Former U.S. Air Force Officers Recount Experiences With UFOs at Nuclear Missile Bases
September 27, 2010, ABC News
The U.S. government's official line may be that unidentified flying objects (UFOs) don't pose a national security threat, but a group of former Air Force officers gathered Monday in the nation's capital to tell a different story. During a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., seven former Air Force officers once stationed at nuclear bases around the country said that not only have UFOs visited Air Force bases, some have succeeded in disabling nuclear missiles stationed there. "I want the government to acknowledge that this phenomenon exists," said Robert Salas, a former U.S. Air Force Nuclear Launch Officer.
Salas said he doesn't think the UFOs he claims to have encountered had any offensive intent, but he believes they wanted to leave an impression. "They wanted to shine a light on our nuclear weapons and just send us a message," he said. "My interpretation is the message is get rid of them because it's going to mean our destruction."
Other former officers recounted similar stories of unexplained moving lights and odd-shaped flying objects during their time in the service. Leslie Kean, an investigative journalist and author of the new book "UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record," said thousands of pages of documentation support the officers' accounts. She spent the last 10 years researching UFOs and combing through thousands of pages of declassified government material. Kean said that one declassified document that she researched for her book, relating to the Salas incident, said, "the fact that no apparent reason for the loss of the 10 missiles can easily be identified is a cause for grave concern to this headquarters."

Ex-Air Force Personnel: UFOs Deactivated Nukes
September 27, 2010, CBS News
Whatever the mysterious lights in the sky were, they seemed to have an interest in our nukes. One of the more out-of-the-ordinary press conferences held in Washington this week consisted of former Air Force personnel testifying to the existence of UFOs and their ability to neutralize American and Russian nuclear missiles.
UFO researcher Robert Hastings of Albuquerque, N.M., who organized the National Press Club briefing, said more than 120 former service members had told him they'd seen unidentified flying objects near nuclear weapon storage and testing grounds.
Robert Jamison, a retired USAF nuclear missile targeting officer, told of several occasions having to go out and "re-start" missiles that had been deactivated, after UFOs were sighted nearby.
[In a] December 1980 incident near two Royal Air Force Bases in Suffolk, England ... several U.S. Air Force personnel reported seeing a strange metallic object hovering.
Retired USAF Col. Charles Halt said that in December 1980, when he was deputy base commander at RAF Bentwaters, strange lights in the forest were investigated by three patrolmen. They reported approaching a triangular craft, "approximately three meters on a side, dark metallic in appearance with strange markings." Halt found indentations in the ground, broken branches, and low-level background radiation.
He and his team also witnessed various lights moving silently in the sky, of one which was "shedding something like molten metal." Several of the ex-servicemembers speaking Monday said when they'd brought their concern of such appearances to superiors, they'd been told it was "top secret" or that it "didn't happen."
Hastings suggested the presence of such phenomena meant that aliens were monitoring our weapons, and perhaps warning us - "a sign to Washington and Moscow that we are playing with fire."

Ex-Air Force officers call UFOs and nukes a real 'security concern'
September 27, 2010, USA Today
A half-dozen former Air Force officers plan a news conference today at the National Press Club to discuss UFOs and nuclear missiles, including an alleged incident in 1967 at a Montana missile base where 10 Minuteman missiles were mysteriously deactivated as a UFO hovered overhead. Former Air Force Capt. Robert Salas, a former Minuteman missile-launch officer at Malmstrom AFB, says he was on duty during the incident in March 1967.
He says a "red, oval-shaped object" hovered low over the base while the missiles were mysteriously rendered unlaunchable. Salas, in an interview this weekend with Washington's Fox5 news, showed formerly classified documents that called the lack of any apparent reason for the shutdown a matter of "grave concern."
Salas claims no one at the base was ever debriefed formally about the incident, which he says occurred again at another missile base the following week. At the news conference, Salas told reporters that "the UFO phenomenon is real, not imaginary and there is excessive secrecy in the government about this issue." [He] called "tampering" with nuclear weapons a "national security concern." "The U.S. Air Force is lying about the national security implications of unidentified aerial objects at nuclear bases and we can prove it."
Salas claims to have witness testimony from 120 former or retired military personnel that points to alien intervention at nuclear sites in the U.S. as recently as 2003.
Note: Capt. Robert Salas has conducted extensive personal investigation into his bizarre experience with UFOs shutting down nuclear warheads under his watch.

UFOs eyed nukes, ex-Air Force personnel say
September 27, 2010, CNN Blog
Seven former U.S. Air Force personnel gathered in Washington Monday to recount UFO sightings over nuclear weapons facilities in decades past – accounts that a UFO researcher says show extraterrestrial beings are interested in the world’s nuclear arms race and may be sending humans a message.
At a news conference at the National Press Club, the six former officers and one ex-enlisted man recalled either personal sightings or reports from subordinates and others of UFOs hovering over nuclear missile silos or nuclear weapons storage areas in the 1960s, '70s and '80s. Three of the former Air Force officers – though they hadn’t seen the UFOs themselves - told reporters that UFOs hovering over silos around Montana’s Malmstrom Air Force Base in 1967 appeared to have temporarily deactivated some of the nuclear missiles. Much of the testimony already has appeared in books, websites and elsewhere.
But UFO researcher and author Robert Hastings, who organized the news conference, said the time has come for the U.S. government to acknowledge the UFO visits. “I believe - these gentlemen believe - that this planet is being visited by beings from another world, who for whatever reason have taken an interest in the nuclear arms race which began at the end of World War II,” said Hastings, who added that more than 120 former military personnel have told him about UFOs visiting nuclear sites.
“Regarding the missile shutdown incidents, my opinion … is that whoever are aboard these craft are sending a signal to both Washington and Moscow, among others, that we are playing with fire – that the possession and threatened use of nuclear weapons potentially threatens the human race and the integrity of the planetary environment,” he said.

Former Air Force officers discuss UFO sightings
September 27, 2010, Air Force Times
Armed with declassified documents and vivid details, a group of former Air Force officers gathered Monday to go public with an assertion they have kept mostly under wraps for decades: that UFOs visited the bases they were stationed at and caused nuclear weapon system to temporarily malfunction.
The group, convened by UFO researcher Robert Hastings, came to the National Press Club in Washington to discuss their individual experiences and to urge a government that tried to ignore and silence them when they came forward years ago to finally come clean. Hastings said he believes that visitors from outer space are fixating on nuclear weapons because they want to send a message: Disarm before the world destroys itself.
Hastings said he has heard of a UFO incident occurring at Malmstrom as recently as 2007.
The declassified documents Hastings presented at Monday's news conference include decades-old government memos detailing reports of sightings of objects in the skies above Alabama, Montana, New Mexico and North Dakota. He has talked to 120 former or retired U.S. military about the presence of UFOs at nuclear weapons sites across the United States and around the globe as early as 1945, when the world entered the nuclear age with the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
For some of the officers who came forward Monday, going public wasn't easy. Bruce Fenstermacher, a missile combat crew commander at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyo., was "laughed at" by superiors when he reported a UFO sighting at a launch site that one of his sergeants had passed on to him, he said.
He decided to keep his head low after that. "I was very careful about who I told what," he said. "I was concerned. I don't want to be considered a kook. But I think it's more important to come out and tell our story."
Aliens Are Monitoring Our Nukes, Worry Ex-Air Force Officers
September 23, 2010, Fox News
Captain Robert Salas was on duty in Montana in 1967 when a UFO shut down the nuclear missiles on his base. And he's hardly the only one to make such a claim. On Monday, six former U.S. Air Force officers and one
former enlisted man will break their silence about similar events at the National Press Club, all centering around unidentified flying objects and nuclear missiles. They plan to urge the government to publicly confirm the incidents, stating that they were ordered never to discuss the events.
"We're talking about unidentified flying objects, as simple as that," Salas told FoxNews.com. "They're often known as UFOs," he added. Salas, a former U.S. Air Force nuclear missile launch officer, will host the event along with researcher Robert Hastings, author of "UFOs and Nukes:
Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites." According to the pair, witness testimony from more than 120 former or retired military personnel points to an ongoing and alarming intervention by unidentified aerial objects at nuclear weapons sites, as recently as 2003. In some cases, several nuclear missiles simultaneously and inexplicably malfunctioned while a disc-shaped object silently hovered nearby.
The group plans to distribute declassified U.S. government documents at the event that they claim will substantiate the reality of UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites extending back to 1948. The press conference will also address present-day concerns about the abuse of government secrecy as well as the ongoing threat of nuclear weapons.
"This is only the tip of the iceberg, these stories," Salas told FoxNews.com.

Aliens have deactivated British and US nuclear missiles, say US military pilots
September 27, 2010, Telegraph (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
Aliens have landed, infiltrated British nuclear missile sites and deactivated the weapons, according to US military pilots.
The beings have repeated their efforts in the US and have been active since 1948, the men said, and accused the respective governments of trying to keep the information secret.
The unlikely claims were compiled by six former US airmen and another member of the military who interviewed or researched the evidence of 120 ex-military personnel. The men's aim is to press the two governments to recognise the long-standing extra-terrestrial visits as fact.
One of the men, Capt Robert Salas, said: "The US Air Force is lying about the national security implications of unidentified aerial objects at nuclear bases and we can prove it." He said said he witnessed such an event first-hand on March 16, 1967, at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana which housed Minuteman nuclear missiles.
Capt Salas continued: "I was on duty when an object came over and hovered directly over the site. The missiles shut down - 10 Minuteman missiles. And the same thing happened at another site a week later. There's a strong interest in our missiles by these objects, wherever they come from. I personally think they're not from planet Earth."
Former Air Force Officers Claim UFOs Visited Bases, Tampered With Nukes
September 28, 2010, Popular Science magazine
The truth is out there, and yesterday a group of retired Air Force officers gathered the media and a handful of well-wishers at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., in an attempt to reveal what they say is a government cover-up of decades of alien contact.
The officers claimed, through their own individual accounts, that during the Cold War UFOs visited various USAF installations, but that’s just the precursor to a more remarkable assertion: the aliens were tampering with our nukes. In one account, retired targeting officer Robert Jamison said all 10 missiles in his charge – known as a “flight” – went off alert status just as rumors of unidentified lights in the sky overhead swept through the base.
Jamison didn’t see the UFO himself, but several others on the base witnessed the incident. The cause of his missiles going offline is unknown. The fact that all of the officers – whose accounts took place at different times and installations – told similar stories with similar outcomes was a compelling enough narrative for the journalists on hand for the event.
Hastings and the officers don’t think their aliens are hostile in nature, but rather that they aimed to show humankind the error of its ways and how close it was to destroying itself during that period in history. Present along with the Air Force officers were a bevy of declassified documents depicting odd aerial phenomena recorded by the U.S. government over the years.
But what Hastings and the officers really want, they said, is the truth, like the details of Project Blue Book, an Air Force investigation running from 1947 to 1969 in which some 12,618 sighting were recorded, 701 of which remain “unidentified.”
According to Hastings and company, the government knows what’s going on and has been keeping it under wraps for decades. Hastings told reporters. "Citizens in every country on Earth should be let in on this secret."
Aliens have landed ... in the headlines
September 27, 2010, MSNBC
UFO researcher Robert Hastings said the men at today's news conference were among more than 100 former or retired U.S. Air Force personnel who "have come forward and revealed ongoing UFO surveillance of, and occasional interference with, our nuclear weapons. "
The fact that the Pentagon and CIA have successfully kept the truth from public view for so long is in itself mind-boggling."
Eyewitness accounts about funny business at and around military bases have been circulating for years, and in fact are among the main themes of Leslie Kean's recently published book "UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record."
Several retired military men discussed their recollections of an incident that took place at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana in March 1967, relating to reported missile system malfunctions at two locations known as Echo Flight and Oscar Flight.
The recollections were mostly secondhand: Robert Salas, Dwynne Arneson and Robert Jamieson, three retired military officers who played a part in the Malmstrom incident, said they were told that UFOs had been sighted around the time of the malfunctions. Salas said he was told that a "red, glowing object," about 30 feet in diameter, hovered just outside the silo facility when the weapon systems went offline.
Pero no sin antes puntualizar y subrayar ciertos aspectos de éste tema tan transcendentalmente delicado, tabu-sáico y vigilado por el Panopticon del 'status quo' siempre acechando.
Por ejemplo, cada vez que he puesto en mi blog algo relacionado con éste tema, ocurre algo que nunca pasa: automáticamente me llega un --larguísimo-- comentario de un tal James Carlson en el cúal se insiste que Robert Hastings es un mentiroso y que todo lo que dice es falso.
Está muy mal montado el tal "comentario" que aparece cúando se trata éste tema, porque sus características, tal y como está concebido y mandado, demuestran que coresponde a un cierto programa --hecho a ex professo para éstos casos-- que actúa como un 'termoestato' cibernéticamente estructurado para responder en la Internet a todos aquellos que saquen a la luz el tema de los OVNI'S sobre los silos subterráneos del arsenal nuclear norteaméricano --o de cualqier país--, que, ni que decir tiene, es el secreto militar mejor guardado.
En síntesis: cualquiera que investigue y publique en la 'Red' algo sobre éste tabú tan bien guardado...no me sorprendería que recibiera una respuesta del tal "James Carlson" tratando de convencernos de que Rober Hastings es un fraude y que no debemos escucharlo.
Apostaría a que es el Panopticon del "Ministerio de la Verdad" orwelliano el que hay detrás de éstos "comentarios" de don "James Carlson". Tienen miedo de que al tabú se le abra las tapaderas que lo está guardando.
Por otro lado, por el lado del Logos, es absurdo el querer centralizar el tema en la persona de Hasting, el asunto, naturalmente, es muchísimo más profundo y delicado y escapa totalmente a un personaje cualquiera de éste entarimado.
Los hechos empíricos de que han aparecido OVNI'S sobre los silos subterráneos de los nucleares misiles balísticos intercontinentales, y que, en bastantes ocasiones, éstos han sido electrónicamente bloqueados, no tiene nada que ver con el perfil de la conducta de Hasting ni con el "curriculum vitae" de ningún concreto humano.
El hecho de que éstas complejísimas instalaciones de misiles atómicos --conectadas al "maletín nuclear" que los presidentes siempre tienen a mano-- sean bloqueadas electrónicamente por éstos Objetos Inidentificados abre todo un mundo de conjeturas e hipótesis dónde la imaginación puede escoger a gusto.
Pero en lo que no caben dudas ni cabilaciones es en el hecho específico de que, primero, tienen un cierto interés en éstos lugares secretos, y, segundo, tienen la increíble capacidad de interferir en ellos.
Muchas divagaciones caben al respecto.
Una de ellas podría ser que nos esten advirtiendo del apocalíptico riesgo de que estamos 'jugando con fuego' con el implícito y obvio peligro para toda la humanidad y para el entero planeta, en el cual, "ellos" parecen estar interesados.
Estamos aquí frente al secreto mejor velado-- por obvias razones, claro-- de la clase gobernante de los países con éstas capacidades del arsenal nuclear...y se nota muy claro: cubrir, como sea, uno de los acontecimientos más importantes de la história de la Tierra en sus ultimos tres mil millones de años desde que apareció la vida en ella y que dió lugar a éste extraño mono-vestido del ser humano: que objetos voladores no identificados --de otros mundos u otras dimensiones--demuestran interés sobre las instalaciones nucleares de la tecnología apocalípticamente destructiva de ésta "sui generis" criatura humana.
No podemos terminar sin decir que todo lo tratado sirve, no para conocer mas a los OVNI'S o los seres o robots que los manejan, sino para conocer mas al "homo sapiens"...Y cúanto mas lo conocemos más miedo nos dá.
