Thought this deserved a thread. The white house responded on their site to one of the UFO questions.
Quote: The White House has responded to two petitions asking the U.S. government to acknowledge formally that aliens have visited Earth and to disclose any intentional withholding of government interactions with extraterrestrial beings.
"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," Phil Larson from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy reported on the WhiteHouse.gov website."In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye."
The petition calling on the government to disclose any knowledge of or communication with extraterrestrial beings was signed by 5,387 people, and 12,078 signed the request for a formal acknowledgement from the White House that extraterrestrials have been engaging the human race.
“Hundreds of military and government agency witnesses have come forward with testimony confirming this extraterrestrial presence,” the second petition states. “Opinion polls now indicate more than 50 percent of the American people believe there is an extraterrestrial presence and more than 80 percent believe the government is not telling the truth about this phenomenon. The people have a right to know. The people can handle the truth.”
These petitions were sparked by an Obama administration initiative called "We the People." Initially, the White House said staffers would respond and consider taking action on any issue that received at least 5,000 online signatures within 30 days. The requirement has since been raised to 25,000 signatures.
Larson stressed that the facts show there is no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth. He pointed out that even though many scientists have come to the conclusion that the odds of life somewhere else in the universe are fairly high, the chance that any of them are making contact with humans are extremely small, given the distances involved.
"However, that doesn't mean the subject of life outside our planet isn't being discussed or explored," Larson wrote.
Larson mentioned that a scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence is keeping an “ear” out for signals from alien civilizations, with none found so far. (He noted that this at first was a NASA effort, but is now being funded privately.)
He added that the Kepler spacecraft is searching for Earthlike planets in the habitable zones around other stars, and that the Curiosity rover will launch to Mars this month to "assess what the Martian environment was like in the past to see if it could have harbored life."
Regarding any evidence for alien life, all anyone has now is "statistics and speculation," Larson said. "The fact is we have no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth."
The Paradigm Research Group, one of the organizations promoting the petitions, said that the response by a "low-level staffer" was unacceptable and that it would begin a new petition campaign.
It is a bit lame that a low level person answered the question but what else would you expect. Does Obama really know anything about ufos? I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't but who knows I guess. Obviously we can see from the marijuana question theyre looking out for themselves more than anything else so they can't be trusted but that doesn't mean they know anything about ufos ether.

1. The white house probably doesn't have a need to know - they don't nessacerily have the top military intelligence clearances 2. It can actually be proved false as there were a couple of times that USA has slipped up and evidence of their secret UFO program was leaked
I can't pull up all the data at the moment but one document came from UK military showing they wanted our UFO data to be sent to their intelligence boys and there was another incident where they m,ade reference to a UFO officer on a military base. All the while publicly stating they have no UFO interest or program.
The truth is its 1 of the highest classified subjects in the military. Just look at the cases at maelstrom and vandenburg and rendelsham etc If UFOs displaying capability to manipulate our nuclear warheads at our most secret storage facilities is not of defence interest then nothing at all is. The truth is of course it is of interest. Its of extreme interest. Last thing a defence organisation does is admit when their defences are being penetrated and scanned/manipulated by unknown technologies. That shit goes right to the top of classification.
