More Legitimized Spying?

So, it seems NASA has launched yet another Spy Satellite.  The biggest one is history.  But why?  What are they spying on?  The terrorists THEY created?  Or, is it the OTHER bad guys?

The Spy satellite that was launched yesterday, (Sunday, November 21st, 2010), is capable of reading the name on a golf ball, sitting on the fairway.  Pretty impressive stuff, isn’t it?

The N.R.O claims it’s to replace their aging fleet of satellites that are currently up there, spying on us.  Sure, that sounds plausible.  But why something so big, and so powerful?  Just a little bit of overkill?   I suppose if you’re not spending your own money, const really isn’t an issue, (ask most politicians).

Although the mission of this Delta 4 powered microscope is classified, I’m sure there are many people out there with suspicions of what it’s up to.  I would also suggest their suspicions aren’t too far from the truth.

You can read more about what went down in Cape Canaveral yesterday at CTV NEWS and at MSNBC.
