Harry Reid Started Pentagon Program to Look for Aliens. [VIDEO]

Former Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) wants to protect the United States from . . . wait for it. . . aliens from outer space.

Both the New York Times and Politico just revealed on Saturday that Reid launched a program in 2007 to investigate Unidentified Flying Objects. You know, UFOs. Or Little Green Men, or ‘Greys,’ or whatever.

Called the “Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program,” it wasn’t an official secret, yet only a few people knew about it. These included Reid and the late Senators Daniel Inouye (D-HI) and Ted Stevens (R-AK).

So what did they investigate? Supposedly stuff like this 2004 encounter Navy pilots had with UFOs near San Diego, which the NYT released with their report. The two pilots were flying F-18 Hornets at the time.

However, this particular incident was never investigated. In fact, there were no confirmed sightings of alien spaceships found by the program, and the Pentagon killed the project in 2012.

So why did Reid start this program to begin with, which wasted $22 million of taxpayer money?

Well, to hear Reid spin it, it was because “the truth is out there. Seriously,” he tweeted on Saturday after the reports came out. He even added a spaceship emoji to show that he believes. Moreover, he said this is about “national security.” I don’t know about you, but I’m a lot more concerned about North Korea, not aliens.

Sorry, Harry, but you’re no David Duchovny, aka ‘Fox Mulder,’ on The X-Files — or any other kind of ‘fox,’ for that matter.

However, we do know that Harry Reid is one of the sneakiest weasels to ever walk the floor of the US Senate. And if you think his ‘concern’ about aliens had some cunning plan behind it, you’d be right.

It turns out that Reid’s friend Bob Bigelow, who owns an aerospace company and founded a hotel chain, is a UFO believer. In fact, he thinks extraterrestrials regularly visit Earth. Bigelow also bought Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, a place rife with UFO sightings.

Moreover, Bigelow was also a big donor to Harry Reid’s re-election campaigns, donating at least $10K between 1998 and 2008. So Harry thought he’d return the favor and voilà! — Reid used an earmark to start the UFO program.

Are you surprised? I’m not. After all, Harry Reid is the same crapweasel who lied about Mitt Romney in 2012, saying that he hadn’t paid taxes for 10 years. And he wasn’t sorry, either. “They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win did he?” he said in an interview. The guy has no sense of shame, does he?

But on the other hand, maybe Harry Reid was onto something after all. Maybe it wasn’t the Russians who tried to interfere with the 2016 election. Maybe it was . . . Them. As Reid said, “the truth is out there.” Cue the X-Files theme. Fox Mulder, call your office.

    Even UFO enthusiasts have been admitting that the evidence for UFOs is unconvincing; they’ve been looking for over 60 years, and all they have is unidentifiable pictures and hoaxes, not a single incontrovertible extraterrestrial artifact. I mean, a single Alpha Centaurian equivalent of a 1/4-20 bolt would be all it would take, but there’s not even that. As for defending against alien invasion, if aliens had the technology to get here and were hostile, we would be toast, because we couldn’t get to them while they could drop asteroids on us. It’s silly, really, and an utter waste of our money (it’s NOT your money, Senator).

    Well….. hmmm…. The video in the article at Hotair looks like it could be an actual image through a HUD of something, but the one included here from YouTube is clearly bogus. Someone shopped in an image right in the middle of a video of an aircraft in a level turn at 25K feet. Notice how the image doesn’t move at all relative to the center of the HUD. Do we know if the Hotair story is actually valid?

      My husband made the same observations; however, this is the same video the Department of Defense gave to the New York Times.

    I am certain Harry could find thousands of aliens in Nevada.

  • George V says:

    OK, I can’t let this go, even in today’s very charged political environment. I cannot be the only one who thinks “UFOs” seen at a place called “Skinwalker Ranch” might just be airplanes flown by voyeurs who own low-light cameras?

    O.K., Senator Reid was probably just trying to get a little more ‘pork’ into his district.

    But consider – we have been broadcasting radio signals for the last 90 years. Assume some of those signals have been intercepted by another intelligent species. What would be their response?

    (1) We hear them, but we can’t get to them, so let’s ignore it.

    (2) We hear them, and they are an intelligent species, and they could be a threat to us, so let’s go wipe them out before they discover inter-stellar flight.

    (3) We hear them, and it’s great. Kumbaya. They will join the League of Intelligent Planets.

    (4) They sound tasty. Let’s go eat them.

    Remember what happens when a superior technology meets an inferior technology. Example – When European sailing ships and gun powder met North American stone age culture.

    Maybe Stephen Hawking was right. Don’t contact these beings.
