Over the past half-century, UFO activity at various nuclear weapons sites has been reported by hundreds of former U.S. military personnel and noted in hundreds of now-declassified documents. Although the incident described below did not involve a UFO sighting, per se, a number of the elements mentioned by the witness—including the disruption of vehicle engines and radio communications—are identical to those found in many other UFO-related incidents.

The author of the following article, Joseph Pscolka, is a former U.S. Air Force Security Policeman who guarded Minuteman nuclear missile sites located outside of Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, in the late 1980s. In early August 2013, Pscolka learned of my four decades-long investigation of nukes-related UFO incidents and quickly contacted me, saying that he had witnessed two strange occurrences while stationed at Malmstrom.

Ten UFOs Cavort Above Nuclear Missiles at Malmstrom AFB

Air Force Witnesses Quickly Silenced

Since 1973, I have interviewed more than 140 U.S. military veterans regarding their knowledge of incidents involving UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites. Seven of those individuals participated in my September 27, 2010 “UFOs and Nukes” press conference, in Washington D.C., which CNN streamed live. The full-length video may be viewed at my website’s homepage.

The latest interview, with former U.S. Air Force Security Policeman Joseph C. Pscolka, Jr., occurred earlier this week.

The U.S. Intelligence Community Monitors UFO Researchers' Activities

First Recommended by the CIA in 1953, the Practice Continues Today

In 1973, when I began interviewing former/retired U.S. military personnel regarding their UFO experiences at nuclear weapons facilities, I didn't give much thought to the possibility that the intelligence community would take an interest in my activities.

At that point, the CIA's "Robertson Panel" Report—which recommended surveillance of American UFO-research advocacy groups—was still classified. Indeed, as far as the public knew, the only component of the U.S. government responsible for UFO-related matters was the Air Force.

However, that myth slowly faded away as classified documents began to be pried loose for public inspection via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). By the early-1980s, the involvement of the FBI, the CIA, and the NSA in the collection of UFO-related data had been firmly established.

Has the British Ministry of Defence Released All of Its UFO Files?

Robert Hastings says “No!” and Nick Pope Agrees

A new BBC online article, dated June 20, 2013 and titled “UFO sightings: Files explain why MoD closed down special desk”, discusses what I consider to be a calculated decision by the British government to feign a lack of interest in the UFO phenomenon, even as public sighting reports in the UK reached a very high level. At the conclusion of this article, former MoD UFO specialist Nick Pope comments on my assessment.
