Jack Shulman, president of American Computer Company, never seems at a loss when it comes to stirring up conversation on the net. While controversy swirls around his several recent claims of astounding "alien-based" technology such as the "transcapacitor" (see CNI News, February 1, 1998), Shulman has now launched off on a new tangent by posting an open letter to President Clinton (http://www.accpc.com/openreward.htm). In the letter, Shulman first "strongly recommends" that Clinton change policy on UFO matters. Then he offers a million dollars for information that leads to "the public viewing of an Extra-Terrestrial Space Craft."
The letter, dated February 23, 1998 and addressed to "HON. PRESIDENT WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON," opens with a reminder that President Clinton, in a recent public appearance, answered a question from a young person regarding the alleged UFO crash at Roswell by denying that such an event ever happened.
Shulman twice refers to the young person as a Russian girl. To the best of our knowledge here at CNI News, the incident referred to by Shulman involved an Irish child, not a Russian; and the questioner was a boy, not a girl. (If any reader can show us reliable information to the contrary, please do.)
But Shulman carries on with gusto. After "strongly recommending" that Clinton change his official policy regarding Pentagon knowledge of UFOs, he comes to the big offer: One million dollars to "the first person who provides us confidential information which leads to the exposure of the whereabouts and leads to the public viewing of an Extra-Terrestrial Space Craft... such as may be in the possession of the United States Department of Defense, the United States Army, United States Air Force, The Pentagon, or any other Agency or Organization of the United States Government."
An interesting and potentially important question arises here, brought to the attention of CNI News by leading Roswell researcher Stanton Friedman. "Shulman may be breaking the law by offering this reward," Friedman says. "It's a felony to solicit the release or transfer of classified information to people without proper clearance or need to know. It's a felony to offer money for this sort of thing. It's probably tantamount to soliciting treason."
CNI News defers to legal experts for further opinion on this point and welcomes comment from qualified sources.
