AATIP, Elizondo and More: Tim McMillan Interview on The Basement Office

By | February 14, 2020

Another interesting interview and nicely encapsulated by Steven Greenstreet of the New York Post with a short interview with Tim McMillen. This is about confirmation of several things: documents providing that Luis Elizondo did work for AATIP, that it did (and does) investigate UFOs, and more. 

I’ve also included a link to McMillen’s article, published today.


There’s lots in there, although not as much new info as one would like. Still, it’s further confirmation of the reality of UFOs. Here’s one good quote:

The evidence collected here overwhelmingly suggests the government was indeed studying UFOs and not, as the Pentagon has said, “investigating foreign advanced aerospace weapons system applications with future technology projections over the next 40 years, and to create a center of expertise on advanced aerospace technologies.”

There’s a lot more info in here. Lots also that strikes me as fluff, but that’s Popular Mechanics for you. Of course, it’s worth at least a smile to see Mr. McMillan finally come to a point where he makes these admissions. All it took was to do the basic amount of research that everyone else has been doing for years. But in any case, I say, welcome aboard and keep learning.

    Looking at the big picture, the Popular Mechanics article should move the football down the field at least a little bit.

    Hey I find it kinda funny, we haven’t heard anything from John Greenwald. He’s only out there when it’s something against Ttsa! At least be a mature researcher and admit that you made a mistake. The problem is he jumps so fast to negatively. I suppose patien comes with age. I can attest to that,lol!

      John Grreenwald was suspicious about Louis Elizondo based on bad information. To me he wanted to interview him for a long time. I recall a letter he put up inviting the TTSA group to discuss his concerns. It was on his website. I am glad John was willing to change his mind. I am satisfied with his change of heart. I do not need an i was wrong statements from him. He has changed his position now.

        From what I heard, Elizondo was fully available for a long time. Anyway, I am glad that they worked it out. I do like and respect John so this is a good development.

        It was about 4days after I wrote that comment. I watch his interview with Tim mcmillian , it was really good interview. I’m glad he came around. You could hear in the way he asked questions at first he wasn’t buying it. All’s good in our u .f.o world again,lol Thank you Joe

    Thanks for the heads up, Richard.

    What’s astonishing about this article, in my view, is not so much the material presented (it ain’t new) but the fact that a mainstream publication such as Popular Mechanics is willing to cross the line and treat the subject seriously (again!). I suspect the field has reached that invisible tipping point where the magic equation involving
    * public interest
    * ridicule
    * evidence
    * access to information
    crosses over to mainstream. It may not be an avalanche, but taking the “toothpaste” metaphor further, it behaves more like a siphon now — not only what goes out stays out, but the forces at work are at that critical point where the flow keeps flowing.

      As a former librarian, I can attest that about 15 years ago or so, Popular Mechanics ran a UFO story about how bogus they were. Truly. I remember reading it and getting angry that they summarily dismissed the entire phenomenon as being not worthy of anything to investigate. They summed it up as people seeing things that were just black op military or were wrong because they weren’t ‘professional observers,’ et al.

      Of course those ‘professional observers’ very often miss the central core anyway, because of academic bias, and an appallingly uneducated group of scientists who ignore the data.

      I’m glad to see Popular Mechanics updated their pov to at least attempt a serious tone.

      NY Post “proves” that L. Elizondo told us “truth”. On top of that, newspaper uses video to convey the message to semi illiterate masses.

      Same NY Post failed to address a single case from Disclosure Project (2001).

      So did Louis Elizondo.

      That does not pass the smell test.

    A really interesting article. Yes is a bit fluffy, but you have to consider its written for the everyday Joe public reader. (admittedly Popular Mechanics tend to attract a more techno engineer type then GQ or gossip type reads.) It still gets the info out the public and keeps the conversation going which is a good thing.

    I follow this stuff fairly closely. Is this 2009 10 month review, 500 pages, not new info?! And where can I get a copy!!??
    “In July 2009, BAASS provided a comprehensive report to the DIA at the conclusion of the first-year option of the AAWSAP contract. The 494-page “Ten Month Report,” as it’s called, is chock full of strategic plans, project summaries, data tables, charts, descriptions of biological field effects, physical characteristics, methods of detection, theoretical capabilities, witness interviews, photographs, and case synopses”
    Seems to me Greenwald or some publication stated that AAWSAP solely consisted of 38 research papers and that’s it.

    I have to be painfully real right now. I am beginning to think that the minimal information that has evidently come from the military over the past couple of years is an attempt to make people disinterested in the topic. And this is coming from a woman who has been hot on the trail since childhood.
    The original old S. Greer press conference with all the witnesses speaking had a lot more first hand testimony and meaning, for me anyway, than whatever has come through this most recent information outlet. And the repetition almost seems to be a way to make people stop listening. That in itself is the most surprising part of all the TTSA extravaganza for me, personally.

    Take care, Rita

    The Pentagon tried to dumb down the program so as to deny it studied alien craft. Now since has been exposed as lies their denial and deception hopefully will be retracted. They whoever slandered Luis Elizondo should feel ashamed.
