Obama: 'no direct contact with aliens yet'

Posted on Sunday, 14 February, 2016 | Comment icon 86 comments

What does the US President know about extraterrestrial life ? Image Credit: The White House
The US President commented on extraterrestrial contact during a television interview with a six-year-old.
It's not every day that you get to ask President Obama about the possibilities of extraterrestrial life but for Macey Hensley, a six-year-old who appeared on a recent episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, an interview with the Commander-in-Chief offered up a golden opportunity.

Introduced as the show's 'Presidential expert', young Macey asked Obama if there really was a "Book of Secrets" to which he humorously replied "that's a secret."

When the six-year-old asked him whether or not humans had ever made contact with alien life he responded by saying "we haven’t actually made direct contact with aliens yet."

"When we do, I’ll let you know."

"No direct contact" seems a bit Clintonian. But he was probably just trying to disguise the fact that he hadn't a clue. My own reading is that if there were Aliens, it'd be used to justify some huge government program. No program, no Aliens.

No "direct" contact with aliens. So does that mean we've had indirect contact with aliens?

Quite right. Eisenhower's 1954 Meeting With Extraterrestrials Nice! thanks for sharing. "In December 1953, the Joint Chiefs of Staff issued Army-Navy-Air Force publication 146 that made the unauthorized release of information concerning UFOs a crime under the Espionage Act, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. " I wonder if that can be verified by anyone

I don't think you can read too much into his words. Even if he plain just said "yes or no" who's to say it's truth.

You can't believe anything he says, of all people.

"DON'T FEED THE ANIMALES " ............ If we look at earth like a Zoo, then perhaps that would explain why E.T.'s look so small ...... because they are looking at the monkeys, and bringing their kids to the Zoo.

Aliens may exist, because I have always thought that Sophia Loren was out of this world......
