Department of Defense admits to running multi-million dollar UFO program

All it took was a resignation letter for the truth to come out. "We tried to work within the system".

"We were trying to take the voodoo out of voodoo science", Elizondo told Politico.

The Pentagon confirmed AATIP's existence, though it's yet to comment on whether the program is still running despite lacking government funding.
