Skip to comments.Amazing Interview: Air Force General says "Sub Launched Missile, 100% Certain"
Posted on 11/13/2010 2:55:59 PM PST by DontTreadOnMe2009
Hannity was surprised to hear a famous ex Air Force General tell him That Is A Missile, Shot From A Submarine! I quote retired Air Force Lieutenant General Tom McInerney (ex commander of 11th Air Force in Alaska) I spent 35 years flying fighters, and you can see the guidance system kick in, I have watched that film 10 times, I am absolutely certain that that is not an aircraft, but a sub launch ICBM missile!!! See the video and judge his words for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LivRJOWrcpA&feature=player_embedded#! I will next post a clickable link.
Reporter adds: "I am not just hearing it from the General, I am hearing it from other sources too. It leaves me to wonder if NORAD knows what they are doing."
Next, Hannity is amazed to hear another reporter say "It may be a toy rocket !!!"
"It could be a bunch a kids on a boat, pranking."
The General then replies:
"If you go to any fighter squadron, Navy or Air Force, in the world today, they are going to agree with me..."
Note: He is a command pilot with more than 4,100 flying hours, including 407 combat missions during the Vietnam War. In addition to his Vietnam Service, Gen. McInerney served overseas in NATO; Pacific Air Forces, and as commander of 11th Air Force in Alaska. Currently, he is a Fox News contributor, and is a member of the Iran Policy Committee.
So, we now have:
1) The Editor at Jane's Missile Magazine, Doug Richardson, saying: "Unmistakable missile, you can tell from the exhaust plume".
2) The former Deputy Secretary of Defense, and former US Ambassador to NATO Robert Ellsworth saying "Spectacular; takes your breath away; that is an underwater sub launched ICBM missile!" and "Too big a smoke plume for the Taliban" (Gee, that's good to know).
and now we have famed Lieutenant General Thomas G. McInerney saying the exact same thing, only more emphatically, on Fox News.
Whose missile? For what purpose? Related to events in Korea? G-20 warning or reply from China?
Crazy NORKs ?
Why is the US government stone walling its own people?
Embarrassment? Know any military with inside news?
Will more information leak out in coming days from shocked staffers at the Pentagon and NORAD?
“That Is A Missile Shot From A Submarine!”
states retired Lieutenant General Tom McInerney, Fighter Pilot
I don’t think that “It’s certain” ...
But a sub-launched missile fits all the data. It makes sense.
And Obama’s/the administration’s coverup makes sense. See - THEY don’t anybody else to point start pointing fingers at the Chinese.
Because the Chinese are Obama’s only (non-Muslim) allies.
Ah, but any of the rest of us are near racists for not towing the contrail line.
I'm glad he's retired.
As soon as I heard about this I immediately thought of the 1996 TWA Flt 800 disaster. Odd, I haven’t heard or read any comparisons in the media. Perhaps I haven’t been paying attention.
the government is doing the same thing they did with ufo’s.
US, Russian...or Chinese?
No kidding. We've got FReepers calling us "missile truthers" and some who are truly upset that we dare question the contrail story.
What is going on here?
We are the “media” these days and we’ve compared and contrasted it plenty ~ now go take a look at a website that PROVES this is an airplane. It’s a picture taken of the same sector of the sky on November 9 at the same time. There’s a contrail from an airplane in the picture that’s more than incredibly similar to the one in the film: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2626757/posts?page=61#61
Now I don’t know about how reliable these Freepers are, but could be they are on to something!
This is what’s going on. Check out the considered opinion and field work of OTHER Freepers ~ http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2626757/posts?page=61#61
I want to know where the thing landed......
The press steadfastly refused to report TWA 800 as a shoot-down, despite scores of independent witnesses who saw a rocket rise from the ocean and strike the aircraft. Clinton was in the White House.
I'll be very surprised if they show that Barry Soetero left the US with its pants down.
My guess is they are less reliable than General McInerney and Doug Richardson of Jane's Missiles and Rockets.
I didn’t see this segment, so thanks for posting this. After so many actual experts (as opposed to armchair guessers) saying this was a missile, I’m convinced that’s what it was. The only question remaining is, whose missile was it?
Add this to the Internet speculation that the recent gulf oil rig explosion was actually caused by an NK sub, and we are going to need alot more tin foil.
I watched the video and it sure looked like a missile to me.
It certainly isn’t any ordinary plane. It looks like a solid fuel booster to me.
Conceivably it could be some kind of experimental plane, but in that case, where did it take off from? No signs of an aircraft carrier in the area, which pretty much leaves the only reasonable alternative that it was launched from a submarine.
Chinese sub is my guess. I simply can’t imagine our own government taking the risk of firing a submarine launched missile over the U.S. and possibly Canada.
Well he’s 100% wrong. LOL
The story here isn’t the contrail anymore.
It’s the threads like these and how far off those who the media tells us are “experts” on such phenomenon.
How bout an amateur missle shot from a Chris-Craft? Not an SLBM in my opinion.
Thanks for that
They’re acting like the 21st century version of the Center Fuel Tank crowd.
For a “missile” that did zero damage it sure makes a great distraction from far more important issues.
I’m starting to think it was a missle launched by our guys to be used as a distraction. If they wanted to shut down conspiracy talk they could have simply claimed to have launched it themselves.
I am shocked ~ totally shocked ~ and to think that last week on November 3 when the Blue UFO hovered over top the Satellite Service near Centerville VA I didn’t call everybody’s attention to the fact they launched all the jet fighters out of a nearby Army airbase. Try this thread http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2626757/posts?page=61#61
I think it’s most likely it was from an airplane, but who knows for sure?
In order to successfully threaten and intimidate, you have to leave no doubt that that is what you are doing. In my opinion this “is it a missile or not?” stuff is much too subtle for the thugs in Beijing.
I’ll settle this thing once and for all, it was a jet fired from a submarine! ;-)
What is going on here ?
Don’t you believe you govt? /sarc
I predict you are going to get tread on.
McInerny is spot on.
I forgot to add
#3) Webcam operators at LAX “Incredible. Have not seen anything like it in our 20 years at LAX. Not sure what it was but very fast” (This link posted previously)
#4) Interview on Hannity with General Tom McInerney
Quite a few photos at the blog posting: http://state-of-the-nation.com/
I have posted several photos here on FR previously ...
And a search for title word “missile” will turn up many others:
Vertical missle contrails will not leave a shadow like this one did in this photo;
It’s basic physics, think it though.
Remember: The government doesn't work for the people, the people work for the government.
LOL! LBJ cured me of that!
Pretty good argument here that it was a plane:
You beat me.
“I predict you are going to get tread on.”
Nice thing about this is I can very safely predict
this kind of contrail illusion will continue to happen again and again in the future.
I also predict nobody will ever type “I was wrong” about this. LOL
I’m not worried, because the photo looks like the “missile” is headed east, away from the Pacific coast. I’m thinking their ( whoever “their” is) aim isn’t very good, if they were trying to hit something.
Yet US Airways has clammed up since day one.
They did an admirable job of covering up that shoot down. TWA Flt 800, it brings back memories of the bogus fuel tank explosion.
“Pretty good argument here that it was a plane:
Beyond obvious it was.
But that isn’t what it’s about now.
I believe you are right about that last one. :)
"Shots across the bow" aren't meant to hit anything.
That would be the biggest missile launch in all of human history ~ kind of like tying a dozen Saturn Vs together.
When you look up at something maybe 37,000 feet away (6 miles) you are looking through 1/20, at most, the amount of air you are looking through to see the "base" of the contrail. See how it spreads out to the horizon? It's being magnified just like a Full Moon rising on the horizon. It narrows the closer it gets to you as the magnification is reduced.
They say that the closer to the beginning of time we look, the larger the stars appear ~ and that was recently reported to definitely be true. It has to do with the way light is dealt with as it passes through matter and spreads out. Magnifying glasses, eyeblasses, lense appliances inserted after cataract surgery, etc. all work according to the same optical principles.
This stuff happens on large scales and small.
Stick with the truth and don’t worry about what others think. I am now going to have to change my mind. I originally thought it was San Fran Nan’s broom going through test flights. No big jet to fly around in don’t ya know. Now I think Chi-coms sending the Big O a message about QE2. He couldn’t care less if a 100 million of us die. So...that won’t work out for them.
I spent 35 years flying fighters, and you can see the guidance system kick in...The first assertion is meaningless unless he spent those 35 years flying fighters while observing ballistic missile launches.
And the guidance system in those suckers is running in the launching tube or silo. It doesn't 'kick in'. I suspect he's thinking about the old SA-2 system we flew against in Vietnam, which followed a pre-programed launch trajectory until the booster dropped off, exposing the guidance antennas.
There are no missiles in LA, Not a single one.
Colin Powell says Obama will be the best President. This Lt. General says it's a SLBM.
It's like we've devolved into the Soviet Union or PRC.
I didn’t see in the video where the missile emerges from the briney deep and lights up, but the rest of the trip certainly looked like a missile.
