Some of you guys need to learn PAO speak. IF this is real, the Public Affairs officer told the absolute truth. There are no capabilites to launch a missile like that on the base. He didn't say a word about anything off the base, such as a ship just off the coast, outside the base.
Scott Sistek at KOMO TV says that they contacted the Navy about it yesterday. The Whidbey NAS spokesperson says they don’t have missile launch facilities there; Navy west coast spokesman said no ships in area.
