UFO Researcher and author Grant Cameron presented stories and documentation of U.S. Presidents and their involvement with UFO phenomena. He also discussed various presidential candidates and their UFO related experiences. Many of the current candidates, when asked about UFOs are issuing a standard response, he noted. For instance, after Dennis Kucinich was asked about his UFO sighting, he said that yes, UFOs are real, but he doesn't believe they are related to ETs traveling here.Bill and Hillary Clinton were especially fascinated by UFOs, said Cameron, who has been studying documents recently released from the Clinton Library. In a speech Bill Clinton made in Hong Kong in 2005, he said that if secret documents about UFOs at Roswell and Area 51 do exist, they'd been concealed from him. Cameron speculated that secrets could be kept compartmentalized in black budget programs. Secrecy is maintained because there is fear if the truth got out there'd be a "market meltdown," he said, adding that Kissinger reportedly called UFOs "the biggest hot potato of all time."The tale that Nixon showed Jackie Gleason alien bodies in the back of a hanger at Homestead AFB was confirmed by Gleason's wife, Cameron reported. He also shared that Einstein purportedly sent a letter to Truman, asking him to rescind his UFO shootdown policy in 1952. Biography:Grant Cameron became involved in Ufology in 1975 with personal sightings of an object which locally became known as Charlie Red Star. The sightings occurred in Carman, Manitoba. In the past few years Cameron has turned his research interests to the involvement and actions of the President of the United States in the UFO problem. He has made 20+ trips to the National Archives and most of the various Presidential archives looking for presidential UFO material.One highlight of his presidential UFO research was the chance to question Vice-President Dick Cheney on his knowledge of the UFO subject. Another highlight of the presidential UFO research was a FOIA to the White House Office of Science and Technology which yielded 1,000 pages of UFO documents from the Clinton administration. Many of these findings have been written up on his website, www.presidentialufo.com. At present Cameron is awaiting almost 100 FOIA requests from the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, related to the UFO related actions and policies inside the two Presidential terms of Bill Clinton. WikipediaAn unidentified flying object, often abbreviated UFO or U.F.O., is an unusual apparent anomaly in the sky that is not readily identifiable to the observer as any known object, often associated with extraterrestrial life or government-related conspiracy theories.The acronym "UFO" was coined by Capt. Edward J. Ruppelt, who headed Project Blue Book, then the USAF's official investigation of UFOs. He wrote, "Obviously the term 'flying saucer' is misleading when applied to objects of every conceivable shape and performance. For this reason the military prefers the more general, if less colorful, name: unidentified flying objects. UFO (pronounced Yoo-foe) for short."  Other phrases that were used officially and that predate the UFO acronym include "flying flapjack", "flying disc", "unexplained flying discs", "unidentifiable flying object", and "flying saucer".The phrase "flying saucer" had gained widespread attention after the summer of 1947. On June 24, a civilian pilot named Kenneth Arnold reported seeing nine objects flying in formation near Mount Rainer. Arnold timed the sighting and estimated the speed of discs to be over 1,000 mph. He described their movement like "a saucer skipped across water," leading to newspaper accounts of "flying saucers". (see Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting for details).In popular usage the term UFO came to be used to refer to alien spacecraft. and because of the public and media ridicule associated with the topic, some investigators prefer to use such terms as unidentified aerial phenomenon (or UAP)or anomalous phenomena, as in the title of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena or NARCAP.The equivalent acronym for UFO in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Italian is OVNI (Objeto Volador No Identificado, Objeto Voador No Identificado, Objet volant non identifi or Oggetto Volante Non Identificato), pronounced as one word (ov-nee).
