The retired Nevada Democrat believes that pilots can report sightings of UFOs without fear of ridicule. Reid, who spoke earlier about the secret $22 million UFO program of the Pentagon, remains committed to the idea that unidentified aerial phenomena should be treated more seriously.
“I honestly do not know if there exists little green men other places, I kind of doubt that, but I do believe that the information we have indicates we should do a lot more study, ” he said.
“We have thousands and thousands of people that have seen the same thing-something in the sky, it moves a certain way.”
Reid spoke during a KNPR interview on Thursday about his efforts to make it easier for military pilots and other soldiers to report UFO sightings without fear of ridicule or retribution.
“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,” he says.
“So, many, many times they don’t say a word to anybody about these strange things.”
“The facts are, they need a place to be able to report this, and that’s what I’m going to work on in a couple of hours, to make sure that somebody I think’s a powerful member in Congress, I want him to be able to sit down and talk to some of these pilots who have seen these things.”
“I can arrange this because of the contacts I have with members of the Congress.”
