If this is true, lets just blame Bush. After all, BUSH had the PRIME opportunity to address border security after 9 11 and failed to do so.

No. It wasn’t a missle. It was a bird. Yes, a really fast moving bird. Trust us.

There is no indication that this is terrorist related.

Glad it was reported in a timely manner. Guess they didn't want anybody to think it was a TERRORIST!

Probably an overgrown model rocket launched by some stupid kid. A real AA missile wouldn’t miss.

Yes, I believe near the same airport. Sounds like they have a better description of the event this time.

Still sounds like a bored kid with model rockets to me.

This is really big. The FAA told the sheriff that it was a “missile”. To get to 12,000 feet, it must have been a big missile.

Probably an overgrown model rocket launched by some stupid kid. A real AA missile wouldn’t miss.

Neither would a surface-to-air missile. With the borders we have open, one shudders to think of how many shoulder fired SAMS have made it across the border, just waiting to be used.
The USSR has an abundance of these:


On the top a SA-18 (Igla) missile, launch tube and grip stick. Below is a SA-16 (Igla-1) missile and launch tube.

There was a ping on one of the earlier threads from this summer, this is a June article (posted today).

There have been several incidents in the area (2 that were months apart) but this is not a third incident.

It’s clear that the most recent Osama tape had a lot of “wake up” messages in it.

America has been very blessed not to have been attacked in the last month.
