Visitors From Outer Space, Real Or Not, Are Focus Of Discussion
In Washington

By Andrew Siddons

WASHINGTON =97 While President Obama was promoting an immigration
overhaul in Mexico, six former members of Congress gathered two
blocks from the White House to consider what they see as the
enforced government secrecy surrounding another kind of visitor:
the kind who come from a lot farther away.

Every day this week, the former legislators presided over panels
made up of academics and =97 former, of course =97 government and
military officials, who were there to discuss their research or
their own eyewitness accounts of unidentified flying objects and
the extraterrestrials who presumably would have occupied them.

"Something is monitoring the planet, and they are monitoring it
very cautiously, because we are a very warlike planet," said Mike
Gravel, a former Democratic senator from Alaska who ran in both
the Democratic and Libertarian presidential primaries in 2008.

Mr. Gravel and his fellow panelists were assembled by the
Paradigm Research Group, which says it is committed to ending the
government=92s "truth embargo" on the existence of extraterrestrial
life. The lawmakers were there in hopes that their presence and
political credibility would be enough to persuade Congress to
take the issue seriously.

"I=92ve been exploring how we might get this issue out of the
shadows of the lunatic fringe," said Roscoe G. Bartlett, a former
Republican representative from Maryland. Before his defeat last
year, Mr. Bartlett was known for sounding the alarm on the threat
posed to the nation=92s energy infrastructure by electromagnetic
pulse, or EMP, the shock wave from a nuclear weapon detonated
beyond the earth=92s atmosphere.

Called the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, the event might have
been mistaken as advocacy for government transparency, and some
of the panelists had impressive r=E9sum=E9s.
