White House Ends Silence on UFOs and ETs with Rejection of PRG Disclosure Petition l - But Petition ll is Filed Seeking Examination of the Rockefeller Initiative

Share Article

The White House has inaugurated the "We the People" petition process whereby citizens can submit petitions to the government. ZlandCommunications has obtained details that Stephen G. Bassett, Executive Director of The Paradigm Research Group in Washington DC submitted a petition calling upon the government to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence, but it was rejected on the basis of a lack of evidence. However letters obtained under the Freedom of Information Act tell a very different story about how White House officials discussed UFOs and Extraterrestrial Intelligence secrecy as far back as 1993.

Dear Mr. President, “It is widely believed that various agencies of the federal government have substantial information concerning UFOs..."

ZlandCommunications has learned that the White House has broken a 64 year old silence on the UFO/ET matter by publicly rejecting the Paradigm Research Group Disclosure Petition l – stating there is no credible evidence of an Extraterrestrial presence engaging the planet.

It is important to recognize that this is the first time the White House has made any formal statement on the UFO/ET issue. This precedent is what many UFO/ET enthusiasts have been awaiting for decades.

More importantly, by responding formally, many UFO analysts feel the White House has not simply recognized that over 17,000 individuals signed petitions demanding action to acknowledge the UFO/ET issue but the Obama administration has now opened the door to a wider public discourse on the reality of the UFO phenomenon and the mountain of evidence that seems to widely support this reality.

In a statement by Phil Larson of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) he said in part, “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.”

In response PRG Executive Director Stephen G. Bassett filed Disclosure Petition ll now demanding that the Obama administration investigate UFO Disclosure efforts during the Clinton administration between the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and billionaire and Clinton friend, Laurance S. Rockefeller.

Letters obtained from an FOIA request by Canadian researcher Grant Cameron of the Presidents UFO Web Site show that then White House Science Advisor to the President, Dr. Jack Gibbons discussed the UFO extraterrestrial issue as far back as 1993 with billionaire philanthropist Laurance S. Rockefeller, his solicitor Henry Diamond and other White House officials. These correspondences, known as the Rockefeller Initiative, are now in the public domain.

One specific letter from Mr. Rockefeller to President Clinton entitled: ‘Lifting the Secrecy on Information About Extraterrestrial Intelligence as part of the Current Classification Review’ indicates Mr. Rockefeller had somehow been made aware that substantial information on UFOs and ETI had been ‘unnecessarily withheld from the public’.

In the letter Mr. Rockefeller states, “It is widely believed that various agencies of the federal government have substantial information concerning the existence or non-existence of UFOs and it is being unnecessarily withheld from the public as classified.”

ZNN has also learned from another letter by Laurance S. Rockefeller to the Science Advisor to President Clinton, Dr. Jack Gibbons dated April 12, 1993 that:

  • At least one meeting was convened to discuss UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence.
  • From that meeting Laurance Rockefeller learned Dr. Gibbons had not been advised of a ‘body of knowledge on UFOs and ETI… is being withheld from the public’.
  • According to Dr. Gibbons, it would be ‘most fruitful’ for Rockefeller to seek out UFO/ETI information from the Department of Defense and,
  • A letter from Laurance S. Rockefeller to President Clinton was crafted to request the President re-assess government policy on UFO/ETI information.

Disclosure Petition ll
These and some 50 other letters within the Rockefeller Initiative have prompted Stephen Bassett to submit a second petition, Disclosure Petition ll, calling upon the White House to investigate evidence that extraterrestrial intelligence disclosure efforts did indeed occur during the Clinton administration; contrary to Mr. Larson’s contention that no credible information exists.

Petition ll states: “We petition the Obama Administration to demand a full congressional investigation of UFO/ET Disclosure efforts by the Clinton OSTP – the Rockefeller Initiative.”

In the petition Mr. Bassett goes on to say: “In response to the Disclosure Petition I, the OSTP stated, ‘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.’ If [this is] true, what was the OSTP investigating from March 1993 to October 1996 in concert with billionaire and Clinton friend, Laurance Rockefeller? Those who knew of and have not spoken publicly of this initiative include: Bill Clinton, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Obama transition co-chair John Podesta, Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta, Dr. John Gibbons, Albert Gore and Governor Bill Richardson.”

During an interview on Toronto’s AM 740 Radio on Sunday Nov 27, Stephen G. Bassett indicated the ‘no credible evidence’ position taken by the OSTP is not only false but indefensible. During the interview Mr. Bassett also indicated how, in October of 2002 at the National Press Club in Washington DC, John Podesta President Clinton's Chief of Staff openly challenged the U.S. government on its UFO secrecy policy.

In his statement at the Washington National Press before members of the press Mr. Podesta said, "It is time to open the books... on the question of government investigation of UFOs." Watch the video of Podesta's entire press conference statement: http://www.barackobamaufo.com/?page_id=24

This evidence, in the opinion of many researchers, seems irrefutable. It appears to eliminate any reasonable doubt that the US government had and still maintains a policy of secrecy and denial regarding information about the UFO/ET issue.

According to Mr. Bassett the White House is now in a position where it must not only admit the Clinton/Rockefeller letters do exist, but it must also concede the Rockefeller Initiative constitutes proof that multiple members of the Clinton administration White House staff and the Office of Science and Technology Policy were involved in discussions concerning UFOs and extraterrestrials. On this basis alone he believes a public investigation into the Rockefeller Initiative letters and Clinton’s role appears not only mandatory but a judicial and congressional imperative.

One big hurdle remains. Twenty five thousand signatures are required by December 31, 2011 to obtain a formal White House response.

Two critical questions remain:
1.    Why has the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) not done its due diligence to acquire these documents and testimony; examine them and move forward with an investigation?

2.    Irrespective of obtaining the 25,000 signatures necessary to qualify for a formal White House response – will the mainstream press across America and internationally begin asking the tough questions of the U.S. government about its role in maintaining high levels of secrecy and silence on the UFO/ETI matter?

In an interview with ZlandCommunications an unnamed spokesperson from one UFO investigative group said, “This is the closest we have ever gotten to insider information deep within the White House. We can only wait to see if the mainstream press has the journalistic courage to break this news. If there is anything that can be described as the ‘smoking gun’ with regard to the UFO/ETI issue – this could be it.”
