You can see from this transcript that if nothing else the man
has an excellent sense of humour, and a genuinely self
depracating one at that - no doubt a vital component in a class
act that positions him as the political Elvis.

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.
