Editor, the Tribune: In September 2010, six former U.S. Air Force officers, ranging in rank from first lieutenant to full colonel, testified at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., regarding UFO-related observations and operational “shutdowns” of U.S. nuclear weapons sites in this country and abroad.

A few days ago, another former Air Force Minuteman nuclear missile launch officer, Capt. David Schindele, cited a 1966 UFO incursion at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., at which time he was warned by a superior officer never to speak of the incident again.

Capt. Schindele’s testimony brings to mind the statement by the late U.S. astronaut Gordon Cooper, who said of UFOs: “For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the U.S.A., our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public.”

The pressing question concerning this insidious secrecy is: Will this silence continue to be tolerated by the press, government officials and otherwise concerned citizens?
