I for one absolutely believe the the president has no "briefing" concerning UFO's or anything of that nature.
The idea that President Truman was uninvolved and uninterested in the flying saucer situation became questionable after statements were made by General Robert B. Landry, the Air Force Aide to the President. He described how in February 1948 he was called into the Oval Office where he spoke with the President about to the continued sightings of flying saucers across the country. General Landry had just been appointed. He explained his UFO role during an oral history done for Columbia University[...]
President Truman gave General Landry instructions about reporting the flying saucer situation to him. "I was directed to report quarterly to the President after consulting with Central Intelligence people, as to whether or not any UFO incidents received by them could be considered as having any strategic threatening implications at all," stated Landry. "The report was to be made orally by me unless it was considered by intelligence to be so serious or alarming as to warrant a more detailed report in writing. During the four and one-half years in office there, all reports were made orally. Nothing of substance considered credible or threatening to the country was ever received from intelligence." (source)
Originally posted by IgnoreTheFactsI also believe that there may be nothing of substance to brief them on anyway. As disorganized as the government is (even concerning "TOP SECRET" items) I doubt there is even a mechanism in place to successfully gather all the tidbits of useless data they even have on the subject.
