Possible Attack on US AW Flight 17

Michelle has learned that the incident was a flock of birds triggering the missile detection system. Nice to know the planes have missile detection systems on them!


There is nothing confirmed, but lots of rumors floating around the net of some kind of missile attack on a US domestic flight America West 17 out of New York City last Thursday.

Stay tuned.

All it took was a simple phone call to find out that the story was bogus, but she printed it first and called later. This simply confirms how much the right want to keep Americans in a state of fear for a political end.
