An article published on Reuters claims that “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.” Apparently, several nuclear missiles simultaneously and inexplicably malfunctioned while a disc-shaped object silently hovered nearby.
According to one of the witnesses, ICBM launch officer Captain Robert Salas, he was on duty during one missile disruption incident at Malmstrom Air Force Base and was ordered to never discuss it.
Another witness, retired Col. Charles Halt, “observed a disc-shaped object directing beams of light down into the RAF Bentwaters airbase in England and heard on the radio that they landed in the nuclear weapons storage area.”
Col. Halt stated “I believe that the security services of both the United States and the United Kingdom have attempted—both then and now—to subvert the significance of what occurred at RAF Bentwaters by the use of well-practiced methods of disinformation.”
A Press Conference will be held on Monday, September 27, 2010 (Holeman Lounge, National Press Club). Witnesses will discuss the national security implications of these incidents and declassified U.S. government documents will be distributed at the event, which claim to substantiate the reality of UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites extending back to 1948.
As most UFO enthusiasts will already know, the more serious UFO sightings began around this time with the “Roswell UFO incident” in 1947. It is also believed that the first “official” contact with aliens took place in 1954 (involving President Dwight Eisenhower).
Skeptics often ask how it is possible to cover-up events like this, and the question is a valid one. Many hundreds (perhaps thousands) of people in authority have probably witnessed UFO sightings that are unexplainable, yet very few come forward and reveal these secrets publicly.
This could be because they are ordered to remain silent, as was the case with Captain Robert Salas, or because they would be made to look foolish if they reported such sightings.
It is not unusual for the authorities to offer “earthly” excuses for UFO sightings, we all remember the “weather balloon” story at Roswell. The media are of course masters at making fun of such reports and can rarely read a story about UFO’s without smirking or adding some humourous remark.
With publicity like this, it is no wonder the public have been conditioned into thinking that the subject is just one big joke and those that have the sightings are all crazy. A good example of this response can be seen on sites like Fark.com, whose members enjoy bringing out the traditional UFO gags. I must admit that some of the jokes are quite funny (occasionally), but it would be nice to see some of them take the subject more seriously sometimes.
It will be interesting to see what the Press Conference reveals on Monday and hopefully details of this will be available soon.
