Mysterious missiles

August 9, 2007

Are you following the tale of mysterious missile that Georgian officials claim was launched by a Russian plane violating Georgian air space?

The Russians are counter-claiming Georgian provocateuring, which seems patently silly. Both sides are offering a variety of reasons why they could not possibly have been the source of the missile.

Now, Kommersant is claiming that the Georgians, after having examined the remains of the missile and declared it to be definitely, absolutely, Russian, have destroyed the wreckage. I haven’t found any other corroborating reports, yet.
