NEW - @WSJ confirms the @CIA & @DeptofDefense have a new "secret" missile - the R9X, or "flying Ginsu" - which kills a selected target with 6 blades, but no explosive payload.

-- "To the targeted person, it's as if a speeding anvil fell from the sky."

@WSJ @CIA @DeptofDefense #pt: The R9X, or "flying Ginsu," is said to have been used only twice, globally.

One of those times was on Feb 26, 2017, when it killed al-Qaeda deputy leader Abu Al-Khayr al-Masri in #Idlib, #Syria.

See the image I tweeted from the scene, that day:
