Real Reason DARPA lost the speed machine

Lost Contact with Hypersonic Glider

So they are claiming that this is its maiden voyage when in reality the air force as lost 2 of these during test flights.

Good to see that they learn from their mistakes.

Could this be the explanation for the unexplained rocket launch off the West Coast last year, or could it be in response to that unknown rocket launch? Just curious.

Good catch!


And another clear indicator of how the Military Industrial Complex, the Financial cartel that backs them , and the media they own, operate to serve their desired illusion that all things "weaponry" are 'especially good things.'
