The truth is out there, and it seems that the man who is intent on revealing it has returned to the White House staff. Former chief of staff in the Clinton administration, John Podesta, has recently been appointed as President Obama's newest advisor, though his advice may prompt some rather interesting debates between himself and the President.
The return of Mr. Podesta, a major player in appears to be a smart move which will add intellectual weight to the Obama personnel, without displacing any existing staff, but Time Magazine recently listed five things that Podesta and Obama haven’t previously agreed on:
*The American Political System
It is the last item which is likely to keep the public's gaze fixed on Podesta, as his outspoken views on the subject of extra-terrestrials make him something of a wildcard on the White House staff. Podesta's stance on the subject of UFOs and alien life has become well-known; he has continually pressed the U.S. government to release any information they currently hold on the subject in order "provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon."
Back in 2002, Podesta spoke at a news conference held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., where he called upon the U.S. government "to declassify [UFO] records that are more than 25 years old." He has also written the foreword for a book entitled “UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record” by investigative journalist Leslie Kean, which was released on August 10th 2010.
Podesta's interest in the potential existence of alien life forms has not waned, and he pronounces himself to be still "curious."
“As someone interested in the questions of UFOs, I think I have always understood the difference between fact and fiction. I guess you could call me a curious skeptic,” he said.
Now that Podesta has been returned to a powerful position on the Presidential staff, one can only assume that he will use this added authority to help further his aims, and attempt to persuade President Obama to give this subject the credence that Podesta thinks it deserves. His recent Twitter response to journalist, Dave Weigel, says it all:
"The truth is out there, Dave".
U.S. citizens will be watching this space with interest, and we can be sure that flies buzzing around in the Oval Office will soon be privy to some extremely interesting conversations...
