In September of 2011 Paradigm Research Group submitted a Disclosure Petition to the White House’s “We the People” project. It was one of the very first petitions submitted. The petition required 5,000 signatures to receive a response from the White House and received 12,000. [Note: the “We the People” project was terminated by the present administration.]
The response from the Obama administration came on November 4, 2011. This response was the first time the executive branch has put a position in writing on the extraterrestrial presence issue and was a milestone. A second Disclosure petition was submitted on February 23, 2012 designed to draw attention to the Rockefeller Initiative (1993-1996). Three more White House petitions were submitted addressing nuclear weapons tampering, the actions of CIA officer Chase Brandon and the Roswell events of July 1947.
The initial Disclosure Petition is shown below along with the response from the White House.
