ET, Call the White House
Good news! Obama's inner circle includes at least two UFO afficionados: John Podesta and Bill Richardson. Richardson thinks there's been a coverup, and Podesta has already weighed in to declassify documents during the Clinton years. Both are being lobbied by the Extraterrestrial Political Action Committee to come clean and tell us about all those flying saucers, and, of course, the key question of our age: what is hidden under the sands in Roswell, New Mexico, anyway?
The London Telegraph's Tim Shipman tell us
The group wants the incoming president to insist on a "full briefing from your military services and intelligence agencies regarding what they know" and to open congressional hearings "to take testimony from scores of government witnesses who have already come forward with extraordinary evidence and are prepared to testify under oath."
The campaigners, who resent their common portrayal as nuts and conspiracy theorists, have high hopes of success due to their inside track with Mr Obama.
Maybe Obama will talk about it on Inauguration Day? Now THAT would really be something.
