But contrary to the Columbia Tribune’s concerns, Podesta had clearly not abandoned the cause. He wrote an introduction to the 2010 book “UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record ().”
In it, he wrote: “As someone interested in the question of UFOs, I think I have always understood the difference between fact and fiction. I guess you could call me a curious skeptic. But I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best.”
Last year, President Bill Clinton appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Show to offer these tantalizing words: “If we were visited some day, I wouldn’t be surprised.”
Is it possible that both the president and Podesta know more than they (are allowed to) let on? If your answer is yes, that leaves us to speculate on why they’re not revealing it.
Is it because we’d be frightened? Or is it because our belief systems would become so displaced that what remains of our social cohesion would dissolve?
Surely the government can at least give us a flavor of what is here and from out there. I mean, we’re all about transparency these days, aren’t we?
