Thanks for posting this very interesting story. I don't read/watch FOX, NASA or Al Jazeera so would have missed it entirely without your post and
ATS. Several items jump off the page:
"...the United States is not going to travel beyond low-Earth orbit on its own and that no country is going to make it to Mars without international
What is different now that prevents the U.S. from going beyond low-Earth orbit as it did when it put men on the moon? (Is the moon considered to be
low-earth orbit...what am I missing?) Is it that orbits are perturbed and unstable or is it that the U.S. is broke and needs oil money to go? If it
needs money to go why then specifically mention outreach to Indonesia? Is that because Indonesia is more westernized and therefore easier to reach
" 'We really like Indonesia because the State Department, the Department of Education (and) other agencies in the U.S. are reaching out to Indonesia
as the largest Muslim nation in the world,' he said."
The Muslim world still looks up in order to spot the crescent moon and begin their month. Most of the rest of the world looks to Nasa to supply data
and pictures and a calendar. If NASA is de-cloaking and revealing itself as a propaganda arm then it would make sense to reach out to a people who
still value direct observation and are not yet content to look to NASA for all heavenly information. Something to ponder.
