Recently in a New York Times article, the Department of Defense revealed that back in 2007, $22 million out their $600 billion was spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program initially funded at the request of U.S. Senator Harry Reid. It was hidden within Pentagon bureaucracy and that how they wanted it.
According to the DoD they have been investigating reports of unidentified objects for years deep within the Pentegon’s maze. The funding for this program ended in 2012.
There was an incident that took place back in November of 2004.
The incident involved two Navy pilots of a pair of F/A-18 Super Hornets from the USS Nimitz on a routine training mission 100 miles out in the Pacific.
They were contacted by the operations officer of the Navy cruiser USS Princeton. They asked the flight if they were carrying weapons.
One of the pilots replied that they were carrying dummy missiles. They were on a training mission off the coast of San Diego that afternoon and weren’t expecting any hostile actions.
The incident which occurred that day was supposedly made public by a Pentagon group that investigated UFOs.
The Princeton had been tracking the object for two weeks. The objects appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up.
The operator on the Princeton instructed the pilots and the two fighters headed towards the object.
But when they arrived at a “merged plot,” a naval term for being so close, that all the crafts seemed to merge together on the radar, the pilots couldn’t see anything visually at first. There was nothing on radar either.
