Among the countless UFO sightings worldwide (according to Dr. Jacques Vallée, the DIA has a database of 200,000 cases), there is one category that inspires more urgency than the others: sightings of unidentified flying objects near nuclear facilities. The case of Malmstrom, a US Air Force base, is one of the most emblematic incidents.

The famous case, detailed here, can be summed up as follows: in March 1967, while working as a launch officer for nuclear-armed ballistic missiles in the base's basement, Captain Robert Salas was alerted by a guard on the surface to the presence of an unidentified flying object. Immediately, the missiles inexplicably fail.

While Captain Salas has been traveling the world to publicize this incident for nearly thirty years, the Pentagon has yet to provide any details about these half-century-old events. Wisconsin Representative Mike Gallagher did try to sound out Pentagon officials at a public Senate hearing in 2022... To no avail, even though one of them promised he would look into the matter. Two years of silence followed, at least in the public sphere - until today.

Responding to a question from Sentinel News on March 4, Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough said of Representative Gallagher's request regarding the Malmstrom case:

“I can confirm that the department responded to Rep. Gallagher.”

Ms. Gough would not comment on the content or date of the response to the Wisconsin representative. We have contacted Mike Gallagher's team to find out more, and will keep our readers informed of any new information obtained. 

Good luck with that.
