Mystery missile was an Airplane?
The U.S. government now claims that the object of the mysterious object off the coast of California on November 9th, 2010 was an airplane.
Dr. Michio Kaku, professor of physics at City University of New York argued that since the object seemed to change directions, it could not be a ballistic missile, because BM can't change directions. Frankly, it didn't seem to change directions in the video I saw.
Former Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Ellsworth was believed it could have been a test firing of an ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) from a U.S. submarine. Russia Today spoke with Military expert Viktor Mizin about the object and he believed that it was a ballistic missile launched from an underwater submarine.
"I think that it's a great embarrassment by the American military to show that with all of the billions spent on national defense, the United States is vulnerable to these kinds of attacks."
So Was this an accidental missile launch? A show of force from a foreign power? A bullying tactic by the U.S. military?
That flash from the object didn't seem consistent with what I've seem from aircrafts in the past.
