Walter Cronkite saw UFO destroy a U.S. missile - w/video
excerpt from linked Ph.D.-authored article:

In 1973, Walter Cronkite was working on a CBS story involving UFOs. He interviewed leading UFO researchers to find material and stories about incidents for the special. The most remarkable story however was apparently not covered. According to a UFO researcher, that is Cronkite’s own UFO experience during the 1950s when covering a U.S. missile launch in the Pacific.

Bill Knell in 1973 was only beginning his career in UFO research. He claims that during his interview by Cronkite for the CBS special, Cronkite shared his own UFO experience. Knell explained that Cronkite and the other reporters covering the missile test were not allowed to take photos or audio. Reporters could only write about the test. There would be no photographic or audio record of the surprising event that would happen. Knell writes:
As Air Force Security personnel walked around the perimeter of the test area with guard dogs and the news reporters watched, the missile was fired-up and about to be released. Just then, a large disc-type UFO appeared on the scene.

Cronkite guessed that the object was about 50-60 feet in diameter, a dull grey color and had no visible means of propulsion. Because the noise of activity around him and the missile engine was so loud, he couldn't tell whether the disc made any noise. He did not notice any coming directly from the object.

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. 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.

About thirty minutes after the incident an Air Force Colonel debriefed Cronkite and the other reporters. Knell continues:
The officer told them, "It was all part of the test." Obviously making it up as he went along, the Colonel said that the event was "staged" to test media reaction to UFOs. He reinforced the usual line to the reporters that Flying Saucers were probably not extra-terrestrial, but what people were actually seeing was secret planes being tested by the Air Force. This test was designed to show the media how "shocking" it could be to suddenly view a new technology. Well, Cronkite was certain that what he viewed was a new technology, but he was also sure it was not an Earthly one! He didn't believe the Air Force explanation then, and he still didn't believe it at the time when he told me the story.

Cronkite’s alleged experience was not the only time a UFO had been witnessed destroying or disabling a missile. In 1964, Professor Robert Jacobs served as a Lieutenant with the U.S. Air Force and was stationed at Vandenberg Air Force base. He was responsible for filming the test of an Atlas missile. He captured on film the following incident:
"...we were testing ballistic missiles that were to deliver nuclear weapons on target...my duty [was] to supervise the instrumentation photography of every missile that went down in that western test range...and into the frame came something else. It flew into the frame and shot a beam of light at the warhead. Now remember, all this stuff is flying at several thousand miles an hour. So this thing [UFO] fires a beam of light at the warhead, hits it and then it [the UFO] moves to the other side and fires another beam of light, then moves again and fires another beam of light, then goes down and fires another beam of light, and then flies out the way it came in. And the warhead tumbles out of space. The object, the points of light that we saw, the warhead and so forth, were traveling through subspace about 60 miles straight up. And they were going somewhere in the neighborhood of 11,000 to 14,000 miles an hour when this UFO caught up to them, flew in, flew around them, and flew back out.

Jacobs experience along with other incidents of UFOs interfering with nuclear missiles and facilities is covered in a book by Robert Hastings, UFOs and Nukes.

Cronkite ultimately choose not to include his own UFO experience in his 1973 CBS Special. While Cronkite, according to Knell, told a few friends and researchers about the UFO incident, he never made a public statement about it. Cronkite’s passing away on July 17, 2009 will be mourned by many. Something else to consider is that he perhaps took to the grave one of the most remarkable UFO incidents ever witnessed by a U.S. reporter.

[UPDATE 7/19/09 – DISCLAIMER – BILL KNELL MYSTERY SOLVED!] After receiving very critical emails and comments from people claiming that Bill Knell is a known liar, cheat, that he made up his story about meeting Walter Cronkite, I began a closer investigation of his background. I have found that Knell has indeed left a trail of deception behind him. Some of which is criminal in nature. In his interviews, he sounds very sincere and persuasive in relating not only his alleged meeting with Cronkite, but also meetings with Jackie Gleason and other famous persons with alleged first hand experience concerning extraterrestrial life.

I became very curious at the dichotomy between his apparent sincerity in sharing information, and his egregious behavior. He claims to have been an Air Force brat, son of a general no less. What was most helpful in solving the mystery of Bill Knell was an interview he did on the Kevin Smith show in January 2008 In the interview, it was revealed that he is closely associated with Dick Criswell and had also met with (Dr) Michael Wolf, a very controversial whistleblower as revealed in a debate between Dr Richard Boylan and Stanton Friedman.. Criswell phoned in during the interview saying how closely he worked with Knell. Both Criswell and Wolf claim that they worked for ALPHACOM, a CIA counterintelligence program under James Jesus Angleton to acclimate the general public about extraterrestrial life. I have been aware of this program for some time and up to now have successfully kept my distance from it.

At this stage, I have to conclude that Knell is part of an intelligence program (Alphacom or similar program) to hide UFO/ET information in plain sight. If so, Knell has developed a perfect cover with his shady background, embellishing the truth, criminal activities, but yet putting out genuine information out there in any case. I suspect that Cronkite probably did have a UFO experience similar to what Knell claims, but different enough so he could publicly disavow it when asked as he did in an email to UFO researchers. So I recommend great caution with the claims of Bill Knell who is part of an acclimation program that embellishes genuine information with false facts.

Nice to see that no one has yet attacked Walter Cronkites'
credibility regarding his first hand account of this
incredible event. btw-I thing it's HIGHLY unlikely that
the military had (or has) the technology to freeze -
in midair - a just launched missle!

Actually this isn't the first time I've heard of UFO's intercepting missiles. Particularly, I have previously read of nuclear weapons being disarmed by UFO's, some in mid-launch, others in silos. They commonly didn't explode the missiles, however, they seem to make all chemical and nuclear properties of the weapon totally inert, mysteriously ceasing fission in the warhead with these "light beams." It's refreshing (in a way) to know that they are protecting us (or their interests) in this way, whoever these entities are, human or not.

Hello all,

I've just read your blog thread about Walter Cronkite allegedly seeing a UFO shoot down a nuclear missile. This hoax was created by one Bill Knell who is a liar, a fraud, and under investigation by law enforcement authorities in Lebanon, Indiana, in the United States.

In July, after Exopolitics' Michael Salla posted an article at his website, in which he recounted the Knell tale as if it were credible--and then mentioned my own well-documented research on UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites--I wrote to Salla to rebuke him.

Salla has consistently been one of the most uninformed, incompetent, and yet arrogant "researchers" in the field of ufology. Unfortunalely, when he blurts out his garbage, many websites, like this one, pick it up and repeat it as if it were credible information from a legitimate source. Unfortunately, in the case of Michael Salla, that is almost never true.

Dear Mr Hastings,

I mentioned you and your book in the article below. If you would like to send me a review copy, I can do a more detailed article on your book for my Examiner column. I have thousands of readers so it should help promote awareness of the important issues you discuss in your book.

Dr. Salla,

Classic! Precisely what I would expect from you. The Cronkite story was discredited years ago. Bill Knell?! You are actually citing Bill Knell as a credible source of information?! Why don't you do your homework before you publish or blurt out this kind of nonsense.

As I told you once before, my well-grounded research on the UFO-Nukes Connection can only be harmed by your mentioning it in your incompetently-researched articles. In my view, your public utterances have set back legitimate UFO research by decades.

Ever hear of Richard Hall? He died yesterday. You and your ilk would benefit from reading what credible persons--research giants such as Hall--have published over the years. IMHO, the corrosive effect of your influence is every bit as damaging to the UFO-disclosure process as the disingenuous UFO-debunking articles regularly offered-up by CSICOP/CSI.

I cringe every time I hear someone associate my work with what you publish. Please don't do me any more favors.
