It was a great day for the country when far left Sen. Harry Reid (NV) decided to call it quits.
He was a terrible politician in every sense, constantly pushing liberal “values.”
Now, a new report confirms Reid had the Pentagon waste $22 million studying UFOs.
The Defense Department’s multi-billion dollar budget allocated millions of dollars to investigate unidentified objects witnesses moving through the air, as instructed by Congress, according to a new report.
The New York Times on Saturday reported that the Pentagon set up a program in 2007 to look into reports and claims related to so-called UFOs, or unidentified flying objects, and that it was initiated by retired Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.
The program remains largely classified, but Reid acknowledged its existence in an interview.
The Hill has more:
The program reportedly received about $22 million in defense funding, and part of the program is still considered classified.
Reid, who retired from Congress earlier this year, said he is proud that he started the program while serving in public office.
“I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going,” Reid told the Times.
“I think it’s one of the good things I did in my congressional service. I’ve done something that no one has done before,” he added.
Of course Reid isn’t ’embarrassed or ashamed.’
After all, he didn’t waste his own money.
Nope. He just wasted the taxpayers’ money!
