Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 5, 2009
Paradigm Research Group will hold its fifth X-Conference (Exopolitics Expo) April 17-19 at the Hilton Hotel in Gaithersburg, MD. This event is an integral part of PRG's advocacy work aiming to change government policy toward extraterrestrial-related phenomena. Since 1947 the United States has imposed a "truth embargo" on formal acknowledgment of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. This engagement has been confirmed by a mountain of evidence compiled by hundreds of researchers over six decades.
Conference and registration information is found at: http://www.x-conference.com. It is open to the public and there is on-site registration. Press passes are available.
X-Conference 2009 is hosted by former CNN news anchor, Cheryll Jones. Featured speakers this year include:
Dr. Edgar Mitchell - this author, explorer, founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and one of only 12 humans to set foot off the planet Earth (Apollo 14) triggered an international media storm in July of 2008 when many in a UK radio audience heard for the first time his assertions about what he has learned about an extraterrestrial presence in our skies (See: http://www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/Mitchell_Media_Coverage.htm) Dr. Mitchell will give his most comprehensive lecture on the intersection of his life with these issues, the response he has received and his thoughts on the disclosure process and the possible new paradigm in a post-disclosure world.
Nick Pope - media coverage in the United Kingdom of the extraterrestrial/UFO issue has exploded over the past twelve months due to the timed release of thousands of documents and sighting reports by the British government into the public domain. These releases have generated hundreds of articles both in the UK and the United States. At the center of this storm is Nick Pope, a former Senior Executive Officer with the UK Ministry of Defence, who directly investigated the UFO issue while working for the MoD and is now a leading researcher and spokesperson. Nick will address the powerful events unfolding in his country.
Major Milton Torres: Nick Pope will be joined by USAF Major (ret.) Dr. Milton Torres who was featured in one of the MoD documents released last year. Major Torres was ordered to shoot down a UFO while on duty in the UK and is now publicly speaking to that extraordinary event.
Other speakers include: Stephen Bassett (Moderator); George Noory (Special Presentation); Dr. Roger Leir (Special Presentation); Col. John Alexander, PhD (Special Presentation - Debate with Stephen Bassett); Colin Andrews; Art Campbell with Manuel Kirklin; Richard Dolan; Graham Hancock; Paola Harris; Jeff Peckman; Michael Salla; PhD; Victor Viggiani; Alfred Webre, JD. Guest Activists: Dr. Joseph Buchman, Dr. Rebecca Hardcastle, Terri Mansfield, Robert Fleishcer (Germany), Angelika Whitecliff, Frederik Uldall (Denmark).
All members of the U. S. Congress have received invitations to send representatives to X-Conference 2009.
A post-conference press event will be held at the National Press Club, 14th and F Streets, NW, Washington, DC on Monday, April 20, at 10 am. Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Nick Pope, Major Milton Torres and other speakers will have announcements and take questions on the most important issue of our time.
