No 'credible' information re: UFOs or ETs: White House

Michael Santo's picture

The White House has responded to a pair of online petitions regarding the existence of UFOs and / or a cover-up, saying that Fox Mulder wanna-be's needn't apply.

Phil Larson from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy responded as follows on the website: "The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye."

This hasn't been a good week for those submitting petitions to the We The People project, which is where these petitions were logged. Earlier in the week, the White House issued a negative response to a number of petitions asking for the legalization of marijuana.

The We The People project allows anyone to submit a petition. A petition must meet certain criteria to be responded to, or even found. "To cross the first threshold and be searchable within, a petition must reach 150 signatures within 30 days. To cross the second threshold and require a response, a petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days." Originally, the second threshold had been set at 5,000.

There were two petitions logged. One, which was signed by 5,387 people, asked for the government to disclose any knowledge of or communication with extraterrestrial beings. The second, logged by Paradigm Research Group (PRG) and signed by 12,078 requested a formal acknowledgement from the White House that extraterrestrials have been interacting with the human race.

PRG said that the response by a "low-level staffer" (Larson was reportedly a research assistant) was unacceptable and that the organization will address the White House response on Monday, November 7 with an international press release and op-ed submissions to various newspapers. It also said that it would begin a new petition campaign.

They said:

The White House has responded to the Disclosure Petition. The final signature count was 12,078. As expected it was written by a low level staffer from the Office of Science and Technology Policy - research assistant Phil Larson. The response was unacceptable. The response page (link) includes a Feedback option. Much feedback is likely.

In a short while PRG will begin to pre-promote a new petition relevant to the Disclosure process. This petition will then be submitted to We the People and an effort will be made to garnish the 25,000 signatures in 30 days (the new threshold) required for another formal response. Those who have signed previously will not have to register again to sign the next petition.

Naturally, the White House said it would respond to these petitions. It never said it would respond in what the petitioner might find a "satisfactory manner." It certainly never said it would respond in a manner Fox Mulder or Dana Scully would agree with.

You have to look at the wording carefully, they don't see a "sign" of a cover up, simply because "they" don't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I"m sure there are many secret government programs that the president doesn't know exist and if asked about them they would say there is no "sign". Also, how much research did they do? How deep did they look, who did they ask? Anyway it's politician speak. The Air Force already admitted that SOME UFOs might be of extraterrestrial origin: Do a google search for "google news archives by date" click on the link named "News archive search - google news" type in "air force orders saucers merry" - Read the first link Back in 1952 a shoot down order was given to shoot down saucers over the white house: Do a google search for "shoot down saucers" click on the first link Anti aircraft guns placed around LAX in 1952 to "shoot down" saucers: Do a google search for "shoot down la times 1952" click on the first link. The air force and the White House considered (and probably still considers) saucers to be real enough to warrant a shoot down order in 1952. Given that a shoot down order was given, chances are they were not secret US weapons, also intelligence and radar indicated that it wasn't Russian, they where spotted on radar and spotted visually at the same time as people reported them so they aren't hoaxes or weather phenomena. The performance of these solid objects were so beyond what we had that the pilots couldn't get close, so what really is left to explain these encounters? It appears to me that the people who panic the most about UFOs aren't the general public (even though the media tries to make it seem that way) rather it seems as if the governing elite are the ones who panic the most.
