Finally... the farmers in southwest Minnesota will now be able to sleep soundly upon hearing this news about the USIC's top secret satellite capabilities. This lack of knowledge has been extremely painful and troubling to them.

It always amazes me that all these "secret" files or budgets get in the hands of the media. What a surprise! The US used all of its intelligence capabilities to search for Bin Laden! What would be surprising is if we didn't use all of our capabilities.

When contrasted with the loss of privacy which has been imposed on literally everyone on the planet by the NSA, was the killing of bin Ladin really worth it? We've given up a lot that we'll never get back.

1 - Government spending well spent! 2 - beveryafraid, as an alternative perspective, paraphrasing the words of a U.S.S.R. cosmonot early in the space race of the '60's & '70's "I would just sit there in space watching Ameicans walk down the streets of New York City and at times tell what they were reading." Even on the ground, the KBG probably knew more about U.S. citizens than did the FBI, which was why they were oh so able to extract U.S. intelligence.
