UFO-related nuclear missile shut-downs discussed on Larry King. To my mind, this is an engaging and disturbing mystery that demands scientific follow-through.

The first half was actually useful, but when it went to Friedman, Shostak, Nye and Fox, you had more of the same old, same old, from four guys all trying to sell something. It would have been much better if they had just stuck to Salas et al, but that might have proved too taxing, not for the viewers, but for the increasingly out of touch King.

I hadn't realized this was the same episode that featured Nye and Shostak. I liked the clip I posted -- with the exception of the largely irrelevant video material.

Yes, this potential relationship between various ufo sightings (by military personnel either associated with operating or guarding such missle sites) and in close proximity to nuclear weapons launch silos and storage areas is probably the most serious possible threat extant, which obviously also makes it, despite continuous US government denials, a genuine national security issue.

There have been several incidents over time like what Salas described on the King show, and some involving, in turn, civilian nuclear power plants, both in the US and overseas.

The National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, or NICAP, under Francis Ridge and others, has reported on this extensively--see: (data on the Nuclear Connection Project) and: (for further details about these kinds of nuclear-related incidents)

As for Larry King--he's been known for some time now as a notoriously bad interviewer, and his production crew's perpetual antics in showing bogus ufo imagery in the background of the show, and between breaks, is reprehensible.

He's not a serious man, in this regard, and while some seem to think that having King cover, to whatever degree, the issues raised by the ufo phenomenon on a cable news mainstream network is helpful or useful in some manner, I find his little soirees counter-productive, and wouldn't miss them at all if they, and he, just went away from so inadequately attempting to cover the subject.

CNN/King do a bad job, and more harm than good comes from these episodes of the King show.

I agree completely. It's like George Noory with pictures.
