Sneaky Americans...

Testing new missile technology but flatly denying any knowledge of it. Transparency, I suppose, was breached by none other but the very source which were crying, b*tchin' and demanding of it...

Sneaky sneaky...

Pentagon can't explain 'missile' off California

Pentagon can't explain 'missile' launch off California, says officials are looking into it

The Pentagon Tuesday said it was trying to determine if a missile was launched Monday off the coast of Southern California and who might have launched it.

Spokesmen for the Navy, Air Force, Defense Department and North American Aerospace Defense Command said they were looking into a video posted on the CBS News website that appears to show a rocket or some other object shooting up into the sky and leaving a large contrail over the Pacific Ocean.

The video was shot by a KCBS helicopter, the station said Tuesday.

"Nobody within the Department of Defense that we've reached out to has been able to explain what this contrail is, where it came from," Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said. "So far, we've come up empty with any explanation."

Lapan said officials are talking to the Air Force, Navy and NORAD as well as civilian authorities who control and monitor air space.

"Right now, all indications are that there was not (Department of Defense) involvement in this," Lapan said, adding that some object might have been launched by a private company.

Officials had no information to make them suspect that the action was taken by any U.S. adversary.

"At this point, until we know more information about what it may have been, there is not alarm," Lapan said. "But that could change depending on what we find out."

Associated Press writer Jeff Wilson contributed to this report from Los Angeles.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

Could be one of those new PRIVATE space launch companies will minimal operating cost, buying parts developed by the huge NASA, military R&D budgets and with low overheads!

Competition in the aerospace industry could come in such forms!
The only reason for NASA, military aerospace system to cost a "bomb" is due to the large R&D staffing, and low production units!

cheerios!

R&D is never cheap GD, especially NASA and pentagon R&D. Low production units isn't due to R&D. This merely adds to the production cost......EG; B2.
