Source: Blog De Void http://tinyurl.com/7k9abnw November 24th, 2011 02:08pm Are UFOs Trivial Enough For Congress? by Billy Cox More than a decade after leaving the Clinton White House, former Office of Science and Technology Policy director John Gibbons still gets dyspeptic over the mention of that annoying UFO business in the 1990s. Or at least, his office does. It's a cautionary tale about how a persistent zillionaire thought he could use his connections to uncover hidden government UFO stash. The online paper trail details how, for three futile years, Laurance Rockefeller's lobbying efforts with the executive branch laid goose eggs. It titillates us with President Clinton's coy public pass at the issue in 1995, and with the ex post facto admission by former deputy attorney general Webster Hubbell that he went on a fishing expedition for evidence of a UFO coverup for his boss and came up empty. And throughout the ordeal, OSTP's Gibbons was doing his best to placate Rocky while masking his irritability over having to field non-specific charges that ET dynamite was ticking away in the classified cellars and attics. Fifteen years later, the Obama administration will no doubt plead ignorance about the contentious UFO subculture asterisk known as the "Rockefeller Initiative". But that won't stop lobbyist Steve Bassett from pressing the point with his impending "We The People" petition to the White House.
