Présentation de l'éditeur
In four separate Gallup polls in the years between 1966 and 1987, an average of 52% of Americans believe the UFO phenomenon is real. Unidentified explores this phenomenon with the available evidence covering a sixty-year period. The author, Robert Salas writes about his own experience involving the disabling of nuclear missiles under his control, during a UFO encounter. Another, similar incident occurred within a week. The U.S. Air Force denied the involvement of UFOs in these incidents. Salas presents evidence that this denial and cover-up resulted in withholding evidence from the Air Force funded, Condon investigation into the UFO phenomenon. The intentional “white-wash” of the evidence resulted in the current Air Force policy of public denial, dismissal and lies about the UFO phenomenon. Unidentified reveals previously unreported UFO incidents through witnesses who are disclosing their stories publicly for the first time. These stories are also UFO incidents involving U.S. nuclear weapons bases. The combined related incidents clearly indicate a pattern of interest by UFOs with our nuclear weapons. The response of the U.S. Government to this phenomenon has been extreme secrecy, dis-information and ridicule. Unidentified shines a new light on the extremes of government in dealing with this phenomenon. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
