FOIA Hitch Could Be 'X-Files'-Related

Billy Cox

Meanwhile, north of the border in Winnipeg, as the grotesquely
protracted U.S. presidential campaign grinds on and on and on,
Grant Cameron is still waiting for the William Jefferson Clinton
Presidential Library to send him the UFO stuff.

When the 138 million-page library opened its doors in Little
Rock, Ark., in January '06, Cameron and scores of his Freedom of
Information Act requests were idling near the front of the line.

At his Web site, Cameron chronicles frequent conversational UFO
references by the Clinton White House. He says his FOIAs are
trolling for the sort of unglamorous tedium (e.g., schedules
from the early 1990s, when the late billionaire philanthropist
Laurance Rockefeller was distributing UFO briefing documents to
Washington insiders) that could provide a back-door glimpse into
the Clintons' maneuvering with the issue.

Grounded by U.S. security agents in 2005 (De Void, 7/3/07) from
presenting his "64 Reasons the Government Decided Not to Tell
You What's Going On" to a crowd in Los Angeles, Cameron's an old
hand at the FOIA game. That's why he's a tad puzzled over why
he's heard so little from the Clinton Library.

"I got Nancy's (Reagan) astrology stuff a lot sooner than this,"
he says. "Six months, somewhere in there, mostly copies of
newspaper articles, editorial cartoons they'd collected, huge
amounts of paper, maybe 2,000 pages."

Why the long delay with Clinton? Cameron suspects Sen. Hillary
Clinton's bid for the White House is a factor.

"There's things in there like (chief of staff John) Podesta's
50th birthday party," Cameron says. "Podesta was a big 'X-Files'
fan, and Bill and Hillary came dressed up as 'X-File'
characters. There's videotape of it, and I've requested it. I'm
sure they don't want that kind of material coming out during the
election cycle."

Unless the former first couple employed themes from the episodes
"Home" (inbred pig people) or "The Host" (worm/human mutant
sewage parasite), De Void fails to see the problem.
