The UK on Key Issues --------------------
2. (S//NF) The Secretary’s meetings with PM Gordon Brown and Foreign Secretary David Miliband likely will focus on the following key issues:
-- Gary McKinnon Extradition Case - The PM will likely raise with the Secretary (as he has with the Ambassador) the extradition case of Gary McKinnon. McKinnon is a 43-year old computer hacker with Asperger’s Syndrome who is wanted for prosecution in the U.S.; he is accused of hacking into U.S. government systems in 2001 and 2002. McKinnon has gained enormous popular sympathy in his appeal against extradition; the UK’s final decision is pending. The case has also caused public criticism of the U.S.-UK extradition treaty. In August, PM Brown, in a one-on-one meeting with the Ambassador, proposed a deal: that McKinnon plead guilty, make a statement of contrition, but serve any sentence of incarceration in the UK. Brown cited deep public concern that McKinnon, with his medical condition, would commit suicide or suffer injury in imprisoned in a U.S. facility. The Ambassador has raised this proposal with AG Holder and would be happy to brief the Secretary in more detail.
After almost five years the Freedom of Information Act request number 2006-0544-F dealing with the 50th birthday party for John Podesta received a “Case Closed” evaluation from the Clinton Library. In a letter dated November 3, 2010 Dana Simmons, Supervisory Archivist at the Clinton Library stated, “… the 84 photographs and 1 videotape which you appealed from FOIA 2006-0544-F, all material remains restricted in compliance with FOIA or PRA that specify what material can be released to the public.”
The restriction used to withhold the material was a P6/b(6)- unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, even though the main focus of the FOIA was photos of public government officials who normally do not plead personal privacy, especially for events that occur inside the White House as this one did.
Just added to The Presidents UFO Website is a scan of Secretary of the Airforce, Sheila E. Widnall's, original letter releasing the security oath surrounding those with knowledge of the Roswell incident. Dated 'May 19 1994', the letter states...
As you may know, the General Accounting Office (GAO) has institued an audit that, among other things, seeks to fully explain the clains that the US Government recovered an alien spacecraft near Roswell, NM, in July 1947 and since that time, has covered up that fact. In an effort to assist the GAO, the Air Force initiated a detailed independent review of our records pertaining to this claim. Your name has been prominently mentioned in regard to this matter.
The bearer of this letter, Colonel Richard L. Weaver, Director, Security and Special Program Oversight is heading this review on my behalf. Colonel Weaver has a TOP SECRET security clearance and is authorized access to all Air Force special access programs. If you have information that you feel may be classified you may share it with Colonel Weaver for this official Air Force purpose, without violating any security agreement you previously made. Clearance information or questions should be addressed to Colonel Tim Kinnan, my Military Assistant, at (703) 697-7378.
I encourage your full cooperation to help the Air Force officially resolve this controversial matter. I appreciate your continued service to the Air Force and thank you in advance for your help.
The Kavli Royal Society International Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell Buckinghamshire MK16 9JJ, UK
This beautiful Georgian country house, set in 80 acres, oozing tranquillity, was an idyllic and suitably impressive location for the grand theme of the Royal Society’s satellite meeting on the 4th and 5th of October 2010, organised by Dr Martin Dominik, University of St Andrews and Professor John Zarnecki, from The Open University.
Speakers and panellists were drawn from various countries, fields and groups, including SETI, NASA, Space Law, Geochemistry, Ecology, Planetary Sciences, Astronomy, Theology, Literature, History, Microwave sciences, Anthropology, Archaeology Linguist specialists, Space Technology, Evolutionary Developmental Systems Theorists, to name some, and I am sure I have not covered all the disciplines gathered. Some delegates also came from related areas such as Astrobiology. I was there as an observer, under the flag of Exopolitics, http://www.exopolitics.org. founded by Dr. Michael Salla PhD., 2005, to address serious questions arising from the social, diplomatic, political, economical and technical implications of an extra terrestrial presence on Earth, a field gaining ground world wide; the UK node is run by David Griffin http://www.exopolitics.org.uk.
Steven Spielberg is obsessed with UFOs. Indeed, judging by the success of his alien movies to date, his obsession is infectious. Perhaps more so than any other filmmaker, Spielberg has moulded our perceptions of otherworldly visitors. Films such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and E.T.: The Extraterrestrial (1982) abound with iconic imagery seared into the minds of millions: a mothership’s miraculous ascension at Devil’s Tower; a boy and his fugitive friend from the stars cycling in silhouette across the face of the moon. Even Spielberg’s less memorable alien movies – War of the Worlds (2005) and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) – have enjoyed enormous success at the worldwide box-office, raking in some $1.4 billion between them.
Although the 63 year old has donned his director’s cap for just four alien-themed movies, his role as a producer has long seen him neck-deep in extraterrestrial entertainment. Spielberg’s credits to date include, Batteries Not Included (1987), the Men in Black franchise (1997 -), the epic alien abduction mini-series Taken (2002) and the Transformers franchise (2007 -); he is also closely involved in the development of four projects due in 2011: the alien invasion series Fallen Skies; the ‘Sci-fi-Western’ Cowboys and Aliens; the much anticipated Super 8, the plot for which features Area 51, the US Air Force and an escaped alien entity; and the ‘aliens in high school’ thriller, I Am Number Four.
