The accompanying links comprise a (non-exhaustive) quasi-chronological sequence starting with one published four days before the notorious flight of a B-52 carrying six nuclear-armed cruise missiles on 30 August 2007 from Minot AFB in Iowa to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana. The link below shows that persons with advance knowledge of a stock-market-crashing event were poised to profit from a crash of 30% or more by September 21st ...and lost about $1 billion when it didn’t happen.
My first awareness of the B-52 event itself was via an internet publication (link below) forwarded with obvious trepidation by Jeff Latas, a highly decorated F-15 pilot of the first Gulf War and a former President of U.S. Air Force Accident Investigation Board.
There were at least three Washington Post articles on the B-52 event (links below). The first one below reveals that high-level military officers have been cashiered, and some may yet be court marshaled, for their parts in allowing those warheads to be air transported in direct violation of long-standing rules and virtually unbreakable safeguards. This is very different response than in the wake of 9/11, when the commander of NORAD wasn’t even given a rap on the knuckles for prearranging for the nation's capital to be totally without an air defense on that fateful morning.
Translated: The military high command apparently tolerated the propagation of the myth of 9/11 being the work of 19 incompetent Arabs led by one hiding in a distant cave; but this time they have “drawn the line” against allowing a false-flag attack with a nuclear weapon to occur against Iran ...or on U.S. soil (either of which would crash the financial markets for sure).
The following link notes the subsequent deaths of six servicemen who took part in the mission at Minot AFB, which I suspect means that these six (and likely others) sacrificed their lives to thwart what was likely to have been a false-flag nuclear attack ...which, if on American soil, would have been the trigger for marshal law and cancellation elections, in addition to crashing the financial markets and sending the dollar the way of the peso.
I find the first link below this paragraph to be a very plausible analysis (despite the errors I will mention below) by a woman who writes in Moscow for the newspaper Pravda. The second link is a western report of the same impact in Peru that Pravda reporter Sorcha Faal attributes to a crashed KH-13 satellite. This link, appearing eight day’s later than Faal’s column, asserts that “Conspiracy theorists will be disappointed” with what the article purports to be the real story: A meteorite done it. Oh, really?
Here is the way I approached the “crashed satellite” hypothesis: The orbit of the KH-13 satellite is officially secret, so it can’t be found on the internet (although Russian Military Intelligence surely knows where it is ... or was). So I looked up earlier-vintage satellites of the same series on the Union of Concerned Scientists Data Base:
I found that 4 of the 5 “Keyhole” satellites (all of them advanced KH-11s or KH-12s) are in sun-synchronized near-polar orbits that on passing the North Pole move westward with the sun during their 50-minute trips to the vicinity of the South Pole. Thus, if the KH-13 had such an orbit and was de-orbited during a north-to-south pass over northern South America it could easily have impacted at Carrancas, Peru, following essentially the same trajectory as reported by eyewitnesses on September 15th (third figure in the last link in the previous paragraph).
