RUSH: Brainerd, Minnesota, Richard, you're next, great to have you. Rush Limbaugh, the Open Line Friday edition on Wednesday... Well, we're not doing Open Line Friday, but it feels like it, which is why I said it. How are you?
CALLER: Fine. Dittos from flyover country, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: Do you remember when Obama was brought into the White House and Bush showed him around for the first time and took him into the War Room and all that? You remember the look on his face when he came out of there, like he'd seen a ghost?
RUSH: I don't remember this. I'm sorry.
CALLER: He came out with a deer-in-the-headlights look. I think this missile thing is completely known about by the administration. That's why they're not in panic mode. Look, they're probably not in any way, shape, or form able to handle it anyway. But I believe that they're in complete understanding of what was going on out there in the ocean. There's a point out there called Point Mugu missile range.
RUSH: Oh, yeah.
CALLER: It's restricted, classified, and they don't have to tell anybody what they do out there.
CALLER: And if you get close, you are sent away. It's not like Area 51 where you can park on a hill with your binoculars and see what's going on in town. I believe they know what was going on, otherwise we would be in some kinda mode in this country because that looked like an ICBM going out.
CALLER: That's a large rocket.
RUSH: There are only two countries who would have shot this missile off without telling us.
CALLER: China being one?
RUSH: Yeah, and Russia being the other. ChiComs and Russia. The only two countries that would do this without telling us.
CALLER: Well, I believe the administration knows what's going on. Nobody's come forward and said anything, and if you call the FAA or the airports, they're not gonna know anything anyway. Anybody you're gonna get on the phone is not gonna tell you. It's in that category of "We'd tell you but we'd have to kill you."
RUSH: Well, I know. That's why the thing is very suspicious to me. "Don't worry about it. Don't worry about. There's nothing to worry about. We don't know what it was, but there's nothing to worry about." The two don't go together.
RUSH: All right, I just got a note. They're coming in all over the place. I got a note from a pilot listening to this program on his HF while at altitude. He heard the call from the guy who talked about this might be a missile at Point Mr. Mugu. He said he used to work at Point Mr. Mugu and there's no way a missile came from Point Mugu. If you heard that call, the pilot at altitude listening on the HF said that nothing came outta Point Mugu on this, it's not what happened. Just putting it out there.
That missile was 35 miles out to sea and Point "Mr. Mugu" is not 35 miles out to sea. It had to come from a submarine, folks. Look, there are certain things here that are just obvious. It had to come from a submarine. It's not a jet contrail. I've seen jet contrails all my life, and you'd never see 'em on the horizon. (interruption) Well, I don't know what's going on. We mighta fired the damn thing. Who knows what it was. The ChiComs might have had a sub out there, who knows, somebody could be giving us a warning. Don't worry about it, Snerdley. The Pentagon says they don't know what it was but it's nothing to worry about.
