Lue Elizondo, former director of AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program), recently spoke out on social media, revealing when to expect more details on UAPs in the ongoing disclosure efforts. But his comments also included a warning about people trying to sabotage disclosure. Here’s a look at what he said, and the background behind his words.
To review a comprehensive, in-depth breakdown of all of UFO whistleblower David Grusch’s claims, with citations, see our story here.
Elizondo Said More Details About UAPs Will Be Revealed in Early 2024
On the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), Elizondo revealed that it won’t be long before we will be learning more about UFOs.
Elizondo has a long history connected to UFO disclosure. He’s the former director of AATIP, which predated the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF). The UAPTF is the agency that whistleblower David Grusch was part of before he made his allegations that the U.S. has a secret UAP retrieval program.
Elizondo provided an update on October 13, writing: “Howdy folks, just a quick update for you to consider… please know that ongoing efforts are underway that will reveal themselves by early to mid 2024.”
So, according to his post, it won’t be much longer before ongoing disclosure efforts bear more fruit.
Continuing his message, he added: “At the risk of haters trying to sabotage our efforts, I can’t be precise at this time. But if you have learned anything over the last 5 years, I never make empty promises. Trust me, this will be worth it.”
He then tagged Chris K. Mellon and Jay Stratton in his tweet. Those tags are significant.
Mellon is the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and former staff director for the Senate Intelligence Committee. He’s a huge proponent of UAP disclosure. Although Mellon has not replied to Elizondo’s tweet, he has shared updates of his own. Pinned at the top of Mellon’s X profile is a message from June that reads: “I’ve always believed that the public has a right to know if our government has proof that some UAP are of off-world origin. Lately, I’ve also come to the conclusion that, if true, revealing this incredible secret would also be very much in the interest of our nation and indeed humanity itself. ”
As for Stratton, he has had significant roles in every UAP government research program that predated AARO, Post Apocalyptic Media previously reported. This includes AAWSAP, AATIP, and UAPTF. When Stratton headed the UAPTF, 8 News Now reported, he asked Dr. Travis Taylor of Skinwalker Ranch to be the UAPTF’s chief scientist. Grusch was part of the UAPTF at the same time as Taylor. Stratton also has a connection to Skinwalker Ranch, as he worked with Robert Bigelow on government-funded anomalous research performed there before Brandon Fugal purchased the ranch.

Stratton and Elizondo have a history of supporting disclosure. In July 2023, Stratton and Elizondo co-authored a letter sharing how pleased they were with the House UAP hearing, including Grusch, Graves, and Fravor’s testimonies.
Elizondo Listed the Disclosure Progress We’ve Seen So Far
One person, unhappy with UAP revelations replied to Elizondo, writing in part: “You had their attention for the summer. Nothing came of it. No proof. So, now the public even thinks its more Crud that it was. So, they only way to get them back is with proof… I am not your enemy as I always state, I want this to be true. But I am a realist.”
Elizondo answered with a list of disclosure successes they’ve recently had.
He wrote that their successes included the Department of Defense finally admitting that UAPs are a real “flight safety issue,” an office being set up to analyze UAPs (likely referring to AARO), legislation passed twice, real whistleblower protection (which paved the way for Grusch to come forward), former senior officials admitting UAPs are real, an engaged international community, and public hearings.
