Clinton White House official lobbies agencies to release UFO

From National Journal


Former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta is now a lobbyist
who most notably has been representing opponents of the proposed
nuclear-waste repository at Yucca Mountain, northwest of Las
Vegas. He has said that his experience in government convinced
him of the value of pruning back overly broad government-secrecy

Now he has a rather unusual partner.

On Oct. 22, Podesta appeared at a news conference with a
coalition backed by cable TV's Sci-Fi Channel. The group's
mission: opening secret government archives so that any
evidence, pro or con, about unidentified flying objects can be
aired in public.

Podesta told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he was personally
skeptical about UFOs, but added, "I think it's time to open the
books on questions that have remained in the dark."
