Actually it seems the report on Washington was a hoax too.....
I am posting this one at ATSSN also.

" NEW YORK Associated Press editors were forced to retract an earlier report that a meteorite might have hit near Olympia, Wash., this morning after discovering that a source, one Bradley Hammermaster, claiming to be an astronomy professor, had perpetrated a hoax.

"An early report that a meteor might have hit turned out to be false," said AP spokesman Jack Stokes. "It looks like a version (of the story) was killed because it talked about a meteorite hitting." He said AP was reviewing how the error occurred. "

Excerpted from.

What is it with people and hoaxes this past few weeks?.....

I am not an expert in either miltary or astronomy, but i can't help but
think there is a connection between W's intinery(the next 6 days),
the G8 meeting and the Iraq hand-over. And what better way to test
the 'Allies' capabilities under the guise of war games.

Woohoo, I scare Banshee....yeahhh!!!

The hoax was about a professor appearing in a radio show saying that a meteorite had crashed in Washington, but the original report is true. people, including a moderator here at ATS saw and heard a sharp boom last night.

Hey, could be on to something. Sorry, no link so I quote the entire story:

SINGAPORE - Fears are growing of terrorism in the Malacca Straits, the pirate-ridden Southeast Asian waterway that is a conduit for half the world's oil supply.
Despite those concerns, the Muslim nations of Indonesia and Malaysia have rebuffed U.S. offers to help police the strategic route. Part of the agenda when Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld meets Asian officials Friday and Saturday will be Pentagon proposals to help provide intelligence, conduct joint patrols and send U.S. Marines into the straits.

The United States and Singapore believe the 50,000 commercial vessels - from cruise ships to supertankers - that travel through the straits each year are vulnerable targets for al-Qaida and its South Asian affiliates.

The narrow, 550-mile-long waterway straddling Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore has been a pirates' paradise since the 1800s. Piracy worldwide has tripled in the past decade, rising by 20 percent last year alone, said the U.N. International Maritime Bureau. It counted 189 incidents in Southeast Asia, more than 40 percent of the 2003 total.

"There is a fear that terrorists could resort to pirate-style tactics, or even work in concert with pirates," the maritime bureau's Secretary-General Efthimios Mitropoulos said.

"An uptrend in crew abductions could signal a move by terrorists to train themselves in operating and navigating large commercial vessels," he added during a late-May visit to Singapore.

Anybody interested in what is claimed to be the true answers to this thread is advised to read my posting on this thread:

The fact that someone claimed their distribution of meteorite information was a hoax is indeed a hoaxed hoax. E.g. the truth was distributed and a group of people who didn't want that infor being spread claimed they made it up as a hoax.

I am not a doomsday follower in anyway, especially after all the hype surrounding the Millenium predictions by Nostradamus turned out to be fake but I keep an open mind in these things without taking drastic or extreme actual and attempting to continue living my daily life as usual, just with eyes and ears wider open and being more prepared for evidence that it is indeed true.

This from another board...

"All , just got in a message and good tape on intercept on AF freqs UHF of ongoing attack by an surf to surf missile on a ship today in Atlantic, it was on guard freq for emergency use AF. It was recorded and on Partial tape, info on that sight. "

Very very interesting soundclip!! It says it was recorded May 25 on the website. That is just a couple of days before the Carriers headed out!! It says it was supposedly under attack by Iranian surface ships on the website.

It is the first clip.

Now you guys are coming up with some good stuff!

Almost spooky... Anyway I am wondering what this all means too.. I mean yesterday was shocked to see information changed, removed or all together blocked.. see my thread in this fourm with the word Urgent on it. I have been seeking answers on this topic as well. But really no luck finding anything.

My question is this.. Is this naval activity unusual? is this something that has gone on before or is this the first time ever that this many nations has all had these ships out at sea for combined training missions???

This just came in from Bruce Beach's news letter...

Just part of it. I don't have a link.

Interesting story
came my way
many months ago -
which I intimated at
but said I wouldn't tell
because 'loose lips sink ships'
but the Navy itself
publishes a deployment information site
and since the information is now there
and I am sure that the North Koreans
and the Chinese and Russians
can read it as well as anyone else -
I will talk about it.
I doubt that they read my newsletter

A state food inspector
reported to me her visit
to a civilian ship repair yard
with contracts for nuclear submarines.
These places have cafeterias for their employees
and have to be inspected just like anywhere else.
Anyway there was a lot of activity there -
and guess what they were doing -
tearing out the nuclear missile launch tubes.
To make room for troops
that would sneak in close to shore.

Now read these
from the Navy sites.

On Feb. 23, USS La Jolla (SSN 701), Los Angeles Class nuclear-powered attack
submarine, departed on a Western Pacific deployment from its homeport of
Pearl Harbour. It serves as a platform for Special Operations Forces. More
than 30 additional Sailors were brought onboard as part of Seal Delivery
Vehicle Team One.

In the last days of April, from Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego, USS Salt
Lake City (SSN 716) departed to conduct operations throughout the Western

The Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) Mystic has participated in
Pacific Reach 2004 exercise that was held in South Korea during the first
half of May. The Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS La Jolla (SSN 701)
and the rescue and salvage ship USS Safeguard (ARS 50) have also
participated in this exercise.

USS Tucson (SSN 770), the 20th of the Improved-Los Angeles class attack
submarine to be built, departed for a Western Pacific deployment from its
homeport of Pearl Harbour on May 19, to conduct extended operations. This
submarine has one of the most advanced fire control systems the Navy has in
its inventory.

On May 24, USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63) returns to its forward deployed homeport
of Yokosuka, Japan, after successfully completing its annual spring underway
period. During this period, Kitty Hawk and Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5 traveled
more than 25,000 nautical miles and completed Tailored Ship's Training
Availability (TSTA) I and II, a Missile Exercise (MISSILEX), Blue Water
Operations, and War-at-Sea exercises (WASEX).

USS Belleau Wood (LHA 3) Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG), with more than
5,000 Sailors and 11th Marine Expeditionary Force, which is certified as
special operations capable, on board, sailed from San Diego on May 27 for
the Western Pacific in support of the global war on terrorism. The remainder
of the strike group, including the fast attack submarine USS Charlotte (SSN
766), will depart in the coming weeks. This is the first ESG to be commanded
by a Marine Corps general.

The Department of Defence announced June 2 that this summer, simultaneous
deployment of seven aircraft carrier strike groups (CSGs) will demonstrate
the ability of the Navy to provide credible combat power across the globe by
operating in five theaters with other U.S., allied and coalition military

Beginning with the week of June 3, and continuing through August, the U.S.
Navy exercise "Summer Pulse 04" will include scheduled deployments, surge
operations, joint and international exercises and other advanced training
and port visits.

The seven aircraft carriers involved in Summer Pulse 04 will include already
deployed USS George Washington (CVN 73) CSG and USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74)
CSG, USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63), USS John F Kennedy (CV 67) CSG, USS Harry S.
Truman (CVN 75) CSG, and USS Enterprise (CVN 65) CSG. USS Ronald Reagan (CVN
76) will conduct operations in the U.S. Northern Command and U.S. Southern
Command theaters during the ship's interfleet transfer from Norfolk, Va., to
its Pacific Fleet homeport of San Diego.

And all that
is just what is being reported
on the Naval scene.
You have to remember
it is all still just psyops.
What is not being reported
is what is important.

Australian troops deploy to South Pacific on multinational evacuation exercise

In 1895, military defeat forced China to cede Taiwan to Japan, however it reverted to Chinese control after World War II. Following the communist victory on the mainland in 1949, 2 million Nationalists fled to Taiwan and established a government that over five decades has gradually democratized and incorporated the native population within its structure. Throughout this period, the island has prospered to become one of East Asia's economic "Tigers." The dominant political issue continues to be the relationship between Taiwan and China and the question of eventual reunification.

If China is making overture towards Taiwan, this could be a good enough reason for some sabre-rattling by the US. The appearance of half the US fleet in the Phillipine Sea is bound to make the Chinese Govt think again about any military option for reunification.

Just a thought. Sorry there's no asteroid in it.

This is just the result of thoughts, I am thinking it could be possible that a quick overpowering invasion of North Korea could be in the works.. with the obvious risks to global security that North Korea poses I can't help but wonder.. and things have been very quiet from the government of late about North Korea. and there is news that we are about to pull out massive numbers of U.S. soldiers in south Korea that can be taken two ways. I think you know what I mean.

Just another what if to throw into the pot here!


Edit: you can see more about why I think this is very possible here:

Can someone explain this to me.
Yeah, i know it's a weather station.
But, what's this...

I can't find a date on any search. Lot's of strange locations, numbers etc.
And ship blocks i.d.# in increments of 10. 71 one of them. But, the whole
list is strange.
