A Senator and the Blue Room

My latest Mysterious Universe article is on the enduring controversy surrounding the late Senator Barry Goldwater's words on the so-called "Hangar 18" and "Blue Room."

As to why I chose to write the article now, there's a not insignificant "50th anniversary" angle to the affair.

It begins like this...

"Born in 1909, Barry Morris Goldwater served as a Major-General in the U.S. Air Force, a Senator for Arizona, the Chairman of the U.S. Government’s Senate Intelligence Committee, and the Republican Party’s nominee for President of the United States in the 1964 election. Indeed, it was on May 2, 1964 – 50 years ago this very week – that Goldwater received no less than 75 percent of the vote in the Texas Republican Presidential primary.

"Had Goldwater won the election (he lost it to Lyndon B. Johnson), it’s not at all out of the question that we might, by now, have in our possession the full and unexpurgated facts concerning what the world of officialdom really knows about the UFO phenomenon."
