The erstwhile Stephen Bassett of the Paradigm Research Group recently posted a petition on the White Houses new petitioning website, calling for the President Barack Obama to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. You can read a description of the petition at the Open Minds website; it’s nicely done.
Personally, I’m ambivalent about the request.
On the one hand, it’s worth proposing. As I have said many times, if the government actually knows of an intelligent ET presence, and if there is evidence to that effect, the public should at least know that much. The government can reserve information relevant to national security, but the public should at least know that much, and can handle it.
On the flip side, the present administration would only reveal any actual information if if served its larger left-wing anti-colonialist, throw-our-economy-into-the-crapper agenda. The Obama administration has shown that it is anything but transparent. Like other administrations before it, it is deeply, disturbingly corrupt.1
But it’s a nice thought.
- This is easy to establish for those who don’t get their news from TV talking heads. Here’s a sampling of my 100+ archived journalistic pieces on this topic:

Counter to its claims, the White House received emails about the administration’s own ATF-led gun-running operation to Mexico. ↩

You dishonour yourself and your readers by parroting fabulists such as Dinesh D’Souza.
The anti-colonialist part is from Obama’s biography, Dreams from my Father. He is what he is.
At least he’s been honest, though people don’t like it.
The economic crapper part is from reality (more debt during his administration than all US presidents since George Washington to GW Bush, COMBINED). It’s just reality.
The White House responded; of course, they deny any knowledge whatsoever on the matter. http://io9.com/5856768/no-alien-visits-or-ufo-cover+ups-white-house-says
yep; saw this today – but I like your link better, so thanks for it!
