Pentagon Whistleblower Hints That Pilots Who Encountered UFOs Had Radiation Burns

It’s been four years since an explosive feature in The New York Times revealed a shadowy program run by the US military and tasked with investigating — yes, seriously — UFO encounters, accompanied by several videos showing the purported encounters.

Several pilots have come forward since then to discuss what they saw, which they’ve often characterized as oddly-shaped objects that appeared to defy the laws of physics as they hurtled through the air.

Former Pentagon intelligence officer and self-styled UFO whistleblower Luis Elizondo has publicly spoken of his own experiences, though his credibility has at times been called into question.

In a new interview with GQ, Elizondo suggested that pilots who had encountered the craft had ended up with physical symptoms, although his phrasing was ambiguous.

“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.”

Elizondo even went as far as saying that other pilots experienced the “warping of space time,” only using “five minutes’ worth of fuel” despite 30 minutes having passed.

“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.

Tantalizingly, he also said that there are even more unreleased videos of the strange phenomena.

“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.”

So stay tuned — not necessarily for evidence of UFOs, but certainly for drama.

“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.
