The UFO world is feeling vindicated after a weekend New York Times article talking about space ships.  This after news of a completely classified “Black Project” was released to the public that from 2007 to 2012, the U.S. Government spent $22-million looking into unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.  Led by former Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the ‘Top Secret’ program was to figure out what’s going on in the skies above with the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program.
According to the Times, the Program was launched after Reid met with longtime friend and former Skinwalker Ranch owner-billionaire Robert Bigelow. Bigelow is a big believer in the UFO phenomenon and aliens.  In one of the videos released was footage of a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet from the USS Nimitz, surrounded by a glowing object of unknown origin traveling at a high rate of speed in a location that officials declined to identify, back in 2004.
The Pentagon says the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in 2012. But according to the Times, certain aspects of the program still exist with officials from the program continuing to investigate encounters brought to them by service members, while these officials still carry out their other duties within the Defense Department.
The Program was also supported by the late Sens. Ted Stevens of Alaska, Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, and John Glenn of Ohio, the former Astronaut, who told Reid the federal government should take a serious look at UFOs.
