Change You Can – Er – Believe In?

Well, Obama’s supporters on the left are having to deal with the fact that Obama’s administration is looking an awful lot like the Clinton administration. Which is amusing. What is somewhat less amusing is the fact that there appear to be at least two former Clintonistas – now Obamanistas – who are slightly less than in touch with reality.

When he was the White House chief of staff under Bill Clinton, Mr Podesta led a project to declassify 800 million pages of intelligence documents. In a press conference, still available to watch on the YouTube website, Mr Podesta said: “It is time for the government to declassify records that are more than 25 years old and to provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon.”

Gov Richardson, a former presidential candidate and fellow UFO aficionado, has written a forward to a book on the so-called Roswell Incident in New Mexico, where campaigners believe an alien spacecraft crash landed near the town of Roswell in 1947 and that the corpses of humanoid aliens have been kept hidden under lock and key by the government.

He has called for full disclosure by the Pentagon of what really occurred and reiterated his belief that there had been a “cover-up” during a presidential debate last year.

The campaigners, who want the truth “out there”, believe that the British Government’s decision to declassify thousands of UFO sighting documents this year has made it untenable for the US to maintain its policy of non-disclosure.

Only last week a US Air Force pilot, Milton Torres, whose testimony was released from the British archives, appeared on US television explaining how he was ordered to shoot down a large UFO over the UK in 1957 and then silenced by military officials, who told him never to speak of the incident.

Stephen Bassett, Executive Director of the Extraterrestrial Phenomenon Political Action Committee, expects to have gathered 40,000 signatures via email and fax by Mr Obama’s inauguration day on Jan 20 in support of his calls for openness.

Well, that is a really substantial constituency in a country of 300 million or so. One can see the raw political power behind Bill Richardson.

For the rest of us 299,960,000 of us, we can have confidence that we are in the good hands of change we can believe in. We can now believe we have several whack-jobs in charge of the government. And be confident about that.

    Gaius, these are scary people as well as crackpots. And now they have a tremendous amount of power. It may not be entirely safe to laugh at them anymore.

    The Thunder Run has linked to this post in the – Web Reconnaissance for 12/01/2008 A short recon of what’s out there that might draw your attention, updated throughout the day…so check back often.

    You know, I actually believe people see things they cannot place. But I find it hysterical that they wont accept the idea that the military has experimental craft, even after the disclosure of stealth technology obviously accounted for many of the “wing shaped UFO’s” seen throughout the 80’s.

    Of course Podesta’s demands are nonsense. Even if a technology toyed around with 30 years ago didn’t work well enough to enter service, it doesnt mean old design cannot be re-visited in an updated approach. His seeming ignorance of the point of R&D is scary.

    Silly, scary people – with power – is not a pretty scenario.
