Gotta love the title...
"Official spokesperson from Secret Space program"
So it's a "secret" space program but they have "official" spokespersons? Wow!
So do you think it is a possibility even or are you closed minded to the idea?
What other secret program the government denies exists has an official spokesperson?

Sheesh the Air Force has astronauts
While there have been (are?) astronauts who are in the Air Force, the converse does not follow.

Oh....about 35 SAP/CAP programs that i am personally aware of....but those official spokespersons only report directly to
the Joint Chiefs, the SecDef and/or directly
To the President himself...and NOT to any
Public or private agency without S or TS
What I really meant was a geosynchronous station-keeping position right over the pole.
it's very hard to see and track.
The first satellite (USA-53 or 1990-019B, 19,600 kg) launched for the program was deployed on March 1, 1990 by the Space Shuttle Atlantis as part of Mission STS-36. Objects associated with the satellite decayed on March 31, 1990, but the satellite was seen and tracked later that year and in the mid-1990s by amateur observers.
Over the years, the network of observers has kept an eye out for Misty, but none so diligently - perhaps obsessively - as Ted Molczan. Even after Misty "disappeared," Eberst likely spotted it again on three occasions in the late '90s, though it was very faint, even through binoculars. He wasn't sure what the object was; Molczan ID'd it as Misty. Many experts also believe that a satellite launched in 1999, known as USA 144 but unspotted so far, is a second-gen version of Misty.
