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: news.discovery.com 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 Cameron.
