Will Jimmy Kimmel get Obama to talk aliens?

Will Jimmy Kimmel get President Obama to talk about aliens Thursday night?

Last April, Jimmy Kimmel hosted former President Bill Clinton on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and surprised him with questions about what our government knows about the existence of aliens.

Is it possible Kimmel will try to get more answers on the subject out of President Barack Obama when he appears on the show Thursday night?

Though Clinton assured Kimmel there were no aliens in Area 51 and said he would tell people if he had discovered their existence, not everyone believes the former president.

Ben Hansen of the Syfy reality series "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files" didn't take Clinton at his word and released a 36-minute analysis of the exchange on YouTube, which picked apart Clinton's every reaction and response.

Not surprisingly, considering Hansen's interests, he found Clinton's nonverbal communication indicated he wasn't being completely open about what he knew about Area 51.

If you have the time, you can watch the entire analysis here.

Obama has long talked about his love of science fiction and his admiration for the character of Mr. Spock on "Star Trek," so it wouldn't be surprising if the president had done some digging of his own into our government's files.

Will Kimmel want to go down that path with him? He could always ask Obama about his "alien Secret Service agents."

The truth is out there, Jimmy. And only you can find it.
