Delivery of the Petition Calling for Issuance of a Presidential UFOIA Proclamation:

TO: Hon. George W. Bush
President, United States of America
The White House
Washington, DC 20500

FROM: Larry W. Bryant
3518 Martha Custis Drive
Alexandria, VA 22302

DATE: July 23, 2001

(1) With their 27 electronic signatures now entered upon subject petition, citizens from all across North America -- representing all walks of life, from tradesmen and students to government personnel and professional specialists -- are requesting that you take all appropriate action toward fulfilling their plea as expressed in the text of the petition.

(2) Circulated during the period March 23, 2001 -- July 23, 2001, via the Internet website of, the petition presented the following background information:

SUMMARY: First published on Oct. 10, 1981, in the now-defunct New York City newspaper "The News World," this proclamation originally was drafted for Ronald Reagan's issuance. Now, it appears in updated form below (as the heart of this petition)....

Presidential UFOpoliticking extends all the way back to Harry Truman (whose alleged role in forming "Majestic-12," a panel of high-ranking military-industrial experts secretly convened to exploit UFO/E.T. technology, sparks debate even today). And most of us know about Jimmy Carter's prepresidential encounter with a nighttime UFO, followed by his campaign promise to work for greater freedom of official UFO information. But the ensuing moderate-profile UFOlogical authority in the White House was epitomized by Ronald Reagan, who apparently had a fondness for alluding to alien contact/invasion/interaction. Now, with UFOlogically aware George W. Bush's ascension to Washington, we've come full circle.

(3) Here's the text of the petition:

TEXT OF PETITION: We, the undersigned citizens, ever mindful that full freedom of UFO information should be the rule rather than the exception, hereby petition Pres. George W. Bush to issue the following "Presidential Proclamation on Greater UFO Freedom of Information and Accountability":

The Presidential UFOIA Proclamation:


1. Since 1969 (with the formal declassification and public availability of the archives known as USAF Project Blue Book records), and since the advent of the amended U. S. Freedom of Information Act (which has been instrumental in the public release of non-Blue Book-related UFO documentation possessed by various agencies), the American public has been able to exercise, to a limited degree, its right-to-know as regards official UFO research.

2. The access limitation is due in part to the reluctance of certain agencies to admit to their possession of UFO-related records, and in part to certain agencies' censorship of such records under their interpretation of the FOIA exemptions.

3. At this state in the federal government's role in UFO research, it is more pertinent than ever that the government's position in this societal issue be fully understood by members of the federal government and the general public. That position is simple: the reported Unidentified Flying Objects represent no threat to the nation's security; the general public should look to the private sector, not to the government, for the potential of further research into the UFO phenomenon.


4. Without a formal, official research program to collect, analyze, and disseminate UFO-encounter reports, the federal government must yield to the efforts of privately funded researchers in this field.

5. For these private researchers to pursue their quest they must have adequate resources -- including any funds that might be available from government sources. But equally important to the success of their voluntary undertaking is the cooperation of government agencies and officials who have participated in official research.

6. That cooperation must include total declassification and public release of any UFO-related records currently being withheld from public view. It also must include the public availability of all UFO information that might come into the government's possession in the future.


7. Now, therefore, I, George W. Bush, president of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim the U. S. government's affirmation of greater freedom of UFO information, accountability, and expression. In so doing, I --

-- Order that any currently classified UFO-related records undergo immediate review for declassification and public display;

-- Prohibit the future classification/censorship/withholding of any UFO-related records unless the U. S. president personally can be assured that such action is in the nation's best interests;

-- Release all former and current military-intelligence and operations personnel (including civilian/contract employees) from their oaths of secrecy as regards their hard-core UFO knowledge.

8. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this _ _ _ day of _ _ _ , in the year of our Lord _ _ _ _.

[LWB Note (11/30/01): Now that four months have passed with no response whatever from any official of the Executive Branch, how will history judge this deafening silence? As a profoundly lost opportunity for our self-government to be more responsive and accountable to us, the people? Or, as a signal that we citizens need to intensify our call for action during the coming months?]
