Obama Pressed to Release UFO Files

President-elect Barack Obama has a lot on his plate: a struggling economy, two wars, international terrorist threats… and pressure from UFO enthusiasts to release government files about alien sightings. In a letter, the Extraterrestrial Phenomenon Political Action Committee, which has gathered 40,000 signatures, asked Obama to “end the six-decade truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.” Obama may also be hearing about the cause from John Podesta and Bill Richardson, who have expressed support in the past for transparency concerning the mysterious 800 million pages.
