You don't think organizations such as Air Force Space Command, National Reconnaissance Office , National Security Space Office, or Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command deal with road traffic control?
Space is weaponized -- period.
VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- A secretive unmanned space plane is staying in orbit a little longer.
The experimental Air Force craft has been circling Earth for about nine months. The X-37B orbital test vehicle was due to land in California this week, but the Air Force said Tuesday that the mission will be extended. A landing date has not been set.
The plane resembles a mini space shuttle and is the second to fly in space. The first one landed itself last December at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California after more than seven months in orbit.
The Air Force has said the second mission was to further test the craft, but the ultimate purpose has largely remained a mystery.
The failure with the launch of Phobos-Ground (also spelled Phobos-Grunt) space probe, especially against the background of the successful launch of the US Martian mission, gave rise to a wave of rumors and versions. Even if the fact of foreign interference is determined, no one will ever hear the official confirmation to that. Such a conclusion will not meet the interests of either the United States or Russia.....
"One of the versions explaining the failed launch of Phobos-Ground said that it could happen because of the powerful US radar in Alaska. Can this be possible at all?"
"I doubt about the radar. Some sort of very strong interference could be the reason, though. It could be both incidental and intentional. Why could this be intentional? The US mission to Mars was launched very soon after Russia's Phobos-Ground. The US spacecraft virtually followed the Russian probe - it flew in the same direction. It just so happens that the Russians and the Americans had to control their spacecraft at one and the same time. It could be possible that such efforts could create interference, especially during the time when the probes were only flying into space, when the signal is very powerful. The signals from Phobos-Ground and from the US Martian probe would collide with each other."

Not saying a lot on this, but have to say something about Reagan's Star Wars program. There is NO WAY that man was NOT finishing what he started. I can still remember, too, right after it was "canceled", all of the "non-specified military payload"s that went up with the shuttles. Yeah, the stuff is up there. More reason than his attitude to think so, but can't really get into that. Will simply say that sometimes silence on a topic speaks volumes.
