Harry Reid Confirms Federal Government Covered Up UFOs For Years
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) Confirmed that the US government has been hiding important details about UFOs for years.
"I think it is very, very bad for our country why the federal government has hushed up all these years, brake pads and stopped everything," said Reid in the new documentary "The Phenomenon" by director James Fox.
"Are you saying that there is some evidence that has not yet seen the light of day?" asked Fox.
"I say most of it didn't see the light of day," Reid replied.
The film explores the history of UFO sightings in the U.S. and abroad, including new details on the military-confirmed offshore encounters that involved U.S. Navy pilots. It also details a 1967 report in which an object appeared over a US missile base while 10 of the missiles were out of service.
"If the president had asked them to start, they couldn't have done it," Reid said in the film.
Reid, who was one of the lawmakers behind a secret but since closed U.S. government UFO program, has increasingly advocated these phenomena since leaving office. However, he stopped confirming evidence of otherworldly activity and wrote on Twitter in August that he wanted to investigate the subject and that "we have to stick to science, not fairy tales about little green men."
He stuck to this point of view in the new film.
"Nobody has to agree why it is there. But should we at least spend some money investigating all of these phenomena?" He asked. "The answer is yes. '"
Former HuffPost reporter and UFO expert Lee Speigel co-wrote and co-produced the film, which took seven years to make.
"Whether you are a UFO believer, or a debunker who is in between or undecided, it is important to present accurate information that may affect the national security of all nations and the security of all citizens of our planet," said Mirror.
"The Phenomenon" is currently available through VOD.
