Just >curious. Hi, Steve & List, No, there is, as yet, no indication of a UFO connection of any kind being reported by the press. I read the article in the Atlantic also, and a few other online media reports, and it is intriguing, however, to note that initial reports said the possible cause of the problem ranged from an underground power cable being snagged by possible excavation on base, to a hardware problem of some unidentified kind, to now, in the latest reports, to some kind of unidentified "computer problem", where some kind of electronic interference was somehow injected into the comm lines of these missile sites for a little while. I have a feeling, due to the national security issues, that the actual source or cause of the failure of these 50 missiles, for about 45 minutes, will not be disclosed anytime soon. But isn't it interesting that not just one, but several _groups_ of missiles all suddenly were not able to be communicated with for that period of time before somehow returning to normal? One would think that the separate missile groups at F.E. Warren AFB, and the other launch sites at two other AFB locations (we have a total of about 450 inidividual missile sites within the US, some of which have multiple warheads, or are MIRV'ed), would have at least triply redundant, independent power supplies, and various back-up power systems at each site, or UPS systems, and that all 50 missiles would not be able to all go down at once. How could or does that happen? Why did it last nearly an hour? How and why did they all come back up after this interim failure? I would guess it's pretty natural to think there might be some possible EM or EMP effect that could have knocked all these missiles off-line around the same time, since the recent press conference by Hastings and Salas regarding the potential or real connection in past years between UFOs and nukes being similarly, temporarily affected in completely unexpected ways was most recently in the news, but this is still rather strange. It would be interesting to find out if Hastings, Salas, or others get any reports from Warren AFB about any recent UFO incidents or sightings on or near Warren, at which time then maybe there will be something more to consider about any possible linkage. Until then, it remains yet another "missile mystery," which is disturbing enough, regardless of cause, since one would think that power sources, comm lines, and computer systems would not be designed or operated to allow any such massive if temporary outage on our nuclear missile systems.
