UFO NEWS | Yet Another Petition is Borne: Requests Investigation into Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)

Put Title Here

The UFO Chronicles
     On Sept 22, two petitions were established by ET/Alien Lobbyist Steve Bassett of The Paradigm Group (PRG) at the newly created “We The People, Your Voice in Our Government” web-page at the White House’s official web-site, they stated the following respectively:
Immediately disclose the government's knowledge of and communications with extraterrestrial beings
This Petition calls for the President to disclose to the American people the long withheld knowledge of government interactions with extraterrestrial beings and call for open Congressional hearings to allow the people to become aware of this subject through those whose voices have been silenced by unconstitutional secrecy oaths.

formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race - Disclosure.
Disclosure Petition - Paradigm Research Group
We, the undersigned, strongly urge the President of the United States to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and immediately release into the public domain all files from all agencies and military services relevant to this phenomenon."
Hundreds of military and government agency witnesses have come forward with testimony confirming this extraterrestrial presence. Opinion polls now indicate more than 50% of the American people believe there is an extraterrestrial presence and more than 80% believe the government is not telling the truth about this phenomenon. The people have a right to know. The people can handle the truth.
At that time 5000 signatures was the threshold to incur an official response (now 25,000); both achieved that goal, the latter with over 12,000 signatures. A few weeks later and to no one’s surprise (in my view) the expected response was posted by Phil Larson for space policy and communications at the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy, and it in part read as follows:
“Thank you for signing the petition asking the Obama Administration to acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence here on Earth.

The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye.

However, that doesn't mean the subject of life outside our planet isn't being discussed or explored. In fact, there are a number of projects working toward the goal of understanding if life can or does exist off Earth.”
From there Larson cited the SETI program, the Keplar spacecraft and the Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity as examples of the fore mentioned search and or study of the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

Although, the petitions had little or no impact in regards to their intent, they did create a lot of controversy in the so-called UFO community. Stan Friedman was quick to pen a staunch critique of White House’s official response in his piece entitled, Petition, UFOs, White House and Lies. Shortly thereafter noted journalist/author Leslie Kean chimed in with her sober, sagacious “Way Forward.”

This brings us to the latest petition authored by UFO celebrities Richard M. DOLAN and Bryce ZABEL, it states:

Investigate Unidentified Aerial Phenomena as Reported by Citizens, Police, Astronauts, Pilots and the Military
Searching for microbes on Mars and radio signals from space is not enough. We must explain Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, or UAP, right here on Earth.
For six decades worldwide, credible witnesses (including Presidents Carter and Reagan) have consistently described objects with flight capabilities beyond our technology. UAP are often verified by radar and even seen at nuclear sites by military officers.
Given the national security implications, the United States should conduct an independent investigation. This inquiry must transparently review the key unsolved UAP reports with access to classified documents. It must have the power to call witnesses and grant immunity.
The findings should be publicly presented.
Aside from citing Martian microbes and signals from space in the first sentence, the verbiage: ET’s, extraterrestrials, aliens etc.—were omitted from the appeal.

On Dolan & Zabel’s web-site they make clear that there isn’t a conflict with Bassett (who is submitting another petition as well); they write:
"Our good friend Stephen Bassett has drafted another petition, which he calls 'Disclosure Petition II - Rockefeller Initiative' that is also up on the White House website. We urge you to also read it and consider signing.

The fact that there are two prominent petitions is not a sign of discord or competition. It's a healthy part of the dialogue. We salute Steve and all the others who are working for Disclosure.

We're all in this together."
Although there is no intent of dissension, one can’t help but wonder about the redundancy of “multiple petitions.” At this writing, the latest petition has garnered 165 signatures, with 24,835 to go.
