Apparently the xfiles alien pic WAS the original image:
4Chan poster alledgedly admitting to being involved with group of hoaxers
The above link states that hoaxers took advantage of a maintenance window bug which caused threads to be deleted and not archived... and that is how this whole mess evolved.

I think you are using an overactive imagination there. Life isn't a sci-fi movie. People want to believe so bad that the moment something comes out that others corroborate as real, they latch onto the idea because they want it to be true so bad. I don't think that you're going to find disclosure of any kind on 4Chan. Most mysteries have a logical explanation. To say this is an exception is just hopeful thinking.
