From the April 2005 Idaho Observer:

And now for something really different...

U.S. military trading secrets with tall, white aliens for decades, says former Air Force weather observer

In keeping with this monthís themeóthat things are not as they seem because most everything we have been taught is a lieówe decided to publish the following story. There are a couple of reasons why this story should be printed at this time: First, UFO and alien sightings have been reported in the mainstream news recently (The Idaho Observer, May, 2004); second, declassified government documents acknowledge UFOs and alien contact (see page 9); third, civilizations all over the world have been reporting aliens and UFOs since tools were developed to carve pictographs in stone; fourth, and most central to this monthís editorial purpose, on February 25, 2005, ABC News demi-deity Peter Jennings ignored evidence presented to him by the Disclosure Project (see page 9) to debunk UFO and alien sightings.

It must be noted that, on the 40-year anniversary of the assassination of JFK, Peter Jennings also determined that thoughts uttered (or evidence presented) challenging the Warren Commissionís Lee-Harvey-Oswald-lone-nut-magic-bullet theory were "conspiracy theories." So, if Peter Jennings says that something important isnít so, that is our first clue that it probably is. Plus, our intrepid reporter is planning a trip to Indian Springs. This story will have a sequel.

When aliens or UFOís are mentioned, some people say itís just a hoax or somebodyís "imagination gone south."

Still others, deep down inside, believe they exist, but donít have the courage to admit it publicly.

And, there are those true believers, those who have seen the light and claim to have personally made contact.

Charles Hall of Albuquerque, NM, says he is one of those true believers. The following is his story.

Some stand more than 8 feet tall, run 40 mph and live 800 years. They speak like a dog barking or a bird chirping, write similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics and have learned English quite easily.

They have large blue eyes that wrap part way around the sides of their heads, small noses and tiny ears pressed tight to their scalps. Their hands are small our size with four long slender fingers and two claw-like appendages instead of fingernails.

They all have thin, straight blond hair, usually worn short, and the women can be distinguished by a feminine looking short cut. Their hips are shaped liked ours, but they walk quite differently since they are used to a stronger gravity pull.

They typically can be seen wearing aluminized chalk white jump suits resembling a canvas-like fabric with gloves of the same material and an open white motorcycle helmet.

Whatís unusual is the suit emits a three-inch field of white fluorescent light, the intensity varying from soft to bright, a brightness that can actually hurt the human eye.

They are extremely intelligent and process information several times faster than humans. However, secretly they fear our intuitive ability and extra sensory perceptions.

They have individual talents, differing intellectual capabilities and physical traits, a race definitely not carved from a cookie-cutter. Some are teachers, some are pilots, some are workers and some are leaders. When bored, they like to go star gazing on hot summer nights, take weekend trips to the strip in Las Vegas or visit the Lincoln Monument in Washington D.C.

They like to recreate, procreate and their children, considerably shorter in size, are fun loving, energetic and inquisitive. The children enjoy hide and seek but they also like to play catch with soft objects since their bodies are frail, bruising easily. Mothers are highly devoted to their children to the "Nth" degree, existing solely for the purpose of meeting the needs of their offspring. They believe in a "tit for tat" system, believe their word is their bond and place a special importance on honoring agreements, especially verbal or written. However, it is unknown whether they believe in God per se or form religions to advance their beliefs.

Although they are highly individualistic, one similar characteristic is they all have white, chalky complexions. For this reason, they have been called the Tall Whites. And for this reason, most people think they are nothing but fictional characters conjured up from a past Star Trek episode.

But the Tall Whites are more than just fiction, says Charles Hall, an educated man with a masterís in nuclear physics and former weather observer for the United States Air Force.

According to Hall, who claims to have communicated with the Tall Whites, they are very real, very complex and very much a part of the community living at Nellis Air Force Base, a highly secretive 5,000 square mile "no fly zone" military compound in the southern and central Nevada desert.

Nellis is so secret, so secluded, so guarded by military police, according to Hall, an attempt to enter, an attempt to locate the Tall Whites, who live under the sand dunes in concrete and steel bunkers, would be like committing suicide.

"You canít go hunting for them or approach them. They have to come to you and the children are especially curious by nature," said Hall from his home in Albuquerque, NM., saying he hasnít attempted contacting the Tall Whites since his tour of duty ended in the Air Force in 1967 when he left to serve in Vietnam. "It was a traumatic experience being isolated in the desert, alone with someone so different and obviously more advanced than us.

"At first I thought I was going insane. But I learned over time how to communicate, how to approach them and to never try and force them to do anything.

Their nervous systems operate very quickly and they are very protective, very

suspicious of our intentions."

Asked why he never returned to Nellis, he simply said: "I just donít feel the need to go back. If you went through what I did, as I have meticulously recorded in my three books, you probably wouldnít want to go back either as it was at times frightening and emotionally draining."

Hallís "out of this world" recollections are not the product of an overactive imagination or drug-induced hallucinations, but from personal experiences and actual face-to-face contacts with the Tall Whites while stationed at Nellis from 1965-1967. He claims to have spent two years interacting with this alien race countless numbers of times, but only recently went public with his "earth shattering" statements in a set of three books entitled Millennial Hospitality.

"I just decided to wait all these years so as to not jeopardize the well being of my children while they were in school," said Hall, adding the accounts in his books are true with only names and places changed to protect the innocent.

"Along the way I confided with my wife and friends, but now that the children are on their own and grown up, Iíve decided to tell my story to the public."

And he says the facts in his book are just the tip of the iceberg in what just may turn out to be one of the most detailed, most convincing and most sought after alien stories of all time.

"Just read my books and youíll see what I mean," added Hall, referring to the time they wanted to impress him with their technology superiority by having him throw a rock and then stopping it in mid air. "They also are able to suspend bullets or other faster moving objects."

Academic heavyweight

lends support

Not only is Hall convinced about the Tall Whites alien origin and their exceptional powers, but so is academic heavyweight Michael Salla, a doctor of political science and head of a Washington think-tank after extensively interviewing Hall in December 2004.

What is even more astounding is that Salla has put his otherwise impeccable reputation as a political researcher and thinker on the line, to stray off an "earthly path" for the first time in his career.

Salla has held academic appointments in the School of International Service, American University, Washington, D.C. and the Department of Political Science, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. He also has taught as an adjunct faculty member at George Washington University. He is the author of , "The Heroís Journey Toward a Second America Century and Why the Cold War Ended," as well as "Essays on Peace."

"I have never before researched the UFO phenomena, but after talking to Charles I am a believer," said Salla on recent radio interview.

Sallaís in depth discussions were revealing, giving Hallís previous books and writings third party independent credibility instead of just biased approval from UFO groupies.

Besides the obvious questions concerning alien quirks, characteristics and intentions, Salla centered on the cooperation and agreements supposedly entered into by the Tall Whites with the U.S. government through military liaisons at Nellis Air Force Base.

"I found Charles Hall to be very credible and compelling in his response to questions. He displays great integrity and is quite sincere in describing solely the facts concerning his experiences," said Salla, who never before delved into UFO stories but has admitted he has come to be a believer. "The emotions that Charles objectively described in great detail conveyed the extent which what he was experiencing shook his world view and the views of those around him."

Government agreements

with the Tall Whites

However, the relationship between the Tall Whites and our government, explained by Hall, is mind boggling, shocking, revolting and seemingly impossible in a democratic society. But Hall insists these agreements exist, insisting the Tall Whites have been exchanging technology for earthly resources since the early 1950s and maybe even sooner.

Hall recalls in one of his books that in the late 1960s the military provided over $600,000 in clothing from Sears, having seen the shipment being hauled with military trucks into the desert compound where the Tall Whites lived. He

also recalls the military providing food, aluminum, titanium and other commodities, perhaps used for interstellar trading as the Tall Whiteís roam the universe, contacting other civilizations.

In his interview, Salla ventures to guess what has transpired since the 1960s and whether the military has been involved in more sinister deals and agreements without public disclosure.

Regarding nondisclosure, Salla effectively argues that the military may be compromising Americaís resources and its future survival by not allowing a public debate on issues concerning the welfare if its own people concerning issues involving trade agreements with the Tall Whites.

"The American people have a right to know and the knowledge Charles brings regarding the Tall Whiteís interaction with the U.S. Air Force generals is very enlightening in terms of the way agreements were followed to the letter," he said.

"It appears that the Tall Whites are quite legalistic and this seems to be something that the U.S. military finds to be helpful in working with them.

According to Charles, the Tall Whites were quite clear that only certain categories of technology would be shared, categories that presumably would not give the U.S. military deep space capability. They apparently pride themselves in being trustworthy and expect the same in return. A broken promise to a Tall White is the worst kind of evil and dealt with very harshly."

Hall also emphasizes the Tall Whites have no ulterior designs regarding Earth in terms of colonizing it or taking over governments with their advanced technology.

However, in his books he details how the Tall Whites would threaten to kill humans who disobeyed or scared them. Hall cites one frightening incident where an American general allowed a serviceman to be killed by a Tall White after one of their children was threatened.

"I think the American military felt the servicemen were expendable and of little importance in comparison with keeping the Tall Whites satisfied," said Hall.

Other unique characteristics

of Tall Whites

As previously mentioned, the Tall Whites can grow to be over 7 feet tall.

However, most the adults in the first half of their lives usually range in size from 5í10 to 6í5".

"Their life span is ten times grater than ourís," said Hall, adding that it takes them 10 times longer to heal too. "They do not age as we do, but at about 400 earth years, they undergo a second stage of growth, eventually reaching about 8 feet tall. They then die of organ failure at an age of approximately 800 years. Since on their planet, days are longer so are they sleeping patterns, usually staying awake for two earth days and then followed by sleeping the same amount of time."

"Although they can be quite friendly, they are at times arrogant and insulting. But they appear sensitive and understanding to our social structures and have cultivated relationships with high-ranking military officials, some of who have worked side by side with the Tall Whites. They held lesser ranking persons with disdain and I got a long with them by letting them treat me as their pets."

Asked what the Tall Whites thought was unique about humans, he said "they couldnít get over how we interacted with animals. They commented several times that we were the only life form they met that kept animals as pets. They appeared to be extremely frightened of our animals and couldnít figure out why we would interact with something so potentially deadly."

Where are they from?

Hall said he learned very little about the origin of the Tall Whites during his two-year encounter.

"They really shared very little about their history and origins," recalls Hall.

However, one incident took place with a Tall White he called "the Teacher" which revealed they may have come from near the star Arcturus about 36 light years away.

In a passage from one of his books, he said: "A ripple of emotion passed through the crowd when I mentioned the star Arcturus. After a short pause, the older lady asked with some surprise, ĎTeacher, does Charlie know where we come from?í

"The Teacher replied: ĎNo, not quite, but heís close.í"

Hall believes the reason they are here provides a perfect way station for the Tall Whites in their interstellar travel routes. And Nellis Air Force Base provides a perfect location since the remoteness of the desert provides excellent cover for takeoffs and landings.

"They arrive with new replacements on one of their larger spaceships every month at the time of the full moon," said Hall. "Iíve seen the ship arrive and have gotten as close as the outside entrance of the hangar but never inside."

How do they travel?

Hall witnessed three different types of spacecraft, ranging in size from a small nuclear powered scout craft and a large interstellar craft able to travel faster than the speed of light. This large black craft was approximately 70 feet high and 360 feet long. Hall said the technology of the small craft was shared with the military but the large craft remains a mystery.

Regarding their hangar and living facilities, he added, "I was able to observe the repair facilities from a short distance and to the best of my knowledge I am the only person to have been allowed to view these facilities.

"The American generals would do anything to maintain good relations with the Tall Whites in order to get their technology," said Hall, who maintains he saw them together many times and even sat together across negotiating tables.

"The exchange was done on the basis that would benefit the Tall Whites and they sometimes participated in classified meetings, helping with technology development."

What do they eat?

Hall said the military definitely supplied the Tall Whites with any type of food requested, but noticed them carrying prepared bags of what looked like mushroom pudding.

"I saw them once inspecting the food storage rooms in Indian Springs chow hall," he said. "And once I saw a couple of them in a Las Vegas restaurant with a full meal but they didnít touch their plates before leaving the restaurant."

Hall surmised they were plant eaters, as he noticed them collecting seeds on various occasions.

"They are not meat eaters. That I know for sure," he added. "The food that I saw packaged and sealed in plastic bags on the scout craft, looked like mushroom pudding. I was told by one of them it was prepared primarily for the children or for when they were out in the desert hiking.

"I was also told it wasnít a good idea to eat their food as it would have adverse affects on my body. It was my understanding that eating those foods made a person feel "very high and somewhat similar to drinking large amounts of liquor."

Have others seen them?

More than seven years prior to Hallís arrival at Nellis, log books showed 41 weather observers had been compromised while trying to perform their duties in the Nellis ranges. Some required medical attention, others were given medical discharges from the air force and some were killed.

In fact, the weather observer who preceded Hall deserted his duties and moved away from the area. So how did Hall survive when others before him didnít?

He attributes this to his ability to understand their habits and essentially being adopted by one of the Tall Whites called the Teacher, who seemed to take a special interest and liking to him.

Although he was never able to take photos, he said a New Jersey housewife traveling through Nevada had acquired a number of authentic looking photos which she included in a paperback book published on the Tall Whites. Even though this would have provided third party corroboration, he was unable to recall the name of the lady or the title of the book.

"It always has upset me that I couldnít remember her name, but I know the Tall Whites were viewed by many other servicemen on the range. I think someone there must have given her the photos," said Hall.

Did President Harry Truman see them?

Encountering Tall Whiteís at close range so shocked the servicemen at Nellis, frequently the sightings were reported as "ghosts, angels or other types of fantastic creatures."

Official accounts reported President Truman in the late 1940s thought he encountered ghosts in the White House usually before retiring to bed. The reports go on to say he thought he was mistakenly seeing the ghost of President Lincoln, telling White House employees of his sightings on a number of occasions

"My suggestion is that you research the stories of Lincolnís ghost and the ghost of Donna Anna county in Las Cruces near the White Sands Missile Range," said Hall. He suggested President Truman most likely encountered Tall Whites in the White House instead of ghosts. "Remember, many of the range maintenance men who saw the Tall Whites actually thought they were seeing ghosts."

Are the Tall Whites in India?

Credible news reports this month from the New Delhi Times and several other Indian dailies have reported their government is in the midst of an internal debate on whether to go public with alien encounters.

Many in the largest democracy in the world are eager to explain to its citizens and to the world about the ongoing contacts with UFOís and aliens. However, there are others who want to bend to the will of the worldís super powers who are now trying to convince India to keep quiet about UFO contact.

According to overseas news reports, America and other super powers are engaged in "economic bribery" in order to keep the Indian government silent about alien contact.

How can you meet them?

Asked this question, Hall suggests: "Drive to Indian Springs, Nevada during the hot part of summer in late May through early September. They like it hotter than we do. On the south side of town, there is a large open vacant section of desert. Pick a location where you can see the mountains located in the distance at the north end of Indian Springs Valley (that means they can see you).

"Make sure your having funóget involved with your work such as painting a picture, etc. That is very importantótheyíre boredó they like entertainment. Be very conscious of the passage of time. If you have any missing time, such as 20 minutes, remember any "dreams" that you might have had.

"Take note of any florescent light that you see at night no matter how far up in the valley it might be. The Tall Whites used to like to come out between 11:30 and 12:30 at night and return up the valley sometime after 4:30 a.m. Take note of any fuzzy white flying craft that you see just after sun comes up along the western side of the Indian Springs Valley.

"If they come, they prefer to approach you from behind so sit out in the open where you have a good view. Never, never panic - I know talk is cheap but never pursue them. Just stay standing or sitting in one place Itís OK to walk (not run) away if you become frightened.

"NEVER NEVER NEVER try to touch their children no matter how close they come.

The children are willing to come right up to you, closer than armís length. If you touch them, the mother will kill you. Sing quiet songs to yourself. I used to sing Ricky Nelsonís song, "Itís Up to You" and Iíd pray a lot. It calmed me down and I have no idea what it did for them. But It seemed to calm most of them down too.

"Good Luck."

Concluding thoughts

Whether Hallís story is true, of course, is debatable. However, no one can argue it is detailed and compelling.

If there are lingering doubts, they come from lack of corroboration, lack of physical evidence and Hallís inability to provide the names of those persons who may also have first hand knowledge.

If he is telling the truth, this added information would only give credence to his incredible story.

And as they say, until further evidence comes forward, the jury is still out!

But for those too impatient to await a final verdict, maybe a trip to Indian Springs Valley is the next logical step.
