George Knapp - AATIP: Past, Present and Future
Lecture: AATIP: Past, Present and Future
In this presentation, investigative reporter George Knapp – joined by his colleague Jeremy Corbell – will present information about the misunderstood origins and development of the recent Pentagon acknowledged UFO programs – both AATIP and its host program AAWSAP. How they began – what their focus was – and how they interacted. They will also explore the Nimitz “Tic Tac” encounter, as reported by key witness Cmdr. David Fravor, and why that case played a critical role in changing the perception of UFO phenomena in Congress and the news media. Contrary to Pentagon statements, the Department of Defense program on UFOs did not end in 2012. It is ongoing. This presentation will reveal what efforts are underway behind the scenes to study and understand the phenomena, based on high level, up-to-the-minute contacts with key investigators, contractors, and military officials.
