US Launches Giant Eavesdropping Satellite (Agence France-Presse 22/11/10)

Posted in Uncategorized by ce399 on 23/11/2010

The United States has placed in orbit a vast reconnaissance satellite reputed to be the largest eavesdropping device ever launched into space.

The largest unmanned American launch vehicle, the Delta-4 Heavy rocket, roared into the the night sky in Cape Canaveral, Florida on Sunday carrying the mysterious satellite on a mission dubbed NROL-32.

The National Reconnaissance Office did not disclose the purpose of the satellite but widespread reports in the US media suggest it is for eavesdropping on enemy communications.

“This second Delta IV Heavy launch for the NRO is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication by the combined NRO, Air Force, supplier and ULA team,” said United Launch Alliance vice-president Jim Sponnick.

“ULA is pleased to support the NRO as it protects our nation’s security and supports our warriors defending our nation around the world.”

It was only the fourth time that the Delta-4 Heavy — the most powerful liquid-fueled rocket booster with a massive two million pounds of thrust — has flown.

The launch of the NROL-32 had been moved back from October 19 due to delays for undisclosed reasons.

Cool, now our military can listen in on the Chinese as they laugh at us for basically handing them our economic prosperity on a silver platter.

What about the missing weather satellites? Shouldn’t THEY take priority? More people will die or be harmed by inadequate storm monitoring… while this foolish bird collects gossip.

I would rather our tax money was spent on projects that actually benefit US.

All paid for with “tax payer dollars”. When did we vote for this program? Democracy is a nipple for the masses to suck on to give them a feeling of participation and control…. fools.

Greaaat. What an excellent use of money, I’m really glad we have people in charge that blow billions of dollars on technology they can use to spy on people around the world. I mean we really have nothing better to spend the money on, it’s not like there are billions of people living in poverty or anything. It’s not like half the countries states are going bankrupt, it’s not like millions of Americans are loosing their jobs, houses and dignity at the hands of bureaucracy gone mad. Oh wait…. never mind. Sigh.

I wonder how long it is going to take for Banksy, or some other graffiti artist, to tag it with a laser.
