For the last five years Pentagon workers has continued to investigate UFO reports brought to them by military officials while working their primary duties, the newspaper reported.

In 2007, former senator Harry Reid-along with former senators Ted Stevens and Daniel Inouye-used "so-called black money" to secretly fund a program inside the Defense Department to study and investigate reports of UFOs, particularly from U.S. military personnel.

The financing for the most part went to Bigelow Aerospace, a Las Vegas-based organization keep running by very rich person Robert Bigelow, a long-lasting companion of Reid's.

POLITCO reports that the AATIP program "marked the 21st century effort to replicate some of the decades of inconclusive research undertaken by the Pentagon in the 1950s and 1960s to try to explain thousands of reported sightings unidentified flying objects, or UFOs by military and civilian pilots".

The Defense Department says the program shut down in 2012, although Elizondo told The Times the only thing that ended in 2012 was ended was government's funding of the program.

"Internationally, we are the most backward country in the world on this issue".

One of the sightings investigated had been captured on videotape, released in August, showing a white oval object the size of a commercial plane as it was chased by a pair of Navy fighter jets off of San Diego in 2004, the Times said. Experts also spoke to military service members who said they had seen unusual flying objects.

Reid confirmed the existence of the program, as did Pentagon officials, though the latter claim that the program ended in 2012.

Another incident involved a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet following some kind of aircraft that emitted a "glowing aura traveling at high speed and rotating as it moves".

The Pentagon has sound and video of two exceptionally befuddled pilots gazing intently at a unidentified flying article that pivoted and kept up a "shining atmosphere", as a major aspect of a mystery program that explored the presence of UFOs for a long time at the command of a previous major Democratic pioneer. Stevens and Inouye have both passed away.

"I'm not humiliated or embarrassed or sorry I got this thing going", Reid revealed to The Times.
