US President Briefed By Phoenix Scientists - Something More

It would appear that the US President has been briefed by Phoenix scientists about the discovery of something more "provocative" than the discovery of water existing on the Martian surface. This news comes just as the Thermal and Evolved Gas Analyzer (TEGA) confirmed experimental evidence for the existence of water in the Mars regolith on Thursday. Whilst NASA scientists are not claiming that life once existed on the Red Planet's surface, new data appears to indicate the "potential for life" more conclusively than the TEGA water results. Apparently these new results are being kept under wraps until further, more detailed analysis can be carried out, but we are assured that this announcement will be huge…

So why is there all this secrecy? According to scientists in communication with Aviation Week & Space Technology, the next big discovery will need to be mulled over for a while before it is announced to the world. In fact, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory science team for the MECA wet-chemistry instrument that made these undisclosed findings were kept out of the July 31st news conference (confirming water) so additional analysis could be carried out, avoiding any questions that may have revealed their preliminary results. They have also made the decision to discuss the results with the Bush Administration's Presidential Science Advisor's office before a press conference between mid-August and early September.

I would not get your hopes up that they discovered life, either macro or microbal. They have probably discovered something that support the idea that Mars could have once supported life.

In 2000, NASA kept gullies, which may have been created by recent water-activity, discovered by the Mars Global Surveyor under wraps until the President could be briefed.

Grow up, I didn't post this to be "the first". I checked back to the article date and didn't notice any threads in this forum about it. It's a big mistake to assume your personal motivations explain the actions of others.
