Former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel believes statements from Air Force officers are proof of a UFO coverup.
During an interview Gravel stated that he believed the testimonies of U.S. Air Force nuclear missile launch officers concerning unidentified objects interfering with the operation of American ICBMs represented conclusive evidence that government officials are lying when they claim to have no knowledge of UFO incidents that represent a risk to national security.
Gravel cited the testimonies of Captains Robert Salas, Bruce Fenstermacher, and David Schindele as a veritable 'smoking gun' that proves government secrecy on the subject. "It goes right to the White House, and of course, once the White House takes a position, ‘well there's nothing going on’...it just goes down the chain of command, everyone stands toe," he said.
"Gravel first gained national recognition in 1971, by placing the still-classified Pentagon Papers - which documented US government malfeasance during the Vietnam War - into the public record."
