UFO researcher Robert Hastings said at a press conference in Washington on Monday that “this planet is being visited by beings from another world who for whatever reason have taken an interest in the nuclear arms race.”
He says he has witness testimony from over 120 military personnel showing infiltration of U.S. and British nuclear sites. Six retired officers and one former NCO also spoke of their own personal UFO experiences at the conference.
Many of the claims state that nuclear weapons, mostly missiles, malfunctioned while a strange, disc-shaped object hovered in the sky nearby. Many of the incidents, which took place in the 1960s, were first brought to light decades ago, although on Monday the officers involved produced fresh affidavits.
Hastings speculated that the aliens had been attempting to send “a sign to Washington and Moscow that we are playing with fire.”
Former US Air Force ICBM Missile Launch officer Captain Robert Salas alleges that he was on duty during a missile incident at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana back in 1967. According to Salas, a “large glowing, pulsating red oval shaped object” appeared over the front gate.
The Minuteman missiles he was overseeing then spontaneously shut down.
“The indicators for all or nearly all 10 missiles showed as red-coloured ‘fault’ lights, which meant that the missiles were disabled and could not be launched.”
He claims he was given orders not to discuss what happened but was never given an explanation as to what may have transpired.
Retired Col. Charles Halt also recalled seeing UFOs over the woods near Royal Air Force stations Bentwaters and Woodbridge in England in 1980.
“All through the forest was a bright glowing object,” he says. “The best way I can describe it, it looked like an eye – with bright red, with a dark center. It appeared to be winking. It was shedding something like molten metal, was dripping off it.
“It silently moved through the trees, avoiding any contact, it bobbed up and down, and at one point it actually approached us. We tried to get closer. It receded out into the field, beyond the forest, and silently exploded into five white objects – gone. So we went out into the field looking for any evidence, because something had been apparently falling off it – and we find nothing,” he said.
He says he then saw other foreign objects in the sky, including a UFO that stopped about 3,000 feet overhead and “sent down a concentrated beam at our feet.”
“The best way I can equate it is sort of a laser beam. We stood there in awe. Was this a warning? Was this an attempt to communicate? Was this a weapon? Or just a probe?” he said.
In a staff meeting that was held later, a general stated that “it happened off base, so it’s a British affair,” Halt said. “In other words, they were loathe to get involved.”
Salas says that UFOs are “real, not imaginary.”
“There is current excessive secrecy in our government surrounding this phenomenon,” he said.
