“He conducted the first in-depth investigation of the Tic Tac case, and is the only person in the entire government to work on all of the major UFO probes, including the DIA's ambitious program (AAWSAP), its successor (AATIP), and then the UAP Task Force which he created, organized, and directed before it was formally authorized by Congress.
The creator and former director of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF), Jay Stratton, has given his first public interview to journalists George Knapp and UFO experts Jeremy Corbell, revealing a plethora of details about his work on the UFO/UAP topic.
Jay Stratton is the only person from the US federal government to have worked on all of the modern unidentified anomalous phenomenon (UAP) programs and is the highest-ranking figure directly involved to speak out, having held a rank comparable to a two-star admiral.
In an interview aired on YoiuTube, he spoke out about his involvement in UAPTF, highlighting the importance of trust.
“We’re already 70 years behind the power curve for trust, right? Because everybody says the government’s lying to us and that the whole Blue Book thing and the whole Roswell thing killed trust.”
Stratton also spoke out on his approach to the UFO subject and said he always had kept an open mind and a skeptical mind. Stratton’s story and involvement in the phenomenon are important since his story led to the eventual formation of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force in 2017. However, during the interview, he explained that after his roles in the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications Program, the AAWSAP, and the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, the AATIP, he had no intentions of returning once again to the UAP topic.
The Governments Top UFO Hunter
This changed when the New York Times published the story about the Pentagon’s Secret UAP study following Lue Elizondo’s resignation from DoD. Providing some context on Stratton’s importance to the UAP issue to this day, George Knapp told the Liberation Times:
“Jay Stratton was the U.S. government’s top UFO hunter.
“He conducted the first in-depth investigation of the Tic Tac case, and is the only person in the entire government to work on all of the major UFO probes, including the DIA’s ambitious program (AAWSAP), its successor (AATIP), and then the UAP Task Force which he created, organized, and directed before it was formally authorized by Congress.
Stratton currently works with Radiance Technologies, where he is leading, directing, assisting, and developing efforts on existing contracts and the creation of new business areas related to Scientific and Technical Intelligence with a focus on reverse engineering.
