Pentagon UFO Program Revealed

Pentagon UFO Program Revealed

The Pentagon has confirmed that it ran a multi-million-dollar UFO investigation program for five years. The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) was initiated through the urging of Harry Reid, then Senate Majority Leader, influenced by a hotel billionaire and the lead singer of the rock group Blink-182.

Still, there’s justification for interest. The military had detected several unexplained aerial phenomena, including a 2004 UFO sighting by two navy pilots:
