Lue Goes There
In a sobering reply to a podcaster’s question, Lue Elizondo, the former AATIP head, appears to confirm the ET hypothesis in an interview live-streamed by a Canadian filmmaker on YouTube.
In a Canadian filmmaker’s podcast aired live Tuesday, the former head of the now defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, Luis Elizondo, seemed to confirm that extraterrestrials — or some unknown non-human intelligence or life form — are the source of what the English-speaking world calls UFOs.

In a 2019 interview with FoxNews talk show host Tucker Carlson cited by New Yorker magazine in May, he seemed to imply that UFO crash debris was in the possession of the government — before he then cited his NDA and backed off.
Today, Jaimungal, who is relatively new to podcasting, concluded the 80-minute interview by asking Elizondo a question that was posed by a viewer who identified himself by his Reddit handle, u/lonesomespacecowboy. He first asked it about halfway through the program, and Elizondo seemed so genuinely astonished and…
