A former US intelligence officer said “there isn’t a damn thing we can do” about aggressive UFOs.
Luis Elizondo says he resigned from his post on the Pentagon’s secretive Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program in a bid to bring flying saucers into the mainstream, warning they are “national security issue”.
And while much of his work remains “classified” he has seen “very very compelling” data which convinced him of the existence of these strange objects seemingly menacing the US.
He said: “I am not a UFO guy, I am an investigator, my job was simple, to collect the data and speak the truth,” Mr Elizondo told The US Sun.
“There is something in our skies, we don’t know what it is, we don’t know how it works, we don’t know fully what it can do, we don’t know who is behind the wheel, we don’t know its intentions, and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it.”
Mr Elizondo says he was the former director of the secretive Pentagon unit that reportedly studied UFOs between 2007 and 2012.
The expert recently claimed the US government is gearing up to reveal the “reality” of UFOs.
He told a press conference: “I think for me the most concerning thing are those incidents that involve our nuclear equities.
“There seems to be a very distinct congruency between UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), associated UAP activity and and our nuclear technology.
“Whether it be propulsion or weapon systems or whatnot. And that’s concerning to the point where we’ve actually had some of our nuclear capabilities disabled by these things.
“So, you know, again, let’s put this into context of foreign adversarial technology if Russia or China had the ability to disable our nuclear strike capability or defence capability.”
Professor Daniel Drezner said so days after the US former director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed the Pentagon files included declassified intelligence of aircraft “that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom”.
The international politics expert at Tufts University wrote in the Washington Post: “Does this evidence point toward the prospect of extraterrestrial observation of our planet? If so, how should we feel about that?

“I am not going to speculate on the first question beyond noting that if Harvard astrophysicists are making that suggestion about interstellar phenomena, perhaps we need at least to consider the possibility that these UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) might also be extraterrestrial in origin.”
