Newly released documents show that officials knew a satellite falling towards Earth posed no threat.
When the Pentagon ordered a Navy ship to shoot down a crippled U.S. spy satellite last February, it claimed the operation was necessary to prevent a harmful fuel from being dispersed in the atmosphere. At the time, critics charged that the Bush administration was using the toxic fuel as an excuse to demonstrate missile-defense and antisatellite capabilities.
Now, there is new evidence that the critics were very likely right.
TVNL Comment: Is anyone counting the lies? The Bush administration has lied about everything. I can not think of a single example where they were honest. Not one.
