Cronkite saw a UFO destroy a missile
It is not often a journalist will pass on what could be the scoop of a lifetime. But apparently Walter Cronkite did just that in not reporting on his UFO experience. Yes, the most trusted man in America had a close encounter with a flying saucer.

It is a story Cronkite shared with few friends and never reported on air, despite being on assignment for CBS news when it happened in the 1950s. UFO researcher Bill Knell is one of the rare individuals to get the story first hand from the broadcast legend. Knell relates that the United States military invited Cronkite and several other journalists to a South Pacific island for a missile demonstration. They were warned that no filming or photography would be allowed.
Just as the missile launched, a flying disc appeared in the sky nearby. Knell writes,
As Air Force guards ran toward the UFO with their dogs, the disc hovered about 30 feet off of the ground. It suddenly sent out a blue beam of light which struck the missile, a guard and a dog all at the same time. The missile was frozen in mid-air about 70 feet from the launcher as it had taken off. A guard was frozen in mid-step and a dog frozen in mid-air as it had jumped at the disc. Cronkite reminded me that this all happened within the space of about five minutes or less. Suddenly, the missile exploded! After that, the disc vanished.

I had heard this and found it believable, many years ago. Cronkite was part of that the problem when he was reporting, not part of the solution, on so many fronts.

Cronkite was CIA most likely recruited by the OSS.

No, he's gone.
Before he was anchor for CBS, he was in Moscow for 2 years as a 'reporter'.

The day JFK was assassinated, it is said that Cronkite personally waited by the UPI teletype machine all morning scanning the news as it came in to the newsroom. That was not his usual place to be. Was he tipped off?

I can't link this

"Suddenly, the missile exploded! After that, the disc vanished. The guard and dog looked alright, but were quickly taken away by medical personnel always present at tests in case anyone became injured. At the same time, guards rapidly ushered the reporters into a concrete observation bunker. After about thirty minutes of sitting in that hot box, they were brought out into the air again and addressed by an Air Force Colonel.

The officer told them, "It was all part of the test." "

Re: Cronkite saw a UFO destroy a missile
It would be hard to think that Mr. Cronkite was not very aware of the fact he was an American, and that freedom comes at a price, that is well know influence exercised over the networks in pursuit of an agenda. Mr. Conkrite was given a lot of access to men in high places. He was also a guest at many political functions here and abroad, he was Mr. Conkrite. I imagine the news reports and feeds that he knows about that never went to air, but were solid reporting none the less?

I am sure he could have told stories, I hope that what he held in confidence was well placed.

By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews: 11
