USA 'mysterious' UFO programme a actuality, has a $22 million finances

From 2008 through 2011, the Pentagon secretly spent US$22 million on a little-known program to research and investigate the threats posed by unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, The New York Times reported on Saturday.

Documents that have been recently declassified or acquired reveal that the Defense Department has spent at least $22 million on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which is meant to track and research unidentified flying objects.

It was initially funded at the request of former U.S. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), and much of the money spent on the program went to Robert Bigelow, the same Bigelow who is now working with NASA to create the expandable modules being tested on the ISS.

"I'm not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going", he said. "I've done something that no one has done before". Although defense officials claim the program was ended in 2012, it has recently received scrutiny due to Elizondo's recent resignation.

Beyond preparing for the next field of battle, or advancing a massive arsenal that includes nuclear weapons, the Pentagon has also researched the possible existence of UFOs. As the pilots attempted to chase the aircraft it turned toward to the jets only to take a position behind them in a few moments in what Mellon called "a series tumbling maneuvers that seem to defy the laws of physics".

Reid, who retired from Congress this year, told the Times he was proud of the program. "I've done something that no one has done before", he told the Times. "There's a whole fleet of them", one exclaims.

According to the Times, the program was run by a military official named Luis Elizondo deep in the bowels of the Pentagon.

The ministry said the USA jets left the region after another Russian jet, a Su-35C, arrived. However, the Russian defence ministry has denied the U.S. account.

Defense officials who had never confirmed that the program existed up until now, said it was shut down in 2012.

UFOs have piqued U.S.' military's curiosity for several decades now.

The US has repeatedly investigated UFOs.

James E. Oberg, a former NASA space shuttle engineer and an author known for debunking UFO sightings, also cast his doubts. "They are happy to lurk unrecognized in the noise, or even to stir it up as camouflage".

Those who question the government's version of the Roswell incident and admit a belief in aliens are often branded by critics as conspiracy theorists, but aerospace researchers like Bigelow and his supporters like Reid argue that there are legitimate justifications for spending government money and resources on investigating the unexplained phenomena.

Out of the huge chunk of money the USA spends on defence and security, a small amount is dedicated to a program to investigate reports of unidentified flying objects and alien life. Bigelow has famously stated in the past that aliens exist and that UFOs have visited Earth.

The program apparently began in 2007, and many parts of it are still classified. "But that was it, and that's how we wanted it".
