OSTP: No 25,000, No Reply
by Billy Cox

Talk about old school - get a load of Dr. Dennis Eberl of
Boulder, Colo. Here's what he wrote in an email to the White
House Office of Science and Technology Policy on Jan. 4. It was
Eberl's third futile attempt to get feedback on a UFO question:

"I feel that it is your duty, as a government employee, to
respond to my inquiries on this important matter. I worked for
the U.S. Geological Survey as a scientist for 30 years log and
always replied to citizens who wrote me, because, ultimately, I
worked for them."

"There was also a member of the Air Force Office of Special
Investigations in the room. He ordered us to not ever talk about
this. I even signed a non-disclosure statement to that effect" -
- Ret. USAF Capt. Robert Salas, Sept. 27, 2010/CREDIT:

Specifically, Eberl was directing his question to OSTP's Phil
Larson. The "important matter" on Eberl's mind was a followup to
Larson's contention back in November that "there is no credible
information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from
the public's eye." Larson's position - the first official White
House statement on space aliens since god knows when - was
forced on account of a new executive office initiative to
encourage Americans to make policy-issue inquiries and invite
feedback if they could acquire 5,000 signatures. The White House
was swamped by so many petitions, it raised the response-
threshold trigger to 25,000 names.

Anyhow, Larson's contention that "The 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" created a worldwide publicity splash. We know
about Eberl's followup on account of FOIA requests for
subsequent correspondences to OSTP by Canadian researcher Grant
