Luis Elizondo - Insights from investigating unidentified threats for the U.S. Department of Defense
Luis says: â€œThe UFO community have been ridiculed and marginalized and yet, somehow, doggedly persisted in their pursuit of the truth, despite the naysayers and cynics.â€ He continues: â€œIt is a fact that part of my inspiration for coming forward after these many years was due to the multitudes of brave men and women who continued to ask the hard questions despite the common consensus of the system.â€
Although he was not physically present at the conference, we showed an interview with Luis recorded exclusively for the International UFO Congress. Alejandro outlined the timeline for how the New York Times story on Elizondo came about, and after the video interview, former UK Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope shared his thoughts.
