However, as with any sharp political operator, it is possible to extract a clear sub-text from any public pronouncement. In this instance we have the Roswell Question usefully packaged with the JFK assassination issue. From the response you can immediately see that Bill is sticking to the party line recommended in two key briefings (the one for all incoming presidents and the one for all outgoing presidents - the briefings that answer the questions that all presidents with any intellectual curiosity will have, and which arm incumbents for any curve balls they are thrown for the remainder of their lifetimes). So we can just deduce from this what the briefings on JFK and UFOs actually amount to: "Well sir, the truth of the matter is that we just don't know what the truth actually is. Whatever you might suspect the truth to be, the chances are that the real facts are more more worrying and bewildering than that. In light of this you are are urged to stick rigidly to the official story on these matters - a policy that served your predecessors well and which avoids all the potential difficulties that any other position would inevitably entail." Thus, on the surface, there's nothing to see here, folks, so kindly move along. But Bill does have this wonderful sense of humour, and he just can't resist using it to give a guarded clue as to the real nature of things: he very specifically says that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I take this as an indication that he wants us to know that he doesn't believe the party line and the official story, and that he thinks we're all crazy if we do.
