UFO Reports at Nuclear Missile Sites and The Pentagon UFO Program

UFO Reports at Nuclear Missile Sites and The Pentagon UFO Program

Now, about those nukes …

     Just how much momentum The New York Times’ reporting on UFOs will carry into 2018 depends largely on, ahem, The New York Times. Steady followup coverage of its 12/16/17 scoop on the Pentagon’s $22M Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification (AATI) program reminds us of what we already know, that nothing gets traditional media off its ass better than The Grey Lady. Reader traffic has been massive, expectations are high and, as critics point out, The Times has a ton of loose ends to address. Incentives aplenty. But just how far into the uncharted waters of this species of journalism is management willing to swim?

Among the many questions raised in the stampede of copycat reporting: How, exactly, does the Defense Department justify, on national security grounds, investing millions of $$$ in pursuit of The Great Taboo? Well, for starters, retired former Senate majority leader Harry Reid points to veterans’ first-person accounts of UFOs’ apparent fascination with America’s nuclear stockpiles. An amazing story — but will the media take the bait? A leading authority on the mysterious incursions into U.S. missile fields has learned that 40 years of research haven’t accomplished what The Times managed to do in December: create a UFO buzz that lasts at least two consecutive weeks.

Robert Hastings, the 67-year-old author of 2008’s UFOs & Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites and producer of a 2015 documentary by the same name, has been collecting these stories since he was a teenager. In 2010, he thought he’d finally cracked the nut when CNN live-streamed a press conference he arranged at National Press Club in Washington, D.C. For 87 minutes, seven retired military retirees – including a base commander, a combat crew commander, and a missile-targeting officer – told the world how UFOs breached restricted airspace, hovered near WMD platforms, sometimes swept the facilities with lights and, in at least one case, sabotaged communications between launch control and the nuclear warheads.

In short, these guys delivered the sort of testimony that would, were the elusive offenders linked to a foreign country, spark a debate over quality-control protocols safeguarding our extinction-capacity weapons. Media coverage of the press conference, however, was grudging. “It was a short-lived bump,” says Hastings from his home in Colorado. “And a week later, we were back to business as usual. It was as if it never happened.”

A few places, like Stars and Stripes, played it down the middle. Others took their cues from the likes of Washington Post columnist John Kelly, who gave it the brushoff by informing readers he attended the event for the free cookies. Popular Science distanced itself by hiding behind the sci-fi headline “Paging Fox Mulder.” Alluding to reports of UFOs taking U.S. nuclear warheads off-line in North Dakota, a Wired account chimed in, “Earth is being monitored by intergalactic hippies.” And this from a Forbes reporter: “I don’t take this stuff at face value (to say the least), but I do love a grand yarn.”

Hastings has more than 160 veterans’ “grand yarns” on file, but he’s not optimistic about The Times or any other news gatherer taking the UFO story to the next level. For one thing, the next level includes an entrenched, and disjointed, military bureaucracy suffering from sclerotic thinking in the glasnost department. He regards Luis Elizondo, the former Defense Department analyst who spilled the beans on AATI, as a lonely outlier. Though KLAS-TV’s coverage from Las Vegas cites anonymous sources claiming AATI-related projects produced 36 separate and so-far-unreleased reports, Hastings doubts that spigot has much water left.

“Mr. Elizondo said the reason he left the Pentagon was because of resistence from unnamed persons and organizations who don’t want this sort of information out there,” he said. “It’s the same sort of resistance (USAF Project Blue Book director) Captain (Edward) Ruppelt went up against in the 1950s – he was under a lot of pressure to keep this as quiet as possible.”

More ominously, however, Hastings says a discussion that dives deeper than gun-cam video and accounting ledgers would constitute the “beginning of a slippery slope” and lead to an inevitable confrontation with the UFO abduction thing. That’s a path most advocates of government transparency fear to tread. Yet, says Hastings, some veterans from the Strategic Air Command era – not many, but a handful – have reported classic missing-time scenarios that conform neatly to a very creepy and easily ridiculed subculture of “high strangeness.” Newshounds sniffing his website for leads on the WMD controversy will find a little abduction stuff in the mix as well.

“It’s one thing to accept video and radar data,” he says. “But when you drift into the topic of abduction, it’s a much harder sell. It’s like a bridge too far for most people. But surveillance isn’t the only thing going on here, and there’s been a lot of compartmentalization to get around it. And I’m at a point in my life where it would be dishonest for me not to discuss this publicly.”

Abduction tales are largely absent from this blog, however, because it’s been hard enough trying to goad media colleagues into taking a good hard look at simple radar records. That’s been a 10-year project. Plus, I have at least one thing in common with the SETI astronomers: If we’re talking space aliens, I prefer to appreciate them at a safe distance. Even more specifically, I don’t want to think about these whatevers in my bedroom injecting microscopic tracking devices up my whatever. It’d be like running a marathon when I barely trust my ability to walk.

Anyway, here we are, closing the books on 2017, with the press engaged as never before, but on a toehold, tenuous at best. The same rules remain in play: Without the media, there is no way forward. Sustaining that interest – which could evaporate at any time – poses a unique challenge, at least in this country. Aside from The Times flat-out dropping the ball, what might it take to disperse the new-found media crowd? Apathy, or something worse? The possibilities are endless. Most likely, we’ll find out sooner than later. So bring it on.

UFO Hacked Nuclear Codes

UFO Hacked Nuclear Codes

     Russia and the United States were on the verge of a nuclear war because of the UFO attack on secret military bases on which strategic missiles went on alert.
By zhizn.ru
(rough translation)

Sensational documents and evidence of participants in the events confirm that the Soviet military base in Belokorovichy and the US Air Force Base in Minot were attacked by aliens from outer space. While UFOs were hovering over missile launch sites, in just a few seconds, the security codes for the launch systems of nuclear missiles were cracked, almost unleashing the third world war.

Journalists of “Life” found unique documents about this state of emergency and found eyewitnesses of an alien attack.

For the 20-year-old radio operator of the 50th missile division of the Strategic Missile Force of the Carpathian Military District, Vladimir Matveev, October 4, 1982, was the day he remembered for life. In the evening he and a thousand more soldiers and officers witnessed how a UFO for almost an hour hung over the mines in which the R-12 missiles are located.

– It was incredible – about one and a half kilometers from us hung a huge saucer in the shape of an ellipse, “the former rocket launcher tells the “Life” with excitement. – The size of the UFO was shocking – it was as big as a five-story house! The saucer flashed lights that were barely noticeable. The guys at this time were going to dinner, and everyone saw it! The UFO continued to hover, slowly shifting to the left, as if drifting. One officer tried to approach it closer by car. It did not work out – the UFO flew over the car. At that time, all missile systems suddenly crashed. All equipment, units that were automatically receiving signals, wrote absolute silence on the tape-and this should not happen! After all, even space produces sounds. We were told that everything was burned down!


In his report, Major Mikhail Katsman, in charge of automated control systems, reported that computer technology and security systems had brought out a sudden powerful pulse. He wrote that at the same time all the boards for the missile launching systems for strategic purposes were lit.

“I was witness of all these events and saw the UFO, but I do not have the right to tell what happened to the secret equipment – I signed a on non-disclosure document of state secrets,” Yury Zolotukhin, the former head of the CSBUiS, told the journalist Zhizni.

About what happened in the underground bunker, where there were control panels for the launching of missiles, are evidenced by explanatory notes of officers. The control panels lit up all the bulbs, which meant the full readiness of the missiles to launch.

“The equipment went into combat readiness mode,” recalls the former deputy head of the unit, Yuri Zhuk.

This is possible only after receiving an appropriate order from Moscow. But it was not – it all happened by itself. Officers on duty in the military calculation, suddenly turned gray: the information that appeared on the board, said that all stages of protection against unauthorized launching of missiles were hacked! In just a few seconds, they lost control of nuclear weapons.

Shocked by what had happened, the officers began to call Moscow. They were told that no one gave the order for launch. After 15 seconds, all by itself returned to its normal position.

– A few days later came the commission, which conducted a survey of witnesses. The guys gave them their UFO drawings, – tells the missile Vladimir Matveyev. “One of the officers swore on his party ticket that he was not drunk.” A few days later we were built and read out an order from the Commander in Chief of Strategic Missile Forces No. P010: at sight of the UFO, do not panic and do not open fire. Then I understood why the officers who held their hand “on the button” were not the same age as the old ones.


At the US Air Force Base in Minot, North Dakota, there was a similar case – the American scientist-ufologist, 60-year-old Robert Hastings, told the “Life” journalist about this incident. He is the author of studies related to the activity of UFOs on strategic nuclear facilities. Hastings personally talked with Lieutenant David Schuur, the former commander of the division for the launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

– Schuur told me that in 1966 he was a participant in the events, when the launch of missiles was consistently activated by forces of unidentified objects, “says the ufologist. – Here his words verbatim: “At first the security service of the airbase informed me that a large bright object appeared above us. At a time when the UFO was approaching a rocket, reports appeared on the consoles about their launch. This meant that somehow the missile received a signal about the launch. Each time I had to manually enter the lock so that the start process was stopped. All UFO activities were very similar to the process of scanning missiles. The next day, the command asked them not to tell anyone about this incident. “

“UFOs and Nukes” Documentary Takes On Controversial Topic

UFOs and Nukes – The Secret Link Revealed

By Andrew W. Griffin

usual “cheese” level you can get with “fringe” documentaries of this nature. Hastings makes it clear that this is no joke and that if the unknown individuals piloting these mysterious craft can disable nuclear weapons – or, more scarily – trigger launch countdowns, only to stop them at will – it is something humanity needs to address openly and honestly.

And when Hastings is asked why these UFOs are interfering with humankind’s civilization-ending weapons arsenal, he suggested that “they” are warning humanity not to “play with fire.”

We agree. And seven years ago, CNN took the topic seriously enough to provide coverage of a Washington press conference addressing the subject of UFOs and their links to nukes. Sobering stuff.

2016 MUFON Symposium Keynote Speaker: UFOs and Nukes Researcher Robert Hastings

2016 MUFON Symposium Keynote Speaker: UFOs and Nukes Researcher Robert Hastings

     I have been invited to speak at the upcoming MUFON Symposium in Orlando, Florida, on August 26th.
By Robert Hastings
The UFO Chronicles

Over the past 43 years, I have interviewed more than 150 U.S. military veterans regarding their involvement in UFO incidents at nuclear weapons sites. Seven of those individuals participated in my September 27, 2010 press conference in Washington D.C., which CNN streamed live:

The witness testimony, reinforced by hundreds of declassified documents, convincingly establishes the reality of longstanding, widespread and ongoing UFO activity at ICBM sites, weapons storage facilities, missile test areas, nuclear laboratories and fissile material production plants.

Perhaps most disturbing are the cases during which as many as 10 Minuteman missiles shut down, one after the other, just as U.S. Air Force security guards reported observing a disc-shaped craft silently hovering near their underground silos or launch control center. Other incidents involved the ICBMs suddenly activating for launch, requiring the terrified missile officers to flip an Inhibit Switch to terminate the countdown.

Soviet military documents secured in 1993 by television investigative reporter George Knapp confirm that the Russians also experienced UFO activity at their nuclear missile sites during the Cold War era. Consequently, it appears that some as-yet unidentified third party, operating enormously superior aerial craft, have monitored the nuclear standoff between the Americans and Russians since the 1940s.

Multiple, independent UFO sightings occurred during the widely-publicized October 23, 2010 communications disruption at F.E. Warren AFB, Wyoming, when the base could not contact missile officers in five underground launch centers for an extended period of time. According to my sources, missile maintenance personnel in the field were warned by their commander not to speak of “the things they may or may not have seen” in the sky.

That incident and many others are examined at length in my recently released documentary, UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed, which is now available at Vimeo On Demand. The film will also be shown at the MUFON Symposium, following my lecture.

UFODATA … To Develop and Deploy Portable UFO Detection Technologies

Can open science and secrecy coexist?

     A six-year wait to get an Air Force document released through Freedom of Information Act channels? For a letter written in 1950? Really?

That was longtime investigator Keith Chester’s experience a few weeks ago, when government censors finally cleared a correspondence from an officer with the USAF’s Directorate of Intelligence to the CIA. And it wasn’t like the Air Force was asking for instructions on how to dispose of corpses; it just wanted the Agency to see if it could obtain 70 feet of UFO footage taken by a TV crew

in Louisville, Ky. Sixty-six years later, the request for assistance – not the actual images in question – finally gets declassified.

Data points like these matter because, thanks to the nudge from Hillary Clinton and campaign director John Podesta, the mainstream media is swinging its collective, and so-far superficial, attention to the political ramifications of The Great Taboo for the first time this century. And one of the most unexpected emerging voices to express authentic curiosity about UFOs is former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Chris Mellon.

Two weeks ago, in an interview with author Leslie Kean, and again in The New York Times, a man who also spent more than a decade assessing national security issues for the Senate Intelligence Committee urged readers to seriously re-evaluate an issue long relegated to ridicule and tabloid skank. This wasn’t just a pose. In 2015, Mellon quietly joined the board of UFODATA, a nonprofit working to develop and deploy portable UFO detection technologies through crowdfunding.

But in calling for a clean-slate approach to the mystery – i.e., let’s forge ahead with new science instead of falling back on counterproductive accusations – Mellon has invited considerable skepticism from some researchers who’ve made underground careers using FOIA to dislodge relevant government paper. “In my view,” asserted Mellon, who finds it difficult to believe that UFO secrets could be held under wraps for so many decades, “calling for the end to an alleged government UFO cover-up is almost certainly a dead end, and does not help inspire anyone in government to become more open to the topic.”

That’s probably true. Which agency, organization or foundation wants to launch a good-faith investigation from a defensive posture? But given websites like Project 1947, which showcases layers of the puzzle still being peeled off the onion of World War II, or at the exhaustively detailed Minot AFB UFO and www.ufohastings.com, where scores of military veterans have stepped up to share first-hand accounts of an orchestrated information clampdown, researchers are unmoved by Mellon’s statements about “never detect(ing) the faintest hint of government interest or involvement in UFOs” during his “comprehensive review of DoD’s black programs.”

Brad Sparks, for instance, argues super-secret special access programs (SAP), frequently theorized to be the repositories of government UFO projects – and of which Mellon’s committee had oversight – aren’t the only places to look. “Why limit things to SAPs?” he wonders in an email. “There are ACCMs (Alternative Compensatory Control Measures) that imitate SAPs but are even less accountable, less controlled, and less traceable. There are SCI [Sensitive Compartmented Information] Codeword Compartments where there is no organization, no project, just the existing intelligence agency org acting on and analyzing data within the SCI Codeword Compartments marked on documents.

“… There are SCI Codeword Compartments that eventually become special projects or SAPs. When Ike created the TALENT-KEYHOLE Control System on Feb. 7, 1958, for recon satellites there was no special project or SAP for it, only the existing CIA and AF orgs. TK was just like a classification marking (TOP SECRET/TALENT-KEYHOLE or TS/TK) but with a whole security system, security agents, manuals, indoctrination, etc. Only in 1960 did the AF create a special project office, in effect a SAP, under that SCI Codeword (TK or TK-CS Control System), which became the nucleus of the NRO in 1961-2.”

Confused? Just wait. Mellon’s contention that, if elected, Clinton “should officially task NORAD with collection and analysis responsibility” provoked an exasperated response from Paul Dean. Firing off FOIAs for years, the tenacious Aussie notes how North American Aerospace Command – a bilateral resource-sharing agreement between Canada and the U.S. – receives its space surveillance data from America’s Strategic Command. In a recent recent blogpost, Dean serves up STRATCOM definitions from a 2004 directive which refers to anomalies as Uncorrelated Targets (UCT). STRATCOM divides these mysteries into four categories: Nonsignificant, Significant, Critical, or False.

The UCT section states the Critical designation applies to “any UCT which is suspected to be related to a new foreign launch.” To qualify for the Critical label, a UCT is required to meet at least one of four criteria. But all four of those criteria are redacted from a document whose original status was classified “Secret.” The origins of UCT terminology go back for decades, and in efforts to get a coherent handle on the intelligence infrastructure monitoring the high frontier, Dean says he and his FOIA collaborators have met institutional resistance every step of the way.

“Everyone thinks about questions of ‘UFO coverup,’” he states in an email, “but they also imagine that the evidence … can be easily served up on a silver platter, like one PDF or one youtube video or whatever. The reality is that it has become backbreaking work. All day I’m disentangling obfuscated, out-of-order, incomplete documentation, filing FOIAs or MDRs, [mandatory declassification review] battling with bureaucracies for every scrap of paper … Nothing can be slapped together willy-nilly.”

Which begs the question: If support builds for the sort of open and legitimate scientific inquiry urged by Chris Mellon, would the success of such a project be contingent upon removing the historical context of secrecy from the discussion? Certainly the UFO transparency campaign proffered by Podesta/Clinton implies secrecy as an obstacle to clarity. Is an honest above-board study possible without trespassing into national security turf? Are we smart enough to strike a balance? And what, exactly, would it take to inspire public confidence in the integrity of such a study?

‘We Now Know That UFOs Were Present at The Dawn Of The Nuclear Age’

UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed

An appeal to USAF veterans

By Billy Cox
De Void

      Thanks to diligent research, eyewitness testimony, and Fourth Air Force documents, we now know that UFOs were present at the dawn of the nuclear age. Or at least they were caught snooping around the plutonium factory near Hanford, Wash., between December 1944 and January 1945. Security pickets surrounding the top-secret development of the world’s biggest bomb were concerned enough to redeploy searchlights, radar, and interceptors in hopes of putting a stop to the overflights.

This is not where Robert Hastings’ independently produced 45-minute documentary “UFOS and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed” actually begins (see excerpt below). De Void mentions it only because Hastings’ video treatment – based on his 2008 book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites – is merely the introduction to an exceedingly weird and complex story, at least 70 years long and counting. Yet, within that introduction, augmented by archived footage, vintage news clippings, federal documents and on-camera interviews with 15 veterans or contractors, Hastings provides the sort of context that only flat-liners or hard-core ostriches could dismiss with a shrug.

“Saucer Visits A-Bomb Site,” “Two Jets Reported in Saucer Pursuit Over Los Alamos,” “Flying Saucer Reported at Site of H-Bomb Plant” – from the Nevada Test Site to the Pacific Proving Grounds, back when the military was nominally more candid with the press than it is today, blurbs about unauthorized surveillance were cropping up in newspapers across the U.S. Hastings, as readers of his book are aware, is interested in the guys inside the wire, the Cold War missile-site veterans. Decades removed from active duty and possible retaliation, they discuss not only what they saw, but how they were told to keep their mouths shut about it.

“UFOs and Nukes” argues that airspace around America’s launch platforms began being compromised as early as 1962. “Air Force security personnel guarding these sensitive sites reported seeing unknown aerial objects, usually described as disc-shaped,” it claims, “maneuvering at low altitude and sometimes even hovering over launch silos and launch control facilities at every ICBM base in the United States.” Leaving radar signatures and jet interceptors behind, the bogeys became a public-relations problem as a consequence. “Baffled military officials had to deal with these unexplained and alarming incidents on an ongoing basis,” says the documentary, “while trying their best to keep the facts from their fellow Americans, many of whom believed the UFO phenomenon to be a nonsensical subject and having no basis in reality.”

But Hastings puts the aging and now uninhibited eyewitnesses on camera, and their stories are often dramatic. Take retired Maj. Gaylan King, whose strike team at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota, responding to a security warning in 1966, saw an object throw a red beam of light onto a subterranean silo. “I assume they were taking data with that beam, it wasn’t destructive as far as I know,” King recalled. “It had to be a data collection thing, I’m sure they scanned a warhead or something.” Or former Capt. David Schindele, same year, reporting how UFOs took a flight of missiles “off alert” at Minot AFB in North Dakota: “This was a very serious incident.” And in an audiotaped interview, former first lieutenant David Shuur related how – also in 1966, separate incident – one launch-control console at Minot showed a missile in countdown mode during a flyby.

The recorded testimony and/or notes of four men responding to the 1967 shutdown of 10 ICBMs at Malmstrom AFB in Montana bluntly repudiate the assurances of USAF Blue Book boss Maj. Hector Quintanilla, who declared the phenomenon “does not present a threat to national security of the United States.” But it wasn’t just the U.S. in denial. “UFOs and Nukes” touts post-Soviet documents and testimony underscoring the hair-raising incidents unfolding half a world away, including a launch-sequence activation in Ukraine attributed to UFO activity.

Stylistically, what sets this narrative apart from many others that too often resort to sensationalist bells and whistles is its evenly modulated presentation. True, there are re-enactments included, and the CGI employed here took a major share of the $145,000 production budget. But they’re judiciously employed and not nearly as distracting as the spectacular failures that characterize so much standard cable fare. Maybe it’s impossible to put together a documentary on The Great Taboo without relying on special effects. National Geographic used CGI with great precision in 2010 to get a handle on the Phoenix Lights phenomenon of 1997. At any rate, Hastings gets a lot of mileage out of a shoestring.

Again, much of “UFOs and Nukes” covers territory that many will find familiar. But ultimately, the documentary isn’t for that crowd. Hastings is looking for even more military eyewitnesses, and he closes the show with his website contact. Getting this project to large and diverse audiences is the obvious challenge. But if it can persuade silent veterans to contribute additional missing pieces to this puzzle, maybe that will generate the kind of noise not even corporate media can ignore.

Hangar 1: ‘This Series is Slow Suicide for MUFON’

Hangar 1: 'This Series is Slow Suicide for MUFON'

And that’s the way it is

By Billy Cox
De Void

     Following the second-season premiere of “Hangar 1” a couple of weeks back, De Void decided to skip the rest of the Red Bull-paced bells & whistles that the History Channel marketing slicks insist it takes to hold 21st-century audiences. The NBA playoffs are in full swing now, and Friday nights are usually reserved for disco-ing, so time management’s a BFD for me. Because you can tell by the way I use my walk I’m a woman’s man, no time to talk.

Anyhow, the aftermath of “Hanger 1’s” third episode, “The Far Side of the Moon,” triggered an email from “UFOs and Nukes” author Robert Hastings, which lured me back into the mire. Hastings has interviewed more than a hundred USAF veterans testifying to decades of UFO activity making a joke of security around America’s nuclear arsenal, and has just finished crafting their stories into a documentary. Along the way, Hastings turned down several cable offers that would have cost him creative and editorial control, and probably would’ve made his research look like, well, “Hangar 1.” But last Friday night’s installment, which speculated the U.S. is operating secret military bases on Mars and the moon, really set him off.

“This series is slow suicide for MUFON,” declared Hastings, referring to the private research group which has turned its 45-year-deep case files over to the History Channel. “Whatever credibility the organization had is ebbing away. Their membership may be up — a sad testament to be sure, if the show is responsible for that — but their association with Hangar 1 has severely and negatively impacted ufology’s attempt to be recognized as an endeavor worthy of respect.”

Ever the sucker for train wrecks, De Void tuned in, online, for the full monty, and wow, yeah, shew. There were actually some interesting assertions begging more details, such as how “hundreds” of ham operators recorded Apollo 11’s missing 2-minute tape-recorded astronaut chatter about seeing UFOs on the moon, and Buzz Aldrin’s 16mm film of a bright white dot skirting the lunar surface. But that stuff got lost as “Hangar 1” went all Michael Bay and regurgitated Monuments of Mars author Richard Hoagland’s mile-high crystal towers on the moon, “interstellar soldier” Randy Kramer’s eyewitness riffs on genetically enhanced super-soldiers pulling picket duty at lunar and Martian outposts, and — no wait. De Void’s not gonna make this easy for you. You need to sit through it yourself right here.

Here’s what caught De Void a little flat-footed.

De Void called John Schuessler, Mutual UFO Network co-founder and board member, for his take on “Hangar 1.” As a McDonnell Douglas’ erstwhile director of engineering and project manager for Space Shuttle Flight Operations at Johnson Space Center, Schuessler spent a career trouble-shooting real-world challenges on the high frontier. Schuessler confessed he missed Friday night’s show and said “I can tell you that most of us (at MUFON) don’t believe in such a thing (off-world U.S. military bases).” But he also said MUFON’s been caught in a pickle for decades.

“We’ve been accused of being a in black hole where information keeps going in but we never tell anybody everything we’ve got,” he said. “Well, we have files on almost everything. It doesn’t mean we’ve verified everything or that we believe everything we’ve got. So it’s a double-edged sword. Production companies take what they want and they’re free to use artistic license — that’s business.”

Schuessler declined to name names for the record, but he said one cable network decided to abolish all UFO programming because it conflicted with the religious beliefs of its owner. “I’m not kidding,” he said. Which, he added, makes MUFON’s new venue at History — however erratic or sensationalist its UFO productions may be — a gamble worth taking. And here’s why.

“In general,” he said, “this show has done more to open up channels of discussion than anything we’ve ever been involved with before. It’s a tradeoff, but it’s paying off for us, we’re getting more data. And that’s the whole point.

“I haven’t seen Friday night’s show, but I can guarantee you — even as controversial as that one apparently was — people with other parts of the puzzle will come forward. That’s what’s happening. Maybe, in this case, we’ll get confirming information that it’s all wet. But we’re getting feedback from people we’ve never heard from before.”

Well, there you go. Still, De Void can’t help wondering how it would work if the History producers played it straight. On the other hand, maybe this is as good as it’s ever going to get, and the formula strokers really are geniuses.

Before blowing the whistle on America’s illegal covert Cold War activities, Victor Marchetti was a 14-year CIA veteran ultimately promoted to executive assistant to The Agency’s Deputy Director. After resigning in 1969, he wrote two exposes — 1971’s The Rope Dancer, and The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence in 1974. The latter, which the federal government attempted to ban from publication, was among the many slings and arrows contributing to the formation of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearings in 1975.

In 1979, Marchetti stoked yet another controversy by providing a rare if not largely speculative glimpse into the mindset of The Agency’s uneasy relationship with The Great Taboo. Titled “How the CIA Views the UFO Phenomenon,” Marchetti’s magazine piece took a cautious approach. “The topic was rarely discussed at internal meetings,” he wrote. “It seemed to fall into the category of ‘very sensitive activities,’ e.g., drug and mind-control operations, domestic spying, and other illegal actions. People simply did not talk about the UFO phenomenon.”

Thanks to an assist from UFOs and Nukes author Robert Hastings, De Void is posting the article in its entirely. It’s a lengthy piece — you probably won’t have time to read it at your work desk. But it’s worth your time to see how little has changed, even with nearly 36 years worth of additional data, the collapse of the USSR, and allegations of buried UFO material from yet another former CIA operator three years ago.

How the CIA Views the UFO Phenomenon

May 1979

     There are many myths, few facts, and much speculation about what the CIA knows of the UFO phenomenon. These, combined with the public’s distrust of the clandestine agency, have led to a strong popular belief that the CIA is at the center of a government-wide conspiracy to cover-up the truth about UFOs. It usually follows that the cover-up is designed to keep us ignorant, or at least confused and doubtful, about contacts or visitations by intelligent beings from outer space. Thus, if we only knew what the CIA knows, and is covering up, we would be better able to understand and deal with aliens. And that would be a good thing. I do not know from my own firsthand experience if there are UFOs. I have never seen one. Nor have I seen conclusive, empirical, or physical evidence that they really exist. But, I do know that the CIA and U.S. Government have been concerned over the UFO phenomenon for many years and that their attempts, both past and recent, to discount the significance of the phenomenon and to explain away the apparent lack of official interest in it have all the earmarkings of a classic intelligence cover-up. My theory is that we have, indeed, been contacted–perhaps even visited– by extraterrestrial beings, and that the U.S. Government, in collusion with other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public. The purpose of the international conspiracy is to maintain a workable stability among the nations of the world and for them, in turn, to retain institutional control over their respective populations. Thus, for these governments to admit there are beings from outer space attempting to contact us, beings with mentalities and technological capabilities obviously far superior to ours, could, once fully perceived by the average person, erode the foundations of the Earth’s traditional power structure. Political and legal systems, religions, economic and social institutions could all soon become meaningless in the mind of the public. The national oligarchical establishments, even civilization as we know it, could collapse into anarchy. Such extreme conclusions are not necessarily valid, but they probably accurately reflect the fears of the “ruling class” of the major nations, whose leaders (particularly those in the intelligence business) have always advocated excessive governmental secrecy as being necessary to preserve “national security.” The real reason for such secrecy is, of course, to keep the public uninformed, misinformed, and, therefore, malleable. During my years in the CIA, UFOs were not a subject of common discussion. But neither were they treated in a disdainful or derisive manner, especially not by the agency’s scientists. Instead, the topic was rarely discussed at internal meetings. It seemed to fall into the category of “very sensitive activities”, e.g., drug and mind-control operations, domestic spying, and other illegal actions. People simply did not talk about the UFO phenomenon. There were, however, rumors at high levels of the CIA…..rumors of unexplained sightings by qualified observers, of strange signals being received by the National Security Agency (the US Government’s electronic intercept and communications intelligence collector), and even of little gray men whose ships had crashed, or had been shot down, being kept “on ice” by the Air Force at FTD (Foreign Technology Division) at Wright- Patterson AF Base in Dayton, Ohio. And there was the odd case of the lady from Maine who, while in a hypnotic trance, had allegedly communicated with a starship. Most of these rumors, I found to be unimpressive—except for the strange signals from outer space being received by NSA. Perhaps that was because I had once been an NSA officer. Or perhaps it was because I had frequent contact with that agency while serving with the CIA, and the little I learned of the signals was treated with extreme caution even by SIGINT standards. But let us assume that there have been contacts by intelligent beings from beyond the Earth. How would the CIA and US Government respond to such a phenomenon? The first order of business would be to determine whether UFOs were secret weapons of the Soviet Union or some other foreign nation. The task of coordinating this program would be given to the CIA because it is the President’s personal intelligence organization and the nation’s only non- departmental, or independent, intelligence component. As such, it is charged, among other things, with performing “services of common concern” which relate to “intelligence affecting the national security.” However, the military intelligence services, NSA, and other agencies and departments would also participate in the collection and analytical efforts under the program. If it were concluded that UFOs were not of terrestrial origin but, rather, vehicles from outer space, the next step would be to assess their weaponry capabilities and the intentions of the aliens controlling the ships. At this point, the CIA and US Government, aware that the phenomenon was of a worldwide nature, would seek cooperation in the investigation from the Earth’s other technically advanced nations, such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and even the USSR. The CIA would function as the US Government’s agent, just as the KGB would be the USSR’s, MI-6 would be the UK’s, and so on. These agencies, in addition to specializing in secrecy and deceit, are quite accustomed to cooperating with each other on matters of mutual interest. Cooperation in the intelligence business is not restricted to allies. There are times when the CIA and KGB have found it advantageous to work together. One example is the production and publication of Khrushchev Remembers, the “memoirs” of the former Soviet leader–a ruse on the public which is actively being continued to this day. Furthermore, both the CIA and KGB sometimes “declare,” i.e. identify, their officers to each other in order to facilitate the smooth functioning of clandestine intelligence activities. Even the famous U-2 program was conducted with mutual understanding –until the Soviets shot down Francis Gary Powers. According to the Chief of the CIA’s Clandestine Services it was an example of two hostile governments collaborating to keep operations secret from general public of both nations. “Unfortunately, there aren’t enough of these situations,” he said. But before full cooperation on the UFO phenomena was achieved, there might be a period of suspicion and perhaps competition, each government hoping to gain some advantage over the others through the use of aliens and their superior scientific knowledge. It would soon, however, become apparent to all the nations involved that this was not feasible and that the UFO phenomenon was a common problem. Thus, cooperation, secret cooperation, would become a fact. Later, after further study, if it were judged that UFOs were harmless, perhaps even unarmed, vehicles from outer space controlled by aliens seeking merely to observe the Earth and its peculiar inhabitants….like so many galactic Jane Goodall’s studying chimps in their native environment….and, therefore, presented no direct, hostile threat to the Earth’s power structure, then another collective decision would have to be made. Should the public be told the full and true story of the phenomenon ? It is unlikely, for the reasons mentioned earlier, that any government aware of the UFO facts would deem it necessary or wise to inform its people of the truth. Governments prefer an ignorant and gullible public because an unknowing public is much more easily manipulated. In fact, that is one of the major reasons for so much governmental secrecy and official disinformation. Once the international cover-up had been decided, the CIA and US Government would act pretty much the way they have with regard to the UFO phenomenon. There would be a prestigious scientific group (the Robertson Panel) convened to declare that UFOs were no threat to the national security. The fact that the panel’s conclusions were not immediately made public is of no great consequence. Here, the primary consideration would be to turn off the speculation brewing among the military, bureaucrats, and other secondary levels (including the US Congress) of the governmental apparatus. The information would eventually filter down to the news media and public. But, because of the intensity of public curiosity, a formal investigation (Project Blue Book) would be launched, after a couple of false starts. And when public interest continued to build, another scientific panel (the Condon Group) was assembled to assure us that there were no such things as UFOs. With that accomplished the US Government–the Earth’s spokesman on the issue–could call off all further official investigations, slamming the lid of secrecy on the problem. But despite governmental proclamations, the sightings–often by astronauts, professional pilots, and even prospective presidents–have continued. Public pressure is again building for an honest, authoritative explanation of UFOs. Of all the evidence that exist with regard to UFOs, the single, most impressive item (to my mind) is the Jimmy Carter experience. One night in Georgia in 1973, the man who was destined to become the President of the US and his son, Jeff, saw what they believed to be a UFO. Three years later when campaigning for the presidency , Carter promised to make “every piece of information the country has about UFOs available to the public.” He never fulfilled that pledge. Nor has he ever again spoken out publicly on the subject. Meanwhile, his White House staff has parried all queries on the matter and both his Director of NASA, Robert Frosch, and Secretary of Defense Harold Brown, have officially dismissed the UFO phenomenon as nothing more than something that exists only in the public’s imagination. This sequence of events can mean only one of three things. What Jimmy Carter saw in 1973 was:

• A) a reflection of a physical event which has since been explained to him:

• B) the testing of a secret weapon to which he is now privy, but for reasons of “national security” it is still a secret: or

• C) a UFO.

If what President Carter saw falls into category “a,” there is no reason why he could not publicly say so. As presidents go, he has been relatively humble and honest on other matters of personal embarrassment. If it falls into category “b,” there is again no reason why he should not admit to the fact. There is no way that such a weapon system could possibly still be a secret from the Soviets. But if what he saw was a UFO–and there is a secret international agreement among the great powers to withhold this information from the people–then Mr. Carter would act exactly the way he has. He is neither smart enough nor tough enough to override the pressures of the Establishment. Thus, the CIA would be called upon once again. This time to release to the public all the information it has regarding the UFO phenomenon…..after, of course, the usual and long ritualistic procedures of litigation under the Freedom of Information Act. We can safely assume, however, that the CIA would not disclose everything it knows or that it would reveal any data it believes would not advance the UFO cover-up. The CIA, like other intelligence organization, has little respect for the public’s right to know. It is an attitude they all consistently display. Ironically, however, among the vast body of circumstantial evidence pointing to the existence of UFOs or contacts from outer space, the FOIA documents recently provided by the CIA have done more to make the public suspect there is an official conspiracy than any of the recent sightings or reports of encounters. In fact, the entire FOIA exercise has the same aroma of the agency’s previous messy efforts to hide its involvement in drugs and mind-control operations, both prime examples of a successful intelligence cover-up. The CIA, under the scrutiny of Congress, admitted only to experiments and a few operational indiscretions which occurred mostly in the 1950’s and 60’s. There was little or no disclosure of the full operational use of drugs and mind control techniques. The stratagem employed by the agency was, as it is known in the business, a “limited hangout,” i.e., admitting to a few past errors then declaring the program has ended and, therefore, there is nothing else to tell. With that, all investigations come to a halt. The FOIA/UFO exercise is stained with the same telltale spottiness. Furthermore, the conduct and conclusions of the Robertson Panel (1953) and the Colorado Group (1969) are suspiciously similar to those concerning another great mystery–the JFK assassination. The findings of the Warren Commission in 1964 and, for all practical purposes, those of the House Select Committee on Assassinations (1978/9) differ from the UFO studies only in that the former sought to promote a “lone nut killer” hypothesis while the latter offered a “multiple nut believer” explanation. Regardless of its shortcomings, the recently released CIA information does, however, tell us something…perhaps more than the government thinks. From the very beginning in 1947, the CIA closely monitored UFO reports on a worldwide basis. Although most of the FOIA documents indicate only a routine interest in the problem which was handled largely by the Foreign Broadcast Information Service. Foreign Documents Division, and the Domestic Contact Service–all innocuous, non-clandestine collection units–they also disclose by inference a standing requirement of the Directorate of Science and Technology for gathering UFO data. This, in turn, indicates other collection components, namely the Clandestine Services, the CIA’s main directorate, was tasked with providing information from all over the world on the UFO phenomenon. However, few such reports were released–and that implies a cover-up ! By 1953, the US Government, acting through the CIA and using the vehicle of the Robertson Panel, had clearly decided to cap the persistent public rumors of UFO sightings and extraterrestrial contacts. The panel concluded that UFOs were not a direct or hostile threat to national security but that continued emphasis of the phenomenon could clog the communication channels of the establishment or cultivate a morbid national psychology which enemy propaganda might exploit. For good measure, the panel recommended that the public should be “educated” to recognize real hostile actions against the nation and the UFOs be stripped of their “mysterious aura.” Very nifty. The tone and timing of the Robertson Panel were almost perfect. In early 1953, the nation was preoccupied with the Korean War in particular and the Cold War in general. Stalin was not yet dead. There were almost daily confrontations with Communists somewhere in the world. A new terror weapon had just been introduced into the arms race–the hydrogen bomb. General Curtis LeMay of the Strategic Air Command was warning of the “bomber gap.” And Senator Joe McCarthy was scaring the bejesus out of everybody in Washington, including the CIA. Furthermore, there was no self-respecting accredited scientist prepared to risk his reputation by challenging the government’s position on UFOs. Thus, the Robertson Panel provided an excellent opportunity to sweep the phenomenon under the rug of official secrecy. There is one other thing about the Robertson Panel that has always puzzled me. Nowhere in its report does the panel deny the existence of UFOs. The panel only addresses the question of UFOs as a “possible threat to national security” and concludes there is no direct evidence indicating such a threat. Could it be that the evidence showed that UFOs did exist, but the data revealed that the extraterrestrial contacts were of a benign nature, i.e., there were no “foreign artifacts capable of hostile acts” and, therefore no “direct physical threat to national security?” After the Robertson Panel, there was a curious development. The CIA, according to the FOIA documents, apparently faded into the background. The Air Force assumed responsibility for the UFO problem and initiated a series of reviews culminating in Project Blue Book and the Condon’s Colorado Study. But the CIA continued “unofficially” to follow developments concerning the phenomenon…and to display an uneasy, overly cautious, even defensive attitude toward outside curiosity about its UFO work. In fact, during the preparation of the Condon Panel’s report, the CIA reacted so skittishly in providing aid to the panel that one can only wonder if the agency was attempting to hide something from the Air Force…..not an unusual occurrence in the inter-tribal relations of the US intelligence community. The performance is reminiscent of how the CIA responded to the first public revelations that it was deeply involved in illegal drug and domestic spying operations. In December 1969, the findings of the Condon Panel were made public by the Department of Defense. Again, it was concluded that UFOs were no threat to national security, and we were given the added assurance that those sightings (roughly one-half of one percent) categorized as “unidentified” evidenced no technical capabilities beyond our scientific knowledge. A rather odd commentary. In addition, the panel stated there was no evidence that UFO sightings (not contacts or signals) represented extraterrestrial visitations. A flat statement that was supported by no empirical evidence…..only the panel’s opinion. Were the panelists again begging the question? With the release of the Condon Report, Project Blue Book was canceled, and the Air Force, like the CIA , seemed to drop out of the UFO business. The timing of the Condon Report, like that of the Robertson Panel, was, to say the least, interesting. We were fighting–and losing–a war in Vietnam. There was severe domestic turmoil caused by the civil rights and peace movements. Again, the nation was not, at the time, much concerned with UFOs. Perhaps that is why the government opted for a flat denial. It was another excellent chance to stop all the speculation about UFOs and to further sweep the phenomenon under the rug of official secrecy. But ten years have gone by since the Air Force allegedly closed its UFO shop and more than fifteen years since the CIA claims to have lost interest in the subject. The sightings and contacts, however, continue –not only by questionable sources. Even the President of the United States thinks he saw a UFO. Thus, we are left with five possible conclusions.

ONE: The US Government is trying to keep certain super weapon systems secret from the Soviets. In this age of advanced electronic, photographic, and other intelligence sensors, when the testing of a new system begins by any nation, the other participants in the geopolitical game soon learn of it. TWO: The US Government, in cooperation with its allies, is playing a game with such rivals as the USSR, trying to confuse them with false reports of UFOs. The state of the art in intelligence collection and analysis, as well as science, precludes the possibility of such a ruse. THREE: The US and its allies are attempting to keep UFOs a secret from the USSR. The Soviets, however, are as astute in space science as we are. If we know about UFOs, so do they…and so do all the technically advanced nations. FOUR: There are no UFOs, nor have there ever been any contacts from outer space. However, the amount of circumstantial evidence to the contrary (including indications that our planet may have been visited in the distant past by extraterrestrials) argues against this conclusion–or at least for further study of the UFO phenomenon. FIVE: There are UFOs or there have been contacts–if only signals –from outer space, but the evidence reveals the aliens are interested only in observing us. They have no hostile intentions and are no direct threat to any nation. But public knowledge of these facts could become a threat. If the existence of UFOs were to be officially confirmed, a chain reaction could be initiated that would result in the collapse of the Earth’s present power structure. Thus, a secret international understanding–a conspiracy — has been agreed to by the world powers to keep the public ignorant of and confused about contacts or visitations from beyond Earth.

“UFOs and Nukes” by Noted American Researcher Robert Hastings Released By Kopp Verlag

UFOs and Atomwaffen By Robert Hastings

     Rottenburg am Neckar: Declassified U.S. government documents and the testimony of American military veterans confirm the reality of ongoing UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites. Kopp Verlag announces the German edition of researcher Robert Hastings’ book UFOs and Nukes: Spooky Encounters Near Nuclear Weapon Storage Areas, available here.

On September 27, 2010, CNN live-streamed Hastings’ “UFOs and Nukes” press conference in Washington D.C. (see video below), during which seven U.S. Air Force veterans divulged their involvement in still-classified UFO incidents at nuclear missile launch facilities and nuclear weapon storage depots.

According to these former officers, the UFOs repeatedly hovered over ICBM sites in the 1960s and ‘70s, sometimes disrupting the missiles’ functionality. Video of the press event may be viewed at www.ufohastings.com.

Other former U.S. military personnel interviewed by Hastings have described UFO incidents at U.S. Army nuclear depots in Germany during the Cold War era, including one at a missile warhead storage site at Fischbach bei Dahn in 1974. According to the witness, a former Military Policeman, a domed, disc-shaped craft briefly hovered over the depot, triggering alarms and causing a temporary electrical power failure at the site.

Over the past 42 years, Hastings has interviewed more than 150 U.S. military veterans regarding their involvement in nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents, one occurring as recently as October 23, 2010. Moreover, documents smuggled out of Russia in the early 1990s confirm that UFOs also visited Soviet nuclear missile sites.

The book presents a wealth of evidence confirming incursions by unknown observers, piloting technologically-advanced aerial craft, who monitored and even disrupted both superpowers’ nuclear weapons during the Cold War.

Neuerscheinung beim Kopp-Verlag: “UFOs und Atomwaffen” vom renommierten amerikanischen UFO-Phänomen-Forscher Robert Hastings

     Rottenburg am Neckar (ots) – Ehemals geheime Dokumente der US-Regierung und Zeugenaussagen amerikanischer Militärveteranen belegen die Realität von UFO-Überflügen über Atomwaffenbasen und Atomtestgeländen! Der Kopp-Verlag gibt das Erscheinen der deutschen Ausgabe von Robert Hastings Buch mit dem Titel “UFOs und Atomwaffen – Unheimliche Begegnungen in der Nähe von Nuklearwaffendepots” bekannt:


Auf Robert Hastings Pressekonferenz “UFOs and Nukes”, die am 27. September 2010 von CNN live übertragen wurde, berichten sieben US-Air-Force-Veteranen über bis heute von den Behörden geheim gehaltene UFO-Vorfälle über Atomraketensilos und Atomwaffendepots in den USA.

Aus den Zeugenaussagen geht hervor, dass unidentifizierbare Objekte in den 1960er und ’70er Jahren wiederholt über Abschussvorrichtungen für Interkontinentalraketen (ICBMs) schwebten und in einigen Fällen sogar die Atomraketen selbst beeinflussten. Hier ein Link zum Video der Pressekonferenz: http://www.ufohastings.com

Aus Interviews mit ehemaligen US-Militärs geht ebenfalls hervor, dass während des Kalten Krieges auch über Atomwaffenbasen in Deutschland UFOs gesichtet wurden, wie beispielsweise 1974 in Fischbach bei Dahn. In diesem Fall berichtete der Zeuge, ein ehemaliger Angehöriger der Militärpolizei, dass ein scheibenförmiges Objekt über dem Stützpunkt schwebte und dabei einen Alarm auslöste. Auch der Strom fiel zeitweise aus.

Während der vergangenen 42 Jahre hat Hastings mehr als 150 Veteranen des US-Militärs zu UFO-Vorfällen über Atomwaffeneinrichtungen befragt – darunter auch ein jüngerer Vorfall vom 23. Oktober 2010. Dokumente, die während der frühen 1990er Jahre aus Russland herausgeschmuggelt wurden, belegen, dass UFOs auch russische Atomraketensilos überflogen.

Das Buch “UFOs und Atomwaffen” liefert eine Fülle an Beweisen für Zwischenfälle mit technologisch hoch entwickelten Flugobjekten, die von einer fremden Intelligenz gesteuert werden und die während des Kalten Krieges die Atomwaffen beider Großmächte überwacht und manipuliert haben.
