UFO Survey Reveals Many Americans Believe the Obama White House is Lying (truncated title)
marketwatch.com ^ | 12/21/2011

Posted on 12/21/2011 10:04:10 AM PST by RoosterRedux

A majority of people surveyed believe the Obama White House is lying when it says the government has no evidence that extraterrestrial beings exist.

According to those surveyed, 99% believe that UFO's of extraterrestrial origin have visited earth now or sometime in the past!

And about 98% believe that the US government "knows more than it is saying" about UFO's and extraterrestrials, thus disputing the White House recent announcement last month on its website stating that that government/scientists/CIA/ military do not have information that supports that extraterrestrials do exist.

"When asked, most people feel that the government has more knowledge and information than they are letting on... that supports that extraterrestrials do exist," said Dr. Simeon Hein, the director of The Mount Baldy Institute for Resonant Viewing in Boulder, Colorado ( www.mountbaldy.com ) which conducted the online survey at UFOsurvey.com that polled nearly 300 people.

But what some might find most surprising - of all, is that over half of those surveyed admitted they themselves have sighted what they believe are UFO's in the skies all over the United States to as far as Israel and they describe their sightings in great detail on the site.

99% ? They would be correct, but I am just a bit suspicious of that number.

Could it be that no one believes anything that Obummer says?

Obama would not even be told if they did exist. He wouldn’t pass the basic security requirements. So, any pronouncement from his admin about the topic is meaningless.

I think the military is smart enough not to share anything it does not have to with Obama

I think they told Reagan

I dont think they told Carter

Bush was in on it from the start and so is his son

Obama? no way

With all the troubles that we have right now, Marketwatch is writing about the little green men?!?

If Planet Zorgon XVI is bringing cash to bail us out then they are welcome. Otherwise they buzz us with their flying saucers to their hearts content. We have better things to worry about.

It’s obvious from the sudden emergence of new technologies that we’ve reversed engineered them from advanced civilizations. Think about it - who would have been smart enough to invent a candy that melts in your mouth, not in your hand?

Sure... hundreds [thousands?] of people in the past and present government know all about it.... or maybe there is no secret? i.e.

I’d like to hope your assessment would be accurate if there was anything alien or super-unbelieveable out there.

Well that puts me in the 1%. I have no doubt that other intelligent species exist in the universe but the idea that they are wasting their time flying around interstellar space is ridiculous. Considering the distances involved it makes no sense to me and even if something like a wormhole could be used why waste time coming here?

You raise a good point. When someone becomes POTUS does that automatically give them need to know access?

In other words, are all of our secrets briefed to the successor POTUS as soon as they are sworn in?

There are pockets of Congress who have access to Special Access Programs however they often don’t know what the program is about.

Would the President be Briefed on a UFO Special Access Program
http://www.ufoskeptic.org/president.html
In 1976 presidential candidate Jimmie Carter promised the American people that he would open any government UFO files that might exist. Recall that while governor of Georgia, Carter had a UFO sighting and actually filed a report. After winning election to President, Carter met with CIA Director George H. W. Bush seeking a briefing on the topic. Bush turned him down, claiming that neither as President nor as Commander-in-Chief did he have a “need to know.” Once in office Carter turned to NASA for information, directing presidential science advisor Frank Press to ask NASA administrator Robert Frosch to “form a small panel of inquiry” to investigate the UFO situation. This letter and other correspondence may be found in “UFOs and NASA” (Journal of Scientific Exploration, pp. 93—142, 1988). Nothing at all came of this as recounted by Richard C. Henry — then a young astrophysicist (now a prominent Johns Hopkins professor) working as a deputy to the director of what was the Astrophysics Division at NASA headquarters — on whose desk this “hot potato” request landed. For five months NASA went through some amusing twists and turns, recounted by Henry, before politely declining.

Discounting the NASA farce, and assuming that any possible UFO program would exist as a Special Access Program in the Department of Defense, on what legal basis would the President and Commander-in-Chief be denied access?

It is likely that the UFO topic is actually classified by one or more laws duly enacted by Congress in the late 1940s concerning national security — but without any overt reference to UFOs of course — and signed by President Truman. Only a handful of members of Congress, if any at all, would have known that more than Cold War issues were involved in this far-reaching national security legislation enacted at a time of near panic over a Soviet nuclear threat. There are at least two bins into which the UFO topic could have been placed such that a future President could not unilaterally release it (legally) or, in fact, maybe even know about it. One bin is the category of Restricted Data (RD) established by the Atomic Energy Act in 1946 and pertains to Special Nuclear Material (SNM); another bin would be what has since evolved into the Waived Special Access Program system set up under the authority of the National Security Council which traces back to the National Security Act signed by Truman in 1947 (interestingly only a couple of weeks after the Roswell episode).

That means that even if an incoming President asked someone who knew about the existence of such a program, that individual would be required by law to not only not tell the President, but also to actively mislead him, if necessary. (Such a policy is actually spelled out in controversial documents that researchers Ryan and Robert Wood obtained and traced back to CIA Director Allen Dulles in the 1950s. The source of these documents is unclear.) If a president today tried the same thing without the appropriate clearances (which he could not give to himself) he would likewise be told (legitimately) that there was nothing disclosable. If this hypothesis is correct, then UFO information would be “Born Secret” by the Atomic Energy Act, and not releasable to anyone without at least an AEC “Q” clearance (and likely higher, R or above), plus a legitimate need to use it in his/her job. By law, all RD is “owned” by the AEC Commissioner at its inception. The AEC clearance standards are somewhat different than executive branch standards. In order to grant a Q or higher clearance, the Commissioner must find that the applicant is of “good moral character,” among other things. Thus, if the Commissioner didn’t like Richard Nixon’s burglary at the Watergate Hotel, or Bill Clinton’s dalliances, the Commissioner could withhold access to RD even on those grounds.

A new President who wants to know what the government knows about UFOs would have to be persistent, clever, and informed before beginning the quest, as Clinton’s failed attempt via Associate Attorney General Webster Hubble attests. Simply issuing a presidential executive order declassifying the topic might yield the mistaken conclusion that there is no such material. The first step would be to determine under exactly what legal jurisdiction the matter is classified. This could best be accomplished by a small dedicated research team reporting directly and personally to the President with at least high enough clearances to be able to read all classified Presidential Decision Memoranda and the classified appendices to the Atomic Energy Act and the National Security Act.

If aliens exist - then God created them. We are not supposed to believe in the Creator and the miracle of the Universe.

99% is completely believable when you consider it was a survey conducted on a UFO website (where only people who believe in UFOs participate).
