Barack Obama might be about to reveal the ‘truth’ about UFOs

Barack Obama might be about to reveal the ‘truth’ about UFOs

Barack Obama might be about to reveal the ‘truth’ about UFOs
25 May 2016

It’s pretty fair to say that The White House has had a pretty explosive relationship with aliens up until now. At least, as far as cinematic disaster movies like Independence Day are concerned.

But a soon-to-be-heard presidential announcement, in real life, could be about to blast everything we thought we knew about UFOs right out of the water.

Before President Obama drops his mic for the final time, reports suggest that he's preparing an announcement relating to extra-terrestrial activity that's so mind-blowing it would give the large-headed alien invaders of Mars Attacks! a run for their money.

"We are going to get disclosure this year,” Stephen Bassett, executive director of US-based Paradigm Research Group, told the Daily Express. “This will be a reality… and across the front pages of newspapers across the world. ET is real."

“[This will be] the most significant news story that has ever been broken,” he added. “He will be looking at a Nobel Prize for making an announcement like that.”

The 69-year-old, who has been pushing the White House to reveal details collected by the US government on extraterrestrial life forms, is “eighty-five percent sure” Obama will reveal something outta-this-world before he locks up his presidential office for good, with Prime Minister David Cameron announcing something immediately afterwards.

Obama is under pressure to disclose the information after presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton promised to reveal similar info if she were to be inducted into the White House.

So what could he be about to reveal? What really happens inside Area 51? Who, or what, built the pyramids? Or that Men In Black was totally right, and there is a race of sugar-loving cockroaches in skin jackets living among us? Either way, we’re hoping to hear something freakin’ awesome.

 We’ll let the immortal words of Independence Day’s Captain Steven Hillier pre-emptively greet our new alien overlords: “Welcome to Earth.”
