President Obama Says Data on Roswell and UFOs is “Disappointing”

Throughout the last few years of his presidency, Barack Obama has likely said more about UFOs than any other U.S. commander in chief, at least as far as public statements go. In equal measure, it has been during the years of Obama’s tenure in office that former President Bill Clinton has been most vocal on the subject, famously having been asked about it in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2014. Kimmel addressed the same issue again earlier this year when Obama appeared on his program, to which Obama expressed, “I can’t reveal anything,” humorously chiding the talk show host that he would never be president, since looking for UFO files would be “the first thing that you would do.” Obama further joked that, “The aliens won’t let it happen. You’d reveal all their secrets, and they exercise strict control over us.” No doubt, someone out there was listening during this exchange (perhaps several, in fact), actually read into this statement, despite the obvious humor being espoused. But among the many mentions of the UFO subject made by Obama, perhaps a more serious — if not particularly revelatory or interesting one — was made during an interview with HBO’s Bill Simmons for GQ, in which Obama called inquiries into the subject “disappointing.” Read More: Mysterious Universe
