The Ministry of defence to investigate secretly a program ten years ago to unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, at the urging of then-democratic Senate majority Leader Harry Reid, according to new reports.

Both The New York Times and the website Politico published stories Saturday revealed the existence of the Pentagon’s now-defunct Advanced air and space travel at the time of threat detection program.

The New York Times, said of the UFO program began in 2007, while Politico reported started in the year 2009.

According to the reports, Reid, a Nevada Democrat, helped, taxes, money from the program, a donor of the aerospace research company.

A Pentagon spokesman said, the UFO program ended in 2012, when The New York Times said the Ministry of defence is still examining the possible consequences of not identified flying objects.

The “Advanced Aviation threat identification program ended in the year 2012 time frame,” Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told Politico. “It was found that there are still other, higher-priority issues, you earned the promotion, and it was in the best interest of the DoD.”

White added: “The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets and our mission and takes measures if it developed of reliable data.”

Politically, said the program was not classified, but some officials knew it. Reid secured the funding for the program in 2009, with the help of former Hawaii Democratic Sen. Daniel Inouye, and former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, who both passed away in the meantime.

Both outlets, said Reid’s interest in UFOs is the result of a friend and donor Bob Bigelow, for whom Bigelow Aerospace was and said he was “absolutely convinced” aliens and UFOs have visited earth.

The New York Times said the program had a $22 million, the annual budget, and “most of the money” went to Kathryn Bigelow, the research company that hired the subcontractor and asked him, the research for the program.

“I’m not embarrassed or ashamed, or sorry, I have this thing now,” Reid told the newspaper. “I think it is one of the good things I have in my congressional service. I have done something nobody has done before.”

Both outlets, said the person who ran the program, Luis Elizondo, but resigned in October, complaining of a lack of interest of top officials.

“Why are we not spending more time and effort on this issue?” Elizondo wrote in a letter to the Minister of defense of Jim Mattis, according to the times.

According to Politico, a former employee said the effort created “tons of paperwork”, but otherwise of little value.

Reid was the only Democrat in Washington with an obvious fascination for UFOs. John Podesta, former Obama White House adviser and Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, is also known to have an interest in.

“Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere,” Podesta tweeted in the year 2015 on his last day in the White house.

Hacked E-Mails published online by WikiLeaks, during the 2016 presidential race Podesta showed exchanged E-Mails with NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who wanted a meeting with Obama about UFOs. Podesta’s assistant, said Mitchell, he wanted Obama to meet with.
