Black Money

It’s been just over a year since the U.S. Defense Department officially declassified two videos that showed an encounter between two Navy F/A-18F fighter jets and an unidentified flying object (UFO).

Now, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) — a longtime proponent of UFO research — is calling on Congress to review reports like the Navy encounter, which the Defense Department has collected for years as part of a program dubbed “Black Money.”

“I personally don’t know if there exist little green men,” Reid told KNPR. “I kind of doubt that, but I do believe the information we have indicates we should do a lot more study.”

Alien Stigma

The interview took place, Reid said, just before a scheduled call with a Senator to discuss ways for Congress to listen to the Black Money reports.

But also to take them seriously. “What we found in the past is that these pilots, when they see something strange like this, they’re prone not to report it for fear that the bosses will think something’s wrong with them, and they don’t get the promotion,” Reid told KNPR. “So, many, many times they don’t say a word to anybody about these strange things.”

After all, one of the biggest reasons these sightings never actually surfaced or reported by service members is the stigma surrounding the subject of aliens and UFOs.

Reid may have retired back in 2017, but he still has powerful connections inside Congress. Service members deserve, he believes, to have their voices heard.

“Frankly, I think the federal government has done almost nothing to help us with this,” Reid said.
