    North Korea's super top secret military technology?

    It appears to be a Northrop Grumman X-47B Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (in other words a drone):

    Re: Alien conspiracy or new Super Drone...

    The video is a fake. Someone took a Youtube video of a JDAM hitting a Taliban bomb making factory, and edited the UFO into it. It is amazing that the journalist didn't do a better investigation before running with this story. The original video (sans UFO) is still up on Youtube.

    It's really not that amazing that the journalist didn't research.
