UFO Ticket: Hillary/Richardson?

Billy Cox

Depending on who you read, the number of registered lobbyists in
Washington, D.C., is between 11,000 and 39,402.

Don't ask.

What you can take to the bank is this: Only one of them is
trying to persuade Congress to pry the lid of secrecy off UFOs.
Predictably, he doesn't have a whole lot of bribe money , er,
spending money, to toss around.

His name is Stephen Bassett, and he's the executive director of
the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee, or X-
PPAC, at wwww.x-ppac.org.

Not a lot of water in that desert so far. During his first year
in office, President George W. Bush signaled his contempt for
disclosing even the most innocuous formalities of history with
Executive Order 13233. That one revoked the Presidential Records
Act of 1978, a congressionally mandated, Watergate-era reform
allowing public access to most presidential papers a dozen years
after the end of any given regime.

While waiting for the Bush-Cheney term to expire, Bassett puts
the best odds for UFO openness in the next administration on a
Hillary Clinton/Bill Richardson ticket.

The Clintons flirted with the issue in the 1990s, even meeting
with Laurance Rockefeller at a time when the late billionaire
was distributing UFO briefing papers in political circles.
Associate Attorney General Webster Hubbell revealed in his
autobiography how Bill Clinton had dispatched him on an
unsuccessful mission to bring new details to light. In 2002,
former Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta held a press
conference demanding the U.S. "open the books on questions that
have remained in the dark on the question of government
investigations of UFOs."

And just last year, responding to the longstanding skepticism by
his fellow New Mexicans of government explanations about an
alleged crash in 1947, Richardson contributed his own advocacy
for openness to a book called "The Roswell Dig Diaries":

"It would help everyone if the U.S. government disclosed
everything it knows... The American people can handle the truth,
no matter how bizarre or mundane, and contrary to what you see
in the movies."

No doubt the media will be all over this stuff in the primaries.
