"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," the statement read.
The response directs petitioners toward several projects aimed at uncovering evidence of extraterrestrial life, including the Mars Science Laboratory, the SETI Institute and the Kepler spacecraft, but states the government has "no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth."
This denial is not new of course, but what is new is that for Dr. Michael Salla, UFO researcher and former professor at American University's Center for Global Peace, government's answer is pretty consistent and HONEST.
"It's a very predictable response," he told The Daily Caller. "All government agencies have basically taken a similar line that there is no credible evidence of extraterrestrial life having visited the earth. And that's been a pretty consistent response for the past 50 years."
Dr. Salla claims that the White House's response isn't necessarily dishonest: Much of the information is classified or has been turned over to private companies. Of course, as usual, Dr. Michael Salla didin't give any evidence about all these last statements.
