This blatantly intentional action of shutting down nuclear missiles by the intelligences guiding UFOs is far from unique to the Malmstron case - for a comprehensive and absolutely first-class overview of the long history of such cases, read Robert Hastings' book "UFOs and Nukes." In the Malmstron case, as in others, the USAF ensured the witnesses were effectively silenced and there was a news media blackout. Only in 2005, now retired, did Salas finally speak out in public and write this excellent, if short, book with James Klotz.
In "Faded Giant" Salas and Klotz tell the full story of the 1967 Malmstrom Incident, and put the event in context with accounts of similar UFO/military interactions, some involving nuclear missiles (the "Big Sur" incident for example).Read more ›
It's unfortunate that the so-called news gathering departments of the major media outlets don't care about the US loosing 20 ICBMs to what appears to be several alien craft violating the most strategic airspace in the world.
If you are seriously interested in subject matter dealing with UFOs, national security, or simply the profound truth behind the absurd political legerdemain of misdirection, this book is a must read.
Unless you assume Salas and Klotz are liars readers are left with some tough calls. The witnesses underwent thorough background investigations and were charged with storing, guarding, and firing nuclear weapons. Were they all pathological liars? Were they hallucinating on duty? Or are the witnesses are telling the truth and something else is interested in and can possibly control our most critical weapon systems? Pretty sobering stuff.
missiles. These missile silos are spread over the western states. In Montana, these missiles
went into shutdown, non functioning mode on their own, much to the amazement of the missile operators and the top military brass. And there in the sky, and outside the front gate of the military base, were hovering orange balls. When the orange balls sped away, the missiles mysteriously returned to ready to lauch mode.
No reason for this inoperable state was ever found. And perhaps even more disturbing, no official explanation or even any written account from the military of this situation was ever done!!! The military just pretended it never happened! We are talking about our national defense. And apparently, there is no national defense in the form of functioning missiles.
This author is a respected journalist, who interviewed all involved. Most are now retired and talking openly to her about it. There was within the past month a National Press Club conference where the retired military officers who were in charge at the time discussed details and answered questions about this subject. Excellent piece of investigative journalism here about a subject that many are scared to talk about.
