Moore In The Vecinity?

This just looks like an incident involving methane & hydrogen sulfide gas, a lighter, & Michael Moore's big lardbutt...

In reality it's a target missile, a simulated ICBM with a mock warhead, that was launched without problem from Kodiak, Alaska, at 12:45 a.m. EST, a statement from the Defense Department's Missile Defense Agency said.

However, 16 minutes later, an "unknown anomaly" led to an automatic shutdown of the interceptor missile shortly before it was to launch from the Ronald Reagan Test Site at Kwajalein Atoll in the central Pacific Ocean.

Unfortunately, the target missile crashed into the ocean.

Back to the drawing board, guys. This isn't rocket, well it is...but if anyone can make it work, it's the U.S.A.
