The friendship of former U.S. president Bill Clinton and his predecessor, George H.W. Bush, is an interesting one and was fast to become a favorite story for the media. A staunch Republican who lost his Presidential reelection bid to a Democrat former governor of the state of Arkansas who furiously dug away at the former's perceived broken promise of "no new taxes" with comments and slogans like "it's the economy, stupid" would probably be the last pair to develop a strong kinship.
Both former Presidents have an interesting history with UFO's. It was strongly rumored that then-President Jimmy Carter, who made a public vow during his 1976 Presidential campaign to release all information he could on the subject of UFO's, asked his Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (DCI), George H.W. Bush, to be "briefed in" to all intelligence regarding UFO's and aliens. Bush promptly responded that Carter had no need-to-know, and curiosity on the part of the President did not constitute need-to-know. Bush reportedly stood his ground even through the threat of being replaced as DCI. Carter's desire to be briefed in grew from his own experiences as a witness to a UFO in Plains, Georgia while its governor. He also took the unique step of officially filing a sighting report.
President Bill Clinton brought the media spotlight full bore onto his desire to know.
During a public appearance in Belfast, Northern Ireland in November 1995, Clinton said with is usual amiable grin, "I got a letter from 13-year-old Ryan from Belfast. Now, Ryan, if you're out in the crowd tonight, here's the answer to your question. No, as far as I know, an alien spacecraft did not crash in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. And, Ryan, if the United States Air Force did recover alien bodies, they didn't tell me about it, either, and I want to know".
Could Clinton's desire to know be deeper than his amiable grin betrayed? Could that desire to know be the impetus behind his growing friendship with Bush, the former DCI reputed to be a key figure in the present relationship with extraterrestrials?
When a son aspires to the same job once held by his father, it is generally expected that the father will impart all the accumulated wisdoms and secrets about that job to his son, in the hopes that the son will excel and outshine the father. All good fathers desire for the son to be more than they were. It is reasonable to assume that the elder Bush briefed his son, soon to be U.S. President George W. Bush, on the current alien situation.
During the 2007-2008 Stephenville, Texas UFO flap, investigators with the Mutual UFO Network determined that at least one UFO deviated a short distance to the small town of Crawford, Texas, based on official Federal Aviation Administration radar transcripts obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.
It is also reasonable to assume that there was more to the deviation than readily meets the eye. A connection was made between the deviation and the fact that the then-current President owned and resided in a small ranch in Crawford, and preferred to vacation there instead of to the official Presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland.
