Skip to comments.L.A. contrail a missile launch? Retired general thinks so (op-ed)

Sliding silently under the mud, muck and fog of national politics, is a current event that makes Bill Clintons excursion into the world of elderly sex look tame in comparison. This time the nations national security is truly threatened in my opinion, and it involves not only a weak president with limited problem-solving ability, but leadership at the highest levels in the Pentagon as well. The American people would do well to demand a full investigation by an unbiased group, and let the chips fall where they may.
I am referring to the missile shot taken off the California coast recently, and the lame response by NORAD, the Pentagon and the White House itself.
In my opinion, there is absolutely no doubt that what was captured on video off the coast of California was a missile launch, was clearly observed by NORAD, assessed by a four-star general within minutes, and passed to the president immediately. That is the way the system works, and heads fall if there is a failure. This is one of the most important tenets of national defense and its sole purpose of protecting the American people. Even the smallest failure in this system gets intense scrutiny at the highest level.
Now, the question that still must be answered is why NORADs muted response was simply that North America was not threatened, and later our government approved the lame excuse that the picture recorded was simply an aircraft leaving a contrail. This decision was made far above the four-star level, and because the system in place demands it, was made by the president himself.

I’m not the one yelling “Missile!” when I haven’t clue what I am talking about, you are.
Um, thanks. I think.
Did overstate - as I’ve admitted several times - in my first post. Got sat down for it. But I maintain this *might* have been a missile shot, prob a low tech spin-stabilized scud type if it was. Apparently that makes me a conspiracy theory nutjob. Oh well. I also support Palin, DeMint, Bachmann, and Lt. Col. West, so I’m used to the charge. LOL.
PS And thanks for cc’ing me on the comment.
You and your General still haven’t backed up your bullsh*t story about “spin stabilized missiles” by naming an SLBM that does that nor have you stated a single missile that can hang out for ten minutes like that airplane did making that contrail. Go ahead, smarty, we’ll wait.
Ya read much? I don’t buy the SLBM idea. Made that clear. Look at the FROG-7A or the like, fired from a cargo container.
LOL, and hasn't been heard from since. Below is the last known photo of him taken after he made his comments...
The entire time of flight of a Frog or the like missile is less than 5 minutes from launch to impact and they fly a ballistic arc.
Instead of trying to understand what I said, you compare me to a homeless guy. Is that the best you can do? Remember that term, "mental laziness"? Feel a fit coming on?
No wonder the first word to describe your rants popped up from my Texian Lexicon -- it still fits. And you still need to go back and see who started that discussion -- before I do it publicly for you...
His problem wasn’t the homelessness he was a schizophrenic.
