Could be a coincidence,
But coincidence often perks up the ears of those that frequent conspiracy sites like this. That, and the complete confusion and amount of time that it took for answers to come out about what should not have been a mystery.

A 7200-ft debris plume is consistent with a 200,000-250,000 lb explosion. The bunker is designed to direct the force of the explosion upward, and in the aerial footage the trees seem to be taken out in a plus-sign sort of shape, extending out a couple hundred feet in either direction. That's not a small area, but it was definitely smaller than it would've been had the bunker's design not been effective (and also much smaller than it would've been had a meteor struck the bunker).
ETA: but that doesn't preclude some sort of bunker buster.edit on 18-10-2012 by CLPrime because: (no reason given)

BREAKING: There certainly seems to be an uptick in meteor activity unlike anything I've seen in previous years.

It doesn't take a million dollar missile to blow up a bunker full of explosives. Someone with moderate technical skills and a pair of bolt-cutters to get in the fence would be all that was needed. This is no longer a federal installation, but state owned or managed property. Like many de-activated bases, it now serves industry, usually the kind you don't want next to your house. Security, if it exists, is about the same as you'd find at a heavy equipment yard.
The whole thing smells to me, but we really know so little...
