Looking for UFOs? Look for WMDs.
Is there a UFO – nuclear weapon connection?
When looking for paranormal reports… well, I never know where I’ll find something off-the-wall. It’s the nature of this field.
However, this report is an odd one: U.S. Nuclear Weapons Have Been Compromised by Unidentified Aerial Objects (article at Wayback Machine).
It’s filed at Reuters. That’s not where I’d expect a report like this. (If that link is broken, search on the article title. It’s probably somewhere.)
So, if I were a UFO tracker — which I’m not, except as part of my larger paranormal research — I’d probably point my telescope (or camera) toward the sky over any regional military bases and nuclear plants.
Sure, you’ll see experimental aircraft that may complicate your research, but… it’s worth a try.
I’d also take a closer look at what was going on at Roswell immediately before the UFO-related incidents of 1947.
Did alien craft have a reason to study that landscape from a very low elevation?
These are the kinds of things that go through my mind, as I consider odd news reports.
On the other hand, if it looks like a UFO and flashes lights like a UFO… it’s not always a UFO: Looks Like a Crashed UFO, But It’s Really a Solar Water Cleanup System.
Really, we have to keep a sense of humor in this.

Here’s the full press release:
Witness testimony from more than 120 former or retired military personnel points to an ongoing and alarming intervention by unidentified aerial objects at nuclear weapons sites, as recently as 2003. In some cases, several nuclear missiles simultaneously and inexplicably malfunctioned while a disc-shaped object silently hovered nearby. Six former U.S. Air Force officers and one former enlisted man will break their silence about these events at the National Press Club and urge the government to publicly confirm their reality.
One of them, ICBM launch officer Captain Robert Salas, was on duty during one missile disruption incident at Malmstrom Air Force Base and was ordered to never discuss it. Another participant, retired Col. Charles Halt, observed a disc-shaped object directing beams of light down into the RAF Bentwaters airbase in England and heard on the radio that they landed in the nuclear weapons storage area. Both men will provide stunning details about these events, and reveal how the U.S. military responded.
Captain Salas notes, “The U.S. Air Force is lying about the national security implications of unidentified aerial objects at nuclear bases and we can prove it.” Col. Halt adds, “I believe that the security services of both the United States and the United Kingdom have attempted—both then and now—to subvert the significance of what occurred at RAF Bentwaters by the use of well-practiced methods of disinformation.”
The group of witnesses and a leading researcher, who has brought them together for the first time, will discuss the national security implications of these and other alarmingly similar incidents and will urge the government to reveal all information about them. This is a public-awareness issue.
Declassified U.S. government documents, to be distributed at the event, now substantiate the reality of UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites extending back to 1948. The press conference will also address present-day concerns about the abuse of government secrecy as well as the ongoing threat of nuclear weapons.
