In October of 2017, Luis Elizondo stepped out of the shadows. Whether he wanted it or not, he became an instant celebrity to UFO enthusiasts the moment he walked across a dimly lit stage. He stepped up to the microphone and began recounting his time with the Department of Defense (DOD), and how he had run a “sensitive aerospace threat identification program.” Then, at a moment which appeared to be marred by some reluctance in his voice, Elizondo told the world that while he ran that program, he learned “the phenomena,” as he called it, was “indeed real.”
The “phenomena” he refers to is that of the “unidentified aerial” kind; or more popularly referred to as simply UFOs.
He was introduced to the stage by Tom DeLonge, a rock star and entrepreneur who had recently formed To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA). Elizondo was part of a newly developed team which aimed to, “…investigate the outer edges of science and unconventional thinking in order to push human knowledge.” Exactly what Elizondo’s role would be in this newly formed group was not immediately known, but his story intrigued the masses.

I read the entire article/interview about Luis Elizondo. I came away with the same attitude I have with most government employees this includes our congressional representatives. "I wouldn't trust him as far as I could spit."
When I was just a lad I was taught and always heard the saying "honesty is the best policy." As an adult I never hear this saying anymore. Lying is so pernicious in our society today. The reason being it is so easy to lie than to tell the truth.
The United States government which is supposed to look after the best interests of the people doesn't. Instead the government has become the enemy of the people. With this said how can anybody trust whatever Mr. Elizondo says or does. He is a part of the government establishment.
Since lying is so rampant in our society one must take the attitude of Fox Mulder of the X-Files "Trust No One". We must even question the intentions of the BLACK VAULT. For example is it conceivable that the VAULT has been compromised by government intelligence agencies.
History channels "Ancient Aliens" is it an extension of the governments "Project Mockingbird." The high profile UFO/UAP media experts are they government "provocateurs" or political operatives whose main purpose is to dispense misinformation.
In the final analysis it comes down to each individual person. Does our intuition tells us to trust that individual or individuals. At times this can be very gut wrenching decisions.
