Colonel Halt has accused the federal government of covering up evidence of extraterrestrial visitation.
The former Air Force officer who famously recounted his observations of a strange object that landed at Rendlesham Forest in 1980 made the claims of a cover up during a speech at the National Atomic Testing Museum on Saturday night. Halt maintains that a government agency has been set up to suppress information on alien visitors.
"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 they collect the data and forward it. It's kind of scary, isn't it?"
Also speaking at the event was former MoD UFO investigator Nick Pope and former Project Blue Book spokesman Col. Bill Coleman.
