My first reaction was, “whoa! This is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!”, but now is slightly more subdued.
To get a better understanding I decided to follow the links provided by the original author of the article, Arjun Walia. Now, I really dislike politics to the ‘nth degree – so reading these articles was like sticking a hot poker in my eyes. But read them, I did. 😉
The short story is that President Obama did not appoint him with the title of “UFO Disclosure Advocate” nor is that anywhere in his job description. Mr. Podesta is going to be acting as Councillor to Obama – and he has (in 2002) advocated for the disclosure of UFO documentation by the Clinton Administration. So I think the author is drawing well-deserved conclusions between the fact that Podesta has mentioned UFO disclosure of past incidences and that he might go ahead with that agenda now that he will be back in the White House.
Overall I think it is a very good article, great videos, a possible consequential outcome – and definitely worth a share.

Craft of Unknown Origin – Award Winning UFO Documentary
This is an award winning short film, winner of Best Short Video Category at the 2012 International UFO Congress.
“Craft of Unknown Origin” is a 30-minute documentary that examines the subject of UFOs. Drawing from a number of credible UFO witnesses and UFO reports, the video is crammed with diagrams, as well as 2D and 3D animation, that accurately visualize the strange vehicles that these witnesses report seeing.
Most notably, the makers of this video worked closely with Sgt. James Penniston, U.S. Air Force (ret.), to accurately visualize, for the first time anywhere, the UFO craft that he saw. Sgt. Penniston is one of the principle witnesses to the celebrated Rendlesham Forest UFO event of 1980. Through animated video, viewers will see what Penniston saw as he describes his feelings and actions of that night. Often referred to as “England’s Roswell,” the Redlesham forest incident remains one of the most well-documented UFO events ever.
Respected UFO author Leslie Kean (UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record) is also interviewed. Listen as she shares her insight about UFOs, cutting through the sensational reporting of the subject to get to the indisputable facts.
Award-winning G. M. Productions is the production company of San Antonio animator Mike Fisher. Mike has been creating animations and videos for over 10 years. His videos have won awards at film festivals all across the country.
AngelicView:This article is by Richard Schiffman of The Huffington Post. I have seen the “FBI Vault” and I have seen this document to which he refers (linked to in the article). While I saw it perhaps about a year ago, now it is the most-viewed document in “The Vault”, and it has to do with the UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico. There are a bunch of great links in this article for those who are interested in the subject.

Some years back my friend Alan Steinfeld and I had dinner with Edgar Mitchell. Mitchell, as those of us who are old enough to remember, was the lunar module pilot of Apollo 14 in 1971, and the sixth person to walk on the Moon.
For Alan and myself, Mitchell is also the founder of a group that we have been involved with for years, the Institute of Noetic Sciences. IONS is an organization dedicated to exploring the shared ground between spirituality and science. Mitchell started IONS due in large part to a transformational experience on his way back from the moon which he described in an interview with Ascent Magazine:
“The spacecraft was rotating to maintain the thermal balance of the Sun… Every two minutes, with every rotation, we saw the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun as they passed by the window. The 360-degree panorama of the heavens was awesome and the stars are ten times as bright and, therefore, ten times as numerous than you could ever see on a high mountaintop on a clear night.
It was overwhelmingly magnificent… I realized that the molecules of my body and the molecules of the spacecraft had been manufactured in an ancient generation of stars. It wasn’t just intellectual knowledge — it was a subjective visceral experience accompanied by ecstasy — a transformational experience.”
Former UK Police Office Gary Heseltine now spends his time tracking and compiling the reports of law enforcement officials across the UK in regards to UFOs, extra terrestrial activities and unexplained phenomena. Heseltine says that the caliber of his witnesses should bring more prominence to the stories of the incidents he is tracking.
Dr. Robert Wood says that to help most accurately explain UFO and Extra Terrestrial phenomena, he has tried to dedicate his exploration to authenticating important (and in some cases Classified) documents that hold direct proof of incidents. Here’s Wood’s explanations of at least one major document he has studied
Day 4 Ends With Sen. Mike Gravel Outlining A Plan To Get United Nations To Reexamine UFOs
Gravel says it only takes one country to make a stand and to get the United Nations to open the door again to possibly creating a new agency to look into UFOs.
“Another hearing like this one, or whether it’s in the Congress, probably won’t advance our goals all that much. But there’s no reason why, with the various countries represented here — with the various scholars and military officers — that we wouldn’t try to, within our own communities, to get them to endorse a very simple, straightforward resolution, calling upon the [U.N.] General Assembly.
“All we would need is one country, but I think that we have several countries from South America, and certainly, this group here might have enough influence to get their government to go on record, and to field a resolution creating an agency of the United Nations…specifically with the goal to organize a global conference — not a hearing — of the scholars and scientists that would come together and fund it — both from public and private sources — so that, within a couple of years, we could convene a conference that would command the attention of the world.
“I have no doubt that we could field that kind of a resolution and get it adopted. We can elevate it right to where it really belongs because it’s a global issue — We could elevate it right to the General Assembly of the United Nations.”
AngelicView: This 17 minute video was presented to the retired Congress at the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure Friday morning (May 3rd).
He is a former high level CIA. He talks about visiting Area 51 and seeing the space ship from the Roswell crash. He participated in an interview of a grey alien being. He also tells about “men in black” who paid him a visit.
CHD organizer Stephen Bassett announced to the ex-congressional panel that a 15-minute video was about to be shown of a 77-year-old man man, in very bad health, who wanted to take the opportunity to reveal a story of what happened to him while he worked for the CIA under Pres. Dwight Eisenhower in 1958.
Bassett: “In a sense, this video represents the many individuals out there who could not come before a committee like this, who want to talk, but it’s difficult. The vast majority of individuals who have interacted with this issue while working for the government, going back to the 40s, took the information that they had to their grave and did not talk if they were told not to talk.
