The origin of the Men In Black concept is in the mind of the "witness".
People who made up stories about UFOs to sound cool realized their lies would have hole after hole poked through them, so they invented an Earth-dwelling entity (possibly government) that would be their fall-back when questioned into a corner.
Aliens aren't visiting Earth in spaceships, and there's no secret agency that threatens the lives of Americans who believe they've witnessed a UFO.edit on 16-3-2013 by DaTroof because: (no reason given)
But do they actually go about plotting and carrying out unprovable murders?

Secret organisations do kill people in secret, and they've dones so for millennia.
Sometimes it goes public, like the Alexander Litvinenko story, where they will inject radioactive isotopes into your system, just like in James Bond movies.
If you possess information deemed critical for one of these ( mostly government ) organisations, and they think you are a risk of spilling something to another party, you will die. No point in denying that.
I guess shady agents going around and killing people do count as MIB sorta, don't they ?
But maybe Mr Litvinenko was just a nutter and poisoned himself ..

he has claimed that his life has been threated, and describes an attack by a 'man in black'. he has continued to post, however.
i havn't checked out his threads lately, thanks for reminding me.
