When The New York Times exposed the Pentagon’s secret UFO program AATIP, it became known that the US government never stopped investigating UFOs since the Project Bluebook was shut down. Luis Elizondo, the man behind this program has declassified several secrets of the US defense agency that allowed many witnesses from the government itself to speak about their encounters with the phenomenon. Now, for the time on the public platform, someone dares to admit that the Pentagon hired him as a “UFO hunter.”
In an interview on June 21, 2022, with George Knapp on KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, Dr. Travis Taylor announced that he served as the head of science for the U.S. government’s UAP Task Force, the entity which analyzed UFO incidents and delivered the June 2021 report to Congress which precipitated the current Congressional UFO action, including a 2021 law establishing a permanent UFO office and a 2022 UFO hearing.
Dr. Travis Taylor has been a popular face in the UFOlogy. He has appeared on popular TV shows such as “Ancient Aliens” and “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch” and is one of the world’s best-known UFO hunters.
While serving in this capacity, Dr. Taylor appeared on CBS Sunday Morning in 2021 to analyze UFO videos and comment on the imminent UFO report without disclosing to CBS or to the audience that he was a paid government UFO researcher working on that very report.

Dr. Taylor also works for a defense contractor analyzing UFOs for the federal government. He and his former UAPTF boss both now work for the same contractor.
Mysterywire writes: “As a scientific prodigy, Dr. Taylor earned advanced degrees at a young age and has spent his entire adult life working on classified projects, first for the U.S. Army, then for defense contractors. He wrote a book about how the U.S. government should prepare for alien contact which caught the attention of Jay Stratton, a high-ranking intelligence official who has been involved with each of the Pentagon’s Secretive UFO investigations including AAWSAP, the largest UFO program of all, managed by the Defense Intelligence Agency, based at Bigelow Aerospace in Las Vegas, funded with $22 million secured by late U.S. Sen. Harry Reid. Stratton worked with AAWSAP, then its successor program AATIP. Later, he took charge of a third effort, the UAP Task Force, long before Congress formally created that team.”
Dr. Taylor was asked by Jay Stratton, the director of the UAP Task Force if he would like to join the task force as the chief scientist. Dr. Taylor unhesitatingly agreed with it. He was involved in writing the final report to Congress summarizing the known evidence about UFOs.
The team created a classified briefing consisting of the most intriguing military encounters, starting with the 2004 Tic Tac incident. The task force whittled down a huge database into 144 of the very best cases. “We picked sources that were, we knew had a chain of custody of the data. And out of those 144 to 143 of them, we still couldn’t figure out what they were, where they came from and what their intent was,” Dr. Taylor said.
He added: “But here’s the thing. A skeptic and a debunker, they take their results by starting from the beginning … by knowing that the result is going to be this. So they change … they take the analysis to lead them in the direction to do that.”
“The data that we had, in many cases, there was more of it than what the general public has and what was released. And so when we say that we had a thing that was from multiple sensors, and it told us multiple things, and we also had eyewitness accounts, audio information, and so on,” Dr. Taylor said.
Dr. Taylor and the task force members were stunned to know that a Navy official told a Congressional hearing last month that all of these were “drones,” as if the mystery has been solved. It was done to disregard the work of the task force.
Fortunately, Dr. Taylor said that they have a lot of sensory data which fails to provide any conclusive information on them. Dr. Taylor went into much greater detail about why the “drone” scenario falls far short of explaining the 2019 UFO encounters. And also why so many UFO videos appear to be fuzzy.
In his interview with George Knapp in May 2022, Dr. Taylor said: “You know, I had never seen a UFO until I got out there. Now, I have seen more UFOs now than you can count.”
In a surprisingly candid and wide-ranging interview, Dr. Taylor shared his opinions about the role of science in the pursuit of the unknown, his personal experiences with strange phenomena on Skinwalker Ranch, the physical effects of close encounter cases, and the mysterious “hitchhiker effect” that multiple UFO/paranormal eyewitnesses have reported.
In his opinion, this unexplained phenomenon can be different for people in regards to their brain activity. Hypothetically speaking, he said that the phenomenon can be connected with different planes in the universe. He added that he could go along with the idea of a portal but was not sure. He believes it is bizarre but there is some truth to it.
