Group Calls For Obama To Release UFO Files

By Glenn Church | Related entries in Barack

A group of UFO enthusiasts has requested that Barack Obama release all files on UFO’s when he takes office. The Extraterrestrial Phenomenon Political Action Committee – yes, it does exist as “X-PPAC” – sent a letter requesting that Obama “end the six-decade truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.”

In the Telegraph:

The group wants the incoming president to insist on a “full briefing from your military services and intelligence agencies regarding what they know” and to open congressional hearings “to take testimony from scores of government witnesses who have already come forward with extraordinary evidence and are prepared to testify under oath.”

The campaigners, who want the truth “out there”, believe that the British Government’s decision to declassify thousands of UFO sighting documents this year has made it untenable for the US to maintain its policy of non-disclosure.

Apparently, X-PPAC thinks that they have a good chance of securing release of the documents. John Podestra, head of the Obama transition team and former Clinton Chief-of-Staff, headed a project to declassify 800 million pages of classified information.

In 2002, Podestra said, “It is time for the government to declassify records that are more than 25 years old and to provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon.”

Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico, wrote a forward to a book on Roswell and believes there has been a cover-up of some type. Richardson is set for a likely cabinet position.

Steven Bassett, Executive Director of X-PPAC, said:

“I think we are seeing the Democrats moving towards disclosure. John Podesta has outed himself as an enthusiast. He thinks the American public can handle the truth. Bill Richardson thinks there was a cover-up.”

Mr Bassett also believes that military and intelligence officials have studied the technology of alien spacecraft, material that would help the US develop new energy resources, as Mr Obama wishes, that will lessen US dependency on Middle Eastern oil.

Well, Obama is a trekkie after all. Beam the files up, Scotty.
