In a now-viral podcast interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the primetime news anchor said a Stanford professor told him that federal officials tasked the educator with investigating several cases of troops dying from traumatic brain injuries caused by UFOs.
Carlson shared the story during a “Full Send Podcast” interview last week, where he claimed an unidentified tenured Stanford Medical professor, who specializes in traumatic brain injuries, reached out to his team requesting to appear on the Fox News show to talk about a decade-old conversation between him and the U.S. government.
“He’s like, 11 years ago, the U.S. government reached out to me because I’m an expert on head injuries on brain injuries … traumatic brain injuries … as a physician,” Carlson said. “And they had all these court cases from families of U.S. servicemen — over 100 — who had been killed by UFOs. And the Department of Defense was refusing to give them death benefits or medical benefits.”
According to Carlson, the anonymous source said he was an expert researcher and witness who claimed nuclear energy appears to attract UFOs in such cases.
He said nuclear missile bases with nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines in the upper midwest have all been “buzzed” by the mysterious objects.
“And in a number of cases, these things have landed on military bases … servicemen have approached them … and they approach, and they get a traumatic brain injury, brain damage, or they’re killed,” Carlson said.
Carlson said there are dozens of open court cases that support the claim.

Defense Department spokesperson Susan Gough told Military Times, “the story is false.”
Carlson, however, told the podcast hosts that if he ever encountered such objects or extra-terrestrial life, he would interview the unknown from a distance.
“I’d be super respectful,” he said, adding, “whatever is coming off these machines is very bad for the human body.”
UFO headlines have been circulating throughout the news media over the last few months after U.S. officials shot down four objects over North America this month, including a Chinese spy balloon off the coast of South Carolina and three similar objects in Alaska, Michigan, and Canada.
Following the response from federal officials, top Biden administration officials briefed senators on both sides of the aisle about the flying objects, which left lawmakers with more questions than answers, while demanding the government should disclose what was said during the classified meeting.
Pentagon officials said in a draft document last week that a dominant artificial interstellar object could be releasing many small probes toward Earth.
“These ‘dandelion seeds’ could be separated from the parent craft by the tidal gravitational force of the Sun or by a maneuvering capability,” the report read.
