WASHINGTON, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Robert Hastings:
In an interview with ABC News/Yahoo! News last Friday, former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) said statements by U.S. Air Force nuclear missile launch officers—regarding mysterious aerial objects interfering with the functionality of American ICBMs—make clear that top government officials are lying to the public when they claim to have no knowledge of national security-related UFO incidents.
Gravel first gained national recognition in 1971, by placing the still-classified Pentagon Papers—which documented U.S. government malfeasance during the Vietnam War—into the public record.
Gravel said the revelations by former/retired Captains Robert Salas, Bruce Fenstermacher, and David Schindele, as well as retired Security Policeman Sgt. David Scott, are "the smoking gun of the whole issue" of government secrecy on UFOs.

On September 27, 2010, Captain Salas co-hosted the "UFOs and Nukes" press conference with noted researcher Robert Hastings, during which seven USAF veterans revealed ongoing UFO activity at U.S. nuclear weapons sites during the Cold War era. That media event was extensively and favorably covered by hundreds of news organizations worldwide, including CNN, which streamed the proceedings live.
The full-length video of the press conference appears at http://www.ufohastings.com/.
The latest testimony—about UFOs knocking ICBMs offline—was heard by Senator Gravel and five other former members of congress at the "Citizen Hearing on Disclosure" organized by Stephen Bassett at the National Press Club last week.
Hastings decided not to participate in that event, saying, "It's unfortunate that Bassett chose to mingle the highly credible testimony of the missile launch officers, and the missile security guard, with questionable claims made by some of the other witnesses at the hearing. That is counter-productive if one is attempting to educate the public about the UFO reality and undercuts the legitimacy of the Disclosure process that he supposedly wants to bring about."
Hastings has interviewed over 140 U.S. military veterans regarding their involvement in nukes-related UFO incidents over the years. His summary of their tape recorded accounts may be found in UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, which is available at his website, www.ufohastings.com, for $23.95. (Scalpers resell it at Amazon for $85 and up.)
"An advanced, outside third party has been tampering with American and Russian nukes," Hastings says.
