Here's how Valerie Jarrett, co-chair of the Obama-Biden Transition Project explains it:
It's called the Citizen's Briefing Book, and it's an online forum where you can share your ideas, and rate or offer comments on the ideas of others.
The best-rated ones will rise to the top, and after the Inauguration, we'll print them out and gather them into a binder like the ones the President receives every day from experts and advisors. If you participate, your idea could be included in the Citizen's Briefing Book to be delivered to President Obama.
Right now, the top three issues are "Bullet Trains & Light Rail" (15,800 points), "Ending Marijuana Prohibition" (13,260 points) and "An end to the government sponsored abstinence education to be replaced by an introduction of age appropriate sex education" (11,900 points).
New Mexico-specific priorities come a little further down the list. For example, so far there are solar energy projects in New Mexico (80 points) and autism awareness (suggested by the Autism/Aspergers Center of Excellence in Albuquerque - 10 points)...but by far, the best rated New Mexico-centric idea is "End the UFO Coverup!"
The submission author's letter to Obama after the jump.
Here's what the submission's author, "nathan" had to say:
Dear President-Elect Barack Obama,
I believe that you are the best person in the best position to complete this task. You have many people whom you have appointed or who are aiding the transition who are sympathetic to the idea of making knowledge about UFO/Extraterrestrial involvement on our planet known to the public. John Podesta the co-chair for the Obama-Bided transition office is a known UFO enthusiast, who could talk to you in depth about the subject. Your secretary of commerce Bill Richardson is also, in-the-know and has written a book about the Roswell incident and other UFO sightings in New Mexico.
Aside from the people close to you who have knowledge on the subject the reason why I believe that you would make an excellent candidate to disclose the existence of UFOs and ETs is as follows. Being African American will not only help the Blacks in America feel more at ease during disclosure but Blacks around the world as well. Your connection to the Asian peoples through your stay in Indonesia, will also help them to feel more at ease. And last but not least your european heritage will help the white populations around the world feel more at ease.
Your life experiences as a "global citizen," connections to billions of peoples of different races around the world, the people in your close company and your Position as the President of the United States of American, in my mind, make you the best candidate for the Job, and this is how I feel you should go about it.
- demand and receive a full briefing by his military services and intelligence agencies regarding the extraterrestrial presence and related phenomena
- support convening congressional hearings to take testimony from scores of former military and agency employees regarding extraterrestrial phenomena
- formally acknowledge to the American people the extraterrestrial presence
- Release into the public domain extraterrestrial derived technologies, secretly studied and reverse engineered for six decades, and now essential to overcome the environmental, economic and societal challenges of our time.
