The Momentum Question
by Billy Cox

With the sort of hyperbole that characterized much of
his political career, former U.S. Sen. 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

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."
