Secret new stealth drone exposed

What lives at the U.S. military's top secret base, Area 51? A new stealth drone, with incredible new capabilities like 24-hour fly time, advanced sensors, radar photography, and wiretapping. CNN's Barbara Starr reports on the covert military project the U.S. Air Force won't even acknowledge exists.

    Do they test these things in residential areas? On Long Island we saw a couple incredibly stealthy and mystifying aircraft, one near our house along rte 231 in West Islip in 1998, and one above our house in Melville off Wilmington (near an Airport) in 2007. The first was about 40 feet across and about 4 feet to 5 feet in height and looked exactly like a well engineered black Australian boomerang. It was literally touching the tree tops as it moved steadily and north at about 5 miles hour (yes 5) along the side of the north south highway near our house. One thing that stood out to me was that it was entirely silent. Not one sound at all. It then stopped and hovered still and silent about 50 feet from our house, and still at that height. so my wife ran in to get the video while my kids and I watched it from our deck. It then rose at high speed to several thousand feet as an airliner passed nearby (in the video). I am a trained artist so I studied it for any detail I could mentally record because I had never seen anything like this in my life. It looked very stealthy with a black velcro like surface, and with evident solid angles on the wings. The other was just a black triangle with 2 lights underneath. That one about 150 feet above our house on an August summer evening in 2007 for several minutes while my kids watched it silently hover. They thought it was odd so my son took out his cell phone and started taking pictures, it then went straight up and disappeared into the sky (in the last picture it looks like a dot of light). I called the nearby Farmingdale Airport and sent them the pictures but the person I spoke with could only confirm they did not see it on radar, that nothing was allowed legally to fly in that space at the time, and that they had any idea what it might have been. Are these UFOs? If so I'd like to know which planet they are from and would like to see what's inside. Or are they man made stealth craft like the one in this article? That only begs the question of 'which country is flynig them?'. I would estimate this technology is way beyond what the airforce is publishing here. So is this disclosure a ruse to cover something we have that is way beyond this? Or.. gulp... is it North korea LOL heh heh? After what I have seen with my own eyes – these are the questions that have to come to my mind. Seriously too. The above is about as accurate as I can get. Anyone else see anything like this (Multiple witnesses both times).
