But let us return to the issue of electromagnetic pulses, or EMPs. In recent years, many of us have heard of the dangers posed by strong electromagnetic outbursts from the Sun. They can disrupt satellite, television and radio transmissions, and wreak other electronic havoc as well. We have also heard how a foreign enemy might possibly explode a nuclear device high in the atmosphere before a potential invasion. Such an explosion might leave people and buildings intact, but the electromagnetic pulse created by such a powerful explosion would literally fry the innards of all electronic equipment; which, of course, would render it totally useless.

While it may seem a bit silly, I am reminded of scenes from movies like "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", and the 2005 version of "War of the Worlds", where we see vehicles completely stalled due to the presence of an alien force. As some of you may know, it's been theorized that UFOs derive their operating power from the manipulation of gravity and electromagnetic waves. Either that, or the generation of an electromagnetic pulse may possibly be a by-product of their manipulation of gravity. The technology is too profound for me to personally understand. I've read a number of accounts where witnesses claim that UFOs are surrounded by a strong electromagnetic field, similar to static electricity. It may be this field that causes them to glow at night or while in flight. The strength of the field may determine the color of the glow.

As I've already stated, according to the military historical record that I read, military officials quickly learned of the dangers posed by EMPs from the Malmstrom AFB UFO incident. They are greatly concerned about it; and have spent literally billions of dollars to try to rectify it. If we consider how much the modern military relies upon electronics, it is easy to understand how such a powerful EMP attack could greatly incapacitate a nation's fighting capabilities.

But in light of the information I have uncovered, I've begun to wonder if the military's real concern is a foreign power exploding a nuclear device over a major city, or if it might be something else. In other words, is their concern simply a powerful invader from across the ocean, or might it possibly be some foreign alien power from across the Universe? A bit later in this series, I will be sharing with you some rather interesting statements made by President Reagan, concerning UFOs, during the 1980s.

Before leaving behind the Malmstrom AFB UFO incident, allow me to inform you that the 1967 UFO incursion wasn't the only time that Malmstrom AFB was visited by UFOs. A news article that was published in The Washington Post in January of 1979 reveals that in late October and early November of 1975, this very same SAC base, as well as Loring Air Force Base in the state of Maine, Wurtsmith AFB in the state of Michigan, and other SAC bases located in the northern tier of U.S. states, were all visited by UFOs. Similar to the 1967 Malmstrom AFB incident, military jets were out-paced by the evasive crafts. The Washington Post article stated in part:

----- Begin Quote -----

"The Air Force and NORAD data provided detailed accounts of sightings of unexplained objects from Loring Air Force Base in Maine, Wurtsmith AFB in Michigan and Malmstrom AFB in Montana, all within a two-week period.

At those and other missile-launching sites in the northern tier of states, military personnel reported that the objects hovered over nuclear weapons storage areas, in some cases as low as 10 feet from the ground, and over missile silos before they departed."

----- End Quote -----

In this particular incident, the Kilo-Flight LCC, located to the south of Lewiston, Montana, was targeted by a UFO on the seventh of November, 1975. As you will recall, each LCC, or Launch Control Center, is surrounded by ten LFs, or Launch Facilities, each of which houses one Minuteman missile. In this case, it was the K-7 LF which set off an alarm at the Kilo-Flight LCC. Following is an extract from Greenwood and Fawcett's 1984 book "Clear Intent : The Government Coverup of the UFO Experience", which describes the amazing events which transpired that day. Please notice that, as with the March 1967 Malmstrom AFB events, the UFO that visited K-7 is described as having an orange glow:

----- Begin Quote -----

"On November 7, remote electronic sensors triggered an alarm indicating that something was violating site security. Underground, in the launch control area, two officers noted the signal, but there was no television surveillance topside. The normal procedure for detecting what had violated security was to call for a missile security helicopter to check the area. At the same time, Sabotage Alert Teams (SAT), consisting of four to six men, were also alerted to the fact that a violation was taking place and were ordered to proceed to the site. On this occasion, an SAT team drove down the highway and onto a dirt road which led to the K-7 area. About a mile away, the team could see an orange, glowing object over the area. As they closed to within half a mile, they could now see that the object was tremendous in size. They radioed to the Launch Control Facility that, from their location, they were viewing a brightly glowing, orange, football field-sized disc that illuminated the missile site. The SAT team was ordered by the launch control people to proceed into the K-7 site. However, they responded that they refused to go any farther, clearly fearful of the intimidating appearance of the object. It began to rise, and at about 1,000 feet, NORAD picked up the UFO on radar. Two F-106 jet interceptors were launched from Great Falls, Montana, and headed toward the K-7 area. The UFO continued to rise. At about 200,000 feet, it disappeared from NORAD's radar. The F-106's were never able to get a visual sighting of the UFO.

All members of the SAT team were directed to the base hospital, where they were psychologically tested. It was determined that no one could identify the object that was seen, but that the members of the SAT team obviously had been through a traumatic experience. Meanwhile, targeting teams, along with computer specialists, were brought to the missile site to check out the missile, and specifically, the computer in the warhead that targets the missile. Amazingly, when the computer was checked, they found that the tape had mysteriously changed target numbers! The re-entry vehicle was then taken from the silo and brought back to the base. Eventually the entire missile was changed."

Having shared that interesting UFO encounter with you, let's examine another UFO story which may shed additional light on the important issue of why a UFO might decide to knock out nuclear-tipped missiles.

Professor Robert Jacobs, a former U.S. Air Force Lieutenant, also shared his UFO experience with The Disclosure Project. In this particular case, Jacobs describes a UFO event which occurred high in the Earth's atmosphere, in Big Sur, Calif., on September 15, 1964. At that time, Lieutenant Jacobs was the Officer-in-Charge of Photo-Optical Instrumentation for the 1369th Photographic Squadron at Vandenberg AFB. Part of Jacobs' job was to make photographic records of Atlas missile tests. It was during the filming of just such a test on that September day, that, according to Lt. Jacobs, something very unusual appeared in the sky, and was captured on film. The following day, Jacobs was called into the office of Major Mansmann, his commanding officer, where he was explicitly told that the event had never occurred, and to forget about it.

But, Jacobs could not just forget about it; and apparently, Major Mansmann couldn't either. Prior to his death, and some forty years after the event had actually occurred, contrary to the U.S. Government's claims, Major Mansmann confirmed in writing that there was a UFO incident on September 15, 1964. Mansmann even went so far as to describe the object as being "saucer-shaped". So exactly what happened during that Atlas F missile launch? According to Robert Jacobs, a UFO appeared, and emitted several beams of brilliant light at the missile from different angles. This resulted in a malfunction of the missile's dummy warhead. The missile subsequently fell into the Pacific Ocean, unable to reach its designated target. In his interview with The Disclosure Project, Jacobs stated:

----- Begin Quote -----

"So this thing [UFO] fires a beam of light at the warhead, hits it, and then it moves to the other side and fires another beam of light, and then moves again and fires another beam, and another. And the warhead tumbles out of space. What message would I interpret from this? Don't mess with nuclear warheads . . . After an article [about the UFO incident], I would get telephone calls all night long. People would call and start screaming at me. One night somebody blew up my mailbox."

----- End Quote -----

Similar to the Malmstrom AFB UFO events we just examined, the Big Sur UFO event, if it is true, seems to likewise send the message that the occupants of UFOs, whoever they are, don't like the people of Earth creating nuclear weapons; and they are determined to stop us from doing so; even by force if necessary.

As with other UFO incidents we've been discussing, there is controversy surrounding the Big Sur UFO event. A number of UFO skeptics have suggested that the photographic equipment that was available over forty years ago, was not capable of producing the kind of results described by Jacobs. This is because the UFO incident occurred about sixty miles above the Earth, and Jacob's photographic team was located at Big Sur, or about one hundred and twenty miles to the northwest of Vandenberg AFB -- the launch site -- in order to be able to film a side view of the launch. Professor Jacobs refutes the arguments of the skeptics; and in an analysis he published in the January 1989 edition of the MUFON UFO Journal, called "Deliberate Deception: The Big Sur UFO Filming", he explains why it was indeed possible to make a film of the alleged UFO. If you would like to read this rather detailed commentary, you may still be able to find it at nicap.org/bigsur2.htm. Following is Professor Jacobs' own description of the UFO encounter, taken from his MUFON analysis:

----- Begin Quote -----

"At that point the most remarkable vision of my life came on the screen. Another object flew into the frame from left to right. It approached the warhead package and maneuvered around it. That is, this . . . "thing" . . . flew a relative polar orbit around our warhead package which was itself heading toward the South Pacific at some 18 thousand miles an hour!

As the new object circumnavigated our hardware, it emitted four distinct bright flashes of light at approximately the 4 cardinal compass points of its orbit. These flashes were so intense that each "strike" caused the I.O. tube to "boom" or form a halo around the spot. Following this remarkable aerial display, the object departed the frame in the same direction from which it had come. The shape of the object was that of a classic "flying saucer." In the middle of the top half of the object was a dome. From that dome, or just beneath it, seemed to issue a beam of light which caused the flashes described.

Subsequently, the warhead malfunctioned and tumbled out of suborbit, hundreds of miles short of its target. This . . . unidentified flying . . . "thing" had apparently "shot down" an American dummy atomic warhead!"

----- End Quote -----

So once again we ask the same question: Was the UFO tale just a cover-up story that was used by the military to protect a top secret government Atlas missile experiment; or was there really a UFO involved in the launch, and the U.S. Government is just following its normal modus operandi, by denying it? For his part, Professor Jacobs is convinced that what they captured on film that day, was a real UFO, piloted by alien beings from another world. As we saw earlier, Jacobs remains convinced that these extraterrestrial beings are trying to send a clear message to us, that we should not be tampering with nuclear weapons. In summarizing his conclusions, Prof. Jacobs states in the same analysis:

----- Begin Quote -----

(1) What we photographed that September day in 1964 was a solid, three-dimensional, intelligently controlled flying device.

(2) It emitted a beam of energy, possibly a plasma beam, at our dummy warhead and caused a malfunction.

(3) This "craft" was not anything of which our science and technology in 1964 was capable. The most probable explanation of the device, therefore, is that it was of extraterrestrial origin.

(4) The flashing strikes of light we recorded on film were not from laser tracking devices. Such devices did not exist then, aside from small scale, laboratory models.

(5) Most probably, the B.U. Telescope was brought out to California specifically to photograph this event which had been prearranged. That is, we had been setup to record an event which someone in our Government knew was going to happen in advance.

(6) What we photographed that day was the first terrestrial demonstration of what has come to be called S.D.I. or "Star Wars." The demonstration was put on for our benefit for some reason by extraterrestrials. It is this aspect of the event, not merely the recording of another "flying Saucer", which caused such consternation both on the part of Major Mansmann when he told me "it never happened", and on behalf of the government in its two and one half decade coverup of the event and the record we made of it.

----- End Quote -----

What adds to the Big Sur UFO debate, is the fact that both Mansmann and Jacobs insist that on the day that Jacobs was called into his office to view the film, two or three agents from the CIA were present as well. After Jacobs was warned to keep quiet regarding the UFO incident, the CIA agents, along with the film, disappeared, and the film has not been seen again. Furthermore, all inquiries via FOIA requests, to Vandenberg Air Force Base, regarding the September 15, 1964 UFO event, have resulted in the base insisting that no Atlas F missile tests were conducted on that particular day. In fact, Vandenberg AFB officials have stated that they are not even in possession of any records concerning the alleged UFO incident.

Let us now turn our attention to Ross Dedrickson, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel, who during the 1950s, worked with the Atomic Energy Commission. As Colonel Dedrickson shared in his testimony to The Disclosure Project, his very first encounter with UFOs occurred during the famous Washington, D.C. fly-over in July of 1952. Part of Col. Dedrickson's job responsibilities at that time included maintaining the AEC's inventory of its nuclear weapons stockpile. This included accompanying the security teams as they visited the various nuclear installations, in order to verify the security of said weapons. In his testimony, Colonel Dedrickson stated in part:

----- Begin Quote -----

" . . . we were getting reports of visits by UFOs over the storage facilities, and even some of the manufacturing facilities; and that went on continuously . . . through the entire 50's . . . During this period of time, I also learned of a number of incidents which happened involving UFOs . . . I also learned about incidents involving nuclear weapons; and among these incidents were those where a couple of nuclear weapons that were sent into space, were destroyed by the extraterrestrials . . . [Over-flights of nuclear facilities] were taken so seriously that the observers would often not report them, because it involved so much bureaucracy and protocol . . . They deliberately would not report them. On most of those cases where the UFOs became identified, at least on a radar or with reports, why, they would try to scramble aircraft to intercept them. It was a very aggressive, you might say, response from our own government . . . There was one incident when we exploded a nuclear weapon over the Pacific, and this was in about '61, I believe. The consternation that it caused [from the ETs] was because it shut out communications over the Pacific basin for a number of hours, in which no radio transmission was available at any time . . . This was one that the extraterrestrials were really concerned about, because it affected our ionosphere. In fact, the ET spacecraft were unable to operate because of the pollution in the magnetic field which they depended upon . . . In either the very end of the 70's or the early 80's . . . we attempted to put a nuclear weapon on the Moon, and explode it for scientific measurements and other things, which was not acceptable to the extraterrestrials . . . The ETs destroyed the weapon as it went toward the Moon. The idea of any explosion of a nuclear weapon in space by any Earth government was not acceptable to the extraterrestrials, and that has been demonstrated over and over . . . Later, on our visits to Los Alamos and Livermore, we found that people were interested in the extraterrestrial technology, very much so . . . That was the time when Area 51 became notorious."

So what are we to make of all of these UFO testimonies by U.S. military officials? Are the similarities between their stories merely coincidence? Are they just liars or attention seekers? Are they just performing their "patriotic duty" by inventing stories in order to conceal the U.S. Government's military secrets? Or is it possible that they are telling us the truth, in spite of known risks to themselves and their families? What do you think?

If you would like to learn more about the work and mission of The Disclosure Project, I encourage you to visit their website at disclosureproject.org. Study their material, and then make your own determinations regarding whether or not they are telling the truth.

While today, the American Government publicly denies the existence of UFOs, or more specifically, extraterrestrial crafts which originate from alien worlds, as you can clearly see by the various examples I have provided throughout this series, only a few decades ago, the mindset was considerably different. Some government and military officials were more open-minded, and were willing to consider this possibility. Some people even embraced it as fact. The impression I have received, is that to this day, the battle continues within the government, between those who are for full disclosure, and those who are not. Furthermore, I suspect that despite its outward denial, the U.S. Government still remains very much interested in the UFO phenomenon. If this were not the case, it would not have initiated so many programs in order to investigate the matter.

Across the ocean, in Europe, in the past, as well as in our present day, there have likewise been certain individuals in high places who have become convinced that some UFOs are in fact spacecrafts which originate from other worlds. They too question what this means for Planet Earth. One example is Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding -- also known as Sir Hugh Dowding -- who was the Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Air Force Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. This battle occurred during the early part of World War II, from July to October of 1940, when the Germans fought to gain air superiority over the Royal Air Force. In the July 11, 1954 edition of the Sunday Dispatch in London, Lord Dowding is quoted as having stated the following regarding the many UFOs which have been observed:

----- Begin Quote -----

"More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any scientific explanation. I am convinced that these objects do exist, and that they are not manufactured by any nation on Earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from some extraterrestrial source."

----- End Quote -----

In August of that same year, upon being asked about the reality of UFOs, and their origin from beyond the Earth, Lord Dowding also stated:

----- Begin Quote -----

"Of course flying saucers are real, and they are interplanetary."

----- End Quote -----

Another prominent British citizen who both spoke about, and wrote about UFOs, was Peter John Hill-Norton, also known as Baron Hill-Norton, and Lord Hill-Norton. Following military service during World War II, Lord Hill-Norton swiftly rose through the ranks. By the early 1970s, he had become Chief of the Defence Staff of the United Kingdom. In 1974, he also became the chairman of the NATO Military Committee; a post which he held until his retirement in 1977. It was during his later years, when he served as a "cross-bencher" in the British House of Lords, that Lord Hill-Norton became vocal within Parliament regarding his views concerning UFOs. In 1988, author Timothy Good published a book entitled "Above Top Secret". In the foreword to that book, Lord Hill-Norton wrote the following:

----- Begin Quote -----

"The evidence that there are objects which have been seen in our atmosphere, and even on terra firma, that cannot be accounted for either as man-made objects, or as any physical force or effect known to our scientists, seems to me to be overwhelming."

"A very large number of sightings have been vouched for by persons whose credentials seem to me unimpeachable. It is striking that so many have been trained observers, such as police officers and airline or military pilots. Their observations have in many instances been supported either by technical means, such as radar or, even more convincingly, by interference with electrical apparatus of one sort or another."

----- End Quote -----

Some of you who are involved with UFOlogy will undoubtedly recall the strange events which occurred in the skies over Belgium in March of 1990. Commonly referred to by UFOlogists as the "Belgian Wave" or "Belgian Flap", this event involved mass sightings of triangular-shaped crafts of unknown origin. The low-level, huge, silent objects were observed by local townspeople, police officials, and Belgian Air Force radar operators. In fact, Belgian Air Force fighter pilots made various attempts to pursue the strange crafts, but were not successful; because each time that the pilots would draw close, the unusual objects would accelerate at a high rate of speed.

The Belgian Air Force eventually released video footage of the event, as had been recorded by their radar operators. In their official report, the Royal Belgian Air Force concluded that they were "unable to identify either the nature or the origin of the phenomena". In 1991, SOBEPS -- Belgian Society For Space Phenomenon Study -- included the following comments in their report, attributed to Major-General Wilfred de Brouwer, who was the Deputy Chief of the Royal Belgian Air Force:

----- Begin Quote -----

"In any case, the Air Force has arrived to the conclusion that a certain number of anomalous phenomena has been produced within Belgian airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations compiled in this [SOBEPS] book, reinforced by the reports of the night of March 30-31 [1990], have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorized aerial activities have taken place. Until now, not a single trace of aggressiveness has been signaled; military or civilian air traffic has not been perturbed nor threatened. We can therefore advance that the presumed activities do not constitute a direct menace. The day will come undoubtedly when the phenomenon will be observed with technological means of detection and collection that won't leave a single doubt about its origin. This should lift a part of the veil that has covered the mystery for a long time. A mystery that continues to the present. But it exists, it is real, and that in itself is an important conclusion."

----- End Quote -----

The "Belgian Flap" isn't the only UFO-related incident which has involved triangular-shaped craft. According to my online research, such sightings can be traced back to the 1940's. However, in recent decades, some of the more "famous" events include the Rendlesham Forest UFO event of December 27, 1980, which we'll be discussing more later on in this series, the so-called "Phoenix Lights" of March 13, 1997, the Moscow UFO wave of March 12, 1990, and the Illinois UFO sightings of January 5, 2000, which was featured on American television several times. If you wish to learn more about these events, I encourage you to conduct your own research on the Internet.

Belief in the extraterrestrial nature of some UFOs is also shared by certain individuals within the French government as well. In an interview conducted by Jean-Claude Bourret on February 21, 1974, Robert Galley, who in December of 1980 became France's Minister of Defense, had this to say to his radio listeners regarding UFO flaps in France:

----- Begin Quote -----

"I must say that if listeners could see for themselves the mass of reports coming in from the airborne gendarmerie, from the mobile gendarmerie, and from the gendarmerie charged with the job of conducting investigations, all of which reports are forwarded by us to the National Center for Space Studies, then they would see that it is all pretty disturbing. I believe that the attitude of spirit that we must vis-à-vis this phenomenon is an open one, that is to say that it doesn't consist in denying a priori, as our ancestors of previous centuries did deny many things that seem nowadays perfectly elementary."

----- End Quote -----

Another comment comes from Dr. Claude Poher. Poher, who holds a Ph.D. in astronomy, was the founder, and the first director of GEPAN, which was a government initiated project developed by the National Center for Space Studies -- or CNES -- which, similar to NASA, is the national space agency of France. The primary goal of GEPAN was to assist French officials, both civilian and military, in understanding the true nature of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena, or PAN. In 1988, about ten years after its founding, GEPAN was renamed SEPRA; that is, the Rare Aerospace Phenomena Study Department. Today, SEPRA is known as GEIPAN, or "Groupe d'Études et d'Informations sur les Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non identifiés". It is now headed by Yves Sillard, who is also a former director of CNES.

In a June 1978 GEPAN report to the Scientific Committee, Dr. Poher wrote the following interesting assessment, in which he acknowledges the reality of UFOs, and also admits that the origin of said craft, and the technology behind them, was unknown to French officials at the time:

----- Begin Quote -----

"Taking into account the facts that we have gathered from the observers and from the location of their observations, we concluded that there generally can be said to be a material phenomenon behind the observations. In 60% of the cases reported here, the description of this phenomenon is apparently one of a flying machine whose origin, modes of lifting and/or propulsion are totally outside our knowledge."

----- End Quote -----

Similar to UFO occurrences in the United States, interest in UFOs in France did not begin in 1977 with the formation of GEPAN. Two decades earlier, in 1958, Aime Michel published a book entitled "Flying Saucers and the Straight-Line Mystery". In the forward to that book, General Lionel M. Chassin, who was the Commanding General of the French Air Forces, as well as the General Air Defence Coordinator of the Allied Air Forces of NATO, wrote the following:

----- Begin Quote -----

"The number of thoughtful, intelligent, educated people in full possession of their faculties who have 'seen something' and described it, grows every day . . . We can . . . say categorically that mysterious objects have indeed appeared and continue to appear in the sky that surrounds us."
