Time runs out on Stephen Bassett’s latest White House petition to reopen the Roswell crashed flying saucer case.
(STARpod.us) — With only 977 electronic signatures and 24,023 more needed by 10 October 2012, Paradigm Research Group founder Stephen Bassett’s latest attempt to engage the Obama White House on the topic of extraterrestrial visitors has come to an end.
Bassett has been attempting to use the White House “We the People” website to reopen long-standing questions related to government tales of unworldly visitors from somewhere “out there.”
The primary anecdotal evidence provided by Bassett to the White House website come from government officials who have gone on the record concerning their belief in a conspiracy to cover-up involvement of the U.S. government with Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (EBE or EBEN).
Lt Col. Philip Corso (USA): “I came into possession of the Roswell File. This file contained field reports, medical autopsy reports and technological debris from the crash of an extraterrestrial vehicle.”
Capt. Edgar Mitchell (USAF/NASA): “Roswell was a real incident, and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered from that crash site.”
Gov. Bill Richardson: “The mystery surrounding this crash has never been adequately explained – not by independent investigators, and not by the U.S. government.”
Chase Brandon (CIA): “It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet.”
Lt. Col. Richard French (USAF): “There were actually two crashes at Roswell.”
And to the above list we would add former CIA official Dr. Christopher Kit Green, who heard similar stories from senior government officials (see my book “Knowing the Future: The UFO Spy Games” and Mark Pilkington’s “Mirage Men” for the details).
Mr. Bassett identifies various political issues related to the alleged government cover-up, including “Government Reform, Science and Space Policy, and Technology and Telecommunications.” The serious side of all three issues is the misuse of national security to cover for government waste, fraud and abuse of secrecy. (As an example, see our story about former NSA official Tom Drake.)

At his website, Bassett noted, “The statements of these distinguished men directly contradict the White House’s written statement of October 22, 2011.”
Thank you for signing the petition asking the Obama Administration to acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence here on Earth. 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. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye … The fact is we have no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth. — Phil Larson, official White House response
According to Bassett:
The Roswell case is and has always been the weakest link in the government imposed truth embargo on the facts surrounding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. There were hundreds of witnesses, a statement of a retrieved saucer was mistakenly released on July 8, 1947 to the national news media and quickly recanted by the Army, enormous research has been done on the history of the case including interviews with 200 plus first and second hand witnesses and public awareness of the incident is almost universal.
It is for these reasons the Air Force has taken extraordinary measures over the years to blunt the impact of Roswell on the Disclosure process. Multiple explanations were given which were easily debunked by researchers. A book was commissioned — “Roswell Report: Case Closed.” A press conference was held at the Pentagon just prior to the 50th Anniversary of Roswell in 1997. No other case has generated as much overt effort by government to counter the facts. Nevertheless, fewer than 20% of the American people believe the government’s version of the Roswell, 1947 events.
It is time for a full re-investigation.
I agree with Mr. Bassett that, regardless of the true nature of the real story behind Roswell, the government has been less than forthcoming about what really happened in the desert in July 1947. A handful of stories provided by well-placed officials only adds to the intrigue.
Philip J. Corso (1915-1998) — Lt. Col. U.S. Army; WWII and Korean War Intelligence officer; Chief of the DoD’s Foreign Technology Desk; President Eisenhower’s National Security Council staff (1953–1957); Warren Commission staff (1964).
On or about July 6, 1947, while stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, I personally observed a four-foot non-human creature with bizarre-looking four-fingered hands, thin legs and feet, and an over-sized incandescent light bulb-shaped head. The eye sockets were over-sized and almond shaped and pointed down to its tiny nose … I have personally read the medical autopsy reports which refer to the autopsy of the previously described creature that I saw in 1947 at Fort Riley, Kansas … in 1961, I came into possession of what I refer to as the “Roswell File.” This file contained field reports, medical autopsy reports and technological debris from the crash an extraterrestrial vehicle in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
Dr. Edgar Dean Mitchell — Capt. U.S. Navy, NASA Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 14 (sixth man to walk on the moon); Ph.D., MIT in Aeronautics/Astronautics, recipient, Presidential Medal of Freedom (1970) and U.S. Navy Distinguished Medal, honorary doctorates from New Mexico State University, University of Akron, Carnegie Mellon University and Embry-Riddle University.
I’ve talked with people of stature — of military and government credentials and position — and heard their stories, and their desire to tell their stories openly to the public. And that got my attention very, very rapidly … The first hand experiences of these credible witnesses that, now in advanced years are anxious to tell their story, we can’t deny that, and the evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident, and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered from that crash site.

It was a vaulted area [at CIA Headquarters] and not everybody could get in … One day, I was looking around in there and reading some of the titles … And there was one box that really caught my eye. It had one word on it: “Roswell” … I took the box down, lifted the lid up, rummaged around inside it, put the box back on the shelf and said, “My god, it really happened!” [The box contained] some written material and some photographs, and that’s all I will ever say to anybody about the contents of that box … But it absolutely, for me, was the single validating moment that everything I had believed, and knew, that so many other people believed had happened, truly was what occurred. It [Roswell] was not a damn weather balloon — it was what it was billed when people first reported it … It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet … it crashed and I don’t doubt for a second that the use of the word “remains” and “cadavers” was exactly what people were talking about.
