'One of the former leaders of a covert government program meant to investigate the nature of 'unknown aerial phenomenon' is opening up about some of the strange and often unexplained accounts.
In an upcoming History Channel documentary featuring former head of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), Luis Elizondo details his involvement with the Pentagon's UFO research program in a blockbuster New York Times report from 2017.
In the Times' report, Elizondo revealed that he left the secretive $22 million government program after what he has termed excessive secrecy and internal opposition to the project.
