Louise Elizondo, Christopher Melon, Leslie Kean discussed on New Yorker Radio Hour
Is what dominates UFO discussions for the next 50 years. Until 2017 when Leslie Kean dropped her bombshell report. In October of 2017. You were called to, um, Hotel bar in near the Pentagon. Not really. A bar. Hotel space fold space hotel lobby space near the Pentagon. And who was there? And what did you learn? Well, The main reason for that meeting was for me to meet Louise Elizondo, who was the former head of the Department of Defense Program hand. Christopher Melon, who was a former undersecretary of defense for intelligence at the Pentagon. Was there And former CIA person. And it was at that meeting that I was first shown the videos, the three videos that eventually came out as well as a lot of documents that Established the reality of the program. This man, Luis Elizondo was a former counterintelligence officer. He'd been running a secret program at the Pentagon for years studying UFOs. That program had begun in 2007 when Nevada Senator Harry Reid had found $22 million in black money appropriations to set up an investigation into the reality of the phenomenon. Well, I came to the realization despite all my staff, telling you to stay the hell away from it that Was something that Had to be done. That's Harry Reid, I think would have been a year legislative malpractice for me not to get involved. In hindsight, it has hurt me politically. I fact that I could go today and one of the hotels here in Vegas style this area.
