What's Up with Hillary and UFOs?
During the Clinton family seven-day vacation in August 1995 at the Rockefeller Teton Ranch outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the 85-year-old billionaire privately briefed the President and First Lady on UFOs and his hopes.
No one else knows exactly what was said, but at the time Mr Clinton, who had a personal interest in UFOs and was frustrated at the lack of information he could glean on it, was carrying out a review of how the Government handled confidential material.
Mrs Clinton was snapped later the same day walking through the ranch grounds deep in conversation with Rockefeller, clutching a copy of a book by Paul Davies called Are We Alone: Philosophical Implications of the Discovery of Extra-terrestrial Life.
Due to the persistence of researcher Grant Cameron, who used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain as much information about the initiative, before sharing it with the Paradigm group, we know the venture continued for just over another year.
A series of letters and memos between Rockefeller, co-campaigners, Dr Gibbons and other officials revealed the extent of discussions.
The documents also name both Clintons as being directly involved in the initiative after the meeting.(snip)
But Mr Bassett said Clinton's team has continued to "dance around the extra-terrestrial issue," citing these examples:
•Twenty-two months after Bill Clinton left office Mr Podesta called for the release of all UFO files to the public on October 22, 2002 at the National Press Club and did the same there a year later
•In March 2004 Clinton team member former Congressman Bill Richardson challenged the Air Force explanation for the Roswell in the foreword of the book, Roswell Dig Diaries, a Sci-Fi Channel publication
•In 2010 Mr Podesta restated his desire for disclosure in a foreword to the book UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record by Leslie Kean
•In February 2015 Mr Podesta tweeted: "My biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files."
•On September 29, 2015 Mr Podesta tweeted about a reporter's interview with Mrs Clinton, saying: "Ask her about aliens next time! #thetruthisoutthere."
It is quite curious that this would come up on the campaign trail, as it doesn't really seem to help Hillary (who lately is fighting back a strong primary challenge from Bernie Sanders).
Is this supposed interest in UFOs some kind of threat from the Clinton team, or a game of some kind?
