Obama Advisor John Podesta says ‘biggest failure’ was not securing the disclosure of UFO files

Press Release
For Immediate Distribution
Top Advisor wants to tell the world about UFOs

Toronto [ZNN] A report by the award winning Al Kamen in the Washington Post describes John Podesta’s regret that he was unable to de-classify files on UFOs while in his capacity as Barack Obama’s chief advisor. 

This same report has also received growing coverage at UPI as well as by other journalists in at least six other mainstream media outlets. [See MEDIA RESOURCES]

John Podesta on Twitter stated: 'Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere cc: @NYTimesDowd'

Two Big Questions Loom 
Why would a renowned lawyer, CEO and strategist named John David Podesta - noted for his dextrous political influence on Capitol Hill - even bother to make such a politicly loaded statement? Does his use of the words ‘once again’ mean he’s tried before to get UFO files disclosed? ZNN is the only Canadian news outlet that can provide a context and perspective on these and other questions about Mr. Podesta’s motives.

When Podesta Speaks...
Podesta’s motivations are framed by a career as an influential and powerful Democrat - marked by a tenure as Chief of Staff under President Bill Clinton and, as Co-Chair of Obama’s post-election Transition Team in 2008-2009. His notorious endurance, political savvy and aggressive nature helped Podesta rule with an unquestioned and iron fist while in the Clinton White House. Reports are that Podesta put in place a strategy that singled-handedly averted President Clinton’s impeachment in the US Senate following the Monica Lewinski affair. What is also of appreciable interest is that this Iron Man is slated to be Hillary Clinton’s chief advisor on her Presidential election team. It appears that when Podesta speaks - the Clintons listen. 

Despite a sparkling sense of humour - the word out there is Podesta never kids when it comes to 'affairs of state'. The assessment by all media thus far is that  Podesta was not kidding - but dead serious about his failure to obtain the disclosure of UFO files. 

As a Georgetown University trained lawyer, Constitutional expert, CEO of the Center for American Progress and marathon runner - Podesta seems to be the kind of guy who can stick his hand in a raging bonfire and, unscathed - pull out a snowball.

These assessments must be seriously deliberated upon before anyone even ponders criticizing John Podesta’s many public admonitions to the US government about its steel-plated use of secrecy around the matter of UFOs. 

UFO Questions in the Dark
His first warning to the US government occurred at the Washington DC National Press Club in 2002 and 2003. In these volleys Podesta asserted: “I think it's time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It's time to find out what the truth really is that's out there. We ought to do it because it's right, we ought to do it because the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth and we ought to do it because it's the law.” See: 

Later, in the New York Times bestseller Generals, Pilots and Government Officials go on the Record by former Boston Globe journalist Leslie Kean, Podesta wrote in the book’s forward:

“… it is time for government, scientists and aviation experts to work together in unravelling the questions about UFOs that have so far remained in the dark.” 

He also stated in the book’s foreword:
"I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can't be trusted with the truth. The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. Presenting the facts, the book includes statements from only the most credible sources -- those in a position to know -- about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined. It's time to find out what the truth really is that's out there. The American people -- and people around the world -- want to know, and they can handle the truth."
Sounds like the man is serious.

Many Unresolved Questions
Again - the question: why would such a high ranking Democrat like Podesta make such a statement just after he leaves the White House to join Hillary Clinton’s election team? 

Does he know there are UFO files hidden away - sequestered - beyond the most-sequestered about extraterrestrials? Has he seen these files? Has he discussed them with Obama, President Clinton or Hillary Clinton? Why does he appear to be so consistent in his assertions and so certain about them, while everyone else on Capitol Hill and in the White House are doing their best to ignore anything and everything about unidentified flying objects and a possible ET presence engaging the planet? 

Is it at all likely that Podesta will be pressed openly by mainstream media to expand on his litany of commentaries on UFOs? Why would he make such claims on the record leading up to his alliance with Hillary Clinton when he knows better than anyone that the Republicans will grab any perceived wayward statements like Podesta's and use them to discredit Lady Clinton? Are Democrats who are aligned with Hillary now cringing - quietly asking Hillary why her soon to be appointed advisor is talking UFO secrecy - again? 

So far - no questions are being put to Podesta publicly by US or international mainstream media; media that seems terrified to engage the UFO matter on the grand scale it portends. This collective cowardice by media reveals most journalist know not where to look for answers. 

However - specific answers to some of these questions do exist.

An Unacknowledged White House Context - The Rockefeller Initiative
Answers can be found in Podesta's role as a Principal observer as President Clinton’s Chief of Staff during what is now historically referenced as the Rockefeller Initiative - a period of time in the Clinton White House when a series of over 50 letters attempting to question and investigate the deep secrecy within the US government surrounding the UFO/ET matter. Very few if any mainstream journalists are aware of this stunning compendium of first-hand letters and memos within the White House. When viewed collectively - they conclusively implicate some of the President’s staff and his advisors in discussions about UFO/ET secrecy.

Letters were exchanged and meetings arranged between the President’s Science Advisor Dr. Jack Gibbons and billionaire philanthropist Laurance S. Rockefeller. A large portion of these letters were exchanged among dozens of others - including the office of then First Lady Hillary Clinton, the late Carl Sagan, the late Reverend Billy Graham, the former outspoken Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson on the UFO matter and a host of others from approximately 1993 through to1999. In one 1999 correspondence obtained from the Clinton Library, it named Chief of Staff John Podesta as the recipient of one controversial Memo.

Bill and Webb
If Podesta’s demands to end UFO secrecy are not enough to sway skeptical journalists - Bill Clinton himself cannot escape involvement. For the record Bill Clinton told his associate advisor Webster Hubbell to find out Who Killed John Kennedy and are UFOs real. 
Hubbell states in his book:  “Of my many regrets at that moment, I remember thinking that I hadn’t accomplished something the President had asked me to do when I [he means Clinton] was first elected. “Webb,” he had said, “if I put you at Justice, I want you to find two answers for me. One, Who killed JFK? And two, Are there UFO’s?” He was dead serious. I had looked into both, but wasn’t satisfied with the answers I was getting.”  [Webb Hubbell, "Friends in High Places," p. 282] 
It is also instructive to listen to Clinton's public decree to thousands while in Ireland in 1995 about the Roswell UFO incident. It appears to be no coincidence that this Clinton statement was made during the swirling circulation of the Rockefeller letters within the White House from 1993 to 1999 .  

Next to the Bottom Line
There exists far too much unimpeachable hard evidence, possibly probative in a court of law that would indicate there is something going on in the inner chambers of the White House on the UFO matter … and solicitor Podesta knows about it. 

Does it not seem somewhat of an irony that the days of speculation about government secrecy on the UFO/ET issue have come to an abrupt end, not at a resplendent press conference or evocative Presidential message on national television, but by a bit of social media chatter - all in one 136 character Tweet.

In a typical "news day" context Podesta’s statement can be easily shrugged-off as an isolated flash-point on the UPI wire. However, to the alert journalist the above context drops a political bombshell right in the middle of the early stages of jockeying by candidates for the Presidency. 

As they stand on watch - waiting for things to ignite - the White House and many at the Pentagon, NSA, NRO and the USAF are patently praying this bombshell remains undetonated. They’ll never be able to handle the fall-out because this is no joke - the Washington Post - famed instigator of Nixon’s impeachment and resignation - is again on the trail of this one - something bigger than they can imagine. The New York Times has weighed in too. The bombshell will surely detonate when any of the major TV news outlets like CBS 60 MinutesABC Nightline or NBC Dateline runs with this mega-story. It is sure to rip open the tender underbelly of the media and the hardened gut of the US government when these media heavy hitters - desperate for ratings and revenues - eventually decide to ask the big national security questions about UFOs. 

On another scale completely - any journalist willing to burn some witching hour crude to take the plunge into this rabbit hole could well resurrect themselves with a Pulitzer.

The Bottom Line
This folks is the next Watergate - a 'Cosmic Watergate’ and the first person they’ll want to cross-examine is lawyer John David Podesta.

Air Force UFO files land on Internet

Washington Post, CNN and USA Today cover the US Air Force release of UFO files

REVISED - Press Release

[ADDENDUM 2 - since this press release was distributed - the holder of the PROJECT BLUE BOOK files online, The Black Vault has been forced to remove the files from the internet do to copyright infringements claimed by the third party, ZNN supports The Black Vault's attempts to provide the public with free access to PROJECT BLUE BOOK files and will up-date readers on any appeals that may be forthcoming. 
See for details. ]

Toronto [ZNN] It had to happen sooner or later.  The UK has done it. Canada did it. France did it. So has Belgium. Has the USA capitulated?

Now - all three American media news networks are a-buzz about the declassification and release of nearly 130,000 pages of UFO files by the US Air Force onto the internet - files that were once sequestered and deemed either not existent or inaccessible to the public. This amounts to 37 cubic feet of data - excluding 94 rolls of 35mm of UFO microfilm.

What can be viewed as equally significant - the influential Washington Post, ranked the #2 newspaper in North America by 4International Media and Newspapers - has covered the release of these US Air Force files.

A senior editorial official at ZNN is quoted as stating:

"This break-through by all three major US news networks and one of the country's most influential newspapers to cover this PROJECT BLUE BOOK UFO file release - a long standing metaphor for the 'government UFO cover-up' - represents a significant step forward in the development of a unified media challenge to the US government's silence on the UFO matter.  Will this challenge flush out the US government's propensity to ignore and side-step any open discussion of the thousands if not millions of UFO reports in the US and internationally? We can only wait and see if NBC - CBS and ABC have the courage to pursue this into the chambers of Congress and onto the desk of the President of the United States or, if they too remain complicit in the cover-up." 

These UFO files were assembled during the 1950's to the late 1960s by the infamous PROJECT BLUE BOOK - suddenly shut-down by US Air Force officials when the number of UFO sightings reached epidemic proportions. 

The poorly staffed project could not keep up with or explain the massive wave and relentless presence of UFO sightings, so the Air Force decided to go underground. 

It shrugged off its investigative accountability of this phenomenon and passed along the job of amassing UFO sighting reports to unofficial private UFO organizations and an obscure university where UFO reports were poorly researched - dismissed as hoaxes and ultimately buried - until now.

Now the US media is beginning to sniff out the significance of why and how these files were sequestered since 1969 and released now, in the hope that a dump this large will be indigestible to the general public and to the media. Questions remain.

Why would the US Air Force build a huge repository of over 130,000 pages of UFO sighting reports - 37 cubic feet thick - task a small group of USAF officers with limited resources to examine UFO reports - then, with little explanation, shut down the entire division by making statements such as:

"...[N]othing has happened to indicate that the Air Force ought to resume investigating UFOs. Because of the considerable cost to the Air Force in the past, and the tight funding of Air Force needs today, there is no likelihood the Air Force will become involved with UFO investigation again."

Would a data base this large on alleged child sex offenders, a list of US terrorist cells or leaked ledgers of financial improprieties by banking CEOs go unnoticed by media in the same manner UFO files have been quashed or go unnoticed by media - all consigned to oblivion in the same sophomoric miasma of news of George Clooney's recent marriage or the dating practices of Kim Kardashian?

Is the US government relenting to pressure and on the brink of full disclosure that the planet is indeed being engaged by craft of unknown origin?

The answer to these cutting-edge questions stares one in the face to ostensibly propel an authentic step-forward in the Disclosure movement. 

Something is afoot.
[Ed.Note: It should be noted that the data base under review here in Project Blue Book - appeares not to include official correspondence among United States Air Force, FBI and CIA officials on the UFO matter. ZNN has acquired singular access to these files that are available for review by media journalists.]

PRG's Stephen G. Bassett announces White House Petition VII

Government, Agency and Political witnesses prepared to testify under oath before Congress on Extraterrestrial related events and evidence

Media Alert
Toronto [ZNN] Stephen G. Bassett Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group is extending PRG's world-wide influence to once again challenge the White House on the ET question. This challenge is a re-assertion of actions taken by PRG over the last several weeks to test the metal of American democracy.

First - the distribution to all members of the US Congress and Senate of the entire DVD set cataloguing the proceedings during the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure on the ET question held in May of 2013 at the Washington National Press Club. 

At the week-long hearing before former members of Congress and the Senate, Bassett brought forward 40 former government, military and agency witnesses to present over 30 hours of compelling testimony about their knowledge of and involvement in specific incidents, briefings and research attesting to the reality of an extraterrestrial presence. 

Actual government documents, threats and intimidation by senior military officials towards military personnel and accounts of and interactions with the phenomenon of craft of unknown origin were brought forward each day in unrelenting waves of evidence. This evidence challenges the White House assertion that this phenomenon and the entire matter of an ET presence do not exist.   

Former Congressional and Senate members were unanimous in their call for the US government to hold open hearings and make public all files in their possession on these matters.

Second -  Now Bassett, in his most recent We the People Petition, challenges the White House to do the same: Support open congressional hearings that will allow former US military officers, government agency and political witnesses to testify under oath before a committee of the US Congress.

Many have questioned Bassett's relentless pursuit of the entire matter of the existence of UFOs and a so-called ET presence on Earth - saying it's falling on deaf ears. Others say Bassett is doing something historic and difficult but very concrete about government secrecy and intransigence. 
Those who do question Bassett's ET pursuits - particularly a timorous mainstream media and an imperious elite within the US government - know full well they are playing a fruitless political game of 'truth or dare' with Bassett - one that can only be ended by the sheer magnitude of the evidence and the force of the truth behind that evidence. 
There is no question Bassett has revealed the truth with bona fide and irrefutable witness testimony and documentation on the ET question. He has presented this truth to Congress and the Senate on a silver platter in the form of HD DVD coverage of witness testimony. With that in their hands, Bassett is now daring Congress to acknowledge what he has given to them by holding open hearings to let the truth be known to the American people.

This is why Bassett is counting on public support to sign the We the People Petition at: THE PETITION. Bassett needs 150 signatures to gain visibility of the petition on the We the People web site and 100,000 before February 6, 2015 to get a public response from the White House.

When asked what his basic message to Congress is, Bassett stated: "The message will be the same: open and review the Citizen Hearing DVD sets, meet with PRG's lobbyist to discuss the content, and hold hearings for military, agency and political witnesses to testify."

Will Bassett succeed? The determination of all who seek the truth could be the determining factor for Mr. Bassett. One can only imagine what will happen next if or when Bassett gets the 100,000 signatures. This eventuality raises three plaintive questions of a moral nature about the fate of American democracy:

  • Will the compelling desire for an open dialogue about the ET question and interspecies ethics materialize should elected officials in Congress and the Senate come to a conscious understanding of their sworn duty as servants of the people?
  • Or, will the dialectic between YES and NO continue - leaving citizens helpless in the amorphous middle-ground of uncertainty where the power of the State continues to assert its dominance over citizens' rights to know about their place in the cosmos? 
  • Will the miasma choking American 'democracy' and the futile ramblings of a gutless President be somehow resolved if the people were to react and actually decide to give Bassett his 100,000? 

ZNN supports PRG in its efforts to bring forward the truth. What are your plans?

UFO Evidence Ignored - Edgar Mitchell and Paul Hellyer Co-sign Critique to NASA and Library of Congress

Breaking News

Press Release
For Immediate Distribution

Toronto [ZNN] Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell and the Hon. Paul T. Hellyer former Canadian Minister of Defence, along with Adjunct Professor Bill Wickersham and ZNN news director Victor Viggiani have co-signed an Open Letter critique to the NASA/Library of Congress Symposium on Astrophysics on ET life and its convenor and host - Dr. Steven Dick. The symposium was held in Washington DC at the Library of Congress Sept 18 - 19, 2014.

The symposium attempted to explore how we might prepare for the discovery of ET life, but failed to adequately address the widely available and unacknowledged evidence that verifies the planet is already being engaged by off-world civilizations. 

A quote from the introduction of the group's open letter states: 
"The signatories to this response feel it is most critical... to thoroughly recognize the deleterious political management of human history by elements of national and international governance which have appropriated unabridged jurisdiction over the truth concerning the existence of off-world civilizations."
An Open Letter to Dr. Steven Dick Host - Convenor
NASA/Library of Congress Astrobiology Symposium 

A Response to ‘Preparing for Discovery - NASA/Library of Congress Astrobiology Symposium September 18-19 2014.  

“In the symposium’s panel discussion moderated by Derek Malone France, several ideologically challenging notions were raised by yourself and Robin Lovin that we found both profound yet which proved to be inadequate in addressing the vast spectrum of knowledge currently available on this matter.

The entire topography of the symposium is laden – in an unarticulated manner with the thesis of interspecies ethics – yet for whatever reason no authentic attempt was made to allow for a full exploration of this concept, which must inexorably include the UFO phenomenon, and the possible existence of an ET presence.

 Despite the current body of available evidence… it remains self-evident that the UFO/ET matter has become culturally, politically and theologically inscribed and accepted as a norm by a vast percentage of North Americans and within the international community. Consequently, the exclusion of the UFO/ET matter became obvious by its very absence at the symposium.”

“Even though the government – on all counts remains silent and pokerfaced on this matter – there are courageous individuals of rank and influence who demand a level of truth from the very governments they faithfully once served.

This list includes such dignitaries as NASA Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, former Governor of Arizona Fife Symington, former FAA Senior administrator John Callahan, the late former NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary, the late NASA astronaut Col. Gordon Cooper, former UK Chief of Defence Staff Admiral Lord Hill-Norton, former White House Chief of Staff under President Clinton attorney John Podesta and a host of other professionals. The specific testimony of these individuals is only one measure of the public record on this matter.

 Why would the oral testimony of such notables be ignored and not figure into any authentic attempt to get at all information that would illuminate all facets of this enigmatic component of human existence?

 This question calls into doubt the primary premise of the symposium’s ability and mandate to illuminate the ET matter – especially when entities such as SETI – a previously government funded investigative front is used as a focal point of examination while other evidence is ignored. This is truly regrettable but – one must suppose – politically expedient. Unfortunately, in our opinion, the gaping hole left by the absence of this category of evidence calls into question any findings or conclusions of the symposium – scientific – religious or otherwise."

"Conclusion: The discovery, presence and public revelation of sentient Extraterrestrial life and the vehicles that appear to manifest this presence is the greatest story in the history of humanity. All of the available documentation indisputably suggests the government of the United States, is in fact, withholding this information from its citizens and the citizens of the world.”

Boeing Releases Death Ray Laser Weapon

Anti-Gravitic Technology next?
Press Release - For Immediate Distribution

 Toronto [ZNN] Many have guessed this laser technology was possible and that it has existed for years. 

This announcement by Boeing confirms these suspicions and perhaps more. 

The questions raised by this recent public release by Boeing are ostensibly far more devastating than the new technology itself. 

- What else does Boeing have that remains under wraps? 
- Has this technology been used before in global conflicts without acknowledgement or over-sight by the US government? 
- Is this 911 weaponry released as a ’new defence system’? 
- Was it obtained through back-engineered ET sources? 
- Does this represent new technologies for ‘new wars’ to come?
- Who is the next enemy?

More here than meets the eye…

View this Boeing promotional video to watch the weapon in action: 

Ed. Note: ZlandCommunications has been involved in investigations and research with international researchers in the area of new technologies for nearly 20 years. Because this laser technology has been common knowledge for many years - ZlandCommunications is now confident in predicting that a private military corporation like Boeing - in co-operation with the military industrial complex as well as unacknowledged black budget operations - will soon release to the public - news of ANTI-GRAVITIC PROPULSION TECHNOLOGIES. 

These anti-gravitic propulsion technologies will displace and render obsolete the conventional principles of flight (thrust - drag - lift and weight). Sources close to ZlandCommunications indicate these anti-gravitic propulsion technologies will allow craft of any size, any weight or configuration to move at immeasurable speeds and perform immediate right-angle turns and reversals of flight paths, all accomplished by the cancellation of gravity - with no displacement of air, no G-force harm to occupants or any dependence on the conventional principles of flight, thrust - drag - lift and weight. 

To back-up these claims ZNN cites one statement from the on-line journal - DEFENSE AVIATION - with references to the book “Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion” by Paul A. LaViolette 
"Rumors circulating among aviation industry personnel close to the project allege that the [Boeing] B-2 does use antigravity technology. A similar claim was made in the 1970s by Marion Williams, a former CIA officer who had worked at the highly classified Area 51 facility, where the B-2 was test flown. Just before he died of cancer, Williams confided… that design principles from crashed alien antigravity spacecraft were being utilized in the stealth bomber.” 
Furthermore, ZNN anticipates that the release of news about anti-gravitic propulsion technology will be couched solely in military weapon’s terminology. No mention will be made of the complete and necessary transition away from fossil fuels by the aviation industry and the use of these anti-gravitic technologies for peaceful purposes. 

To the more attentive observer - this behaviour of gradual-release on the part of the US government and its independent contractors reveals an historical and sophisticated strategy of 'leaking-out’ so-called dramatic discoveries that have in fact been in the experimental and operational stages for one or two decades or more.

Is the general public the victim of a clever and orchestrated control of information of new technologies by government or is this simply the natural and plausible evolution of scientific knowledge?

Is there any way to tell the difference?    

Journalists interested in more information are invited to contact ZNN.

Missouri University Professor calls for unfettered study of the UFO phenomenon

Another academic calls for an end to UFO secrecy.

For Immediate Distribution -

Toronto [ZNN] University of Missouri-Columbia adjunct professor in Peace Studies Bill Wickersham has made a call for an unfettered study of the UFO phenomenon. Professor Wickersham joins the growing list of professionals, academics and former government and military officials seeking government disclosure and an end to UFO/ET secrecy.

In the Columbia Daily Tribune article published on September 8, 2014, Professor Wickersham points out several appropriate reasons why the UFO/ET issue requires serious study.

Wickersham reveals a stunning yet little known fact that philanthropist Laurance S. Rockefeller – a member of the internationally renowned Rockefeller family – tasked and funded UFO investigator C. B. “Scott” Jones Ph.D. to travel to Europe, China, Russia and other countries to gather data from government officials and ufologists regarding UFO activities in their country.

Professor Wickersham also reveals that according to Jones, there are a large number of government whistle-blowers who have already come forward to reveal much about government UFO secrecy and the U.S. government’s direct involvement in the UFO matter. Proof of this abounds as will be shown below.

In a particularly disturbing manner, as pointed out in Wickersham's Daily Tribune article, insider C. B. "Scott" Jones is quoted as saying that counter-intelligence programs, threats of fines and imprisonment by the U.S. government await those in official capacities within government and the military who dare to speak the truth about the UFO/ET matter. According to Jones, these threats appear to be becoming less effective as more and more former military and government officials come forward - renouncing their oaths of secrecy to publicly address the UFO/ET matter.

Wickersham goes on to outline the academic, political, social and religious reasons why the academic community must orchestrate a planetary response to the UFO/ET disclosure and contact issue in an unbiased and unfettered manner.

Professor Wickersham now adds his voice to those of a growing number of academics, professionals and government officials calling for studies on the UFO/ET matter and an end to UFO secrecy.

This impressive list includes:
  • Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell,
  •  Former Governor of Arizona - Fife Symington,
  • Former White House Chief of Staff under President Bill Clinton Attorney John Podesta,
  • Princeton Professor and NASA astronaut the late Dr. Brian O'Leary
  • Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard School of Medicine the late Dr. John E. Mack
  • Former Canadian Minister of Defence the Hon. Paul T. Hellyer
  • Watergate and Pentagon Papers Attorney Daniel P. Sheehan JD,
  • Former ICBM Launch Commander USAF Captain Robert Salas (Ret.),
  • Former U.S. Navy officer and photographic expert Professor Dr. Robert Jacobs,
  • NASA astronaut the late Col. Gordon Cooper,
  • Retired McGill University Professor Don Donderi Ph.D.,
  • Professor of Physics at Stanford University Peter Sturrock Ph.D.,
  • Journalist Leslie Kean author of UFOs - Generals, Pilots and Government officials go on the Record, [Random House - Crown Publishing - New York Times Bestseller List 2010]
  • Registered Washington D.C. lobbyist Stephen G. Bassett
  • Former UK Ministry of Defence official and researcher Nick Pope,
  • Canadian author and nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman.

[Ed. Note: Journalists who may wish full documentation concerning the positions on the UFO/ET matter held by each of these professionals are invited to review the PRESS KIT below or contact ZlandCommunications directly.] 

The bold assessment of this global issue by Professor Wickersham raises two serious questions:

1. Why does mainstream press staunchly persist in evading and overtly ridiculing the obvious evidence pointing towards the reality and substantive nature of the UFO matter?

2. Why does mainstream media continue to ignore the clarion calls by professionals, authors, former government and military officials as well as NASA astronauts who have publicly and formally gone on record to demand an end to government secrecy surrounding this global issue?

Although not referenced in Professor Wickersham’s article and further to his incisive appraisal of this issue, it is note worthy that from 1993 to 1996 Laurance S. Rockefeller was also instrumental in pressing U. S. President Bill Clinton through Office of Science and Technology Policy advisor to the President – Dr. John Gibbons, to end the U.S. government’s massive secrecy network surrounding the UFO/ET question.

This dramatic action was taken by Rockefeller and his attorney Henry L. Diamond along with C. B. "Scott" Jones. Rockefeller's strategy reached directly into the White House and placed itself squarely onto the desk of the President of the United States. It is known as the Rockefeller Initiative. 

It appears to be no coincidence that letters by and the role played in this initiative by C. B. "Scott" Jones extends Wickersham's firm contention that Jones has and will play a vital role in the disclosure by government about their involvement in the UFO/ET matter. [See PRESS KIT below.]
