Harry Reid just confirmed in a new documentary that aliens are totally out there, man. The former Senate majority leader doesn’t hold back in director James Fox’s new film The Phenomenon, accusing the U.S. government of hiding its UFO research from the public. “Most of it hasn’t seen the light of day,” Reid said. “Why the federal government all these years has covered up… I think it’s very bad for our country.”

It’s not surprising that the government would keep highly sensitive information a secret. As Luis Elizondo, the director of government programs with To The Stars Academy (and a former CIA operations officer), told me in May, “When you have something that can fly unimpeded into U.S.-controlled airspace and can perform in ways that certainly outperforms anything conventional we have, that’s alarming. You don’t necessarily want to broadcast that something has this capability.”
