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 dexterous political influence on Capitol Hill - even bother to make such a politically 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.
