For those denizens of the conspiracy fringes, the second half of 2017 has already been a doozy.
Earlier in the year, President Trump announced that he would allow a decades-old legal order expire, allowing a massive treasure trove of documents regarding John F. Kennedy’s assassination go public. This had American conspiracy theorist ecstatic, and waiting with baited breath for the late October release date for these thousands of files. When they were finally bequeathed unto the public, the files confirmed some of the already accepted theories, created a whole slew of new questions to be answered, and gave us clues to some bizarrely unrelated issues as well.
Now, as we approach 2018 in earnest, former FBI and Navy officials have dropped another bombshell regarding the existence of a secret government program that spent $22 million investigating incredible claims of military pilots engaging with what could only be extraterrestrial spacecraft.
That story, which has been somewhat muted by political chaos around the planet, came complete with claims of recovered artifacts from these spacecraft – something that many Americans missed.
Now, a former FBI chief has a stern and blunt message for the rest of the world: UFO’s exist, and that is an unquestionable fact.
“Speaking to The Telegraph Elizondo said: ‘I think it’s pretty clear this is not us, and it’s not anyone else, so one has to ask where they’re from.’
“‘In my opinion, if this was a court of law, we have reached the point of “beyond reasonable doubt”. I hate to use the term UFO but that’s what we’re looking at.’
“He said much of what he could discuss was still classified but said there had been ‘lots’ of UFO sightings during the programme.
“Luis Elizondo oversaw the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which ran for five years between 2007 and 2012.”
Even the ardent UFO communities online have had a bit of a shock due to men such as Elizondo finally coming forward and confirming what many have believed.
There are several theories as to why we are suddenly seeing a large interest in UFO disclosure by our government, ranging from the rather mundane notion that someone such as Wikileaks could be close to exposing a massive swatch of alien-related material, to the bizarre belief that world governments are aware of a coming interaction between earth and the others, and these stories are a coordinated effort to subconsciously prepare the public.
