Sorry Herb, the conclusion states; "Unfortunately, we can't solve this one conclusively because we don't have a launch time." Something else required is common sense. The "ICBM" would have been travelling at about 8,000-9,000 per hour and clearly recorded by American radar. One aircraft had it in sight for 10 minutes. If you do the math-splitting the speed at 8,500mph - that means that the crew would have seen the UFO arching across the sky for a distance of 1,417 miles which at their altitude was just too far for them to see over the horizon. This object was travelling too slowly to be an ICBM. As your writer has already discovered, this is still unsolved. Not sure why you say that he claimed it was. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
