On Dec. 2017, the New York Times published a story about a secretive UFO program ran out of the Pentagon. The project the NYT referred to was the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). However, since the NYT posted their article, more information has come to light, and it turns out the program had a different name in 2007 when it began.
There has been a lot of confusion around this issue, myself included. Other researchers had found that the project’s first name was the Advanced Aerospace Weapons System Application Program (AAWSAP). So why did the NYT refer to it as AATIP?
Using information from my interviews with former AATIP chief Elizondo, and information found online in other interviews, I put together what I could on how AAWSAP became AATIP. I then interviewed Elizondo to fill in gaps and verify what I thought I knew was accurate and correct what I had wrong. I was then able to put together the information in this post that Elizondo has verified as correct.
