The article that follows is not noteworthy for the information it discloses or the style in which it’s presented. Almost all of it is known to readers here.
It’s noteworthy because it comes in a .pdf file issued by the Smithsonian Museum. The Smithsonian Museum has added its voice to those who maintain that there is a cover-up of the extraterrestrial presence and has showcased some of the current allegations that are being made that the U.S. Government in particular has kept the wraps on that presence, on what goes on at Area 51, etc.
The information is given in the style of a museum exhibit (I used to design exhibits for the Canadian Museum of Man) and is pretty choppy and inconclusive, intended more to excite interest and curiosity than to inform. But the addition of the weight of the Smithsonian to the voices clamoring for Disclosure is significant nonetheless.

Fully UPDATED for 2013
Full Update: From the Las Vegas Sun by Robin Leach (contact information)
This is excerpts from the amazing article by Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun, titled:
“UFO military secrets revealed, but revelations spark more questions”
“Among the audience of some 200 at the Smithsonian’s National Atomic Testing Museum were my UFO expert pal Lee Spiegel from AOL/Huffington Post and his Sci-Fi TV channel friends Ben McGee of
“Chasing UFOs,” Ben Hansen from “Fact or Faked” and “Poltergeist” author Mark Victor.”
“Lee told me that the bold accusation about the government’s secret UFO agency was made by former Air Force Col. Charles Halt, saying: “ I’m firmly convinced there’s an agency, and there is an effort to suppress.” Two former Air Force officers who were part of Project Blue Book, the official military UFO investigation in the 1950s and ’60s, and a former investigator with Britain’s Ministry of Defense also were on the panel “Military UFOs: Secrets Revealed.”
“The U.S. government has been accused of a long-running, massive cover-up of a secret agency that solely deals with evidence and
information about UFOs and alien visitors, and the claim comes
from several high-ranking military officers and a British secret agent who all gathered here over the weekend.”
“I joined the group the night before the panel at a dinner at the museum, which houses the controversial Area 51 exhibit. I was impressed with their reputations, military standings and convictions on the subject sometimes scoffed and scorned by others. These were distinguished and serious-thinking military men with their own UFO experiences. Col. Halt himself when a U.K. military base commander at RAF Bentwater was one of numerous eyewitnesses to several UFOs. ”
“ I’ve heard many people say that it’s time for the government to appoint an agency to investigate,” he said. “Folks, there is an agency, a very close-held, compartmentalized agency, that’s been investigating this for years, and there’s a very active role played by many of our intelligence agencies that probably don’t even know the details of what happens once the collect the data and forward it.
“In the last couple of years, the British have released a ton of information, but has anybody ever seen what their conclusions were or heard anything about Bentwater officially? When the documents were released, the timeframe when I was involved in the incident is missing. Nothing else is missing.” The colonel says he’s kept in a lockbox copies of tapes, notes and diaries from the experience.
Atomic Testing Museum CEO and Executive Director Allan Palmer, a former Navy fighter jet pilot had this to say about the panel of retired military personnel gathered to talk about this UFO Phenomenon and subsequent cover-up “ They’ve all been dedicated to serving our country and been very serious about it. These are not flaky people; they’ve all held very responsible positions with high-level security clearances. They’re not the kind of people who tend to imagine things or go off on a wild tangent. They’re very professional.”
Also discussed: a segment on Mike Wallace “60 Minutes” television news show, where he voraciously questioned Marine Major Donald Keyhoe about Flying Saucers from outer space, as reported by more than 800 pilots! Would you like to see that interview? Of course you would…
It is right here below this paragraph:

Advanced Theoretical Physics Group Expert: Ret. Col John Alexander
“Retired Army Col. John Alexander, a Las Vegas resident and former top-level military insider with the Advanced Theoretical Physics Group, reported several intriguing UFO cases involving pilots and added:
“UFOs are real, and it is a global phenomenon — not something that just happens in the U.S. We need to make it permissible for scientist to discuss and research these topics.”
At the conclusion of the event, I’m sure the audience was impressed, and I hope they realized what a rare treat they experienced.
As people left, it was reported that Lee said:
“The enthusiastic audience really appreciated the panel’s candor, but they probably left with more questions than answers.”
