Are UFOs Keeping Us From Nuking Ourselves? Let’s Hope So

Are UFOs Keeping Us From Nuking Ourselves? Let’s Hope So

Full disclosure: I love news of the weird and wonderful.
I don’t take this stuff at face value (to say the least), but I do love me a good yarn.
This one — a tale involving nukes, former military personnel, and UFOs — is too much fun to ignore.
Check out this feed of a briefing organized Monday by UFO researcher Robert Hastings at the National Press Club.
Or you can check out military newspaper Stars & Stripes’straightforward account:
In 1967, former Air Force Capt. Robert Salas was in an underground capsule at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana when the security forces above told him they had spotted a red glowing object just in front of the base’s front gate.
After telling the airmen above not to let the object get past the perimeter fence, the 10 ICBMs he had purview over suddenly became deactivated, Salas said. He feels the aliens were sending a message, literally shining a light on nuclear weapons.
“They could have a lot more damage, permanent damage, to our weapons systems, and they didn’t,” Salas said. “If they wanted to destroy them, with all the powers they seem to have, I think they could have done that job, so I personally don’t think this was a hostile intent.”
So far the most entertaining take on this story comes from theWashington Post’s John Kelly. Lured to the presser by the promise of free cookies, Kelly wasn’t terribly impressed that one of those who spoke couldn’t get a good photo of one of the encounters he says he witnessed.

Former U.S. Air Force Officers Recount Experiences With UFOs at Nuclear Missile Bases

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 UFOsvisited 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. "I want the Air Force, the government to come forward and say this is a real phenomenon."
But Salas said it's a "falsehood" that UFOs are not a national security threat and claims he speaks from firsthand experience.
He was stationed 60 feet underground at the Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana in March 1967, monitoring the launch control center for 10 nuclear missiles when he received a call from a guard above ground.

Missiles Not Permanently Damaged by UFO, Airman Said

"He calls down saying they've been seeing some strange lights in the sky making odd maneuvers, very silent, he knows they're not airplanes," he said.
At first Salas didn't pay much attention to the report, he said. But then he received a second phone call.
"He calls back about five minutes later and this time he's screaming into the phone. He's very frightened, I can tell by his voice," Salas said. "And he said, 'Sir, I've got all the guards out here, they've got their weapons drawn, we're all looking at an orange or reddish pulsating oval-shaped object. It's about 30 feet in diameter and just hovering above the front gate. "
Thinking they were under some kind of attack, Salas said he told the guards to keep it outside the perimeter of the gate.
As he alerted the other officer stationed with him underground, he said he noticed that the missiles started going offline.
"The missiles started going into 'no go' or unlaunchable condition. They were essentially disabled while this object was overhead," he said.

"Nobody was injured and I don't consider it an attack but it certainly it was a national security incident and something the Air Force said has never happen in their official policy documents," he said.The unidentified object eventually took off ? and the missiles didn't suffer permanent damage ? but he said it took about a day to get the missiles back up and running.
When contacted by ABC News, an Air Force spokeswoman declined to comment and pointed to the Air Force's official position on UFOs outlined on its website.
According to that statement, after investigating UFOs from 1947 to 1969, the Air Force concluded that there was no evidence indicating that sightings considered "unidentified" were extraterrestrial in origin.
"No UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security," the statement said. "There was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as "unidentified" represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge."

Former Airman: UFO Wanted to Send a Message

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.
Other former officers recounted similar stories of unexplained moving lights and odd-shaped flying objects during their time in the service, media reports said. Some said it was difficult to talk about their experiences with friends and family."I think it was simply a show. 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."
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.
Some documents even show that Air Force officials themselves believed the UFO reports were concerning, she said.
