not in the databases

Tue Nov 27 16:01:45 UTC 2001 is floating around:

route-views.oregon-ix.net>show ip bgp 
BGP routing table entry for, version 12484641
Paths: (43 available, best #41)
  Advertised to non peer-group peers: 
  4513 13646 5696 568, (aggregated by 568 from (
      Origin IGP, metric 7602, localpref 100, valid, external, atomic-aggregate

[snip, route-views has more than a page of entries for it]

However, it doesn't apprar to be registered:

% whois -h whois.arin.net
No match for "".

568 regisitered to disa.mil, and a number of longer prefixes
inside the /10 are registered to .mil addresses:

% whois -h whois.arin.net
Kadena Air Base (NET-KADENA-NET)
   Bldg 792, Kadena AB JA
   APO, AP 96368-5149

The question is, do they legitimately own the whole /10?  If
so, why isn't it marked in the databases?
