People talk about a "slow news day" but this is slower than molases. On November 9 2010 (that is this year folks) we wrote an article on ALLVOICES about the "mystery Missile" fired off the California coast. In said article we questioned why the people at Point Mugu NAS (Naval Air Station) and the Pacific Missile Test range had not been quized. Secondly, we questioned why the tower operators at NAS Pt. Mugu were not quized.
So we called NAS Mugu--We were stationed there for a few years--both active duty and later as a drilling reservist. We got everything from "we can't discuss the incident" to "Tower operators are not permitted to discuss Naval operations in this area" so we backed away.
Evidently World Net has more juice than actionwriter because this is what (part of) is on their web today.
"Intermittent missile firing operations 00001Z to 2359Z daily Monday thru Sunday in the Naval Air Warfare Center Sea Range," the warning said. "The majority of missile firings take place 1400Z to 2359Z and 0001Z to 0200Z daily Monday thru Friday." The contrail sighting by the KCBS television crew occurred during these time periods. Karen Sinn of the NGA told WND that the NGA only issued the missile launch advisory as a courtesy for its customer, the Naval Air Warfare Center Sea Range at Point Mugu in California.
Point Mugu, which is located some 50 miles northwest from Los Angeles, is a massive facility that includes a weapons division and the Sea Range Operational Area, comprised of the main base complex at Point Mugu which includes the Laguna Peak complex, the offshore islands and the adjacent 36,000 square nautical miles of controlled operational air space.
At the Naval Air Warfare Center Sea Range, spokeswoman Becky Hall was asked by WND whether the sighting of the contrail occurred during the period of the NGA warning, and did the coordinates mentioned in the warning notice conform to the area in which the contrail was sighted. She also was asked whether the Navy, in fact, had launched any missiles in the area during the warning period. Hall, however, refused to answer any of the questions or make any comment on its warning issued through the NGA.
"I am sorry to say that I will be unable to help you with this request (for information)," she told WND, and referred the inquiry to the press desk of the Office of the Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon.
REFERRED to the Office of the SEC DeF? That big??
I think we hit a nerve-- I still want to hear from NORAD. Just tell us NORAD, YES or NO? we'll let it go at that.
