UFO conspiracy hearing boosted by former congressmen and senator
By Dan Roberts in Washington
If there are extraterrestrial rewards for perseverance, the organisers of the UFO conspiracy hearings that are under way at the National Press Club in Washington this week deserve a visit from space.
Five former US congressmen and one former senator have been paid $20,000 each to lend credibility to the event, which calls on the government to release supposed secret documents showing alien incursions dating back decades.
Expert witnesses were sworn in under oath to testify before the committee of former politicians. UFO watchers from around the world were patched in via live video link and booths of simultaneous translators provided coverage in Spanish, Arabic, Hindi, Japanese and Mandarin. Even the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan paid a visit, complete with a dozen security guards.
Not one of those who spoke during an opening session filled with around 100 delegates disputed the premise that extraterrestrial visits were being hidden from the public.
In 2011, the White House responded to a petition on the subject by formally denying any such cover-up. "There is no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," the White House response said. "In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."
But that official intervention has only served to stoke anger among those who believe in a vast government conspiracy.
More than 10,000 separate UFO sightings are reported each year to two leading conspiracy websites, according to one witness, Richard Dolan, who has written several books on the subject. Linda Moulton Howe, a former documentary filmmaker, said that aliens had been visiting earth "since before the dinosaurs". "We are dealing with technology so advanced that they can bend space and time," she said, to loud applause.
The politicians who made up the committee were given just five minutes each to cross-examine witnesses, but defended their presence and the $20,000 "honorarium". . . .
