Coming from someone who didn't know American military bases were located in his own country?
If I have to make a guess, I'm about ten years ahead of you in education and knowledge. Quite possibly an extensive amount of years added on-top of that number. Since my father and his brothers were in the military, I knew the answer to that question. Did I mention that I live in the United States?

Well it is certainly possible that what Arnold saw were secret aircraft it is highly ambiguous and misleading to call this case "debunked". There are other aspects to this story that don't fit well with the German theory.
Originally posted by PathosBefore we get to that point, could we not say that, "The Horten design could have inspired the design for the XB and YB planes?" (Like it has been documented.)
Could we also say that, "The Horten design could have inspired the design of other unknown military planes, which other allied countries could have developed?"
Could it be possible that Anrold saw an unknown military craft, inspired by the Horten design, bu create by an unknown third nation?"

My problem with this explanation is that we have to basically ignore Arnold's description of what he saw - except the craft design - and then make several assumptions about unknown craft by unknown nations, apparently without any evidence.
And any such craft would still far impossible short of the flight characteristics Arnold described.

When an artists drew the design based upon Arnold's description, he drew it according to Arnold's perspective of the craft. Angle, sunlight, distance, and other elements determined the shape, line, and form that Arnold saw. Correct? Could sunlight and distance change how an object looks from his vantage point?
From his personal perspective, the air-craft moved in a particular manner that didn't match his understanding of aviation. Correct?
Now, how can we come to the conclusion that he saw an alien made flying saucer if we go by his perceptions?
Could we not say that there is a possibility that another individual (in the military in some country) knew what they were? Could we also say that there is a possibility that another person (in the military in some country) knows how they work? Could Arnold have made a mistake in his testimony based upon his vantage point, angle of the sun, and distance?
We will get to the proof in a minute. We are first focusing on the logic of possibility, perspective, and perception.
