Mike Gravel told ABC/Yahoo News that the testimony of Air Force veterans reporting UFO activity over American nuclear bases was "the smoking gun" of last week's Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. A smoking gun, of course, requires a bit more documentation than the summary evidence delivered in Washington (although there's plenty of other data, too detailed for a brief oral presentation). Nevertheless, the 82-year-old former Democratic/Libertarian presidential candidate certainly identified the most dangerously ignored aspect of UFO behavior, i.e., a purported ability to override American missile command systems. Front and center of the nuke controversy was retired Air Force captain Robert Salas, who for nearly 20 years - against strong cultural currents of indifference and ridicule - has relentlessly attempted to steer the debate into the mainstream. In fact, Salas shared his first-hand account of a 1967 Minuteman missile shutdown at Malmstrom AFB at the exact same National Press Club venue in 2010; yet, as Gravel and five other former Capitol Hill colleagues made clear, last week was the first they'd ever heard of the incidents, which have produced an anecdotal legacy of recurring patterns. Salas has been a critic of Citizen Hearing organizer Steve Bassett and initially declined an invitation to participate. Yet, the potential for bringing his story to larger audiences proved impossible to resist, and to maximize the impact, Salas convinced two other USAF veterans, former Tech. Sgt. David Scott and Capt. David Schindele to submit their own testimony to the panelists. Salas' reservations about attending were at least partially borne out, especially after watching disclosure advocate Steven Greer's documentary Sirius. "That turned out to be a big bust. I've got a master's degree in engineering and I couldn't understand what Greer and (Dr. Tom) Valone were trying to say about how UFOs needed an inertial shield to make those 90-degree turns," Salas said. "It sounded like a lot of malarkey." [More at site... ] Listen to 'Strange Days...
