We recently grabbed this from
the depths of JeffRense.com's smorgasbord
of Fortean nonsense, and we had to share it. What follows is this
article, in its entirety:
Actual CNN Transcript
Of Gov. Bush Promising
From Charles Huffer <email@example.com>
To Randy Kitchur <firstname.lastname@example.org>
(Please send this to all persons who
may be interested. There seems to be a great deal of confusion about what
I am the UNIDENTIFIED CITIZEN on the
CNN transcript and the 5TH MAN on the Nightline transcript. The Washington
Post article has my name as it appears on my card, which I gave to the
reporter who interviewed me immediately after I had my first exchange with
The websites are still up and running
as I write this. Here they are:
On the CNN transcript is the following:
KARL: "...Along the way, someone
thought Cheney's impressive resume would help Bush tell the truth about
UFOs." (This was pure speculation on Karl's part and was wrong. CAH)
UNIDENTIFIED CITIZEN: (That is me,
Charles A. Huffer, MUFON State Section Director) "Half the public
believes that they are real. Would you finally tell us what the hell is going
on?" (The full exchange of words with Gov. Bush was evidently not
recorded. I had a recorder on but it was too far away for clarity. I did get
Bush's reply, however.)
GOV. GEORGE W. BUSH (R-TX),
"Sure, I will. This man knows. He
was Secretary of Defense and was a great one."
CNN has made a serious error here. They
have attributed some of my words to Gov. Bush. Here is the way it was:
Bush: "Sure. I will."
Charles A. Huffer: (Cheney had in the
meantime walked over to us and extended his hand to me.) "This man knows.
He was Secretary of Defense."
Bush: "And was a great one."
Several minutes later, I again saw Gov.
Bush in the hall. He recognized me immediately and unsolicited said
approximately the following:
Gov. Bush: "It will be the first
thing he (pointing to Cheney) will do. He'll get right on it."
Charles A. Huffer: "Will, will you
Gov. Bush: "Yes Sir."
I have this exchange on audio tape. As
far as I am aware, no news organization recorded it.
So, Bush DID promise to tell us what
the hell is going on, if he gets to be president.
Please pass this around so that people
will know what actually was said on 28 July 2000 by Gov. George W. Bush in
Springdale, AR. Now we must help Gov. Bush be elected president.

So, if Mr. Huffner gets his
wish, all the UFOnuts are going to campaign for Bush and Cheney. And for
no better reason other than a campaign promise (on the fly, no less) to one
guy that Cheney never responded to (at least according to the article above).
How does Mr. Huffner know about Bush's sincerity?
Well, it will be the easiest
campaign promise to keep, and the fastest way to win a batch of voters.
After all, the only thing he has to do is stand in front of a podium and
