Apparently it's not the long range model. No word yet on the range or target, and it was shot off from a different site than the one with the long range missile.

FROM CNN:

North Korea has test-launched a missile but not the long-range weapon that the U.S. has been monitoring, sources tell CNN.

The missile launched is NOT the Taepodong II missile that we have been watching sit on the pad.

The missile that was launched is reportedly a smaller range missile, fired for purposes unknown.

Most likely of insufficient range to reach U.S. soil, unless you're counting our Embassy down the road in Seoul.

A missile? Is it "The" missile? The Two Stage threat to Alaska , Hawaii, and the West Coast Missile? If so, we should know more in a few minutes.

No apology necessary. You posted a story about an NK missile launch, and it was a legit news item.

Nice work I say! :)

Drudge has it, but it doesn't look like this is the ICBM.

Our shuttle is a heck of a lot more impressive.

Knowing CNN's proclivities I wouldn't be surprised if they had a rocket scientist on site in NK, helping with the launch.

When that Breaking News came across my computer, I thought "What a propaganda move, to fire the missile less than 2 hours after our shuttle launch."

Or maybe Mr. Ronery's got a case of the missile-related version of ED.

A U.S. official familiar with the matter said the United States had been observing a second North Korean missile, possibly a shorter-range, SCUD-type.

Fox News has it. A short-range missile. Not the long-range ICBM we've been watching. These guys are nuts!!

Idiots are just trying to steal some attention from the shuttle launch by firing bottle rockets.

The media is populated by smirking apes who lack any sort of seriousness at all. About anything. Ever.
