Documents from a 2010 report from the now-defunct Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP), a program funded by the Pentagon, claim that Americans who encountered UFOs had suffered radiation burns, brain and nervous system damage.
Those documents, part of 1,500 pages released to The Sun, which originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request in 2017, stated, “Sufficient incidents/accidents have been accurately reported, and medical data acquired, as to support a hypothesis that some advanced systems are already deployed, and opaque to full US understandings.”
“The report – titled Anomalous Acute And Subacute Field Effects on Human and Biological Tissues – investigates injuries to ‘human observers by anomalous advanced aerospace systems,’” The Sun reported, adding that the report also stated that humans had been injured from “exposures to anomalous vehicles, especially airborne and when in close proximity. … The report noted that often these injuries are related to electromagnetic radiation – and links them to ‘energy related propulsion systems.’”
The report added, “Classified information exists that is highly pertinent to the subject of this study and only a small part of the classified literature has been released.”
AATIP, operational between 2007 and 2012 to study UFOs, was revealed by its former chief, Luis Elizondo, in 2017. “For years, the program investigated reports of unidentified flying objects, according to Defense Department officials,” The New York Times reported, adding, “The shadowy program — parts of it remain classified — began in 2007, and initially it was largely funded at the request of Harry Reid …”
In a 2021 interview with GQ, Elizondo stated:
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.” Well, that’s a sign of radiation. That’s not a sunburn; it’s a radiation burn. Then [a pilot] might say, if [they] had got a little closer, “Lue, I’m at the hospital. I’ve got symptoms that are indicative of microwave damage, meaning internal injuries, and even in my brain there’s some morphology there.”
And then you might get somebody who gets really close and says, “You know, Lue, it’s really bizarre. It felt like I was there for only five minutes, but when I looked at my watch 30 minutes went by, but I only used five minutes’ worth of fuel. How is that possible?” Well, there’s a reason for that, we believe, and it probably has to do with warping of space time. 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.
