Retired Airmen Announce Alien
Visitation Over Nuclear Missile Silos



I'm sure if any of you readers, my earliest fans, know me personally then it will come as no surprise that I would cover a story like this. There is at least a 65-year-old tradition of UFO sightings, hunting and speculation in this country, since the famous Roswell, New Mexico sensation.  As to a historical, international phenomenon, the possibility exists that sightings have been reported and painted around the world for centuries or millenium. 

Recently as Monday, September 27, 2010, a press conference was held at the National Press Club in Washington, called by an avid SETI researcher and UFO-logist, Robert Hastings.  Hastings collected a group of over 120 retired Air Force pilots, captains, base commanders as well as other servicemen to testify as to their sightings, experiences and encounters of unexplained objects moving through the sky.  Hastings pitched the event as providing conclusive proof of the existence of ETs.  It must have been a slow news day in Washington as the story was covered live by CNN, ABC and CBS.

Originally I believed the hype was driven by some official government position, and that maybe President Obama would reveal that he has indeed been meeting with aliens in private as has our government for decades. But alas, that is not the case.  The story officially died and my comments will be little more than a foot note.  But I also believe that if Hastings has achieved anything it is that he has brought more credible witnesses and a larger body of observations by experienced military personel into the equation, as opposed to the thousands of civilian testimonies which have somehow always eluded the quality of absolute truth.

In fact, there was no coinciding announcement from the White House--not even a comment.  No press follow up, except ABC called the Air Force to find their official position on the matter which is also posted on the Air Force web site.

For years and two generations, pulp, and crime fiction magazines have pandered to the fans of the fantastical and science fiction, almost to the point of over-exposure.  To some extent a great bit of stigma has been assigned to alleged witnesses.  There is a special crack-pot mentality reserved for those who believe they have been abducted by aliens.

I have observed some bloggers musings that the new testimonies about UFO's is a boring non-story lacking the solid evidence: such as producing an actual ET or the alien artifact of an extra-terrestrial being.  I also assume the fact that actual earth-born technology can be so sophisticated at times, coupled with the amazing CGI effects produced by the film and television industry that a majority of people's imagination is deadened.  Everyone, in the press perhaps, is a skeptic from Missouri, the Show Me state.
