The White House has officially responded to the Alien Petitions asking the government to disclose and acknowledge that aliens have visited Earth and any intentional withholding of government interaction with extraterrestrials. Phil Larson from the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy made the following statement:
“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 Petition for immediately disclosing any government knowledge of and communication with extraterrestrials was signed by 5,387 people. The second petition which request formal acknowledgement from the White House that extraterrestrials have engaged the human race was signed by 12,078 people. Currently opinion polls show that more then 50% of the American people believe there is some kind of extraterrestrial presence and more then 80% believe there is a government coverup of some kind about the alien phenomenon. One of the petitions state that hundreds of military and government agency witnesses have come forward with their testimony confirming extraterrestrial presence.
Larson stressed that there is no facts or credible evidence of any extraterrestrial presence on Earth. He also said that even though many scientist have come to the same conclusion about alien presence on earth the odds are fairly high of life somewhere else in the Universe but the chance of them making any kind of contact with humans is fairly low given the distances involved. Larson said these facts don’t mean that we are not searching out this extraterrestrial life we just have not found any evidence yet.
Larson went on to reference programs like SETI which was once a NASA funded project but is now privately funded has an ear out for any signals from intelligent extraterrestrials but have not found any yet. Also the Kepler spacecraft which is searching for Earth-like planets in the habitable zones around other stars. But regarding any evidence of alien life all anyone has to date is simply statistics and speculation. And the fact is that we have no credible evidence to prove any existence here on earth of any extraterrestrial presence.
