The US has “scientific evidence” of unidentified flying objects thanks to the Pentagon’s secret UFO unit, the senator who set it up has said.
Harry Reid, a retired former Democratic Senator, succeeded in launching the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Programme (AATIP) in 2007 after requesting initial funding for the project.
The unit, which the Department of Defence (DoD) insists was terminated in 2012, produced documents that described sightings of aircraft that travelled at extremely high speeds with no visible signs of propulsion.
“If this movement took place in anything we now have available to us, it would kill everybody,”Mr Reid told Las Vegas news channel KLAS Channel 8, in reference to reported encounters with UFOs. They couldn’t withstand those g-forces. Something sitting there, ‘whoom’, down it goes.”
