White House ends silence on UFOs and ETs with rejection of PRG Disclosure Petition

Yet FOIA request by Canadian researcher prompts question – Did the White House investigate the UFO Extraterrestrial matter during the Clinton administration?



White House Rejects ET Petition

Toronto [ZNN] The White House has broken a 64 year old silence on the UFO/ET matter by publicly and summarily dismissing the Paradigm Research Group Disclosure Petition I – stating there is no credible evidence of an ET presence engaging the planet.

It is important to note 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 waiting  for 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 supporting this reality.

The White House Statement

Office of Science and Technology Policy

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 has filed Disclosure Petition II 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.

Did the White House ever examine UFO/ETI information before?

Letters uncovered in a FOIA request by Canadian researcher Grant Cameron show that 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 are now in the public domain but remain un-investigated by the press.

THE PRINCIPALS: In The Rockefeller Initiative

Rockefeller                   Gibbons              Clinton

In examining these correspondence, ZlandCommunications has learned that one letter from Mr. Rockefeiller to President Bill Clinton indicated Mr. Rockefeller had somehow been made aware that substantial information on UFOs and ETI had been ‘unnecessarily withheld from the public’.

The letter, from Mr. Rockefeller to President Clinton is entitled: ‘Lifting the Secrecy on Information About Extraterrestrial Intelligence as part of the Current Classification Review.’

Laurance S. Rockefeller Letter to President Clinton

[Ed. Note: Speculation around how Rockefeller knew information was being withheld is uncertain – however it would not be the first time international or domestic sources of insider information among influential families have been pried loose.]

ZNN has also learned from another letter by Laurance S. Rockefeller to the Science Advisor to President Clinton, Dr. Jack Gibbons 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.

Surprisingly in his statement of  ‘no evidence’, Mr. Larson avoided any mention of White House or OSTP information about UFO or extraterrestrial intelligence disclosure efforts in previous administrations; nor has any of this information ever been made available to the press by the White House.

Despite Mr. Larson’s statement that, no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.”, some research analysts remain convinced these correspondences were purposefully sequestered until Mr. Cameron’s FOIA request brought them to light.

Toronto Radio Interview

During an interview on Toronto’s AM 740 Radio on Sunday Nov 27, PRG Executive Director Stephen G. Bassett, indicated the position of  ‘no credible evidence’ taken by the OSTP is not only fallacious but indefensible.

Mr. Bassett and other researchers in the the UFO/ET Disclosure movement point to a massive compendium of other government documents, witness testimony and admissions as well as notarized documents by former high ranking military officials clearly indicating that the UFO/ET phenomenon has been discussed, analyzed, assessed and sequestered at the highest levels of governance and military authority on the planet.

In its own search, ZlandCommunications has discovered that in addition to the Rockefeller letters, other relevant documents and notarized military witness testimony supporting the existence of UFOs and an ET presence are readily available to the press, the public and all government officials. (Notarized Sample1 - 12 Sample Documents - CIA and Congress)

According to Mr. Bassett, the UFO/ET research community remains adamant that this credible information and former military officers’ witness testimony is more than adequate to call an immediate Congressional Hearing.

The question remains – Why has the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) not done its due diligence in acquiring these documents and testimony, examining them and moving forward with an investigation?

Disclosure Petition II

In response to the OSTP’s rejection of Disclosure Petition I , PRG has filed a second petition exhorting the White House to look into its own records – those of the Clinton administration which clearly show the White House and the OSTP did indeed engage in discussions and correspondence about  the extraterrestrial matter with philanthropist Laurance S. Rockefeller beginning in 1993.

Disclosure Petition II states:

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

The petition 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 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.”

Is the White House suppressing evidence?

As the result of Mr. Cameron’s confirmation that during the Clinton administration the White House and OSTP under Dr. Jack Gibbons were indeed in discussions with Laurance S. Rockefeller about the UFO/ET matter – and in combination with the refusal by White House and OSTP to acknowledge this information as evidence, four very disturbing possibilities emerge:

  • The OSTP’s response is yet another blueprint for the current 64 year-old UFO/ET cover-up,
  • The OSTP along with the White House are completely out of touch with their own intelligence networks, record keeping and infrastructure or,
  • The White House and the OSTP may be complicit in the suppression of evidence.
  • Why did President Clinton make the provocativ admission he wanted to know about UFO/ET matters before thousands in Ireland in 1995 directly in the midst of the Rockefeller Letter’s excahnge: Predsident Clinton in Ireland 1995

This last point raises serious judicial as well as constitutional questions.

Congressional Investigation now an imperative


It now appears that the Whie House and the current OSTP staff have placed themselves in the very awkward political position. The White House must not only admit the Clinton/Rockefeller letters exist, but it must also concede the Rockefeller Initiative correspondences do constitute 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.

[Ed. Note: John Podesta, President Clinton’s Chief of Staff at the time was clearly aware of this situation. So much so that later in 2002 he came forward at the National Press Club in Washington DC to challenge government secrecy on UFOs. He stated, “It is time to open the books… on the question of government investigation of UFOs.” Click here.]

This evidence, in the opinion of many researchers, eliminates any reasonable doubt that the US government had and still maintains a policy of secrecy and denial regarding information about the UFO/ET issue. The continued refusal by the White House to discuss the matter openly or to volunteer any information to the press or the public is yet another indication of a cover-up.

On this basis alone – a public investigation into Rockefeller Initiative letters and Clinton’s role appears not only mandatory but a judicial and congressional imperative.

Conclusion – Journalists must act

One can only conclude that, if allowed to go unscrutinized by the press, the continued White House policy of denial and silence and the long-proclaimed call for transparency by the Obama administration will be seen for what is it – nothing more than a disingenuous facade.

In the fractious and hyper-frenetic election campaign towards the Presidency, it seems fair to ask – If the Obama administration remains unchallenged by the press on this matter, will the administration ever allow any open discussion about White House involvement with Mr. Rockefeller and the extraterrestrial issue? adding additional gravitas to the suppression of evidence rivaled only by the Nixon administration between 1972 and 1974.

In the event PRG’s Disclosure Petition II reaches the mandatory 25,000 signatures by month’s end, the White House will have to put its mouth where its mandate is… investigate according to the mandate of the “We the People” petition process; placing a large spotlight on the slowly crumbling wall of secrecy it orchestrated some 64 years ago. Will the press then close ranks to take on the White House?

Even without the success of PRG’s petition to examine the Rockefeller Initiative, it is clear the mainstream press has a fiduciary responsibility to bring this matter to forefront of news – forcing accountability onto the highest office in USA.

What are the chances? Some say ‘slim to none’ given the alarming and hermetically sealed power and influence of the White House and its intelligence infrastructure.

Others believe there really are journalists out there who have the capacity to create another Watergate – just when we need it most.

  • It is so clear for any intelligent observer to see that a very long-term campaign of control of the masses exists. In what would amount to an open letter of sorts I now wish to ask the ones seeking control just why we should be controlled at all? Why should we allow the control to persist? What is of such great value to the one(s) controlling that they should spend so much time and energy pursuing this agenda when clearly you have the means to pursue any diversion which fulfills you?

    I do not know who you are, nor is it likely that I ever will.I forgive you for any transgression committed against any other individual and I focus some of my personal energy and time on your wellness, the wellness of those you love and the hope that you will ultimately discover that your life and soul are better served not by controlling the likes of me, but by doing those things which bond you ever more strongly to the love of the one true eternal.

    Since you have more or less achieved your goal? What is left? If this level of control you know possess is not enough to sate you, I suggest no level will satisfy. If you still seek a worthy challenge, consider the challenge of controlling nothing but yourself. Thank you.

  • The denial of any knowledge of extraterrestrial presence of any kind by Mr. Larson is stunning in its complete rejection of even the slightest possibility. Since there is way more than enough documentary and physical (see Dr. R. Leir)evidence to warrant at least a serious investigation on the matter at this point, the casual observer is forced to conclude the President’s initiative on openness from the government is being fiercely obstructed by members of his own staff! In fact, a quick review of how compliant governmental agencies have been with the President’s directive to review and streamline classification procedures shows that few agencies appear to have any intention whatsoever about reducing the amount of information the government seeks to acquire and withhold from its citizenry.

    The idea of government by and for the government now would appear to be the present mindset. If panic and chaos was feared once upon a time if the powers that be ever opened Pandora’s box on the ETI issue, serious unrest, or worse, may now be sprouting roots at the idea of NOT informing the people.
    The very notion that the US government has the complete ability to keep the lid on this issue becomes more laughable by the week. The amount of information,in general is increasing so quickly that the ability to assess all of it, classify some of it and to “protect the national security interests” properly is beyond present capability.though many are trying their best. It almost seems as though the government is working very hard to trash what little faith might remain, but for what reason, this is not known.
    Poor Mr. Larson. The harder he slams the door, the bigger the hole will be left when it is finally pried open. Surely he could never have thought that such a response would silence the matter, could he? There can be no greater signal to the public that something is very wrong here than this simple act.
