'Dr. Kirkpatrick has many times lied to nan American group astir a deficiency of grounds concerning UFOs/UAPs,' according to Fine, referencing nan updated terminology for 'unidentified flying objects.' 

In caller years, Pentagon brass, NASA experts and others person taken to calling what were erstwhile known arsenic flying saucers 'unidentified anomalous phenomena' aliases UAP.

The petition's allegation that Dr. Kirkpatrick had assembled a concealed advisory sheet to tally AARO, while still unproven, first emerged that aforesaid time via reporting by Matt Ford, big of 'The Good Trouble Show' YouTube channel, who had cited an anonymous source.

But nan different caller accusations that Kirkpatrick has 'lied to nan American people,' person travel overmuch much directly. 

This Halloween, AARO hosted a convention telephone Q&A convention betwixt reporters and Dr. Kirkpatrick, successful which nan physicist fielded aggregate questions astir David Grusch and his allegations of a covert UFO clang retrieval and reverse engineering program.

The Mail's erstwhile intelligence official — who has friendly knowledge of nan military's ever-evolving UFO/UAP investigation portfolio — cautioned against drafting a nonstop statement betwixt these controversies and immoderate plans for Kirkpatrick's departure, however. 

'Sean has straight told folks he is leaving by nan extremity of nan year,' this erstwhile intelligence charismatic told nan DailyMail.com, nether nan information of anonymity. 

'I deliberation it's wholly a planned departure, he astir apt gave them a timeline erstwhile he took nan job,' according to this source, citing geographical accent connected Dr. Kirpatrick's family life. 

'I americium judge he's fresh to go. I wouldn't publication into it immoderate much than that, honestly.'

The root added that he has heard AARO's first and existent head would beryllium moving connected to a position with Oak Ridge National Laboratory — which concisely hosted nan kernel of an evident unit bio for Kirkpatrick earlier it mysteriously disappeared. 

Veteran Australian TV news broadcaster and investigative newsman Ross Coulthart, who conducted nan first televised question and reply pinch David Grusch, said that this unit bio 'requires explanation' successful a bid of posts to X (formerly Twitter).

'Dr. Kirkpatrick remains nan director, AARO,' Gough said. 'He is not presently employed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory'  

'We person nary AARO unit announcements to make astatine this time,' she added.

Outside charismatic channels, however, news of Kirkpatrick's planned departure person reached Daniel Sheehan, the Harvard-trained lawyer who represented past UFO whistleblower Luis Elizondo in his general title to nan DoD's Inspector General. 

'He's retired astatine nan extremity of nan twelvemonth — and that's a large deal,' Sheehan told nan DailyMail.com, adding that he understands 'four awesome candidates' are up for nan occupation opening astatine nan apical of AARO. 

When reached for comment, Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough stated that Dr. Kirkpatrick (pictured above) 'remains nan director, AARO' and is 'not presently employed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory'

Sheehan, whose history litigating progressive civilian authorities rule cases dates backmost to nan Vietnam War-era 'Pentagon Papers,' is now main counsel, president and co-founder of the New Paradigm Institute.

The institute, a branch of the 501(C)(3) nonprofit Romero Institute, describes itself arsenic dedicated to nationalist argumentation defense connected 'societal, environmental, and cosmic objectives,' which presumably includes UAP transparency.

Chris Mellon, a erstwhile charismatic pinch nan Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and a passionate advocator for accrued authorities diligence and transparency connected nan UAP issue, told nan DailyMail.com that he excessively heard of akin developments astatine AARO. 

'As to Sean, I've heard immoderate of nan aforesaid rumors,' Mellon wrote via email, 'but they're conscionable rumors, I really don't cognize his plans.'

Earlier this summer, anterior to Grusch's sworn Congressional testimony, Mellon told  NewsNation's Chris Cuomo, 'I've been told that we person recovered exertion that did not originate connected this Earth, by officials successful nan Department of Defense and by erstwhile intelligence officials.'

Sources pinch akin firsthand grounds to give, person go moreover much skittish astir delivering what they cognize to AARO, contempt nan office's caller 'second phase' efforts to faithfully analyse hidden UFO clang retrieval programs.

'This shape of nan reporting system is for existent aliases erstwhile US authorities employees, work members, aliases contractors pinch nonstop knowledge of alleged US authorities programs aliases activities related to UAP making love backmost to 1945,' Kirkpatrick told reporters this Halloween.

But pinch nan early of AARO's activity successful limbo, Sheehan told nan DailyMail.com that galore trepidatious UFO whistleblowers person opted to present their grounds to nan US Senate Select Committee connected Intelligence, for now, instead.

'That's wherever nan queue is forming of group who person existent nonstop contiguous knowledge — and Dave Grusch is successful connection pinch these people, and our group are successful connection pinch these people.' 

'We cognize that they don't want to spell into into Sean's AARO group until it's resolved arsenic to who is going to return his place,' Sheehan emphasized.

The erstwhile intelligence official, who confirmed connection of Dr. Kirkpatrick's departure, weighed successful pinch nan sentiment that 'the nationalist push backmost from Dave [Grusch] was astir apt unexpected.'

Despite a agelong summertime of contradictory timelines elaborate by some Grusch and Dr. Kirkpatrick, successful different words, nan charismatic suspects that AARO apt did not expect to person its head called a liar successful public.

Among different inconsistencies, Grusch testified nether oath earlier Congress this July that his past individual relationship pinch Dr. Kirkpatrick occurred successful 2022.

'Him and I had a classified speech successful April 2022 earlier he took complete AARO successful July 2022,' Grusch told Florida Congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna, nether oath during nan hearing.

'And it was not connected this topic,' he added.

When faced pinch these and different discrepancies, nan ex-intelligence charismatic told nan DailyMail.com, 'I judge Dave.'
