United States Senator who helped obtain funding for the government's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program that investigated reports of UFOs.
Growing up in Nevada, Harry Reid recalled many enamored nights looking up at the massive sky. He served in the role of United States senator from 1987 to 2017. Beginning in 2007, Senator Reid worked with other representatives to get funding for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification program. This secret program investigated UFO sightings.
Originally, he did not know how many reports from the military to expect, but he was astounded to find out that there were hundreds of them. Reid was not ready to say that extraterrestrials are real, but he believed in following wherever the science and data led. He believed that it is important to national security to adequate investigate the phenomenon.
"UFOs fascinate people who are pilots, physicists, because they can't understand how these UFOS have no vapor trail, no lights on them, yet they can go so fast, so quickly," reports Reid. "What have I personally learned from official investigations into unidentified aerial phenomena so far? The truth, disappointing as it may be, is that there's still a great deal we don't understand. It's unclear whether the U.F.O.s we have encountered could have been built by foreign adversaries, whether our pilots' visual perception during some encounters was somehow distorted, or whether we truly have credible evidence of extraterrestrial visitations. There may be other, as yet unknown explanations for some of these strange sightings."
