Beings from another world are trying to promote world peace.
That was the main takeaway from a news conference Monday at the National Press Club about UFO activity that featured several former airmen who saw UFOs on or near Air Force bases with nuclear weapons.
“I believe – these gentlemen believe – that this planet is being visited by beings from another world, who, for whatever reason, have taken an interest in the nuclear arms race which began at the end of World War II,” said UFO researcher Robert Hastings, who was at Monday’s news conference.
Hastings said he has talked to more than 120 former servicemembers who have seen UFOs near where nuclear weapons are stored and tested. Some of those incidents involve UFOs deactivating nuclear missiles, he said.
“Regarding the missile shutdown incidents, my opinion – their opinion – is that whoever are aboard these craft are sending a signal to both Washington and Moscow, among others, that we are playing with fire,” he said.
In 1967, former Air Force Capt. Robert Salas was in an underground capsule at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana when the security forces above told him they had spotted a red glowing object just in front of the base’s front gate.
After telling the airmen above not to let the object get past the perimeter fence, the 10 ICBMs he had purview over suddenly became deactivated, Salas said. He feels the aliens were sending a message, literally shining a light on nuclear weapons.
“They could have a lot more damage, permanent damage, to our weapons systems, and they didn’t,” Salas said. “If they wanted to destroy them, with all the powers they seem to have, I think they could have done that job, so I personally don’t think this was a hostile intent.”
Hastings said UFO sightings near nuclear weapons are ongoing with the latest sighting occurring at Malmstrom in 2007, but a spokeswoman for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations said there is no UFO report about the alleged incident.
When asked about Monday’s news conference, the Air Force referred to a fact sheet on its website on UFOs that says,“No UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security.”
Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Dwynne Arneson was officer in charge of the communications center at the 28th Air Division in Great Falls, Montana in 1967 when he saw a message about UFOs shutting down nuclear missiles in Montana. He later was stationed at a base in Maine where UFOs were spotted near a nuclear weapons storage area.
He has many questions about these sightings: “Are they extraterrestrial? Who knows. Are they from other dimensions? Who knows. Are they from underneath the earth? Who knows. Your guess is as good as mine.”
