What mission? Oversight? Pretty sure the DOD retains that to itself.
Who is given that mission by the DoD?
When I do that I point it out myself.
You could have just said you were being mindlessly pendantic.
I'll leave you with our president who is attracted by shiny objects.
I'll leave you to your Trumpisms.
I've never once mentioned the President in this conversation because his position does not define mine and the arguments merits fall beyond whether he supports it or not to my mind.

I can only guess Trump saw star ship troopers and cane up with this using his towering intellect. This is stupid and frankly anyone thinking this was a good idea has watched to much science fiction. Making a branch of service whos only mission would be launch satellites is stupid. Considering airforce would still handle missile testing.
