Press Release
John Podesta, Governor Bill Richardson and Exopolitics

Washington, DC - There is an extraordinary anomaly embedded in
the ongoing political campaign cycle well on its way to being
the longest and most expensive in American history. It centers
on two key figures in the Democratic Party - John Podesta and
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.

John Podesta was a key adviser and chief of staff to President
Bill Clinton, husband of the leading Democratic presidential
candidate, Senator Hillary Clinton. Podesta then became the
founder and CEO of the Center for American Progress, a left of
center think tank funded by George Soros and others to counter
the influence of the Heritage Foundation and the American
Enterprise Institute. He operates at the center of the
intellectual matrix forming policy for the anticipated
Democratic administration and expanded Democratic House and
Senate in 2009.


In October of 2002 and 2003 at the National Press Club Podesta
gave opening statements at two press conferences scheduled by
the Coalition for Freedom of Information which contained these

"I think it's time to open the books on questions that have
remained in the dark on the question of government
investigations of UFOs... We ought to do it because... the
American people quite frankly can handle the truth, and we ought
to do it because it's the law."

"It is time for the government to declassify records that are
more than 25 years old and to provide scientists with data that
will assist in determining the real nature of this (UFO)


Governor Richardson also served in the Clinton administration
after spending 14 years in the House of Representatives. He
served one year as Ambassador to the United Nations and two
years as Secretary of Energy. He then became a successful
governor and participated in numerous foreign missions. In a
foreword to The Roswell Dig Diaries published in 2006 by
Pocket Books Governor Richardson wrote:

".....the mystery surrounding this crash (at Roswell) has never
been adequately explained - not by independent investigators,
and not by the U.S. government."

"It would help everyone if the U.S. government disclosed
everything it knows. With full disclosure and our best
scientific investigation, we should be able to find out what
happened on that fateful day in July of 1947. The American
people can handle the truth no matter how bizarre or mundane,
and contrary to what you see in the movies."


The aforementioned anomaly has two parts: 1) why haven't the
top-tier political media and presidential debate moderators
challenged these men on their statements which directly
contradict government policy regarding what is easily the most
implicative issue of our time, and 2) given that partisan
politics is as vicious as the pundits can recall and every
opportunity to bring down an opponent, within or without one's
party, is taken with relish, John Podesta and Bill Richardson
are completely untouched regarding their provocative statements
relating to Roswell and ET/UFO phenomena.

Senator George Allen's political career was ended by a single
careless word. Senators John McCain and Max Cleland were
viciously attacked without basis in fact on the most personal
level. But a high level Democratic political operative and
presidential candidate have directly challenged the government's
formal policy that UFO's are a non-issue and extraterrestrials
do not exist, and remain untouched by their political enemies
and the press. What is going on here?
