Tomorrow morning President Obama gives a speech in Prague outlining his plans for a nuclear weapons free world. Obama indicated his intentions in comments at Strasbourg, France: "Even with the Cold War now over, the spread of nuclear weapons or the theft of nuclear material could lead to the extermination of any city on the planet. And this weekend in Prague, I will lay out an agenda to seek the goal of a world without nuclear weapons." The last U.S. President to seek a nuclear weapons free world was President Ronald Reagan who proposed it to Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986. Reagan’s bold proposal quickly died with Soviet opposition to Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative. Obama’s intent to take steps towards a nuclear weapons free world has already been welcomed by many scientists, elder statesmen and national security organizations. If a select group of former military whistleblowers are to be believed, there are also others that will be happy to see the eradication of nuclear weapons - extraterrestrial occupants of UFOs.
On March 16, 1967, Captain Robert Salas (ret. USAF) was stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base when seven or eight nuclear minuteman missiles that were part of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) were deactivated by UFOs. Salas described the incident as follows:
I was ... on duty at Oscar Flight as part of the 490th strategic missile squad and there are five launch control facilities assigned to that particular squadron.... I received a call from my topside security guard... and he said that he and some of the guards had been observing some strange lights flying around the site around the launch control facility…. I said, You mean UFO? He said, well, he didn't know what they were but they were lights and were flying around. They were not airplanes. They were not helicopters. They weren't making any noise... [A little later] our missiles started shutting down one by one. By shutting down, I mean they went into a "no-go" condition meaning they could not be launched…. These weapons were Minuteman One missiles and were of course nuclear-tipped warhead missiles... this incident was of extreme concern to SAC headquarters because they couldn't explain it.
Salas also claims that a similar occurrence involving ten minuteman missiles at another nearby SAC facility, Echo Flight, led to a high level inquiry by the USAF. Salas described his surprise when the investigation was terminated and he was instructed to remain silent. Salas’ testimony has been corroborated by other military whistleblowers such as Lt Colonel Dwynne Arneson who was also stationed at Malmstrom Air Force base in 1967, and read a top-secret communication confirming that UFOs were hovering near missile silos. Additional military whistleblowers confirming Salas' version of events have also come forward. Their testimonies are available in an online 2006 article by Robert Hastings where he reviews the testimony of twenty military witnesses of UFOs at ICBM sites and nuclear weapons storage facilities.
