AATIP Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program

December 16th, 2017, The New York Times ran a story entitled “Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’:” The Pentagon’s Mysterious UFO Program.

Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, otherwise known as AATIP was a secret investigatory effort funded by the United States Government to study unidentified flying objects.

The program began in 2007, with funding of $22 million over the five years until the available appropriations were supposedly ended in 2012.

Retired Nevada lawmaker Harry Reid was AATIP’s catalyst, earmarking over $20 million of the defense department’s budget to fund it. Billionaire Robert Bigelow’s aerospace company secured many of the program’s early contracts. 

The NY TIMES article reported that the program had been run by a former Pentagon official named Luis Elizondo, a senior career intelligence officer with top security clearance and with experience in everything from microbiology and parasitology to the study of global terrorism.

It was Elizondo’s job to investigate reports of unidentified flying objects, and to measure what threat they could pose to national security.

AATIP received these cases from various different channels. In some cases, reporting would come up through Navy channels. In other cases, it would come up through Air Force channels. In other cases, it would come through the intelligence community, and all roads led to our office, regarding the phenomena.

Elizondo played a key role in the government’s top secret AATIP program prior to his leaving the government in 2017.
Among the reasons given for his departure was the bitterness he felt that the research he was conducting, and the conclusions that he and his colleagues were reaching, were not being taken seriously by other agencies within the government.

Luis Elizondo released several videos through Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy

But perhaps the most shocking information to come from Tom DeLonge and his To The Stars Academy was Luis Elizondo’s claim that Bigelow Aerospace had modified its buildings for the storage of strange metal alloys of unknown origin, also known as metamaterials.

Many say that this has “psyop” all over it and must be a cover-up from the government to hide something even bigger. Others say this is how disclosure will/is happening. Tell us your opinion in the comments bellow!
