Join Dark Journalist, Daniel Liszt and his Special Guest Author and Researcher John Greenwald, who’s been publishing The Black Vault website since he was a teenager 20 years ago. The Black Vault is the largest privately run online repository of declassified government documents anywhere in the world. With more than 2 million pages of documents to read, on nearly every government secret imaginable.
Greenwald was genuinely excited about the story broken by the New York Times in November 2017 about an unheard-of Department of Defense UFO study program and the related disclosure efforts by To The Stars Academy (TTSA) and he dug deeper into the claims of its founders, Luis Elizondo, Tom DeLonge and an array of CIA agents.
Greenwald constructed a detailed timeline of their various claims and found a lot of contradictions, inconsistencies and outright falsehoods, according to this report. Freedom of Information Act requests made by Greenwald about the DoD’s alleged Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program (AATIP), where TTSA founder Luis Elizondo claimed to have worked have so far come up empty-handed and he was told that no such program existed.
He and Liszt discuss the heavy presence of CIA Officials involved in TTSA and how it appears to be an operation aimed at managing the UFO narrative, rather than truly disclosing anything.
The spotty coverage of this story, which had resulted in an immense amount of traffic for outlets like The New York Times is also unusual, as normally in online publishing, this would impel them to publish many follow-up reports and there have been almost none.
