BREAKING: White House Statement on UFOs

I've been reading about how former Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton and current Obama advisor John Podesta recently tweeted his #1 regret of 2014, to wit:
"Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the of the UFO files.
That's great and everything, but, really, what good does it do? What good does it do to say, "For years I've been in a position to make this information public, again, but I never did, again, so sorry"...? It's just lame, and I can't understand why it's considered news.

Mr. Podesta, who apparently is known as a fan of "The X-Files," along with many other millions of people who don't necessarily give a shit about UFOs, was once quoted by Yahoo News as saying the following about revealing the contents of the White House's UFO files:
“It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it, really, because it’s right. We ought to do it, quite frankly, because the American people can handle the truth. And we ought to do it because it’s the law.”
Strong words, right? Actually, they're pretty weak when you look at them. Someone whose favorite phrase is "ought to" doesn't really convey any genuine conviction. He just likes to sound as though he does. And then there's the fact that Podesta made this statement in 2002, when he was conveniently not associated in any way with the White House, so, again... what good does it do?

Is the US government secretly tracking UFOs and secretly not telling us? Don't ask John Podesta.
I can only speculate that Mr. Podesta is in cahoots with those people who desire to make the UFO phenomenon appear as stupid as it can possibly appear to be, in order to to cast doubt on anyone and everything associated with it. What better way to do that than by pretending to be someone who supports full disclosure while not actually not doing a thing to accomplish his stated objective when he has the chance? He convinces the Richard Dolans of the world that the White House really is in possession of proof that UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin, and is withholding that information from the American public, and he keeps the idiotic #disclosure meme alive.

So, actually, I can understand why it's news...

Podesta turned himself into Dennis Kucinich, and now being "tainted" goods, is unlikely to be invited to join Hillary's campaign. It was a way of saying no to the Clintons without it being seen as a public slap in the face to Hillary. This is more probably Democratic and inside the Beltway politics, with actually little to do with UFOs per se.

Podesta has been on the record as a UFO fan for many years, yet was allowed to be Obama's "counsel to the president," which is a real thing. (I am Canadian; I had to look it up.)

> to make the UFO phenomenon appear as stupid as it can possibly appear to be

Michael Salla, exopolitics' reigning hyper-credulist, took Podesta's tweet to be confirmation that such files exist and that Obama's staff is being denied access to them!

Yeah, but Podesta became Obama's Counsel after his second Presidential campaign. He was no campaign liability. Podesta would be the target of endless Republican ridicule in any Democrat's Presidential run and singled out as a reason the candidate has poor judgement ("look who he/she picked as a top advisor"). I still think he was making himself unacceptable to duck being asked or to get unasked if he has been.

I commend you for forming a testable hypothesis!
