While the Initiative itself was not successful, it did lead to engagement of the UFO/ET issue by Associate Attorney General Webster Hubbell, Congressman Steven Schiff, John Podesta, Governor Bill Richardson and others right up until the present time.
The nearly four-year initiative included 1) strategy meetings of researchers held at Rockefeller's JY Ranch in Colorado; 2) meetings between Rockefeller and President Clinton and Hillary Clinton at the JY Ranch; 3) the commissioning of numerous reports and white papers, including an extensive study titled "Unidentified Flying Objects Briefing Document: The Best Available Evidence" by Don Berliner and Antonio Huneeus; 4) document requests and searches within the Clinton administration; 5) an important symposium, "When Cosmic Cultures Meet"; 6) considerable correspondence between public and private entities, and much more.
