Satellite shot down, misinformation campaign continues, media play along

By Michael J.W. Stickings

CNN: "The U.S. Navy succeeded in its effort to shoot down an inoperable spy satellite before it could crash to Earth and potentially release a cloud of toxic gas, the Department of Defense said Wednesday."

But, of course, there never really was much of a risk. Indeed, this was all an elaborate, if transparent, cover story. There were other reasons to shoot down the satellite, political-military reasons, but, from the military, there has only been a campaign of misinformation aimed at deceiving the American people.

For more on that, see here.

  • Sounds like "Son of Star Wars."

    We had to show that we could do something almost as impressive as the Chinese who seem likely to be on the moon before we return. They shot down a satellite that was 500 miles up and I don't think we have the capability.
