On a press conference at the national press club in Washington D.C., seven former Air Force officers confirmed that UFOs did not only visit their Air Force base, but as well succeeded to disable a missile silo 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.
However, Salas said it is a “falsehood” that UFOs are not a national security threat and claims he speaks from firsthand experience.
Salas was stationed 60 feet underground in an Air Force base in Montana, monitoring the launch control center for 10 nuclear missiles; everything was “casual” until he received that phone call.
He receives a call saying “some strange lights in the sky making odd maneuvers, very silent, he knows they’re not airplanes,”
Salas did not pay that much attention to the report until the second phone call came in.
“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 is about 30 feet in diameter and just hovering above the front gate. ”
As they thought they were under attack, Salas asked the guards to keep it off the perimeter.
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 a no launch 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.
Salas believes that the UFOs had no offensive intent, more as if they wanted to leave an impression.
“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.”
Since the 1970’s, the Air Force has said investigations and evaluations of UFO reports have never given any indication that UFOs are a threat to national security, she said.
Should the Government acknowledge UFOs?
