'Smelled like... Victory...'
Billy Cox

Ostensibly, the Obama White House had nothing to worry about
with at least two UFO petitions circulating on its =93We the
People=94 website. Vague, inferential, and submitted without a
factoid of evidence that =93an extraterrestrial presence [is]
engaging the human race,=94 the appeal that drew the most
signatures for =93UFO disclosure=94 was a guaranteed DOA. At least,
at first glance. What was mildly intriguing about the White
House response =97 its contents as predictable as stank on
roadkill =97 was its timing.

Conventional wisdom holds that if your hand is being forced in
Washington and you want to minimize its impact, you release your
statement/data/whatever on Friday night, after the press has
knocked off for the weekend and is deep into Happy Hour suds.
And that's exactly what White House Office of Science &
Technology Policy advisor Phil Larson did.

Declaring that =93The 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,=94
Larson hit the send button and zipped a press release into the
media dead zone. By Monday, however, mainstream outlets from The
Wall Street Journal to USA Today were dutifully slurping it up,
the way they always do.

Obviously disappointed was retired USAF captain Robert Salas,
whose 2010 press conference in Washington with half a dozen
other military veterans testifying to UFO activity above nuke-
weapons bases was ignored by the MSM. Salas' petition had
collected 387 signatures above the 5,000-name threshold/30-day
deadline initially imposed by the White House to guarantee an
automatic answer.
