Bill Clinton Learned 'Secret Government' Was Hiding UFO Secrets While President
Plenty of people have accused the government of withholding secrets files on UFO encounters, but if there was one person who would know the whole story, you'd expect it to be the president of the United States.
Apparently, that's not the case—according to Salon, Bill Clinton spent much of his term in office trying to get to the bottom of what other government agencies weren't telling him about UFO encounters, to the point that his associate attorney general Webster Hubbell allegedly told him that there was a secret government that was controlling info about UFOs.
Hubbell, according to his memoir, was given two key tasks by President Clinton: find out who assassinated John F. Kennedy and figure out how much the government knew about UFOs.
When Hubbell began asking questions of other agencies, he found himself blocked at every turn. After sufficient pressure, however, the director of the CIA, James Woolsey, began releasing records of the CIA's involvement in UFO investigations, including the Air Force's projects to research UFO sightings (Project SAUCER and Project SIGN).
These investigations were conducted in spite of the official government line that no research was being conducted in the aftermath of the "Roswell incident." The objective of Projects SAUCER and SIGN were to "collect, collate, evaluate, and distribute within the government all information relating to such sightings, on the premise that UFOs might be real and of national security concern."
More than just confirming that UFOs were an ongoing concern of the US government, the CIA's released reports confirmed that the CIA had a wealth of knowledge and years of records when it came to UFO research that was initially withheld from Clinton, Hubbell's explicit request to turn over all documents related to potential alien encounters.
Hubbell's memoir, Friends in High Places, deals with a lot of the intrigue and power-plays within the Clinton administration (including his own incarceration in the aftermath of the Whitewater scandal), but his description of the secrecy of UFO programs, even when it came to the president himself, seems eye-opening.
