An exclusive interview of Luis Elizondo, the former head of a secret Pentagon project to investigate Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), provides more detail about the work of the Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program (AATIP).

Elizondo’s video was aired at the recently held 2018 International UFO Congress in Scottsdale, Arizona. The International UFO Congress was established in 1991 and is held annually.

To The Stars Academy filmed the interview.

Controversy and debate

In a press statement, International UFO Congress organizer Alejandro Rojas said: “We’re delighted that Luis Elizondo agreed to give us this exclusive interview, answering numerous questions that have been submitted by UFO researchers, and shining a light on matters that were previously hidden from the public. I think this interview will generate huge interest, controversy, and debate.”

“This is a story that will keep on giving,” Rojas told Inside Outer Space. “UFO researchers, and writers like myself have discovered that the U.S. government still takes this issue seriously, despite claiming otherwise. Now that it has been revealed that there is an ongoing project to investigate these unidentified objects, we know where to look for files regarding their investigation,” he said.

Notion of aliens

Rojas said that this is a topic that fascinates the public, and apparently, government officials as well.

“Hopefully, this can help make the topic be taken more seriously, which Elizondo has said is his goal, and we can tackle the challenge these cases pose by conducting serious investigations,” Rojas added. “Even if these cases prove to be misidentifications, we can get past the notion that there is something silly about investigating unidentified craft in our skies just because we are uncomfortable with the notion of aliens.”
