Alejandro Rojas, a journalist and radio talk show host known for his work with UFOs spoke to a packed room Friday at the International UFO Museum Research Center about a recently declassified Pentagon program.

The presentation was one of a host of presentations that attracted people to the 23rd annual UFO Festival.

 

 

 

During the hour-long presentation, Rojas, a host for Open Minds Radio and contributing editor for Open Minds magazine, spoke about the revelation that from 2007 to 2011 there was a U.S. Department of Defense program that investigated military sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena.

 

News of the existence of the program surfaced in late 2017 with the leak of a Pentagon document and in December a story on the front page of The New York Times. Rojas said officials at the Pentagon say the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program ended in 2012 when it ran out of funding.

 

Rojas said Luis Elizondo, the former head of the program, and former Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., who was instrumental in gaining congressional approval for funding of the program, says it still exists.

 

Rojas said he was told high-ranking officials are in charge of the program, but Rojas asked him not to reveal the exact rank of the individuals.

 

“So it is not just low-level staffers or something, like how all original UFO investigations used to be in the ‘50s. This is very high-level,” he said.
