Tom Delonge has himself a new employee.


Luis Elizondo, former military intelligence official for the Pentagon, now works for the former Blink-182 member’s To The Stars Academy.

Bet his cover letter was OUT OF THIS WORLD.


From 2007-2012, Elizondo led the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, a secret government project dedicated to the exploration of the possible existence of UFOs. A new report from the New York Times revealed that millions of dollars were secretly given to the program until 2012, when government funding ceased.


According to Delonge, the Academy is a “powerful vehicle for change” that seeks to create “a consortium among science, aerospace and entertainment that will work collectively to allow gifted researchers the freedom to explore exotic science and technologies with the infrastructure and resources to rapidly transition them to products that can change the world.”


In addition to Elizondo, Delonge signs the paychecks for Harold E. Puthoff, a former CIA contractor, and Christopher K. Mellon, a former Defense Department official who was a deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence.


In 2004, To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science provided the Times with unclassified government footage “that can be rightfully designated as credible, authentic confirmation that unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) are real.” Watch it below.
