Within seconds, the entire flight of ten ICBMs was down! All of their missiles reported a "No-Go" condition. One by one across the board, each missile had became inoperable. When the checklist procedure had been completed for each missile site, it was discovered that each of the missiles had gone off alert status due to a Guidance and Control (G&C) System fault. Power had not been lost to the sites; the missiles simply were not operational because, for some unexplainable reason, each of their guidance and control systems had malfunctioned.
One conclusion was that the only way a pulse or noise could be sent in from outside the shielded system was through an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from an unknown source. The technology of the day made generating an EMP of sufficient magnitude to enter the shielded system a very difficult proposition, requiring large, heavy, bulky equipment. The source of the actual pulse that caused the missile shutdowns remains a mystery to this day.
And yet, there are only records of one of the incidents.
..there were, in fact, two "shut down" incidents that occurred at missile sights in 1967. One occurred at the "Echo Flight" launch facility on March 16, 1967 and the other occurred at the "Oscar Flight" facility on March 24, 1967.
According to whom? Salas didn't seem too sure about that.
...there were 20 ICBM's that were "shut down" within a span of 8 days, in March of 1967.
There was a minor discrepancy. Salas said all the missiles had gone off line but his boss, Meiwald said only four or five. In the original information, Salas, according to what he said to me, “Split the different and I said eight.” He now has said all ten were involved.
Does the "alien abduction" account that he relates above provide further evidence for the psychological angle and the conclusion that Salas, whilst honest, is confused. Or does it indicate that Salas is doubling down on his original story by expanding the lie and looking for a new angle to gin up the audience (a pattern that could be seen with many of the Contactees in the 1950s, for example, or Billy Meier). If I had to choose between the two, Occam's Razor tells me that even though my default position is to believe the best about people, Carlson et al are correct, and Salas is just another genial huckster in a long line of hucksters who present ever-changing stories.

I don't exactly know what to make about this case but I've seen a very large pulsating red ufo. I don't know what to make of that either but it was spectacular. 1974, not too far from Redstone Arsenal and the Space & Rocket Center in the foothills of the Appalachians.

Yes, Robert Salas is a fraud beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Google James Carlson and see what you find.
