UFOs: Friends or Foes?

Frank Allnutt

Close Encountgers coverLast week I was preparing to place the 2015 Edition of my book on “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”on my web site for free reading, under a new title, A Closer Look at Close Encounters. In the midst of that project, the media reported that former Clinton chief of staff—andUFO advocate—John Podesta had been named President Obama’s newest advisor. The Huffington Post pulled an article from its archives for a Podesta/UFO back story, which disclosed, in part:

Podesta, 64, has more than once publicly urged the U.S. government to release any UFO files that could help scientists determine “the real nature of this phenomenon.” Podesta’s stance on UFOs can be seen in the following video clip from the 2009 James Fox film, “I Know What I Saw.” Podesta spoke at a 2002 news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., where he called upon the U.S. government “to declassify [UFO] records that are more than 25 years old.”Adding more fuel to the fire, Podesta wrote the foreword to Leslie Kean’s 2010 New York Times bestseller, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, And Government Officials Go On The Record:

I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can’t be trusted with the truth. The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. Presenting the facts, the book includes statements from only the most credible sources—those in a position to know—about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. The American people—and people around the world—want to know, and they can handle the truth.
