I am beginning to think there may be a cover up going on. Take a look at the Japanese KAGUYA mission web site image gallery. They have only released a handful of images and they are all from the near side. Not one image of the far side of the moon has been released that I can find.
They were very open to releasing the images to the public at first but now the lack of images released to the public and the lack of replies from them makes me believe they are not releasing the images for some reason.

2.1 million pictures were taken by Clementine. But only 187,000 of those photos were shown to public. The rest are deemed "classified".
Here are some photos from Clementine which were released to the public. These are directly from the US Navy's Clementine website. They definitely show tampering like with Photoshop:
When I show people these photos, they scratch their heads and think what theories I may have. But the immediately dismiss them thinking its something wrong with the satellite. Some people just can't accept the truth.
The only other high resolution camera (it's not HD), is the Terrain Camera, which takes 10m/pixel resolution images of the Lunar surface. But I don't believe they mapping the entire Moon with it, just certain areas of interest.

They are image glitches/missing data. Try using the Clementine Lunar browser 2.0 instead of the old 1.5 version and see if you still have the same blurred out areas.
