>Power Failure Shuts Down Squadron Of Nuclear Missiles

>President Obama was briefed this morning on a power failure at F.E. Warren
Air Force Base in Wyoming that took 50 nuclear intercontinental ballistic
missiles (ICBMs), one->ninth of the U.S. missile stockpile, temporarily
offline on Saturday.

>The base is a main locus of the United States' strategic nuclear forces.
The 90th Missile Wing, headquartered there, controls 150 Minuteman III
intercontinental ballistic nuclear >missiles.

>They're on full-time alert and are housed in a variety of bunkers across
the base.

>On Saturday morning, according to people briefed on what happened, a
squadron of ICBMs suddenly dropped down into what's known as "LF Down"
status, meaning that the >missiles in their bunkers could no longer
communicate with the missiles themselves. LF Down status also means that
various security protocols built into the missile delivery >system, like
intrusion alarms and warhead separation alarms, were offline.

I would note that the article goes on to state that:

"According to the official, engineers believe that a launch
control center computer (LCC), responsible for a package of at
least five missiles, usually ten of them, began to "ping" out of
sequence, resulting in a surge of "noise" through the system.
The LCCs interrogate each missile in sequence, so if they begin
to send signals out when they're not supposed to, receivers on
the missiles themselves will notice this and send out error
codes."

Is there any reason to believe there is a UFO connection?  Just
curious.
