Disclosures made by former officials who worked on the Pentagon’s UFO inquiry

A recent Military.com report based on interviews with a number of retired officers involved in the Pentagon inquiry into UFO encounters made the stunning disclosures.

A guy from Oregon said that when a luminous blue orb traveled through his body, his health started to worsen. A family in California saw a thin-legged gray creature in their lawn and reported unusual lighting. According to reports, a werewolf-like beast prowled among homes in suburban Virginia. The Pentagon’s covert UFO investigative program looked into all three instances.

Its leaders claim that over a period of two years, a link between flying objects and paranormal events was established. This marked the beginning of a multi-year campaign by UFO researchers that ultimately resulted in Congress passing legislation ordering the Pentagon to conduct an investigation into unexplained flying objects for the next four years in December 2021.


After concerns developed that aliens may be a threat to national security, James Lacatski, a retired Defense Intelligence Agency official, said in an interview that the military started to take UFO accounts more seriously.

Lacatski remarked, “You know what was on the internet at the time, to me it simply seemed like amazing technology.” ‘I’m fascinated,’ I proclaimed. If this is true, we must take action. And I talked to my management, and that’s where it all began,” he continued.

Later research by Lacatski came to light the story of Navy pilots from the USS Nimitz strike team who observed an unidentified flying object that resembled a “Tick-Tock” during a Pacific practice.

After a 2017 leak that former Pentagon and CIA officials used to pressure the government to take UFOs seriously, this incident and eyewitness testimony turned into crucial evidence. Lacatski would collaborate closely with Colm Kelleher, a contractor who oversaw the UFO program’s daily operations.

Kelleher, a biochemist and cancer researcher, had his training in Ireland, and there is still a hint of an Irish accent in his speech. He had spent years working for the rich aerospace business owner and Las Vegas real estate tycoon Robert Bigelow, who also had a keen interest in UFOs and the afterlife.

Both of them discussed three service members whose names were kept secret by academics and the Department of Defense in an interview with Military.com.

The sailor and two Marines were dispatched to Utah’s Skinwalker Ranch following the Nimitz probe.

In northern Utah, close to the hamlet of Ballard, Skinwalker is situated on a little more than 500 acres of steppe terrain. The Navajo and Ute tribes of Native Americans, who think that evil witches known as skinwalkers may change into animal-like animals, have long told stories about this place being the hub of odd occurrences.

Conversely, Lue Elizondo, a former counterintelligence special agent and army veteran who was also involved in the inquiry, always thinks carefully before speaking.

In an office in Rosslyn, just over the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., Lacatski and Elizondo had a meeting in 2008. Elizondo was a candidate for recruitment into the DIA program, according to the DIA analyst.

What do you think of UFOs? he said as he gave me a serious look. In an interview with Military.com, Elizondo remarked. “I was truthful. I affirmed that I don’t consider it. What do you mean, you don’t believe in them? he questioned. “I didn’t say that,” I retorted. I didn’t say that I thought about them.

Elizondo ultimately decided against joining Lacatski. But once the DIA program was terminated, he went on to oversee the Pentagon’s smaller internal UFO program.

Elizondo fought to allow the public release of infrared cockpit recordings of the Navy incidents. Then, in 2017, he left the Pentagon in protest and came forward as a whistleblower. In the Pentagon parking lot, Chris Mellon, a former deputy secretary of defense for intelligence, was given access to the three films.

In December 2017, the Pentagon’s UFO program was first reported by the New York Times, which used Elizondo and Mellon as its primary sources.

Along with Hal Puthoff, a physicist who worked on the DIA and CIA psychic remote viewing programs in the 1970s and 1980s, Elizondo and Mellon were founding members.

As Semivan, who also provided advisory services to Elizondo when he oversaw the Pentagon AATIP program, put it, “We all recognized that this did not belong to the military, that this phenomena and these UAPs are sprouting everywhere.” They occur above military and nuclear facilities, carrier task force groups, and other locations along these lines, but they also appear across the country and the rest of the world.

“It’s obviously doing something and it’s obviously having an influence if something’s been here for a long time and it really is showing up in people’s bedrooms, or in front of an F-18, or on a petroglyph wall, or in an ancient text down in the archive of the Vatican, or whatever it might be,” DeLonge said in a YouTube video released in December.

Through most of the UFO discussion in Washington, the findings of Lacatski and Kelleher would stay largely hidden from the public’s view. To some on the Hill, the unanswered issues regarding UFO encounters were nonetheless persuasive.

Emily Harding, the deputy director and senior scholar in the international security program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington, D.C., think tank, stated, “There are too many things that are unexplained that we really need an explanation for.”
