|They are said to be able to cross galaxies. But people who believe they
are out there, want to know why aliens want to visit Earth.
A group of
former U.S. servicemen is convinced extraterrestrials are interfering
with nuclear weapons, as RT's Cedric Moon explains.
was not your run-of-the-mill Washington press conference. UFO
researcher Robert Hastings organized a briefing on Sept. 27th, 2010 to
issue a warning about aliens having visited our nuclear facilities.
unveiled several alleged UFO sightings which they said shut down
nuclear missiles. The former commanders also described pulsating
objects, strange markings and a hovering craft that suddenly shot away.
some cases, nuclear missiles supposedly malfunctioned while a
disc-shaped object hovered nearby.
Although the officers produced fresh
affidavits detailing their experiences, the incidents, many of them the
1960s, had previously been publicized by UFO enthusiasts. Some of them
were first disclosed decades ago.
It is believed that nuclear weapons are being targeted by UFOs due to the destruction they can cause to the Earth. While many believe this is just fiction, it is hard to dismiss such credible witnesses especially those who had extremely important careers.
These ex-air force officials want the US government to come forward and acknowledge that UFOs are real, although it is highly unlikely that the US government would admit to such an event. Many believe there is a cover-up when it comes to the US government and UFOs.
"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
“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.
UFOs at Nuclear Weapon Bases
Former Air Force officers go public on UFOs September 27th, 2010
serve in the military himself, but he worked with Robert Salas, a
retired Air Force missile launch officer, to assemble a crew of former
airmen whose stories shared a remarkable similarity.
From 1963 to 1980, all were
present at U.S. nuclear missile sites when the flashing lights of alien
spacecraft — some disc-shaped, some conical, some spherical — appeared
before them or their colleagues.
(Hastings said he couldn’t rule out
that alien contacts we haven’t heard about are ongoing to this day.)
Some confessed that they didn’t see the ships themselves, but heard reliable accounts from trustworthy comrades.
In most cases, though, when the aliens approached, the missiles stopped being responsive to technicians’ controls.
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," as he was quoted in the Telegraph.
Mr Hastings said there were
other UFOs spotted above military bases in recent decades with the
latest sighting in 2007 at Malmstrom.
In response to the sightings, the
Air Force referred to a fact sheet on its website that read, “No UFO
reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an
indication of threat to our national security”.
U.S. Air Force personnel, mostly officers who worked on secret projects
connected to sensitive nuclear weapons sites, are admitting that they
were privy to UFO and alien-related incidents -- that occurred during
their time of service.
"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."
Former Air Force Officials Claim UFO Sighted at Military Bases
Ex-Air Force Commanders Say
UFOs Are The Real Deal
Is there intelligent life out there?
Ex-Air Force officers say UFOs are the real deal.
They claim they were
spotted hovering over nuclear missile silos or nuclear weapons storage
areas in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
At the time, the officers say the military urged them not to talk about the incidents.
"At this point in time, I'm a debunker," said Roger Launius, a Senior
Curator at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington.
The men believe extraterrestrial beings are interested in the world's
nuclear arms race and may be sending humans a message - but not everyone
is so sure.
"I always probe pretty hard what kinds of evidence do you have to support this? I have yet to see any," said Launius.
