Harry Reid talks UFOs in sit-down interview w/Knapp, Oct 31, 2019.
>Clickbait IMO, YMMV.
...The ball started rolling in 2007. Reid and fellow Senators Daniel Inouye and Ted Stevens authorized a black budget study of UFOs. The acronym for the program was Aerospace Weapons System Application Program, or AAWSAP. In 2008, a contract was awarded to Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies, or BAASS, an offshoot of Bigelow Aerospace...
Reid encouraged by newfound interest in UFOs, Nov 1, 2019.

...The UFO study that Reid initiated was largely carried out by a Nevada contractor, Bigelow Aerospace. After the contract ended, a scaled down version of the program continued within the Pentagon called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, or AATIP. In a 2009 letter to the Department of Defense, Reid tried to move AATIP into a more classified special access status...“We have a fringe group of people out there who want to control this. The so-called conspiratorial folks,” Reid said. “They don’t want anybody that’s based on facts involved in this. So what do they do? They go online and try to belittle Elizondo and me and anybody else that is trying to do it in a scientific way"...Although the Pentagon says AATIP ended in 2012, Reid has been informed it is ongoing and with greater resources than it had before. The U.S. Navy’s announcement that it will encourage UFO encounter reports by pilots and others is a key development, Reid said. It’s an indicator the subject is no longer taboo or a career killer. The ongoing wave of media interest has even convinced Reid’s most formidable skeptic — Mrs. Reid.
