Status-6 the purported Russian super-weapon a topic of discussion at the Congressional level! Courtesy of the Free Beacon and our Bill Gertz thanks to the tip from Dee.
"State Official: Russian Nuclear-Armed Drone Sub Threatens US"
"Moscow questioned on secret drone program"
"Russia’s development of a nuclear-armed drone submarine capable of inflicting widespread damage on U.S. coasts poses a serious threat, a senior State Department official testified on Tuesday."
. . . .
". . . The NATO code name for the drone, which intelligence analysts say would be armed with a multi-megaton nuclear warhead for use against U.S. harbors and coastal cities, is 'Kanyon.'”
. . . .
"A CIA analysis of the document and television report assessed that the disclosure was intentional and part of Russian nuclear saber-rattling."
SABER-RATTLING PERHAPS STATUS-6 DELIBERATE DISINFORMATION INTENDED TO FOOL AND SCARE AMERICAN DECISION MAKERS ? GRANDIOSE WEAPONS OF THIS TYPE OFTEN HAVING A MILITARY VERSATILITY AND UTILITY THAT IS DUBIOUS AT BEST. DURING THE WORSE PERIOD OF THE COLD WAR NIKITA KHRUSCHEV WAS VERY FOND OF SUCH PRONOUNCEMENTS!
See again my previous blog entry a much more sober and reasoned analysis of Status-6 minus hysterics.
