    Default Launch of nuclear-capable Trident missile over Golden Gate Bridge

    For those San Franciscans who happened to be looking skywards on Saturday evening this was the ethereal and somewhat terrifying sight that greeted them shortly after 6pm.November 7th.
    With no prior warning and no immediate explanation - a nuclear-capable Trident missile was launched from a U.S. submarine off the coast of California and sent streaking in all its blue and white glory across the bay.

    What'd it target?
    "Hey Hillary, regarding the Benghazi Attack on 9/11-we'll just blame it on that movie, not my total lack of security. By the way, what's so significant about 9/11 anyway-was that a date my buddy Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground blew up a government building?" asked Obama to Hillary.

    The article didn't say. I don't know the range, but North Korea would have been nice.

    "Training exercise", no doubt. Maybe a target ship/area far and away. Bet that had some in the area puckering...
