Sources have indicated that there was not only a missile in Southern California but also in Phoenix and on the east coast. Whether this is true remains to be seen.
This had to show on radar. Why is the Pentagon and NORAD claiming the US and Canada are not in any danger, but are still claiming they don’t know who shot the missile? Fox News asked them this and the Pentagon would not answer. If they don’t know who did this, why was the threat alert not immediately raised and everything locked down? I don’t see this on global security news or Stratfor… What the hell?
My two cents – this was a missile launch. It is not a plane and they can make excuses about light all they want – it’s a missile launch. Beck posed that it could be China or someone else showing us their strength. Entirely possible, except you would think we would respond, but who knows anymore?

The Pentagon spends billions of dollars a year making sure it is never surprised by a missile launch – so finding out what the camera saw became a top priority. Both the Navy and the Air Force insisted they had not launched any missiles and the North American Air Defense Command – which is supposed to track incoming missiles – declared it had not been fired by any other military. But nobody could say what it was.
But Doug Richardson, the editor of Jane’s Missiles and Rockets, examined the video for the Times of London and said he was left with little doubt.
“It’s a solid propellant missile,” he told the Times. “You can tell from the efflux [smoke].”
Richardson said it could have been a ballistic missile launched from a submarine or an interceptor, the defensive anti-missile weapon used by Navy surface ships.
