Sara McClendon

Famous White House Correspondent Says It's High Time
To End the Secrecy on UFO's and Hold Congressional Hearings

Sara McClendon seemed to take a more active interest in UFO's after having been at a couple of Richard Hoagland's press conferences.

Sara is a very influential person to have on our side in getting the government to open up and tell the truth about what it knows.

In these articles she supports the efforts of Dr. Steven Greer in trying to get congressional hearings on the subject. Please let her know you support these efforts.

Washington, D.C. - Pressure is building up for Congress to give attention
to the controversy over unidentified flying objects. With scientists from
Stanford, MIT, Cornell, Princeton and elsewhere studying UFO evidence, the
controversy is now being brought out into the open and heavy secrecy
surrounding the subject is being lifted. Seminars on UFO evidence are being
held periodically throughout the country with laymen discussing the
evidence without fear of being ridiculed.

When about 30 members of Congress or their staff heard a briefing on UFOs
in April of 1997, Rep.
Dan Burton, R., Ind. chairman of the Government Reform and Oversight
Committee, displayed some
interest in the matter. His committee has received a number of letters on
the subject, according to staff member Matthew Ebert. "These letters are
treated seriously," he said. Ebert thinks there is a possibility
congressional hearings will be held.

At a May 11 hearing on human rights documents pertaining to Guatemala and
Honduras held by the
House subcommittee on Government Management Information and Technology, its
chairman Rep. Steve
Horn, R. CA, asked how the government classifies UFO documents. The two
witnesses, Lee Strickland, chief of the Information Review Group of the
Central Intelligence Agency and Steven Garfinkle, director of the Security
and Oversight Group of the National Archives, both said they thought UFO
documents should be considered as public information.

There may be economic benefits from this emerging information. Dr. Steven
Greer, an emergency
room physician, who for eight years has briefed and been briefed by
government and U.N. officials on the subject of unidentified objects in
U.S. airspace, is convinced that the materials and technology of UFOs carry
enormous benefits. For example, he says their energy creating apparatus
does not use internal combustion.

Greer asserts the financial and environmental cost of exploiting oil and
gas to service 6 billion people worldwide can be dramatically reduced.
Large scale energy production derived from UFO technology would reverse
environmental damage and save hundreds of billions of dollars annually in
direct costs.

Dr. Greer is the International Director of the Center for the Study of
Extraterrestrial Intelligence and leads a working team of around 200
composed of CSETI members and associates, government employee witnesses,
consultants and government contacts. Their hope is to get congress to hold
hearings and take testimony from witnesses. He has explained his
conclusions to a number of congressional members.

A national petition utilizing the Internet and calling for congressional
hearings was launched last year by another group, Stargate International
out of Tucson, Arizona. It has accumulated 20,000+ names to be presented to
congress.  A million signatures are sought.

Greer is aware that many employees of the government keep secret facts
which they have obtained
about UFOs. He feels it is unconstitutional for government to bottle up
information of this importance.  He would like to see UFO's openly
discussed and covered widely in the press.

For some years the belief has been widespread there is in the public domain
a presidential executive order forbidding government employees from talking
about UFOs. Dr. Greer is not aware of any such an executive order but
indicated concern that secret executive orders have been issued and not
disclosed to Congress or the public. Such secret orders would make it
difficult for people to learn more about UFOs.  From the White House it was
learned that a check of executive orders going back to the early eighteen
thirties shows none has been issued on this subject. Surprising is the
growing number of citizens showing an interest in finding out more about
UFOs. Seminars are being held around the country every week with as many as
five and six hundred in attendance.

The following is a March 30, 1998 Press Release on the subject by Ms.

March 30th, 1998

Washington, D.C. -- Unidentified Flying Objects, a term given for many
years to unexplained sightings of craft in the skies over every state in
the Union, are actual visitors from other worlds, believe a community of
scientists and technicians employed by government.

The real danger to the U.S. and perhaps this whole planet is the government
has placed such a heavy blanket of secrecy upon this issue. So much
secrecy, those in government who have knowledge showing UFOs are
identifiable feel the subject cannot be discussed by those in the know
without serious repercussions. Others are afraid their friends and
co-workers will think they are crazy if they even so much as insinuate that
UFOs are identifiable as manned craft from outside the earth. This
particularly applies to newspaper editors and publishers, reporters and
analysts. Thus the U.S. is denying itself the chance to learn more about
UFOs or to encourage research despite the fact the U. S. stands to gain
from such discussions.

Not publicized but true is that the Clinton administration, soon after
coming to office, had many briefings on the subject. Laurance Rockefeller
provided the information for the President and Mrs. Clinton. Others
provided documents and verbal briefings to presidential advisors Jack
Gibbons (science), Bruce Lindsay (personal), Anthony Lake (national
security) and Vice President Albert Gore. About the same time a three hour
briefing was given by Dr. Steven Greer to the sitting Director of the CIA,
Admiral Woolsey.

Subsequently, Clinton instructed Webster Hubbell, when naming him to the
position of Associate Attorney General at the Justice Department, that he
wanted him to investigate and report back to him on two things,
circumstances surrounding the death of President John F. Kennedy, and the
existence of UFOs. Hubbell, despite his position and the presidential
imprimatur, was boxed in at Justice Department and never was able to find
out. All of this was disclosed in Hubbell's memoir Friends in High Places.

Now the lid on UFOs is gradually coming off. There is a national drive
underway to get one million signatures on a petition calling for an open
Congressional hearing for government employee witnesses. Dr. Steven Greer,
Director of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence
(CSETI), devotes most of his time seeking disclosure of government evidence
proving the existence of craft manned by non-humans. Another who feels that
positive proof exists within government, is Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso
(retired), who reveals in a recent book, The Day After Roswell, that he was
in charge of the Roswell files during his tenure as head of the Army's
Foreign Technology Division. He states unequivocally that these files
confirm the crash which occurred at Roswell, New Mexico was an alien space
craft. This completely refutes the Air Force denials and subsequent
explanations. Corso says that the crashed vehicle was studied and proved to
be manufactured of materials unknown as to source and usage in this
country. In time, he says, this and other UFOs provided technologies which
were "worked into the commercial world via front companies." Incidentally
he vouches for the fact that this has proven to be a valuable contribution
to U.S. aircraft design and other commercial products.

After the Roswell incident, the Air Force replied to reporters' inquiries
that this was all part of research using weather balloons and other
equipment. Corso and hundreds of others who work or have worked in secret
defense and scientific agencies, are willing to swear under oath that alien
craft are repeatedly penetrating our airspace.

Whenever the military agencies are asked to look into this matter further,
the answer is always the same - "We do not investigate UFOs."
