Details: Beyond Parallel, a project by the defense think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the images captured on March 2 are “evident at the vertical engine test stand and the launch pad’s rail-mounted rocket transfer structure,” per NBC News. Victor Cha, one of the authors of Beyond Parallel’s report, said the “imagery thus far does not show a missile being moved to the launch pad.” NBC News reported that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded, saying: “We don’t comment on intelligence.”
