A meteor estimated at 10 tons, or about 6 feet in diameter, has landed in Russia doing a considerable amount of damage, mostly due to the sonic boom of its passing. A Mini-Tunguska as it were.
Some in Russia see a conspiracy. O.K. then:
Secretary John Kerry has sent an apology to Valdimir Putin explaining that an attempt to guide a meteor to crash into Tehran was inherited from the Bush administration, and an attempt was made to divert the rock to Austin Texas where it was to "derail" the presidential ambitions of Governor Rick Perry permanently. Not only that it would look like an accident.
The communication was discovered when SoS Kerry accidentally hit the "reply all" key when responding to Mr Zhirinovsky,'s accusations. The e-mail was thus sent to every news outlet in the U.S. except Fox News.
Mr Kerry has apologized for the error and asked the media to ignore the e-mail, which they have. This explains why you haven't seen this story anywhere else. Remember, you saw it here first.
Update: The one aimed at Havana got through. That Havana is still a city and not a picturesque lake is attributed to the modest sized steering rockets available to the Kennedy administration, who started the project.
