Ufologist claims that the US Government acknowledged to be in possession of UFO remains

Virtually from the beginning of what has been called the “contemporary UFO age” in mid-1947, the people who collect and study the reports of sightings of unidentified flying objects have speculated about the alleged recovery of material and debris from them.

The most famous story linked to the eventual recovery of remains is the famous “Roswell incident,” when in early July, 1947, the manager of a ranch in New Mexico located at some distance from the town of Roswell, collected the debris of something that had fallen on the property, which could not be identified by him or by the military from the Roswell Air Base and which was initially classified as the remains of a “flying disc.” 

However, only hours later the US military claimed that the remains belonged to a meteorological balloon and, decades later, the authorities revealed that it had been a balloon from a secret project called Mogul.

Since then, and based on other cases, ufologists around the world have speculated that the US authorities would have in their possession the remains from crashed UFOs, and some have even gone further and said that several of the current technological breakthrough are a product of the secret study of these materials by private industry labs. 

However, at the end of February, 2021, American ufologist Anthony Bragalia lifted eyebrows by announcing that the Pentagon had admitted to be in possession of UFO remains and having disclosed the results of tests that they had performed on said material, in response to a request from Bragalia under of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). 


In late December, 2017, Bragalia submitted a FOIA request to the United States Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) requesting information on metal-like materials that were to be stored in warehouses in the Las Vegas, Nevada, area established there in connection with the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which operated from approximately 2007 to 2012.

In the document, Bragalia requested information of all kinds about the material, such as its physical description, its source or origin, the circumstances in which it had been obtained, the US Government agency responsible for safeguarding the material, the names of the authors of the reports and their respective titles, the names of the private contractors responsible for the storage and study of the material and the results obtained from the study of said remains.

After waiting for over three years and the insistence of an impatient Bragalia, the DIA replied that the search yielded five documents, with a total of 154 pages, that responded to his request.

The chief of Records Management and Information Services at the DIA, Steven Tumiski, who signed the response to Bragalia, wrote that he had decided to withhold some parts of the five documents mentioned to protect the identity and privacy of agency employees and to safeguard some information on the organizational structure of the DIA and its functions. 

According to Bragalia, several of the pages that he received along with the response to his FOIA request are “advanced technology reports” on Nitinol, a metallic alloy that has the property of recovering its shape after being folded and that could be integrated into the human body to strengthen health. 

The documents received by Bragalia also mention the potential use of some of the materials in “advanced aerospace platforms” and refer to desired characteristics that the materials have, such as being extremely light and strong. 

The eccentric “Tony” Bragalia 

Although Anthony “Tony” Bragalia is not such a publicly known ufologist, he’s been known for some years by people linked to ufology. 

Bragalia used to enter into heated discussions and debates on UFO scholar Rich Reynolds’ UFO Conjectures blog and in 2009 he began publishing articles in which he argues that the famous Socorro, New Mexico, UFO case (April, 1964) was a prank by university students, although he has not presented conclusive evidence in this regard.

At the same time, Bragalia, who has also researched the Roswell case, is convinced that what fell to earth in 1947 was an alien spacecraft and in 2015 he was involved in a huge fraud organized by Mexican journalist Jaime Maussan, who, in front of an audience of 6,500 people who paid for a ticket, presented at the National Auditorium of Mexico City a slide of what he said was the corpse of one of the “extraterrestrials” recovered at Roswell.

A few hours after the public disclosure of the “Roswell slide,” a group of scholars from different countries and organized through the Internet discovered that this slide actually depicted the mummified body of a Native American child that had been on display for years at the Chapin Mesa Archaeological Museum in Mesa Verde, Colorado. 

Although after the revelation of the origin of the slide Bragalia was the first one to distance himself from Maussan’s fraud and offer public apologies, he has always been characterized as a controversial character within ufology. Apparently he is not a friend of cameras, either, so it is difficult to find pictures of him on the Internet. 

In a recent interview, Spanish ufologist José Antonio Caravaca asked Bragalia, among other things, if he believed that in mid-2021 we will access more information about the unidentified aerial phenomena or about Roswell when the Pentagon issues a report requested by the US Congress.

“Definitely not. We all have to keep investigating and pursuing different angles of the truth about Roswell and not just rely on declassified official documents that only show us what they want us to see,” was the controversial scholar’s emphatic response. 

There are also doubts about what are the materials that the documentation received by Bragalia speaks of. While he maintains that these are UFO remains recovered and studied by the United States, his critics claim that they are actually derived from research on new weapons and new materials.
