Richardson To Investigate Roswell UFOs
Bill Richardson promises that, in the unlikely event he’s elected president, he will get to the bottom of the Roswell UFO cover-up.
If he wins his bid for the White House, Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson may be just the man to get to the bottom of the 60-year-old Roswell UFO mystery.
Answering questions at a townhall meeting Friday, a Dell employee asked Richardson about the 1947 incident in which many people still believe a flying saucer landed near the eastern New Mexico town. “I’ve been in government a long time, I’ve been in the cabinet, I’ve been in the Congress and I’ve always felt that the government doesn’t tell the truth as much as it should on a lot of issues,” said Richardson, who is governor of New Mexico. “When I was in Congress I said (to the) Department of Defense … ‘What is the data? What is the data you have?’ ”
He was told that the records were classified. “That ticked me off,” he said, as the crowd laughed.
“What do you want me to do? You want me to open up all those files?” he asked the alien enthusiast, who answered that he did. “I’ll work with you on that.”
Presumably, Dennis Kucinich would be his running mate.
While I suppose whatever records the government has on a 60-year-old UFO investigation should be opened to the public at this point, I seriously doubt that doing so will satisfy the people who actually care about it. Indeed, as Dale Franks observes, “it just looks to me like a way to misdirect attention from the really important issue of getting to the bottom of that whole Bigfoot deal.”
Further, one has to wonder if working with some guy on answering his flying saucer questions is really the best use of a president’s time. Well, okay, we probably don’t need to wonder.
