Former Pentagon official: Pilots who encountered UFOs had radiation burns

Luis Elizondo
Luis Elizondo is a former U.S. Army Counterintelligence Special Agent and former employee of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence.

He is the former director of the now defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, a $22 million special access program initiated by the Defense Intelligence Agency in order to study unidentified aerial phenomena, also known as UFOs. This program is associated with the release of the Pentagon UFO videos.

Elizondo has since appeared in various media as an UFO expert, but critics question Elizondo’s credibility and credulity.

In a recent interview with GQ, Elizondo said that pilots who had come into contact with the UFO had developed health complaints.

“I’ve got to be careful, I can’t speak too specifically, but one might imagine that you get a report from a pilot who says, ‘Lue, it’s really weird. I was flying and I got close to this thing and I came back home and it was like I got a sunburn. I was red for four days,’” he told the magazine.

The former intelligence officer had his own interpretation of what that could mean.

“Well, that’s a sign of radiation,” he said. “That’s not a sunburn; it’s a radiation burn.”

Other pilots, according to Elizondo, experienced “space time warping,” using just “five minutes’ worth of fuel” despite the fact that 30 minutes had gone.

“And the closer you get to one of these vehicles, the more you may begin to experience space time relative to the vehicle and the environment,” he told GQ.

“There’s videos out there [in government, that the public haven’t seen] — there’s one that’s 23 minutes long,” Elizondo told GQ. “There’s another one where this thing is 50 feet away from the cockpit.”

“We’re going to begin sharing information a lot more and I think people may be surprised just how much information is possessed on this topic by other countries,” Elizondo added.
