Watching the Sci-Fi's UFO marathon today sparked my interest in the story of Malmstrom Air Force Base and the subsequent shutdown of ICBM missile
operations. Up to 10 missiles were "shutdown" by the appearance of a UFO directly over the site. There were numerous reports of UFO activity in the
area prior to this event.
An investigation followed with no clear conclusions as to why this happened. The military denial machine went quickly into action to state "the Air
Force has maintained that no reported UFO incident has ever affected national security."
A declassified Strategic Air Command memo outlined in its investigation that "the fact that no apparent reason for the loss of ten missiles can be
readily identified is cause for grave concern to this headquarters".
My own personal conclusions are that even though the technology was late 60's I find it hard to believe that this failure could have been attributed
to electrical problems or the like. While I am not a qualified missile silo technician I would think that these systems would have multiple backup
power and operational features and independant at that. These systems are most likely designed to be individually capable and operable under a variety
of potential problems and unlikely scenarios.
Is it possible that UFO's/aliens have the ability to intervene should we decide to invoke a nuclear attack. Not a bad thought really given the
current levels of nuclear proliferation and the morons 'behind the button'.
Maybe the day that the greys appear will be the day we are on the verge on armageddon.
