Well, the secret's out now, isn't it? Let's get this story to the front page!

Thanks Jae, if I see the comments, I don`t see an expected public outcry, asking why our government wastes another x-million dollars that are so badly needed inside the country. But well, as being just a German-American, and not even living in the US, I don`t have to be taken serious, I guess. Ok, America dream your "American Dream" of being the biggest , the richest, the mightiest - just the number on. For one thing sure - the highest debt-maker in the world and even printing another 600 billion - backed up by fresh American air - hooray!! I love you Americans - never mind, just continue sleeping. Or watch that film and wake up!

Good point @ Harry Schneider.
Maybe we should all sing a song and do a commercial for ourselves !

This one is the decoy. The real satellite was the mysterious missile/contrail that got launched a little while back.

Ah, I suppose it's just because we've all become so jaded by the wasteful spending and the messed up "priorities" of our government...At least I have...Nothing surprises me anymore...Not that I'm shrugging it off and turning a blind eye...Just too, too disgusted and frustrated with it all...It's wearin' me down, dontcha know...
Interesting idea, Bruce...Let's all get up and sing that song "We're Not Gonna Take It"....Who did that, by the way...? Was it Twisted Sister...?

Debbie Johnson, yes it was Twisted Sister who did that song. I own a copy of it, love it.

And now that they have another spybot looking at us, can it help me find the things I have lost in the house do to that old peoples disease where you forget everything? I really need to find my car keys.

:::laughs:: Ah, yes...Thought so...Talkin' about my generation...Thanks, Deborah...I know the feelin'...We may as well get SOMETHING out of this Orwellian crap they're wasting all our hard-earned money on, right...?

I am thinking that many people were not aware of such a plan as to send this one up. Maybe for good reasons for them in not making a big deal out of it until after the fact. I am beginning to think we have too many signals beaming down on us all 24/7 for whatever the reasons they are doing so.

I think it may be difficult to launch a Delta 4 secretly.
Exactly what this satellite can do, now that's one question; who or what are they pointing it at, is the other.
Melissa, SIZE does matter. This is the military we're talking about. They have issues!

Noted. But Jae, it's not really much of a secret if everyone knows about it. Of course this could be a game of telephone some government idiot decided to play.
