extremely high speeds. No human could withstand such forces as far as I know. Think of them as advanced drones or computers piloting a craft.

- Our government knows a lot they are not telling us. I or we can speculate all day and night, but we just don't know what they know and who knows it. What we do know is they are not telling us.

- They [the government] have some physical artifacts. What that exactly is; again we don't know and they are not telling us.

- I believe that some of our technology since WWII is derived at least in part from whatever artifacts the government has recovered. Fiber optic technology, transistor technology being two examples. This is not to say these things could not or are impossible for humans to develop, rather we got a jump start by seeing these things and then figuring out what they can do and be used for - a type of reverse engineering.
Just an example, I had a plastics experimenter science kit back in the early 1960's. Included was fiber. The guide that came with it said it can be used to transmit light like water through a pipe, around bends etc. A few years later, my father had a Cadillac that used that fiber - the fiber got it's light source from the various lights on the exterior of the car, red for tail - brake lights, yellow for turn signals. There was a post on the rear shelf, visible from the rear view mirror, where the fiber terminated. By looking at the post, if the lights were lit, your bulbs were working. No light, bulb burned out. We went from that to fiber optic communications devices. Amazing.

Just my thoughts, feel free to pick them apart or use them to spark your imagination.

If there are any real UFO's out there they are surely just watching us. Hopefully they would stop any nuclear war and it's also possible that they are monitoring our technology. If we ever get to the point where we can travel from star to star within our own galaxy then they may have to decide if they will let us.
We rape and pillage our planet as if we can move next door to the newest clean one. We murder each other in wars and have for 1000's of years. Any civilization that has the ability to travel interstellar would probably want top limit our travel capabilities until we grow up.

I hear you Cigarlover, but they might just be like humans looking at an ant farm. We might just be nothing to them.
And, they just might be the fungus among us already. Look I know every one likes the Billy Meier story and it is kind of compelling if one goes for the they are just trying to help thingy but let us face facts.
First fact: They have had a lot of f'n time to fix this whole mess so why is it not fixed already?

There I think that need be the only fact presented to propel my argument that the dog did not poop on the floor I did. There are no aliens. enokies, lillyputins, faries, angels or greek god, roman gods or anti aliens here with us. I mean I myself I like to speculate about the why does every one else see these things and yet not me but when I throw the fact above into the equation I come up with a "The sunabiotch's are just way more lazie-er than actual men so why should I ever think that they even exist?"

Free will does not enter into the equation because we now live in a world of no will in which we are compelled by our own honor to follow rules set by idiots/ourselves. See we need to fix this not aliens, just us.

Yeah, after reading all that I relize I am off the reservation.....stupid brain misfiring on one cup of coffee.

'What the f*** is that thing?' Shocking moment Navy pilot spots a mysterious object streaking across the Atlantic - and a former White House official says it could belong to Russia, China or ALIENS
  • Two-minute video captured a foreign object streaking about the Atlantic Ocean
  • A Us Navy F/A 18 jet flying 25,000 was able to lock onto the foreign object
  • Former defense officials implore government to fund research into UFOs
