Mystery over top secret UFO program, US government is accused of backtracking

Posted by K R on

THE mystery of a top-secret UFO programme has deepened after government officials claimed there was confusion about its purpose - while experts accused them of backtracking. The Pentagon last week confirmed the existence of a $22million programme - called the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) - which investigated sightings of UFOs between 2007 to 2012. The revelation excited UFO fans around the world as it was the first time the US government had admitted investigating UFOs since 1969. The organization's work was outed by Luis Elizondo when he told the New York Times he ran the shadowy Department of Defense program from 2007 to 2012 and says he continued to look into the issue until he resigned in October this year. Two bombshell videos of unexplained UFO sightings by US military personnel - investigated by the AATIP - were also published. However, when contacted by Sun Online, the Defense Intelligence Agency - the Department of Defense's spy arm, which first started the programme - claimed there had been some misunderstandings. They said there was "confusion" over the AATIP's purpose, and denied releasing any videos or files related to it.
